beeBees:The most common stinging bee in California is the honey bee. It was introduced into this country from Europe in the 17th century. Its stinger, which resembles a hypodermic needle with barbs, is used to inject a mixture of alkali venom and acid into the skin. The alkali venom contains several kinds of proteins and enzymes which are believed to cause allergic reactions of varying degrees in humans. We provide bee control services such as bee extermination and bee hive removal. Leaving the Honey comb will result in future and immediate problems.

ratRats:The fact about rats is that they are everywhere and not easy to control, unless you are a professional. Specifications for rats can vary. The length of an average rat is from 6-18 inches that's including their tail. Roof rats tend to be charcoal gray in color as compared to your sewer rat which is a brownish tan. Their diet consists of eating almost everything, its not much of a diet. They consume ½ to 2oz of liquid a day. These are nocturnal creatures they eat and drink under the cover of darkness. They are loud and gnaw at anything they can, rats have been known to cause electrical fires in homes by exposed electrical wires in attics. Rats are the cause of much damage and carriers of parasites and diseases.

pigeonsPigeons:
Pigeons mate for life and rear their broods together, although if one dies the other will take a new mate. Once the simple nest is built, the female lays an egg and then another a day or so later. The incubation period for common pigeons is 17 to 19 days. The female sits on the egg from late afternoon through the night until about 10AM. The male then takes over and does the day shift. Once the eggs hatch, both parents feed the young squabs. The first food is pigeon milk or crop milk, a cheesy substance that appears in the crops of the parents at hatching time and is fed for a week or so. Then the adults start regurgitating partially digested grains for the young. By the time the squabs are ready to fly, about 4 weeks, the father is doing most of the feeding. The squabs are fed for another week to 10 days after they are free-flying.

batsBats:
Bats, while some species can be larger, bats are usually not much bigger than a house mouse. The wingspan of the two most common Canadian species, the little brown bat and the big brown bat, ranges from 8 to 14 inches. Bats will mate in fall or winter and the pups are usually weaned in July or August. A few bat species will migrate to the south when cold weather approaches while other species will just move to caves, mines, and attics where the temperature does not go below the freezing point. In some cases, the big brown bat will even roost in buildings throughout the winter if conditions are favorable, e.g. high humidity level and temperature above the freezing point. Bats are loyal to their birthplaces, often returning to the same roost site year after year. A bat can live more than 10 years.

swallowSwallows:
Swallows feed on insects and spend a large part of each day in the air catching flies, beetles, and mosquitoes. Their long, pointed wings give them great speed and maneuverability. Normally, swallows are not seen on the ground except when collecting mud for their nests. Most do not have musical voices but only twitter or squeak.
The cliff swallow is 5 to 6 inches in length and is the only square-tailed swallow in California. In contrast, its long, deeply forked tail distinguishes the barn swallow. The cliff swallow is also recognized by its pale, orange-brown rump, white forehead, dark rust-colored throat, and steel blue crown and back.

animal trappingAnimal Trapping:
We are an environmentally caring company and do not harm any animals with our animal control methods. We trap raccoons, opossums, Pigeons, and skunks. After the animal is humanely trapped, we release the animals into the wild away from nearby towns or cities to deter them from returning.

antCarpenter Ants :
These are among the larger (6-12 mm) ants in the United States. Most are black but some are various shades of brown or red and black. They usually have an evenly rounded thorax when viewed from the side with a circle of tiny hairs on the tip of their abdomen. There is only a single node in the thin-waisted petiole region. Carpenter ants are social insects that usually nest in the center of rotting trees or water damaged areas within wooden structures. These ants feed on many foods. They do not feed on wood. The colonies are sometimes located by sawdust-like debris dropped near their excavation.
At 900 F, their life cycle is completed in about 2 months Eggs hatch in 24 days with the larval and pupal stages lasting 21 days.

The cerci at the tip of the abdomen are stubby; whereas the American cockroach has long, thin cerci. The brown cockroach is found outdoors.

oriental cockroachOriental Cockroach:

This cockroach is not commonly found in Florida. It is usually found in damp basements, sewers, and crawl spaces beneath houses.

 

 


fleasFleas:
Adult fleas are flattened from side to side, dark colored, wingless and have strongly developed legs. Their hind pair of legs are especially adapted for jumping. They have sucking mouthparts used to siphon out the blood of animals. Larvae are worm-like, legless and tan. They feed on organic debris, dried blood and excrement from adult fleas. Fleas usually bite humans where clothing fits tightly against the body. Adult fleas can live for several weeks without a blood meal. When found indoors, they are usually associated with pet dogs or cats. Fleas can transmit several diseases including bubonic plague and tularemia. They are also the carriers of a tapeworm which, in the adult stage, is found in dogs and men.

Black widows are not aggressive, and will not bite unless provoked. However, they are poisonous. If bitten, seek medical attention; bites are rarely fatal.

termites Subterranean Termites:
Being in nearly every state, they are the most common pests injuring structural timber. The winged forms are about 13 mm long and the wingless workers and soldiers are 6 mm long. Termites develop from eggs laid by primary or secondary reproductives. The nymphs proceed through several molts during which the 4 different castes formed are called workers, soldiers primary (winged) reproductives and secondary (wingless) reproductives. Subterranean termite colonies are usually located in the soil from which workers build mud tubes to the wood upon which they must eat for food. We do not provide termite services Top

 


pillbugsPillbugs (sowbugs):
Not more than three-fourths-inch long; thorax composed of seven hard overlapping plates with seven pairs of legs; only pillbugs are able to roll up into a ball. Pillbugs prefer moist locations; found under objects on damp ground; mostly nocturnal; often invade basements and first floors of houses. They feed on decaying vegetable matter. Female gives birth to between 24 and 28 young per brood; usually one to three generations a year; may live as long as two years. Pillbugs and related sowbugs are the only crustaceans that have become completely adapted to living their whole life on land.
