    There’s a List for That

    Is there a list of materials that can be used in an organic plant? I have searched the OMRI site and it is very limited. I am hoping there are more materials that can be used on the sites.

    Take Your Time

    We have a fruit packing plant that has a terrible fruit fly issue. They had grapes brought in from the fields that had fruit flies all in them. There are fans constantly blowing in the facility and we have asked them to lower the temp down to 37 degrees. What else can we do to eliminate the fruit fly issue inside this facility?

    How Inaccessible Should Inaccessible Be?

    Under Maine law, rodenticide stations in schools need to be placed in areas inaccessible to students. Are locked and anchored rodent stations placed in halls considered to be inaccessible in your opinion? In mine, they are not. Such areas would be inaccessible voids, wall voids, areas behind locked doors, etc.

Doors were left open, etc. I prebaited for four nights and set traps for two weeks with no luck. There’s no infestation, no droppings found and no sightings.

    Fleas or Flies?

    I have a customer that is complaining about getting bitten in the back yard. They have a dog and, about 2-3 months ago, I treated the back yard for fleas. All of the people complain about getting bitten, not just one person. I ask the customer if they have seen anything and they say no, but they get welts on their legs that really itch. Could this be midges or thrips?

    Air Dry or Blow Dry, but Not Drip Dry

    On the label for Precor 2000 Plus, It says to "Vacate room after treatment, and ventilate until surfaces are dry before reoccupying." Should we be doing some sort of forced ventilation, or is just keeping people out until it is dry adequate?

    Always Know The Maximum

    Do you have any tips for measuring granular use? What do you think of the idea of not applying granular in shakers, but 1) estimating square footage to be covered, 2) scooping some granular into a cup and weighing it on a digital scale and 3) trying to stretch that amount properly to cover the treatment area? Do you know of any less time-consuming ways to get proper rate? Do labels literally ...
