All Creatures Great and Small

Pest Management Consulting

The weather in the US is bringing out a lot of bugs and that is probably happening in a lot of places around the world.  I will help anyone that has any pest problems online and there is no charge. I will never recommend using toxic pesticides and very rarely recommend a pest control company. Most people can do their own pest control if they want.  Why use pesticides when you can control pests below with non-toxic methods.

Cockroaches (beer and duct tape)
Ants (peanut butter and jelly, grits, Coca Cola)
Earwigs (newspaper)
Silverfish (baby food jars and flour)
Paper wasps (brown paper bags, Avon Skin so Soft)
Bed bugs (alcohol, water & dish soap, hair dryer)
Head lice (salt water, hair dryer)
Fungus gnats (aquarium gravel)
Fruit flies (vinegar)
Carpet beetles (dirty socks and cheese)
Subterranean termites (Tetracycline)
Spiders (peppermint essential oil)
Almost all pests (soap, water and dish soap).

If you have any pest questions you can email me at  I check email frequently and a lot more often than this website or social media.  I will help anyone, anywhere in the world to the best of my ability and I have 45 years of experience in the pest control industry.


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…
