I have a situation with an infestation of palmetto roaches. The house has a flat roof which is where I think they are. I have sprayed inside and out including eves and a foot up from the ground and the perimeter of house. I’ve also used granular bait around the outside. I have been back twice in two weeks. The lawn and shrubs are cleaned up. Do you have any suggestions?

Many companies use chlorine bleach to clean their floors. I was asked by one of my colleagues if these cleaning products could break down the smell of urine and disorient a rodent population. Is there any research on this?

A home and its structures have had exclusion work done to prevent rodent entry. The homeowner wants bait stations on the perimeter of their fence line to prevent rodents in the garden. Is this agricultural pest control? We are a structural pest control company and do exclusion work. I believe it’s not structural pest control and potentially endangering wildlife. But please correct me if I’...

Will rodent soft bait kill ants? I do not intend to nor have I used it for ants, but a couple of times I have found ants all over the rodent bait (First Strike). The ants appear to have taken some of the bait away. I'm just curious.

Do you have any tips for cleaning a backpack and wand of white chemical residue/chips? I think a rinsate bottle that had quite a bit of crust in it may have been rinsed into this backpack. It kind of reminds me of tiny chips of bar soap clung inside. Do you think the chips are something be concerned about? Do you think that they pose a chemical hazard?

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...

Are black lights useful in tracking rodent activity (mice) and does Univar offer these for purchase?

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.
