    All-In-One Solution

    What do you recommend as a good deodorizer and disinfectant for rodent urine and droppings? We're doing a clean out of a junk garage in preparation for treatment. There is a heavy odor of rodent urine as well as droppings identified as those of roof rats. Along with rat management, we need to remove the odor and, most importantly, disinfect (hantavirus)

    I treat the perimeter of many homes with Suspend SC. If I accidentally spray it over a lizard, will it cause harm or death to the lizard? Also, if a lizard walks over the dry residual, will the lizard be affected?

    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?

    Ghostly Spiders

    A woman in an office building is complaining of insect bites inside her office. She went to the doctor and the doctor told her that they were spider bites.

No spider webs – nothing. Could it be somet...

    Midge Quality Water

    With the heavy flooding rain in Florida this year, I have had the biggest issue with midges around clients’ homes that are near a pond or lake. The problem is worst around front and back doors. Is there some kind of a repellent product? I have asked them to contact their homeowners associations so they can contact an aquatic specialist.

    Empty Nest Syndrome

    I have heard that mosquitoes do not fly once the temperature drops below 55°F. What temperature does it have to be above for yellowjackets to be out flying? I serviced a few accounts recently while the temps were in the low 60s and didn't see many active flight paths. Now that the temps are back into the 80s-90s, the areas I previously inspected three weeks ago have activity.

    The majority of my business is spider management during the spring, summer and fall months. We apply either Suspend SC or Temprid SC. Both have done very well for me.
