3. Combat Fly Larvae and Leaf Miners with Cyromazine
October 23, 2013

Cyromazine is a kind of triazine insect growth regulator and a systemic insecticide that is highly effective against leaf miners and fly larvae. It comes under the s-triazine class of chemicals with several herbicidal compounds. The only difference is that unlike any other compounds of the triazine class, it does not have any herbicidal activity. The correct mechanism of action for this drug is still not known.

4. Which Way to Protect Vegetable Garden by Doing Fire Ant Control
October 07, 2013

Fire ants can be a nuisance in the vegetable garden. In addition to being a stinging insect, they can damage some vegetable crops. Besides treating for fire ants in the surrounding lawn, some fire ant baits and products for mound treatments also are labeled for use within the vegetable garden for additional control. A vegetable garden that is frequently tilled may have fewer fire ant mounds because tilling disturbs the fire ants and causes them to move. However, some mounds will persist, such as those that are too close to the individual vegetable plants to adequately be disturbed by... (read more)

5. Why is the ichneumon fly known as the farmer's friend
June 07, 2013

Why is the ichneumon fly known as the farmer's friend? The Ichneumon fly is known as the farmer’s friend because it controls a great many plant pests. Species have even been transported by man to colonize areas where artificial pest controls have not been successful. Ichneumon flies, of which there are thousands of species spread throughout the world, are parasitic-and their larvae feed on caterpillars, pupae and larvae of other insects. Larva (plural, larvae) is the name given to an insect from the time it leaves the egg till it is transformed into the pupa or gru... (read more)

February 07, 2013

The best way to control kitchen insects is to prevent them from entering the kitchen or becoming a problem once in the kitchen.

They are other insects such as the cockroach, larder beetle and carpet beetle, which turn up in the kitchen but they also inhabit other areas of the house. Ever wonder where they come from?

8. Means to Overcome Difficult Situation of Winged or Flying Ant Control
December 17, 2012

It is very common to get confused between flying ants and flying termites. To find out the difference between flying ants and termites, you will have to closely examine the body of the insect. There is a clear differentiation between the body parts, namely; the head, thorax, and abdomen (tail) of an ant. The legs of an ant are attached just behind the head, to the thorax and not to the abdomen. On the other hand, the body of a termite is divided into two parts, namely; the head and the body. The legs of a termite are attached to its body. There is also a difference in their antennae. The anten... (read more)

9. Safe Measure of Insect Control in the Yard
November 25, 2012

In addition to insects, many gardens suffer attacks from animals which can destroy gardens and eat flowers, vegetables, and fruit crops. Organic gardeners recognize that it is usually humans who are infringing on the habitat of wild animals and not the other way around. Using commercial lawn and garden products is not much of a problem if proper precautions are taken, such as wearing gloves and a dust mask when applying them and following package instructions. But for the health or environmentally conscience gardener, using chemical pesticides is simply not an option. The best way ... (read more)

10. Biological Approach to Spider Mites in the Garden
October 01, 2012

Spider mites are common pest problems on many plants around yards and gardens. Damaged areas typically appear marked with many small, light flecks, giving the plant a somewhat speckled appearance. Spider mites frequently kill plants or cause serious stress to them. Considered a serious nuisance outdoors and on houseplants, this pest is tough to see until plant injury occurs. Spider mites congregate on the underside of leaves, sip on plant fluids and remove chlorophyll. Visible signs include webbing and white or yellow speckles on leaves; defoliation occurs in severe cases. To rid you... (read more)

October 01, 2012

Spider mites are common plant pests. They are among the most serious pests on both yard and houseplants.

12. Origin of Bed Bugs Existence
October 01, 2012

Unlike cockroaches and flies that feed on filth, there is often no relationship between bed bugs and cleanliness. It often seems that bed bugs arise from nowhere. Since the bugs feed solely on blood, pristine dwellings can be as vulnerable to infestation as are places of squalor. That said, poverty and privation can lead to increased risk of bed bug problems, as can the inability to hire a professional exterminator. They first get into your home either by unhatched eggs being in some luggage, furniture, bedding or other item brought into your home or in rare cases by live bedbugs cr... (read more)

13. How to Prevent Ticks to Thrive Indoor
October 01, 2012

Ticks should not be taken lightly. Ticks should be eliminated from your home as much as possible. Ticks usually come in with pets that are outdoors. Ticks can be a big problem. Do not think that ticks are nothing to worry about. Deer ticks actually cause Lyme's disease, which will kill animals and you in the long run. Deer ticks are a lot smaller than your average tick and they are common. If you ever find a tick in your home, flush it down the toilet or wash it down the drain in your sink. If you have a lot of long grass around your home, you might want to consider chopping down thi... (read more)

14. Different Approach to Manage Bugs in the Cupboards
September 30, 2012

At some time or another you find insects in flour, cereals, breakfast foods or dry baking ingredients in cupboards or other storage places.

A number of insects, commonly referred to as pantry or kitchen pests, infests dry or stored food products in the home. Most are either beetles or moths. In the case of beetles, both the adult and larval stages may be damaging while only the larvae of moths are destructive. In... (read more)

15. Proper Utilization of Cockroach Bait to be Effective
September 27, 2012

Firstly, to get rid of the Cockroaches you have to understand them a little. The cockroach is one of natures' best survivors! The first thing you should know about these insects is that they are not particularly picky when it comes to the type of food they are willing to eat, which is one thing that makes them so tenacious when they infest a home but also can work well against them when it comes to effective use of baits. Roach baits are formulations that are attractive to roaches and (when eaten by the insect) are lethal to roaches. There are different types of baits that can be used, d... (read more)

September 17, 2012

Sticky glue traps cause an enormous amount of suffering and a traumatic death for the animals they catch. Consumers spend millions of dollars each year on mousetraps, poisons, and exterminators in an effort to "control" rodent populations. Glue traps are one of the cruelest methods of killing animals that exists today. These devices consist of pieces of cardboard, fiberboard, or plastic coated with a sticky adhesive designed to capture any small animal who wanders across its surface. Trapped rodents and other animals suffer immeasurably during the days that it takes for them to die. ... (read more)

September 17, 2012

There are still a number of Bed bug treatments that can help eradicate Bed bugs. One cost effective treatment method is by using Bed bug sprays that are very useful when it comes to controlling and eliminating Bed bugs.

19. Fabric Common Pest and Control Needed
September 12, 2012

The group of insects known as fabric pests includes silverfish, clothes moths and carpet beetles. Except for silverfish, the main food sought by fabric pests is a protein substance called Keratin present in fibers of animal origin such as wool, and even human hair. Clothes moths are usually blamed for insect damage on fabrics, but other insect pests, most notably carpet beetles, are also able to cause serious damage. The immature stages (larvae) of both the clothes moth and carpet beetle feed on a variety of animal-based material, including wool, fur, silk, feathers and leather. Item... (read more)

20. Biting Mites and Its Prevention
September 12, 2012

Mites are tiny arthropods, related to ticks. Several types of mites can be found in homes and of these a few may bite humans. Only a few mite species are parasitic on birds or mammals, but these can occasionally become biting pests in homes. Although many different types of mites can infest a home, not all species bite. Most biting mites are not actually parasitic to humans; although they may attach briefly and bite, they usually are transmitted from other animals. Some mites, including scabies and chiggers, do live off of humans, however. In the case of scabies, prescription medication i... (read more)

21. Is There Such Thing as Waterbug Cockroach?
September 09, 2012

The waterbug cockroach is often called the oriental cockroach, and like other species of roaches, this typically is not an insect that you want in your home. Water bug' seems to be a fitting name for insects that hide out in damp parts of a home and in sewers—essentially places of high moisture. Typical hideouts might be in or around drains, washing machines, sewage lines, and crawl spaces. They may also find a hiding place beneath refrigerators. The waterbug cockroach feeds off of decaying or rotting garbage as well as rotting plant and animal substances. Because this roach feeds o... (read more)

22. Insects That Thrive at Basements and Its Control
September 09, 2012

A good idea is to first do a thorough assessment of your basement to learn which insects are inhabiting the area and how you can keep your basement clutter free. In many cases, spiders, centipedes, and other creepy crawlies like to hide in dark corners and behind boxes, cartons, and other bulky items. If you have bugs in the basement, you'll want to keep floors as clean as possible. This is especially true if your basement is carpeted. Give the area a thorough carpet cleaning regularly. Use steam and a commercial carpet shampoo. Vacuum the area after steam cleaning. If you have area rugs ... (read more)

23. Warehouse Pest Like Beetles and How to Get Over It
September 08, 2012

Warehouse beetle is an accurate name for the insect. These pests are often found in warehouses that store food. Their love of food dictates their travels, which usually involves flying into warehouses to obtain it. Warehouse beetles aren't known for dwelling in warehouses—just going in to obtain food. They have been found in homes and museums and are usually hiding out in dried grains and dried foods. They actually find home in grain products like seeds, candy, dried fruits, pet foods, nuts, and cereals. Warehouse beetles apparently eat everything in sight, or what is in their natura...

24. Pests That Attack Your Flour Base Food and Other Stored Items
September 08, 2012

Several dozen insect species infest food and non-food products of plant and animal origin commonly found in homes. Collectively, this group of insects is referred to as stored product pests. Most are small beetles or moths. If food is not limited, populations of stored product pests can multiply rapidly and become widespread and sustained In some species of stored product pests, only the larval stages consume food. In these cases, the sole purpose of the adult insect is to mate, discover a food resource, and deposit their eggs—all within the few days or weeks they remain alive. Insec... (read more)

25. Protect Your Carpet and Clothes Against Moth and Beetle
August 30, 2012

Clothes moth and carpet beetle larvae feed in quiet, dark areas-closets, attics, bureau drawers, storage trunks or boxes. Items that are stored for long periods are especially at risk. To prevent infestation by clothes moths and carpet beetles, practice good housekeeping. If carpets and rugs are vacuumed frequently and thoroughly, eggs and larvae will be removed before damage can occur. Vacuum upholstered furniture carefully. If you have pets, pay special attention to removing animal hair-it is a food source for moth and beetle larvae. Such pests seldom infest items used on a regular... (read more)
