    They’re Baaack!

    I have been doing a lot of bed bug treatments throughout Los Angeles and am often asked, “Where do bedbugs come from?” They want to know what country they came from or where they began. Any suggestions on what I can tell the tenants?

    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.

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.

    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.

    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...
