    Field Mites

    I have a customer that had a severe field mouse problem. I eliminated the mice, completed a thorough pest proofing of the structure, removed basement insulation where the mice left a lot of droppings, and sanitized the basement sills. The customer is being bitten by house mouse mites. What do you recommend as the best pesticide to help eliminate these mites?

    Going Overboard

    I have a 90-foot boat with either immature American or Oriental cockroaches. We cannot agree on the identification in my office, but feel both species would be living in the bilges versus German cockroaches that would be in the living space. My question is which is better? Applying a residual, IGR and pyrethrum together with our B&G portable aerosol system or spraying where we can reach wit...

    Finders Killers

    Is there a product with quick knockdown for German cockroaches that can be used in commercial kitchens? I have some clients where the infestation is persistently overwhelming. The other half of my clients where I used the same products have complete elimination. Some of the common denominators are old buildings and aluminum paneling. Sanitation is not too bad, but trying to get the night cl...

They came back on service two months ago and she is upset that she is (according to her) still being bitten by rat mites. We have never seen actual specimens of rat mites although we caught quite a...

    Rat Season

    When trapping or applying rodenticides in a void that is totally dark, does adding some illumination enhance the process? Will rats find and interact with the traps better if there is some light compared to using only their whiskers and body hairs to explore the dark environment?

    Appliance Defiance

    How should a PMP deal with the need to move appliances in a home in order to inspect, place traps, close holes, etc.? On one hand, we want to solve our customer's problems causing them the least amount of stress. On the other hand, we don't want to be liable for appliance damage or injuries sustained in the process.

    Wascally Wabbit

    I am trying to catch or repel a rabbit for my customer who has an eggplant and zucchini garden. The rabbit is eating the leaves overnight. I tried baiting a Havahart trap with carrots and lettuce and applying neem oil and bone meal around the garden. Any ideas about what else I can try?

    -ins vs. -oids

    I’m getting ready to add mosquito management to my services. I’ve been reading the Mr. Pest Control Q&As here on PestWeb. What application method do you consider a barrier treatment? It seems a mist blower is the go-to in the industry, but, in one of your answers, you mention it is only used as a knockdown, not a residual. I intend to use a mist blower to treat shrubs, trees and eaves.
