Avoiding Summer Pests

Category : Pest Control

Summer is the perfect time for outdoor activities with family and friends; like hiking, camping, playing at the park and swimming etc. Unfortunately, summer also provides an excellent environment for thousands of species of insects to thrive and multiply, which often times can put a damper on the fun summer activities that you have planned. No one wants to be bit or stung by mosquitoes, ants and black legged ticks while out hiking or camping, but the fact is that many pests thrive in the summer. These pests aren’t just annoying – they can transmit dangerous diseases too!

Integrated Pest Management

Integrated pest management (IPM), also known as Integrated Pest Control (IPC) is a broad-based approach that integrates practices for economic control of pests. IPM aims to suppress pest populations below the economic injury level (EIL). The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation defines IPM as “the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms.Entomologists and ecologists have urged the adoption of IPM pest control since the 1970s.IPM allows for safer pest control.[clarification needed] This includes managing insects, plant pathogens and

Termite Pest Control Philippines.

Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below), but are now accepted as the infraorder Isoptera, of the cockroach order Blattodea.[1][2] While termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as “white ants”, they are for practical purposes unrelated to the ants.
Like ants, and some bees and wasps—which are all placed in the separate order Hymenoptera—termites divide labor among castes, produce overlapping generations and take care of young collectively. Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung, and about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species (about 3,106 taxonomically known) are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests. Termites are major detritivores, particularly in the subtropical and tropical regions, and their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.

As eusocial insects, termites live in colonies that, at maturity, number from several hundred to several million individuals. Colonies use decentralised, self-organised systems of activity guided by swarm intelligence which exploit food sources and environments unavailable to any single insect acting alone. A typical colony contains nymphs (semimature young), workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both sexes, sometimes containing several egg-laying queens.

Bee Exterminator Expert

Bees in Your Yard

Finding bees in your garden or backyard is not necessarily reason to panic. Bees can travel long distances in their search for food. If there are just a few around, it’s likely that the hive or colony is quite a distance away, and you will probably not need to worry about bee extermination just yet. But keep an eye on the situation, as sometimes the first few bees are “scouts” who are scoping out a location for their new colony.

Bees Near Your Home
Bees clustering close to your home can be a red flag. Bees establish colonies in dark, cavernous places where they build complex nests. These homes of up to 60,000 individuals are usually established inside trees, but if they can get in through a crack or gap, that cavern could be within your exterior walls. Unlike yellow jacket hives, which only last one year, honey bee colonies are permanent. If you find honey bees entering and exiting a hole in your wall or in the eaves of your home, it’s time to call a bee extermination professional.

The Steps of Bee Removal
Eliminating a bee problem is more complicated than just spraying a little pesticide. In order to get rid of bees and keep them away, your bee removal professional should take the following steps:

1. Locating and killing the bees themselves. This usually involves targeted chemical spraying by your bee removal professional. 2. Removing the dead bees, honeycombs, or hives, and any honey inside the home. This is important because if left there, the sweetness of the honey and honeycombs will attract mice, flies, and other pests. 3. Sealing up spaces. By caulking cracks and cleaning thoroughly, a bee extermination expert can see to it that the bee problem doesn’t surface again.

Special Bee Extermination Considerations
The most important thing you can do to prevent bee problems is to keep from attracting bees. Garbage bins should be covered tightly so that bees aren’t attracted to the smell of sweet rubbish, such as soda cans, rotting fruit and so on. To keep from giving them shelter, fill all cracks and holes in the walls and eaves of your house, and make sure screens are tight.

It’s nearly impossible to tell “killer” Africanized honey bees from “regular” European honey bees. The main difference is that they are more temperamental, and defend their colonies more intensely and with less provocation. This makes it more important than ever to find a qualified, experienced bee extermination expert to deal with your bee removal.

Allergic reactions to bee stings can be quite serious. Symptoms range from itching and swelling to severe reactions such as difficulty breathing and loss of consciousness. Homeowners with children should be especially careful when it comes to bee removal.

The Importance of Pest Prevention

Category : Pest Control

When you wake to a cockroach scurrying under the door or come home to a line of ants parading through the kitchen, the need for pest control is evident. But what about those bugs and insects that make their way into your home unnoticed? In this article, we will explore the importance of preventing Huntersville pests, rather than having to treat the problem later.

What pests are likely to take up residence in my home?
In Huntersville, common household pests include anything from the brown-banded cockroach to the more threatening brown recluse spider. While the level of threat varies among these different species, you probably don’t want your family exposed to anything of the sort. Professional pest control technicians can make sure you’re home is well-protected.

Why is preventive pest control important?
Pest prevention in Huntersville is crucial to the health and wellness of your family. Known to carry harmful bacteria that can cause illnesses, pests can transmit diseases by way of contact with anything from your food supply to your toothbrush. Since they don’t often leave physical evidence behind, you might not even realize your home is infested until you have already been exposed to any of pathogens that trigger asthmatic reactions or illnesses like Salmonella or E. Coli.

What about DIY pest control?
When it comes to treating your home for pests, it’s important to hire a professional to make sure you are getting the safest, most effective solution. Storebought formulas can be accidentally overapplied, putting your family at risk of unnecessary chemical exposure. Many pest control companies provide reduced-risk, organic options. However, in addition to using the help of a professional, there are several things you can do to prevent pest problems in your home:

  • Seal cracks and crevices in exterior walls to prevent pest entry.
  • Add drain covers to your sinks and showers.
  • Screen your windows as an added barrier from the outdoors.
  • Trim back shrubbery and trees from the exterior of your home.
  • If you are interested in learning more about preventive pest control, or would like to schedule your free same-day inspection, go ahead and give us a call!

Cockroach Control Treatment

Category : Pest Control

The German cockroach is one of the most common roaches found in apartment houses, restaurants, and hotels. German cockroaches (eggs included), are “brought in”, usually on man’s belongings, luggage, boxes or packages.

All it takes is bringing in one egg capsule, six months later you have an infestation.

German Roach Control & Treatments
German Roaches & Sanitation
When beginning your German roach control program, sanitation is one of the first things to consider. German roaches only need a small amount of food to sustain them.

Remove indoor trash or keep them emptied.
Keep trash dumpsters clean.
Make sure food is not left in sink stainers and frequently run the garbage disposal.
Keep dishes clean, no residue of food remaining.
All kitchen appliances (microwaves, toasters, ovens, refrigerators and stoves) should be maintained in a clean condition so that it is food free and grease free.
All pet food needs to be picked up.
No food left out.
Sweeping or vacuuming of any food particles or crumbs.
Clean any crumbs or food particles in your kitchen cabinets.
Inspection : Look for Evidence
When inspecting for German cockroaches, thoroughness is very important. It is important to place the insecticides as close to their runways and harborages as possible. Their excrement looks like black pepper.

A flashlight would be a handy tool to check the following places.

Cracks and Crevices
Behind and under refrigerators
Behind and under stoves
Behind and under microwavesa and toasters
Under tops of tables
Behind and under sinks
Cabinets-corners and cracks and crevices
Motors of refrigerators and soft drink dispensing machines
Switchboxes and electical outlets
Under and behind cafeteria counters and soda fountains
Cash registers
Telephones
Vegetable bins
Recycling bins
Meat counters and check-out stands
Meat cutting blocks
Anywhere else conditions are favorable.
Every situation may be different, inspect all places with favorable conditions

What causes leptospirosis?

Category : Pest Control

rat leptosThe cause of leptospirosis is bacteria, Leptospira interrogans, a Gram-negative spirochete (spiral-shaped bacteria). The bacteria infect many types of animals (many wild animals, rodents, dogs, cats, pigs, horses, cattle, for example) that subsequently contaminate water, soil, and crops when they urinate because the bacteria are present in urine. The bacteria then infect humans when they invade through breaks in the skin or mucus membranes or when people ingest them. The bacteria multiply in the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system. Person-to-person transfer of this disease is rare.

What are risk factors for leptospirosis?

Risk factors include occupations that expose people to farm animals, wild animals, and to contaminated water and soil (farmers, slaughterhouse workers, veterinarians, miners, military personnel, disaster workers and victims, for example). People who participate in outdoor activities like camping or kayaking are also at higher risk for infection. Any exposure to sewage or animal waste increases risk of getting leptospirosis

What are leptospirosis symptoms and signs?

Unfortunately, the symptoms and signs of leptospirosis are variable and are similar to those seen in many other diseases (dengue fever, hantavirus, brucellosis, malaria, and others). Symptoms can arise about two days to four weeks after exposure to the bacteria. Although some people have no symptoms, others may exhibit one or more of the following: high fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, jaundice, rash, and reddish eyes. These symptoms usually occur in the first phase of the infection, and when present, they often occur abruptly. Some patients resolve their symptoms and do not progress to the second phase; others may seem to briefly recover but relapse with more severe symptoms and organ damage. This is the second phase of leptospirosis, called Weil’s disease. If it’s not treated, it may not resolve for several months. The death rate is about 1%-5%.

Dengue Prevention Tips

Category : Pest Control

It’s important to prevent mosquitoes from breeding both inside and outside your home.



Inside the home, disease-causing mosquitoes commonly breed in ornamental and other containers, plant pot trays and plates, and canvas sheets/plastic sheets. Outside the home, mosquitoes can breed in perimeter drains, gully traps and discarded containers.

“It’s important to take precautions inside and outside your home to prevent mosquito breeding and contribute to dengue prevention.

 

You can take the following precautions to protect your home from mosquitoes:

Daily

Use insecticide sprays in dark corners (under the bed, sofa and behind curtains) and burn repellent oils inside your home
Turn over all water storage containers when empty and store them under a shelter
Cover bamboo pole holders when not in use
Loosen soil in potted plants to prevent accumulation of stagnant water on surface

Alternate days

Change water in vases/bowls
Remove water from flower/plant pot plates
Weekly

Clear fallen leaves and stagnant water in scupper drains and in the garden
Clear any stagnant water in air cooler units

Monthly

Clear fallen leaves and other blockages in roof gutters
Use sand granular insecticide in gully traps and roof gutters

Rodent Prevention

Category : Pest Control

If you are trying hard to clean your attic of the army of rodents, then it’s time that you think about getting some professional help through a good rodent prevention company. Rodent prevention is not just a one line command, which requires only one line of instructions to be followed seriously to stop attic rodents. There is more to that. It’s actually a step by step process that needs to be done strategically to get the desired results.

Disappointing results from incomplete cleaning

Suppose you clear you attic off the rodents, and expect to get no more rodents inside in future. You will be utterly disappointed with the results, as all your cleaning efforts will go to vain, once a new family of rodents infests the attic once again. And this is a result of leftovers of the earlier infestation. You will need to stop attic rodents by cleaning the attic off all the remnants of the last infestation, stool and urine of rodents, any carcasses if present.

 

The role of a good rodent prevention company

A good rodent prevention company would thus do the job of cleaning in a well protected, safe method in a stepwise manner.

  • They will clean the attic of rodents.
  • They will clean all rodent feces, urine, carcasses, and food leftovers.
  • They will clean the place of all molds and rots that may invite other rodents.
  • They will find all opening in the attic and the house and will seal them such that no more rodents can make their way in.

This way they will stop attic rodents, and because of their systematic rodent prevention methods. They abide by all safety laws and tips to keep their men safe from germs and diseases, and you get such service only when you get a professional rodent prevention company service.

How to get professional help

To get professional rodent prevention in your locality, you should knock your friends and relatives to get references. You should also check websites and classifieds to get more knowledge. On getting info about a good company, you may contact them for rodent prevention by requesting a quote from them.

Your house location, size of attic, age of home all will affect the package you will have to pay to the company. Once you get your attic cleaned by a full professional team, you will never have the problem of another attack by rodents.
