Hi, I read your write up on handling nats but this is on the inside of the house because of a lemon tree outside the door with fruit rotting. They got the fruit but I still have a huge nat problem. Can a fogger be used in the house? It is a small unit and mainly in the kitchen. Thanks. No doubt you could use a FOGGER to kill what's inside the home right now. But will this solve the problem? Probably not. That's because whatever moved inside is no doubt reproducing inside if it's been more than Read more [...]

What do you recommend ? I forgot to unpack two knitted mink items. A Stole and a Bolero Jacket....last spring. They were in a box all summer. When I discovered the box with the items, there were white maggots on the Fur. I dusted them off and hung up the items in the air. Don't know where the maggots went, what do you recommend? Fur Cleaning for the Fur pieces or one of your products??? Please advise. Thank you. This is a tough one. Since the infestation has seemingly relocated, I don't know that Read more [...]

Going to Longboat for a couple of months with small dog. I react to no see ums. Just returned Oct 1-15 from Sanibel with many bites. Is Atlantic coast better for not having these terrible pests? There really isn't any difference that you can bank on. In general, there are many factors that affect when these guys are active, how many will be present, how long they'll live, etc. But above all else, they tend to be most active and thriving along the coast of any ocean, sea, canal or other waterway Read more [...]

Hi, I have these little knats in my grass outside. When the grass is ruffled, they fly out of the grass. They also fly around in the air. I have a little dog and have to be very careful of which products to use. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks much. The organic option would be to spray some BUG PATROL over the area. It's compliant to be used for organic gardening and works on anything in the turf. The stronger option would be the CYONARA RTS. It will no doubt work too but overall it will Read more [...]

Question—we get a smell from a closet in one room—we feel it is coming from the attic (the only time we get this smell is when the furnace or air conditioner is OFF). There is no force air circulation going on. At first we thought is was a dead animal however each year the smell comes back.. After searching on the internet our attic insulation might be causing the problem. NNZ or N7Z; are these products you can spray? Secondly if I can spray it – can I spray it on attic insulation? Do you Read more [...]

I have found some egg casings on my wildlife mounts. I am getting some hair slippage and took an antelope mount back to the taxadermist to check. He said there is a weavel infestation going on. What is the best product to use that won't stain the fur and is somewhat enviornmentally friendly as we have small children around? You've got a few options here. The exempt option would be ECO KO AEROSOL. Made from food stuff, it's very safe to use and if applied a couple of times a month, you'll get the Read more [...]

Hello, I have a case of whitefly infestation on my ficus hedge fence where the leaves have fallen approx 75%, and the remainder leaves will probably all be gone in the next week. Can the plants still be salvageable? If so, what is the type of treatment you recommend at this stage?  Also I have planted a new section of podocarpus hedge about a month ago in another area, and would like to do preventive treatment on them as well.  I have read your information on white fly control, but would like Read more [...]

We have a problem with tiny black spots the size of the head of a pin on our windows and door on front of our house. Do you know what is causing this and do you have a spray that will take care of the problem? There are several things this could be. The first thing that pops to mind is a mold or fungus. Treat with some MOLD/FUNGUS KILLER and if that's what you have growing, it will quickly die off and fall off to the yard below. The second thing that comes to mind would be spider droppings. If Read more [...]

Help! I recently bought a couple of log beds that were stored outside. I now have an army of the little buggers, and have killed about 100 in the last 2 days. how do I get rid of them without harming my indoor cats? I can't take the beds outside to treat them, they are way to heavy. Fortunately there are several options you can deploy which won't pose a hazard to you or your pets. The first (and most likely the best) would be to do a thorough job of treating the bed frame with some ECO EXEMPT AEROSOL. Read more [...]

Hi there. I have a skunk or something living under my main stairs in the front yard. My wife is concerned if I use the Giant Destroyer product: 1. the animal will die, decompose and smell for a very long time. 2. the product will kill the skunk rather than allow the skunk to escape out of the hole. 3. the decomposing corpse will permeate inside the house. Comments? Your wife is dead on right. In fact, if you review our SKUNK CONTROL PRODUCTS, you won't even find GIANT DESTROYER listed. That's Read more [...]

A red cedar tree in a row of the same trees looks dead (brown). On the bark are thousands of termite boreholes with sawdust and i saw some tiny termite-like insects crawling about. According to the info I gathered, termites do not affect or kill this type of tree. I doubt that this tree can be saved, but what can be done to save the rest? Here is a picture of the tree. The holes in the photo are not from termites. Termites don't make holes like this nor do they generate sawdust. But there is a Read more [...]

Hi Jonathan, I was reading your article on the website about scorpions and I had some questions.  I live in Tucson, Arizona and since I moved into my home in March of this year, I have found 4 scorpions.  I believe they are bark scorpions.  The first one was found in April and it was about 2 inches in size, found downstairs.  The next two I found were in July (found two weeks apart) upstairs, and were tiny..definitely babies.  And I just found one this morning downstairs in the kitchen...it Read more [...]

Hi, we have had a pharoh ant problem for the last month or so.  I have done the "three prong" approach spraying with cypermethrin inside and out, spreading ant granules outside in the area where I think they may be entering the house, and putting out bait stations.  They don't seem to be lessening at all.  I even spread some delta dust outside to see if that has any effect.  The only thing I'm thinking is that the baits (which were from a box I bought last year) might be old and dried up.  Perhaps Read more [...]

Do your products work on gnats (i think they are black flies) as soon as we walk on the lawn we are swarmed by dozens and dozens of gnats aroung our heads... we live in hunterdon county in NJ and have about 2 acres of property to treat... Did you read through our GNAT CONTROL ARTICLE? There you'll see plenty of options and yeah, they all work. Based on the size of the lot you're looking to treat, I'd recommend going with one of the Foggers we have listed along with a concentrate you'll mix with Read more [...]
