    Snakes And Social Lives

    Some questions about snake pits please. Where and how do they occur, can snakes make their pits anywhere they want or is the pit already made by other snakes? Can a snake make its pit in a hole such as a gopher hole? Can snakes make pits near residental areas or only out where there's nobody around? Please help me out with as much information as you can give me. Thank you

    Snake Stoppers?

    Most labels on synthetic pyrethroids warn of extreme toxicity to fish. I have always assumed this applied to amphibians and reptiles as well. Am I correct? If so, would pyrethroids be a good repellant to snakes? Thank you - Barry

    Don't Shoot The Messenger!!

    I have a client who became very angry when I told him there was no specific insecticide for killing lizards or geckos. I told him that when we exterminate his home and perimeter and get rid of the bugs that the lizards are feeding on, it would help his problem. I also suggested an examination of his home to find any openings they could be coming in through, and the application of a bleach and w...

    Are the Wasps Getting Wimpy?

    I live in southern West Virginia and I keep approx. 3-4 acres around my house mowed and trimmed (to keep the snakes back).

    Scaling Into the House

    What can I do about lizards? I have been using glue boards with some success. Is there anything I can get to deter the little creatures. They seem to be entering on a back porch that has a lot of flowers and mulch.

The problem is that the pallets, cases and even the bottles come into the facilities full of all types of bugs and animals, from snakes to scorpions, not to mention roache...

    Keeping snakes away

    I frequently am asked if there is a product available to repel snakes? (Gardener snakes in particular.)

I've been told that you can find a product that you sprinkle in the rocks that consists of a fiberglass material. Have you tried that method? Okay, that sums it up. Thank you...
