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...

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.

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. This causes issues with both employees and customers. What would be the best way to treat this situation? Thanks

Controlling Bedbugs - If there are no products that kill the eggs how can we ever control bedbugs?

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!

Will using a pyrethroid such as bifenthrin or cypermethrin on the next service after applying a non-repellent (e.g. Termidor) negate the effect of the non-repellent?

My company has good results with our bedbug program, but I worry about resistant bed bugs. We constantly are rotating products. How are Phantom, aerosols and Talstar P working out in the field? Where can I find a book on bed bug info and a book on pesticide info?

Just wondering if there is any effect on Dragnet FT left in my B&G hand tank, with a "freeze / thaw" cycle. Most of the time there is very little left in my tank.
Thanks. Love the site by the way.
