Ant Control

A vigorous colony of ants can be difficult to control no matter what. Your best bet is to locate the colony and treat it directly. Most people try boric acid baits. Even though the ants feed on the bait and die, boric acid simply does not kill fast enough to control a mature ant colony.

Most people make the mistake of using liquid bug spray in conjunction with ant bait. You see, the bug spray sold in stores are pyrethroids, which are repellents by nature. These sprays contaminate ant bait placement, often for an entire month! Even by spraying the exterior foundation, you can risk contaminating a coinciding bait placement in the kitchen!

Cockroach Control

There are a few different species of cockroaches that are found in Cleveland, OH. German cockroaches are the most common. This is a tropical species. It is considered an interior pest that hitchhikes to new places. Most people blame their neighbors for giving them cockroaches. Yet they are usually imported into the home hiding in cardboard produce boxes.

Since German cockroach carcasses can cause allergies for members of the household; vacuuming and trapping is by far the best method of control. It is best not to spray German cockroaches. The proper placement of bait is known to be far more effective. Sanitation efforts and eliminating the cockroaches’ source of water should be used in conjuction with these control options. By removing all water sources each night before bed, you can crash a German cockroach population dramatically without the use of pesticides.

Bed Bug Control

Bed bugs are becoming more common because the treatment process is very detailed. People who cannot afford a professional treatment rarely succeed on their own. It takes much more than buying the kits or foggers at the store. Bed bugs are so resistant to these pesticides that many of them will survive DIY treatments.

It can take anywhere from 1-5 hours to initially perform a proper bed bug treatment. That doesn’t include the preparation required to perform the treatment! You can spend hours on end scanning the internet for a magic bullet. Not many people think to spend those hours scanning their bedrooms instead.

Bed Bug Control

Spider Control

Most spiders do not have fangs large enough to pierce our skin. Spiders hang around, or run around, hunting down bothersome insects. Yet they are not often tolerated inside of a home; even the teeny tiny ones. You may think you have a brown recluse spider problem. There is a 1 in 8000 chance that an Ohio resident has a brown recluse spider in their home.

Spiders have soft bodies and are easy destroyed by hand, book or newspaper. Vacuums help too. Gaps around window air conditioners allow them to enter the living space. They sneak in around utility holes in the foundation, gaps around basement windows, cracks in the foundation or underneath the bottom lip of siding. For ongoing issues, seal your house. Spiders outside, especially by the lake can be minimized by pulling the curtains at night so your lights do not attract nocturnal flying insects. Using yellow bug lights, or motion detector lights outside help too.

Spider Control

Flea Control

Flea control can be very complex for pet owners due to the fact that they do not know the flea’s lifecycle. Fleas go through complete metamorphosis, similar to a butterfly. Flea larvae hide deep in carpet fibers. Once inside the woven fibers of their cocoons, they are nearly indestructable against any pesticide.

Fleas can be picked up just about anywhere.Therefore don’t you think its a good idea to target the flea-infested wildlife or feral cats in the yard? Flea bombs are a common household control for fleas. While vacuuming is a splendid tool, it can be a time consuming method and laborious method.

Flea Control

Pantry Moth Control

Pantry moths can become a re-occurring issue in many homes. While they are mainly found infesting kitchen areas, hidden sources are often at play. A cache of rodent food stored in some obscure location will breed these Indian meal moths. Bird’s nests too. Bird seed, old pet food, potpourri, and so many more items can be overshadowed by the highly contaminated oatmeal container or the old bag of pecans from baking last Christmas.

Finding all of the sources and removing them is the only real way to control them. Pheremone traps work but they might also act as a magnet, drawing them in from outside. There are not many sprays labeled for use around the food that they infest. Placing potential food sources for these moths in zippered storage bags help. Items that are not to be thrown away can alternatively be put into the freezer for 10 days. this will kill any developing moths. Pantry moth larvae are white with a tan colored face. They are often seen crawling up walls.

Fruit Fly Control

Fruit flies are small moths that are often imported into a structure with certain fruits. Cantaloupe melon, peaches, avocado, mango, and most importantly bananas are often to blame. Once inside, they seek out other sources of decaying moist organic matter. Commercial kitchens that lack sanitation can be quickly overrun by these pests. Getting the kitchen properly cleaned and implementing better sanitation practices into the daily routine is essential. Simply bug bombing the place will not do much good. People often fail to realize that fly infestations are a sanitation issue that can take considerable time and effort to properly remediate.

Fruit fly traps may grab up any hitchhiking fruit flies when new produce enters the home, they should not be used to control them. Fruit flies will begin laying their eggs in the scummy organic matter that lines drains. Repeatedly treating drains with a biological drain cleaner helps tremendously if you can locate the drain(s) as a source. Sticky traps with a pheremone placed around the room and over drains can help determine the source.

Stinging Insect Control

Stinging insects are one of the most feared insect pests. Yet at the same time, bees, wasps, and hornets are very beneficial insects. In fact, not many people notice them unless they are swarming the home or dive bombing your pop can at a late summer picnic. Nonetheless tolerance is quite low, especially for those with allergies to the sting.

German yellowjackets cause the most alarm. This foreign species is the most likely to colonize in structural wall voids. Difficult to control using over the counter products. Yellowjacket traps will not trap them. Wasp and hornet aerosol sprayed into an entry hole is quickly absorbed by the structural components of a building. Not many people realize this. After frustration grows from many failed control attempts, some people resort to plugging the entry hole. A mature yellowjacket nest can consist of 2000 workers. Do you really want to plug that hole?
