Pest Control Tips

Here are some more pest tips.

German roaches
German roaches are small, light colored roaches that infest kitchens and are very prolific. You can bring them home from a grocery store, so check bags food is put in at the store. If you have these roaches, get some German Roach Pheromone Traps and put them in areas of the kitchen, including in cabinets, on counters and other areas you see them. The traps will attract the catch the roaches. Pesticides aren’t necessary.   Pheromone traps are available online.

Clothes moths and Flour moths:
Both of these moths are common pests. You can also use pheromone traps to catch the male moths and stop the breeding process. Use Cloths Moth Pheromone Traps for clothes moths and Flour Moth Pheromone traps for the moths infesting the kitchen. Wash and clean all wool and cotton fabric to kill the larvae and clean out the pantry and throw away any infested food for flour moths.

Paper wasps;
If you have paper wasps building a nest around the eaves of your house and you need to move them, spray the nest with a high-pressure hose at night when they are all in the nest. They will be knocked down. If you want you can pick them up in jars and relocate them off your property, or dispose of them how you want. Spray the area where the nest was the next morning with- Avon Skin so Soft. That will repel wasps from building another nest in the area. Then get a couple of small brown paper bags, fill them with crumpled paper, tie the top and hang them one where the old nest was and the other close by. Wasps will see the bags and think they are wasp nests and not build another nest near them.

If you have scorpions around your house, put some damp, heavy denim type material in the yard. The scorpions will find these at night and hide under them. Then you can dispose of the denim and any scorpions in them the next day or you can just dispose of the scorpions and put the denim down every night.

There are many other pests as I mentioned in my previous post and I will help anyone at any time manage any pests without using toxic pesticides. If you want, you can join my Bug Club on this website.

About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs. Please enjoy my blog posts, check out my publications, utilize my services, or simply stay in touch if you have a bug question…

  1. Thanks for these tips for pest control. I didn’t know that scorpions will hide under damp, heavy denim materials. I’m kind of interested to learn how large these materials can be, especially if you want to make sure you can dispose of all the scorpions properly.
