Da Bug Doctor


BRIGETTE: MAKE NO MISTAKE, WE ARE ALL LUCKY TO LIVE IN HAWAII BUT THERE IS AN UNPLEASANT SIDE TO PARADISE. I AM TALKING ABOUT THE BUGS. ESPECIALLY COCKROACHES. SOMETHING THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS WHICH IS REALLY GROSS. EW. LIKELY, I’VE GOT THE BUG DOCTOR HERE WITH ME. HI, ANDY. THANK YOU FOR COMING. YOU BROUGHT US SOME GOODIES AND YOU ARE GOING TO GIVE US A DEMONSTRATION OF HOW SAFELY ELIMINATING ALL TYPES OF BUGS IN AND AROUND HOMES. BASICALLY — BUGS ARE NO DIFFERENT FROM US. THEY LIKE FOOD, WATER AND SHELTER. WE DON’T EVEN LIKE TO EAT STALE FOOD. SO DO BUGS. BRIGETTE: TELL US ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE ON THE TABLE. BASICALLY, ONE WAY NOT TO ATTRACT THEM TO YOUR HOUSE IS ACTUALLY PUT YELLOW BUG LIGHTS OR AMBER LIGHTS ON THE OUTSIDE. THIS WAY, THEY WILL GO TO YOUR NEIGHBOR INSTEAD OF YOUR HOUSE. BRIGETTE: GOT IT. ANDY: LOOKING AT THE LIGHT, THEY GET BLINDED. ALL THE CRAWLING INSECTS. WHEN THEY RUN OUT, THEY COME INSIDE. THAT IS WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO. NOW INSIDE YOUR HOUSE, THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS YOU CAN DO. YOU CAN PUT BASICALLY TOILET BOWL DEODORANT BLOCKS THAT COME WITH PLASTIC OR WIRE. YOU JUST RIP IT WHERE IT GOES INTO THE BLOCK AND PUT IT ON ALL YOUR SINK AREAS. KITCHEN AND BATHROOM. WHAT IT DOES IS IT CREATES A ZONE WHERE THEY CAN’T SMELL THE FOOD. BRIGETTE: AH. ANDY: SO YOU ARE BASICALLY TRICKING THEM NOT TO GO UNDERNEATH YOUR SINK. BECAUSE THERE IS NO FOOD. THE OTHER THING IS YOU TAKE TWO MOTH BALLS, AND WE HAVE LAVENDER MOTH BALLS, REGULAR MOTH BALLS. YOU CAN PUT IT IN YOUR TRASHCAN BEFORE YOU PUT THE LINER ON. THAT WILL TAKE THEM OUT. THE REGULAR MOTH BALLS, YOU CAN PUT IT IN THE TRASH RECEPTACLE ON THE OUTSIDE. EVERY TIME IT EMPTIES, THAT NEUTRALIZES AND FUMIGATED FROM THAT AREA. BRIGETTE: GOT IT. ANDY: NOW ROACHES AND ANTS AND ALL INSECTS INSIDE THE HOUSE, NEVER SPRAY BECAUSE WHAT YOU SPRAY TODAY, THEY ARE IMMUNE TOMORROW. IT’S FOR NAUGHT. THERE IS A RESIDUE BUT THEY ARE ALSO REPELLENT. THE CHEMICAL CHOICE TO USE WOULD BE 91% RUBBING ALCOHOL WHICH IS A CONTACT SPRAY. BRIGETTE: SIMPLY RUBBING ALCOHOL? ANDY: 91%, NOT 76%. THEY SELL IT WITH A READY SQUIRT BOTTLE. YOU CAN BUY THE REFILL WHICH IS REALLY GOOD. BASICALLY, THAT IS YOUR CHEMICAL OF CHOICE FROM NOW ON. BRIGETTE: YOU HAVE SOME SPICES? ANDY: YES, THIS IS SALT. THIS IS BLACK AND WHITE PEPPER. THOSE WHO LIVE IN TOWNHOMES AND HAVE STRAY CATS COMING IN AND THEY ARE USING YOUR YARD AS A BATHROOM. WHAT YOU DO IS SPRINKLE BLACK-AND-WHITE PEPPER WHERE THEY DEFECATE. THEY’LL INHALE THAT. IT HITS THEIR SINUSES. IT IS LIKE ME SPRAYING WITH PEPPER SPRAY. THEY WILL NEVER COME BACK. IT IS NATURAL. THE BOUNCE SHEET IS ONE OF THE BEST REPELLENTS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU TRAVEL. YOU CAN PUT IT UNDERNEATH YOUR COLLAR OR SCARF. HALF A SHEET, PUT IT AROUND YOUR NECK. HALF A SHEET IN EACH POCKET, AROUND YOUR ANKLE. YOU GO ON THE PLANE, NO BED BUGS. IT REPELS THEM. YOUR CARRY-ON, YOU HAVE TO PUT SOME IN EACH COMPARTMENT SO THEY DON’T GO THERE. THIS REPELS MOSQUITOES, FLEAS AND TICKS. BASICALLY, IF YOU GO HIKING, THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS TAKE ONE OF THOSE SHEETS, PUT IT INSIDE YOUR BASEBALL CAP, PUT YOUR HAT ON. NOTHING BITES YOU HERE. BRIGETTE: I WISH WE COULD TALK MORE BECAUSE I REALLY HATE BUGS AND I WOULD LOVE TO LEARN MORE, BUT TELL US ABOUT AN EVENT HAPPENING THIS SATURDAY. ANDY: WE HAVE A CLASS CALLED THE BUG DOCTOR, WHAT’S BUGGING YOU AT PORTER WATER SUPPLY. I’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW. BASICALLY, WE HAVE A CLASS TWICE A YEAR, SEPTEMBER AND JANUARY. IT’S ALWAYS A FULL HOUSE. BASICALLY, THIS IS NOT EVEN ONE FOURTH OF WHAT I BRING TO THE TABLE BECAUSE WHAT I TEACH IS SHOW AND TELL. IT IS COMMON SENSE PEST CONTROL. YOU ALWAYS TRAP YOUR INSECTS. BRIGETTE: YOU ARE GOING TO BE AT CENTRAL PARK INDUSTRIAL AREA THIS SATURDAY FROM 10:30 A.M. TO NOON. THEY GET TO LEARN EVERYTHING. YOU GAVE US A CONDENSED VERSION BUT YOU WILL GIVE WAY MORE. ANDY: WAY MORE. YEAH, EVERYBODY THAT HAS ATTENDED IT, THEY LOVE IT BECAUSE THEY DEAL WITH ROACHES AND BUGS. BRIGETTE: WE ALL DO. ANDY: THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO CONTROL IT BECAUSE THEY CALL PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF IT. YET, THEY STILL HAVE A PROBLEM. MY JOB IS TO TEACH THEM THE HABITS OF A BUG, KNOW THY ENEMY. THIS WAY YOU HAVE BETTER CONTROL. BRIGETTE: ANDY, THE BUG DOCTOR.
