Introduction to Fire Ant Baits

Introduction to Fire Ant Baits


fire ant bait has three ingredients the
insect control chemical called the active ingredient is dissolved in a
substance that attracts the ants such as soybean oil the attractant is absorbed
onto some kind of carrier often corn-based allowing the bait to be
easily spread fire ant workers quickly pick up the bait moving the active
ingredient into the fire ant colony and away from other organisms fire ant baits
are considered to be very safe for the environment because they contain such a
tiny amount of active ingredient the ants extract the toxicant-laden oil and
feed it to other members of the colony because the active ingredient is usually
slow acting there is ample time for the material to be fed to the Queen baits
are the most effective method to keep the Queen the heart of the colony from
reproducing when baits are broadcast applied they effectively treat mounds not
large enough to be seen the way a fire ant bait works depends on the active
ingredient in the bait each fire ant bait act somewhat differently so read the
label to determine the right way to apply each product and to determine how
much to use some baits contain an insecticide that kills all ants that
ingest a sufficient dose including the workers and the Queen you will see
results from these baits in a few days to a few weeks depending upon the active
ingredient that is used insecticide based baits usually provides several
months of control baits with an insect growth regulator or similar compound
reduce the production of viable eggs they do not kill the Queen or the adult
workers so colonies decline more slowly the slow decline of existing colonies
prevents new colonies from developing for up to a year after application
results from broadcast applications in late spring or early summer can be seen
in six to twelve weeks insect growth regulators usually provide
six to 12 months of control depending on how soon new fire ant queens re-invade the area the two types of baits can be mixed together at half rates to provide faster
control than what an insect growth regulator can provide yet longer-lasting
control than occurs with an insecticide based bait bait mixes are now
commercially available

How to use Alpine Yellow Jacket Wasp Bait Stations

How to use Alpine Yellow Jacket Wasp Bait Stations


An easy way to kill Yellow Jacket Wasps around
your home or business is by using a bait station. This is a great method to use the nest can’t
be located for a direct drench treatment. We first recommend testing a few types of
bait before using the stations. Recommended food baits include raw chicken pieces, raw
fish, canned tuna, or cat food. Raw chicken pieces or tuna tend to work the best. Also
test using a sweet bait like jelly. Whatever bait the wasps go for, this will be the bait
to use in your stations. The second step is mixing the bait you have
chosen with an insecticide labeled for Yellow Jacket Wasps. You only need a small amount
insecticide for the bait to be effective. Mix a quarter teaspoon of insecticide per
12 ounces of bait thoroughly in the station. The third step is to hang the stations outside
your home five to six feet off the ground. Space the stations about 50 feet apart to
cover as much of your property as possible. Keep the stations out of reach of children,
but in areas where the wasps can access them. A good place to hang the stations are on tree
limbs. The fourth and final step is to check the
bait stations every few days to see if the bait has been consumed or if the the bait
is rancid. Replace the bait as needed until the yellow jacket population is under control. And it’s that easy with the expert help

How to Kill Cockroaches with Advion Cockroach Bait Stations

How to Kill Cockroaches with Advion Cockroach Bait Stations


Hi, I�m Lynn Hitt, President of ePestSolutions.
This morning, I�d like to talk to you about the product Advion Roach Bait station. It
comes in preloaded plastic containers so there�s no dosing on your part. You just simply put
the roach station out where the roaches are present. It�s a slow-acting indoxacarb as
the active ingredient by Syngenta with a very attractive bait matrix.
A lot of the times in roach control programs, overtime, some of the older baits that have
been on there, the roaches get averse to the station. They get tired of eating the same
meals over and over. The new by-product has a newly bait matrix that�s very attractive
to all roaches so if you�re having trouble maybe use another bait, I would recommend
that you try the Advion roach bait. It�s very effective. It�s used by professionals
across the country today. For these and other tips to control your roaches,
call us at 888-523-7378 or visit our website ePestSolutions.com.

The BEST Yellow Jacket Wasp Trap and Best Bait to Use in Fall Trap Wasps or Hornets, NOT BEES

The BEST Yellow Jacket Wasp Trap and Best Bait to Use in Fall Trap Wasps or Hornets, NOT BEES


okay so today I’m gonna show you
something that I think may be interesting to you this time of year
it’s October 4th and we have wasps going everywhere and they’re in high
competition for the last resources of the summer and autumn so you may be
thinking about trapping them and diverting them from your honeybees
because if you’ll notice in this trap and I’ll leave a link to this trap that
I’ve chosen in the description of the video but in this trap we don’t just
have nectar although there is apple juice in the bottom there is a strip of
bacon hanging down the middle now one thing you’ll notice you don’t see in
this trap and that’s honey bees honey bees don’t care about animal protein all
of their protein comes from pollen from plants so in this trap and this is a
trap design that I’ve been using for several years kinda has its drawbacks
but in my opinion it’s the best trap that’s out there and has worked the best
for me you can wash it out sometimes that seemed it’s in two pieces and it’s
been glued together that seam may leak a little but this one is not leaking yet
but anyway let’s get on with that how the lure works I don’t buy the prepared
lures that the trap companies are selling we just put apple juice in here
and then that strip a bacon satisfies their need for protein so when these
wasps fly by and smell that bacon they go right in there so it’s a dual purpose
trap because that also those that are out seeking nectar will respond to that
apple juice and they’ll come into the trap also I also recommend that you kind
of leave some fluid in the bottom so that you can drown the wasps if you need
to notice that there’s a string going through the top and that was my wife’s
idea she hung that bacon out there and she’s the one that heated it up in the
microwave for like 10 seconds or something just to get the aroma of that
meat in the air but I don’t think that’s necessary because they are very
sensitive and they’re all flying in from downwind so they’re definitely finding
it that way and it’s designed to suspend from an overhang or from a tree or
something near your house you want to keep it away from where people are
because you will be attracting wasps so notice that they’re coming in they’re
going after the bacon I get these you’re conical-shaped entry points that are
four on the bottom and just two on top and we strap this to a it’s the top of a
suet feeder in my backyard but I strap it down instead of hanging it somewhere
because I don’t like them swinging all over the place now you may notice that
I’m holding a pipette here and I’m putting little drips next to it and
there’s a little wasp on the pipette after what I’m dripping there and that
is just the standard 50/50 sugar water that we may often feed to bees if
they’re not producing enough on their own or if they need something during a
dearth period and the wasps are no different they go after that same 50/50
sugar water so why would I feed them I mean if I’m trying to trap them why
would I put out sugar water outside the trap well because these wasps are social
insects and if we’re just trapping them they’re gonna fly in be attracted to the
apple juice or the bacon if they need the protein and they’ll go in the trap
and that’s it they’re there the rest of the wasps back in their nest have no
clue where that wasp went and why it didn’t return so what I do is I add
drips of sugar water provide feed outside let these wasps fill up on it
then they’ll fly back to their nest and communicate to the others that there’s a
resource of nectar which is their carbohydrate and other members of that
nest will come out and they’ll also be attracted to this location then
ultimately I just allow the supplemental feeding to dry up and what’s left at the
location the trap so then they’ll all go in so we want to make sure that some
feed and get away so they can come back and bring others so this is the trap and
this is them drinking sugar water and there’s almost nothing else really to
talk about other than what is a wasp do with the protein that it gets so often
some of the larger wasps especially will kill our honeybees
and they’ll take the thorax from that honeybee and they’ll bundle it up and
make a little protein pellet they take it back to their nest they feed it to
the developing larvae and in return the larvae loses out a carbohydrate nectar
type fluid that the workers also eat so there’s a reward system this encourages
the loss to go out kill small animals tear off bits of protein and fly it back
home and feed the larvae the larvae that are developing this time of year when
they are capped up ultimately will likely become Queens and those are the
ones that will seek hiding places through winter and in the spring each of
those Queens will be starting its own nest so it’s kind of important to go
ahead and knock these out of the ballpark this time of year because the
impact on that colony and how many colonies you’ll have next year is much
more potent so that’s about all I have to say again I’m going to put a link to
this wasp trap in the description of the video and I’m just gonna let you watch
these things drink sugar water and let you marvel at the design of these wasps
thank you for watching as always and I hope you subscribed in an upcoming video
I will be comparing the industrial pheromone lures for these wasp traps and
we’ll just see if they’re better than this I don’t think they are but we’ll
see if they’re better than this and also a comparison of the two top rated ones
thanks for watching

Draw my project iGEM Poitiers – To Bee… Hornet to Bee

Draw my project iGEM Poitiers – To Bee… Hornet to Bee


Hi everyone, the iGEM Poitiers team is proud
to present its project: To Bee Hornet to Bee, let’s dive into it! Did you know that bees
were declared as an endangered species since october 2018? These little bugs were for long threatened by some parasites, pesticides and insecticides. Until now, they got through all of these. But not long ago, a new threat has appeared:
the Yellow legged Asian Hornet. This invasive species comes from the south-east
of China and accidentally arrived in France in 2004 aboard of a ship during a chinese
pottery importation. Our climatic conditions being ideal for the
Asian Hornet, it was able to proliferate on our territory. It spread all over the country
in few years, and is now reaching adjacent countries. The issue with this insect is its impact on bees’ population. Indeed, with ⅔ of its
diet based on bees and its hunting technique, it turns this insect into a devastating predator
for bees. Even worse! The very presence of hornets in
front of hives intimidates bees, which don’t dare to go out of their hives anymore. The
colonies end starving to death by lack of food. But bees are in charge of 80% of the pollination of the plants of the territory, including
edible ones. Hence, bees’ decline weakens the food security of all the population. Pollination could always be done by humans, but it would have a huge economic impact. But how to fight against this phenomenon and re-establish the balance? The first fighting method that is used is to spot and destroy hornet nests between spring and summer. The issue is that these nests
are hard to detect because they are built high in trees and they are also hidden behind
leaves. So visual detection is difficult because of
the leaves. An alternative has been suggested, a thermal detection. But the leaves still
limits the efficiency of this method. The nests’ spotting by GPS radar beacon following-up
when attached to a hornet is also difficult, due to the fact that hornets can move 20km
away from their nest. But the range of our sensors is way much lower. Thus it makes the nests’ detection very hard. Another fighting method consists in limiting the pressure impact of hornets on the hives. Some beekeepers have designed hive protection devices or methods. They let a dense vegetation
grow in front of the hive entrance, or they set a grid at the entrance. Some beekeepers go even further, placing their hives in a grid cage. However, these methods are restrictive for beekeepers, who still have to watch for their
hives to eliminate the prowling hornets. It is also restrictive for the bees, which are only protected in their hives. The final fighting method consists in trapping the hornet. There are different kind of traps, like bottle traps, handmade or industrially-made traps. Some traps, like the “Red Trap” use components and specific dimensions to only let enter insects less or as big as the asian hornet, and let out insects less big than the asian hornet. This selectivity criteria allows to limit the trapping of other insect species than the asian hornet. But it is not certain. And because every bait are alimentary, it lures equally hornets and other insect species which can be trapped anyway. The issue is that the trapping of these insects lead to a reduction of their population. But these species are important in the balance of our ecosystem, and for some of them, for the pollination. So the reduction of these populations has a serious ecological impact. The To Bee… Hornet to Bee team wants to contribute to the improvement of the current fighting methods, by replacing the alimentary bait of traps to specifically aim to lure
the asian hornet, and thus, preserve the other insect species. We wish to use molecules from the chemical signature of the hornet itself. Indeed, hornets communicate thanks to volatile molecules. Some of these molecules have a luring effect on the asian hornet, which would allow us to trap them. We even assume that these molecules
could have a repulsive effect on other insect species. The molecules of interest will be produced by synthetic biology. Synthetic biology is like the engineering of living matter applied to industrial production of products of interest. In our case, we use genes coding for enzymes, and we insert them into a micro-organism in order for it to produce these enzymes. The various enzymes needed to produce the aimed molecules are placed in the bacteria, which acquires the possibility to produce a molecule which it wasn’t able to produce before. This method is beneficial, because it only requires sugar to feed the bacteria. It also allows to avoid using solvents and to produce them in costly and polluting chemical factories. Well, I hope that this video enlightened you about our subject. If you want to learn more about synthetic biology for exemple, you can also watch our previous video about our conference on synthetic biology. As for me, I go back to my war against the Asian Hornet. Bye!

ePest Solutions: Gourmet Ant Gel


Hi, I’m Jeff with ePest Solutions. Today we are talking about Gourmet Ant Gel. This is a bait gel that is used for baiting
and eradicating a variety of different species of ants on the inside of houses and in businesses
where you may be having an ant problem. We sell this either individually or in a box
of six. If you order the tubes individually you will
get a plunger. This can be applied in cracks and crevices
where you’re seeing the activity like window sills, cracks in grout or caulk, on back splashes,
around counter tops; anywhere where you are seeing the ants� activity. Or they can be used in a bait station like
this. We sell blank stations where you can put whatever
bait you like. This is called the Ant Cafe, you just apply
a small amount inside there, you close the station and it has got a little hole where
the ants will enter. And you just want to get these where the ants
are trailing. But this is if you are trying to protect the
bait from something. So if you are trying to bait in an area that
doesn’t have an available crack or crevice to apply the gel, then you would want to use
a blank station like this. We always have the Gourmet Ant Gel in stock,
so if you order today it will go out today, free shipping. Order tonight; it will go out first thing
tomorrow.
