Nevada Nation’s Least Safe State

Crime Scene

Nevada was recently recognized with an unflattering designation, and it’s not going to help with our lagging tourist numbers.

The latest study conducted by WalletHub, designates our much-loved state as this country’s least safe state! We couldn’t even get 49th out of 50; but I guess someone has to come in last.

According to the report, several different factors (26 to be exact) were taken into consideration when compiling the rankings of most safe to least safe states. Some of these factors include: crime, natural disasters, insurance coverage, traffic accidents, and even took into account the amount of money in our savings accounts.

The most disturbing trend was that Nevada ranked 47/50 in the highest number of assaults per capita. Yikes! It’s not determined just how many of these assaults were done by local residents or tourists.

Other than assaults per capita, there wasn’t any other specific category that we ranked especially low in; just low averages across the board.

Pest Control Boulder City

bulwark-service5

Boulder City, Nevada is home to one of the biggest lakes in Nevada. The lake is held back by the Hoover Dam. Each year thousands of people will come visit this beautiful area every year. The weather is never too cold in Boulder City during the winter, so even more snowbirds will come spend the winter months here. With the great weather year round, thousands of unwanted visitors will also come. These visitors are various pests like spiders, ants, crickets, and even scorpions. All of these pests can be controlled if you use the right pest control.

What should you look for in a pest control company?

In Bolder City there are a lot of pest control companies to choose from, and choosing the right one can be tough. It can be done if you know how to look. Here are some very easy things to look for in a good pest control company.

Make sure they do a foundation spray with a power sprayer.

When looking at different companies ask what they use to treat around your home. A lot of pest control companies will use a backpack sprayer. A backpack sprayer will not work! A pest control company that uses a power sprayer is doing the right job. The power sprayer will have pressure to get into the soil and under rocks around your foundation.

Make sure your pest control company treats the plants.

Most pest control companies will not treat your plants; make sure you get one that will. Treating around your plants will help kill the bugs at the source of the problem. Pests live at the base of the plants, eating the roots and drinking the water from the drippers. By granulating these plants, it will control the pests. The granules will be activated by the water and will help prevent the pests from infesting your yard.

Make sure your pest control company does an in wall treatment.

Pests you see inside your home will live inside the walls. To treat this you will need an in wall treatment done. An in wall treatment will be done by taking off the faceplates from outlets and placing a product inside the walls. This product will exterminate any pests that are infested inside your home.

Nevada Exterminators

Las Vegas ExterminatorThe 7th largest state in the United States is Nevada, and is home to over 2 million Nevadans.  With Nevada’s many beautiful white capped mountain ranges it is no wonder why Nevada is derived from the Spanish word “snowcapped.”  Nevada is famous for having the world’s biggest littlie city; Reno, NV. In addition, the world famous city of Las Vegas, and the awe-inspiring Hover Dam, are also found in Nevada.  Nevada is also home to many pests like crickets, cockroaches, spiders, scorpions, and ants. All of these pests will need to be exterminated or they will cause a huge problem.

Where will Nevada pests live? 

Most of the pests that live in Nevada are going to live on the outside of the home. Pest will live anywhere from plants, to woodpiles, grass, under rocks, and even in pool equipment. These areas will provide protection for the pests to live, and provide a valid food source. When the pest starts to over populate outside the home, they will then make their way into the home. Inside the home they will infest the walls and cause a major problem.

What will an exterminator do to stop the infestation? 

To stop pests from infesting a home, an exterminator will need to do a very intensive treatment.  The exterminator will need to identify what pests are living at the home. When the pest is identified, the exterminator can then treat for the problem with the correct product(s). The exterminator should also do an in-wall treatment to kill any pests living inside the walls of the home. The exterminator will then power spray around the whole home, and then treat the plants and bushes with granules.  This will provide the home with a strong barrier, and exterminate any pest trying to infest the home.

Where can you find a good exterminator? 

The best place to look for a good exterminator in Nevada is online. You can do this by looking on Better Business Bureau, Google and Yelp.

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.
