Re: [BKARTS] bindery pests / insects



I have learned that when the spiders appear, it is a sign that silverfish are lurking, a common book , paste and paper pest (also spiders seems to eat them in total, so there are no signs in the webs). To keep things in control, I put eucalyptus oil in my cleaning fluids (bugs hate it) and sprinkle boric acid behind shelves and in dark places. This seems to work well, and my bindery is on a busy street and between a mexican restaurant and florist, not the most desirable neighbors for keeping pests out of the way. Plus regular vigorous vacuuming.
Just another idea.
