    L’eau de Cimex

    We use canine inspections to check our bedbug work. Currently, we are re-inspecting anywhere between four hours and two weeks after treatment to do this. We have had canines hit on a couch four hours after a thorough heat, which may mean that the treatment was not 100% successful. However, I understand that the live scent may remain for hours after a kill. In your opinion, how long after a t...

    Don’t Treat What You Can’t See

    I was at a home where the customer believes he has bird mites. I couldn’t find anything and I’ve never treated for these before. What are some good products and ways to treat for bird mites?

    Flies in Dairyland

    I have a customer that lives in dairy country. Every year, they have thousands of flies that land on their house siding, presumably for the heat. Residual fly barf/poop dots their external siding, windows and doors. Many flies get inside, but the customers has taken measures to exclude them. They want me to prevent them from landing on their siding or at least kill or trap them once they do...

    Clean Me!

    What do you suggest when it comes to cleaning B&Gs and Birchmeier backpacks? Soap and water, triple rinse or bleach? For example, I’ve triple rinsed a B&G that had Termidor in it and I now need to use Suspend SC.

    How to Put Cane Toads to Sleep

    I have been having problems with toads. They are killing customer’s dogs, especially puppies. We have heard about using moth balls in the garden, but they are not really effective. Are there any chemicals that we can use?

    It Matters Where You Weigh Your Cans

    We are experiencing audit issues concerning inventory of our chemicals. What is the best way to track the amount of chemical used or left in a can? We have discussed weighing cans each morning and then again at the end of day for more accuracy. Just wondering how others deal with this. Our days of estimating are over in the food processing facilities.

    IPM – I’m Pretty Misunderstood

    Integrated Pest Management (IPM) seems to be getting harder and harder to convince people to use, even with the new generation of students coming through our institutions of higher learning. After explaining what IPM is and how it benefits all, an increasing number of naysayers only want you to kill their problem at any cost, such as the bees foraging outside windows and doorways when there is...

    On the List

    Where can I find a list of the non-repellent insecticides, specifically for German roaches? Does mixing a non-repellent with an insect growth regulator (IGR) make it repellent?

    Eyeballs and a Flashlight

    I have a restaurant that has fruit flies. I've been in at night, used Invade in the drains and scrubbed them. I have used Gentrol and Suspend SC, a dust in walls that I couldn't treat, and have covered everything and fogged. They will be knocked back and then they always seem to come back. Not sure what I am missing. I thought breaking the hatch would help and I feel I've done that. There...

    It's Not the Fumes

    A customer’s question was "Why, after an area is treated with a residual insecticide, do they still see German cockroaches present?”. Bear in mind that the area which was treated was underneath a stove that was dirty. The customer believes that German cockroaches die from the fumes of the residual insecticide. Is this true?

    Mighty Mites 2

    In a past post, you say not to offer pest control for scabies mites...and then say to put out monitors to identify what's there. So, if scabies mites have been identified, would pest service help diminish the mite population while the customer was working on other sanitation to eliminate the threat?

They have been duly identified as Lyctine beetles. The bottom is composed of hardwood plywood veneer. They are only emerging from one drawer, but there are 20+ holes and beetles.
