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.

Understanding The Brown Recluse Infographic

Brown Recluse SpiderEEK!

SQUEEL!!

AAHHH!!!!

These are typical responses most of us have when we spot a spider inside our home. These strident emotions are more intense when the spider in question happens to be brown. If it’s brown, “It could be a Brown Recluse!”

The Brown Recluse spider has garnered much attention across the United States. This is mostly due to its venomous bite that has been shown to produce skin lesions, or necrosis.

The Brown Recluse’s bite is the bad news.

The good news is that the Brown Recluse is not commonly found in Las Vegas.

The next time you see a brown looking spider inside your Las Vegas home; keep in mind the following infographic:

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.

What Bed Bugs Bites Look Like?

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs have gotten a lot of publicity lately. You want to keep them out of your house, but may not even be sure about what the actual bug looks like or, what a real bed bug bite looks like.

What Bed Bugs Look Like

To explain a bit about their appearance, Bed bugs generally look similar to seeds. They are relatively small in size and are flat. The problem with bed bugs is they go through many changes throughout their life and they look different at each stage of their life cycle. They also have a different appearance before a feeding as to after a feeding.

Reproduction of Bed Bugs

The first hatched bed bug is very small and almost clear in color. It is visible by the naked eye but is only about 1.5 mm long. That means, it is about the size and shape of a small seed from an apple. Once it feeds, the bug becomes swollen and turns a reddish color.

After it molts, it grows to about 2 mm long. A bed bug molts five times before reaching the adult stage. It slowly grows and slowly turns brown. An adult bed bug is about 5.5 mm long and is solid brown. A female bed bug has the capability of laying up one to five eggs day, which hatch only 7 to 10 days later. Female bedbugs can lay 500 eggs in their lifetime and considering their life span can only extend to up to 300 days, you can only imagine how quickly these pesky bugs multiply.

Identifying Bed Bug Bites

Bed bug bites are small red bumps that have a tendency to itch. They are normally found in clusters or straight lines on the body. A large rash may develop, if there is a severe reaction to the bite. Bites can also become infected so it is important to keep bed bug bites clean to avoid any potential infections.

Even if you don’t have bed bugs bites, it is important to check your house for these pests. I recommend doing this because most people aren’t aware that they could have bed bugs even if they don’t have bites. This is because every person reacts a bit different when bitten by a bed bug. Plus, it is predicted that about thirty percent of people don’t show any reaction at all when bitten by a bed bug.

Common Places to Find these Bugs

Bed bugs like to hide out near their food, which is why they are most commonly found in mattresses and bedding. They have also been known to hide in closets and behind picture frames. They are small so any small cracks in walls, furniture or flooring make for a good home for bed bugs. They also like televisions, phones, and radios.

Getting rid of the bed bugs is not any easy task. The help of a bed bug control expert will be needed. The bed bug expert will be able to guide you through the process to make sure that the bed bugs are gone for good.

Spring Cleaning Tips: How Pest Prevention Helps You Prepare For Warmer Weather

Spring cleaning is a time to start fresh. For many families, that means getting rid of clutter, scrubbing down surfaces and implementing new organizational systems. Although not often thought about, pest prevention should be part of the spring cleaning process as well. As temperatures increase, a wide variety of pests make their move on unsuspecting homeowners. To keep them at bay, it is important to implement the following tips.

Take Away Their Food Source

If pests are able to find food inside your house, it is going to be difficult to get rid of them. Start the prevention process in your kitchen. Make sure that your trash can has a tight fitting lid; if it does not, consider picking up a new one. Also, clean both the outside and inside of your receptacle. A small tear in your trash bag can mean a large mess that pests will find appetizing. Finally, commit yourself to daily maintenance. It is important that you load your dishwasher each evening rather than allowing dishes to remain in the sink. In addition, keep the counters clean and the floors swept for best results.

Clean Up Standing Water

Go into all of your bathrooms, as well as your kitchen, and check under the sinks to make sure the pipes are not leaking. If you spot an issue, have it corrected as soon as possible. In addition, if you have an area of your home, like the basement, that seems damp or humid, set up a dehumidifier to take care of the problem. Pests are attracted to water, so leaving these issues unresolved is a recipe for disaster.

Prevent Nesting

Walk around the perimeter of your home, and examine the foundation closely. In order to keep bugs from viewing your home as their home, it may be necessary to complete a few projects. For instance, there should be at least once inch of space between the wood on your home and the soil from the yard. In addition, all mulch should be kept approximately a foot and a half away from the foundation. Finally, if you notice any cracks or small holes, make sure you close them up right away.

As a general rule, it is also a good idea to make sure that all your doors and windows have screens on them. This will make it much more difficult for a pest to gain access to your living space. In addition, keep all shrubbery trim and down away from your home.

As you get ready to begin the spring cleaning process, it is important not to forget about pest prevention. A little bit of work now can make a huge difference when warmer weather rolls around.

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.

A Guide To Total Bed Bug Extermination

An adult bed bug (Cimex lectularius) with the ...

Bed bugs have become problematic throughout Canada. As more immigrants and tourists enter the country from places where these pests are common, bed bugs travel in with their luggage. They take up residence in many hotels and can spread to workplaces when visitors attend conferences or even visit a restaurant. Bed bugs can be found nearly anywhere. However, there are several places they commonly hide once they enter the home.

Finding Bed bug Infestations

Bed bugs often hide along the seams of mattresses. They can also be found under furniture or beds. Some people have found these pests hiding in corners, under rugs or along the edges of carpeted rooms. Some people also notice a musky scent near the site of a bed bug infestation. Many people notice several small red bumps on their skin, which often appear in a row. Although these could also be indicators of other types of bites or skin irritants, they are often bed bug bites when aligned in a neat row.

Exterminating Bed bug Populations

Although there are many home treatments and remedies available on the Internet, it is important to remember that not all products work simply because the site owner makes such claims. Bedbug removal has always been one of the most difficult processes. In decades past, some frustrated homeowners even burned their houses to the ground. However, treatments have improved since those days. The most effective method of completely eradicating these pests is to call a professional bed bug exterminator.

What Professional Bed Bug Exterminators Do

There are a variety of extermination methods used by pest control professionals. The products they use are much more effective than treatments purchased in stores. They use special application methods and have professional tools and devices. Some companies may use all-natural methods or chemical-free substances instead of the more powerful chemicals.

What To Look For In An Extermination Company

It is best to work with a company that has sufficient experience in bed bug removal. A good company will have a service guarantee, which means that customers will receive a refund if the treatments are ineffective. When speaking with an extermination company on the telephone, consumers should ask if treatments are designed specifically for bed bugs. If a company does not provide treatments specifically for this pest and does not offer a satisfaction guarantee, it is better to continue searching for exterminators. Most Canadian extermination companies that have storefronts are legitimate businesses with the proper credentials. Consumers should beware of individuals offering independent extermination services in newspapers or through advertisements. If the person does not represent an established company that can be contacted to verify employment, consumers should avoid such individuals. Reading online consumer reviews from unbiased third-party sites is also a wise idea.

While it is important to eradicate bed bugs as quickly as possible, Canadian consumers should also take the necessary time to hire a reliable exterminator. Hiring the wrong company or individual could be a costly mistake, and bed bug infestations only grow if they are not properly removed.

How To Keep Bugs And Pests Out Of Your Home And Away From Your Family

It’s about that time of year again. The weather starts warming up, and bugs and other pests start making their rounds, looking for food and shelter. If you dread spring and summer because spiders, rats and ants give you the heebie-jeebies, then you’re in luck because we have a few tips to keep those uninvited guests out. How rude of them to not even ask for an invitation!

Chemicals Don’t Have to Be the Answer 

While many people quickly turn towards chemicals to keep unwanted pests from stepping foot in their homes, there are easier (and safer) ways to go about getting the job done. For starters, do a complete walkthrough of the inside and outside of your home. Look for cracks or gaps in your walls, and the foundation of your home. Many critters can find their way into our homes without us even realizing we basically had a red carpet leading them directly to our cozy living quarters. Fill imperfections with caulk as you find them to nip the problem in the bud before it becomes an extermination issue.

Door and windows are two of the most common ways for an unwanted visitor to sneak inside. Verify that doors close snuggly or have a sweep beneath them and that window screens are in good condition. It may be time to swap out for better screens if yours appear aged and if you plan on leaving your front door open during the warm weather, having a working screen there too is a must.

Don’t Allow Your Home to Become a Pest Vacation Retreat

If your yard or inside of your home is providing everything those nasty bugs require, why would they want to live anywhere else? Having an unkept yard with many hiding places (such as tall grass or overgrown bushes) and standing water can mean infestation time. Mosquitoes, for example, only require less than an ounce of water to begin reproducing and no one likes those itchy bites – not your pets, children or company.

Tiding Up and Removing Gourmet Meals

Many home owners provide food on the daily for pests without even realizing it. Dog food should be stored in plastic containers and not left outside for other animals to feast upon. The same can be said about garbage. Having an overflowing trash can not only makes a yard less appealing on the eyes but can feed a large number of pests, which your neighbors won’t be very happy about, either. Once they find a place to call ‘home’, it can be very tricky to get them out.

Speaking of cleanliness, it’s important that you not only keep the exterior of your home tidied up and maintained but the interior is just as important. If pests come into your home and find nothing to eat, they are likely to turn right around and leave the way they entered. However, if they find dirty dishes, messy carpets and un-swept floors, there isn’t going to be much reason for them not to stick around. The last thing you need is for them to call their buddies for a chow session. Rats will not only locate food in your home but burrow inside your walls, chew your electrical components and leave feces throughout your residence, which is extremely dangerous, especially when you have children or pets who may ingest the droppings. 

Turn Off That Welcome Sign

Food, water and the warmth of shelter attract a variety of animals and bugs. One thing many new home owners forget, especially if this is going to be your very first summer in your new home, is that light brings moths, and mosquitoes straight to your property. It’s like a huge ‘Vacancy’ sign at a hotel telling them to come check out the place and stay a while.

The Effect of Light on Insects and What You Can Do to Minimize the Effects

When it’s dark out, bugs navigate via something known as ‘phototaxis’, which describes how they act around light. Many insects are attracted to light and will do just about anything to get close to it. Cockroaches, on the other hand, are the opposite; they avoid lights like the plague. Hence, why you’ll see them run for cover when your flip that light switch in the middle of the night.

If you’re worried about the lights outside your home, it may be time to install motion detectors so they only come on when you need them. This way, when you’re hanging out in your backyard with your friends, you aren’t as likely to have bugs get in the way of your nice weekend get-together. Another solution would be replacing your current bulbs for CFL bulbs, because these do not attract pests to your doorstep as UV lighting options do.

The Battle Against Bugs: 3 Reasons Why You’re Losing The Fight

Pests don’t discriminate; they flock in equal numbers to homes, apartments, condos and townhouses. Regardless of where you live, you have probably encountered bugs in your living space on more than one occasion. For many, it often seems that as soon as they fix one pest problem, another equally annoying bug makes its presence known. This is frustrating and confusing, particularly if you feel you’ve taken the appropriate steps to protect your home. Why is it that bugs keep coming back time and time again? The following information will provide you with a little insight into the situation.

Supply and Demand

Just like people, bugs have to eat to survive. You have a readily available source of food, and the pests near your home can smell it. They also realize that in order to access their next meal, they have to gain entry into your living space. Whether it’s ants, a mouse or even a few roaches, the pests are going to keep coming back as long as your home has food in it.

Rapid Reproduction

Unlike people, pests tend to reproduce in very large numbers. In particular, spiders and insects may have several hundred babies at one time. This rapid reproduction has a significant impact on your efforts to control the number of pests in your home. For example, most bugs, when faced with having to feed such a large number of offspring, will become very persistent in their efforts to gain entry into your home. After all, once inside, they can provide their little ones with a nearly unlimited supply of food, as well as shelter. Also, if the bugs lay eggs inside your living space, you may find that those eggs are not affected by pest sprays. Therefore, just when you think you have the problem under control, the eggs hatch and everything starts all over again.

Unfavorable Weather Conditions

Some bugs are tougher than others. For example, roaches deal well with extreme temperatures, rain and a number of other weather conditions. However, other pests aren’t so resilient. Bed bugs, for instance, prefer to be warm and will therefore do everything in their power to get inside your home in the wintertime. Once they get used to their surroundings, they are unlikely to leave, even as the seasons change. They are just one example of the many pests that make comfort a priority, hijacking your living space and making themselves at home despite your best efforts to ward them off.

If you are having trouble getting rid of pests, remember that the situation does not illustrate a failure on your part. As the examples above have shown, most bugs are determined, resilient little creatures that are seeking food and shelter. Try to use this knowledge in your favor as you continue the battle to keep these pesky creatures outside, where they belong.

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.

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.
