    Stay above Soil and You’re Good

    After all the changes regarding pyrethroid usage around homes, how are barrier treatments to areas mosquitoes rest during the day, such as under and on hedges, bushes, plants , etc., affected? It seems these are gray areas. I have seen new language advising to direct away from swimming pools. Is this new?

    Bee Box Crashers

    I’m looking for some help with a problem I have with ghost ants. I'm a beekeeper and I keep finding the ants nesting in between my boxes that stack on top of each other. I've treated the base of the stand the hives sit on, but they always seem to get past it and set up shop with the bees anyways. I've used both repellents and non-repellents.

    What's the safe moisture level of structural wood? I've heard 10% is ideal, below 30% is safe and over 40% is when decay is possible. Any updates? Are these levels current? Also, what materials can be applied to wood? Borates only?

    Black Trees

    Since we have started treating yards this summer, a lot of our customers are having crape myrtle aphids they are saying they didn't have until we started treating.

What’s the best thing and fast acting to use to kill them? I hea...

    Mosquitoes in the Mist

    I was wondering if Cyonara 9.7 can be used in a backpack Sthil mist blower for mosquito control. We currently use Talstar P, which is a great product, but it does not last long enough and we would like a longer residual. Using a mist blower – is that considered to be ULV? These labels are so hard to read and understand! Your help would be greatly appreciated.
