    The Role of Credibility

    I'm trying to find information on pesticide safety for a customer. I was out to do a bed bug treatment and one elderly resident showed high concerns that if I found active bed bugs that the products we used could seriously harm her. I tried to explain how and where we use applications for the bed bug issue using crack and crevice treatments. Any info that i can print out for them will be very h...

    Might Be Bites, Might Not

    This particular issue has me scratching my head literally. Customer complains she and her family are getting bitten by "fleas". I have inspected the home for numerous biting insects - fleas, bedbugs, mosquitoes - they have never seen the culprits nor have I. The family complains it's worse after a bath. I have thought of mites and suggested having a doctor look at the affected areas. Any ideas?...

    Is Anything "Safe"?

    What pest control residual would be a safe alternative to pyrethrins to use in my every day commercial accounts? Would Alpine be a good choice? I have been using traps and baits, but I would like to be able to use a safe residual as well, especially where people are present. I understand about the food handling aspect of Alpine, so it also is restrictive in some regard as well.
