I have a 10 year old Idaho white pine log home. We are continually getting flies, wasps and stink bugs in our home. we are double chinked inside and out. We are about to do a refinish on our outside logs and want to add an insecticide to curb the bugs. I have seen ads for Bug Juice. Is this a good product or is there a better one for our problem?


I don't think the Bug Juice is going to help. One problem with the juice is you must keep the logs clean of dirt and dust to work since the bugs must come in contact with it. It sounds to me like you have a chink/caulking issue or the windows are installed improperly. You need to get up high on the walls and inspect around roof purlins and soffits.

Can Sherwin Williams woodscapes solid stain be applied over Sikkens Cetol 1 and 2? Would the original stain have to be sanded off?
