Bulwark Pest Control On Episode of A&E’s “Flipping Vegas”

Bulwark Exterminating recently got a call came from the producers of A&E’s hit show “Flipping Vegas,” and were happy to help out with a very dangerous problem.

“Flipping Vegas” follows a team of real estate investors, as they buy properties below market value, fix them up, and then hopefully sell them for a profit. During this process, it’s not uncommon to run into a few unforeseen problems.

The “Flipping Vegas” team purchases an abandoned home on the outskirts of Las Vegas that comes complete with unwelcome houseguests… Very poisonous bark scorpions! The property was crawling with them! With the help of Bulwark Pest Control’s experienced Las Vegas exterminators; and their unparalleled scorpion truck service, the team was quickly able to solve the scorpion problem and resell the once scorpion infested home for a profit.

The “Flipping Vegas” Ugly Coyote House episode was the fourth episode of the show’s second season. It originally aired on A&E January 5, 2013. To catch a scheduled rebroadcast of the episode, check times here.

A&E should also have the episode available to watch online shortly:

“Flipping Vegas” On A&E

Since the housing bubble burst in 2008, the Las Vegas housing market has been flooded with unsold and foreclosed properties. Since then, Sin City has been left with thousands of empty homes in desperate need of a makeover to entice buyers. That is where the show “Flipping Vegas” comes in.

“Flipping Vegas” follows Scott Yancey and his team of interior designers, project managers, and real estate agents on their quest to renovate rundown homes and sell them for a profit. Despite all the drama and unforeseen roadblocks (like scorpions), the team always finishes what they start – leaving behind a beautiful new home, and excited new homeowners.

The show is currently on it’s second season, and is A&E’s most watched reality television program.

Las Vegas Scorpions

Each year millions of visitors flock to the entertainment capital of the World because of Las Vegas’ daytime family friendly attractions and it’s nighttime entertainment. Tourists aren’t the only visitors to make their presence known in Sin City. Las Vegas, NV is also home to scorpions. Some unfortunate neighborhoods, like the one featured in the “Flipping Out” episode, have many of them.

Las Vegas scorpion problems are on the rise. The scary creepy crawlers have invaded the valley in large numbers recently. It’s not unusual, given that the city is in a desert, to see one once in a while. But lately there have been reports of people finding many scorpions in their garages, homes and beds.

Scorpions can be very dangerous with their venomous stings. One of the most venomous scorpions in the country, the bark scorpion, happens to found all around the Las Vegas valley. A bark scorpion sting may only cause a small reaction in adults, but children or seniors could suffer a much more serious reaction if stung; including possible death.

Bed Bugs: What Are They and How Do You Control Them?

What happens if you have a bed-bug infestation? Bed bugs in a home can bring about a number of health conditions, including allergies, skin rashes and even psychological effects. If bitten, you may experience symptoms on your skin such as itching and redness. Bed bugs feed on blood, usually that of animals, but they will move on to humans if it is the only blood available. Bed lice are attracted by carbon dioxide, warmth and certain chemicals and tend to live longer in colder temperatures.

How Do They Spread?

Your house can become infected with bed bugs for various reasons. They can be carried on other people’s clothes, luggage or infested pets. If a nearby house or flat is infested, the bed bugs can move through walls or false ceilings. Some animals, such as bats and birds, can also bring them into buildings. The source of infestations also includes eggs which may have been laid in the seams of clothing.

How Can I Detect Them?

Bed bugs are usually nocturnal so it can be difficult to spot them. They tend to nest in dark areas and often lay thousands of eggs in the seams of fabrics. Signs that you may have a bed-bug infestation include bites on the body, droppings similar in appearance to sand, spots of blood on bed sheets and patches of skin which they have shed (this is actually an exoskeleton which is moulted). Bed bugs have a characteristic smell of rotten raspberries. The most accurate way to find the exact location of an infestation is with a bed-bug-detection dog, which speeds up the process considerably

Why Are Infestations So Frequent?

Between the 1930s and 1980s, the rate of outbreaks fell dramatically. However, since the 1980s infestations have seen a sharp increase. It has been suggested that this is because of resistance to pesticides and an increase in international travel, which helps the insects spread. There are several different species of bed bug around the world, but it is the common bed bug which is most adapted to human environments.

How Can They Be Eradicated?

It is a good idea to call in a professional who is used to tackling bed-bug outbreaks. When it comes to pest control services Dublin residents have a range of companies to choose from. They tend to approach the issue with several different approaches at a time, using both pesticide and non-pesticide methods. The most effective seems to be a combination of heating and drying the affected area.
