Here is a fascinating article written by Dr. Stuart Mitchell and published in the 14th issue of the PestWest 411 Newsletter. Hope you enjoy learning how the Florida Fly Baiter came to be. 

Through inspiration to perspiration researchers Dr. Phillip Koehler, Dr. Roberto Pereira, Dr. Joseph Diclaro, and Jeff Hertz (Diclaro and Hertz are in the Navy) worked to develop the Florida Fly Baiter (FFB).

Through collaboration FFB research was funded by the Department of Defense Deployed War-Fighter Protection Program, which seeks to better protect troops from insect-borne diseases. Military personnel well-know the need for effective fly control. The FFB was further developed, and is now available through, the Killgerm Group and its PestWest subsidiary.

The following article, PETS & BED BUGS: Q&A, was published in the PestWest 411 newsletter, issue 14. Again, written by Dr. Stuart Mitchell. Hope you enjoy this informative Q&A 

Bed bugs are now well beyond an emergent concern within the U.S. People now understand that Bed bugs are not only found in poor sanitation environments, but also within upscale homes and hotels. Bed bugs are not discriminating. Bed bugs set up home anywhere there are food sources (people and pets).


The following article, FLY AGGRESSION & HUMAN ANGER By Dr. Stuart Mitchell, is from the PestWest 411 Newsletter, issue #13. We really liked it and thought you will too.

Biologists have begun to research whether flies can get angry. This research is part of a wider-scope study on how animal behavior is genetically related.

Do flies get angry? That is the key question, and possibly illustrates a fly’s repeated and increasingly tenacious return to your food plate after your every attempt to move it away. To study this question, researchers crafted an experiment using Drosophila (Fruit flies).
