Q: Will the use of repellent products cause bed bugs to disperse further from the treatment area and spread an infestation to untreated locations?-- Stephanie, FL A: Studies have shown that bed bugs don’t sense dried repellent residues like cockroaches and ants and will walk across and even sit on them. However, there’s a better chance of bed bugs picking up a lethal dose from sitting on dried residue for some time than by walking across it, so application to harborages is key. They’ll still run away from a direct application of a repellen...

Q: What is the home range of a Norway rat and a roof rat from their nesting place?-- Joey, MSA: The average for commensal rats is a 25-100 foot radius, but the reality is that it depends on how close a food source is located. If a rat can find food within 10 feet of its nest, it has no reason to go further in search of food. But if it has to go beyond 100 feet in search of food, then it will. It depends on the situation and it’s important not to limit your mindset to textbook numbers.

When Nate first moved to the west coast from his home in Washington, D.C., he was in for a bit of culture shock. Growing up near the Mason-Dixon line, he’d always been accustomed to friendly discussions with neighbors and other locals. But in California, it seemed people drove directly into their garages and called it a night — not the easiest environment to connect with people.   The year was 1998 and Nate was kicking off a career in pest management that would go quite far, quite fast. Starting off as a route technician, he soon became Orange Co...

Q. Can a crack and crevice treatment be performed with a microencapsulated product in an office while people are working? -- George, CA A. The answer mostly depends on the product label. Product labels normally have restrictions against applications in occupied patient rooms or classrooms. They may have an additional restriction against applications when occupants are in the immediate area or room being treated. So you should choose a product that doesn’t have this additional restriction. However, I don’t recommend spraying a liquid product ...

If there’s one word that seems to frame every element of Cris’ life, it’s drive. For starters, you’ll find her at the golf course, driver in hand, almost every weekend. Cris had toyed with the sport on and off for years, but started playing seriously around 2007. Since then she’s upped her game, lowered her handicap, and made her way to the Masters twice — as a spectator, at least.  “It was awesome and was definitely on my bucket list,” she said of the tournament. Her enthusiasm about “the holy grail of a...
