Pest Control

Top 3 Pests In Charlotte

It has been a long summer in Charlotte, and common pests like termites, spiders, roaches, and ants have shown no sign of slowing down. In fact, some pest control professionals have reported seeing a 30 percent increase in the number of pest control related phones calls. There seems to be a common theme for these phone calls… Some pests seem to be more prevalent than others.

We asked the pest control professionals at Bulwark Exterminating what are the most common insect pests they have taken phone calls on this summer. Here are the top three most common Charlotte pests:

3. House Spiders

Common House Spider

Residents of Charlotte may not know the name of the big, ugly, brown spiders that they find building gigantic webs throughout their attics, basements, and garages; they just know they want them out of their homes. There actual name is the Common House spider or the American House spider, and they are the third most common called about pest in the Charlotte area.

Measuring over an inch in length, the American House spider looks a lot like the Black Widow spider… In shape anyways. The house spider is actually a dull brown and far less venomous than the Black Widow. The house spider actually rarely bites, and will do so only if provoked. Their webs and their intimidating size freak out homeowners, and that’s primarily the reason so many phone calls are taken regarding this spider pest. Charlotte spider control methods are needed to combat severe house spider infestations.

2. Ants

3 Ants

One of the most successful groups of insects in the world, and in Charlotte is the ant. There are 25 different species of ants that infest homes in the United States, but in North Carolina there are three usual culprits: the fire ant, the Argentine ant, ant the Black Carpenter ant. These ants enter Charlotte homes, foraging for sweets and foods that contain protein.

The Black Carpenter ant is notorious for chewing through the wood in your home and on your property, while the fire ant is infamous for building big mounds and aggressively stinging anybody who disturbs them. If you have problems with any of these ants on your property, continual and persistent Charlotte ant control is needed to exterminate ants and control their colonies.

1. Roaches

American Cockroach

It’s no secret that cockroaches are a nationwide problem, and according to Bulwark Pest Control they are the biggest problem pest in the Charlotte area. More calls are taken regarding roach infestations than any other insect pest. Cockroaches are hardy pests to say the least, able to survive over four months without water or food. They have been around for millions of years and aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. In fact, cockroaches are becoming more and more resistant to common pesticides, making them more difficult to control.

If your home has a serious infestation of German cockroaches or American cockroaches, Charlotte roach control professionals who are up to date on the most effective roach control strategies are your best option to exterminate them.

Invasion Of Fire Ants In Charlotte Due To Weather

Fire AntsCharlotte area residents have been under attack the last few weeks, under attack from fierce stinging fire ants. In fact, the fire ant control professionals at Bulwark Exterminating in Charlotte have been taking numerous phone calls a day from desperate Charlotte homeowners needing answers and protection from these malevolent ant pests.

Charlotte Weather Causing Fire Ants To Invade

The increase of rain in the greater Charlotte area, combined with a delay in the extremely high temperatures, has created an ideal environment for Fire ants to invade our homes. The Fire ants are looking to escape the excessive water, and head for higher ground away from the moisture and puddles. That is why we are seeing so many of these ants in our homes as of late.

Once the heavy summer rains subside, the Fire ants will return to their mounds and repair any damage the moisture may have likely caused. If their huge nests are beyond repair, they’ll simply move on to another part of your yard and build a completely new nest. This whole process will take about 48 hours.

Fire Ants In Charlotte

One of the most common and most feared pests in Charlotte, NC is the Red Imported Fire ant. They are reddish-brown in color, with darker abdomens. The worker ants range in size from 1/16 to 1/4 of an inch in length. These ants are well known for their very painful stings, and the massive mounds these destructive ants build in your yards. To top it all off, Fire ants reproduce very quickly. One Fire Ant queen can lay almost one million eggs in her lifetime.

In addition to reproducing rapidly, Fire ants also spread very quickly. This is very evident to most of us in Charlotte who are seeing these stinging ants in our homes, schools, churches, libraries, and stores. Fire ants are excellent hitchhikers, grabbing onto anything that moves. If you start seeing these ants in one place, it won’t be long before they’ll be within a mile radius.

Charlotte Fire Ant Control

If you are seeing an invasion of Fire ants in and around your Charlotte, NC home or property, do not wait until it’s too late before you get some help. Waiting can cause the ants to completely take over your property; stinging you, your children, and your pets. Call a Charlotte Fire Ant Control professional today!

Five Plants That Keep Mosquitoes From Buzzing In Your Ears

Everyone tires of the constant buzzing and biting from mosquitoes. It can be a real pain to deal with mosquitoes when one has a backyard party, is grilling out, or just wants to sit comfortably and watch the kids play. Candles, torches, citronella sprays, and bug repellents work, but only for a little while. There is another, more natural way to keep mosquitoes from ones yard to begin with. Having the right plants in ones yard can keep mosquitoes away altogether. Some plants emit natural odors and oils that repel mosquitoes all the time, not just for a little while.

Lemony Plants

Lemon Balm

Lemon Balm

Plants that give off a lemony odor keep mosquitoes away. Lemon grass, lemon balm, and lemon thyme are all great plants to use to repel the nasty pests. Lemon grass is not easily planted with seeds and is better when grown from the plant itself. Buying a bunch from the local grocery store works fine. Take the bunch and place in a vase of water in a sunny window for about a week or ten days. By this time, roots will begin to grow and the lemon grass can be split into pieces and planted easily. Lemon balm is also known as horsemint. It repels mosquitoes but it is very hard to contain. The plant flourishes even in dry patches of weather. It does not repel other insects including bees. Keeping this plant trimmed back is a necessary part of the upkeep for lemon balm. Lemon thyme is also good for repelling the pesky bloodsuckers, but although easy to grow, it requires yearly pruning.

Catnip

Catnip

Catnip

One of the best deterrents of mosquitoes is catnip. This plant can be grown all over ones yard and can be placed in any soil. It grows very easily on its own. The only drawback is the luring effect that it has on cats. People who own cats should not plant catnip in their yards. Otherwise, catnip is great used as a plant in pots, gardens, and flowerbeds. Catnip oil and crushed dried catnip are also effective against mosquitoes. Using these items can reduce the care needed by the plants and still offer the repelling benefits of catnip.

Marigolds

Marigolds

Marigolds

Marigolds are a colorful way to repel mosquitoes, but the bright color attracts wasps. Be careful when planting marigolds to make sure that they are away from patios and windows. Putting them near fence lines and the back of a property are great ways to repel mosquitoes without inviting wasps too close. Putting these flowers in pots that can be moved around is also a great idea.

Citronella

Citronella

Citronella

Citronella plants are one of the most common plants that people use to repel mosquitoes. Citronella oil is used in candles, torches, lamps, and many other mosquito repelling products. The citronella plant is easy to grow, and the plant works better at keeping mosquitoes away because it has more of an odor than the oil that is used in mosquito repelling products.

Spices

Herb & Spice Garden

Herb & Spice Garden

Rosemary, basil, and sage are all great deterrents for mosquitoes. Some repel other pests like flies, beetles, and ants. Spices are great to plant in ones garden or in pots that can be moved around the patio. Using spices regularly and growing them yearly helps eliminate pests like mosquitoes from ones garden and yard.

Using the right combination of plants in ones yard is a great way to help keep pesky insects like mosquitoes from plaguing ones family year round. Finding the right combination to use in planters, pots, the garden, and at entryways is easy with the right information. Potted plants can be moved around next to chairs and tables for maximum protection. Choosing the plants that serve the families needs the best without inviting unwanted pests is the best method.

But even if that is the case, it can be made a lot harder for them to get in. By investing time in a little home maintenance tasks, you can make your home virtually pest free.

The 10 Cheapest Ways To Pest Proof Your Home

  • Keep screens on all your doors and windows

Screen doors should be installed in your home. If they are damaged or torn, get rid of them! In order to prevent the most minute or smallest of insects from entering your home, use the finest mesh screening you can find.

  • Seal around all doors and repair any openings

Bugs can get in if light or air can. Tight fitting floor sweeps should be installed at the exterior door bottom area. Fill the gaps with door seals at the top and sides of each door. Gaps and cracks in the basement, especially near pipes that enter or exit through the wall. Check outside around the house for other outlets, utility meters and vents that could be inviting for insects. Doors and windows general have some type of weather stripping.

  • Take time to seal cracks in the foundation of your home or the exterior walls

This can also include any fascia boards too. Exterior wall cracks welcomes insects in. A caulking solution on these cracks will greatly reduce insect visitors.

  • Check utility lines and other vents near appliances

If there are gaps or openings in and around the appliances in your home, they provide ways for insects to come in from the outside. Using a foam spray, cover these areas and keep the critters out!

  • Crawling CockroachSecure Attic with critter proof mesh

There are an abundance of critters and pests that would like to make themselves right at home in crawl spaces in your attic. Barriers should be installed to keep them out. By putting in some critter proof mesh on vents and crawl spaces, these critters will stay out and also keep the other fleas and mites that they carry out of your home as well!

  • Fix any leaks

This is because moisture can attract insects. Humidity of some amount is required for insects to live. Plumbing leaks should be repaired as soon as possible. Pipes that are dripping should be tightened and sealed. Heavy rain or flooding could greatly damage your basement is a proper drainage system is not installed.

  • Keep a clean and tidy kitchen

The kitchen is where food is stores and also where pests like to be right at home. So, most importantly keep the kitchen as clean as possible. Most pests it turns out are attracted to crumbs and bits of food left around. Some tips to keep the kitchen include keeping leftovers sealed up, double check counters for spills, clean containers of leftover residue, keep checks on spoiled fruit and produce, sweep up and vacuum regularly and try to wipe off and clean containers before recycling them. Most importantly, seal your food up tight!

  • Clean up the yard & clean up after pets

It’s true that the heaps of compost and decayed or dried up leaves are congregational points for insects. Keep a clean yard, as well as trim back bushes and tree limbs touching your home. Clean up any pet waste and keep your trash bins clean.

  • Get rid of unnecessary clutter

By keeping your house cluttered up, insects can find places to hide. Put your things away after they are used and keep your floor clear.

  • Take the garbage out

If it can be smelled, it’s time to remove it. These smells attract unwanted pests. Empty the garbage can as much as possible.

Charlotte Hotel Has Bedbugs

Charlotte Hotel Has Bedbugs

 

A woman reached out to Channel 9 News in Charlotte, claiming she got bedbugs from the Homewood Suites Hotel while she was in town during CIAA weekend.

The woman, identified as Stephanie Eason, claims she took the bedbugs home with her without even knowing it, and now they are now infesting her Raleigh, NC home.

Eason said she checked into the hotel on February 28, 2013. During her three night stay, her and her friend saw what appeared to be bugs crawling on the couch inside their room. She contacted the hotel staff, who immediately came and sprayed to room for bugs.

It’s about the room was sprayed, that Eason began noticing red welts on her legs. She determined them to be bites; bites from the notorious bedbug.

Charlotte Hotel Treated For Bedbugs

 

Eason contacted the County Health department who investigated the matter. It was determined that the Homewood Suites Hotel did in fact have bedbugs.

Before the Country Health Department had arrived, the Hotel had been very proactive in treating the bedbug infestation. The room had been closed down, along with three other adjacent rooms. The rooms were treated by pest control professionals.

Eason also sought the services of a Raleigh pest control professional to eliminate the bedbugs from her Raleigh home. She is seeking compensation for the incident, and working with the hotel’s insurance company.

Happy Valentine’s Day To Charlotte. From Bulwark.

Everyone here at Bulwark would like to give Charlotte and its surrounding cities a giant Valentine’s Day hug. Everybody deserves to have a valentine this year. At Bulwark, we thought we’d surprise some unsuspecting, but very deserving people to show our appreciation.

Last week we sent out an order of flowers and chocolates to three of our favorite news casters on television: Natalie Pasquarella from TV 9, Dianne Gallagher from NBC Charlotte and Kelli Bartik from FOX Charlotte – all lovely and professional young ladies. Without being too creepy-viewer, we thought flowers and chocolate was the best and safest item to send. Every girls like flowers, right?

Kelli even posted a picture of her flowers on her twitter page. We appreciate the shout-out, Kelli.

Last week we also released our newest video. We created it specially for Valentine’s Day and sent a link to all three ladies for them to view. Take a look.

We certainly don’t want to let you all make the same mistake, so here is a small checklist of things to do before Thursday.

– Schedule Babysitter
– Make dinner reservations or buy homemade meal ingredients
– Buy a semi-expensive bottle of wine
– And chocolates
– Call Bulwark Exterminating (This one is REALLY important, we can’t stress it enough.)

Only in a college town
Here’s a funny story for you. When I was in my last year of college, my girlfriend (now wife), was in school with me as well. I had a night class on Valentine’s Day and the teacher promised she would let us out early. After getting out of class 15 minutes late, and I without any plans, started to drive around town looking for a place to eat. I picked her up, and we headed over to Outback Steakhouse (Gimme a break! I was in college!). Wait time? FOUR hours! “That’ll be like, midnight?” I asked the girl. “Yeah, about”, she responded. We grabbed some pizza on the way home, popped in a movie at home, then called it a night. We both had class early the next morning.

How To Have a Pest Free Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is fast approaching. Are you ready?

Whether you have house guests coming for Thanksgiving, or you will be traveling, there are a few steps you can take to ensure your Thanksgiving is pest free.

7 Steps To a Pest Free Thanksgiving

 

1. Eliminate clutter. Pests like cockroaches, mice, and spiders, love to make their homes in clutter. It gives them a place to hide, and often time’s offers easy access to a quick meal. Get rid of anything unwanted, pick things up, and get organized to keep the pests at bay.

2. Clean, clean, clean. Pests will look for any food they can, and that includes any morsels of food left in your home. Thoroughly clean your kitchen and dining area, removing all evidence of food. Promptly wash dishes and sweep the floor after each and every meal. If insects and other pests cannot find food inside your home, they will leave.

3. Fix leaky plumbing. Just like you and I, pests need water to survive. Water sources frequently draw pests in. Eliminate these water sources near your property, and pests will stay away.

4. Eliminate pest entrances. During the cool Charlotte fall weather, we love to have our doors and windows open. Check the screens on your doors and windows, and the weather-stripping, and make sure everything is sealed properly. If the garage door doesn’t completely touch the driveway, replace the rubber gasket.

5. Tightly seal food and trash. Like I mentioned before, eliminate a pest’s food source (inside and out) and they will not come to your home looking for a quick meal. Keep your trashcans away from your house, and make sure all your food is covered and sealed.

6. Move/remove foliage or wood piles. This is a big problem during the fall months. Eliminate piles of leaves; as ants and roaches dwell underneath. Anything touching your house, like wood piles, will make for a pest highway.

7. Get pest control. If you are frequently seeing pests in or around your property, call a professional. If you’re continually seeing bugs and pests, they’re likely under the foundation of your home or living in your wall voids.

Beware of Bed Bugs When Traveling This Thanksgiving

 

Many Charlotte, NC residents will be traveling all over the country this Thanksgiving. With the rise of bed bugs, it’s imperative to take a few precautions so you don’t bring them back home with you.

If you travel this Thanksgiving, keep your luggage off the floor. Opt for a luggage rack, a counter, or any other shelf you can find. Do not leave piles of clothing on the floor. Before you get into a hotel bed, or any other bed that’s not your own, pull back the sheets and carefully inspect the piping along the mattress. Look for live bugs. They’ll look like tiny smashed ticks, and there will likely be dried blood stains.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

No matter what your plans are for the Thanksgiving holiday, I wish you all the best. May your Thanksgiving be filled with loved ones, good food, and gratitude. Of course, may your Thanksgiving be pest free. Happy Thanksgiving from Bulwark Exterminating!

Kudzu Bugs Are Invading Charlotte Homes This Fall

KB3

The Kudzu Bug

 

If you live in Charlotte, NC, you’ve likely become very familiar with the bothersome kudzu bug. Homeowners say they can’t seem to get rid of these inconvenient pests, which can frequently be found on your homes and cars during the fall months.

Kudzu bugs are approximately 1/6” to ¼” long, a dark greenish brown in color, and look an awful lot like a fat tick or dark colored ladybug. They will not bite you, but they are one of the largest nuisances because of their habits of overwintering. During the fall they will make their way towards your home, and try to find a warm place to hide from the upcoming winter elements. This kudzu bug movement usually occurs during the end of September, or early October every year.

Kudzu bugs are attracted to light colors like your pale clothing, your white car, or your light colored house. They will then gather together on these light-colored surfaces and then move under siding, into gaps around doors and windows, or through penetrations such as around air conditioning and water pipes. They will also often cling to your clothes, and get tangled up in your hair. These pesky kudzu bugs are related to stink bugs. Like stinkbugs, they release a protective stink when crushed. It’s a fruitier smell than stinkbugs’ stench, and has been mistaken at least once, by a woman who called 911, for a gas leak.

Keeping Kudzu Bugs Out Of Your Home

 

With winter fast approaching, you’ve likely been seeing an increase in kudzu bug activity near your Charlotte, NC home. There are a few preventative measures you can take to protect your property from the frustrating invaders.

  1. Remove any kudzu or wisteria plants that may be around your property the best you can. Kudzu bugs are excellent fliers. If you are seeing them in your home, they likely flew from plants outside of your property area.
  2. Cover any vents, window, and doors with tight fitting screens.
  3. Seal up any holes, cracks, or that might allow kudzu bugs easy access into your home.
  4. If you do happen to get any of the bugs inside your home, vacuum them up with a shop-vac filled with hot soapy water. If using an upright vacuum, make sure it has a vacuum bag that is tightly sealed. Remember, do not crush the bugs or you will be smelling them.
  5. If the kudzu bug problem is persistent, contact a pest control professional.

Search and Rescue Cockroaches

First Response Cockroaches

 

Scientists at NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina are putting cockroaches to good use for a change. They’re planning on their system of electronically equipped roaches saving lives during disasters like earthquakes, fires and chemical attacks. Cockroaches are suiting up with miniature backpacks that have microchip sensors, and they are then steered around by using low frequency electrical pulses that the insects pick up with their antenna. The equipped roaches work kind of like a wireless remote control cars mounted with cameras and microphones. As long as you continue feeding the roaches electrical impulses, they will keep going.

Once these cockroaches are outfitted, they will be able to make their way through the fallen ruble and debris. The roaches will look to locate trapped victims with their mounted cameras, and use their microphones to pick up cries for help. This will enable responders in locating trapped victims and send help quickly. Researchers at the University believe that their efforts will make a big difference, especially after disasters in heavily inhabited metropolitan areas.

The research team is outfitting the Madagascar hissing cockroach, one of the world’s biggest species of roach. They can grow up to three inches long, but are still small enough to make their way through the fallen debris. Click here to read more.

What Else Can Roaches Do?

 

It’s fascinating to read about all the remarkable things the insect world can do for us, including cockroaches. For each story of insects helping humanity, there are millions more negative stories. Roaches pose a severe health risk. They leave behind feces and saliva that have the potential of spreading 33 different types of bacteria. Cockroaches also have specific proteins that have can cause severe allergic and asthmatic reactions. Additionally, cockroaches are hosts to six different parasitic worms and quite a few human pathogens.

If you are living in Charlotte, NC area, and have a cockroach problem inside your home, contact a local exterminator immediately. Don’t put your health in jeopardy. Let’s let the researchers at NC State University find better uses for the cockroaches.
