Mr. Pest Control
The scenario is an outdoor Jamaican restaurant on resort grounds near a beach. The flies are moderate until fish is served. Ambiance is a huge factor to management who wants a real Caribbean experience for customers. Fly sticks and fly bags are not an option because they are ugly and must be changed too often. The management only allows an insect light trap in the small indoor food prep area and permethrin applications to surrounding foliage. They will not allow fly baits because they are concerned the flies will spread pesticides to customer’s food. Do you have any suggestions for air circulation when the wind is calm or systems that emit products into the air to deter flies?
Spiders have attached themselves to the exterior of a newly constructed 18 story office building. The building is on a lakefront with a nearby river. The building is LEED Silver. The exterior facade is granite, steel, and glass with lots of edges, corners, gaps and voids. The spiders are feeding on the insects that are attracted to the lights that are on the exterior and the lights that are left on all night on the inside of the building that shine through the window glass. Recently we used a “webster” type brush and knocked down spiders up to a height of 18 feet around the building. Within a week there were just as many spiders on the building. Do you have any suggestions for a pesticide treatment on the exterior that will comply with the LEED requirements? Or, do we continue brushing?
