What is a good product to use for drywood termites when treating exposed wood? I came across a drywood termite situation in my friend’s house. They took out all the eaten wood and put new wood. Their contractor just finished the framing and wants to treat the new wood and previous wood before putting on drywall. What has the longest residual and knock down?

As a sole proprietor, I do not have access to laboratories that can test products and supply me with the better results. Subsequently, I have to rely on the advertisements of manufacturers, which, on occasion, do not perform as promised. Where might I get information on what works and what to watch out for?

I treated for German roaches in a two story apartment building with a bifenthrin product along with an IGR. I got most of the roaches, but some got away as the infestation was really bad. I’ve never seen that many at any job. Do you have any ideas that will help get rid of the ones that got a way? I planned on using baits next, but it seems that some of the other apartments now have a few m...

This house had major water damage. Now the house and yard are full of springtails. She has called several companies who've told her they will go away. The damage has been fixed and still lots of springtails. I'm thinking, after a proper ID, of doing a yard, subarea and inside treatment. Any ideas will help.

Which product is best to treat Indianmeal moths inside a home?
Submitted by GIOVANNY, CA
We use canine inspections to check our bedbug work. Currently, we are re-inspecting anywhere between four hours and two weeks after treatment to do this. We have had canines hit on a couch four hours after a thorough heat, which may mean that the treatment was not 100% successful. However, I understand that the live scent may remain for hours after a kill. In your opinion, how long after a t...

I was at a home where the customer believes he has bird mites. I couldn’t find anything and I’ve never treated for these before. What are some good products and ways to treat for bird mites?
Submitted by mike, KY
I have a customer that lives in dairy country. Every year, they have thousands of flies that land on their house siding, presumably for the heat. Residual fly barf/poop dots their external siding, windows and doors. Many flies get inside, but the customers has taken measures to exclude them. They want me to prevent them from landing on their siding or at least kill or trap them once they do...

What do you suggest when it comes to cleaning B&Gs and Birchmeier backpacks? Soap and water, triple rinse or bleach? For example, I’ve triple rinsed a B&G that had Termidor in it and I now need to use Suspend SC.
