    Small Space Fumigation

    I just heard about Nuvan Prostrips. What types of insects does it eliminate and how does it work? I hope I'm not asking too many questions. I just want to learn all that I can.

    IGR Battles

    Nyguard vs. Gentrol - I used to use Gentrol for German Roaches before Nyguard became available and I would see lots of twisted wings and deformities. I know that Gentrol "flows" along surfaces and into cracks. Does Nyguard have the same characteristics? I just don't see a lot of deformities like I did with Gentrol.

    Things Are Really Hopping

    I had a complaint from an office worker about "something" under his desk biting him. I put some insect monitoring traps up and when I returned there were a few specks on the traps. Upon examination, these were insects that are very small, with clubbed antennae (3 segments and a club), and some type of whip out the back end. The insect is hairy and a light tan color with dark hairs at the front...

    Treating Around the Occupants

    I have a couple of Assisted Living / Nursing home clients where the residents live in very residential looking homes. I think Suspend SC and Polyzone offer some of THE best roach control and I have been using Suspend SC inside. Its label says to not apply it in rooms occupied by the elderly or infirm. Do you agree that it should be the manager's job to find a way to move them to a another room...

    Persistent Roaches

    I have a home where we are having problems with German roaches. We have this home on a quarterly service and for awhile now we have gotten a lot of call backs. My technician has baited with 2 products, sprayed on every service, and also put out traps. We have done everything that we can do and want to know if there is another product that you would suggest. Thanks.

    Got Dirt?

    I have an account that once a year at the base of the house gets a mound of sand and small rocks. No bugs are seen, just this mound. Today they called and told me this is back and now there is sand inside the home in the same area from outside. I'm pulling my hair out trying to solve this problem. What is this?

    And Then There Was One

    In my 29 years in the industry I have heard many stories about ALPHA rats that refuse to be caught and now I have one of my own. This rat lives in a basement and has been hoarding dog food, stealing or trying to steal laundry, and digging a burrow under a supporting wall for six months. I have done all the usual things such as finding entry points (can't find a single one) eliminating dog food,...

    Day Dreaming Roaches?

    A customer commented that if a few German cockroaches are seen during the day in a particular area, it is usually a good sign that there is an infestation. Is this true or false?

    Time Flies Like the Wind, House Flies Like Garbage

    I have an account that has a problem with house flies. No dumpster is within 40". When they wash the floor the water drips through the floor and sub-floor. I am sure that food particles also make the voyage. The areas above and below are the areas with the flies. What are the chances that the flies are breeding in between the floors?

    Tim-Bor And Nozzles

    I perform Subterranean and Drywood termite treatments. The problem I'm having is with the Sub treatments where the use of Tim-Bor is causing my pump and/or hose to clog with debris. Now, cleaning my equipment would be the simple and true answer, but even after cleaning the filter and attempting to prime the hose it still clogs. I'm following label instructions when mixing. Can you please tell...

    Pallets In Production Areas?

    Is there anything under the FQPA or any known source regarding whether or not wood pallets are permitted in a food facility? I'm speaking of an inmate chow hall where food is stored, prepared, served and consumed. So far my calls and emails to my local health department have not gotten any response.

    Mites And Moisture

    A friend of mine has cheese/flour mites in his kitchen lower cabinets, as well as silverfish throughout the house. I've read that temperature and moisture are contributing factors. I have never dealt with cheese or flour mites. Do you have any recommendations for any control methods?

    Ultrasonics For Everything

    I overheard someone talk about ultrasonic whistles to repel stray dogs away from a factory entrance. Would this actually work? Are not these devices used for training instead?
