Oh goodness, why would you want that toxic shit in your home anyway? The chemicals, not the he/she.

I live in Florida, you have to have pest control here. They just spray around the outside of the house. I know it's a compromise, but I don't want bugs in my house.

other than termites, you can keep em at bay yourself with a spectracide spray on the hose about once every 6 weeks. I just hose the perimeter, maybe up to 1 foot on the house. Doesnt stain, wear gloves and wash your hands when done. We used to have palmetto bugs every now and then and with parrots constantly leaving crumbs on the floor, I never get ants either. stuff works great on the lawn too. Dont pay these woke companies for things you can do easily yourself.

If the ghost ants get in your house use this https://www.domyown.com/optigard-ant-gel-bait-p-424.html

I worked 4 years as pest control and wildlife trapper in Collier County before going into Aviation.

Thanks, I'll try it out, currently I've used the Terro liquid ant baits which seem to work pretty well if they actually take it.

Yea check out that site. They provide tons of info on every type of critter. Plus they show YouTube videos on how to apply sprays and granules. I used it to buy bait boxes for rats and bait blocks. No need to pay anyone for that kind of service.

Here's the problem. Most ants have feeding phases. They are either feeding for 'current energy needs' or the feed for 'future energy needs'. That unfortunately affects what traps attract them.

A trap that works now, may not work in 2-3 months. And one that doesn't work now, may work in 2-3 months.

If you can find the nests... use Boric acid dust on the nest, if it's in a non-ornamental part of your land. Diatomaceous earth for inside and on ornamental grounds.

Terro baits are lethal to sugar ants. Get a ant invasion, just put a couple out and they'll drink it dry and be gone for a long long while.

Ortho ant killer works well. Smells like rotten eggs but it conquers the ants if you keep applying it to any new ant hills you find.

I also used their home defense spray on the inside and outside perimeters. Worked just as well as anything terminex uses.

Many people would pay not to handle chemicals like that. I've sprayed quite a bit of homes for family and in hindsight I really regret doing it without a lot more protection and care.

For subterranean termites you can get your own bait stations and check them monthly or quarterly. If one goes hot, order termador a replace bait with it. Do your own and save thousands.

Different story if you get dry wood in your house.

You should only need to treat every 2 to 3 months with a good quality professional insecticide That is microencapsulated

Rather the bugs. They aren't going to give you and your pets heavy metal poisoning. Mulch around your home with cedar mulch and plant pest deterring plants. Peppermint, lemon balm, basil, marigold lavender, thyme, so many more.

Bax101 7 points ago +7 / -0

Florida's rain season will wipe that crap out. You need suspended grainals spread every 3 months. Spraying is useless unless its indoors. Which depending on which company will follow the proper instructions for use. That is a huge difference. It's very unregulated. The dept of Agriculture already knows it too.

The chemicals used will cause cancer for sure with long term exposure. The Wildlife Commission and EPA do monthly audits of pest companies to make sure you store those chemicals properly. I was once sprayed without protection and got serious chemical poisoning after the truck was over pressurized and blew hose out. I had to do a heavy metal detox for 2 months.

I may not be the first to say: there are only 2 sexes, Gender is a term by the pedo John Money.

Deplora 5 points ago +5 / -0

Thank you! I've been harping on this for years! Gender is a grammatical term. It has no place in describing humans or animals.

Gender is a grammatical term.

No. Gender is nothing. It's false, fabricated.
We must encourage each other to totally stop using the word.

5
Deplora 5 points ago +5 / -0

Nope. I will not allow the crazed leftist activists to force any changes in my language. Gender is a grammatical term. The English language has 3 genders, masculine, feminine, and neuter. Many languages have only two, and assign a gender to each noun in the language, including the nouns that describe many inanimate objects. In French, the gender of the word for "house" is feminine. That does not mean that French houses are of the female sex. It is correct to for a student to ask a French teacher what the gender of the word for house is. It would be absurd to ask what sex the word is.

1
Lelleck 1 point ago +1 / -0

That applies to German as well.

The article Die refers to woman, so it is ‘Die, Bart, Die‘.

IamBACK 1 point ago +1 / -0

Gender is a grammatical term.

No. Gender is a not a term at all.

The English language has 3 genders, masculine, feminine, and neuter.

No; biology recognizes 2 sexes. Anything apart from that is a biological anomaly/disorder/deformity (eg. intersex).

Whether it is gelded/castrated or not (removal of testes or ovaries) does not affect whether we call it a boy or a girl.,, or man or woman in the case of the castrato / castrotti opera singers of Italy who were castrated before their voices changed to maintain high timber and control. A fucking barbaric practice. Alessandro Moreschi (1858-1922) was the last. I can't even listen to it; it's unGodly. I feel so bad for the guy.

1
Deplora 1 point ago +1 / -0

Gender most certainly is a real grammatical term. It just doesn't mean what the transcrazies and pseudo"gender" activists want to convince everybody it means.

Your insistence that there is no such term as "gender" is very nearly as crazy as the transcrazies' insistence that people can have a whole bunch of different "genders" and can change "genders" any time they feel the urge.

I'm not gonna pretend to be an expert in pest control, or the swamp. But couldn't you do that yourself? It's just chemicals and you just need to make sure you don't breathe that shit in.

Last time I dealt with pest control was a few years ago, guy who showed up looked like that nerd from Ghost busters, poor kid didn't even wear a mask, probably dead now. And for what, a tiny hornets nest that could have been exterminated with some nerve gas.

2
True_Curmudgeon 2 points ago +2 / -0

Just be a man and grab that hornets nest and crush it in your fist pussy, or better yet sneak up on it at night and capture the whole thing in a bag and then release it on a crowd of antifa as a crowd control device!

I was gonna deal with it tho, but that Ghostbusters guy showed up first. Probably some libtard noticing the nest and panicked. 🤡

CharlieMike 1 point ago +1 / -0

One of my neighbors gets liquid termador and trenches around the foundation of his house and just pours a certain amount around. He’s a microbiologist if that means anything and claims it’s good for several years. I have a well so don’t feel that confident on the potential for ground water contamination.

The pesticide they use is probably called Psy-kick and it’s available for anyone to purchase themselves.

For segmented insects like ants and cockroaches and all other insects because they are all by definition segmented, I use diatomaceous earth. It is otherwise non toxic.

Dogs can eat it. Kids can eat it. YOU can eat it.

But it kills segmented animals. It used to be an old-timey cure for tapeworms in dogs: 5% of their food, by weight, until the tapeworm passes.

My kids have a lot of fun spreading it all over the yard. They use a flour thingy cooking implement with the handle on the side that stirs the product as it passes through the screen at the bottom.

Fuck all that organic noise, just get a bottle of talstar pro, mix at triple the rate in a cheap home Depot sprayer, and do what the pro's do.

You'll shit your pants once you realize how cheap talstar concentrate is, (45 ish a gallon that you need 1-3 ounces of per gallon of mix), and that's AFTER it tripled in price over the last 18 months. It was 15 a gallon.

One gallon by the way will allow you to do perimeter pest controls (3-5 feet up and 3-5 feet out) around your house every month for a few years. Compare that to your terminex bill.
