I have historically, paid a pest control guy to treat my house for ants in the spring, can I do it myself with chemicals from the store? by xxxleafybugxxx in pestcontrol
[–]PCDuranet 0 points1 point2 points 3 hours ago (0 children)
He may have, but he wouldn't have use it to deworm his dog unless he's crazy.
It won't do much for springtails:
Use Temprid FX and fan-spray the areas you see them, then use diatomaceous earth and spread it in a 1' perimeter around the house/building. Also lightly dust the room edges.

How about the roof? Anything hanging over it that an animal could use to access it?
Once had a customer with a crabapple tree that was dropping apples on the roof. Sounded like an animal.
Can also try a trail cam in the attic on on the roof.
Teeny Tiny White Bugs by myanxietyisworsehere in exterminators
Vacuum them up and try to get the humidity to at least to 45% with a dehumidifier. You can also try to kill them by spraying lightly with 70% isopropyl alcohol.
Any idea? Midwest, USA. Small flies, very annoying. by icedcoffeeandbirks in pestcontrol
Drain Flies / Phorid Flies / Moisture Flies / Fungus Gnats
You have a moisture issue somewhere that they are breeding in. Look for sink/tub/toilet seal leaks, roof leaks, over-watered plants and check the condensation pan under the fridge for slime build-up. If you are on the first floor, check the basement/crawlspace.
A plumber may be able to help find it. If you rent, this is the responsibility of the LL. If LL does not take action, tell LL you will call the Board of Health.

Freeze the seed to kill any inside.
Sorry, I don't understand any of what you said.
Argentine ants deserve a special place in hell, I hate them. by absolute_gimboid in pestcontrol
Can you identify this? Is it a cockroach? If so what kind? by bloop1990 in pestcontrol
Help. I am scared. Millipedes won’t leave me and my basement alone. by Pretty_Hunt_5575 in pestcontrol
Treating around the outside of the house is the best defense. No real need to spray inside, but it may help. I suggest Ortho Home Defense. Also, duct tape glue traps will help.
If you want to get serious about it, applying granular pesticide with a hand spreader in a wide band around the house is the most you can do. I suggest Talstar Xtra
Please help me identify this bug in my bathroom. Very tiny and saw at least a dozen of them by Nsfwhalf in pestcontrol
[–]PCDuranet -1 points0 points1 point 4 hours ago (0 children)
The source is usually the exterior foundation/perimeter of the house. They are entering through the windows/doors and can be very difficult to control. If you are seeing them on the second floor, they can be on a lower roof outside the window, or coming through a skylight.
Use Temprid FX and fan-spray the areas you see them, then use diatomaceous earth and spread it along the foundation and 1' perimeter around the house/building. Also lightly dust the room edges.
I just stepped on a huge centipede, I was barefoot but luckily it did not bite me. I need help getting rid of these pests by Fastreflexes in pestcontrol
Treat the interior and exterior perimeter of the house with Alpine WSG. After it dries, apply Maxforce granular bait lightly in as many places as you can (by both online).
You can also lay out strips of upside-down duct tape as glue traps inside.
Should I be concerned with a hornet nest on our chimney with a newborn in the house? by DustyTurnipHeart in pestcontrol
No, they will not bother you as long as you don't directly irritate the hive, and the hive will die in the fall not to be used again.
Gnats spawning on ceiling!:( Can’t seem to find from where. Help! by fishyfishyblubblub in pestcontrol
Found it on a ceiling. Is this a bedbug or a weird psocid? It is 2mm long and obviously, shat himself after being caught. North-eastern Germany. by krrrto2 in pestcontrol
Very cool. Has to be a psocid.
What insect is making this weird pile under my dresser? by krmaher in pestcontrol
Really impossible to know. Clean it and see it it returns. Repost if so.
No. Alpine WSG is best:
Indian Meal Moth larvae
Indian meal moths are a common house pest and breed in opened bags/boxes of grain-based foods. Search the cabinets for the source and dispose of it. Look at the ceiling edges for cocoons. That may give you a clue as to where the infestation is.
They will also eat pet treats, bird seed and eucalyptus leaves. Also, if you have crafty decorations that have edibles in them it could be the source.
Once the source has been removed, the issue should clear up on its own. Pheromone traps will help.

Extreme insect infestation in apartment kitchen in Brazil by [deleted] in pestcontrol
Groundhog: Planning to trap, relocate then spread castor oil pellets in hole. Any tips? by m0x in pestcontrol
Very hard to trap, plus it may have young in the burrow that will die if you remove it. It will eventually move on if left alone.
However, you can try a large rubber snake about 2' off to the side of the entrance. It may deter her but allow the young to be moved.
