Hi, We just moved into an garden level apartment and the carpet was not replaced. The manager had the carpet cleaned. Since we've been there we have been bitten by what I think are dust mites, nats or something. We vacuum the carpet daily and we still get bit. My concern is that my husband is a diabetic and I don't want anything to happen to him. I brought some Raid Max bug barrior, and sprayed it all around the apartment window seals, door frame base board, every where possible and it seems like Read more [...]

We have a manufactured home with an enclosed crawl space. Not enclosed enough to keep garden snakes out as year round residents which was ok until they found a way up and into our house! Now we've been seeing them in our living area and I need to spray. The crawl space is hard to navigate (low) - so I want a liquid snake spray for inside the space but something long lasting for outside. I know about some snake repellent granules for outside but what about a snake spray? Any suggestions? Go with Read more [...]

I've got moss growing on a section of my roof. This part is facing north and mostly shaded. The moss is getting thick and I'm afraid it will cause some kind of damage. What do you have that I can spray for moss on the roof top? Moss growing on roof shingles will happen when moisture accumulates that doesn't get a lot of sun to dry it out. And when the roof shingles are on a relatively flat section, the odds of moss or algae growing are greatly increased. To kill off the unwanted moss, get some Read more [...]

We have a log cabin in NY (Adirondack Mountains) and need immediate help with porcupine control. The logs are pressure treated and the porcupines have been causing damage on and off for several years. It is getting serious at this point and I need to get rid of these pests. I have looked at your website and products but am unsure which to purchase and which are most effective – Ropel vs the Liquid bird repellent. What are your recommendations? Both products can work but the ROPEL seems to be the Read more [...]

I have these fast tiny bugs seems to come from outside. I noticed alot of them underneath our crown of thorn pots outside our house. They are also coming inside the house but go back and forth on our baseboards. Then I found them on our coffee table when the kids leave food or drinks. I have tried over the counter bug spray but it doesn't help. These guys don't fly but they're fast and move erratically, all over the place. And when you squish them they're red! Can you tell me what these bugs are? No Read more [...]

I am seeing small tiny black beetles on the wall of my living room. They crunch when I squish them. Where are they coming from? I don't see them anywhere else. Most likely Black Carpet Beetles. These are small, round, mostly black to all black beetles which eat fabric like the kind used for carpeting, furniture, etc. Their laval stage is a small, hairy worm like creature which will reside deep down in the carpeting hidden from view. This is the stage that will feed and do all the damage to the targeted Read more [...]

Hi, I want to visit the Everglades National Park in Florida but I have been hearing scary stories about Vultures eating part of the peoples cars (Rubber) including the tires of the cars. My question: is there any repellent that I could use to spray my car with or maybe a cover or a particular color to cover the car? Do they see in color or black and white? Please let me know if there is any thing that I could do to protect my car. Thanks. Vultures aren't afraid of color nor do they care much about Read more [...]

We have found some silverfish in my sons bedroom, please advise us of the best way to get rid of them. The bedroom is under the loft and next door to the bathroom. Many thanks. Review our SILVERFISH ARTICLE which covers everything you need to know about this pest. The bottom line with silverfish is that they typically live under roof shingles, in the attic and in wall voids. Treating these areas with DRIONE will usually solve the problem but it will take a little time and effort. You can also Read more [...]

How big is a small squirrel compared to a big squirrel? I believe I have gray or black tree squirrels in my attic and I want to trap them out. I live in Toronto Ontario Canada and they're active most days. They seem to sleep most of the night but sometimes there I hear scratching just before dawn. There is a big walnut tree in the back park and I think they’re storing their nuts in my attic. Should I trap them in the attic or outside? If you review SQUIRREL CONTROL article, you'll learn that the Read more [...]

Hi - I am reading your information about eliminating Wooly Adelgid. I have 3 hemlock trees about 15' tall that now all have this pest. They have been in for about 5 years and now have the aphids. From what I see in the ADELGID article, it looks like the best non-toxic way to get rid of them is by using a combination of Concern Multipurpose Insect Killer and Bug Patrol RTS. Is this correct? How often do I have to apply each one? Additionally, do you think that aphid traps or aphid alarm would help? Thanks! Initially Read more [...]

I have a double-bed mattress which was stored in our garage. It was in a plastic bag and is clean and in good order in all way, but it smells seriously musty. Would NNZ be the best product to spray on the mattress? OR do you recommend another method of removing the odor? I can lean it up against a wall in our family room for a few days to allow the NNZ to penetrate and/or odors to disperse. What do you think? Any suggestions would be welcome. I can’t afford another mattress right now and I need Read more [...]

Hello all, I have a pickup truck that sat for a couple of years and was over-run with mice. They were up under the dash in places that are tough to get to. Is there anything that can fog the cab and get rid of the smell?  Thanks for any help. There are two things you can try. The first is to install an AEROSOL MACHINE that will apply ODOR ELIMINATOR AEROSOL. Set it to go off every 15 minutes. Now if you're driving in the truck you may not want to have it going off if the cab is really small but Read more [...]
