Q&A Home

Laura from Las Vegas, Nv writes,

We live on a large lot in Las Vegas that borders the desert. Have huge ant problem in yard.

We do get some centipedes seasonally indoors and around house foundation. We have lots of lizards around, which we don't mind b/c they eat the bugs. Have also seen nests of cockroaches out in the desert and other people in area have scorpions (we don't-probably the lizards). We have another 5ft outside our property walls in the desert which I feel we can treat to be effective. Not sure what kinds of products to use and we don't want to harm the lizards, if possible. Finally, we have a ground squirrel problem. Any ideas?


We would recommend using a product called Cy Kick CS. You can apply 3 feet up and out around the outside perimeter of you home. Also, indoors cracks and crevices. Keep in mind that this product will kill most of the pest the lizards are preying on. It will not harm lizards, but they may go elsewhere for food. Cykick is also recommended for desert conditions, because it stands up to UV rays and works really well on scorpions. It will also kill roaches that come incontact with it. You can use Maxforce Complete where you have seen the ants trailing. Be sure not to spray where you may apply the bait.

Please visit out ground squirrel control page.  Trapping and repelling are the best options.
