    Remedies That Don’t Work

    I come across rodent problems every day and hear all kinds of things, including using moth balls or mint leaves to keep mice and rats away. Are these things true? If not, why are there companies making mint trash bags? Are there other “remedies” like these that work?

    You Can Lead a Rodent to Water…

    I have an idea to apply salt to standing water outside of a granary, as it would be easier and more cost effective than doing the dirty work necessary for better runoff at this point. My hope is that the salt water will not be used by the rodents, which will further my success with liquid bait stations. What do you think?

    German Coffee

    I have several coffee shop accounts and some have German cockroaches inside the coffee machines that are coming from other food stores. I have applied Maxforce gel with hydramethylnon, Maxforce Impact and Advion cockroach gel and the problem continues.

    Dropping Like Flies

    When I was a kid living in London and we got flies in the living room flying around the ceiling light, my mum would get an area spray and spray around the room while we were in there. Are there area sprays like this now? If a client lives near a trash area outside and is constantly getting flies in the house, would this be the best approach? I understand the sanitation aspect, but the custom...

    Reasonable Pressure

    I’ve been doing a lot of bed bug jobs lately. My pump sprayers put out too much product to treat furniture. I use aerosols, but they are expensive. Besides buying a portable aerosol unit, do you know of any good sprayers or nozzles I could use?

    Marina del Web

    I have an opportunity to bid on a spider and web management program at a marina. How would you effectively bid on this? My thought is to use the measurements of the treatment areas to help determine the amount of chemical to have on hand per treatment, then factor in a labor rate and add margin for profit. What are your thoughts? This would be an ongoing contract as well as over the course ...

    Drywood Drill & Foam

    Regarding foaming a wall void for spot treatment of drywood termites, I can't decide on Bora-Care or Termidor Foam. I assume Bora-Care will penetrate the wood better and provide a remedial treatment as well as prevention. I'm not so sure about Termidor Foam. Can you offer any suggestions?

    Not Enough Tanks

    We use several products throughout the day for different properties. We are thinking about getting a truck mounted power sprayer. My question is, if you have a 100-gallon water tank for the day, how do you switch between products? Is there some type of injector that can put a specific amount of product into the water stream? Or, are you stuck with the product you put into 100 gallons of wat...

    Brown-Bandeds Go Everywhere

    I have an apartment with German cockroaches that I’ve treated many times where sanitation is not a problem. When I check back, she tells me she is seeing them in the living room and bedrooms. I have left sticky traps to monitor and only ever have evidence that they are in the kitchen. Finally, the other day I saw one running the walls in the living room. I am using Maxforce and Arilon. I'm ...
