    The BMSB Strikes Again

    I have a situation where a large 1-story office building is experiencing Brown Marmorated Stink bugs coming down from the suspended ceiling. This is a building with central HVAC system.

    The Lady or The Tiger?

    You suggested fogging a wall void to kill BMSBs in a structure. Won't this cause a problem with dermestid beetles feeding on the carcasses, and wouldn't that be an even bigger problem than the stink bugs?

    Bugs On Food Trees

    Are there products labeled to be used to treat ants and aphids in citrus grown at a residence (for private use only) in California? Are there any labels which contain imidacloprid that can be used in such a scenario? I do have a QAL, but have always turned away treating all edibles. It has always seemed too dicey.

    Does Big Mean Dangerous?

    I have a customer in Jackson N.J. who has horses on her property, in a very large fenced-in area. The ground is sandy dirt with spotty grass, and it is over-run with Cicada killers. The owners would like them gone, keeping in mind the horses eat the grass and cannot be removed (nowhere to put them). How should we proceed? Thank You - Chester

    It's A Girl!!

    As I was doing some research on solitary wasps, a question popped up in my brain after reading about cicada killer. The amount of food the adult female catches for her young depends on the gender of the egg. For a female it could be two or three cicadas. For a male it is usually one cicada. Now, my question is does the adult female know what it will be before, or after the egg is laid? Thanks ...

    Gray, Jumpy, and With a Coat and Tails

It jumps and appears to fly with very small wings. It also appears to leave silk on the leaves. It stays on the steams and leaves but not on the flower of the Hibiscus plant. No apparent damage to the plan...

    Dragnet For The Roses

    I want to know if I can use Dragnet on my rose bushes to get rid of aphids, or will the it harm the plants? The aphids I have are the little tiny green ones. I have been useing Bifen I/T at .06% to stop them, but they seem to have become immune. It is important to me that I get rid of these pests from my rose bushes without harming the bushes. Thank you for any help.
