What Are The Top 3 Most Common Pests in Arizona?

I was pleased to sit down with a couple of the pest control professionals at Bulwark Exterminating recently, and talk candidly about the pest situation here in the Valley. I was interested to know what the most common pests are here in Arizona… The pests that are most frequently called about.

Here are the top 3 most called about pests in Arizona, according to Bulwark Pest Control Mesa:

3. Fire Ants

Fire Ant Sign What Are The Top 3 Most Common Pests in Arizona?

They’re red, they’re nasty, and in Arizona they have stung approximately 40 percent of the State’s population. I’m talking of course about the Red Imported Fire ant. These ants are known for their destructive mound building, and their painful stings which are unleashed whenever one of their huge ant mounds is threatened. Once stung, a victim will display painful red welts that rise above the skin and eventually blister. It’s because of these painful stings; Arizona residents want no part of the Fire ant and call Bulwark Exterminating in Mesa for professional Fire ant control.

2. Black Widows

Black Widow Spider In Web What Are The Top 3 Most Common Pests in Arizona?

Almost 99 percent of all spiders found in Arizona are harmless. One of the spiders that make up the remaining one percent is the Black Widow spider. Her appearance is unmistakable; with her large glossy black abdomen, and of course her bright red hour glass that warn everybody to keep their distance. Black Widows will only bite when provoked, and will likely run away when confronted. Despite this behavior, Arizona resident’s take know chances when it comes to this spider. Perhaps it’s her painful and dangerous bite that has residents calling Bulwark Exterminating in Mesa for professional spider control.

1. Arizona Bark Scorpion

Scorpion What Are The Top 3 Most Common Pests in Arizona?

The number one called about pest in Arizona, is without a doubt, the Arizona Bark Scorpion. Most Arizona residents are able to put up with a few cockroaches or crickets running around their home, but not scorpions. If you live in Arizona long enough, there’s a really high probability that you will be stung by a scorpion at some point. Anybody that has ever been stung does not want to ever go through that experience ever again. To avoid scorpion stings, it’s advised that professional scorpion control actions be taken. Arizona residents know this, and that is why scorpions are the most frequently called about pest.

Bug Movies From The Twenty-First Century

Bugs have long been the culprits of horror flicks, and for good reason: most people find insects to not only be creepy and crawly, but absolutely terrifying. The 1950s and ’60s saw a slew of B-flicks featuring gigantic bugs as evil monsters that trampled through countless American towns, as horror flicks (and B-flicks in particular) soared in popularity. The 1980s saw a revival of the bug-themed B-flicks, with movies like The Fly and Tremors becoming box-office hits. But did you know that bugs continue to play the villain’s role in modern horror movies? Below is a list of five horror movies from the 21st century featuring monstrous insects that will – literally – make your skin crawl.

1. Dragon Wasps

Source: horrorpedia.com

When a scientist’s father goes missing, she enlists the help of the US Army to search for him deep in the Belizean jungle. What ensues is conflict with a strange guerrilla army controlled by a mysterious and mystical warlord and… giant, mutant wasps. That have a thirst for blood. To protect themselves, the protagonists rub themselves with coca leaves –and thereby experiencing the “effects” of it – as well as use blocks of cocaine as explosives. Made in 2012, this movie is one of the most recent of the bug B-flicks.

2. They Nest

 

51Q2Z7TCKXL Bug Movies From The Twenty First Century

Also known as Creepy Crawlers when it was released in the year 2000, this movie tells the story of how a Maine island becomes infested with rare, lethal cockroaches which bear strange pincers that enable them to eat their victims from the inside out. A doctor who recently moved to the island from the city must battle the bugs, while trying to convince the local folk to believe him. Although only rated PG13, this movie is pretty disturbing and is not for the squeamish.

3. Mansquito

 

Monsquito Man DVD Cover Bug Movies From The Twenty First Century

Also known as Mosquito Man, this 2005 flick follows the story of a convicted murderer who transforms into a mutant mosquito after a DNA experiment with a scientist goes awry. The “mansquito” goes on a killing spree which leaves his victims sucked dry and soon – horror of horrors! – the lead female scientist – who happens to be romantically involved with the cop who originally arrested the convict and is the only person smart enough to solve the case – starts to transform into a mosquito herself!

4. Ice Spiders

 

51MZXC9bbcL Bug Movies From The Twenty First Century

This 2007 flick stars Vanessa Williams and Patrick Muldoon, in a horrifying tale of a government experiment gone awry. When a ski team arrives at the Lost Mountain Ski Resort to train for the Olympics, they are thrilled that a retired Olympic skier is going to help them train – until a local scientist arrives with the news that giant spiders – which have been produced by a top secret government project – have escaped, and are devouring everything in sight. Snow, ungodly webs, and Olympic hopefuls battling horrible humongous CGI spiders –what could be better?

5. Mongolian Death Worm

 

4035518373 7e0dc7c15a Bug Movies From The Twenty First Century

This made-for-TV movie from 2010 starring Sean Patrick Flanery tells the story of an American oil company that awakens a nest of deadly “death worms” when they set up an experimental drilling facility in the deserts of Mongolia. Of course, the creatures breed and spread, devouring everyone who crosses their path. Only one man can stop them – an adventurer and treasure hunter who has dedicated his life to seeking a legendary tomb that is fabled to be protected by the horrendous Death Worms. The hero faces a major dilemma: he knows in his heart he must kill the Death Worms, but doing so would destroy his life’s work. Of course, not destroying the worms could lead to the worms destroying him! What to do, what to do?

Bad acting, bad special effects and geographically inaccurate scenery makes for a splendid time for those who enjoy low-budget flicks, which is exactly what “Mongolian Death Worm” is.

While these movies were all made for TV, it’s simply because the days of watching B-flicks starring giant mutant bugs at the drive-in have passed us by. Still, who says we can’t continue to watch –and enjoy – some hokey bug flicks?

Arizona Blonde Tarantulas: Are They Dangerous?

Arizona Blonde Tarantula Arizona Blonde Tarantulas: Are They Dangerous?

In the Arizona desert, there is a wide variety of bugs and creepy crawlies. The tarantula is definitely a common arachnid in Arizona with 30 species known to plaque the land. One of the most common tarantulas is the Arizona Blonde tarantula.

The Arizona Blonde Tarantula

The Arizona blonde tarantula (also referred to as the Mexican blonde tarantula or western desert tarantula) is commonly seen during the summer months and rainy season of the year. It is a solitary tarantula, and the males will usually only emerge from their burrow to find a mate. Females are rarely seen out of their burrow. The male will die shortly after mating, if the female lets him live!

Tarantulas defend themselves with their venomous fangs and irritating hairs. In addition to a venomous bite, this arachnid can also brush some of its hairs on its predator. They are very difficult to remove and extremely irritating for all kinds of enemies. Despite these defensive skills, tarantulas can still be preyed upon by birds, lizards, snakes, wasps, and others.

Are Arizona Blonde Tarantulas Dangerous?

Arizona residents may have seen a Arizona blonde tarantula roaming around their property from time to time, and were left wondering if these ugly spiders are dangerous. Well rest assure, these spiders do not pose any significant threat to Arizona residents. While these tarantulas are venomous, their venom is not all that potent. These tarantulas do have the capability to bite humans, but this rarely happens. Arizona blonde tarantulas are very mild mannered and docile spiders. It’s for this very reason many people keep them as pets.

The only thing Arizona residents need to worry about when it comes to the Arizona Blonde tarantula is that they have protective hairs that can irritate other attackers, animals, and yes people’s skin.

How To Get Rid Of Wasps In Your Yard

3697970678 064537f363 How To Get Rid Of Wasps In Your Yard

One of the biggest pains when you want to make the most of spending time in your garden or around your pool can often be the presence of wasps. Wasps are unusual creatures in that unlike bees, they can be very aggressive because stinging something doesn’t cause them to die, and they can sting multiple times. This can make them quite a nuisance, and they tend to be prolific breeders in even cooler countries during the summer, so unlike other dangerous animals like tarantulas, scorpions and snakes, you aren’t safe from them even in places like Toronto or London! While the sting of a single wasp is only life threatening if you have an allergy, it can be extremely painful even if you aren’t allergic, and if you are attacked by a swarm it can be very dangerous even if you aren’t sensitive to the venom. For this reason, if you see a wasp nest or suspect there might be one somewhere on your property, it is important to deal with it.

Wasps only use their nests for one season and don’t return to them after their winter hibernation period. However, they can really spoil your outdoor time in summer and can also threaten the health of your family; or at the very least cause a very painful sting, means it is usually best to dispose of them.

Do Any Signs of Wasps Mean You Have a Nest?

6012359240 b0f05237cd How To Get Rid Of Wasps In Your Yard

Interestingly, while most animals are either social or lone, wasps come in both varieties. You get some wasps who live alone in solitary nests, which can be in plants or even in holes underground, and others who live communally in nests they form out of paper mixed with their saliva over time. Solitary wasps can be an annoyance, and can sting just as badly as social wasps; but they will not bring lots of friends with them, and their habitats won’t cause you any issues. Wasps living in communal nests, however, can be a very big problem if their home is in your garden, loft or the eaves of your house (all common places where wasps develop communities).

How to Dispose of a Wasp Nest

9646301667 f7a0014667 How To Get Rid Of Wasps In Your Yard

To kill the wasps in your nest you need to use quite potent pesticides, designed to kill wasps specifically. If you use the wrong kind of poison, like ones used for cockroaches or spiders, you will just end up with some very angry wasps buzzing around; and that is never good! You also have to watch the nest and assess the best way to approach it and withdraw from it based on how the wasps access the nest. If you are not confident about doing this and don’t have suitable clothes to wear, it is generally better just to call a professional pest control company who will take the wasps out for you and remove the remaining nest. They will also be able to make sure that all of the specimens have been killed so you aren’t left with homeless wasps parading your garden!

Hunt Scorpions With Black Light Flashlights

Black Light Scorpion Hunt Scorpions With Black Light Flashlights

If you are the adventurous type, who finds scorpions fascinating, as opposed to running the other direction screaming in fear at the sight of one, then you are in luck. You can easily spot them with a black light. In fact, black lighting scorpions is a common method used to control the scorpion populations around your home and property… And you can do it too! It’s actually quite the nighttime adventure!

Hunt Scorpions With Black Light Flashlights

Are you worried about scorpions entering you home; hiding out in your shoes and bed sheets, waiting to sting? If so, be proactive. One such way to be proactive is to hunt them with black light flashlights. It’s actually quite fun, if you are not creeped out by these stinging arachnids.

First you need a black light flashlight. Your best bet is an LED one. They are very bright, and will really light up the glowing scorpions. You can purchase black light flashlights at at your local hardware store. You really don’t need anything huge or fancy or extra powerful.

When it gets dark, head out in your yard with your new black light flashlight. Walk along the edges of your house, paying close attention to where the stucco or siding meets the foundation. Shine the black light in these areas. The glowing scorpions jump out at you when see them. Fences and concrete walls are also popular hangouts for scorpions. We actually call these areas, scorpion condominiums. Look there as well.

If you wish to exterminate the scorpions that you find, do so with closed toe shoes or boots. Do not handle the scorpions, as they’ll unleash a very painful and very toxic sting is disturbed. Sticky tape wrapped around the outside of a ruler works well to grab them.

Why Do Scorpions Glow Under Black Lights?

UV Scorpion Hunt Scorpions With Black Light Flashlights

Fluorescent chemicals, like beta-carboline, that are found in the exoskeleton of the scorpion cause them to glow an eerie neon bluish-green when exposed to ultraviolet light. From the scorpion’s crushing pinchers to its stinging tail; the scorpions entire body collects UV light and converts it into blue-green wavelengths to the human eye. This practice is known as fluorescence. As to the functionality of this process to the scorpion, scientists still aren’t completely sure of the benefit.

Types Of Arizona Scorpions To Hunt With Black Lights

In the State of Arizona, there are two common species of scorpions you’ll frequently find in your home and on your property. These two common species are the Arizona Bark scorpion, and the Desert Hairy scorpion.

Arizona Bark Scorpion

The most common species of scorpion found in Arizona, also happens to be the most venomous in the country. The Arizona Bark scorpion is a yellowish tan in color and can measure about two inches in length. It will come into your Arizona home, looking for water, shelter, and it’s favorite meal of crickets or roaches.

Desert Hairy Scorpion

Desert Hairy scorpions are bigger in size, compared to the Arizona Bark scorpion, reaching lengths of 5-6 inches. While their stings are painful (like getting stuck by a tack), they are not very dangerous. These scorpions don’t like to come into your home as much, but do still invade occasionally.

Mesa, Arizona Scorpion Control

If you don’t like the notion of inspecting your home and property every night with a black light flashlight in order to control your scorpion population; get Mesa scorpion control instead. Let a scorpion exterminator take your scorpion worries away.

Disgruntled Scorpion At Odds With Arizona Senator Jeff Flake

Scorpion Disgruntled Scorpion At Odds With Arizona Senator Jeff Flake

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake was recently voted number one on “The Hill’s 50 Most Beautiful” list; but this recognition didn’t exclude the politician from the dangers of living in the desert. Senator Flake tweeted out late Wednesday (August 14, 2013) that he had been stung by a scorpion.

Scorpion Stings Arizona Senator Jeff Flake

They say that if you live in the desert long enough, it’s inevitable that you will be stung by a scorpion. Arizona Senator Jeff Flake learned that very truth the hard way, when he was recently stung by an Arizona Bark Scorpion; the most venomous and dangerous scorpion species found in the United States. The good Senator tweeted the details late Wednesday night. See for yourself:

Scorpion Sting Jeff Flake Disgruntled Scorpion At Odds With Arizona Senator Jeff Flake

Senator Flake’s spokesperson released a statement claiming that the experience was painful, and his left arm was numb, but overall “not a big deal.”

Arizona Bark Scorpions

Arizona Bark Scorpions are the most common pest in Arizona, and they are also the most reviled. They are best described as being just plain creepy. They hide in our shoes and in our bed sheets, and when we least expect it… OUCH! These malevolent arachnids sting, and those stings hurt! Arizona Bark Scorpions are considered to be the most dangerous and most deadly scorpion species in the United States. Senator Flake learned that first hand, as he was stung and his entire left arm went numb. Bark scorpions will come inside our Arizona homes looking for their favorite meal of either a roach or a cricket. They are also drawn to moisture, in need of water just like you and I.

Arizona Scorpion Control

As Arizona Senator Flake can probably attest, being stung by a scorpion is not very fun; despite him playing it off as being no big deal and just a part of desert life. If you are growing tired of this part of desert life, seeing scorpions inside your home than get professional scorpion control in Arizona!

Pest Control Tips for Contamination-Free Pantries and Cupboards

Rice Weevils Pest Control Tips for Contamination Free Pantries and Cupboards

Finding an insect here and there in your kitchen isn’t a pleasant experience, but it’s probably nothing compared to discovering your pantry or cupboards and all the food in them has been invaded by bugs or rodents. Taking preventive pest control methods into your own hands will go a long way in keeping uninvited guests from helping themselves to your stored products.

Inspect and Clean

It’s recommended that you clear out your pantry and cupboards at least once a year and closely inspect all food for any signs of pests. Cereals, pasta, bakery mixes, pastries, powdered milk, dried fruits and pet food are commonly vulnerable to contamination from Indian meal moths, ants, roaches, beetles, weevils and mice. After checking each product that you’ve had stored, dispose of anything that shows evidence of being tampered with or that has been left unsealed in an outside trash receptacle. Then all shelving should be vacuumed out and carefully cleaned with soap and water.

Keep an Eye Out While You Grocery Shop

Many times, the pests you find living in and feeding on the dry foods in your pantry and cupboards have been unknowingly brought home from the grocery store. Examine all packaged and boxed products for any openings or suspicious looking punctures and tears. Small holes are especially indicative of little critters since that’s all it takes for several kinds of insects to be able to find their way in. It’s easy to forget about certain products once you put them up in a cupboard or on the back of a pantry shelf, so it’s important not to purchase more than you think you’ll use in a reasonable amount of time. It doesn’t take too long for some insects to reproduce, and food that has been sitting for awhile is the perfect place for creepy crawlies to take up residence.

Mouse in Bread Pest Control Tips for Contamination Free Pantries and Cupboards

Store Food in Sealed Containers

An effective way of maintaining your pest control efforts in the kitchen is to always store non-refrigerated food in tightly secured containers no matter how impenetrable you may think the original packaging is. You would be surprised to find out what the sharp teeth of many pests can cut through. Glass, plastic or metal storage is perfect for keeping most foods and ingredients in and will even preserve their freshness for longer. Just rolling up bags, especially those containing pet food, is an open invitation for insects and rodents to come right on in.

Consistently Clean Kitchen Surfaces

Cleaning up spills and vacuuming up crumbs right away will go far in preventing pests from entering your home. Make certain the areas around all appliances are free from any specks of food that would attract a scavenging intruder.

Being conscientious about your food storage and the cleanliness of everything in your kitchen will help ward off the nightmare of finding that bugs or mice have made themselves comfortable in your pantry and cupboard products. If you begin to notice any indication of their presence, it may be best to have a pest control company come out and prevent any further infestation.

Cockroaches 101- Everything You Need To Know About These Nasty Pests

3639234792 33b5e6fe46 Cockroaches 101  Everything You Need To Know About These Nasty Pests

Cockroaches are typically seen as unwanted pests, although this isn’t entirely true. The vast majority of cockroaches we see on a daily basis do in fact invade our homes, cause a nuisance, and definitely are pests. However, certain varieties of cockroaches are essential to the environment and will actually help to recycle organic materials which are decaying or dying. With that being said, the cockroaches that we consider as pests are known to carry various diseases and can emit some pretty disgusting odors.

Some cockroaches can measure over 2 inches in length and are most often found in environments where waste food is present. This will typically be kitchens and restaurants. Cockroaches will have six legs and two antennae and certain species even have wings, thus making them even more of a nuisance, although it must be said that winged cockroaches aren’t particularly great at flying. Most cockroaches will make chirping noises of some sorts, although there are certain species which can get extremely vocal.

Facts About Cockroaches

3683870201 71fc42a016 Cockroaches 101  Everything You Need To Know About These Nasty Pests

  • There are a wide variety of ways in which cockroaches may enter your home. Most typically this will be through cracks or crevices in the walls, floors or ceilings. They can also enter your home through the sewage and drainage systems and also the pipes. Cockroaches have been known to be brought in from outside on your person or in shopping bags, etc.
  • Cockroaches will be particularly attracted to the home environment, as they will find warmth, food and water, and a place to nest. In fact, this is the ideal place for them to start breeding.
  • You should be aware that cockroaches breed at an extremely fast rate, and if you happen to spot just one cockroach there is likely to be plenty more nearby.
  • An interesting fact is that cockroaches are usually nocturnal creatures. Unfortunately, if you happen to spot a cockroach during the day this may a sign that you have an extremely severe infestation of these pests. The likelihood is that their “resting place” has been severely overcrowded and they have simply been forced out into the open before nightfall.
  • As many of you may be aware, cockroaches can aggravate asthma and other types of allergies. Cockroaches will shed their skins, they leave droppings behind, and of course many die on a daily basis. Unfortunately, if you are especially prone to allergies or if you have young children in your home this can be very dangerous.
  • Cockroaches are fantastic at hiding and you may even have a possible infestation without even knowing it because you haven’t actually seen a cockroach with your own eyes. Even if you purchase insecticides or other chemicals to rid yourself of a potential cockroach problem, you should know that their eggs are actually protected from these. So, even if you happen to kill a number of live cockroaches you will have done little to harm their eggs and a future onslaught of cockroaches.

This is typically why many people turn to professional services in order to rid their homes of cockroaches. You will need a certain amount of knowledge about cockroaches and various, specialized materials and equipment.
