Black Widow Spiders In Maryland

Black Widow Spiders In MarylandThe spider has an unfortunate knack for being regarded with fear and squeamishness by people.

Do You Have Bedbugs?

Do You Have BedbugsContrary to popular perception, the presence of bedbugs in a structure is not actually a reflection on the cleanliness of a home, hotel or building. Bedbugs are not inherently attracted to dirty places, and any location, whether it’s a mansion or a cottage, can play host to bedbugs because they are not looking for dirt, mold or brackish water to live in, they are looking for blood.

As the name suggests, the Tiger Mosquito actually comes from Asia, but made its first appearance in the continental USA in 1985. Since then, it has spread to many other areas of the country, and Maryland is one of those regions that this new species now calls home. Unfortunately, unlike its local cousins, the Tiger Mosquito in some ways is more adaptable, and better suited to the Maryland region than the native insects. Continue reading

The Termite Maryland Should Really Worry About

The Termite Maryland Should Really Worry AboutThere are many different kinds of termites that can be found all over the continental USA, but the kind of termites in different regions changes based on the temperature and the availability of suitable food sources. The termites of Texas, for example, would never survive here in the Maryland area for the simple reason that they need warm, constant temperature throughout the year, and our Maryland winters would be lethal. Maryland does have its own brand of termite to contend with, however, and in some ways, they can be trickier to deal with than their more delicate southern cousins. Continue reading

Termite Control: Treatment & Baiting

Termite Control Treatment & BaitingTermite infestations can be incredibly damaging in any structure, whether it is a residence or workplace. The wood eating nature of these insects causes billions of dollars in damage in the USA every year.
