 -Bed bugs are brownish and about one-fifth of an inch in length.

-Bed bugs bite raised bumps that itch.

-Bed bugs rarely transmit any human disease.

-To get rid of bed bugs can be extremely difficult because they hide in bed furniture, baseboards, door frames, or within voids/cracks in the wall.

-Bedbug may crawl into rooms by squeezing through walls to enter neighboring rooms. They can also be moved from one place to another hiding in wooden furniture, beddings, clothes and other items.

-Evidence of bed bug activity includes live and dead bedbugs, dark spots on a mattress, bed frames and bloody spots on sheets.

Bedbug Habitats:

Bed bugs infest homes, hotel rooms, and apartments by getting rides on luggage’s, furniture’s, and luggage carried from an infested room to another. Bed bug prevention is difficult because it takes only one bug or a few eggs dropped onto a bag to begin a new infestation elsewhere. An infestation begins in a single hotel room or apartment and then may spread to neighboring units.

About spiders

Spiders aren’t all poisonous & not all bite. However, some species are a real problem their bites can be very painful and extremely poisonous. Bites can also cause swelling and some can be fatal.

Spiders play an important role in our ecosystem. Each species has its own preferences & habits for where they exists/dwell.

You might notice they shed wings among dust near window frames, doors frames, in sinks and bathtubs and in spider webs.

Termites build muddy tubes like straws. These tubes give them protection from animals/predators/temperature extremes help maintain moist conditions.

Because termites eat wood from within you can find them on rotten wood.

Dark areas in wood flooring may indicate termites feeding within or below.

About rodents

Rodents are identified as major pests because they are commonly found near human homes and are most likely to benefit from human structures, food and waste. Rats and mice cause an issue for humans living & their preserved food.

Basic rodents’ characteristics’

Rodents are capable of transmitting disease to humans through their hairy bodies, urine & droppings. A single mouse can excrete 40 to 100 droppings per day. Rats and mice might also bite a time, although it is rare. Sometimes a bite can result in a fatal disease if not treated can be dangerous. Some people develop an allergic reaction to rats, which can cause asthma related diseases.

Food contamination by rats and mice can cause great damage. Between one-sixth and one-third of food production is lost annually due to contamination, who also states that a single rat can consume about 1 ounce of food per night. Some rats’ families/colonies can be of more than 90 rats.

Rats and mice are also successful breeders. A female rat can breed every 4 weeks, and usually gives birth to about 6 to 12 young at one time. Female mouse reproduces every 3 to 4 weeks and usually gives birth to about 5 or 6 young, although sometimes up to 12. This means that both rodents’ colonies can grow fast, although rats only live for about a year. Mice can live up to 2 or 3 years under ideal conditions.

About snakes  

Snakes hide in deep holes and only come out only to hunt for food once a week. They will be very active soon after shedding skin once in 3 to 4 weeks. To catch a snake we have some special methods. By using them we can even remove them from their hidings spots & released into the wild.

Preventive method we use:

We have adopted some preventive methods to avoid their re-entry into the compound. They can be restricted by blocking all the holes in the compound and by using snake repellent chemicals. All the ingredients in the snake repellents chemicals are non-toxic and are licensed and approved.

About Mosquitoes

This creature has caused more annoyance to humans a blood sucking pest.

Basic characteristics of Mosquitoes

The mosquito is a type of fly with thin body, wings & long legs. The females are long.

Only the female mosquito bites – male mosquitoes feed on the flower nectar.

People have a number of different reactions to mosquito bites, with some individuals experiencing itchiness.

Tips for Control

Mosquito reduction, however, is hectic and involves a number of components:

  • Habitat Reduction, reduce areas that have the ability to collect/gather water and hold it for more than weeks. Preventing rainwater accumulation, monitoring swamps and emptying pools/reshuffling.
  • Controlling Mosquito Larvae, ditches, small ponds or decorative garden ponds.
  • Controlling Adult Mosquitoes –Treating breeding sources.

About Flies

Flies are recognized as carriers of diseases. Flies pick/collect pathogens on their legs and mouths when females lay eggs on rotten/decomposing organic matter such as garbage and animal corpses etc.

They carry diseases on their legs and the hairs that cover their bodies. It takes only a matter of seconds transfer these pathogens to food. Mature house flies normally use saliva to liquefy solid food before feeding on it.

Diseases carried by house flies include; cholera, typhoid, dysentery, salmonella, anthrax and tuberculosis, also house flies have also been known to transmit the eggs of “parasitic worms”.

About bees

A sting by a wasp or bee is a painful experience & can be life threatening to people who are allergic to stings.

It is possible to reduce these risks by taking precautions when outdoors and ensuring that bee nests are properly managed.

If you are experiencing high numbers of bees/wasps in your premise/home it is likely that there is a nest nearby.

A nest may contain thousands of bees which can swarm and will attack if disturbed. If the location of a wasp nest is likely to put people at danger, then the nest should be destroyed.

What to do

To locate the nest, watch the flight path of returning wasps. If the nest is the near the home/business premise, keep all nearby windows closed.

About Moths

Moths feed on clothing and textiles and stored products. They feed on animal textiles like wool, leather and feathers. Moths do not pose a health risk; they are a pest in homes because of the severe damage their larvae cause to clothes, fabrics, furs, leather and carpets.

Signs of moths:

They normally wander around considerable distances prior to pupation & generally regarded as scavengers on a wide range of foods.

About bats

Bats may carry bacteria and viruses which can be harmful to humans but the risk of infection is low. People who are not trained and vaccinated should not handle them.

Bats common hiding areas

  • Attic spaces. You may have bats in your belfry. These creatures prefer attic spaces because they are warm and secluded.
  • Roofline. Before bats get into your attic, they may get into your roofline, eaves, or soffits. Avoid climbing a ladder and checking these areas. It could result in a fall.
  • Wall voids. This is a common hiding place for bats. Fortunately, you can't get in there.
  • The shed. These are popular because they are secluded and often offer easier access.
  • The garage. If you have a storage space in your garage, this is probably not a good place to visit until you've had someone inspect your property for bats.
