I saw a customer today and I asked him how his bark scorpion situation is. He told me he has been seeing some in the house and got Cy-Kick several months ago. I've serviced his house with Demon WP and he has been using his Cy-Kick as a "supplement". I did not know this until today and said to him the mixing of these two products could create a cross contamination. Your opinion, please.

Being in an agricultural setting and all the variables that go along with such – like multiple food sources, surrounding plowed fields, sheep, goats, chickens, cows, etc. – it has a major mouse and rat problem. Each time I visit, around 30 Contrac Blox are gone, about 10 a day. The site is approximatel...

Boxelder bugs are a real problem for a lot of my customers here. They get all over the sunny sides of their houses, all the way up to the second and third story, inside windows and anywhere their pesky little bodies will allow. Is there any effective way to control them?

I have a two-story commercial building that keeps having an American roach problem. I found a drain on the first floor that was open, so I asked them to cap it. It seemed to help, but the problem persists. I have sprayed with Suspend and baited with Larva-Lur, which also has helped, but I still seem to have a lot of roaches in my glue traps. Every time I go to retreat on a monthly basis, th...

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?

I actually have two questions. First, I have been working on a renovated home that has a German roach infestation. What is the quickest way to get a control of the matter? There is no food for them, but they will not go away.
Second, I have a home that I have been treating that is getting wood roaches (American roaches) in their attic. I started to treat in there and now they are comin...

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.
