What are bed bugs?

Bed-bugs or bedbugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known, as it prefers to feed on human blood.

The name “bed bug” derives from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially near or inside beds and bedding or other sleep areas. Bed bugs are mainly active at night but are not exclusively nocturnal. They usually feed on their hosts without being noticed. If you find an infestation of bed bugs in your home or business, contact us to get your bed bugs eliminated for good. Not sure if you have bed bugs? We also provide bed bug inspections.

Bed bugs, as the name implies, are commonly associated with areas where we sleep. These insects lay dormant during daylight hours in small cracks and crevices, coming out at night to feed on our blood. Bedbugs often hide near bedding areas but can travel up to 100 feet to obtain a meal. Most activity occurs between midnight and 7:00 a.m. The bite of a bedbug is painless, but most people will develop an allergic reaction to the saliva transferred from the bugs as they feed. The reaction will result in red swollen and itchy skin. Rid your home of bed bugs, contact us today!

What To Do When A Bat Is In The House?

Remain calm and keep pets and children away. The bat will tend to fly in a U-shaped path, flying higher near the walls and lower in the center of the room, so keep near a wall.

Close interior doors and give the bat a single way to get outside. If the bat doesn’t exit on their own, it is best to wait until they land to try to catch them or to call a wildlife removal professional.

Bat Removal Cost 

Costs can vary. But there are 3 main principles:

Bat control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.

You usually get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do “not so good” work.

There is no one-price-fits-all. Each bat job is different.

With that said, on average a homeowner will spend approximately $300-$400 for bat removal.

After Bat Removal 

Once the bats and animals are excluded, Our Exterminator’s wildlife removal partners can perform all the necessary proofing repairs to prevent the bats and other wildlife animals from returning. When bats are removed from the attic, attic restoration or clean up of damaged insulation is highly recommended to get your attic to its correct, clean condition.

A common occurrence in late spring and summer are Bee or Wasp swarms. Although many swarms are migrating and will leave the property without building a nest within the space of a couple of days they can still cause undue stress or worry. If the problem does persist beyond this time then a nest has most likely been established and we’re on hand and ready to ensure its destruction. The nest is fumigated with either an effective insecticide spray or foam which are either sprayed directly into the nest or sprayed in the vicinity which the occupants carry into the nest upon their return. Honey or Bumble Bee nests would not be subject to extermination due to their classification as protected species. A beekeeper is sent out instead who will remove the nest without killing the Bees.

If you run a food business, it is a legal requirement to ensure your property has adequate procedures to prevent and address the risk any pest issues may cause. We offer a contract service where a number of visits per year are provided to ensure your property is being protected and any required treatment is taken care of.

If you are reporting numerous bites or you have detected a number of tiny droppings in the house you may have a Bed Bug, Flea, or Cockroach infestation. These pests have notoriety in regard to their resistance to extermination and the difficulty to subdue. To overcome this obstacle, our pest controllers are licensed to use very potent sprays and treatment products. Bed Bugs and Fleas are subject to an extensive spray treatment in the property and Cockroaches are treated through the implementation of sticky gel bait in salient areas where the Cockroaches will find the bait which in itself carries a high chance of success.

Mice, Rats, and Squirrels can infest a property and can cause serious structural problems in the long term. As they need to keep gnawing to inhibit the constant growth of their front incisors, they can gnaw through electrical wiring and cause structural damage (damage to electrical wiring carries the risk of electrical fires.) The indicators of an infestation would be the sound of scratching inside the walls or ceiling or through visual evidence in the form of droppings or holes. If this happens just contact us and we can proceed in tackling the problem. The pest controller will investigate the property, determine the hot spots for rodent activity, and apply the bait boxes and poisons throughout the property, aiming for the total destruction of the rodent infestation. While on-site we usually arrange a second visit for trap retrieval.

Insect infestations can be an irritant but they are easily treated using powders or sprays as appropriate. The powder we use is very effective against Ants. They digest it and the effects emerge with immediate effect. The sprays are effective against Moths, Flies, and other insects.

Have you experienced any Bird disturbances? In the past few years, we have expanded into the service of providing deterrence services through the implementation of netting or spikes to prevent any unwelcome Bird habitation. We aim to deliver high-quality and competitively priced Bird deterrent service through identifying the primary areas (either through investigative work or through your advice) and determining the best treatment measures through careful consideration. Anti-Bird netting can be applied to prevent Birds from entering and roosting in areas you do not want to be disturbed and bird control spikes can be fitted to ledges and locations Birds tend to perch to keep them Bird-free.

On a few occasions, you may find your garden has been invaded by Moles. Through the creation of hills and tunnels, Moles undermine both your garden’s appearance but also compromise the lawn’s integrity through tunneling. Traps are placed down the Mole holes which catch any intrigued Moles, killing them on contact.

Removal of dead pests with no required treatment is also a service we provide. If you find yourself with a dead pest that needs disposing we are only a phone call away. We understand the displeasure the decomposition stage can cause and would be happy to remedy the problem for you.

Our Pest Control Helps You Deal with Pesky Pests

You may love having guests over, but surely ants, rats, and cockroaches are not invited. No one in their right mind would want to come home to fleas. In fact, homeowners don’t even want to think about sharing their homes with any kind of pests. Nonetheless, pests pose a very real threat and are more widespread than you may imagine.

Pests can be easily spotted during the day, but the nocturnal ones, like rats and mice, are difficult to spot. It’s difficult to spot them during the day, but you may find partially nibbled food, droppings, burrows, and nests if you have rats or mice in your home. It’s scary to think about what may be lurking in the unseen areas of your home.

You can avoid the infestation of some pests simply by keeping your house clean. But others need to be disposed of with the help of a knowledgeable pest control service. A pest control service may use several methods to rid your home of unwanted insects and rodents.

It helps to know that pests want three things that are easily available in your home. These include food, water, and shelter. Though most insects are not quite keen on another basic necessity – clothing, clothing moths can often raid your wardrobe to snip away at the fabric, ruining them for good. It is necessary to have an ongoing pest control service maintenance program to ensure that infestations are under control and future ones do not arise. The service may also offer you tips and suggestions to help keep pests at bay.

Common Pests

Ants are a constant source of irritation. They can wreak havoc indoors or out and we will find the main nest and destroy it. Without destroying the nest the ants will only regroup and return.

Cockroaches are also extremely difficult to control, which is not surprising since they can go into hiding and live for a very long time without food or water. The best way to keep roaches out is by keeping your house clean. Once infested, roaches are not easy to get rid of. Our pest control service uses federally approved pesticides to keep this tenacious pest out of your home. A spotlessly clean house, especially the kitchen, is the best strategy as far as roaches are concerned.

Different kinds of bugs swarm in spring and autumn and form a significant part of the pest control service’s business. They can interfere with your comfort at home or with your gardening Pests can grow in number very quickly, so it’s a good idea to call us as soon as possible. Bugs are best dealt with by a qualified pest control service.

People especially dislike fleas because they can cause physical discomfort. Some pests are nocturnal and feed on human blood. Your local pest control service takes special care to rid you of this problem. All beds are stripped bare and every crevice and joint examined. Even the seams and buttons of mattresses may be teeming with these parasites.

Cats and dogs are carriers of fleas and children playing with the pets may be tormented by the fleas. They are not particularly difficult to control. One pest control service treatment should do the trick. Dust mites as well are often found in every home and can cause allergic reactions like asthma. Though difficult to get rid of, the simple rule of thumb is the less dust, the fewer dust mites.

Pest Control Tips for Pest Control

Always keep an eye out for any pest trouble. Most pest problems are better nipped in the bud and can be easily controlled if spotted early enough. If neglected they can snowball into a much bigger problem. A knowledgeable pest control service will suggest several basic things that can be done to prevent infestation.

Using amber lighting outside keeps insects from being attracted to bright lights. Caulking any cracks and joints is also a good idea because it helps prevent roaches and other insects from using it as their hiding place. Also, cleanliness goes a long way in helping you keep your house pest-free. Pests are tiny, and as a knowledgeable pest control service will tell you, they can survive even on the smallest crumbs. Keeping the outside of the house clean is equally important. Piles of leaves and other rubbish in your backyard form excellent nesting and hiding places for a wide variety of rodents and insects. It’s important to clean up yard debris on a regular basis.

While following the above tips will help you prevent infestation, if you do find that your house has been invaded by pests, you are better off calling  our Pest control service.

Keeping You Pest Free

While a reputable pest control service is not against home owners attempting to get rid of the occasional fly or ant on their own, they advise exercising caution. If you are attempting to use pesticides on your own, pay a great deal of attention to how you handle them, and always follow the label instructions. For more tips and ideas about how to avoid these unwanted guests in your home, contact us.

Pest control technicians are trained professionals who understand what makes pests thrive and what kills them. An average homeowner may not have such specialized knowledge. So if you find any signs of pest infestation in your house, it is better to call for your nearest pest control service rather than attempting to handle it on your own.

Our professionals are trained in locating the root cause of the problem and attacking it there. We use the latest and best equipment and technology, with minimum interference to your daily schedule. Once the infestation is taken care of, a reliable pest control technician will give you useful tips to keep your home free of pests.
