Roaches

Cockroaches have evolved little in the millions of years they have been around. They are typically found or occur in groups or nests. They will feed on practically anything edible. Besides being a nuisance, they can cause substantial problems with your family's health. They can carry many common disease pathogens including: Salmonella, Staph, Strep, Coliform, Bacillus, and Clostridium. Additionally, they can spread E Coli, Shigella (dysentery), and Hepititus B antigen. They prefer dark, warm, and moist environments with a food source. Typically, you can find fecal matter (black pepper or sand like in appearance) in and around their harborages.

 

Treatment: 

Treatment includes inspection for sanitation, repair, and maintenance issues as well as flushing them from their harborages. Application can include liquid insecticides, baits, and dusting. Follow up treatments are important with this resilient pest.

Ants

Ants are social insects. They live in colonies usually in the ground but occasionally indoors. They feed on just about anything but are drawn to sweets and proteins. An ant has 3 segments: Head, Thorax, and Abdomen. There are 700+ species, so recognition of your particular ant is of importance to your technician. Mature ants regurgitate food to feed their larvae. Most harborage sites are located near a water source.

 

Treatment: 

Treatment includes identifying species, indentifying the route of infiltration, locating nest or colony, and applying pesticide appropriately. Application can include liquid insecticides, baits, and granules. Follow up treatments are important with this pest.

Spiders

There are approximately 3000 species of spiders in North America and over 35k worldwide. All spiders are predators that use venom to kill their prey. They mainly feed on insects and arthropods. Only 2 groups of spiders are considered dangerous to humans: Widows and Recluse. There are several species of both. Webs, egg sacks, and dead prey are evidence of a spider's presence. Clutter, trimmings, clippings, and debris are all areas that spiders might occupy. They are usually active at night and prefer dark spaces and crevices under ledges or counters.

 

Treatment: 

Treatment includes identifying species (which may have to be done at night as spiders are nocturnal) and applying pesticide appropriately. Application can include liquid pesticides, wettable powders, and dusting. Web and egg sack removal is standard during this treament as well.
