I have been seeing a bunch of what I think are boxelder bugs on the back side of my house. I just took a photo of them from this morning. They hang out in groups and it looks like they're trying to get warm. They especially like being around my deck light and the door to my breakfast room. What do can I do to get them off my house?   Right now boxelder bugs are starting to feel the cold and will seek a warm place to spend the night. If you read our BOXELDER BUG CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll learn Read more [...]

We’ve had a problem with fungus gnats inside and outside for the past month or so.  At least seven of our neighbors have the same problem; I also noticed them in the windows at my dentist’s office and yesterday at a restaurant yesterday about 8 miles from here. I’ve been told they’re coming from my houseplants, but I’ve checked the soil (I do not over water) and they’re not in the plants, however, I did purchase a granular product which I will place in the plant soil later today. I Read more [...]

Hello, I have a really bad cricket (mostly camel but I think every possible cricket) and slug problem. Is the Niban good to treat both? I also have many, many cats. Inside and out side cats are every where...we feed them so I guess they are not a problem. Is this about the safest treatment to use? I know the slug pellets are tried and true but I am very afraid that I will kill my cat or a neighbors dog. And the mud and fence do not seem to be practical for my problem. What are your thoughts on Read more [...]

Hello, I was searching Silverfish on yahoo & came across your article. My family & I have just moved into a new home. It was built in 2004 & the owner has taken really good care of it. We have a finished basement that my daughter has made her living area. We sprayed for spiders when we moved in a month ago and are now finding dead silverfish along the baseboards & occasionally a live one. Mostly we're seeing the dead bodies of them and in groups. One or two at a time but dead?? Today Read more [...]

I just found the attached bug on your website and it looks like the Boxelder bug. They are infesting around the side door of my house where there is a wooden deck and masonary block. Underneath the deck and door is a gravel bed of pebbles. What should I use and where to apply? If you read through our BOXELDER BUG CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll see several products listed that will control this pest. I suspect they are nesting down under the gravel so the first thing you should do is apply some DELTAGUARD Read more [...]

We have a bettle in our kitchen cabinets.  What product do you recommend?  How much should be buy?  And, do you have a youtube video showing the application process? Thank you, Anthony I'm thinking you mean Cabinet Beetle which could be any one of a wide range of common pests found in the pantry or kitchen cabinets. If you read through our CABINET BEETLE CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll see the BEETLE TRAPS which will in fact catch a wide range of species so you'll need some of these to start. But to Read more [...]

Hello, I just read your article and would like to thank you for all the information you provided.  I have two questions to ask.  Can a stink bug lay eggs anywhere other than leaves? The other one is would they go inside a mattress?  My situation was we found stink bugs in our public storage unit, two bugs were sitting on the outside facing of a mattress.  I am worried if they could burrow or dig their way into the mattress. Thank you for your time, Andrew In fact Stink Bugs are members of the Read more [...]

Hi: I need help with an infestation in my kitchen of booklice. Terminix identified the bug, but won't treat the problem. The problem probably started a few weeks before it was discovered. I cleaned out the 4 kitchen cabinets and threw out the groceries and have washed all the surfaces and cannot figure out where they are hiding. Unfortunately, the cabinets have a granite countertop that is dark and difficult to see the tiny bugs on. I have put down some glue boards to trap travelling bugs but I Read more [...]

I read your article. My problem is that I have 3 acres that is out of control. I have used the granules that you spread with a spreader. But at 20 dollars a bag it takes too much and I cannot keep up. The bags say once and done. A big lie. The ants are back. I have a lot of the little tiny black ants and then a lot of the red ants. To have a company drop granules all over the 3 acres would cost a fortune but I do not know how else to get a firm grip on the situation. Don First and foremost, maintaining Read more [...]

I saw a scorpion in the laundry room which crept under the Washer -dryer I  am thinking of ordering the traps # 826414 and CyKick aerosol or Eco D. #452833 Also a pests Heat trap #822742 . Please advise. Thank you. M.B. If you read through our SCORPION CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll note the products you listed are exactly what we'd suggest for use inside. But keep in mind scorpions don't appear from thin air. They had to come in from the outside and in all likelihood originated from somewhere on your Read more [...]

We are a new company that is specializing in the management of indoor horticultural facilities.  We are looking for something to combat spider mites, and were leaning towards some sort of fogger and a pyrethrin product. What do you recommend? If you review our SPIDER MITE CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll learn this pest is best controlled with liquid treatments that are both thorough and deliberate. BIFEN is an odorless material and though a derivative of pyrethrin, much less irritating to use and an active Read more [...]

Hello, I have a Moose mount that these little moths are starting to feed on. I want to kill them all. What is the best way to do this? Animal mounts such as deer, birds and moose will attract a wide range of pests that target animal hair or skin. Liquid treating the mount is not practical but there are two aerosol products that will provide immediate and long term control of this insect. Without knowing the exact species, it's hard for me to say what their life cycle/expectancy is in time but most Read more [...]

We have some yellow jackets in plants that we now want to move inside for the winter.  Is there a safe way of treating the plants (sword ferns) that will also get rid of the yellow jackets?  We live in upstate New York. Thanks! If you review our YELLOW JACKET CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll learn this pest will have one main nest. That means it's highly unlikely all your plants have different nests since yellow jackets won't nest close to another colony. It's entirely likely the yellow jackets have been Read more [...]

Hi, I have read your page. I am wondering.. I have yellow jackets getting in a void in the block foundation of my garage through a void on the outside. The inside is dry walled and I do see a spot on the drywall about 7 feet up that is a circle that looks like old wet drywall about as big around as a silver dollar. I am assuming that may be the nest area? They fly in and out all day long from the outside. This is the first I have ever noticed them in the past 5 years. We do have some in the ground Read more [...]
