How To Find Out If You Have Bedbugs

How To Find Out If You Have BedbugsThere have been a few stories—especially out of New York—concerning themselves with bedbugs taking over homes, and infesting hotels. There’s a reason to be concerned, bedbugs aren’t like ants or spiders that are simply doing their own thing in or near your home. Bedbugs feed on humans, and while the bed is the most common area for them to inhabit (we don’t move as much, as thus make an easier meal) they can spread to many other areas of the home.

The Dangerous Visitor: The Brown Recluse

However, there is another much rarer, but occasional threat that comes to our state from the southwest, and that is the Brown Recluse spider. Like the Black Widow, it’s a venomous spider, however it’s not as a venomous as the Maryland native. That still doesn’t mean you can safely provoke it just for fun. There are a few things you should be careful of when it comes to this out-of-state visitor. Continue reading

What Happens If I Have Bees?

What Happens If I Have BeesThe bee is one of the most industrious insects in the animal kingdom, and one of the most useful to humans. The honeybee in particular is especially favored, although all bees are important to our ecosystem for pollinating flowers and ensuring the continued growth of plant life. But while seeing the occasional bee in the garden is not just harmless, but encouraging for the health of local plant life, discovering a beehive can be more of a problem, especially if you have animals or children.

Exterminate Roaches With Professionals

exterminate roachesThe roach is one of the great survivors of the animal kingdom, with traits like its small size and short lifespan actually working in its favor when it comes to the survival of the species as a whole. It may be very easy to kill an individual roach, but collectively these insects have managed to successfully integrate into nearly every environment on Earth, including the urban environments of people. It’s not inaccurate to say that humans, with their large deposits of food and shelter all in one convenient place, have actually been helpful in nurturing the roach population, and that’s why they are one of the more challenging insects to tackle.

How Bad Are Roaches In The Home?

exterminate roachesThe roach or cockroach is similar to the rat in that it’s been living alongside humans for as long as humans have been around.

When they’re blown up in size in film and television to be as big as a person, the alien nature of their appearance in comparison to ourselves and favorite pets is terrifying. But as monstrous as spiders may appear to be, in reality, most of them are quite small, and while it’s true that some of them are venomous, just how harmful are spiders to people? Continue reading

Then there’s the tick, which doesn’t seem like it would be a big problem, and most of the time, it isn’t. But it’s those rare instances when an infestation becomes significant that you’ll probably want some professional help. Continue reading
