Silverfish are fish-shaped insects with silvery scales covering their bodies. Signs of silverfish infestation include feeding marks, yellow stains and black, pepper-looking feces on food sources such as wall paper, labels and envelops. They can be found almost anywhere inside residential and commercial structures. They prefer room temperature areas with high humidity. If you identify silverfish at your property, a professional inspection followed by the necessary silverfish treatment should be done to eliminate the infestation.
Springtails derive their name from the spring-like structure that allows them to jump. They are nuisance pests that prefer high moisture areas where they can feed on decaying vegetation, bacteria, pollen, algae and the like. Since they are in search for moisture, Springtails often make their way into bathrooms, kitchens and crawl spaces as well as potted plants. Outdoors, they may be found in damp areas such as mulch, leaf piles and logs. If springtails are found in your house, the best way to remove them is to dry out the area of springtail infestation, after which they will leave or die. If the area cannot be dried, then the appropriate pesticide should be applied.
Scorpions are a nuisance pest that requires medical attention if stung. They are two to four inches long, with a stinger at the end of their tail-like structure. Scorpions are found primarily in the Southwest and Southern regions of the United States. They hunt their prey at night (other insects such as crickets or cockroaches), and during the day hide under rocks, logs and debris, or inside burrows and sandboxes. Indoors, scorpions may be lurking in attics, in bathrooms to find water, or even in folded up clothes and blankets. A scorpion infestation is controlled by removing materials where they could hide, damp environments, their food source and may require pesticide application.
Beetles are pests because of the damage they do to stored household and pantry products, as well as fabrics such as paper and carpet. To prevent beetle infestations, it is important to perform effective beetle removal and control activities such as using proper sanitation methods and storage of products.
House Flies fumigation
House flies, as their name would indicate, are the most common flies found in and around the home. Like other flies, they are a nuisance and carry multiple disease organisms. House flies are dull gray in color with four dark stripes on their back. They are attracted to smells, moist places to lay eggs and air currents from buildings. To control a house fly infestation, it is important to identify and inspect the flies’ habitat, clean the surrounding area of excess garbage and apply the appropriate pesticide.
Fruit Flies treatment
Fruit flies are named for their tendency to lay their eggs on fruits. They are a nuisance as well as potential disease carriers. Fruit flies are tan to brownish yellow to brownish black, and measure up to 1/8 of an inch long. They are attracted to fresh fruits, vegetables and decaying organic matter. To get rid of fruit flies and control the fruit fly infestation, it is essential to remove their breeding site. If they are entering from outdoors, smaller mesh screens and baited jar traps can be used. In other cases pesticides can be used, after which the area should be kept thoroughly sanitized.
Carpenter Bees are a nuisance because of their nesting habits in wood. While they prefer, dry, unpainted wood, they will nest in just about any type. Carpenter Bees appear similar to Bumble Bees and males lack a stinger. They become aggressive when humans come too close, buzzing around a person’s face and head. For Carpenter bee control, the appropriate pesticides should be applied to woodwork.
Cigarette Beetles fumigation
Cigarette beetles get their name for their tendency to attack tobacco wherever it is stored. They are 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch in size, and light brown in color. Along with tabacco, Cigarette beetles attack several items including animal products, coffee, spices, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
