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.

Roaches Revealed

Roach Sweet ToothCockroaches are some of the peskiest creepy crawlers out there. They’re sneaky, sly, and definitely super gross. We’re all ashamed to admit that these guys have found their way into our homes at one time or another. They’re most found of our beloved pantries and refrigerators. While we hate the things, the pest control business loves them. Roaches are some of the most exterminated bugs in the industry. However, in the 1990’s of sunny Florida, exterminators seemed to have run out of cards against these unwavering opponents. The roaches had a new trick up their sleeves; losing their sweet tooth.

In the 1990’s exterminators were baffled by the critter. Exterminators used a poison mixed with sugary juices as bait that was sure to catch the cockroaches, but when the roaches weren’t biting, it seemed the epic battle against these nasty bugs would never end. However, in recent years, researchers Ayako Wada-Katsumata, Jules Silverman, and Coby Schal from nearby North Carolina University decided to investigate the invincible cockroach.

The Investigation Yields Results

 

Instead of taste buds, cockroaches have taste hairs all over their bodies. In order to determine why roaches have lost their love of sweets, researchers focused on the hairs around the roach’s mouth along with two types of nerves cells. These two types of nerve cells are responsible for transmitting to the roach the taste of sweetness and bitterness. When the sweet signal is sent the bug goes in for the kill, but when the bitterness signal is sent the bug scowls away. What the researches discovered in the common German cockroach was that glucose, which is a common component in sugary sweets, sparked the bitterness receptor. This newly evolved trait in the roaches is the reason they’ve been able to outsmart the pest control industry.

Roach SoupReactions

 

This discovery stirred up quite a reaction in the scientific community. Walter S. Leal, the head of the entomology department in the college of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Davis and entomologist at Purdue University, Grzegorz Buczkowski, who were not involved in the study, were quick to remark on the findings in North Carolina.

“We lose baits all the time,” said Buczkowski. He also commented on how new poisons are constantly being developed to in order to maintain the effectiveness of the pest control industry. Bugs become resistant to the poison, just like bacteria become resistant to antibiotics.

Thanks to the research and its discovery, the market better understand how the roaches are surviving. It isn’t that their poisons are ineffective; it’s just that the bugs are changing their genetics and laying off the glucose. The cockroaches then pass off this trait and evolve into the monster roach that never seems to die.

“Sometimes the science is beautiful but you don’t know whether there is going to be an application fie years from now, 10 years from now or 100 years,” said Walter S. Leal.

So these results are definitely a breakthrough for the pest control market, and a great contributor in the mankind vs. roach battle.

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!

Asian Cockroaches In Charlotte

Asian cockroaches are becoming more of a pest control problem in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. There are a couple reasons for the recent establishment of these roaches in Charlotte. Here’s what you need to know:

Asian Cockroach

Asian Cockroaches In Charlotte, NC

 

First discovered in Florida in late 1968, heavily infested areas have now been discovered in Charlotte and surrounding areas in North Carolina. It’s not only North Carolina that is venerable to these roach pests, as much of the south-eastern United States is housing these imported cockroaches.

Many Charlotte residents don’t know that they have Asian cockroaches because they are commonly confused with the German cockroach; another common Charlotte pest control problem. Even though Asian cockroaches look conspicuously similar, German cockroaches are darker in color than the Asian cockroach. The Asian Cockroaches’ wings are also narrower and longer.

Because invasions of 30,000 to 250,000 Asian cockroaches (per acre) are common, large areas around infested Charlotte homes will (likely) require aggressive pest control services; to effectively eliminate the problem. Furthermore, if the area surrounding the property remains untreated, it could result in an Asian cockroach re-infestation.

Asian roaches enter Charlotte homes through gaps in doorways and windows. They’ll directly fly to your walls while avoiding baseboards and other typical German cockroach harborages.

Charlotte Pest Control For Asian Cockroaches

 

Out of all the different species of cockroaches, the Asian cockroach just might be the most difficult to control. One of the reasons these roaches are so difficult to control, is because they can fly. In fact, Asian cockroaches have been known to fly well over 120 feet. This means, that even if you treat the roaches on your Charlotte property, new roaches can fly in from areas that haven’t been treated with pesticides. Re-infestations can be common unless other preventative measures, like eliminating water and food sources, are taken.

The Asian cockroach is vulnerable to all pesticides, but some are more effective than others. Stay away from residual sprays. Residual sprays around the perimeter of structures are usually ineffective because there are numerous infested areas in lawns, mulch, and wooded areas. Instead, opt for toxic baits. Toxic baits applied to infested areas outdoors have provided the most reliable control. Cockroach baits have been registered for use outdoors.

No matter the type of cockroaches infesting your home, a roach control professional can help exterminate them.

North Carolina Carpenter Ant Prevention

One of the most common and most destructive ant pests in the Charlotte, NC area is the Carpenter ant. In North Carolina, the Carpenter ant that is most frequently pestering homeowners is the Black Carpenter ant (Camponotus pennsylvanicus). This species of Carpenter ant is also referred to as the Pennsylvania Carpenter ant. Whatever you want to call it, this ant species can be very destructive.

Carpenter Ants

 

One of the largest groupings of ant species is the Carpenter ant. They are most well known for their ability to tunnel through wood; and this is one of the primary reasons confuse Carpenter ants for termites. Carpenter ants do differ from termites, in that they do not eat the wood in which they tunnel. North Carolina Carpenter ants reach lengths of about 1/4 inch long, but a few ½ long ants have been spotted.

Normal Carpenter ants have black heads and abdomens, but have a dark red thorax. The Black Carpenter that North Carolina homeowners see is very similar in appearance, but is black all over. It’s important to note, that sometimes these ants can also have wings.

Carpenter Ant Destruction

 

Like I mentioned before, Carpenter ants build their nests in wooden structures in your home and on your property. Unused, rotten, or decaying wood seem to be the ant’s favorite nesting choices; but old, cracking furniture is also susceptible. This nesting behavior can be destructive.

Carpenter ant nesting habits destroy the integrity of wooden structures, including that of your house or furniture. These ants vigorously chew through wood, building tunnels for their nests. If you see piles of sawdust near a wooden structure on your property, it’s a good sign you have a pest problem… And that pest could be a Carpenter ant. It’s about this time you should have your home inspected by a licensed pest control professional.

North Carolina Carpenter Ant Prevention

 

  • Get rid of vacant wood. Whether it’s an old decaying tree stump, abandoned construction materials, or a wood pile; get rid of it! Carpenter ants love to build their nest in this wood.
  • Fix leaks and eliminate standing water. Just like you and I, Carpenter ants need water to survive. Do not make it readily available.
  • Eradicate sources of food. Carpenter ants love to eat proteins, starches, and sweets. Clean up crumbs and food debris from around your home, and tightly seal food containers.
  • Close up wooden cracks with sealant. Cracks in tree stumps, wooden furniture, etc. are an open invitation for Carpenter ants to build a nest. Put up a closed sign by sealing up those cracks with a wood sealant or epoxy.
  • Get professional ant control. One sure-fire solution to keep those destructive Carpenter ants away is to hire an ant control professional who specializes in pest control for Carpenter ants.

North Carolina Pest Control For Carpenter Ants

 

If you suspect you may have Carpenter ants around your Charlotte, NC property, do not wait until it’s too late before you get some help. Waiting will only further damage the integrity of anything that’s made of wood which is located on your property. Get professional ant control!

6 Ways To Elminate Bed Bugs In Your Home

Adult bed bug, Cimex lectularius

Despite their name, “bed bugs” can be found in almost any part of your house and are often found far away from the bedroom. Bed bugs might be lurking in your bookshelves (avoid buying used books on the street for this reason) or in your couch (avoid buying used couches too!) or in other places too. There are several ways to tell if you have bed bugs – maybe you saw an actual bug or egg so you are 100% certain; perhaps you have woken up covered in bites leading you to believe you might have bed bugs; or maybe you have even had an inspector come to your house to confirm your fears. Either way, now that you know you have an infestation, you are probably wondering how to take care of it.

First, save a specimen. This might sound gross, but you should hold onto the physical bodies of the bed bugs in a Ziploc. Beyond helping the exterminator confirm the infestation, you might need to show them to your landlord or insurer so that you can recover your costs. You may never see an actual bug, so if you do, grab it. Take pictures of any damage as well.

Second, don’t switch to another bed in your house. Your first instinct might be to sleep elsewhere if the bed bugs are actually found in your bed. But unfortunately, all this will achieve is spreading the infestation. So don’t start sleeping on the couch, and definitely don’t stay at a friend or relative’s house. The bed bugs will be waiting for you when you get home and will have left some cousins wherever you went.

Third, consult a professional. Even if you are sure you have bed bugs, you should always get a professional pest control operator to come in, identify the pest and then treat it. Call them as soon as you suspect an infestation and get them into your home right away. Treatment takes time, so start sooner rather than later.

Fourth, check the other beds. Not everyone will know if they have bed bugs just by being bitten. Not everybody reacts to the bites in the same way, so there could be bugs in their beds without them knowing. Make sure your professional pest control operator does a thorough check of the home.

Fifth, don’t start throwing everything away. Not every piece of furniture in your home needs to be sent to the landfill. Ask your professional pest control operator what can be saved and what should be tossed. Once you know what cannot be saved, the professional can help you dispose of it properly and safely so as not to spread the bugs even further.

Sixth, do start washing your linens and clothing. Your clothing and bedding should be dealt with right away. Machine wash everything on hot and then dry them on hot for about two hours. Dry cleaning is also an option. Whichever option you choose, the key part is to put the cleaned clothing and linens in sealed, airtight bags until you are going to use them in your bed bug free house.

Finding out you have bed bugs is never fun. But if you follow the proper precautions and have patience, hopefully the bed bugs will be handled quickly and without major loss of sleep, furniture, and money.

Fire Ant Stings

North Carolina Fire Ants

 

One of the most diabolical pests found in the Charlotte, North Carolina area is the Red Imported Fire ant. While these ants bite, they are notorious for very painful stings. You want more bad news? Fire ant season is just around the corner. Fire ants are most active, building their mounds and stinging their victims, from April-September.

Red Imported Fire ants prefer to build their mounds in open, sunny yards that are mowed and watered regularly. That is the majority of yards in North Carolina. Chances are you’ve come across the malevolent ants once or twice; and that means you can be stung.

Fire Ant Stings

If you are stung by a fire ant, you will know it immediately. Stings begin as little red marks, and are accompanied by moderate pain. The sting will eventually turn into white pustules or blisters. Fire ant stings will go away after several days, unless the area becomes infected.

There are no other stinging ants in North America. So if you get stung by an ant, you can pretty much assume it’s a fire ant.

Reactions To Fire Ant Stings

 

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Blistering
  • Swelling & Inflammation
  • Wooziness
  • Itchiness
  • Wheezing
  • Confusion & Disorientation
  • Vomiting

Treating Fire Ant Stings

 

If you have been stung by a fire ant, and are experiencing some of the more severe reactions (vomiting, light-headed, etc.), seek medical attention immediately. If you know you are allergic to bees, wasps, or other insects; you need to be very cautious of fire ant stings. There will likely be an allergic connection, and you will need medical attention.

If you’ve been stung by a fire ant, and are not experiencing allergic reactions, stay calm. You will be in pain for awhile. Take a pain reliever. Clean the infected sting area out with watered down bleach, ammonia, or meat tenderizer. This will help denature the fire ant’s venom.

Preventing Fire Ant Stings

 

Preventing Fire Ant stings is about taking extreme precautions. If you see a fire ant mound, keep your distance. Point them out to your children, and teach them to keep their distance. If you disturb their mounds in any way, the worker ants will spill out of the nest and aggressively attack the intruder. If you step on a fire ant mound on accident, multiple ants can crawl up you leg and sting repeatedly.

To best ensure your home and property are not infested by stinging fire ants, you need professional ant control.

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.

Bedbugs

 

Bedbugs are malevolent bloodsucking insects that are easily transferred from hotels, buses, taxis, to apartments and homes. Bedbugs are reddish-brown in color. The are flat, and look much like an apple seed.

Bedbugs hide in the bedding, mattresses, carpet and furniture; emerging to feed on human hosts. Bedbugs need blood to survive, and are very resilient and hard to eliminate. If you fear you have brought bedbugs into your home, contact a pest control professional immediately.

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.
