Many Different Types of Beetles Are Attracted to External Floodlights

beetles

Eliminate Pooled Moisture to Avoid Beetle Infestations

Beetles have firm antennae and chewing mandibles, and are characterized by their very firm, hard wings, which are often mistaken for their outer shell. They fold their front pair of wings over their back pair, which are waterproof and protect the beetle from damage and dehydration. Interestingly, despite their two pairs of wings, beetles are poor fliers.

Many species of beetles can prove damaging to humans, especially in an agricultural sense. These insects feed on plants, other small insects, or animal fibers, depending on the species. While some species are characterized as pests on farms and in gardens, while some other species, such as the ladybug, often prove beneficial to humans by killing harmful insects.

Flour and grain feed on food products in homes, and have also been known to damage food production/storage facilities and stores. June beetles, on the other hand, attack lawns and landscapes and attack the roots of grass, which might necessitate costly replacement in the long run.

beetlesDuring the fall and winter, these insects may become an even more prevalent pest to homeowners, because they’ll constantly be trying to make their way inside your home to escape from the cold weather. During these period, you may be able to spot hundreds of beetles clustering around the outside of your home as they try to spot an opening.

In general terms, they can be divided into three different categories, which allows pest control experts to more accurately identify and exterminate the offending species. These categories include food product beetles, wood-destroying beetles, and fabric-infesting beetles.

Some kinds of beetles can be removed simply by using a vacuum of a broom, but your pest control profession will be able to recommend the best means of removal. Moreover, many different types of beetles and other insects are attracted to floodlights outside the home or business. Therefore, it’s a good idea to switch from white lightbulbs to the less enticing yellow lights.

In the summer months especially, it’s important to remove food or compost that supports beetle development and reproduction. Likewise, moisture control is an important step in controlling beetle infestations. Make sure that areas like basements, bathrooms, and attics are kept as moisture-free as possible.

beetlesSome popular removal methods that pest control companies may choose to employ include using a pheromone-based beetle trap, which will effectively attract and immobilize the beetles. This will serve to determine the location of ingress and help you to administer insecticides effectively.

Bee Hives Consist of Tightly Knit and Efficient Communities

bees

Bees Play a Crucial Role in the Propagation of Plant Life

Queen bees mate and lay eggs for the entire span of their lives and can sometimes live up to five years, though the average lifespan is only about two to three years. Male drones, on the other hand, exist solely to fertilize the queen, and die soon after they do so.

Alternatively, female worker bees perform a variety of tasks around the hive and ensure that things continue to run smoothly within the population. Most of the time, these duties include the collection of pollen for the nourishment of the developing brood, but their roles also extend to honey sealing, grooming and feeding the queen, honeycomb building, pollen packing, carrying water, guarding the hive, and ensuring that dead drones and failed larvae are removed from the hive. As a result of their near-ceaseless toil, the life spans of these female workers rarely last longer than six weeks.

All bees are covered in thin hairs, which is crucial for pollination. They are attracted to blooming flowers and fruits, at which point they’ll alight on a blossom and collect pollen in specially-evolved pollen baskets on their back legs. As a bee travels from one blossom to another, some of this pollen will rub off into the pistil of the second plant, resulting in cross pollination. Almost all of humanity’s food supply is dependent upon pollination by honey bees.

beesWhile only female worker bees can collect and transfer pollen from plant to plant, all bees can drink nectar—their primary source of energy—through a tongue-like proboscis. After the nectar is collected, females can convert it into honey with the help of a cocktail of specialized enzymes in their stomachs. This nectar is then transported back to the hive and deposited into wax cells where it eventually evaporates into honey.

While swarms are not unheard of, they’re generally not considered a threat unless the species in question happens to be the Africanized honey bee or “killer” bee, as it’s colloquially known. Swarming usually only occurs in robust and thriving populations and often occurs as a result of overcrowding. Swarms occur when the queen, accompanied by a contingent of workers, leaves the original colony in search of a new nesting site.

beesThe swarm will commonly stop at a resting place before sending out scouts to locate a suitable location for a new nest, such as a hollow log or similar cavity. The swarm will then relocate to the new nesting site and begin to build the hive anew.

bedbugs

Identifying Bedbug Eggs Is a Crucial Step Toward Their Extermination

bedbugs

Bedbugs Hide In the Most Innocuous of Places

Bedbugs begin their lives as eggs. These eggs are generally cylindrical or oval-like in shape, and are rounded at one end and have a flat, hatch-like structure at the other. The rounded end provides a suitable means of egress when the bedbug is ready to hatch.

Bedbug eggs are a shiny, milky-white color and slightly translucent, as are the newly hatched bedbug nymphs. A nymph will maintain its whitish, yellowish hue until its first blood-meal, at which point it will acquire its characteristic amber, reddish coloration.

When an immature bedbug has recently eaten, it will retain its blood-red coloration for a short period of time, essentially until it has digested all of the surplus blood particles that it’s managed to collect. As the bedbug digests uses up its store of blood, it will gradually begin to turn translucent again.

bedbugsMaking matters worse is the fact that bedbug eggs, as well as newly hatched bedbugs are notoriously small and difficult to see—they con sometimes be about the size of a single stitch on sewn mattress fabric—meaning that their naturally white color affords them a certain degree of camouflage as they unintentionally blend in with mattresses, sheets, and blankets.

Like snakes, bedbugs have been known to shed their skins at various stages in their development. Bedbugs must have a blood meal in order to proceed to the next stage of their development. Most entomologists agree that a bedbug must go through five different instars in order to reach adulthood.

When a bedbug gorges on human blood, its abdomen can expand to many times its original size, which means that it’s necessary for a bedbug to shed its distended skin to accommodate its newer, larger size. Again, considering their initial, tiny size, it’s possible for bedbugs to hide nearly anywhere around human bedding areas.

bedbugsAfter feeding, and when fully engorged, bedbug nymphs can grow to about six times their original size. Adult bedbugs, on the other hand, my grow about two and a half times larger after feeding. When adult bedbugs are finished digesting blood, they’re about a quarter of an inch long and roughly one sixteenth of an inch wide. When viewed from the side, bedbugs look rather flat, and adults can be thinner than an average business card when flush against a surface.

ants

Carpenter Ants Will Damage the Walls and Ceilings of Your Home

ants

Exterminate Destructive Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are among the most common ant species found throughout Texas. They are an extremely adaptable species and have been known to thrive in outdoor and indoor environments.

These ants prefer semi-moist and humid environments and usually nest in trees, tree stumps, fallen logs, fence posts, ceiling beams, roofing boards, and even inside attic insulation.

Thanks to their tiny size, these ants can go undetected for long periods of time if they choose to nest inside your home. By the time their presence become apparent, extensive damage to your home may have already been done.

Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat the wooden structures in which they nest. Rather, they break down and remove the wood in order to enlarge their nesting space. Depending on the size of the colony, the amount of wood that these ants are able to destroy over time can be extreme.

antsAlthough these pests have the ability to break down and remove cellulose material, they usually prefer to move into preexisting cavities like termite galleries, or areas that have been gradually worn down by rot. These areas prove especially attractive to carpenter ants as they search for a nest because of the naturally moist conditions.

Keep an eye out for piles of sawdust-like material or similar wood shavings that may be collecting around suspicious holes. This removed wood material is one of the telltale signs that carpenter ants have been expanding their nest in the vicinity.

The appearance of worker ants will be the most obvious sign of an infestation in your home. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that carpenter ant workers can vary in size within the same species. Likewise, these pests have been known to traverse great distances as they forage for food, meaning that even if you spot some of these ants around your home, it shouldn’t be taken as conclusive evidence that they have decided to nest inside your walls.

antsWhen trying to determine the nesting place of a carpenter ant colony, the exterminator will check walls and ceilings first. Once the exterminator determines the nest’s exact location, it is possible to treat the infestation. Keep in mind, attempting to administer pesticides on your own is ill-advised, as the improper application of these toxins may inadvertently harm other residents or pets; a professional exterminator will keep your pets and family safe.

yellow jackets

Yellow Jackets Prey On a Variety of Damaging Insects

yellow jackets

Yellow Jacket Populations Can Grow to Huge Sizes if Left Unchecked

Not unlike bees, yellow jackets are social insects and live in nests with thousands of individuals at a time. Most yellow jackets prefer to nest on the ground, and their colonies are often found underneath porches, steps, crawlspaces, and at the base of trees.

Occasionally, yellow jackets will nest inside the hollows of walls, especially in older houses. Others, however, will make their nests off the ground, often in the branches of trees of in the rafters of man-made structures. Most of the time, yellow jacket populations will die during the cold winter months. Sometimes, however, the population manages to live on, especially if their nest happens to be in a particularly sheltered location. In a warm attic a yellow jacket population can continue growing until it reaches upwards of one million members.

Yellow jackets can be aggressive insects when their nest is threatened. Unlike bees, yellow jackets have the capacity to sting a target multiple times, thanks to their slender stinger and small barb-like point. Depending on the person, yellow jacket venom has the ability to cause severe allergic reaction which may even prove to be fatal depending on the number of times the person in question has been stung.

yellow jacketsDespite the potential health risks they pose to humans, yellow jackets are beneficial pests that prey on a variety of damaging insects. Unless their nest is directly threatened, yellow jackets are usually to loath to sting, although they can occasionally become a nuisance to humans and pets, at which point a pest control expert should be consulted.

For ground-level or below-ground nests, it’s common practice for an exterminator to employ an insecticide dust, which is administered in and around the nest entrance.

The matter becomes slightly more complicated when yellow jackets nest inside structures, however, as their entrance must be sealed until all the members of the colony are dead. Otherwise, the living members of the colony will try to escape through the inside of the structure, creating a stinging hazard for all the human occupants that happen to be inside.

yellow jacketsFly-prevention measures can be applied to the prevention of yellow jackets as well. Keeping garbage cans closed and sealed will prevent yellow jackets from seeking out food residue and rotting refuse. Clear away fallen fruit and make sure it doesn’t start to rot on your lawn; rotting fruit will inevitably attract more insects and vermin of all kinds to your yard.

wasps

Identifying and Removing Wasps’ Nests Around Your Home

Red Paper Wasp

Hire an Exterminator for Safe and Effective Wasp Nest Removal

At a glance, it’s sometimes difficult to tell the difference between a wasp and a bee, especially if you’re focusing on net getting stung. The principal difference between wasps and bees is that the former are carnivorous while the later feed on nectar and pollen. Wasps have smooth, sleek bodies with a thin profile, while bees have larger, hairy bodies, which they use for transporting pollen.

They are usually half an inch to three-quarters of an inch long and mainly feed on spiders. These insects are common problems for homeowners all across North America. Like many other insects, they are most active during the summertime.

Wasps can be dangerous, especially to kids who have developed allergic reactions to these pests. To make matters worse, these insects often make their nests in areas that may be inaccessible to some homeowners. Elderly people, in particular, may not have the means to remove a nest on their own. In these instances, nests may be allowed to grow to extreme sizes. Removal of these mega-nests require an exterminator for the occupant’s safety and well-being.

waspsWasps are either solitary or social. Solitary wasps will usually bother human beings unless provoked, and since they’re usually on their own, they really don’t present that great of a threat. Social wasps, on the other hand, can be significantly more dangerous, because they’ll always have back up, as it were, and they can quickly organize themselves into threatening swarms.

Once these social insects have established a nest, they will continue to return to it again and again, at which point they become territorial and have the potential to become highly aggressive. Many wasps prefer to build their nests under protected, shady areas, like under eaves, porch roofs, decks, sheds, and steps. Sometimes their nests are hard to locate because they can maneuver themselves into very small spaces.

One good method to determine exactly where the wasps have nested is to wait until dusk and then observe the flight patterns of the wasps. Just this mild degree of observation is usually enough to determine the general whereabouts of the nest, and even if you can’t find it that night, you may be able to see the nest itself the next day when visibility has improved.

If you are able to determine the exact location of a nest, it’s a good idea to call an exterminator to remove the nest quickly and safely. Homeowners often try to remove wasp nests themselves, but only end up aggravating them instead.

waspsOccasionally, wasps will make their homes inside walls. This is probably the most difficult place from which to remove them, as they’re sheltered from all sides. Also, the wasps can detect noises that a homeowner may make trying to remove them, further angering them and causing them to swarm. If wasps are swarming about your home or office call an exterminator immediately. An exterminator will know exactly how to go about removing them safely without harm to occupants and pets.

voles

Voles Can Cause Costly Damage to Landscaping

voles

Vole Burrowing Can Disrupt Root Systems

Voles spend most of their time burrowing in their elaborate, far-reaching den network, although they can sometimes be seen running along above ground as well. One of the clearest telltale signs of voles in your yard is the appearance of well-traveled, above ground routes or pathways that connect one burrow opening to another.

However, these paths can sometime prove difficult to spot, as they’re commonly covered with a protective layer of grass or foliage, which is usually adequate to protect the runway from sight. These burrow openings, which can appear suddenly and in worrying numbers, are usually about one and a half to two inches in diameter.

Further evidence of voles, apart from their burrow openings, is the appearance of fresh grass “clippings” or small droppings which are usually greenish in color. As these droppings are exposed to oxygen, they tend to turn brown or grey over time.

Voles are active through the year and can operate even in frozen climates. In the winter, they have the ability to burrow layers of snow and up to the surface. Vole populations tend to fluctuate from year to year, but under favorable conditions and with access to enough food, their numbers can increase rapidly and they can quickly become pests.

volesSeveral families can occupy a single burrow system, and they size of the system depends largely on the availability of food in the area.

Voles can and typically do breed through the year, although peak mating times often occur in the spring. Females mature very quickly, usually in about thirty-five to forty days, and can give birth to up to ten litters a year.

Litters usually consist of about three to six young, although it’s uncommon for voles to live longer than a year in the wild.

Most voles usually will not venture inside human habitations; most of the damage they cause will be outdoors. During prime vole breeding seasons, outbreaks of vole populations can lead to fairly serious economic issues, as voles have been known to destroy crops and gardens, and their burrowing disturbs the roots of many other kinds of plants.

volesMoreover, they can also cause costly damage to landscaping, which may have to be replaced completely. Although voles are poor climbers and prefer to remain underground, they can sometimes climb up on low hanging tree branches and cause damage to trees off the surface of the ground as well.

ticks

Tick Bites Spread a Variety of Diseases to Humans and Pets

ticks

Exterminate Ticks In Overgrown Grass and Shrubbery

Ticks lock on to their hosts by detecting their breath and body odor, or by tracking its body heat, moisture, or vibrations. While ticks can neither jump nor fly, they exhibit a behavior known as “questing” which involves waiting on the ends of leaves or grass with their first pair of legs outstretched. If a host happens by and brushes past the tick’s questing location, the tick will quickly detach from its position and climb onto the host.

Once on the surface of their new host, some species will attach in the first location they can find, while other species will wander around, looking for the thinnest piece of skin available such as the ear or scalp, for example. Once the pest finds a suitable feeding spot, it will cut into the skin of its host and begin to feed on its blood.

That said, keeping these pests out of your yard as much as possible is imperative, especially during the summer months, when both ticks and families engage in the most outdoor activity. They thrive in warm, moist weather, meaning that they are already beginning to prove problematic in some parts of the country.

ticksOne of the most effective and simplest measures that you can take to prevent ticks from invading your yard is to simply cut your grass. Ticks prefer overgrown foliage and ensuring good lawn maintenance—cutting your grass once every two weeks or so, for example—will significantly decrease the chances that ticks and other insects will find your property hospitable.

Another good measure to take is to keep wildlife out of your yard as much as possible. As mentioned above, ticks are known to hitch rides on all manner of larger mammals and other vermin, meaning that the exclusion of these animals will go a long way towards ensuring your lawn is tick-free. Depending on where you live, rabbits and deer are likely vectors for ticks, so maintaining fences of the appropriate size for the animals in question ought to do the trick.

Fleas and ticks have also been known to harbor in yard debris like fallen sticks, logs, and leaves. After the winter winds and storms die down, it’s a good idea to remove this detritus as soon as possible in order to eliminate possible hiding places. While you’re at it, be sure to get rid of any areas with standing water like flowerpots or backed-up drains, as these areas are prime breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

thrips

Thrips Can Appear Suddenly and Cause Agricultural Damage

thrips

Despite Their Size, Thrips Can Cause Serious Damage

Many species of thrips are considered pests because they cause serious economic damage to a variety of crops. Despite their minuscule size and ability to fly in limited bursts, they are more commonly carried long distances on the wind.

In the absence of natural predators—in green houses or grow rooms, for example—thrips population size can increase exponentially, at which point they become an especially pronounces nuisance to humans. Moreover, these insects are known vectors of upwards of twenty fairly serious agrarian diseases.

Female thrips can reproduce sexually or asexually, and commonly lay their eggs in the tissues and crevices of plants, providing an ample source of food for newly-hatched nymphs.

While thrips have the capacity to decimate large portions of crops simply by feeding on them, their destructive potential exponentially increases if they happen to be carrying any number of dangerous agricultural diseases.

Like many other types of insects, thrips become most problematic during the summer months. Indeed, they usually take anywhere from one to two months to develop into adulthood during the colder months, but during the hottest parts of summer, the process can take only a quarter of that time to complete.

thripsAs one might assume, thrips are most active during the hottest parts of the day, which means that many growers who choose to apply biochemical pesticides will do so during that time, when the thrips are less likely to be hunkered down inside the most secure parts of their host plants.

These insects are fairly difficult to control because of their size as well as their propensity to appear suddenly from an origin point that may be a great distance away. If control methods become necessary, it’s a wise decision to use a variety of means, including biochemical control, natural predators, and cultural control.

There are a few methods for determining if thrips are actually infesting the plant life on your property. One method is to shake or gently beat a sample of the foliage over a light-colored sheet of paper, so that any nesting nymphs will fall out and become visible. Another slightly more costly method is to use yellow sticky traps in or near your plants, which will likely collect a large number of thrips that happen by over time.

thripsThere are a variety of predatory insects that may be able to get rid of invasive thrips with minimal effort on your part, including green lacewings, minute pirate bugs, and several species of parasitic wasps, although extra precautions should be taken when introducing a whole new potentially dangerous species to an area in order to get rid of a preexisting one.

termites

Formosan Termites Are Tenacious and Resourceful Pests

termites

Formosan Termites Can Expand Their Population Sizes Incredibly Quickly

Several different termite species make their homes in the warm, dry regions of the southern United States, but none is more dangerous and costly than the Formosan termite. Originally from East Asia, Formosan termites were inadvertently brought to the United States during the second half of the twentieth century.

After establishing colonies in and around port cities, they soon spread to other parts of the country, particularly the American south. Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas termite services are fighting hard to combat the rampant spread of these insects.

That said, Formosan termite soldiers have oblong heads, whereas other species indigenous to North America tend to have more rectangular heads. Likewise, Formosan termite soldiers are markedly more aggressive when defending their colonies from attackers than indigenous species. When the soldiers engage a threat, they release a white liquid that is used for defense.

Formosan termites are a mostly subterranean species and prefer to build their nests beneath the soil. They commonly invade and begin to consume wooden structures that are in contact with the ground. However, they’ve also been known to construct tubes made of mud which extend off the ground, allowing them to reach otherwise unattainable heights in relative safety.

termitesLikewise, Formosan termites build carton or honeycomb-like structures that help retain moisture, enabling them to build nests that don’t require them to return to the surface for water.

Termite colonies can grow to incredible sizes with individuals sometimes numbering in the millions. Termite queens can often lay over 1,000 eggs per day. In late spring or early summer, Formosan termite colonies will produce swarms of winged males and females. These insects will, with luck, find a mate and some will proceed to found new colonies.

When termites infest a wooden structure, whether it’s a tree or a wooden support beam inside the home, they consume cellulose and extract nutrients from it, leaving behind smooth-sided galleries.

If you suspect that termites might be present in your home, keep a sharp eye out for sagging walls or ceilings, as these might be signs of severe and far-advance infestations.

termitesThe Formosan termite alone is responsible for upwards of $1 billion in damages in the United States every year. Their voracious appetites for wood mean that property damages are on the rise all across the south.
