RODENTS


  • Large cities spend thousands of dollars to control the rat populations around both commercial and residential neighborhoods.
  • It is estimated that the U.S. rat population is at least one per person.
  • The meaning of the word “rodent” is “to gnaw” and rodents are well equipped to carry out this activity.
  • Rodents are not native to the United States. They came over on ships from Europe with early explorers and settlers. Once in the new world they multiplied and infested the entire continent.
  • Rodents carry and spread diseases. These diseases include: plague, salmonellosis, leptospirosis, hantaviriruses, and rickettsial pox. They also carry fleas which can spread diseases.
  • Rodents consume and contaminate significant numbers of the world’s food supply every year. Rodents cause extensive damage to properties by gnawing on wood and wiring, often causing fires. Rat burrows can cause structural damage and disrupt sewer lines.
  • The House Mouse is found throughout the United States. They are omnivores, feeding on cereal grains, seeds, fruits, vegetables, and meats. Seed is the preferred food. They eat at multiple sites eating small amounts at each site. (20-30 sites per day) Daily consumption is about 1/10 of an ounce leaving the balance contaminated.
  • Mice are sexually mature as early as 6 to 10 weeks old and may breed year-round. In perfect conditions, a nest of mice can deposit 18,000 droppings and produce 2,500 heirs in a six-month period.
  • The female will have an average of eight litters per season with an average of six pups per litter. At five weeks old, the pups are capable of mating. It is not unusual for a female to be lactating her young and pregnant with a new litter.
  • Rodents are omnivorous. They feed on grain, seeds, fruits, vegetables and meats. Rats, especially, love to hang out in sewers and around garbage.




ANTS

  • Ants are common insects, but they have some unique capabilities. More than 10,000 known ant species occur around the world. They are especially prevalent in tropical forests, where they may be up to half of all the insects living in some locations.
  • Ants look much like termites, and the two are often confused—especially by nervous homeowners. However, ants have a narrow "waist" between the abdomen and thorax, which termites do not. Ants also have large heads, elbowed antennae, and powerful jaws. These insects belong to the order Hymenoptera, which includes wasps and bees.
  • Enthusiastically social insects, ants typically live in structured nest communities that may be located underground, in ground-level mounds, or in trees. Carpenter ants nest in wood and can be destructive to buildings. Some species, such as army ants, defy the norm and do not have permanent homes, instead seeking out food for their enormous colonies during periods of migration.
  • Ant communities are headed by a queen or queens, whose function in life is to lay thousands of eggs that will ensure the survival of the colony. Workers (the ants typically seen by humans) are wingless females that never reproduce, but instead forage for food, care for the queen's offspring, work on the nest, protect the community, and perform many other duties.
  • Male ants often have only one role—mating with the queen. After they have performed this function, they may die.
  • Ants communicate and cooperate by using chemicals that can alert others to danger or lead them to a promising food source. They typically eat nectar, seeds, fungus, or insects. However, some species have diets that are more unusual. Army ants may prey on reptiles, birds, or even small mammals

TERMITES

  • Termites are known as "silent destroyers" because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. There are about 2,000 known termite species in the world. Each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage.
  • Drywood termites form colonies of up to 2,500 members. Drywood termite colonies don’t have workers. Younger termites, called "false workers", do all the work for the colony.

  • Size: 3/8" Shape: Long, narrow, oval Color: Light brown
  • Legs: 6
  • Wings: Yes
  • Antenna: Yes
  • Common Name: Drywood termite
  • Kingdom: Animalia
  • Phylum: Arthropoda

  • Order: Isoptera
  • Family: Kalotermitidae
  • Species: Varies
  • Diet:
  • Drywood termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.
  • Habitat:
  • Drywood termite colonies are usually found in dry wood and they do not require moisture or contact with the soil.
  • Impact:
  • Drywood termites can build nests and dig tunnels in buildings. These tunnels cause major damage because the wooden support beams can become weak and make the building lean or fall down.
  • Prevention:
  • Make sure firewood and scrap wood is stored away from your house.
  • Seal all cracks and crevices around the outside 
  • --
  • Subterranean termite colonies can have up to 2 million members! Their colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers and reproductives.
  • Size: 1/8" to 1"
  • Shape: Long, narrow, oval

  • Legs: 6

  • Antenna: Yes
  • Common Name: Subterranean termite
  • Kingdom: Animalia

  • Class: Insecta
  • Order: Isoptera
  • Family: Rhinotermitidae
  • Species: Varies
  • Diet:
  • Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.
  • Habitat:
  • Subterranean termites need contact with the soil to survive. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas aboveground. They build tunnels to reach food and every spring, groups of reproductive termites fly off to start new colonies.
  • Impact:
  • Subterranean termites are the most destructive kind of termite. They can eat a lot of wood and they can cause a lot of expensive damage to a house! They can destroy building foundations, wooden support beams, plastic plumbing pipes, sub-flooring, insulation … even swimming pool liners and filtration systems! Termites can also injure or destroy living trees and shrubs.
  • Prevention:
  • Make sure water drains away from your house.
  • Don’t let water build up around your home's foundation. Termites like that!
  • Replace any damp or damaged wood on the outside of your home.
  • Never leave wood scraps in the yard for them to snack on. of your home.

FAQ'S

Q:  I keep my home clean. Why do I have bugs?

A:  Cleanliness is helpful to us in eliminating pests for you. However, cleanliness alone cannot assure that you won’t get bugs. Some bugs hitch a ride in on groceries, outdoor sporting gear, or even on you clothing. Once inside, many pests can find plenty to eat in the cleanest home.

Q:  Is that stuff safe?

A:  This is a loaded question. “Safe” is a relative term. Water is not only safe, but a necessity of life if used correctly. Our materials have been rigorously tested to be effective and safe to use according to each product’s label which is approved by the EPA. And, our technicians have been trained to follow safety procedures
