    Strange Worms

    Our client has observed long thin worms inside the toilet bowls on several different floors of a high rise office building. I strongly suspect these are horsehair worms. The building has a history of American cockroaches. On occasion American cockroaches have emerged from dry drains and dry toilet bowls on the upper floors. What treatment alternatives are available to solve this situation?

    The Label Exemptions Dilemma

    In your answer to the question about earthworms you said that using a pesticide for which earthworms are not on a label would be a violation.
