    Feathers in the Attic

    My customer was seeing small bugs the size of grain beetles with black hair. I tracked them to a dead pigeon in the attic. I removed the pigeon and my customer is still seeing the bugs seven days later. I cannot identify this bug therefore I do not know what else I can do. Please tell me what you think. What is this bug?

    Everything but the Kitchen Sink Beetles

    I have a customer that indicates he has millions of adult drugstore beetles coming out of the kitchen sink drain. Is it possible that they breed there? If so, how would one treat it?

    Polyester Pant Suits Are Safe

    We have recently found an infestation of carpet beetles in a house without any carpet. What makes it even more strange is the beetles were found behind a refrigerator inside an electric outlet. What could be the cause of this and what is the best method of control? Should we be looking for an infestation in any other areas of the home?

    We have a customer who has carpet beetles coming up from the drains. Customer originally put drain gel and bleach down drains and they never went away. So, we treated the entire house outside and inside with Talstar and Demand CS. We also put a fogger in the crawlspace, but they have come back after a few days.

    Food or Wood - It Really Matters

    I have a sample of what looks like drugstore beetles a customer is seeing in the kitchen of their house. They had them identified by another source that said they were Anobiids. They indeed did have Anobiid in the substructure that we have treated for. My concern is these sample beetles are not Anobiid and they have a drugstore beetle problem also. As the two beetles are very similar, what can ...

    Getting To The Source

    The local entomologist ID'd a sample as the carpet or hide beetle that has infested the fireplace area of our client's home. Inspecting both under and in/over the fireplace we are unable to locate a nesting area that would support this pest. The 4' crawl space was inspected twice. A chimney sweep took care of the upper works. I would like to hear any eradication ideas and recommended pesticides...

    Bugs On Rugs

    In checking out damage to oriental rugs I confirmed the customer's suspicions. They were told by carpet cleaners that they should be treated first, if in fact it was carpet beetles. The rugs will be washed, not dry cleaned. Is this normal a procedure and would treating first actually help? It would seem the cleaning alone should solve the problem. If I were to treat would an adulticide plus an ...

    A Need To Kill?

    How do I control Eleodes armata in Arizona? I do work for a pest control company but I am only advised to look at the labels. I have and have used numerous products claiming to control these beetles, but with little to no results. I would also like to know if the heat in Arizona would have much effect on the concentrated chemicals I carry in my service truck.
