My thought is to use the measurements of the treatment areas to help determine the amount of chemical to have on hand per treatment, then factor in a labor rate and add margin for profit. What are your thoughts? This would be an ongoing contract as well as over the course ...

What is the best attractant for fruit flies? The setting is a restaurant with wine service and not much assistance from the staff. A combination of products has been used – to be honest, almost everything labeled for this insect. I can attain some control but not solve the problem due to poor sanitation.

I use glue boards in garages and laundry rooms to catch scorpions. Are they attracted to the scented glue boards or are they just passing and get stuck on them? Second question: How do scorpions detect moisture?
