Ewww Earwigs

Earwig on stemThe first thing people should know about earwigs is that they don’t really crawl into your ear and eat your brain or lay millions of eggs or any of that stuff. It is all mythical with no scientific backing. On occasion, just like a mosquito, fly or any other bug, a lost and confused earwig may find your ear, but this is not typical earwig behavior. The scariest thing about an earwig is probably its pincers.

The earwig is a brownish-black bug with a slender, elongated shape. At the end of its abdomen, the earwig has a pair of ferocious-looking pincers. These pincers are used to defend themselves and capture prey. When threatened the earwig may curve up its rear and expose its pincers. These pincers can pinch slightly, but are typically harmless to people. The pincers also determine the gender of the bug. Females have straight pincers, while males will have them a bit more curved, with a much bigger width than those of the females.

Earwigs happen to be extremely fond of moisture and warmth. They’re commonly found in gardens, potted plants, and under welcome mats; pretty much anywhere with its basic needs of shelter, food, and warmth. Earwigs eat different plants, insects, and greasy foods. Earwigs can usually be found gathered together wherever they can find their needs. This usually can push them into homes. Earwigs are most active at night and secrete a foul-smelling, yellowish-brown liquid from their scent glands.

5 Most Common Las Vegas Pests

Las Vegas is world renown for its awe inspiring mega resorts, its entertaining shows, and hopping night life. Vacationers and residents alike can dine in the finest restaurants, cool off in lavish pools, and try their luck at a hand or two of black jack.

What many people don’t know is that Las Vegas has a dark side. The city is also home to some serious pests (and no, we’re not talking about the smut peddlers on the Strip).

Thanks to Las Vegas’ hot summers, dry winters and rainy springs, pests like ants, scorpions, crickets, roaches, spiders, bed bugs and termites all call Vegas their home.

Here are the top five most common pests that Bulwark Exterminating takes calls about in the city of Las Vegas, NV:

5. Desert Recluses

 

Desert Recluse - Loxosceles sp.

 

Often mistaken for its similar cousin the brown recluse, the desert recluse is another dangerous Las Vegas pest. Hiding in the tiniest, darkest, places it can find, the desert recluse is a threat to Las Vegas homeowners; because of their toxic bites. These spiders are a light brown, with a near black violin-shaped spot. Its legs are light brown, and its oval-shaped abdomen is dark brown, or even a greenish yellow. If disturbed by humans, the desert recluse will bite, producing a mild stinging, followed by redness and intense pain. Bites can cause death to the young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.

4. Black Widows

 

Black Widow Spider 

The most recognizable of the Las Vegas pests also happens to be one of the most common… and the most dangerous. She’s the Black Widow spider, and she is marked with an unmistakable red hour glass underneath her large, glossy, black abdomen. Stay away from these deadly pests because their bites are serious business that may require medical treatment and anti-venom. Symptoms include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Professional spider control services can keep these nasty pests from building their webs anywhere near your Las Vegas property.

3. Cockroaches

 

Roach On Cracker 

The dirtiest and most disgusting of the Las Vegas pests is also one of the most common. Number three on our list is the dirty, disease spreading cockroach. When referring to Las Vegas cockroaches, we are specifically talking about four different species. The American cockroach (also known as a water bug), the Australian cockroach (a littler version of the American), the Oriental cockroach, and the German cockroach are the four common Las Vegas roaches. Not only are these cockroaches found infesting your homes, they also infest Las Vegas restaurants. Professional roach control methods are needed to eliminate these pests from our Las Vegas homes.

2. Bark Scorpions

 

Scorpion_Top_View 

The most notorious pest found in Las Vegas; also happens to be one of the most common. It’s the Arizona Bark scorpion; commonly referred to as a bark scorpion. Las Vegas scorpions unleash a painful sting that can leave you incapacitated for hours, even days. When stung, you’ll experience pain, dizziness, burning sensations, darting eyes, nausea, and vomiting. Professional scorpion control can keep these dangerous Las Vegas pests away from your home.

1. Crickets

 

Cricket 

The most forgotten of Las Vegas pests, happens to be the most common. Crickets are the most frequently called about pests in Las Vegas, according to a recent survey by Bulwark Pest Control. Because they are not dangerous pests, they are often times overlooked. Las Vegas homeowners are reminded of these common pests when they start their loud chirping at night. Because they reproduce so rapidly, they can be found in huge numbers in and around Las Vegas homes.

Bulwark Exterminating & Earth Day

Earth-Erde

Earth-Erde (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today is Earth Day! It’s a day in which all of us can appreciate this beautiful planet in which we live, and reflect on our own individual efforts to lower our carbon footprint.

Over the past few years, Bulwark Exterminating has made many efforts to go green and do their part to save the planet, all while increasing customer satisfaction.

Bulwark Exterminating’s Efforts To Go Green

Bulwark Exterminating, who has a branch in Las Vegas, NV, has made many efforts to go paperless and go green. These efforts save some 60,000 sheets of paper per month. Here are just a few examples:

  • Customer invoices are now emailed, and can also be accessed electronically.
  • Pest control service tickets are being emailed to customers as well.
  • Any fax that Bulwark receives goes to email instead of being printed out.
  • Sales contracts can now be completed electronically.
  • Technicians utilize paperless electronic routing.

Going Green: Paperless Routing

One component to “going green,” is going paperless. Bulwark Pest Control of Las Vegas is now paperless.

Bulwark technicians used to have to drive in to the office every morning, and print off routes, customer information, and service notes. This created a lot of unnecessary paperwork.

Now, smart phone technology and special software allows Bulwark’s technicians to start servicing customers as soon as they leave their home. Each morning, technicians receive an email on their smart phones. With these emails, technicians are able to access their routes, customer contact information and custom service notes for each customers. No more redundant paperwork.

With these above mentioned combined efforts, Bulwark Exterminating has been able to effectively get rid of 60,000 sheets of paper a month! This will save a lot of trees.

Helping To Save The Planet

Paper production is the second largest user of energy and water when it comes to manufacturing in the United States. Paper production is also the third largest contributor to pollution. Reducing paper usage by 60 percent will eliminate over 200 lbs of greenhouse gas a year.

A small business can use at least of 10,000 pieces of paper each year… Per employee! That’s crazy! An average tree will fabricate almost 17 reams of paper. With the average small business employee responsible for using 1.2 trees a year just to do their job, some 178 million trees are no longer part of our eco system.

One pest control technician going paperless can save one tree a year. This Earth Day lets all make a stronger effort to go green, go paperless, and reduce our carbon footprint.

Nevada Bedbug Laws

bedbug (Cimex sp.)

Last year some 40 million tourists flocked to Las Vegas for some fun and gambling in the desert. While most of these tourists are worried about not losing a fortune at the black jack table; there is another worry Las Vegas tourists should be concerned about—the blood sucking bedbugs.

If you happen to contract bedbugs from a Las Vegas hotel; or if you are a tenant or property manager battling a bedbug infestation; it’s important to know what the bedbug laws are in the State of Nevada.

Las Vegas Bedbugs

 

Bedbug infestations continue to rise across much of the United States, and the State of Nevada is not exempt form these tiny hitchhiking pests. Currently, the city of Las Vegas is the 46th ranked bedbug infested city in the country. While these numbers are drastically improved, down 30 spots from last year’s ranking, bedbugs are still a problem in the city.

Nevada Bedbug Laws

 

Currently, there are 22 States in the U.S. with bedbug laws. As of 3/2013, there are two bedbug laws in the books for the state of Nevada. With proposed bedbug legislation being brought to the table on a frequent basis, these laws can change. They are as follows:

  • Extermination– Nevada Revised Code 447.030

Any room in any hotel in Nevada that is infested with bedbugs shall be thoroughly fumigated, disinfected and renovated until such bedbugs are entirely exterminated.

  • Sanitation– Nevada Revised Code 444

In a camp, proper bedbug prevention measures must be taken.

Tenant-Landlord Rights & Obligations

 

Landlords and property owners have an obligation to provide safe and habitable accommodations for tenants. Bedbug infestations can be considered improper accommodations. Tenants have an obligation to cooperate with owners and landlords. This includes preparing the home so that the pest control operator can easily inspect the rooms and treat if necessary.

For more information on the rights and obligations of tenants and landlords, visit the Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 118A – Landlord and Tenant: Dwellings webpage.

Hire A Bedbug Attorney

 

The information provided in this article is for informational purposes only, and not for the purpose of providing legal advice. These are the bedbug laws as of March 2013, and can change. If you feel that you have been a bedbug victim; whether landlord, tenant, or otherwise, please contact a licensed attorney who specializes in bedbug cases.

What’s That Itching in My Ear?

 

Imagine the horror of finding a spider living inside your ear. That was exactly the case for one Chinese woman this week. The unidentified woman had been suffering from some ear irritation for five days when she finally decided to seek medical attention. Dr. Liu Sheng, the woman’s physician at China’s Changsha Central Hospital, looked inside the woman’s ear and was horrified to find a spider looking back at her.

 

 

Dr. Sheng chose to flush the spider out with some saline solution, as opposed to removing it with surgical tools. After the saline flushing, the spider crawled out and the women reportedly cried tears of joy.

Why Spiders Like Ears

The spider likely crawled into the women’s ear canal while she was sleeping. Spiders, and other insects, will crawl into an ear looking for warmth, moisture, and harborage. An ear canal closely resembles the borough of many different kinds of spiders. Ticks are also common ear inhabitants. Always on the lookout for a generous blood supply, the inner ear and eardrum offer an all-you-can eat smorgasbord for these tiny bloodsuckers.

Removing Spiders from the Ear

Removing spiders and other insects from one’s ear is a very delicate process. If you attempt to remove the new inhabitant with a q-tip or even a surgical tool, you will startle it. A spider will then retreat as far down the ear canal as possible and dig its sharp barbs into the sides of the canal. Flushing the inhabitant with hydrogen peroxide or a saline solution can help evacuate your ear’s new tenant. If you suspect an insect or spider has made your ear it’s new home, please seek the help of a medical doctor.

Huntsman spider.

If you are having an issue with spiders inside your home, contact a pest control professional immediately!
