    You Can Bait for Those?

    A new customer has asked me about wasps that dive bomb their pool and make swimming difficult. The wasps are from a large open field next door that has no access. Can anything be done to divert the wasps away from the pool area?

    Mine!

    It has always been my understanding that exterior rodent stations must be removed and returned to our office when we are no longer servicing an account. Now I have a customer that wants to keep them even though they have closed the account. I can't find anything on the label. Is there a law or regulation I can refer to? .

    Holey Cloth

    A customer has clothing (mostly wool or cotton sweaters) with holes as if being eaten. No moths or larvae have been found but the problem remains. We have checked the clothing, treated cracks and crevice, dusted wall voids, fogged the room and have gone back in with pheromone traps to no avail. Any ideas?

    A Hornet by Any Other Name

    How come hornets are not called hornets? In east Texas, a yellow jacket is a small yellow paper wasp. A hornet lives in large paper nests that can be anywhere. When I try to find pictures, I can’t find them on Univar's website.

    Spreadable Buggers

    Will the use of repellent products cause bed bugs to disperse further from the treatment area and spread an infestation to untreated locations? Would sealing accessible cracks and crevices in an infested area make bed bugs spread to harder to reach harborage areas?

    Doctor of pH

    I have read that the pH of water when mixing concentrates is important, but have yet to see measuring pH practiced. Am I overlooking an opportunity to increase a product's efficacy by not applying this knowledge?
