    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 ...

My customers don't like to...

    Eight Legs and the Backstroke

    I have a customer who gets about 2-3 dozen spiders (small about 3/8 inch, black) in his in-ground pool each morning, which then just disappear in the late morning. They do not seem to die and drown. They are all alive and look like they are going for a daily swim. They are never found by the rocks and pavement around the pool and they never see any throughout the yard. What kind would they be a...

    You’re the Best!

    I’m wondering what I can use to treat spiders inside the edge of a pool. I’ve been running my Webster inside the edge to remove the few webs, but is there a product I can use that won’t drip into the pool and contaminate it?

    Sack the Sacs

    When treating for black widow spiders, is there anything extra that needs to be done to kill the spiders that are inside the eggs? Will a residual pesticide be enough to kill the emerging spiders? Is there any pesticide that penetrates spider egg sacs? Also, what is the gestation period for black widow spiders?

    DIY Research

    I live in an area where spiders are a major part of my business. Exterior spraying of homes and businesses is the majority of my summer work. I currently use Talstar with good results for sixty to seventy days. Is there another product that can be added to Talstar that would extend the residual and still be safe to use on ornamentals?

    Life to Black Widows?

    An industrial client called us about black widows in their paint shop. Upon inspection I found black widows and multiple other species of spiders in the four ventilation ducts. This is a relatively small area where mining equipment is spray painted. I was amazed at the large number of spiders living in paint fumes. I was wondering if you could bat that around a little.
