Cockroaches Control Without Exterminator – pestwiki.com


Written by Admin, Published on September 5th, 2018

Cockroaches are an unsightly and embarrassing problem. Nobody wants to turn on a light at night and discover a host of insects in their home. But roaches are not only unpleasant to live with. They are also associated with a number of health risks and unpleasant consequences when they take up residence in your house.

Cockroaches can contaminate your food, dishes, silverware, and food preparation surfaces, because they often defecate and regurgitate on their food. They can leave a trail of contaminants behind them as they roam around nightly, looking for food. In this way, bacteria and parasites that are carried by the roaches can be transmitted to humans, increasing the risk of urinary tract infections, sepsis, and digestive disorders in people. The presence of cockroaches also increases the risk of illness from food poisoning.

Cockroaches are a common allergen among people. Cockroach saliva, faces, and the body parts they shed when molting are all common sources of allergies. Cockroach allergies can trigger asthma attacks and flu-like symptoms in people, and children are more susceptible than adults.

Roaches like to hide and nest in warm, dark areas. Their ability to squeeze into tiny crevices means that they can easily take up residence inside electronics that generate warmth. Home electronic devices that are always on, like internet routers, clock radios, and televisions, are attractive homes for roaches, who can then affect delicate wiring inside the device.

While we often associate cockroach infestations with homes that are dirty and poorly kept, the truth is that these resourceful, hardy insects can take up residence anywhere. Even though we can find the problem embarrassing, there is nothing to be ashamed of, and cockroaches are not an indication of poor housekeeping.

Unfortunately, not everyone who has cockroaches is able to use a professional exterminator. Professional exterminators are expensive, and sometimes, even if you can afford their services, they cant come treat your home right away. But there are a number of ways to kill cockroaches and protect your heath and home even without the services of a professional.

If you have roaches and need to get rid of them without an exterminator, its common to find yourself looking at cans of commercial pesticides in the aisle of your local grocery or hardware store.

Many commercial cans of bug spray do kill roaches on contact, and they can create a toxic barrier against future roaches. However, many roaches are resistant to the chemicals found in common sprays, and its possible that, while a spray may kill adult roaches, it becomes less effective against their hatching eggs.

Bombs and foggers are often sold as a cheap exterminator for roaches. These devices work by spraying a fine pesticide mist into the air, filling a room and then gradually settling onto surfaces. Despite what the label may say, these devices arent very effective at controlling a roach infestation, because roaches hide in tiny cracks and crevices, and can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes. Bombs and foggers are more effective against flying insects than on roaches.

Some baited traps are simply adhesive traps, like flypaper. While these will certainly trap and kill adult roaches, they do nothing to control an infestation. It is more effective to use poisonous traps, because the roach will ingest the poison and then scurry back to their nest. Cockroaches are cannibals, so if the poisoned roach dies, there is a strong likelihood that other roaches will eat it and will themselves become poisoned.

Depending on the chemical composition of your commercial pesticide, there are health issues to be aware of. Although these products are generally safe for adults, children, and pets, they should still be handled with caution. Store them safely away from children or pets. Dont use the product in an area where children or pets are likely to breathe or ingest it, such as near pet food areas or on carpets where children might be crawling. If you use a fogger or bomb, thoroughly clean all food surfaces, dishes, silverware, etc. afterward. Always follow all the manufacturers instructions for safe use, storage, and disposal of the product.

If you have been looking for a cheap exterminator for roaches, and want to best protect children and pets, you may have read a number of all-natural DIY remedies online. Unfortunately, many of them do not work. Here are some of the old wives tales that are supposed to get rid of roaches, but actually have almost no effect:

The idea behind many of these natural cockroach remedies is that cockroaches dont like the smell and are repelled by them, which simply isnt true. Fabric softener, soap, and other methods intended to block their breathing and drown them are sometimes effective against living adult roaches, but do nothing to control the infestation.

However, there are some natural DIY roach killing methods that really do work to kill roaches. Here are the best ones:

Diatomaceous earth is a fine powder that is microscopically sharp and abrasive. When roaches walk through it, it sticks to their waxy skin, and scratches and abrades their exoskeleton. It not only causes them to lose moisture through their skin, but it absorbs moisture as well, and kills roaches through dehydration.

Baking soda is highly alkaline. When combined with a tasty companion to make a bait to get roaches to eat it, it reacts with their stomach acid to expand inside their bodies and kills them from the inside out.

Borax can be used as a powder, where it functions much like diatomaceous earth, or used to create a bait, where it interferes with digestion and kills roaches. Borax is also highly effective because when roaches eat their dead companion, they ingest the toxic borax and are killed in turn. Borax is one of the most effective roach killing methods because it can be used to kill roaches two ways, and has long-lasting effects both on adults that are out where they can be seen, and on roaches hidden in the nest.

These three methods have multiple advantages over commercial sprays and bombs:

In fact, these methods are so effective that they are often recommended by professional exterminators.

To use borax or diatomaceous earth to kill roaches by dehydration and abrasion:

Both of these cockroach killers come in the form of a fine powder. Its important to use them in a way that encourages the roaches to walk through them, rather than around them. A light, fine dust will be more effective than a thick wall of powder.

Of course, cockroaches wont be attracted to eat baking soda or borax alone; it needs to be combined with something attractive, in order to lure them to the bait and disguise it enough for them to eat it. Cockroaches are also attracted to moisture, so its better to mix it into a paste than to lure them with a powdery mixture alone.

While many sources online recommend sugar to bait a roach trap, its worth rethinking this method. Cockroaches actually prefer starchy foods over sugary ones. In fact, studies are showing that roaches may be gradually losing their taste for sugary foods and therefore avoiding common bait traps. Sugary baits can also be a potential attractor for small children and some pets. For those reasons, the best attractants are starches like flour or cornstarch, which will attract cockroaches without attracting other residents of the household.

To make your bait:

While these methods are highly effective, you may need to make an ongoing effort to control cockroaches. If you live in an apartment building or highly urban area with a large cockroach population, they may continue to occasionally find their way inside your home even after you have eliminated your original population.

Before, during, and after a cockroach infestation, there are a few things you can do to make your home less appealing to cockroaches.

While even the cleanest homes can become infested with roaches, cleaning always helps. Thoroughly cleaning everything, including inside cabinets, drawers, and beneath appliances not only removes stray crumbs and food particles that attract roaches, but it also removes their feces and saliva. These microscopic roach traces can attract roaches by indicating that its a roach-friendly environment. Deep cleaning can also help you identify where roaches are nesting and where to concentrate your extermination efforts.

Roaches can compress their bodies and squeeze into the smallest cracks and crevices, so its almost impossible to completely prevent roaches from entering from the outside. However, its worth taking a close look at cracks and crevices near floors and baseboards, between the boards in hardwood floors, and in grout seams near tub and tiled areas. Consider using sealers or grout to reduce these small openings where roaches like to hide and nest.

For food stored in cupboards and pantries, removing it from store packaging like boxes and plastic bags, and storing it instead in tightly sealed plastic tubs or canisters can help prevent roaches from getting inside your stored food. This reduces a cockroachs food supply and also helps prevent your food from being contaminated.

Roaches can live for nearly a month without food, but only a week or so without water. Examine your home for sources of water and control them. While there isnt much that can be done to mitigate water in drains, inside faucets, and inside toilets, you can try to reduce and control standing water and moisture in your home.

Dont overwater houseplants and leave standing water in plant pots. Dont soak dishes in standing water in the sink. Control condensation and moisture by allowing the inside of a shower stall or dishwasher to thoroughly dry between uses, and control moisture that may accumulate or leak near pipes and drains.

These methods will make your roach killing methods more effective by helping to better target your pesticides and make your bait more attractive. The good news is that these kind of prevention measures may also make your home more energy-efficient, reduce mold and mildew, and make it less attractive to other pests like ants and mice.

Its possible to effectively reduce, control, and prevent cockroaches in your home without an expensive exterminator. Even better, its possible to eliminate cockroaches in a way that is safe and natural for children and pets.

Rat Exterminators: How to Hire a Professional and NOT Get …


Written by Dikshit Aryal, Published on September 5th, 2018

Have you got a rat problem and dont want to deal with it yourself? If so then you are going to need to hire a rat exterminator.

Sometimes it is better to call a professional than tackle a project like this yourself. Exterminators often will have access to different types of rat poison, fumigants and cleaning supplies that are unavailable to retail consumers.

You should do a little research before hiring someone though and this is a step people often skip because they are already upset about having a rat problem.

This article covers how to select a rat exterminator, how much they cost and what type of service you should expect.

Pest control companies LOVE to put homeowners onto monthly or quarterly service contracts. For a service like termite prevention a service contract makes a lot of sense. For something like rat removal a service contract is a complete rip off.

A competent exterminator will be able to solve your rat problem PERMANTLY over the course of two weeks. There is no need for an exterminator to come back if they have done their job properly.

It is also important to realize that most pest control companies make most of their money dealing with insects such as termites and ants.

Rats and insects have nothing in common.

Killing smart rodents and keeping new ones from moving in requires a completely different skill set than spraying chemicals for ants.

Ideally you want to work with a Certified Wildlife Removal Specialist to get rid of your rats. A Certified Wildlife Removal Expert will understand the need to perform repairs and eliminate attractants in addition to killing the rats.

Not all pest control companies employee Certified Wildlife Removal Specialists and there may not be one in your area. In this case you will to ask some questions to see if they know what they are doing.

Here are a few questions you should ask a pest control company before they come to your house.

I cant tell you exactly how much an exterminator will cost in your area but.it is reasonable to pay about $500 for the services.

Here is an overview of what a professional exterminator will do to earn that much money.

There will be an initial on site inspection that will require the exterminator to crawl around your attic or under your house. They will need to estimate the size of the problem and identify how the rats are getting into your home. This process may require them to access your roof. The entire inspection can take about an hour to perform.

Next, the rat exterminator will set out about a dozen traps. A good exterminator will use brand new traps and dispose of them when they are done at your house. Rats carry many diseases and it is a bad idea to reuse rat traps from one location to another.

Determining where to place the traps and then setting them will take about another hour.

The exterminator will leave and come back in two or three days to check the traps. They will remove the dead rats and set more traps.

This process will be repeated two or three more times until no more rats are caught in the traps.

In addition to setting traps the exterminator should be identifying how the rats are getting into your home and performing minor repairs to fix any holes or gaps in the structure.

A exterminator will typically spend 10-15 hours (including travel) performing the initial assessment, killing the rats and performing repairs.

Carpenter ants in Chicago best ant pest control exterminator


Written by Admin, Published on July 23rd, 2018

The biomass of ants on the planet outweighs that of humans, soits no surprise that ants account for more pest controlcomplaints than any other insect. Landmarks technicians can make all the difference between success and failure because they are specially trained to control ant infestationsat their source.

Landmark pinpointsthe colonys food, water, and harborage, identifies structural deficiencies, and seals up access points. Our green methodology utilizes baits tailored to the way ants feed. Our methods targetthe colonys queen because without her the colony cannot survive.

The four most prolific species of ant in Illinois are Odorous House ants, Carpenter ants, Pharaoh ants,and Pavement ants. Ants are a social species of insect and live in communities that consist of at least one queen, many female workers, and a few males.

Antsdiffer in their behavior, habits, and biology. When assessing any ant infestation, it is important to work with a Landmark professional who can assess the infestation by first properly identifying the infesting species.

This ant species can be easily identified by its signature odor. When crushed, the Odorous House ant gives off a scent that some people think is reminiscent of turpentine, while others have described it as smelling like ammonia. These ants are very small, about 1/10th inch in length. This species can be difficult to control because its colonies generally contain multiple egg laying queens, resulting in vast numbers of ants which spread when part of the colony breaks off, or buds to form its own colony, or when part of the colony decides to swarm.

Despite their name, Carpenter ants do not actually consume wood. Rather, they hollow it out to form tunnels and chambers where they can nest.Carpenter ants may be up to a half an inch in length, but typically, these insects range from 1/16th to 1/8th inches in length. The most common color of Carpenter ant is black. They have large mandibles that can deliver a painful bite. Other distinguishing characteristics of the Carpenter ant include a single bump on their waist called a node. Popular Carpenter ant nesting sites include fence posts, firewood piles, decaying trees, porches, roofing, sub-flooring, doors, wall voids,insulation, and around water sources like tubs, dishwashers, showers and sinks.

The Pharaoh ant is orange-brown to yellow in color witha transparent or yellowish tint, about 1/16th inch long, and has two nodes on its waist. Despite their small size, Pharaoh ant colonies can contain thousands of members with multiple queens. Unlike other ant species, Pharaoh ants dont swarm. Instead they engage in a process known as budding in which a part of the colony will break off and migrate when the colony comes under stress. Pharaoh ant colonies can also be difficult to find because colony members can range more than 150 feet from their nest. These behaviors can make Pharaoh ants particularly difficult to treat without proper experience or professionaltools.

The Pavement ant is most easily identified by parallel lines visible on the top of its head and thorax. About 1/16th inch long, the Pavement ant has pale legs and antennae and ranges in color from red-brown to black. Pavement ants prefer to develop their colonies beneath rocks or in pavement cracks, excavating sand from crevices in asphalt and concrete. This helps to control the climate and airflow in the colony. Pavement ants can infest insulation, walls, and floors and are often seen under rocks and stones. They may enter structures through small cracks and crevices.

To facilitate the establishing of new colonies, queen and male ants develop wings. They are called alates after this happens. These queens and males fly away from the colony to reproduce and start colonies of their own.

Because they are similar in size and color, alate ants are frequently misidentified as termites. To tell the difference between these species, one should look at the body shape. An ants waist is pinched which creates three separate body segments its antennae are bent, and it has a set of double wings that are unequal in length. Termite bodies are straight, their antennae are straight, and their set of double wings are equal in length.

Ant Control: Pest Control for Ants by Arrow Exterminators


Written by Dikshit Aryal, Published on July 12th, 2018

Ant Infestations

An army of ants can easily ruin a nice picnic in the spring, but its much more frustrating when you catch them crawling around in the kitchen. Ants can infiltrate homes very easily through cracks in the wall or exposed wires. Once they find a way in, these pesky bugs search for sweets, meats, breads and other foods in your kitchen. They can contaminate your food and sneak around other areas of your home, such as sinks, showers and dishwashers.

There are many different species of ants that can infiltrate your home, and a licensed pest control expert is the most effective way to get rid of an ant invasion. Our ant exterminators can identify your specific ant problem and find the best way to control them.

Here are some of the common ant species to watch out for:

Carpenter Ants

These reddish-black bugs love to nest outdoors and find a way into homes through damaged wood, cracks in the wall or holes in wires. This species of ant is particularly intrusive. They love to hunt for sweets like honey and jelly, and hang around damp areas of your home, such as dishwashers, sinks and showers.

Carpenter ants are a nuisance because they can cause severe property damage by tunneling through the structural wood of your home. Stay ahead with licensed ant control to avoid and eliminate this harmful species.

Ghost Ants

The top part of this ant (the head and thorax) is black, while the bottom part of their body (the gaster) is white. These nasty little guys like to nest outdoors in mulch, rocks and tree bark. But dont be surprised if you catch these ants crawling around in potted plants, breadboxes or cabinets.

If you start to notice ant trails and mounds outside, there is a very good possibility that ghost ants will invade your home, especially the kitchen. A roommate who drinks out of the milk carton is bad enough, but ghost ants take it a step up by digging into sugary goods while leaving excrements and molted skin along the way. But dont worry, a professional ant exterminator can take care of sending out eviction letters.

Odorous House Ants

These dark brown bugs infiltrate your home through exposed soil and will camp out in cracked walls or under the floors of your home. They have also been known to enter through heaters, bath drains or wood damaged by termites.

Although they dont cause structural damage or carry any kind of pathogen, these ants easily contaminate food. If youre wondering why they are called odorous, its because if they are crushed, they give off a rotten, coconut-like smell. Proactive ant control is paramount to protect your home from these smelly pests.

Pharaoh Ant

A small, light brown species that is notorious for invading the indoors, pharaoh ants forage through intricate trail routes guided by pheromones. They hide out in hard-to-reach places such as wall voids, under floors or behind baseboards. They also like to hang around kitchens and bathrooms near a damp water source.

Due to their small size, they can sneak around unnoticed on countertops and baseboards. They search for a variety of foods, including fats, sweets and even toothpaste. Their nests are hard to find, and they prefer to live behind the scenes in the dark. But the professionals at Arrow can handle any ant extermination issue even these evasive buggers.

Red Imported Fire Ant

Were sure youve had an unpleasant meeting with at least one of these reddish-brown ants. They build nest mounds around your property and easily gain entry to your home through holes and cracks. These bugs love arid climates in the Southeast and are one of the most aggressive species of ants.

The real concern for homeowners with fire ants is their painful bites, which typically cause itchy, white pustules within 24 hours. If you find a mound in your yard, call us for a thorough ant control solution.

The Arrow Solution

Ants can contaminate food, damage structures and even give you painful, itchy bites. Contact Arrow Exterminators for professional ant control. We will identify which species of ant has entered your home and implement one of our proven methods to eliminate your ant problem for good.

There are a few things you can do to help prevent ant mounds from developing in your yard: remove standing water around your property, trim tree branches touching your home and make sure firewood is not stored next to your property. And if ants have already taken up residence in your kitchen or bathrooms, we make ant control and elimination simple. Contact Arrow Exterminators today and let us take care of your pest problem.

2018 Average Bed Bug Exterminator Cost (with Price Factors)


Written by Admin, Published on July 6th, 2018

Bed bug extermination is available for homes, offices, multiunit properties and commercial spaces. Professionals can perform inspections, one-time removal or termination and recurring bed bug control services, as well as provide recommendations on preventive measures. Bed bug infestations can affect one bed in one room or an entire home or property. Extermination can take place whether a space is occupied or vacant. Several factors affect the cost of bed bug extermination.

Exterminators often have a set rate they charge per room that includes extermination services for a light to moderate infestation and treatment of a standard amount of furniture. The more rooms that need treatment, the higher the overall cost. Alamo Pest Management in Fort Worth, Texas, generally charges $250 per 10x15-foot bedroom for a light to moderate infestation.

The more rampant the bed bug infestation, the higher the cost per room. The higher cost accounts for an increased amount of product needed as well as additional employee time on the job. Alamo Pest Management charges $300$400 per bedroom with a standard amount of furniture and a heavy infestation, which is $50$150 more than services for a light to moderate infestation. The company also provides "peace of mind" services for $200 per room where there is little to no bedbug activity, but the owners want the room treated as prevention.

The more furniture in an infested room, the higher the cost. For example, Alamo Pest Management charges $50 per piece of additional furniture in a bedroom beyond the standard bed, two nightstands and dresser. Extra furniture might include a futon or second dresser. Each additional piece can add 3060 minutes to the time it takes to treat a room and also requires more product.

If a home is messy or has a lot of clutter, the rate per room will be higher. According to Alamo Pest Management, clutter creates more work in two ways: One, employees have to sort through and clear the room to get the area ready to be treated, which takes more work and time. Two, more product is needed to spray all of the excess clutter. Alamo Pest Management charges $450 per bedroom with a standard bedroom set, heavy infestation, and large amount of clutter or obstacles.

If an entire home is infested, it may be necessary to spray under the house, which would increase the overall cost of services. Homes with pier-and-beam construction can harbor bed bugs underneath, and pros can dry dust the area to terminate colonies there. Slab homes (homes without any space between the home and the foundation) dont need this treatment. Alamo Pest Management charges a $50 minimum to dry dust under a pier-and-beam home.

Bed bug extermination companies may charge an hourly fee as opposed to a per room rate. Pest Solutions in Wappingers Falls, New York, for example, charges a base rate of $75 for 45 minutes of bedbug control services.

Because the factors involved in determining treatment are so complex, most bed bug extermination companies provide free, on-site quotes to give an accurate quote and treatment plan.
