    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?

The issue started as a few raccoons using his pool for water and the roof of the upstairs balcony to defecate. Now he is confident that the original raccoons are gone, but every week or two, raccoons invade the pool and defecate on the balcony roof in the same area. His ba...

    I'm getting ready to add pest control services to my termite company. One problem – I’m not sure what or how to charge for these services. I know you can’t do that either, but maybe you can shed some light on this for me?.

    Dust and Done

    I have a carpenter ant nest in the roots of a brand new oak tree that has just been planted. I say that because they only come up when the tree is watered.

He just contacted me tonight saying they are crazy now (cra...
