SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE SWARM SEASON

  Termites have been known to cause more than 5 billion dollars worth of property damage in the United States every year.  As a homeowner, you want to protect your home against any type of termite damage.

   Concerned homeowners should contact a professional pest control company to perform regular inspections, to determine where and how the termites might be entering your home, and to ensure properties remain free from any further damage in which termites can cause.

   Subterranean termite colonies can contain as many as one (1) million or more members and expand their colonies during swarming.

  An indication of Subterranean termite infestation includes mud, grass, or tunnels in the wood.

 

    The following areas and conditions should be inspected for Subterranean termites:

  • Areas with excessive moisture, including leaking pipes or faucets and water damage of any kind
  • Attics
  • Crawl spaces – (Areas underneath your house that are raised)
  • Expansion joints or cracks in the foundation; and
  • Exterior perimeter and roof line.

MISTAKEN PEST IDENTITIES

    Many customers seem to have their own names for different kinds of “household pests”, based on what they’ve heard over the years from family or friends.  As a result, Pest Control Companies have to read between the lines, in order to properly identify the pest that they’re trying to describe over the phone.

    The most common household pest questions are in reference too……

 

 

   ORIENTAL COCKROACH “aka” WATER BUG

 

 

 

   AMERICAN COCKROACH “aka” PALMETO BUGS …. (common name in the South)

 

  

 

   PILL BUGS or SOWBUGS “aka” ROLLY POLLIES 

 

 

 

    HOUSEHOLD ANT “aka” PISS ANTS(the owner’s favorite term)

 

 

  

 

   POTATO BUG “aka“ JERUSALEM CRICKET
 

 

    These are just a few of the household pests we have to identify on a daily basis.  As always, a thorough inspection of the house and property is the best way to approach the problem.

 ****  IF YOU HAVE AN UNUSUAL NAME FOR THE COMMON HOUSEHOLD PEST….. LEAVE US A COMMENT AND WHAT YOU CALL CERTAIN PESTS.

JUST ONE MORE BITE

INSECT BITES CAN BE ALARMING, IF NOT SOMETIMES A DEADLY OCCURANCE

A bite or sting can injure skin or cause a physiologic response specific to the species.  Reactions can range from no visible response to life-threatening transmissions of diseases.

Complications, such as Anaphylaxsis shock, can cause allergic reactions that may cause death.  Anaphylaxis generally results in an itchy rash, throat swelling, and low blood pressure.

  SOME COMMON INSECT BITE REACTIONS ARE:

 

Black Widow Spider – A dull numbing  pan, muscle cramps, vertigo and chills.

   Bee or Wasp Sting – Pain and itching, weak, dizzy, and throat swelling.

    Fire Ant Bites or Stings – Red irritated skin with pustules.

     Brown Recluse Spider – Blisters, blue ring around the bite area and joint pain.

               Tick Bites – Expanding skin lesions and a bulls-eye rash.

 

Remedies can range from an ice pack or surgery.  As with any medical problem, always get a medical professional’s diagnosis before treating.  Identifying the insect is always helpful, but the best course of action is to see a physician.
