    Ambient Flies

    The scenario is an outdoor Jamaican restaurant on resort grounds near a beach. The flies are moderate until fish is served. Ambiance is a huge factor to management who wants a real Caribbean experience for customers. Fly sticks and fly bags are not an option because they are ugly and must be changed too often. The management only allows an insect light trap in the small indoor food prep are...

    Inspection is Hunting

    We are currently servicing a commercial kitchen and the German cockroaches there seem to be getting worse. Our approach so far has been to use a non-repellent spray along with cockroach bait that includes an IGR. We have had success with this in the past but it isn't working in this account. The customer is having the kitchen cleaned often, but they have on occasion used repellent products...

    Treat the Source

    We have a very stubborn customer that tells us she sees dead American cockroaches all over the place and wants us to come back and retreat. We have retreated twice and she still sees dead roaches. My thinking is that they are dead and what more can we do? They are getting in somewhere, running into our product and dying. She screams at us and tells us that we’re not doing our job. I tried t...

    Blowing Smoke

    I've been doing a rat job in Riverside, CA for over a year. I've done the exclusion work and activity stopped for a couple of weeks and calms down every now and then, but they continue to get rats in the attic. I've caught over 20 rats. The owner, property management and another pest management company have tried and we still can’t find the entry point. What else can we do?

    Not Simply the Best

    What is the absolute best insecticide for German cockroaches in restaurants? We are using an esfenvalerate product and are probably going to switch to a non-repellent product. Is this a good call or are there better products for German cockroaches? We also bait with cockroach gel.

    Stick with the Best

    I have a customer who has pre-finished reclaimed oak flooring that comes in panels like laminate flooring. The floors where installed about two years ago. They are they are seeing small 1/8-inch circular holes in several spots that have little piles of fine dust being pushed out. I'm pretty sure they are being caused by true powderpost beetles. I was able to find and remove one adult beetle...

    Problem Spreading

    I am dealing with a German roach issue in an apartment complex broken into buildings. The maintenance people seem to think it's okay to leave whole panels out under kitchen and bathroom sinks for access to the plumbing. One building has at least 12 units with roaches. I've tried everything from baiting, dusting, baiting and dusting, to recently hitting all of the penetrations with a knockdow...

    Legal Voids

    I have read in many places regarding homes with scorpions that electrical outlet covers should be removed, the outlet dusted and the cover replaced. I don't understand how this is legal. What if the resident, future resident or worker opens a cover to work on the wiring and gets dust all over their hands? How could we not be liable for that?

    Mysterious Ghosts

    We seem to be having more of an issue with ghost ants lately. Making the best with what is available seems to be a concern. With all the new things available for ants, it seems even more confusing. We have a standard procedure of using sweet baits to eliminate ghost ants but callbacks this year seem to be more. We also use a non-repellent residual on the exterior, one foot up and one foot o...

    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...

    No Pests, No Problem

    We have a customer who has hired us two different times to remedy rat mites. The first time, one and a half years ago, they canceled after a few months when the lady said she had no more problems. 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...
