Hello, I love the features of the product---ideal for conditioning cats. However, can this product be used to prevent access to a bedroom? The STAY-AWAY is ideal for such an application. Set it out in front of the door and as the pet gets close, the blast of air released will cause it to turn around and leave quickly. In most cases, cats will learn within 1-3 encounters to "stay away". Other devices we carry that can help train pets to stay out of a particular area or room in the home is the CAT Read more [...]

I live in Queens, NY and I moved into a new condo this year. It is on the 4th floor. When the weather started to get hot, these tiny black insects started appearing at night near my light. They are very small, ranging from maybe about 1-2mm. I usually see them crawl on the ceiling around the light. The few I found not on the ceiling would seem to hop around when I tried to squish them. I've resorted to vacuuming them whenever I see them. I vacuum maybe 20 or so throughout the night. The other night Read more [...]

What is a good food bait or lure to use for marmots? Marmots feed mostly on greens and small insects. We have had good success with our leafy and green WOODCHUCK FOOD BAIT. Use the WOODCHUCK TRAILING SCENT to lure the marmots in by creating a scent trail that leads to your trap. Another strong lure is the GROUNDGRUBS. Trap wise, don't use anything smaller than a 7x8x24 LIVE TRAP. The 11x12x30 is ideal as is the 11x12x30RD. Here are direct links to the information and products listed above: Woodchuck Read more [...]

I have just bought a Used car. I honestly believe some person has died in the car. The placements of stains predicts that the person has lost their body fluids in the drivers seat, a little on the passengers seat and on the back seat and floor or passengers side. I have hosed, scrubbed and done the best I know how too clean up a bad messes but this odor is bad. Nothing like I have smelt before except in death.
What do you recommend? I believe it might be best to rip out seats and carpet and start Read more [...]

I need an expert opinion.... Referring to picture that is attached, it looks as though this is a springtail.  These things jump like fleas but turn to dust when you crush them.  I have seen approx. 30-50 at night right inside the sliding door to our concrete slab patio. I see onesies and twosies in the sinks and in the tubs.  Should I assume that they are nesting under the concrete patio? or possibly in the walls?  There is not really any abnormal moisture other than the typical 70%-90% Read more [...]

We have major ant issues in our pantry and kitchen with small ants.  I picked up my dog’s dish and they were all over his dog food, so they don’t really seem to be after just sweets (unless dog food is sweet).  I’ve put out three different kinds of  bait stations that have made no difference whatsoever.  We also bought stuff from Lowe’s to spread around the outside of the house and to spray around the outside.  Neither of those have worked.  The dog food is in the pantry, but Read more [...]

Your site is excellent. You seem to have a control method for almost everything except mother in laws and leaf miners. I can control my mother in law OK but I would be interested to know why you don't list leaf miner control in your A to Z listing. Carl Leaf Miners are a major nuisance once they get active in any plant. Small infestations in ground cover or trees can go unnoticed but when they attack our vegetable gardens, just one infested leave becomes very noticeable. Fortunately they're easy Read more [...]

Hi, I am in California :( and I need some spray to treat an area in my attic that once stored bat guano. The guano has been removed but it still smells. Do you have anything? We have had excellent results with the NNZ. It mixes with water, can be sprayed or misted out over the areas needing to be treated and will get immediate results.

We got bed bugs from an item (baby pack & play) from my niece, for when we would watch the baby. I immediately put it in the spare bedroom. That night my right arm was itchy & I woke to find these red very itchy bites on my right side, the side I sleep on. I ripped the everything off the bed & found 2 of these little fat red bugs which when crushed blood came out. This was 6 months ago. We've been spraying "viper" every week but kept finding one or 2 on the bed. Flipped box spring and Read more [...]

Cave/camel crickets.  They seem to also emit an odor. Is that correct?  Trying to get rid of them. Thanks. No doubt cave crickets stink. One can say they have a foul odor that permeates their surroundings. And if you get some on your hands it's really nasty. Now do they get this odor because of where they live or because of something biological? Regardless, it's strong and hard to remove. To get rid of them will involve one of the control methods detailed in our CAVE CRICKET CONTROL ARTICLE. Here Read more [...]

Hi, I saw your website and was wondering which chemical would be the best to stop the little white moths which are devouring my mountain lion taxidermy mount.   I first noticed them when one of the larva came down from the mount on a silk thread.  When I inspected the lion, I noticed multiple adults and some larva on the surface! Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Chris You most likely have CLOTHES MOTHS. Hopefully they're only on the lion mount so you won't have to do extensive Read more [...]

I had a sky light leak and black mold started to grow through the sheetrock in the ceiling. I treated it and repainted thinking it was taken care of. Now the mold is growing back through the new application of paint. Which product would you recommend to kill the black mold on an interior ceiling? Thanks. If you read through our MOLD CONTROL ARTICLE, you'll learn it's key getting to the source of the problem. In a case like this, no doubt the problem is a leak somewhere allowing water/moisture Read more [...]

My mother passed away last year and we cleaned out her house and garage from July to the end of September. Aside from the hidden entry points, we probably invited them in. Stink bugs must have entered the house through all of the open doors with moving furniture, etc., carpet cleaning with the door open, open windows with painting. The entry most used was through the garage into the kitchen. The garage was left open and had a wide grate on a heating duct where these bugs could crawl right in Read more [...]

Hey, Saw your web site, so you asked for pictures (I got them!) You can post any you like. I thought these guys were lady bugs so I let them live. WRONG!

You think they are okay.... BUT then you notice your wisteria is GONE! Bastard bugs.... and they smell too! I thought the smell was coming Read more [...]

Can you help me get rid of cutter bees? I thought maybe there was a plant of something that would repel them. Every year we spend lots of money, for us, on flowers and every year these bees chew holes in them. If you can help I would appreciate it immensely. This is an easy one. Cutter Bees will be very active in the spring and though in general they serve a beneficial role in nature, they can be quite destructive once they target a specific plant or flower bed like it sounds is happening at Read more [...]
