Insects and Spiders
AntsAnts are not easy to control. There are some things you should know about ants, which cause them to be a much bigger problem than you might have originally thought.
SpidersThe ever-reliable Mazda is making the news again, but not for the reasons you might think. Apparently, spiders love the smell of gas in the Mazda brand of cars. The spider in question is the yellow sac spider. They are attracted to hydrocarbons in the car’s fuel system.
TermitesAllowing for inter-breeding of the species. Scientists have studied the resulting hybrid termites, noting that the brood is twice as large as the parent species and demonstrates increased vigor...
Bed bugsBed bugs are one of the worst infestations you can have. These pesky pests feed on blood, and can live up to a year without a meal. They reproduce quickly, and hide away for so long, that by the time you notice you’re infested, it’s almost too late.
FleasResidents with pets are required to provide a non-refundable pet deposit to cover any damage and clean up associated with the pet when the tenant vacates. While pets are considered family members, their fleas are not. Fleas can be very difficult to get rid of if they aren’t treated regularly and properly.
CockroachesA study conducted by a team from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Northwestern University, revealed that pest allergens (mouse and cockroach) can impact children with asthma. According to the study, Anna B.Fishbein, MD, MSci and her team evaluated 711 asthma patients. The team accounted for other contributing factors such as obesity, poverty, and smoking during pregnancy, in search of data relevant to cockroach or mouse sensitization.
SilverfishThe most pernicious museum and storage pest include carpet beetles, silverfish, moths, and termites. Such a wide range of pests can force a wider range of treatment attempts–effective enough to kill off both eggs, larvae, and adults while also not damaging the displays or valuables involved. This can include freezing, environmental regulation, and poisoning displays with insecticides that don’t impair the integrity of the museum displays themselves.
BeesHoney bees in particular can build a nest deep inside a wall or in a dark basement. Sometimes the nests go unnoticed until the homeowner finds honey dripping down the wall. In extreme cases like this, the homeowner will need to employ a professional beekeeper to come and remove the hive and a contractor to reconstruct any damage to the home. Honey bees make a tremendous positive impact on our environment and agriculture. Dealing with honey bees is especially important,because since 2000, this insect has been disappearing.
WaspsPaper wasps build the gray colored single structure cones you typically find under the soffit or along the outside of the home.
TicksTicks have long been the bane of pet owners across the country. In warmer weather, ticks abound and can move from being a serious nuisance to a true hazard to the health of both the people and pets within a home. The main difficulty in treating tick infestations is simply finding where they are hiding in order to eradicate them. The Brown Dog Tick is a particular pest that scientists label “cryptobiotic,” meaning
MosquitoesIn the past, people have complained about feeling targeted by mosquitoes, suffering from dozens (if not hundreds) of bites in an evening while friends or family go relatively untouched by the blood-sucking pests.
FliesFlies are found pretty much everywhere, but an excessive amount of flies is a sign of a problem. Potential tenants know that flies are attracted to old food, garbage, and feces, so a fly problem is a sign of bigger problems.
BeetlesColorado potato beetles are notorious for quickly developing resistance (if not outright immunity) to common pesticides. If you use a main pesticide for your garden or crops, be sure to
Scorpions"Think you have to live with Scorpions and bugs in the desert? Listen to Toni’s story of how she lives pest free now in the desert. “It’s priceless!”
HornetsHave you ever heard the term social butterfly? Well, butterflies aren’t the only social insects, wasps and bees are known to form colonies or elaborate nests and work in groups. The biggest culprits are honey bees, yellow jackets and bumble bees, along with troublesome hornets and paper wasps.
Yellow JacketsYellow jackets are one of the most common social wasps you will find around a home. Before you notice them, their
MothsMoths and termites remain the top threats to museums and stored valuables to this day, but there are steps you can take to protect yourself from their ravenous hunger.
Stink BugsBrown marmorated stink bugs were first discovered in the U.S. in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1998. It is assumed the bugs arrived from China or Japan, where they are apparently a significant problem. Not much time passed after their arrival to the U.S. before they began to reproduce in abundance, and today they are found in at least 36 states.
MitesRodents and birds in your chimney may seem like a harmless problem, but they can definitely introduce ticks, mites, fleas, and other undesirable infestations to your home. When the fireplace is not in use, be sure to keep the flue closed so nothing can get in. Open it only when you need ventilation for a fire. This not only protects your home from pests, but also will reduce the amount of cold air that gets into the house. You may also want to invest in a chimney cap that seals the top of the chimney and reduces the types of pests that could potentially invade.
RodentsYour first service is a comprehensive inside and outside service designed to flush ADULT pests from your home and begin to establish a barrier. Residential homes receive constant pressure from local pest populations, because insects and rodents need shelter, moisture, and food, which are all found in abundance around a home.
MiceNumerous rodent species are driven indoor to survive the plummeting temperatures. Rats and mice are among these, and even though mice might be a little more visually appealing than rat, they still can post a hazard to family health and comfort.
RatsJimmy Buffet. But there is a new group in town and they aren’t so welcome. Gambian Pouch rats have taken over Grassy Key.
BatsWildlife, including rabbits, squirrels, bats, birds, snakes, raccoons, skunks, and many more can infest your homes and cause an array of problems. It goes without saying, but these pests provide a different kind of issue than other pests do.
Squirrels– These lesser-used spaces can easily become stockpiles for junk or dusty paraphernalia. The general lack of human activity makes the space inviting for any number of pests, including squirrels and raccoons that could chew and damage the wiring in your home.
RaccoonsHeavy ice and snow can cause major roof damage, leaving numerous gaps and holes pests can use to invade a property. This can be a factor for larger pests as well, such as squirrels and raccoons, which can nest in attics or dig into a home’s insulation or wiring (causing potential fire hazards).
SnakesAll of these risk exposing themselves to a number of pest threats, not only negatively impacting their focus and productivity but their health as well. Aside from smaller animal pests such as venomous snakes, other pest exposure can come from rodents and insects as well.
