    An Interesting Flavor of M&Ms

    I have a customer that has candy vending machines. He is having a problem with peanut M&Ms. First a worm comes out of the candy, then it turns into a moth. How do we treat the machines since it is food based and I can't use any pesticides? Do I tell him to dispose of the candy?

    Traps Are Your Best Friend.

    I'm having a problem controlling mice in a drug store that I service. I've used glue boards and baits (pellets and blocks) and still can't seem to control the problem.

    Correcting Some Misunderstandings?

    It Pays To Work For A Profit

    I realize this question may vary due to location and product pricing, but how do you determine a fair price for pest control? I have a request to provide preventive pest control (mainly for roaches) in an apartment building. There are 56 apartments total with 1, 2, & 3 bedroom units.

    LEED Buildings and PMP's

    Can you explain the role PCOs play in providing service to businesses that participate in the LEED program? Do PCOs become LEED certified or can any company perform service (for credit to the client) as long as that service adheres to LEED guidelines? Lastly, where can these guidelines be found? Thank you for such a great site!

    Price For Profit

    I have been in the industry for 5 years and about 6 months ago I started my own company in general pest. I only have about 12 clients residential and one commercial restaurant.

    The Role of IGR's

    A plant manager mentioned to me that another pest control company ULD's his other warehouse with just Gentrol. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Unless they are using oil and Gentrol there would really be no sense to use Gentrol alone as it seems it would take too much and offer no pest control. Does this sound correct?

    Movies With a Take-Home Feature

    We service two movie theaters on a regular basis. One of them is around 1,300 seats while the other is close to 1,800. We have been asked by their corporate office to implement an inspection/treatment for bed bugs as a prevention. We do plenty of bed bug treatments, but nothing to this scale. What would be the best course to tackle something so monumental in size?

    Bed Bug Repellent Clothing?

    The maintenance and housekeeping staff in apartments and hotels have been asking about something to "repel" bed bugs, something to keep them off their clothes. They are worried about carrying them home. Are you aware of any material that can be used to treat clothing fabric that may act as a repellent for bed bugs?
