CRAWLING INSECT CONTROL

Turn Your House Back Into a Home

Insects are thought to represent around 90% of the diversity of animal life on earth. There are over a million currently described species and an estimated 10 million species in total.

 

The majority of insects have wings in the adult stage and move around mainly by flying. Some insects, such as cockroaches, have wings but are reluctant flyers, preferring to crawl to find food and shelter. Termites and ants are mainly wingless, so most of their behaviour involves crawling, and produce ‘reproductives’ that are temporarily winged during a short breeding season.

 

Other insects, such as the flea and louse, are wingless and can only crawl or jump to move around. Crawling insects here refers to insects that are perceived as pests mainly due to their crawling behaviour.

Common Crawling Insects Include

Spider Pest Control


There are about 1,102 species of spiders found in the Australia. Only a few of these species are considered to have bites that are dangerous. In general, spiders are very shy creatures, usually living in protected areas, feeding on other insects. Spiders will not purposely attack people – bites most commonly occur while cleaning areas that disturb a spider’s web or nest. Most spider bites are not harmful to people, and those who are bitten only experience mild discomfort. In a few rare cases involving older adults and young children a spider bite can induce an allergic reaction, however only a few spiders like Black Widows and Brown Recluse spiders are known to have toxic venom that may cause medical problems. The best course of action is to seek medical treatment for any bite that results in prolonged discomfort or pain.




Ant Removal


Currently, there are more than 1,300 species of classified ants in Australia. Ants typically live in large colonies that can range from a few individuals to more than a million individuals. Ants invade homes to look for food left out by us and they prefer to nest in damp areas. In North America, the most common ant is the carpenter ant, which is commonly referred to as the household ant. Ant removal can vary depending on the type of ant in the home, and knowing which kind of ant you have is important in determining how best to remove them. There are, however, a few things you can do to try to eliminate ants on your own.




Cockroaches


There are at least five types of cockroaches that are common in Michigan: American, German, Oriental, Brown-Banded, and Wood Cockroaches. Out of the five species, the German Cockroach is the one to worry about as it likes indoor locations. However, American and Oriental Cockroaches may also be found indoors in areas that are very humid. Cockroaches contaminate food and eating utensils. They also destroy fabrics and papers leaving stains and odors behind. Beyond property damage, cockroaches can carry human pathogens like Salmonella and E. coli. For this reason, you should stay vigilant with prevention and removal efforts. Cockroaches need water and food to survive, so limiting their access to these resources can help. Washing dishes often, keeping food stored in sealed containers, and putting away pet food and water at night can help.




Flea Pest Control


Fleas are bloodsuckers; they are common in homes and affect pets and humans. Cat and dog fleas are the most common. Life span on dogs is typically more than 100 days — enough time for a pair of fleas and their descendants to produce millions of offspring. Even if you don’t have pets, people can carry fleas into your home. Some fleas transmit bacteria that cause serious diseases in humans and domestic animals. Cat and dog fleas tend to attack cats, dogs, humans, and rodents. One of the main concerns about cat and dog fleas is that they can carry tapeworms that could affect young children. Some people have bad reactions to bites, while other people hardly notice them. Children may be more sensitive to flea bites than older people. Irritation, itching and rashes may occur when bitten. Humans usually get a small, hard, red, slightly raised, itching spot with no swelling (as opposed to bites from other insects or spiders).




Bed Bugs


At CJ Pest services we understand the need of a good sleep don’t begin sleeping in another bed, on the sofa. Do not go to stay with someone else. The bugs may follow you to your guest room or sofa, and then it will be much harder to get rid of them. They may hitch a ride to your relative’s home, and you can cause them to become infested. Also, staying outside of your home means the bugs may become dormant. We know they may live without feeding for up to 18 months.

Some Interesting Facts About Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small insects that suck the blood of warm blood mammals such as animals and humans. We understand this has just started of extremely scary, we are sorry. At night, they crawl out to feed on people who are sleeping on beds and suck them for their blood. They can also bite and suck those who sit on upholstered furniture where the bugs exist. Bed bugs can survive a year without food so eliminating them can be quite a difficult task if not treated professionally.

How did bed bugs come to be prevalent in household and lodging, hotel, motel and hospital beds? One factor is attributed to exposure to different environments. Constant travellers can carry with them bed bugs without their knowledge on their clothing. Another main factor is due to low standards of hygiene and poor housekeeping habits. Unfortunately, it only takes a few weeks of mess to welcome this annoying pest into your home.

The fortunate thing is that the bites of bed bugs are painless, but they can be irritating to some people who are sensitive to their bites. They can even trigger allergic reactions in some. Though they are not believed to transport diseases and infections, they can cause itchy spots, skin rashes, discomfort and sleeplessness.

People who are bitten by bed bugs may not realize they were bitten at all. Those affected can experience swelling on the side of the bite in areas like the face, neck, arms and hands and the lower half of the body. Evidence or symptoms of bed bug infestation includes:

·Bloody stains on the bed sheets or blanet

·Dark-coloured fecal matter on the bed

·Hatched or un-hatched eggs on the bed or furniture

·Cast skins or outer shells

·Foul odour
