How do you get people to clean up? I have an apartment unit that has German roaches. I know that spraying won't do anything! They won't clean up, and the landlord wants to get the place tented! This will help just for a little until more roaches come back in with more of their stuff!! Can you help?

As it begins to warm up here the question begins - how do I keep bees and wasps from coming to my pool? As a pest management professional I have heard many different answers, from nothing to changing over to salt water systems. How much is true and what can really be done for my concerned customers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated - thank you.

I work at a university where most students are off for winter break. If I put Catchmaster bed bug monitors in the room with no one living there, will the bed bugs be active enough to be caught?

I have a customer who has recurring cobwebs in the corners of her trailer ceilings. I have dusted the corners, used pyrethrin treatments, and web dusted them down. They keep re-occuring even though the home is immaculate. I am wondering if these cobwebs could be from a dirty ventilation system.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Just a quick question on keeping your tanks, hoses, and pumps clean from product buildup and not smelling. How often should you do a clean out of the system, and what clean out agent do you recommend? Also, how do you dispose of the clean out agent after uses? I have also heard you can use liquid dish soap as a cleaning agent as well. Is this true?

My customer said she is getting small holes in the front of her T-shirts. She brought one down from Virginia, and after washing it saw holes
in it. Funny that they are all in and around the same spot near the stomach area. These shirts
were brand new from a major store that starts with a "W". Perhaps moths?

We are in Arizona, and subterranean termites are my concern. One of our technicians has been asked a question on the state exam that we have not been able to answer. How much moisture is required in wood before termites eat it? They give multiple choices like 13, 17, 25%, etc. Do you have a answer on this?

I have heard of using vacuums for initial German cockroach and bed bug cleanouts. Will any good HEPA vacuum work for this, or do we need to stick to models marketed to our industry? This would seem to be a very effective means of population reduction, but what the heck do we do with all the live roaches/bedbugs we now have contained inside the vacuum?

For the exterior I have recently switched to Temprid SC and up till now have had excellent results with both products when applied per the label. However, I am having customer reports of increased spider, ant, ...

Any suggestions on controlling clothes moths or carpet beetles in a carpet warehouse, other than spot fogging with an aerosol? Pheromone traps and spot treatment are being used now. Some carpets are rolled and stored, some are laid flat.
