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?

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. I treated the office two times with Cy-Kick CS and Essentria IC3. I also placed insect monitors inside her office. Twenty days later, I inspected the office and no pests were on the monitors. No spider webs – nothing. Could it be somet...

I have a customer that has a problem with boxelder bugs every year. They also get into his home. Are there any products that are effective against them? I’ll inspect and try exclusion, but I was wondering if any pesticides will work.

This particular issue has me scratching my head literally. Customer complains she and her family are getting bitten by "fleas". I have inspected the home for numerous biting insects - fleas, bedbugs, mosquitoes - they have never seen the culprits nor have I. The family complains it's worse after a bath. I have thought of mites and suggested having a doctor look at the affected areas. Any ideas?...

We know that stored product pests cause issues with our food supply, destroying food both pre- and post-manufacturing. What health issues can these pests cause if accidently consumed by humans?

I have a couple of Assisted Living / Nursing home clients where the residents live in very residential looking homes. I think Suspend SC and Polyzone offer some of THE best roach control and I have been using Suspend SC inside. Its label says to not apply it in rooms occupied by the elderly or infirm. Do you agree that it should be the manager's job to find a way to move them to a another room...

Our company is in UT where it gets pretty cold in the winter, and most pest control companies shut down in the winter months. We are looking at offering an inside service only for the winter months, where we do a good inside spray, dust in all the outlets on the main floor, and do a thorough inspection of the house for any cracks, holes, or other openings that need to be filled in. So my questi...

I have recently been thinking about some aspects of pest control that I hadn't put much thought into. My first question is do insects feel pain and agony? Has this been legitimately documented and sourced? I think they do, or some kind of panic when getting DeltaDust or other poison on them. Second question is, are residual concentrates the most cost-effective way to humanely knock out bugs? I ...

I have a client who, along with his wife and child, have been feeling they were being bitten, causing severe itching for about a week now. They have no visible signs of bites and the itching is not localized to any particular portion of their bodies. On inspection of the apartment I found no fleas or bed bugs. They have recently started using the heat so I wondered about this. I'm leaning towa...
