Ants are the number one pest problem in the country. Ant control can be difficult, but there are some things you should know about how ants’ behaviour can lead to big headaches for you and your home:
Bed bugs became relatively scarce during the latter part of the 20th century, but their populations have resurged in recent years, particularly throughout parts of North America, Europe, and Australia.
Bites can leave itchy, bloody welts on the skin and can cause allergic reactions, such as severe itching.
Cockroaches can wreak havoc on your home. To win the war in cockroach control, here’s what you should know:
Entry: Cockroaches can enter your home in many different ways, from the outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes.
We even bring them in on products like grocery bags, boxes, purses and on our person!
Ideal environment: Your home is an ideal breeding ground most species of cockroaches.
With plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites, they can remain active all year round.
Reproduction: Cockroaches reproduce quickly. For every one you see there can be many, many more hiding and multiplying behind your walls.
Evasiveness: Because cockroaches are nocturnal, if you’ve seen one, you probably haven’t seen them all.
The few cockroaches you see by day could mean they were likely forced out by overcrowding; a possible sign of severe infestation.
Allergies/Asthma: The dust created by cast-off cockroach skins, dead bodies and droppings can aggravate allergies, especially in children and sensitive individuals.
Do-it-yourself ineffectiveness: Cockroaches are better at hiding than you are at finding them, and their eggs are naturally protected from insecticides.
Without special equipment, materials and know-how, cockroach control can be a losing battle.
Carpet Beetles can be brought in on cut flowers or antique items such as natural fibbers carpeting, clothes, hatboxes, etc. They can multiply rapidly in the favourable conditions of your home.
Flies are not only annoying, they can also carry harmful bacteria that they pick up from decaying materials and spread to any uncovered foods.
More than 100 pathogens are associated with the house fly including: Salmonella, Staphylococcus, E. coli and Shigella.
These pathogens can cause disease in humans and animals, including: typhoid fever, cholera, bacillary dysentery, hepatitis, ophthalmia, polio, tuberculosis and infantile diarrhea.
Sanitation is critical to controlling these pests, but accurate identification is essential for successful fly control.
Here are some other things you should know about flies and fly control:
PHORID FLIES: Phorid flies, (family Phoridae) also known as humpbacked flies, are small and very much resemble fruit flies in appearance. Click on the link for a useful PDF or email and we will be happy to send..
Rodents’ instincts make them difficult to control, and they present a serious menace to your home.
If you’re in need of rodent control services, here’s what you should know about these pests:
Instincts: Rats are instinctively wary of rat control measures such as traps and bait, and colonize in attics, burrows, under concrete and porches, in wall voids and other hard to reach places.
Disease: Rats can harbor and transmit a number of serious diseases. They can also introduce disease-carrying parasites such as fleas, lice and ticks into your home.
Access: They invade your home seeking food, water and warmth. Without mouse control intervention, one pair of mice may produce 200 offspring in four months.
Contamination: Each mouse can contaminate much more food than it eats.
Capable of thriving in most climates, silverfish prefer to dwell in dark, damp areas such as basements, roof voids, kitchens and bathrooms.
They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing. Commonly found in stored boxes in garages and sheds. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches.
Cellulose, shampoos, glue in books, linen, silk and dead insects may be food sources. Some experts classify silverfish as most destructive pest of stored food.
Have been found in un-opened food packages.
Including redback; huntsman and black house spiders, invade your home through windows and doors and can also be carried in on firewood.
They can cause unsightly cobwebs and a few species have bites that can be painful and sometimes require medical attention.
Some spiders like moisture and are found in basements, crawl spaces and other damp parts of buildings.
Others like dry, warm areas such as subfloor air vents, upper corners of rooms and roof voids and like to hide in dark areas.
Stinging pests, such as bees and wasps, can dwell in gardens or shrubbery and can build nests in the ground, in trees and shrubs and in wall voids.
Biting pests, such as fleas and ticks are most commonly carried into your home by your pets.
Pantry pests, such as beetles and weevils, can get into and contaminate dry goods like flour, rice, beans and dried fruit.
