These insects don’t come from thin air. They migrate up out of the ground and initially live on or under your homes siding.
This can happen quickly or for years but eventually they get into living spaces through windows, doors, attics and wall spaces!
They’ll even enter through drain pipes.
Once in the home, it will take surface sprays like BITHOR to control the ones out in the open.
But the real key to ending the problem is using FS MP AEROSOL in all points of entry.
So WINDOWS and doors must be treated aggressively using the methods detailed in this video:
Now on the outside, MAXXTHOR EC is great at killing all you see BUT it won’t get deep under or behind siding like Wood Shakes, Aluminum or Vinyl.
So if you have wood shakes, Vinyl or Aluminum, you’ll need to dust as much as possible paying extra attention to routes of entry like windows and doors.
This short video (less than 60 seconds long) gives you a good idea of what’s involved:
DELTAMETHRIN DUST is best suited for this task since it can handle moisture and still remain active.
Use a CRUSADER HAND DUSTER to apply it.
Try to reach as high as you can; a DUSTICK can help reach an extra 20+ feet and both springtails and clover mites commonly live in soffits, gutters and under roof shingles!
