    The Supply Chain Strategy

    I have a quarterly customer who has an ongoing problem with Indian meal moths, primarily in the summer months. Last summer, I cleared out the pantry and treated the cracks and crevices. While doing so, I found and removed many pupal casings and fecal material on food packages and in paper bags and baskets. They have been fogging the pantry themselves and I supplied pheromone traps. They did...

    Ghost Holes

    One of our techs has a client with an ongoing problem with tiny holes about the size of a writing pen tip in both new and old clothes stored in closets, drawers and shelves. The material is anything from silk, rayon, cotton, polyester - pretty much any thing. The tech has placed moth pheromone traps, sticky monitors and Prostrips in one of the closets where damage is most often found, but he ...

    Refrigerated Food Source

    I’ve recently found some type of larvae in a refrigerator and freezer. My client removed all the food and cleaned the refrigerator, but now, a week later, they’re back. I've treated inside the appliance with BAC-A-ZAP to control bacteria. Any ideas on how I should treat this?

    Pet Traps

    I have a client who recently used glue boards to trap mice. Unfortunately for him, he has a short-haired puppy that became a little too curious and got one of the glue boards stuck to its leg. He called me for help and I offered what help I could, but thought it would be a good idea to get your opinion. What is the safest and most effective way to remove a glue board from a short-haired cani...

    Got Dirt?

    I have an account that once a year at the base of the house gets a mound of sand and small rocks. No bugs are seen, just this mound. Today they called and told me this is back and now there is sand inside the home in the same area from outside. I'm pulling my hair out trying to solve this problem. What is this?

    Is IPM Worth It?

    First, can you help me find ancient or even Biblical references to pest management chemicals and concepts? I have read of some, but perhaps you have others. Second question, do routine barrier sprays actually do more unnecessary kills of insects than good kills, such as carpenter ants or roaches trying to trail up the side of a house? I understand the need to stop ants/roaches from crawling in...

    Got Bed Bugs? Win A Vacation.

    I was speaking with a property manager today about bed bug control. He told me that a few judges in Massachusetts are trying to pass a law that states the following - the landlord / property manager will be responsible for putting a tenant up in a hotel/motel for the duration of a bed bug treatment, plus be responsible for any damages incurred during the treatment. This seems to me to be an imp...

    Bed Bugs Eat Pesticides For Breakfast

    Having been involved with bed bug control for 15 years I have seen many changes in methodology and pesticides as well as non-pesticide treatments. There are two products that I use often, Steri-fab and Bedlam. I used to time how long it takes to kill the bed bug and it USED TO BE within 27 to 32 seconds. Now I watch more than a minute before the kill takes place, and sometimes even that doesn't...

    A Bed Bug Dusting

    I have noticed in the last three months that on three occasions, I have run across people who use diatomaceous Earth in an attempt to control bed bugs. It is usually piled up on furniture, floors, beds, etc., and in one incident the dust was even thrown all over a box of boxes. I tell the customer to clean up the dust because it is a desiccant that will harm them. You can walk into the room and...

    Bites? Maybe.

    I have a customer who is getting bitten on her legs, but she has never seen what has bitten her. Last year she had another pest control company come and spray her house, but it didn't help. I'm not sure if I can help, and not sure what to look for. I hope that you can give me something to go on.

    We are heat-treating a home that's on a concrete slab, and our concern is the baseboard and carpet edge. We can get everything in the unit up to temp except the floor. We thought we would treat the baseboard and carpet edge with a wet chemical before we heat treat. Should we use a knockdown like Exciter or Phantom mixed with gentrol? After we heat treat the unit for 4 hrs we want to dust the ba...
