    Non-Toxic Does Not Exist

    With regards to the use of pesticides in the school environment, most states have adopted a "least hazardous pesticide" (or low impact) listing. The term "without toxic synergists" is included. One of the very common synergists used, especially with pyrethrin formulations, is piperonyl butoxide. At what levels (percentage) in a formulation would piperonyl butoxide be considered a "toxic synergi...

    Awaiting The Warmth of Spring

    I have a customer who has bats living under the trim or rake boards on her house. They go under the trim where the siding overlaps and creates a small void. Since it is cooler here now do I have to wait until spring for them to leave, and cover the area so they cannot get back in, and then seal it up after we know they are gone? What can I do now about them?

    What's Mine Is Yours

    I service a couple of mobile homes in a trailer park. The people own their trailer, but rent the spot to set it up. German cockroaches recently started coming out of their kitchen sink drain, and a couple of other residents claim they have started noticing the same thing.

    A Cozy Winter Firebrat

    A few homes on my schedule have firebrats. In all cases the homes have shake roofs. Keeping the perimeter clear and treated has been our standard approach, but I wonder if this is really effective. Why would a firebrat ever bother to wander down the outside of the house to visit the treated perimeter anyway?
