    Now You See ‘Em

    I have a customer that is getting bitten by something. I checked for bed bugs and fleas but didn’t find anything. I set out a glue board under a lamp one night and returned the following day to find insects that I identified to be in the biting midge family. What exactly is a biting midge? If that is in fact what they are, how do I get rid of them?

    Take Your Time

    We have a fruit packing plant that has a terrible fruit fly issue. They had grapes brought in from the fields that had fruit flies all in them. There are fans constantly blowing in the facility and we have asked them to lower the temp down to 37 degrees. What else can we do to eliminate the fruit fly issue inside this facility?

    Fleas or Flies?

    I have a customer that is complaining about getting bitten in the back yard. They have a dog and, about 2-3 months ago, I treated the back yard for fleas. All of the people complain about getting bitten, not just one person. I ask the customer if they have seen anything and they say no, but they get welts on their legs that really itch. Could this be midges or thrips?

    Laying On The Regulations?

    With the restrictions on the use of pest control products in areas where they will eventually end up in a water source, how do you recommend treating for small flies living in commercial kitchen (school kitchen) grease traps? I have such a problem where the flies are finding their way from the trap to the kitchen.

    Time Flies Like the Wind, House Flies Like Garbage

    I have an account that has a problem with house flies. No dumpster is within 40". When they wash the floor the water drips through the floor and sub-floor. I am sure that food particles also make the voyage. The areas above and below are the areas with the flies. What are the chances that the flies are breeding in between the floors?

    We have a customer that recently had the black worms coming up in his commode identified as "black scavenger fly larvae" or Sepsidae larvae. We are unfamiliar with this fly species. Would this infestation be treated like a drain fly infestation?
