A customer called us about slugs/snails covering her truck. While we were out to service her home we noticed about 50 snails in the truck bed. What causes this? She asked me why they were there and I didn't have a answer. I told her I would have info for her soon. Can you help?

I responded to a call last week of large, sluggish Yellowjackets active by a sliding door inside a home. The customer stated that it was the third year that this has happened. I know that Queens can overwinter, but it seemed unusual

I have a customer who has little beetles that look like sawtoothed grain beetles on the floor next to base boards in every part of her home.

Do you have any advice on slug control methods. I am having a lot of customer complaints of slug problems. I have done a lot of research and spoken with other technicians, and they all say pretty much the same thing, that all the "slug" products out there such as pellets and baits are a gimmick. I would love to hear your take and suggestions on this. Thanks

I have read your posts on slugs. The problem I have is finding a slug bait that is labeled for use around homes by PCO's.

I have customers that have slugs as a nuisance pest are these treatable by PCO's and if so what product can we use.

From preventing slugs and snails from destroying my "Contrac Blox" in the rodent bait stations, I scatter rock salt in the bottom of the inside of the bait station. Do you find any thing wrong with this? It seems to work fine.
