Editor’s note: This is a response to questions asked of Winston in the comments to his first post.
Many good questions, here are a few answers and or comments.
1. Jess thanks for the positive message and for the links in the original post. (But watch that mouth)
2. Detection tools, two of my favorites are an $11 Radio Shack Rim Free Lighted 2X Magnifier. Now I know this does not offer much magnification but the angle of the rimless lens coupled with a bright (but not too bright). Direct LED WORKS well. Also blue led lights and UV lights help when inspecting. ( By the way I am otherwise not
a fan of LEDs).
3. Willow: The ban in NYC applies only to NYC leased or owned properties, it is a pesticide phase out that may have phased out too much and yes it is pyrethrin which is banned in NY City owned or leased buildings- click here for more info.
