    What's Mine Is Yours - Roaches

    I take care of a very nice restaurant that is generally pretty clean, but located in an older shopping center in a part of town with a lot of roach pressure. There are quite a few places in the kitchen where crumbling tiles give access to voids that lead to the crawlspaces, which is a series of tunnels that connect variously to areas under adjacent businesses, the sewers and to the storm drains...

    Local Treating Drywoods

    I have a 2 story home with drywood termites in the floor upstairs. Can I use Termidor or I-Maxx Pro for this? Should I drill around the affected area, or pour the solution over the flooring to soak in first without drilling? In 2007 I did the outside with Termidor and that worked well.

    An Appetite For Wood

    Have you heard of a Powerpuff beetle that destroys wooden beams in southern homes? I was told that to kill them you would need to tent the house and apply several doses of fumigant to kill them, and that they are much harder to kill than drywood termites.

    Bees Can't Kick The Sugar Habit

    I have a customer who stores returned pop cans/bottles outside in large containers for recycling. During spring and summer bees swarm around the sealed containers due to the high sugar residues.

    Hot Vs. Cold

    I work for a company that uses RAPID FREEZE (CO2) on bed bugs and I am not positive that this is the way to go, since I have had such good results with steam. Can you shed some light on the subject? I am aware that this should not be my only tool in my arsenal and believe me, it is not!
