Fauquier County VA...was away for a week,,,had sprayed around all doors and windows and in the fireplace, but had not had time to spray the whole house before we left. Came home to lots of dead bugs in the fireplace only. I wonder if we could get away without spraying the siding?
We've had them here in Western Loudoun for a couple of weeks. I sprayed around all doors, windows and roof vents yesterday. This is interesting: I saw several dead sb's on my front porch - from the spraying that we did one year ago!! Seems that Demand CS has some staying power if not in the elements.
Yes, Talstar Pro, too. It is still killing them in areas that do not get weather. This is why I have lightened up on my spraying,,,think we were over spraying in our panic. I am worried about all this use of chemical.
Try putting LOTS of soap and use warm water. I also heard that dawn soap works better.
The first year we sprayed our siding with dawn in one of those hose end sprayers,,,it worked but had to be repeated over and over, so we went to Talstar Pro.
an old credit card works to flip them in the jar easily! and if they are high up, iIuse a lambs wool duster..their legs get caught on it and then I flip them from that to the jar of dawn/water.
