Help! We are having a bark scorpion problem in my service area. The customers are generally 65 years old and up and have the belief that one "good spray" will solve their problem. We have a separate scorpion program but, when we explain many of the things you have suggested in the past, we are met with blank stares. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm getting ready to add pest control services to my termite company. One problem – I’m not sure what or how to charge for these services. I know you can’t do that either, but maybe you can shed some light on this for me?.

Is it legal to transport pesticides in the back of a van or station wagon? If so, does it need to be in an airtight box in the back?

I am new at the business and in a semi-small town. Any advice on getting customers? Advertising? Or do you think pounding on doors is better?

In your opinion, what is the difference between a pest control technician and a "spray jockey" or a "Dale Gribble" type besides the official stuff like training and accreditation.

I want to have a set price for carpenter ant work and sell them over the phone to potential customers. I am just wondering if it is necessary to do an inspection first. I am afraid if I sell them over the phone I might be in violation of some state law. Can you find out?

Wood wasp problems - is fumigation the answer for an impatient customer, or do I insist that we let nature take it's course?

I have looked in many books and on the internet and I can't seem to find out who is considered the "Father of Pest Control" or even the "Father of Entomology" Would you know? Thanks!

Not a question, but just a comment. Thank you for mentioning the most important (okay, the 2nd most important) tool for killing cockroaches in reference to It's A Mall World. That would be KNEEPADS. And obviously, the most important tool is a great flashlight.
