Saw the first one on the outside of a window today,,,,dead on the deck soon after landing there due to Talstar, I guess,,,we are in Fauquier County VA and this is the week we usually see the swarm.
We are still using Demand CS with great results. I'm not seeing any yet, but this is the week they have been swarming for the past few years.
After we sprayed, we had a major rain event (six + inches over a few days), here in SCentral PA. I will observe the beasties when they swarm, and if they are not dying after landing on the house, we will have to spray again.
I saw the first one outside the garage door yesterday. I'm another one who sprays Demand CS outside the house top to bottom. A little extra attention around doors, windows, and edges of siding. I've been successfully using this approach for several years since finding this forum.
Burlington County, New Jersey area.
Loudoun County, VA - they're baaaaack! Over the last couple of weeks I've seen a lone SB here and there. We recently had cool weather and now that it's warming back up they're out in force. This is around the same time as last years swarm. I've already sprayed Demand CS and hopefully it'll work once again.
Was watching for the swarm here in Sicklerville South Jersey. Wasn't going to bother securing the double screens that have to be done every Sept or spraying my Talstar Pro but now that I've seen my 5th one this week I sprayed heavily today both up for the stinkers & down for my resident ants. Almost out of Talstar tho, time to buy some more next year.
I have about 6 spider webs near where s.b.'s hang out. I used to brush them down until I saw a sb stuck in one. Saw one stuck there today & will leave the webs up until sb season is over. Funny that this is the time I see them the most. Goody for spiders as long as they're not Brown Recluse, I think they just hide in dark places & don't spin a web, not sure tho.
Still waiting for the SB swarm in Frederick MD. In the best last would have been it, this year is different. I only have 1 or 2 on the windows. I did spray the house in early September. Also we didn't see the baby SB that we have in the past. We were wondering if because we had all our bushes sprayed a couple of times with Talstar if that was the trick. puzzling!!!
