I asked this question on May 9th perhaps you didn't receive it. I have been using a generic roundup called Mad Dog plus. I recently purchased a generic roundup called Durango. I was told that a 24oz rate of Durango is equal to a 32oz rate of Mad Dog plus. Can you tell me ifthat is true? Thanks

I am retiring soon and want to cut expenses. I have a pest control company that comes by several times a year to spray the perimeter of the house for fleas and insects. The only reason I started using the service is because of an incident with fleas in my home last spring. My cats do not go outside but got fleas anyway. I believe that the fleas came from the crawl space under my house that I rent. Stray cats got in there over the winter. Now, the pest control man comes every two months to spray and I think that it probably isn't necessary or safe to use the chemicals. No fleas so far and no insects in my house, but can I manage this myself and save money? I also don't like using harmful chemicals. Any advice would be appreciated.

Bug identification

We recently had an exterminator spray for preventative reasons in the house but the lighted bug traps keeps catching these bugs with antennae and a tail. What are they? Are they harmful to pets or humans? The exterminator said they aren’t fleas. I’ve noticed more of them are in the traps after it rains.
