If you’re ever unsure of what pest you have, we can help! We have experienced entomologists on staff who can help identify your problem pest. Just take a photo of the pest and email us and we can ID the pest and present you DIY pest control options and recommended products you can purchase to eliminate the pest. The best services safeguard you and your loved ones or employees from unwanted visitors by having a technician inspect and identify the pest problem, offer an instant quote, and then exterminate. When you have a bug problem, you don’t want to wait long for someone to take care of it. The best pest control companies will respond to your call within 24 hours. They will handle your current bug problem and help you take preventive measures to ensure bugs wont return. Techs can use many methods, such as sprays and bait traps, to control several varieties of pests termites, ants, spiders, wasps, snakes, bedbugs, and others.

The first step in bed bug eradication is the accurate identification of these pests. Starting with the first inspection our experts will assess and identify any possible hiding spots throughout your home or office. Using specialized cameras and high illumination lighting, we will look for signs of bed bugs throughout your entire home or office. Bed bugs hide near where we sleep or remain dormant for extended periods of time. Their black droppings are often found in the seams of your mattress and inside your box spring, inside and around your nightstands, behind loose wallpaper, within clutter, behind your headboard, and in other furniture nearby. Our experts will use their experience and training to provide you with a detailed inspection and assessment.

Indoor Pesticides Safe For Pets
At our company, we are able to meet and exceed challenges because we believe that delivering the highest quality pest control begins and ends with three core fundamentals experienced pest exterminators, effective solutions, and excellent customer service. As commercial exterminators, our roots are in expert pest management, not in advertising, and we believe in focusing on what we do best. There exists a large number of pest populations. The damage that can be caused by their infestation varies in accordance with the different types of pests. There are some commonly occurring household pests like rodents, cockroaches, bedbugs, fleas, moths, termites, and ants. Many people mistakenly believe that a small pest can be killed easily. However, you should keep in mind that these tiny living organisms have immense resilience and reproduce at exponential rates! If the infestation became extensive, long-term, and widespread, the extermination procedures are relatively hard to administer and they give consequently less productive results. We are sure that learned and concerned people like you will never risk the safety and health of your loved ones and you will take every possible step in pest alleviation at your home or office.

Our Pest Control company offers you the most quality-oriented and long-term services in this regard. Whether you reside in a house, rent an apartment, or have a business, you’re going to confront problems with pests and insects. Trying to exterminate pests from your home can be quite a frustrating experience when you understand that the products you buy from the big box retailers don’t ever work as well as advertised. The truth is, what those retailers take in the pest control aisle that you plop down so much money for are diluted or watered down pest management products. You’re basically paying for the branding along with the container. The merchandise which truly does work efficiently is professional-grade DIY pest management insecticides and pesticides. The first step to pest management is to recognize the kind of pest you’ve got. Some insects come around because of other insects, so don’t assume that because you caught a mouse that mice are the only issue. By way of example, when you have a wolf-spider issue, then you could also have an issue with their common prey, cockroaches.

Once Upon a Termite…
There was a time when there was basically one way to do a termite job, and that was with organochlorine termiticides, of which chlordane was the most popular. But beginning in the early 1980s, individual states began banning the use of chlordane, and the U. S. EPA banned its use nationwide in 1988. The loss of chlordane led to a flurry of research to find suitable replacements, and many “replacement” termiticides came — and went. Thankfully, though, pesticide manufacturers stopped trying to “replace” chlordane, and instead started “thinking out of the box” for new methods to stop these voracious pests. Out of this new way of thinking came two revolutionary approaches to termite control: termite baiting, and non-repellent liquid termiticides.

Termite Baiting using the Advance Termite Baiting System
Since the mid-1990s, termite baiting has become a viable, environmentally sound option in termite control. Environmentally, it’s sound science: Less product in the environment means a more earth-friendly approach. The Advance Termite Baiting method also means termite extermination can be accomplished without drilling into flooring or concrete inside or outside your home, and without using liquid pesticides. This makes termite baiting an ideal method for homes with wells on the property or homes with expensive wood or ceramic tiles inside the house. The Advance Termite Baiting System also provides the biggest bait load available in any containerized termite bait system, which means a constant supply of bait to eliminate the colony more quickly than most competing systems. Bigger bait loads also mean less frequent inspections are needed. Because there’s more bait available, we don’t need to monitor monthly, as some systems do. Instead, we can monitor on a quarterly basis and still achieve rapid termite elimination — with no drilling and without liquid pesticides. This saves you money, as well as helps to protect the environment.

How Termite Baiting Works
Bait stations are installed in the soil around the perimeter of your home and in areas that we know to be conducive to termite infestation. (The installation process will usually take less than an hour. ) Initially, the stations are baited with a non-toxic wood attractant to avoid unnecessary pesticide use. The stations are monitored on a set schedule for termite activity. Your bait system will be inspected monthly for the first 3 months. All other visits are done within a 90-day time frame. We also perform an exterior pest control service at the time of monitoring. When termites attack a bait station, a non-toxic attractant is replaced with an attractant cartridge that also contains the active ingredient, which the termites continue to eat and carry to their nests. The active ingredient is an environmentally-friendly, slow-acting insect growth regulator that is passed through the colony members, causing complete elimination of the termite colony. Termite baiting is probably the most earth-friendly approach to termite control, and many of our customers prefer it. But it does have a couple of minor disadvantages. Firstly, it tends to take longer to achieve colony eradication than liquid treatments; and secondly, the stations do have to be monitored on an ongoing basis — forever — to maintain effective control. That’s why we also offer a second option.

Termite Control with Termidor
Termite baiting is a very popular termite control option, but many customers prefer conventional, liquid termite treatments. Liquid treatments tend to achieve faster control and require much less ongoing maintenance than termite baiting systems. That’s why in addition to termite baiting, we also offer termite treatment using Termidor, a revolutionary termiticide that has been shown to be 100 percent effective in eliminating termite colonies, but whose active ingredient is effective at very low concentrations and is considered to be much more environmentally friendly than old-fashioned liquid termiticides. Termidor works differently than old-school “termite barrier” chemicals like Chlordane and Dursban. Unlike those and other earlier termiticides, Termidor is invisible and non-repellent to termites. They can’t see, smell, or taste it. It also has a delayed effect, so not only do the termites wander freely through treated soil, but they also live long enough to poison the rest of their colonies.

Termidor Application
Like liquid termiticides in general, Termidor is injected into the soil around your home using specialized equipment. In some cases, we may also apply the termiticide from inside the home (for example, adjacent to cracks and other penetrations through the basement floor) if needed to provide effective termite control consistent with our earth-friendly approach to pest control, we evaluate each job individually and design a treatment plan that will effectively eradicate the termite problem, but without applying more termiticide than is needed to do the job. Whichever termite control method you choose, you can be confident in our Pest Control Company’s commitment to quality, workmanship, and environmental stewardship.

Choosing a termite extermination method isn’t always easy. Most people’s homes are their biggest investment, and protecting that investment requires careful consideration of all the options. We’re happy to come out and provide a no-obligation inspection, as well as help you decide which termite treatment method is best for you.

pest 3/22/22 – gtg

Ants and wasps only become active in March and usually die off by October. However, mild winter conditions can result in wasps being active up to November.

The wasp’s nest can be found anywhere but most predominantly in roof spaces (behind facia board) and outhouses. You might also find nests in a wall cavity or any other crack and crevice in the structure of a building.

The Queen Wasp usually comes out of hibernation in March and immediately begins to lay eggs. Worker Wasps hatch and their task is to feed the Queen (who never leaves the nest) and also to develop the nest itself. This they do rapidly making room for many more workers and the nest often becomes the size of a football or larger.

Our Pest Control company once dealt with a nest that was built on the back of a dormant boiler house door. It measured 4′ x 2′ and bellied out a further 18″.

Wasps are quite dangerous when attacked or threatened, as they sting rapidly and repeatedly. Great tales of daring as told to us by men who were brave to the point of being reckless are proof positive that the garden hose will not work and attempting to burn them out with petroleum-based products is most unwise!!!

If you discover a wasps nest in March, April, or even May, the chances are that it will be no bigger than a tennis ball. Do not, however, allow the apparent size of it to fool you into believing that there are only a handful of wasps in residence. Quite a substantial number can live quite happily in a very small space. In fact, a medium to large nest can accommodate up to 25,000 wasps! Unlike Bees, wasps do not swarm, and a new nest is produced each year.

If the wasp is under threat, their most pressing priority is to protect their Queen. Therefore, they will attack. Also, wasps not in the nest at the time of threat will never be too far away and can sense this threat. Therefore, not only will you be dealing with the nest, but you will also have to cope with wasps returning to it from behind you.

Our Pest Control company has used three different types of treatment for wasps. Of the three we prefer to use a Dusting Powder which, because of its composition, can reach areas that might otherwise be inaccessible.

A short mention on Bees. Bees are a protected species in some areas. Therefore, pest control operatives are not entitled to kill them.

Bees differ from wasps by color. The wasp has a yellow and black abdomen while the bee is darker in color, almost dark brown.

Bees tend to swarm so they are easily removed by professional Beekeepers. Such services can be found in Service Directories.

Termites (Order Isoptera) exist to convert dead wood and other organic materials containing cellulose to humus. Unfortunately, termites
cannot distinguish dead wood used to build your home from dead wood in the forest.

There are approximately 13 to 14 colonies of termites per acre in this geographic region.  This enables numerous termite colonies to feed on your home.  Termites need moisture to survive, their soft bodies require an available moisture source so they will not dehydrate.  Termites construct mud tubes to conceal themselves, provide moisture, and protect themselves from natural enemies.  These mud tubes are sometimes visible to a qualified pest control operator, sometimes they are not visible.  Some structures restrict visible activity due to built-in fixtures such as drywall, carpet, and paneling.

The most common termite found in North America is thought to be the eastern subterranean termite (reticulitermes flavipes). Swarming can begin as early February in the southern United States and as late as May or June in the colder areas. Late fall swarming from September to November may also occur.  Swarms have occurred every month of the year where colonies are associated with heated slabs.

When a Pest Control Inspector inspects a building in which a subterranean termite infestation is suspected, the inspector must be able to determine whether termites are actually present.  Sometimes an active infestation is obvious. Other times it may require a great deal of effort, situation awareness, and the use of specialized techniques and information to reach the correct diagnosis. The presence of swarmers or their shed wings almost invariably indicates that there is a termite infestation. When an Inspector visits your home, you
will be offered the opportunity to observe the infestation and/or any damage present before treatment is scheduled. The Inspector will complete a diagram of your structure and will note the damage and treatment methods.

The objective in treating termite infestations is to establish a chemical barrier between the termite nest, usually in the ground, and the wood structure. Treatment of the soil consists of the application of termiticides to the soil under and adjacent to the structure. A continuous barrier should be established along the inside and outside of the structure, under the slabs, and around utility entrances.

Another alternative treatment is the baiting system, which is being installed by some Pest Control Operators. If you have an infestation,
baiting outside and around the exterior of the structure will most likely not work. If termites have a food source readily available, your home, for example, it has not been proven that the baiting system will lure them away. Termites are blind, and they forage for food at random. Once they have located a food source, they will not stop feeding until that food source is exhausted. The baiting system may in fact draw more termites into and around the structure.  Feel free to discuss this with the inspector when he visits your home or
business.

Why do we offer a free inspection?  If you are concerned about your health, you receive a physical once a year (and that’s not free!).  Your house or business is the same, it needs a physical once a year because what lies beneath may not be visible to you.  Our inspector will arrange an appointment with you, if damage or termites are found, the inspector will gladly show you any problems found. Feel free to call, email, or use the form on this site to register for your free appointment.

Cockroaches are among the most common pests.  Based on historical evidence, cockroaches date back for over 300 million years.  Their
size vary greatly; some species are up to several inches long.  Of the 3500 species of cockroaches, approximately 60 can be found in the United States.  Cockroaches produce odorous secretions from various points in their bodies which can affect the flavor of various foods.  Where larger infestations are located, a characteristic odor may be detected. Although several digestive diseases have been transmitted experimentally, different forms of gastroenteritis appear to be the principal diseases transmitted by the cockroach.  The organisms causing these diseases are carried on the legs and bodies of cockroaches and are then deposited on food and utensils as cockroaches forage.  Cockroach excrement and cast skins also contain a number of allergens, to which many people exhibit an allergic reaction, such
as skin rashes, watery eyes, and sneezing.

Only a few of the cockroach species found in the United States routinely enter and infest our dwellings.  Among those are the German cockroach, American Cockroach, oriental cockroach, brown-banded cockroach, smoky-brown cockroach, Australian cockroach, brown cockroach, woods cockroach, field cockroach, and the Asian cockroach. Of these species, the first five represent 95% of all cockroach management in and around buildings.

Most cockroaches are tropical and sub-tropical in origin, generally living out of doors.  They are mostly active during the night hours, during which they mate and forage for food.  Cockroaches may be seen during daylight hours, particularly when a heavy population is present or when there is a lack of food and water.  Cockroaches prefer a warm and moist environment.  Cockroaches feed on a variety of foods including starches, sweets, grease, and meat products but will feed on materials such as cheese, beer, leather, bakery products, starch in book bindings, glue, hair, flakes of dried skin, dead animals, and plant materials.

GERMAN COCKROACH (Blattella germanica [Linnaeus])
The German Cockroach is the most common cockroach species that infest our houses, apartments, restaurants, hotels, and other institutions in the U.S.  Adults are pale to medium brown and about 1/2 to 5/8 inch long.  Their feeding habits are general but are attracted to fermented food and beverage residues.  If water is present, an adult can survive a month without food.  However, without
food or water, they can survive for about two weeks.  It is important to note that any one treatment will not generally rid a structure of an infestation.  It will take several treatments, as humans can continue to bring new cockroaches into the home or business.  Cockroaches can travel in boxes or even foods from the grocery store.  With this type of activity, cockroaches can continue to survive unless appropriate pest management is put into place over several months.

AMERICAN COCKROACH (Periplaneta americana [Linnaeus])
The American cockroach is also referred to as the water bug, flying water bug, and in some areas of the south, it is known as the palmetto bug.  It is the largest of the common species, growing to 1 to 5 inches or more in length.  It is reddish-brown, with a pale brown or yellow border on the upper surface of the pronotum. When indoors, adults are usually found in dark, moist areas of basements and crawl spaces, as well as in and around bathtubs, showers, clothes hampers, drains, pipe chases, and sewers.  The American cockroach feeds on a variety of food but is primarily attracted to decaying organic matter.

ORIENTAL COCKROACH (Blatta orientalis [Linnaeus])
The oriental cockroach is also referred to as the waterbug, black beetle, or schad roach. It is found in all parts of the United States. The total length of this cockroach is about 1.25 inches for the female and about 1 inch for the male. Adults are very dark brown or nearly black and usually have a greasy sheen to their bodies. Nymphs and adults have similar habits and are found associated with decaying organic matter. They can be found in yards, beneath leaves, in dumps, in crawl spaces, and in the mulch of flower beds. They are also common in high moisture situations such as sewers, drains, and dark, damp basements. They feed on all types of filth, rubbish
and other decaying organic matter.

BROWN-BANDED COCKROACH (Supella longipalpis [Serville])
This cockroach is smaller than the others and is rarely more than a 1/2 inch long. It is light brown and can be distinguished from the German cockroach by the presence of two lighter, transverse bands running from one side to the other across the base of the wings and abdomen in adults, and in the same position on the nymphs. These cockroaches can be found on ceilings, high on walls, behind picture
frames and light fixtures, or near motors of refrigerators and other appliances. The brown-banded cockroach prefers to feed on starchy materials. However, they can be found feeding on almost anything and have been known to feed on non-food materials such as nylon stockings. These cockroaches are more often found in homes, apartments hotels, and hospital rooms than in stores, restaurants, and kitchens. They are often transported in furniture and will rapidly spread throughout an entire building.

SMOKY-BROWN COCKROACH (Periplaneta fuliginosa [Serville])
Smoky-brown cockroaches are closely related to the American cockroach but are distinguished by their smaller size. This cockroach is found chiefly in central Texas and eastward along the Gulf Coast and up the eastern seaboard. Although it feeds on almost anything, it prefers plant life and organic decaying materials.

WOOD COCKROACH (Parcoblatta spp.)
The term woods cockroach covers a number of cockroach species, usually of the same genus and has similar habits. Woods cockroaches are small, usually not more than 2/3 of an inch long. Adults are dark brown with the sides of the thorax and the front part of the wings are margined with yellow. They are generally found out of doors beneath loose bark, in woodpiles, stumps, and hollow trees. Woods cockroaches feed primarily on decaying organic matter.

AUSTRALIAN COCKROACH (Periplaneta australasiae [Fabrisius])
The Australian cockroach is similar in appearance to the American cockroach but is rarely more than 1.25 inches long. It is reddish-brown and can be distinguished by prominent yellow stripes along the outer front edge of either wing and by a prominent dark spot in the center of the pronotum. This cockroach is found primarily in the South but has been found in greenhouses, zoo buildings, and houses in the northern states. It feeds on plant materials, although it will feed on various starchy materials in homes.

BROWN COCKROACH (Periplaneta brunnea [Burmeister])
Brown cockroaches are generally distributed in the Southern United States but have been found as far north as Philadelphia, Pa., and Columbus, Ohio. They are found indoors and outdoors and feed on plant materials. Their appearance is the same as the American cockroach except their body has less distinct markings.

FIELD COCKROACH (Blattella vaga [Hebard])
This is a small cockroach, slightly smaller than the German cockroach. It can be distinguished by the blackish area on the front of the head. It feeds largely on decomposing vegetation and is common in irrigated areas. It normally lives outdoors under stones, clumps of earth, and similar locations.

ASIAN COCKROACH (Blattella asahinai Mizukubo)
This species is native to Southern Asia. It is believed to have been introduced through the Port of Tampa. It is similar in appearance to the German cockroach but has very different behavior. It prefers to infest shaded and moist areas in the landscape, grassy areas, and ground cover.

BUG KNOWLEDGE

Bees, Wasps and Hornets – The Flying Stingers We Fear
These are pests that we have a love-hate relationship with. Yes, we love to see all the pollinators doing what they do best and that’s keeping flowers and plants, well, pollinated. They fly from flower to flower buzzing happily doing what they’re meant to do and doing it very well. We remain quietly at a safe distance, taking time to smell the flowers and watching nature hard at work, when suddenly, much to our dismay, we are noticed and now we get attacked and stung. You may ask, “What did I do? ” Sorry you’re not the first nor will you be the last person stung without provocation. It could be a color we wore or a cologne/perfume we have on or maybe a sudden movement. Who knows? All we know is, we are now a victim of some little insects right for protection. Then we turn and notice a large wasp nest in the eave of our home. What now?

Bees are probably the nicest of the stingers. They are a social little bunch and tolerate a lot before attacking. One good reason is they can only sting once, yes it’s a kamikaze attack for them and their not in too much of a hurry to end it. I think their view is “so many flowers and too little time to pollinate them all” so they don’t want to give it all up on a whim. You have to be threatening the hive or
them before the sting comes.

Many mistakes a Yellow Jacket for a Bee. Bees are smaller and are fuzzy with orange and black features. Yellow Jackets are not fuzzy and are yellow and black. Bees orange, and Yellows Jackets, yellow. (For emphasis) Yellow Jackets are by far the meanest of the group. They most definitely attack without provocation and unlike bees, they can sting multiple times. Wasps also can sting multiple times and there is a wide variety of them around. Also, there is a large variety of hornets but don’t forget the feisty bumblebee. He’s an ill-tempered little bully too.

The question asked earlier was what to do once your home has been invaded by these stinging pests. Do not attempt the extermination yourself. You may find yourself getting more than you bargained for and you or a family member could even end up in a hospital. Call a professional exterminator for the Yellow Jackets, Wasps, Hornets or Bees. You may even consider an experienced Bee Keeper for the Bees. We, as exterminators don’t really like to kill Bees but if they are a danger to you and your family, you come first.

So think safety first, not always money. There are enough Pest Control professionals around to get a good price.

No doubt you have noticed, the spider population has increased this year. Remember over the past few years, we were in a drought or recovering from a drought. So the insect and spider population was noticeably down. But when we have had an increase in moisture, it brings about an increase in insects. When insects increase, their predators also increase thus, the increase in spiders. What can we do about it? One method of control for insects and spiders is an obvious one – having a clean home. Dusting and vacuuming are very good methods for controlling spiders inside your house. But then when you go outside, you may see webs and spiders around your porch lights, on your eves, under your decks, under the siding around your house, and even in your mulch or bushes around your property. You may see a beautifully made circular web, and just a few inches to the right or left you’ll see a very large spider called a web orb spider. Although they may not cause any harm to you or me, they look like a big crab sitting underneath your deck. They eat a lot of insects!

With the attraction of available food comes other types of spiders, such as black widows, wolf spiders, and cellar spiders all wanting in on the feast. But being a homeowner like me, you don’t want to share your home with bad or even good predators, and that’s why you need professional help to treat and get rid of spiders. Your typical household spider sprays do not have the strength to permanently eliminate a spider issue. Spiders are killed by contact, or they may be killed ingesting a poisoned insect, or through specially designed pesticide dust and sometimes even just a good old broom. Today’s chemicals used by a professional exterminator are residual which means they last long enough in the area applied to allow spiders and insects to pass through and absorb through their exoskeleton, be poisoned by eating another poisoned insect, or possibly even by grooming themselves in a treated area. The point is, today’s professionals have the education necessary to access and determine the best possible treatment for your specific needs and protection.

Rodent Control
Rodents can cause headaches with homeowners and the most common around your home are rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, and gophers. A few of these common rodents are also the most problematic, like rats, mice, and gophers. Gophers, in particular, can cause havoc on your lawn, leaving underground burrows, large holes, and pockets of uneven dirt around your lawn. Gophers are also known to chew through plastic sprinkler systems and underground utilities. Rats and Mice have similar destructive qualities to homes by chewing on electrical lines, leaving feces, and chewing holes in your interior to access food storage. Although mice and rats prefer to live outdoors where the vegetation is fresh, they can find your home just as cozy and comfortable which is why it’s important to get a screening by one of our qualified professionals to help prevent a future Rodent invasion. Our rodent control experts are qualified and certified to help you fix your rodent problem.

Termite Extermination
Termites are one of the most destructive pests for your home. They can cause damage in almost any nook and cranny, hard-to-reach places in your home, and cause a lot of expensive damage to the wooden structure. Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year, finding wood, leaf litter, animal dropping, and soil as their main food source. No other pest or insect has even caused close to an economic impact as the Termite. To protect your home from potential heavy damage, contact a qualified termite exterminator at the first sign of damage. We will send you 5 star rated local termite control experts that will meet and exceed your expectations.

Bee Removal
Bees are one of the most recognizable flying insects in the United States, better known for producing honey and beeswax. While it’s easy to appreciate these products from our local grocery store, it’s not easy to appreciate the invasion of our home or vegetation on your property due to their aggressive territorial behavior. In warmer weather and climates, bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets like to nest and breed which includes areas hard to reach by predators and those places are include your home, roof, or trees around your area. Locating these flying insects and safely removing their habitats is what we specialize in, so please don’t attempt to remove or bother a nest should you stumble across one in your area. Our qualified professionals can remove any infestations or nests and provide you with safe, reliable solutions for any immediate and future danger. If you are looking for Bee Removal, then contact us today and we will send you our Bee Removal experts that will assist you with your problem. Satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.

Spider Removal
Spiders are one of the most common household pests. While they serve a very important role in the ecosystem, some species are deadly and you do not want them within 100 feet of your home and especially your children. Venomous spiders are typically not aggressive, but they hunt by surprise and are excellently camouflaged. They like to hide in dark cool crevices and places that get little foot traffic, like corners of your garage. They only really attack when they feel intimidated and are in danger. For instance, if you were to be sweeping in your garage and put your hand in front of the pile of debris which has a black widow, or the brown recluse. If you do have these dangerous species of spiders in your home, it is best to not get in touch with them. Contact our local spider removal experts that will help you remove these pests with the proper care they deserve and that your family needs. Also by including a monthly maintenance plan for the spider removal, you will have peace of mind knowing that an invisible perimeter has been established which eludes these critters to stay out of harm’s way.

Honey bees (or honeybees) are a subset of bees in the genus Apis, primarily distinguished by the production and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests out of wax. Honeybees are the only extant members of the tribe Apini, all in the genus Apis. Currently, there are only seven recognized species of the honeybee with 44 subspecies, though historically, anywhere from six to eleven species have been recognized. Honeybees represent only a small fraction of the approximately 20,000 known species of bees. Some other types of related bees produce and store honey, but only members of the genus Apis are true honeybees.

As in a few other types of eusocial bees, a colony generally contains one queen bee, a fertile female; seasonally up to a few thousand drone bees or fertile males; and a large seasonally variable population of sterile female worker bees. Details vary among the different species of honey bees, but common features include:

All honey bees live in colonies where the workers will sting intruders as a form of defense, and alarmed bees will release a pheromone that stimulates the attack response in other bees. The different species of honey bees are distinguished from all other bee species (and virtually all other Hymenoptera) by the possession of small barbs on the sting, but these barbs are found only in the worker bees. The sting and associated venom sac of honey bees are also modified so as to pull free of the body once lodged (autotomy), and the sting apparatus has its own musculature and ganglion, which allow it to keep delivering venom once detached. The worker dies after the sting is torn from its body. Despite common belief, it is the only species of bee to die after stinging. [clarification needed] But if left undisturbed, after stinging through human skin, for example, a honey bee will slowly rotate, effectively unscrewing its sting, and fly away intact.

Bees are one of the hardest-working creatures on the planet. Working incessantly for their queen to keep the colony active, bees never stop moving and producing, cleaning and building. While most sightings can go smoothly, a bad encounter with an angry swarm of interrupted or threatened bees can be deadly.

Bee swarms are common close to a hive. They buzz around collecting nectar from nearby flowers and bring it back to the colony.

It is important to remember bees are not out to attack people. They generally just buzz on by while foraging for pollen. They do not mind being in close proximity to humans as long as they are not bothered.

To avoid getting attacked by bees, one should never swat or threaten a bee. The reason for some swarm of bee attacks is due to the release of a pheromone a threatened bee will emit. This pheromone sends a distress signal to all other bees in the area and will attract the whole swarm to come in and defend them.

The most common reason a swarm of bees attacks would be if their hive is threatened. Under no circumstances should anyone who is not a professional come close to a beehive. A whole swarm of defensive bees may attack if their home feels threatened. All the bees in a hive answer to their queen, and since she lives in the hive, a swarm will attack anyone who comes too close for comfort.

The bottom line and best advice to avoid a swarm of bees attack are to never make a bee feel threatened. Bees attack in swarms because they are a loyal team with one goal, and that is to make the queen happy.

Helpful Tips About Getting Pests Out Of Your House

Even if you live in a very modest, scarcely furnished home, you deserve to NOT be living with pests. If pests are taking over your home, then read the below article for excellent tips on how to resolve your pest problems. The faster you start taking care of the problem, the faster they are gone.

Plug up holes that pests, like mice, can get into with steel wool. Even though mice and rats can chew through a number of materials, these fine strands of metal are too tough for their teeth. Be sure to fill all openings larger than 1/2 an inch. Remember that rodents can get through very tiny openings.

Bedbugs are sneaky little creatures that are hard to kill. Be sure to seal off any open holes prior to attempting any extermination. Doing this means no bugs can come out after you have been exterminated.

Brush should be placed away from the house. It should be at least 12 inches away from the home. Despite your best efforts, a variety of insects and pests will live in the bushes surrounding your home. If you put the bush close to the house, you will be inviting them in.

Keep water from pooling and standing stagnant around your home. Pests are highly attracted to standing water. Inspect your home carefully for leaky pipes and remember to empty all of the trays that are underneath your indoor plants. If you make water sources scarce, chances are good that they will find a new place to call home.

When battling mice near your home, try mint. Mint plants surrounding your home’s foundation help out greatly. This will keep mice from wanting to live there. Mint leaves are a great tool when trying to ward off mice. This will repel mice in most cases, but always remember to sprinkle fresh mint leaves.

You need to check your whole house, even if many areas usually don’t show signs of pests. If your home has a basement, termites may be operating in secret. Make sure to check out your crawl spaces and basements. If you have pest control questions please call us.

As soon as you notice fallen trees in your yard, eliminate them. Make firewood out of the trunk and branches. You can also give it to someone else, or sell it if you want to. Don’t just let the stump rot in your yard, though. Basically, stumps are simply lifeless pieces of wood that attract termites.

Do some research on the kind of insect or rodents that are invading your home. Find out what repels them and what attracts them, every area is different we are specialists. Finding as much information about your pests will help you deal with them effectively. Call us today for a free estimate.

In order to get rid of a pest for good, you must learn everything possible about it. Know about its life cycle, what it eats, what it likes and doesn’t like, etc. The more you know about a pest, the easier it will be to devise a way to eliminate it.

Exterior lighting can attract a lot of flying pests. Don’t put exterior lighting right next to the entrance of your house. Consider using lights with an orange or yellow glow that bugs do not like as much; this will cut down the number of insects going inside your house.

The preceding article showed you some ways that you can deal with pests. You aren’t the only one who has to deal with pests. Regardless of your location, you are sure to have a few pests around. Apply the knowledge you have gained, and take control of the situation.

Carpenter Ant

Size: Large – from 1/4 inch for a worker up to 3/4 inch for a queen
Color: Black, or sometimes red and black

Description – Carpenter ants are active indoors during many months of the year, usually during the spring and summer. When ants are active in the house during late winter/early spring (February/March), the infestation (nest) is probably within the household. When carpenter ants are first seen in the spring and summer (May/June), then the nest is likely outdoors and the ants are simply coming in for food. The natural food of the ants consists of honeydew from aphids, other insects, and plant juices, but they will readily forage for water and food scraps within the house.

Habitat – Under natural conditions, carpenter ants nest in live and dead trees and in rotting logs and stumps. However, they will also construct their nests in houses, telephone poles, and other man-made wooden structures. Nests are begun in deteriorating wood which has been exposed to moisture. Often, the colony will extend its nest to adjacent, sound wood. Nests are commonly found in porch pillars and roofs, window sills, and wood in contact with soil.

Life Cycle – The colonies of carpenter ants are often long-lived. Each colony is founded by a single fertilized queen. She establishes a nesting site in a cavity in wood. She then rears her first brood of workers, feeding them salivary secretions. She does not leave the nest nor feed herself throughout this period. The workers who are reared first assume the task of gathering food with which to feed the younger larvae. As the food supply becomes more constant, the colony population grows very rapidly. A colony does not reach maturity and become capable of producing young queens and males until it contains 2,000 or more workers. It may take a colony from three to six years or more to reach this stage. Each year thereafter, the colony will continue to produce winged queens and males, which leave their nest and conduct mating flights from May through July.

Damage – Carpenter ants rarely cause structural damage to buildings, although they can cause significant damage over a period of years because nests are so long-lived. Some recent evidence indicates that they can also cause extensive damage to foam insulation.

Control – Control of carpenter ant infestations requires that the nest be found. Once this is done, the infested wood can be removed or treated chemically, and causes of moisture damage to the wood can be corrected. The best procedure is to inspect all possible locations and to select these locations on the basis of potential water exposure. Once the nest is located, control can be achieved by the use of an aerosol insecticide labeled for the purpose.

INTERESTING FACTS: Ants of the genus Camponotus are known as carpenter ants because they house their colonies in galleries they excavate in wood. Carpenter ants do not eat the wood they remove during their nest-building activities but deposit it outside entrances to the colony in small piles. The wood is used solely as a nesting site. The galleries of carpenter ants are kept smooth and clean and are not lined with moist soil as termite galleries are.

Pavement Ants

Pharaoh ants are very small yellowish ants, almost translucent, that can be a major nuisance inside a house. When they occur, there is often more than one nest, each with many egg-laying queens. They are difficult to control and should not be attempted by a homeowner. Professional pest managers should be called. Poisoned baits are the only method of properly controlling this type of ant. Sprays will actually cause the colonies to split and spread making the problem worse.

Sprays will actually cause the colonies to split and spread making the problem worse.

Odorous House Ants

Odorous house ants are brown or black. When squashed, they give off a distinct odor. The nests are found both indoors and outside and are sometimes very difficult to control. When they do take poisoned bait, it will still take time for the colony to disappear.

Field Ants

Field ants is a common name for several types of large ants that can be black, brown, yellowish, or with a red head and thorax, and a black abdomen. They often nest in tree stumps and in large mounds in fields. Sometimes they will invade and nest in buildings. They do not do any damage but they can be annoying and can bite. This ant is a beneficial predator so should be controlled only when they are becoming a nuisance.

Cornfield Ants

They are often called moisture ants and they are not normally seen indoors except when the large winged honey-colored females or the smaller dark males swarm in late summer. They live only in damp or rotting wood, the presence of these ants is an indication of moisture or wood-rot problem. Effective control requires eliminating the cause of the moisture problem and replacing the damaged wood. Spraying the winged ants with a household pesticide may provide temporary relief during the swarming season but it will not kill the colony.

Moths

Moths are insects. Adult moths have wings and fly. Most damage is done by larvae (wormlike immature moths). Common types: Indian Meal Moth larvae eat and spoil a variety of grains and other foods. Clothes Moth larvae eat some materials, especially if already damaged.

Mice

Mice are the most common rodent found in our area in houses and commercial buildings. The main species is the common house mouse, but field mice occasionally come inside in winter.

Mice are usually first noticed in the kitchen, where you may find their droppings. They tend to nibble and damage several different types of packaged foods. Mice are great climbers, and will often follow water and drain pipes as well as electrical conduit and wiring. They will use almost anything they can gnaw to build their nest such as paper, labels from jars and canned goods, fabrics, etc. Nests have been found in the bottom of boots and shoes. Sometimes, mice are suspected because of noises in the walls.

Once mice have become established, several methods are available to eliminate them. It is always helpful to eliminate clutter and to close up entry holes. Mice can come in through surprisingly small holes but these can effectively be sealed. However, especially in older structures, new entry holes can appear so a yearly inspection is a good idea. Mice often get in through poorly fitted garage doors and other such spaces. They often travel along pipe conduits and these conduits can be sealed so that there is no room for the mouse to pass.

Although it is possible to eliminate mice without a professional, it is a good idea to work with a professional who knows mouse habits and can both correct immediate problems and point out preventative measures unique to your situation. In addition, there are several methods to eliminate mice including various traps and bait stations. Each has advantages and disadvantages, and your pest control professional can work with you to choose a method that is the best fit for your situation.

Rats

Biology and Life cycle – Rats, like house mice, are mostly active at night. They have poor eyesight, but they make up for this with their keen senses of hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Rats constantly explore and learn about their environment, memorizing the locations of pathways, obstacles, food and water, shelter, and other elements in their domain. They quickly detect and tend to avoid new objects placed in a familiar environment. Thus, objects such as traps and baits often are avoided for several days or more following their initial placement. While both species exhibit this avoidance of new objects, it is usually more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats.

Both Norway and roof rats may gain entry to structures by gnawing, climbing, jumping, or swimming through sewers and entering through the toilet or broken drains. While Norway rats are more powerful swimmers, roof rats are more agile and are better climbers.

Norway and roof rats do not get along. The Norway rat is larger and the more dominant species; it will kill a roof rat in a fight. When the two species occupy the same building, Norway rats will dominate the basement and ground floors, with roof rats occupying the attic or second and third floors. Contrary to some conceptions, the two species cannot interbreed. Both species may share some of the same food resources but do not feed side-by-side. Rats may grab food and carry it off to feed elsewhere.

Rats of either species, especially young rats, can squeeze beneath a door with only a 1/2-inch gap. If the door is made of wood, the rat may gnaw to enlarge the gap, but this may not be necessary.

Norway Rats. Norway rats eat a wide variety of foods but mostly prefer cereal grains, meats, fish, nuts, and some fruits. When searching for food and water, Norway rats usually travel an area of about 100 to 150 feet in diameter; seldom do they travel any further than 300 feet from their burrows or nests. The average female Norway rat has four to six litters per year and may successfully wean 20 or more offspring annually.

Roof Rats. Like Norway rats, roof rats eat a wide variety of foods, but their food preferences are primarily fruits, nuts, berries, slugs, and snails. Roof rats are especially fond of avocados and citrus and often eat fruit that is still on the tree. When feeding on a mature orange, they make a small hole through which they completely remove the contents of the fruit, leaving only the hollowed-out rind hanging on the tree. The rind of a lemon is often eaten, leaving the flesh of the sour fruit still hanging. Their favorite habitats are attics, trees, and overgrown shrubbery or vines. Residential or industrial areas with mature landscaping provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.

Roof rats routinely travel up to 300 feet for food. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fence tops. They have an excellent sense of balance and use their long tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. They may live in trees or in attics and climb down to a food source. The average number of litters a female roof rat has per year depends on many factors but generally is three to five with from five to eight young in each litter.

DAMAGE CAUSED BY RATS
Rats consume and contaminate foodstuffs and animal feed. They also damage containers and packaging materials in which foods and feed are stored. Both species of rats cause problems by gnawing on electrical wires and wooden structures (doors, ledges, in corners, and in wall material) and tearing up insulation in walls and ceilings for nesting.

Norway rats may undermine building foundations and slabs with their burrowing activities. They may also gnaw on all types of materials, including soft metals such as copper and lead as well as plastic and wood. If roof rats are living in the attic of a residence, they can cause considerable damage with their gnawing and nest-building activities. They also damage garden crops and ornamental plantings.

Among the diseases rats may transmit to humans or livestock are murine typhus, leptospirosis, trichinosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), and ratbite fever. Plague is a disease that can be carried by both roof and Norway rats, but it is more commonly associated with ground squirrels, chipmunks, and native wood rats.

Spiders

Spiders have eight legs and two main body parts: head and abdomen. They cannot fly. All spiders eat insects. and are pests in structures when their webs become annoying or when they bite in self-defense. Some will defend their eggs. Baby spiders look like miniature adults.

Spiders are pests for some people because of their appearance and messy webs. They are valuable predators of other pests. Often, vacuuming, good housekeeping practices, and the use of screens can eliminate their prey and thus reduce their numbers. Low humidity is also beneficial to reducing the number of spiders.

If spiders are a concern, please contact us for an inspection and possible treatment to control these pests.

Brown Recluse Spider – a spider that’s around 1 inch long including legs, and is sometimes found inside, usually in and under piles of belongings. For this reason is a good idea to wear protective clothing, such as gloves and long sleeves, and pants when cleaning out basements and other storage areas, and ductwork. Brown recluse spiders can be found in piles of wood and for this reason, care should be taken in handling firewood.

Fleas

Fleas will bite humans, dogs, and other mammals in addition to cats. There are effective flea treatments for pets, but if a household pet is treated, and the house is not treated, the fleas may become a very irritating pest for the resident humans. Professional treatment of the house, coordinated with the treatment of pets is highly recommended. Several treatments might be necessary for complete eradication.

Ticks

The dog tick is the most common tick inside human structures. Deer ticks, which are smaller carry Lyme disease.

Ticks usually come in on pets or clothing and do not usually reproduce inside. However, they can carry diseases and some people are allergic to their bites. There are effective treatments to prevent tick infestation of pets, and these should be used. Clothing and backpacks should be examined for ticks during tick season, and people should inspect themselves after walks in rural areas to make sure they haven’t picked up ticks.

Beetles

Beetles have their wings hidden beneath a covering that can be colorful.

Powder post beetles are small beetles that bore into wood and, when present in large numbers, can weaken structural wood. They make small holes in the wood, but the presence of holes does not necessarily mean there is an active infestation. Professional inspection and treatment are needed.

Old house beetles sometimes make their presence known by chewing noises that can be heard by people, especially at night. They make small holes in wood. Professional inspection and treatment are needed.

Carpet beetle larvae damage carpets and other materials. The damage is similar to that of the clothes moth, but treatment is different. Good housekeeping and frequent vacuuming are useful for prevention. Professional treatment is advised if there is a visible infestation.

Various types of small beetles infest stored grain and other dry foods such as pasta. Some also eat dried plant material. All damaged food should be put in plastic bags (to prevent spread) and discarded outside. The storage area should be cleaned thoroughly. Grain beetles often come into a house on or inside packaged food. Some grain beetles can bore through most packaging materials.

Ladybugs

Ladybugs are usually not a problem. There are several types of ladybugs, and they vary in color and number of spots. They can become a pest when they gather in large numbers inside a structure. They do no harm, but it can be frightening to see such large numbers of this “cute” bug inside a bedroom!

Bedbugs

Bedbugs have no wings and cannot fly. They are light to dark brown and up to 1/3 inch. They look a little like small ticks but have only six legs (ticks have eight). Bedbugs bite mainly at night. They feed on animal blood and the common bedbug prefers humans, but will also feed on dogs, cats, and other warm-blooded animals. Some people do not notice the bites, but other people become allergic and the bites can be itchy and cause much misery and loss of sleep. Bites can become infected, but bedbugs are not thought to carry disease. Bedbugs need professional treatment.

Batbugs

Batbugs are similar to bedbugs and will bite people. They are found in places where bats nest, and if the bats are removed from a human dwelling, they will seek new victims. Therefore, it is important to remove and treat areas where bats have nested. These pests need professional treatment, which is the same as for bedbugs.

Boxelder Bugs

Boxelder bugs are about 1/2 inch long and black with distinct red markings. They do no damage but can be very annoying when they enter a home because of the loud noise they make when attracted to lamps.

Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees look similar to bumblebees. They are large and fly slowly. They can do a lot of damage to wood.

The female drills neat round holes about the size of a dime in the wood of siding and fascia, sometimes high off the ground. Then, she drills nest galleries at a 90 deg angle to the hole, parallel to the grain of the wood. She lays eggs and provisions them with food for the hatching larvae. The galleries damage the wood, which eventually needs replacement. Females can sting, but usually do not bother people.

Male carpenter bees often buzz around the nests and dive-bomb people near the nest. Males cannot sting but can be very annoying. Their abdomens are a distinctive shiny black on the end, and their thick black legs dangle down. Females can sting but usually don’t bother people.

Carpenter bees prefer bare, somewhat damaged wood so painting wood and replacing damaged wood deters them. Professional help is recommended to get rid of carpenter bees.

Wasps

Unlike bees, wasps are predators and do valuable work by killing many pest insects. However, some are also attracted to human food and both them and their nests can be very annoying. Common wasps are paper wasps (also called umbrella wasps), mud dauber wasps, bald-faced hornets, and yellowjackets.

Earwigs

Earwigs are harmless, but these one-inch insects are scary looking because of the big pinschers on their abdomens (these are used to fend off ants that attack them from the rear). Earwigs are attracted by light and so can be a nuisance when they blunder into a house and fly around lamps. Screens, sealing doors, and windows are good prevention.

Sow Bugs

Sow bugs are small segmented crustaceans with many legs (distantly related to lobsters and shrimp). They like dampness and are found in damp debris. They sometimes come into cellars and other damp places from the outside. They do no harm, and dehumidifying can help control them. Removal of debris and mulch from around the structure can keep them from coming inside easily.

Pill Bugs

Pill bugs are similar to sow bugs but curl up into a round “pill” when touched. They can be controlled in the same way as sow bugs.

Silverfish

Silverfish are soft-bodied insects that have no wings. They live in damp places and damage paper and other stored materials and some food. Good housekeeping and prevention of dampness can help control these pests.

Bedbugs are a growing concern in North America.

A female bedbug lays 5 eggs per day and up to 500 eggs in her lifetime.
The eggs hatch in about 6-17 days and become fertile adults in about 21 days. Based on this, one bedbug can become several thousand in the course of a few months.
Once established, bedbugs can be very difficult to eliminate. They hide in tiny spaces and emerge to feed at night. Worst of all, eggs survive most conventional treatments. For this reason, new solutions have been developed, including heat treatment which we offer as one of our treatment methods.
Bedbugs can live in clothing, furniture, and suitcases and can be transported between locations for example between a hotel and your home.

Bedbugs cause psychological and physical harm by leaving itchy bites and spreading panic.

PREVENTION

If you suspect you may have had bedbugs in your hotel, on your return home place your luggage in your garage or bathroom. Bedbugs don’t like the tiled floor and will be easier to spot the bugs.
You can put all clothing in the washing machine, including those you are wearing, as soon as you return home, put on a hot wash, and tumble dry at high heat. The temperature will kill any bedbugs that may be hiding in them.
Regular Vacuuming can reduce the population of bedbugs significantly. Be sure to empty the vacuum and place it outside in the garbage immediately.
Mattress encasements – we can order and supply mattress and box spring encasements for your home. The encasements are bite-proof, and they keep bedbugs out of your mattress and box spring.
Wrap your suitcases in plastic wrap when traveling. This can prevent the transfer of bedbugs from other people’s luggage when traveling on buses or airplanes.

SIGNS OF BEDBUGS

Bites on your skin, although it is difficult to differentiate between a bedbug bite and any other insect bite.
Droppings – Evidence of dark spots staining the mattress is a sign that you have a bedbug infestation. The spots will be tiny <1mm but can be easy to notice if you have a heavy infestation.
Live Insects – Bedbugs are 4-7mm long and visible to the naked eye. Mostly spotted at night time, they feed in the few hours before dawn.
Blood – Bedbugs feed on your blood. If you notice small spots of blood on your mattress, bedsheets, or pajamas, this may be a sign that you have a bedbug infestation.
Bedbug Skin – Each bedbug molts its skin 5 times in its lifetime. These can sometimes be spotted behind your headboard and on your box spring or mattress.

IDENTIFYING BEDBUGS

Visual inspection – Our technicians are trained and experienced in visually inspecting for bedbugs. Identifying the tell-tale signs of an infestation, and distinguishing a bedbug from other bugs which are often confused with bedbugs.
Dog inspection – We have access to an excellent bedbug sniffer dog that can identify the presence of bedbugs, without needing the visual confirmation that can sometimes be hard to locate. Trained K9s can detect odors completely unnoticeable to humans. Download a copy of the preparation sheet which must be followed before the K9 team enters your home.

HOW WE TREAT

Chemical Treatment – We can provide chemical treatment to your home/apartment for bedbugs. You will need to download a preparation sheet and follow the list of requirements carefully. The closer you follow the preparation guidelines, the better chance we have of eradicating the bedbugs in as few treatments as possible.
Due to the nature of bedbugs, you will need a minimum of two chemical treatments. The second one will be booked 14 days after the first. In some cases, more treatments will be needed at 2-week intervals.
Download a copy of the datasheet for the chemical we use to treat bedbugs.
Heat Treatment – Another extremely effective way to treat bedbugs is by using heat. The Heat Assault Unit 500X can maintain an indoor temperature of 150F, which ensures that all bedbugs and their eggs are exterminated. The high efficiency of the unit allows us to treat multiple apartments at the same time.
We highly recommend our company to carry out any heat treatments; we have a great success rate with the elimination of bedbugs. We are very knowledgeable in the field and can answer any questions you may have about the process. You can contact us by calling the office.
The AGES Heat Assault system uses two trailer-mounted diesel-fired furnaces that create a redundant loop. This eliminates the possibility of system shutdowns during heat treatments. A high-efficiency pump circulates non-toxic glycol through hoses and a series of heat exchangers. There is no fire hazard and the glycol is non-toxic. The system also allows us to perform bedbug heat treatments in a significantly shorter time than our competitors. It also eliminates the need to vacate the premises for extended periods of time.
Their heat treatment unit allows us to heat areas up to 5,000 square feet at a time, and the fan system circulates the heat into all furniture and into cracks and crevices. When directed towards the walls, and the temperature is raised quickly enough, experience has shown that bedbugs will not escape through the walls and will remain in the target area.
Temperature probes are distributed throughout the affected area and monitored remotely. Once the temperature has reached 125F for over 30 minutes, all eggs, larvae, pupae, and adult insects will be killed. The room is kept up to temperature for approximately 3 hours to allow heat to penetrate the furniture and walls.

It is utilized for the control of pests in buildings, soil, grain, and produce, and is also used during the processing of goods to be imported or exported to prevent the transfer of exotic organisms.

There are different types of fumigation services, and the one you should choose will depend on the type of infestation and the extent of the problem. In general terms, there are two types of fumigation; either by poisonous gas, or pesticides. Because the most commonly used fumigants are toxic to all forms of life, it is possible to control most pests using this one treatment method. It is also the most rapid form of treatment method, as compared to the normal baiting and residual spraying method.

Whether its ants in your cupboards, or rats on the roof of your house, you may need to call a pest control services company to eliminate the problem. When pests take over business premises such as restaurants or food storage companies, they can be a health hazard. In such cases, pest fumigation may be the only solution. Cockroaches are common culprits, and they are not fussy about what habitat they encroach upon. Apparently, there is only one type of food that a cockroach will not eat. Its cucumber! Everything else is on the menu. Cockroaches are found in homes and businesses, and they are a real menace. They crawl in, fly in, eat anything and everything they can find and, of course, they breed. Cockroaches, if left unchecked, can cause health problems to humans. Food poisoning has also been linked to pest infestations, particularly cockroaches. They secrete allergens which can be very dangerous for people who suffer from respiratory problems.

There are however other pests that cause destruction in a home or business premises. These include fleas, bees, wasps, bed bugs, spiders, rodents, and termites. If the pest control company cannot solve the problem with chemical sprays, pest fumigation may be recommended. Pest fumigation is a pest control method that fills an entire building with fumigants that will either poison or suffocate the pests inside. It is often the only way to get rid of termites and wood-boring insects that are causing extensive damage to wooden areas in a home or factory. The building to be fumigated is first completely covered with large tarpaulins or tents. The fumigant is then released inside the building. The building will remain covered for a certain period of time. This allows the fumigant to penetrate all areas and kill the pests. After this, the building is ventilated so that the poison can disperse. It will then be safe for humans to re-enter the premises. The reason for the tarpaulins is to prevent the fumigant from escaping and causing potential harm to neighboring people/buildings. The pest fumigation process can take up to a week to complete, depending on the level of infestation and the size of the building. Methyl bromide was the most commonly used fumigant until it was banned because it harms the ozone layer. Present-day fumigants include phosphine, chloropicrin, hydrogen cyanide, methyl isocyanate, iodoform, sulfuryl fluoride, and iodoform. A popular choice among many pest control services is sulfuryl fluoride. Sulfuryl fluoride has the ability to kill pests at any stage of their lives, including eggs. It does not harm the ozone layer and it is not associated with the dangers of phosphine. Sulfuryl fluoride is used widely as a pest fumigant to control dry wood termites that thrive in warm climates. It is also effective for the eradication of bark beetles, powder post beetles, rodents, and bed bugs. Pest fumigation is a dangerous operation. It must be carried out by competent personnel or registered pest control companies that are in possession of the correct certification that allows them to perform pest fumigation operations.

Fumigation is the most commonly used method for pest control and elimination. It involves the use of pesticides or pest retardants in gaseous form, referred to as fumigants, to poison pests in a residential area, business complex, or public space that has been infested. Fumigation is also used in agriculture or grain produce to prevent the soil from being infected or during the import and export of goods to get rid of insects, worms, and organisms that might be transported from place to place. While excessive use of chemicals in any form is to be avoided because it may harm human life or structural buildings, the process is not entirely effective in pest elimination, it merely prevents the pests from making their presence once again in the same area. The fumigation process is usually done in a phased manner. As a first step, the entire area that needs fumigation is sealed off or covered. Next, the area is fumigated, i. e. the chemicals are released in the covered space which may be a home, an office, a warehouse or storage complex, underground cellar, ship cargo containers, etc. In the third phase, the fumigant is allowed time to completely fill the enclosed space and kill the pest itself (wood borers, termites) or pest infestations (eggs, larvae). Finally, the area is ventilated with fresh air and sunlight so that no trace of the chemical or gas is left behind. Once this process is completed and a thorough inspection is done, the area is certified pest-free.

Chemicals used in fumigation: Until the Montreal Protocol, an international treaty signed in the late 1980s to protect the Ozone layer of the atmosphere from depletion, was signed the random use of many chemicals was widespread. The widely used fumigant at the time was Methyl Bromide; its production and use were restricted later. The list of fumigants in use includes Formaldehyde Phosphine Chloropicrin Sulfuryl Fluoride Methyl Isocyanate Hydrogen Cyanide.

Methods of fumigation: Broadly, fumigation methods can be categorized into surface and sub-surface. Surface treatments refer to fumigation done on exposed surface areas. Sub-surface refers to treatments where gases or chemicals have to be applied to spaces like soil, cargo containers, storage tanks, etc. Sub-surface fumigation methods are tubing, trenched, short probe, long probe, and combination recirculation. The methods adopted for surface fumigation depend greatly on the situation, circumstance, and the nature of pests and pesticides. For homes, the Tenting Method is used, where a rubber tent is placed to seal off the area. In larger structures like entire buildings, other options that take into account the size of the building and infestation come into play. Fumigants are pesticides that are volatile and exert their toxic action as poisonous gases in an enclosed space. Fumigation is a versatile technique that can be applied in a wide range of situations. It should be undertaken only when management is satisfied that a need to carry out pest control exists, that fumigation is the appropriate process and that the fumigation may be safely and effectively carried out. Fumigation of commodities in the export trade is mandatory for quarantine or contractual reasons.

Bedbug control is necessary for a bedbug infestation. Bedbugs are commonly found in the bed structure and beddings, though occasionally they may spread to other surrounding areas and furniture. They are most commonly found within the frame of the bed, the headboard, the mattress piping, the seams and tags of the mattress, and within the mattress itself. Bedbugs may come from traveling to other countries or areas and staying in bedbug-infested accommodations. You may also get an infestation from buying used beddings and mattresses that will have these pests.

Signs Of A Bedbug Infestation
Signs you have bedbugs include live bedbugs crawling on the bed or beddings, bite marks on your skin that are itchy and you may also see blood marks on your beddings that come from the bedbugs when you crush them mistakenly while you sleep. Other signs of a bedbug infestation may be the appearance of small dark spots similar to what would be made with a marker pen and the presence of bedbug eggs and eggshells which are white in color and are about a millimeter in size. If you suspect that you may have a bedbug infestation, these are the signs that you can look out for so that you can take the appropriate action. The first thing to do when you find that you have an infestation is to take some form of bedbug control. This means that you have to remove the beddings, mattresses, bed frames, and quarantine these things in one room, if possible, to stop the spread of the bedbugs.

Methods of Bedbug Control
There are different methods that can be used for bedbug control such as chemical methods where a chemical is used to eliminate the bedbugs, non-chemical methods where you use extreme temperatures, either hot or cold, to kill the bedbugs and there are inorganic substances such as diatomaceous earth which are used to kill the bedbugs. Chemical methods of bedbug control are often pesticides in aerosol, powder, or liquid form. The advantage of using this method is that it is fast and easy to use as you just spray or spread the pesticide where necessary. However, the downside of these is that bedbugs have increasingly become resistant to some strains of chemical pesticides which have no effect on them which means you may still have a bedbug problem and it increases the chances of the bedbugs spreading to other areas and furniture in the room. The benefits of using extreme temperatures such as extreme heat or cold are that it is cost-effective and you can do it yourself without calling a professional. However, the disadvantage is that this method of bedbug control takes time because it is recommended that if you are using cold temperatures to get rid of bedbugs, you leave the room with the infestation in cold temperatures for at least four days so that all the bedbugs and bedbug eggs are killed. If you find that you have a bedbug infestation, it is best to call a professional who will use a combination of methods that will ensure that the bedbugs in your home are eliminated totally. A professional exterminator will explain to you the methods that are available and you can discuss those that are acceptable to you. For example, if you are averse to using chemical pesticides because of the presence of children or pets in your home, your exterminator should be able to use other alternatives. The best way to carry out bedbug control is to use a combination of methods. Your elimination technician will work with you to come up with an extermination solution that is acceptable to you and will get rid of the bedbugs permanently. Sometimes follow-up visits may be required especially if not all the bedbugs were eliminated in the first visit.

How To Choose A Bedbug Control Company
When choosing a company that will help you deal with your bedbug problem it is best to go for a company that uses multiple methods such as washing all the infected beddings with very hot water then using a dryer with at least temperatures of 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees centigrade) to kill the bedbugs. There may be additional treatments for bedbug control such as applying inorganic materials such as diatomaceous earth which dehydrates the bedbugs when it comes into contact with them thus killing them, cedar oil, silica gel, and boric acid which also are effective products that are not chemical-based. These materials are specially placed in the crevices and any cracks of the furniture and walls of the room to ensure that all the bedbugs are thoroughly eliminated. You may also opt to use steam that will be applied on the bed and other furniture so that the bedbugs are killed by the heat or treatments based on cold. Your technician will be able to advise you on the best method of bedbug control to use depending on the magnitude and the intensity of the bedbug infestation in your home. This means that it is best for the technician to carry out an inspection first to determine the level of the infestation. From these, you will be able to receive a quote on the work that will be done while discussing the treatment methods available to you and which ones will work best for your situation. It is also best to contact a company that will provide follow-up treatments and free inspection either for free or at minimal cost until the bedbug problem is thoroughly eliminated.
