The biggest problem with pests (and there are many) is that they just won’t go away. As a pest control company, we are pros at eliminating these uninvited guests. You might think that they don’t eat up all your food and they’re “just little things,” but you haven’t considered that they set up house for their friends and family. The worst part is that they’re actually squatters. That’s right. They have no intention on leaving ever, and they probably prefer that you don’t stick around–except to be their butler. You’ve been polite for far too long. Economy Pest Control can help people in Roseville and the surrounding areas to keep these insects at bay.
Eliminating Ants in Your Pants, Rocklin and Lincoln
Odorous house ants emit a variety of smells when crushed. No, you didn’t leave the cheese out. That smell is them. This is due to the methyl ketones they produce. People who smell rotten coconut are invariably smelling the same thing (methyl ketones), which are produced in the mold surrounding the coconut. This is why you may have heard of these ants referred to as “coconut ants.” They also go by the names “sugar ants” and “stink ants.”
Their colonies can get into the tens of thousands. These ants are attracted to sugary substances and protein. They’re hard workers and don’t let up easily. After suffering injuries, these ants and their queen will still continue to carry out their day-to-day operations. The queen can continue to lay eggs without having food and water for two months. That’s a dedicated mother. The particular problem with these ants is that they need to be dealt with promptly. As their numbers grow, they become more troublesome to get rid of. You know, word about the party at your house spreads fast with these guys.
Pharaoh ants are intimidating by name, but did you know you might not notice them? They’re about two millimeters in length, and some are a light yellow while others are light brown. They have conquered virtually every continent. You thought odorous house ants were the worst. Pharaoh ants have numerous queens, which means the number of guests in your house can quickly get out of hand. What’s worse is that because of the numerous queens, each group can divide itself into other colonies. Don’t catch yourself in the middle of their showdowns.
Argentine ants might not sneak up on you like Pharaoh ants, but they are a huge problem. They are light to dark brown and look much like odorous ants. However, they are extremely aggressive. Once they showed up in California, they let all the other ants know who really owned the state. Their numbers are crazy too. The queens can account for nearly a third of the colony, so you can imagine how quickly their numbers grow. An advantage over these guys is that they don’t have static nests. They’ll move on if they feel there is a threat. We guarantee that as a professional exterminator, we are that threat.
Removing Spiders for Safety and Peace of Mind
You can find black widows just about anywhere, which is unfortunate. Their size, notoriety and red hour glass pattern invokes fear. Their bites are nothing to mess with either. Their bites can produce symptoms that are worthy of emergency room visits. If you ever find yourself bitten by one, seek medical attention immediately. You’re more likely to come across females than you are males as they tend to outlive them. You may have guessed why. The only time people are usually bitten by black widows are when they’re disturbed, but don’t count on them being objective about that. People often come across black widows when reaching into confined spaces and when moving things around in the yard.
There are no known populations of brown recluse spiders in California. However, approximately 20 verified collections of these types of pests have been made by spider experts. That doesn’t mean you’ll never come across one or should take any spider bite lightly. That said, there are a number of spiders that do look like them. You’re better off seeking medical attention than trying to determine whether the marking on the spider that bit you looks like a fiddle. By the way, the brown recluse spiders have several cousins that produce a nasty bite. Don’t get too friendly with these guys.
Cellar spiders are “helper spiders” as they tend to eat other types of spiders and get rid of insects as well. Many people call these “daddy long legs,” but they’re not the same. True daddy long legs are not spiders at all. Cellar spiders also have long legs, which is why most people call these spiders daddy long legs.
Bees and Wasps: When and How to Remove or Relocate Them
Bees are a double-edged sword of sorts. We love them, we need them, and they’re precious to the survival of everything on Earth, which makes them protected. However, it doesn’t mean you want to live right next to them. In fact, you’d probably like them to keep them at a distance and love them from afar. You don’t want to be stung, some people are fatally allergic to them, and they die once they sting people. We can help with this delicate situation.
Have you ever heard the term “mad as a hornet?” That’s because they get agitated and will sting you and sting you and sting you ad nauseum. You don’t want to upset them because their stings feel like little red-hot fire pokers. You might think a happy color, like yellow, and the name “jacket” means having a fun little playmate, but you don’t want to dance with a yellowjacket. They’re not so friendly. They’d prefer if you left them alone.
Hornets are similar to yellowjackets, and both are a type of wasp. You may run into their nests, which they sometimes like to make under the eaves of your home. Baldfaced hornets are black and white. Paper wasps look similar to yellowjackets, but they are a tad smaller. Do not poke their nests or otherwise try to get rid of them. You risk getting attacked if you do.
Experience: The Secret to Controlling Rats, Mice and Other Rodents
Rodents of Unusual Size are only found in the “Princess Bride,” but the Norway rat can get up to 11 inches long. They prefer to be close to the ground and gnaw on just about everything you have in your house. They can affect your wiring, plumbing and structural integrity of your home.
The roof rat is smaller than Norway rats and slightly cuter. You still don’t want these as house guests. Roof rats like to inhabit the higher places of your home, but they still like to gnaw on everything, which can cause problems with leaks, your attic, roof and other parts of your home.
Mice are far smaller, but that just makes it easier for them to move and hide. Don’t be fooled. Mice will forever win at hide and seek. They like to make nests in the undisturbed areas of your home, which can be in the walls, the attic and other tight spaces. They like to have lots of kids and invite other rodent friends. How you get rid of rodents depends on the type they are and how young they are. You don’t want to leave poisons in your home that can hurt people and animals. Poison can cause rodents to die in places you can’t get to. All you want is for them to leave.
