    Q
    Which fogger to use for killing bugs in storage unit?
    We are moving and want to bomb before I bring things out of storage in my new home.
    A
    We would recommend using Pro Control Plus Total Release. This does leave a residual of up to 8 weeks and should not be placed in common living areas and/or near kitchen or food handling areas. Pro Control is meant to be used in a storage facility. You should not return for two hours after the can has been pressed and the fog has had time to settle. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    Will the Pro Control Plus Total Release fogger kill black widows and their eggs in my garage? We have a lot of black widows!
    A
    Pro Control Plus Total Release fogger will kill just about any insect that is out and exposed at the time of treatment. You should note that the fogger will not penetrate cracks, crevices or other areas that are hidden. Foggers go straight up into the air, float around for a short period of time and then settle onto surfaces. This means that any spiders that are hidden in cracks, crevices, storage boxes, etc will not be exposed to the fogger. You can use the fogger to get rid of any exposed insects and then follow up with a crack and crevice treatment such as Cy-Kick Aerosol. Also, spider eggs will most likely not be killed by any insecticide. The only surefire way to kill the eggs is to crush them or burn them.

    Q
    What is the best pesticide to control camel or cave crickets?
    I am using strips of duct tape now and catch a few a day over the last several months but they don't stop. I have them in my basement and den and I do see them around the outside of the house.
    A
    One of our most popular products for camel and crave crickets is our Niban Fine Granular Bait. It can be used indoors in the basement but it should be used around the outside of your home to help kill the crickets before they try to get into the house.  The Niban FG Bait is a food source that they are attracted to and eat.

    Q
    Will Pro Control Plus Total Release kill bedbugs?
    I have been spraying using powder for 9 monthes now to get read of bed bugs will this help. If not do you have anything else
    A
    We do not recommend any type of fogger or bomb for bedbug control. Pro Control Plus Total Release fogger is made to kill exposed insects. In most instances bedbugs keep themselves concealed in hidden places to avoid detection and they will not come into contact with fogged insecticides. We recommend that you take a look at our Bedbug Kits. These kits come with all of the products that we recommend to eliminate bedbugs plus they come with step by step instructions that will help you treat more effectively. You must follow each step of the instructions, and you must be very thorough (treat every cracks, crevice, void, tuft or fold) and consistently do the retreatments every 7-10 days to get eliminate this pest.

    Q
    Can you suggest a bomb for thrips to use in my home and truck?
    I used Talstar P to try and get rid of the thrips but it doesn't seen to be working. I'm also using a professional lawn service to treat the yard. They are using Talstar P also. This has gone on for two months now and my house and truck are infested completely. Please help me with my problem.
    A
    There are not any foggers or bombs that are labeled for thrips. Of course this doesn't mean that the fogger will not kill thrips, only that the manufacturer hasn't intended it for this type of use or that they haven't tested the product for this pest. There are no foggers that you can use in your vehicle as the space is much too small to accommodate the foggers requirements. We do carry a fogger that you could use in your home, Pro Control Plus Total Release which contains two active ingredients 0.50% Pyrethrins for a fast knockdown, 0.10% Cyfluthrin for a long lasting residual. Also, Talstar P will take time to kill thrips and you should allow several weeks to see the complete results. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office to request an insect identification if you have not done so already. Failure to properly identify an insect can lead to a pest control program failure as different insects require different treatments.

    Q
    I need something to kill wasps/hornets entering my home in the fall.
    For the second year in a row, we have wasps/hornets entering the family room to get out of the cold. Our pest control company cannot find the source and we even changed companies this year. We have a small crawl space attic and have closed off the recessed lighting. We have a fireplace with a top flue that closes shut and a small crawl space under the family room. Should I try to use a fogger or something else? My wife and children are allergic to bees, so it is critical that I get rid of them.
    A
    You could use a bug bomb or fogger in the attic space if you have an attic space.  If they are in your home then this usually means that they are coming in and out from somewhere around your home.  They have to get out somehow to get food.  Your only option is to find this place where they fly in and out.  Once you find their entry/exit point then you can treat that area directly with a dust and take care of the problem.

    Q
    Would Pro-Control Total Release Aerosol Insecticide prevent wasp nests if sprayed under my house eaves?
    Last year we had a terrible wasp problem and I'd like to prevent it from the start this year if possible. Knock down all last year's nests and treat before it warms up. What would you recommend?
    A

    Pro-Control Total Release Aerosol will kill wasps on contact and provide a residual for up to eight weeks. We would recommend using a concentrate, such as Cyonara 9.7 outdoors around the eaves of your home for a residual instead of using a fogging product. This can be applied every 30 days as needed.

    Q
    Is the Pro Control Plus safe to use in my home attic?
    I am concerned about smell or chemicals coming down from the attic into the bedrooms of my hole.
    A
    You can use Pro Control Plus in the attic as long as it is larger than 5' x 5' but it is possible that some of the product could get into areas down below through vents or cracks in the ceiling. Since Pro Control Plus is labeled to be used in homes in the main living space this really shouldn't  be a problem. Plan on leaving your home for at least 2 hours after activating the fogger. Ventilate enclosed areas before returning. Foggers do have a bit of a smell but in most cases the smell dissipates after a couple of hours.

    Q
    Would this product be a good product for killing yellow jackets?
    The nest appears to be behind the brick wall. They are entering between the brick and the brick mold.I was thinking about cutting a hole in the brick molding big enough to fit this fogger in and try to fog them out. Will this work? I have sprayed wasp spray, etc. and that was not good.
    A
    No, typically Pro Control Plus Total Release Aerosol is not a good product for bees. Dusting is the best option if you know where the bees/wasps are entering and exiting the nest.  Our most popular dust  for bees/wasp is Tempo Dust.  You will need a hand duster to apply it with.  It usually works within 24 to 48 hours. You want to go up to the opening where they are flying in and out of at dusk or at night when they are not active and puff twice directly into the hole.  Then pull the duster out and puff directly at the hole to cover the opening from about 5 inches away.  This is the most efficient and fastest way to eliminate a bee/yellow jacket/wasp nest. 

    If you want to give tempo dust a try or read about it further here is a link:  http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/tempo-dust-p-391.html

    The hand duster to apply the Tempo Dust is also on the page linked above.

    Q
    Will Pro Control Plus Total Release kill bird mites?
    A
    Pro Control Plus Total Release is not labeled for the treatment of bird mites. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites.  If you do indeed have bird mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good. Please review our article on How To Control Bird Mites.
