    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?

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.

    Point in the Right Direction

    What is the best attractant for fruit flies? The setting is a restaurant with wine service and not much assistance from the staff. A combination of products has been used – to be honest, almost everything labeled for this insect. I can attain some control but not solve the problem due to poor sanitation. I would like to use a bait or attractant that can compete with beer and wine to reduce t...

    Scorpion Scented

    I use glue boards in garages and laundry rooms to catch scorpions. Are they attracted to the scented glue boards or are they just passing and get stuck on them? Second question: How do scorpions detect moisture?

    After the Storm

    I live in the Columbia, SC area. I’m wondering, in light of the recent flooding in South Carolina, what effect will this have on pests? We had an invasion of ants and a few American roaches during the peak of the storm and my home was not even hit with the floods. Any special precautions we should keep in mind while treating in some of the heavier flooded areas after everything starts drying up?
