I enjoyed reading about methods to eliminate the much hated gophers I deal with at my home on beautiful Padre Island. I have tried several of the products you mentioned and quite a few methods you didn't mention. But I have a couple of questions. I have three chihuahuas that live indoors but use my back yard as their "bathroom" and this is where I'm trying to drive off the gophers. Will coyote urine frighten my dogs, as well as the gophers, so they won't want to go outside? Also, regarding gopher Read more [...]

Hi, I recently made a purchase of trap, coyote urine, peanut stuff.  I have a question on eliminating indoor insects like spiders, pill bugs and those thousand leg things that you squish and there is nothing there. How can you eliminate these insects without a spray can insecticide?  The spray will get on carpets and walls.  Is there another product?  Thanks. For the longest time pretty much anything one wanted to spray inside the home would leave a mess. Traditionally the sprays were Read more [...]

Which do you recommend to kill actively growing fungus in a crawl space in southeast Georgia where the moisture problem is mostly seasonal with heavy rain? The moisture barrier and mechanical issues are going to be dealt with as or after the treatment with bora care. Is the mold care necessary in addition to the boracare? In general, the best way to deal with a problem like this is to first solve the moisture issue. Once the mechanical repair is done, you should monitor the moisture level to make Read more [...]

I have noticed this fast moving little white bug first on the window sills and now they are on our wooden furniture. I have been trying to find out and searched all over google but just can not seem to pin point it. The first time I seen them I was opening the windows on a hot day about lunch time they are really really fast and I'm just not sure if I should be worried? Hope you can help. Thanks. Being worried won't help or hurt the cause but if you want to do something constructive to reduce their Read more [...]

I saw oil type spray on tv that kills roaches and wasps on contact. Tv show Vexcon exterminators used it. Do you sell it? What is it? No doubt we have it. I must have missed this episode so I don't know off the top of my head what product it was but I'm sure we carry it. Here are some of my guesses: Wasp Freeze:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/aerosol/pt-515-wasp-freeze-18-oz Hornet Killer:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/aerosol/bonide-wasp-and-hornet-killer 565:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/aerosol/pt-565-xlo We Read more [...]

Do springtails hibernate? Could they survive a winter in an upper level empty flower box over a winter? It is wooden. Can they reproduce in a box like that? Do sprays not penetrate the soil enough to bring the population down? Springtails don't "hibernate" in their adult stage. Most that adults that confront the harsh reality of winter will die. And since their life span is so short, even if they were alive at the start of winter, chances are they'd be dead by winters end anyway. What does happen Read more [...]

We are going crazy with an infestation of INDOORS midges/gnats in our home. We are open to any idea since we have tried anything else. Perhaps timer/foggers with a non dangerous spray for the rooms? There are a few options that can handle this problem. You could manually use a space spray like AQUACIDE on a daily basis. Treat the rooms where they're active once in the morning and once again at night before you retire. This will knock out the active ones and over time should get rid of them all. A Read more [...]

I live in condo, with a canal in the backyard. Last 5 years I haven't been able to sleep from April to November, this year they came back a week ago and two months earlier.One week without sleeping itching and with big bites on the neck area and shoulders, (even though they are all over me), I just cannot stop moving. First I thought that it were flying ants (black) they are also in my apartment, Truly Nolen came and identified the insects as the NSU and told me that they could not get rid of it. Read more [...]

I have plastic Read more [...]

i've heard putting freshly chewed bubble gum in the vole runs is effective in killing them-i've heard they can't digest it and it kills them. if that's as effective as chemicals i'm ready to chew! any truth there,or do i need a animal biologist? There are a lot of "old wives tales" circulating which involve common pests and "home" remedies. In most cases, there is no scientific research backing the claims and most all have been passed down from generation to generation like any other story. One Read more [...]

Hello, I have a question about the Fly Powder trap before placing an order. I could not find information on your website about how long it will last or how often they need replacing. Can you make a recommendation for me: I only have one window with a cluster fly problem and have never seen more than 8 flies at a time. The window is in 2 parts (a rectangle with a semi circle above it) & they accumulate in both sections. I was thinking of getting a pack of 4 traps & putting out 2 at a Read more [...]

I've purchased liquid ant stations as well as liquid spray (Viper).  They work very well when I am diligent.  Now in the middle of winter we've had ants coming in.  We believe that there is a large nest under the slab of the wing on our house and we're not sure how to get the spray under the slab. We've set bait stations.  I don't like spraying anything in the house.  Do you have any recommendations? The products you listed will work under most conditions. When foraging ants out and about during Read more [...]

I’ve had problems when I go to the beach with gnat bites or “no-seeums’ as they are referred to. I tend to have allergic reactions to the bites so I really need something that will help keep them away while I’m there vacationing. I’ve tried going to my allergist and getting a shot beforehand, but that doesn’t seem to do the trick. I always end up being miserable and then having to come back home and get another shot. How best can I combat these gnats? You seem to have a lot of good Read more [...]

Dear Jonathan, I read through your article about bats and very interested in buying some of the products but not sure which is most effective for our warehouse. Our warehouse is located in Bali, Indonesia. It's used to store furniture. The main problem is at nights bats would come and poo on the furniture. This is not just dangerous but also cost us money as we have to re-do the finishing. As you can see on picture below the construction which is completely open. High ceiling supported by bamboo Read more [...]

Hi, Sorry to trouble you with such a strange one. But my partner had a crazy phobia of frogs, screams shouts flaps cries. The works. I'm near an ancient pond, guessing frogs have been passing this way for many years, on way to and from pond. She thinks they live in our garden, sheds, garages and are planning to take over the house. Do you have any product that may deter them? Thinking deter rather than kill them but kill would do. Ultra sonics? If not, any idea of frequencies I would be looking Read more [...]
