    Dust and Done

    I have a carpenter ant nest in the roots of a brand new oak tree that has just been planted. I say that because they only come up when the tree is watered. There must be an air pocket down there because they’re not even drowning. I treated the base of the tree and the soil on top with a drench. This happens to be a friend of mine. He just contacted me tonight saying they are crazy now (cra...

    Could You Crawl in the Crawl?

    I was recently fired from a job and am pretty sure it was because I questioned a few things (mixtures, application rates and methods) that I was pretty sure were not within regulations. My question today is whether or not Premise 75 can be broadcast sprayed for controlling termites. I definitely know for sure it has guidelines for inaccessible areas. But to be broadcast, for example, in a su...

    The Right Mites

    I have a situation that I haven’t encountered in 35 years of pest management experience. I have a location that has a mite problem in just one small cooler in a diary. The problem was first noticed about two months ago, around the same time every year when this facility has large numbers of cluster flies. The area with the mite activity is immediately adjacent to a storage area that has a ve...

    Blue Means Go

    Our thought process for the past decade or two has been to mount lights away from the building with the light directed to the spot that needed illumination and/or the type of light used such as high pressure sodium vapor verses mercury vapor. Mercury vapor has since been removed from the market place. Besides high pressure sodium vapor, metal halide and LED are what's on the market today. Ho...

    Yummy Cheese Mites

    Hello again! I sent you and e-mail one year ago about my friend with cheese mites. I was able to treat them with a little cooperation from them for better control at that time. Now it’s a year later and she’s getting them again. What else can I use that will work better for total elimination? They’ve lived there 10 years and have had the cheese mite problem three years today (third year in...

    Do It with You Pest Control

    I saw a customer today and I asked him how his bark scorpion situation is. He told me he has been seeing some in the house and got Cy-Kick several months ago. I've serviced his house with Demon WP and he has been using his Cy-Kick as a "supplement". I did not know this until today and said to him the mixing of these two products could create a cross contamination. Your opinion, please.
