    Ambient Flies

    The scenario is an outdoor Jamaican restaurant on resort grounds near a beach. The flies are moderate until fish is served. Ambiance is a huge factor to management who wants a real Caribbean experience for customers. Fly sticks and fly bags are not an option because they are ugly and must be changed too often. The management only allows an insect light trap in the small indoor food prep are...

    Point in the Right Direction

    What is the best attractant for fruit flies? The setting is a restaurant with wine service and not much assistance from the staff. A combination of products has been used – to be honest, almost everything labeled for this insect. I can attain some control but not solve the problem due to poor sanitation. I would like to use a bait or attractant that can compete with beer and wine to reduce t...

    Midge Quality Water

    With the heavy flooding rain in Florida this year, I have had the biggest issue with midges around clients’ homes that are near a pond or lake. The problem is worst around front and back doors. Is there some kind of a repellent product? I have asked them to contact their homeowners associations so they can contact an aquatic specialist.

    All Is Not Lost

    From time to time, a friend of mine asks me to "come take a look at something". They are a family with seven kids and move around to different rentals. Usually, the answer is simple—clean this up, keep this sealed, move this or keep the screen doors shut. The problem now is gnats, a lot of them. It took about 10 seconds to find a long-term leak inside the walls of the bathroom, kitchen, ups...

    Fermented Scented

    Is there any kind of pheromone sticky trap for gnats? I know in some situations you can almost never get rid of them 100% no matter how you clean, but if we can at least keep them away from areas where people are working, eating, etc.

    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?
