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:

Although the Brown Recluse spider is not commonly found in Las Vegas, there are plenty of other species of spider that do reside in Sin city. If you have the misfortune of battling Black Widow spiders, Wolf spiders, Cellar spiders, Desert Recluses, or any other type of spider for that matter; get professional spider control in Las Vegas.

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.

A Las Vegas pest control company will exterminate the existing household pests, and prevent others from making your home theirs. Get Las Vegas pest control today!

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.

Source: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Division/Legal/LawLibrary/NRS/NRS-447.html

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.

Bulwark Exterminating Featured On Flipping Vegas

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:

http://www.aetv.com/flipping-vegas/

“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.

Las Vegas Scorpion Control

Watch For Pests Hiding In Your Christmas Decorations

Christmas Pests

The magical Christmas season is finally here. The joyous event of decorating your home with all those beautiful decorations could be less joyous with an unfortunate encounter with a pest hiding in your decorations. Pests can quickly make the happiest time of year, into a time of worry and frustration.

Pests like scorpions, spiders, rodents, and silverfish love hiding out among your boxes of Christmas decorations. There are a few things that you can do to help ensure your Christmas is free of pests that may be hiding in your decorations.

Watch Out For Pests Hiding In Your Christmas Decor

Most of you have boxes and boxes full of Christmas lights, ceramic figurines, Christmas wrapping paper, and wreathes. You likely store these boxes in a garage, in your basement, or in the attic; all places Las Vegas pests love to hide when the weather cools. Here are a few holiday decorating tips that will ensure you don’t bring about a full on pest infestation inside your home.

First, examine Christmas boxes. If there are any pests living among your Christmas decorations, they will leave some evidence. Look for discarded shells of seeds or nuts. Rodent droppings are also an obvious clue of a pest problem. Look for the dead carcasses of silverfish or roaches. Where there are dead insects there are usually living ones… Plus, spiders and scorpions will be feeding on them.

Cautiously handle boxes. Use caution and be alert when you open those boxes of Christmas decorations. If there is a scorpion, spider, or rodent living inside; a misplaced hand could result in a painful bite or sting.

Open decorations outside first. By doing this you will keep from bringing any unwanted bugs or disease carrying rodents inside your home.

Inspect your Christmas tree. Whether your Christmas tree is real or fake, it needs to be thoroughly inspected for any evidence of pests. Rodents like mice, squirrels, and rats love making their nests inside artificial trees. If you buy a live tree on a lot, or cut one down yourself, look for signs of aphids, and other small tree insects. You won’t want them crawling all over you.

Get Las Vegas pest control. If you do happen to find any signs of pests living among your Christmas decorations, get professional help. A licensed Las Vegas exterminator can rid you of any of the above mentioned pests; and ensure your Christmas is pest free.
