    You’re the Best!

    I’m wondering what I can use to treat spiders inside the edge of a pool. I’ve been running my Webster inside the edge to remove the few webs, but is there a product I can use that won’t drip into the pool and contaminate it?

    Magic Pixie Dust

    Help! We are having a bark scorpion problem in my service area. The customers are generally 65 years old and up and have the belief that one "good spray" will solve their problem.

    Trial by Fire

    I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of my customer’s ants. They are all around his pool and yard. I’ve applied granules, Termidor and InTice gel and still, every 15 days or so, the ants keep coming back with new mounds and running around the pool. Any suggestions?

    Hole in the Wall

    I visited the home of a potential customer this morning and, as I was doing my preliminary inspection, the owner of the home asked me to take a look at something in his kitchen. He got his flashlight and shined it on the wall revealing a small cluster of two or three needle-sized holes going through the drywall. He then showed me a couple of other places throughout his home with similar holes...

    Blattella Brothers

    We live in western Pennsylvania and are having problems with German cockroaches coming from the outside in large numbers at subsidized units (they’re mostly duplexes). The pest identification was confirmed. We are seeing all stages on insect monitors placed outside along an edge (where the siding meets the brick) around the unit. The direction of the roaches is coming from the outside. It’s alm...
