Clean Sheets, Hot Blooded Meals, and 5-Star Sleeping Accommodations

Welcome To Our Home

Welcome To Our Home

When opening up your home to travelers for lodging, not all guests are polite. One of the most common unwanted guest is the Ctenocephalides felis, or better known as the cat flea. With measurements about one-eighth of an inch long and the ability to leap upward at least 12 inches, the adult cat flea is capable of gaining access into your home or yard in many ways. In addition, an adult flea spends most of its time residing on the host pet consuming 10-15 blood meals per day. Unlike a bed-and-breakfast, a flea infestation is not luxurious, relaxing, or pleasant.

The adult cat fleas’ eyes and antennae are utilized to identify carbon dioxide, heat from warm blooded animals, floor vibrations produced by an approaching person or pet, and changes in air currents, all in an attempt to find a hot meal. Only minutes after jumping onboard, fleas use their slender proboscis (beak) that extends forward, to pierce the skin and begin feeding. Once fed, the female and male mate. Within two days the female flea starts laying eggs in the fur of your pet.

The eggs resemble tiny white pearls (oval shaped). Most of the eggs fall off the host pet and hatch in the surrounding environment (furniture, dog bed, carpeting, and wherever else the host pet sleeps or spends time). Hatching may occur within two to five days under sufficient conditions of warm temperature and relatively high humidity. The entire life cycle of cat fleas usually is completed in 14-28 days under suitable conditions.

Description and Characteristics

  • Fleas also like breakfast in bed
  • Females require blood for the development of eggs
  • Newly hatched young adult fleas usually feed right away
  • Adult cat fleas can survive weeks indoors without feeding
  • Since cat fleas do not have wings, they are unable to fly
  • Fleas can also transmit tapeworms and bacterial infections
  • Adult cat fleas are reddish-brown with a laterally flattened body
  • Female cat fleas tend to be slightly larger than their male counterparts
  • An adult cat flea’s body is divided into three parts: the head, thorax, and abdomen
  • Adult fleas have three pairs of legs with the back pair greatly enlarged for jumping ability

Since fleas reproduce rapidly, and with the capability of laying 30-50 eggs per day for a total close to 2,000 eggs that develop into more breeding adults over her lifetime, treating the host pet’s environment is critical when attempting to control and prevent flea infestations. Vacuuming is critical to managing a flea infestation.

If You Think You Have a Flea Infestation

If You Think You Have a Flea Infestation

VACUUM – Vacuuming will suck up many of the developing pupae, larvae and eggs before they hatch. In addition, vacuum beneath furniture, cushions, beds, and throw rugs. Since vacuuming picks up various stages of the flea’s development, it helps reduce the population. But beware, fleas continue their life cycle in the vacuum bag. When done vacuuming remove and seal the vacuum bag in a garbage bag preventing escape. Place in an outdoor trash container.

Fleas will gather at the base of the tail, back of the legs, neck, and shoulder blades of the host pet. Be sure to groom your pet with a flea comb, removing all fleas. Have your pet treated by a veterinarian. Clean your home and wash all linens especially pet bedding.

A homeowner should see a significant reduction in flea population if the various methods listed above are applied. Eliminating flea infestations requires knowledge, attention to detail and perseverance.

Little Tick Big Problem

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

Tick

May is National Lyme Disease Awareness Month

As the temperature rises, ticks are creating problems for pet owners and their pets. Tick diseases like Ehrlichia, Lyme’s and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are serious health concerns. The potential damage to internal organs and joint pain can be attributed to Lyme disease contracted through tick bites.

“We hear so much about Lyme disease, but Rocky Mountain spotted fever has increased sharply. This can be frightening since ticks are small and their bites are usually painless. The host may be unaware of a bite,” says Dave Clayborn, Vice President of Operations for Southern Pest Control.

Tick Family

Interesting Facts

  • Ticks have 8 legs
  • Ticks are not classified as insects
  • Ticks require a blood meal to survive
  • Lyme disease affects people of all ages
  • Ticks can live 200 days without food or water
  • Ticks prefer to hide in grass, shrubs, and wooded areas
  • Ticks can carry the bacteria which causes Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
  • Ticks do not fly or jump they simple latch onto (process called questing) a passing host (animal/human)

Tick Prevention

Protect Yourself from Tick Bites

  • Health officials warn that with such a wet winter the tick population has increased.
  • Taking precautions can help reduce the risk of infection related to serious diseases carried by ticks. Be aware of grassy landscape, wooded or brushy areas to reduce the risk of tick bites.
  • Some prevention tips include removing all brush and leaves, maintain and mow lawns short and have pesticide treatments applied in the spring or early summer along the edges of wooded yards and trails.
  • Wear light colored clothing when you are outside. Tuck your pant legs into your socks.
  • Smaller than adults and difficult to see or feel, tick nymphs the size of a poppy seed can carry the same harmful diseases as adult ticks. After outdoor activities be sure to perform tick inspections of one’s entire body.
  • To avoid potentially severe complications, seek medical care if you develop symptoms including, but not limited to, joint pain, muscle aches, fatigue, fever, headache, rash and or swelling.

Prompt removal is important since ticks typically require 24-48 hours of feeding before they can successfully transmit infections like Lyme disease.

Hobo Spiders

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

Coming to a City Near You

Spider

Arriving from Europe, the Hobo spider was first discovered in the Pacific Northwest United States in the 1930’s. With the help of railways and hitching rides with humans along major highways, the Hobo spider has migrated eastward, as well as some southern states.

The Hobo spider is a member of the funnel-web spider family. These spiders are known for creating (overlying strands of silk) funnel shaped webs to entangle prey preventing escape before attacking. Hobo spiders seek areas that support tunnel formation such as, holes, cracks, or crevices.

Since the male Hobo Spiders substantially wander about seeking a mate from early July to October, they are responsible for more bites than the females. Shortly after mating the male dies. The female hobo Spider lays its eggs in September and they hatch during late spring. The female Hobo Spiders also dies shortly after laying her four egg cases (capable of producing over 400 eggs). The juvenile spiders hatch in June.

Interesting Facts

  • Hobo spiders have extremely poor vision
  • An escape tunnel is built in the back of the web
  • Hobo spiders do not attack humans (they prefer to flee than fight)
  • Hobo spiders are poor climbers and rarely found above ground level
  • Hobo spiders are fast runners, up to 3 feet per second, when moving from place to place.
  • Webs may be found in low, out of the way, dark places such as basements, window wells and crawl spaces.

Current evidence and findings conclude that hobo spider bites cause only mild pain and redness (blisters and skin problems have also been documented). Spiders in the United States that have toxic venom dangerous to humans include the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider, but not the hobo spider.

Spider Prevention

  • Repair screens on all doors and windows
  • Be sure to inspect interior of stored shoes before wearing
  • Store clothing, shoes, and other items in secure storage bins
  • Repair and seal any access points such as cracks in the exterior foundation of the home
  • Remove all debris (leaves, woodpiles) from around exterior of home
  • Contact a pest professional

When performing outdoor chores (gardening, yard work) or cleaning out the attic, wear a long sleeve shirt, long pants, gloves, and boots.

Thorn Bug

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

Master of Disguise – Thorn Bug

Thorn Bug and Nymphs

An elongated ornate shaped horn, pronotum (slightly curved spine), appears on their backs. This horn is used as a deterrent for predators. It also acts as camouflage allowing the thorn bug to appear as a thorn, thus blending with the plant’s foliage.

Female thorn bugs are known for being great caregivers. Since the adult females guard, and tend to their brood, the nymphs have an astonishing 50% survival rate. Adult and juvenile thorn bugs are active all year, especially during the cooler months.

Thorn bugs are known for their unique ability to create multiple sounds for communication. Adult male thorn bugs fly from plant to plant attempting to find a mate using certain sounds as a courtship call. Other communication consists of warning signals (vibrating noises) announcing the arrival and the location of any predators.

Interesting Facts

  • Greatest predator – the wasp
  • Thorn bugs are harmless to humans
  • Mature thorn bugs are roughly ½ inch in length
  • Thorn bugs diets consists of various legumes and fruit trees
  • Thorn bugs reside in Florida, Southern Texas down to Central America.
  • The adults and juveniles both feed on the nutrients of the same trees they reside
  • Adult thorn bugs are green or yellow with reddish lines and brownish markings
  • Adult males and females of the same species can sometimes have quite different pronotal shapes or colors
  • Thorn bugs utilize their piercing beaks to penetrate plant stems, thus allowing them to feed on the nutrients (sap) within a plant (legumes and other ornamental and fruit trees)
  • Female thorn bugs embed their group of cream-colored fertilized eggs in the tender bark of trees. After 20 days the eggs hatch. They will breed four generations annually.
  • The female thorn bugs pass on a chemical deterrent to her offspring, thus making them distasteful to potential predators
  • The adult females guard their eggs and remain as protector and caregiver throughout their development which may take up to several months

Camel Spiders

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

Do Not Let the Name Fool You

Is it a scorpion or a spider?

The camel spider has the characteristics of both a spider and a scorpion. The camel spider has a distinctly segmented opisthosoma (posterior) that resembles a scorpion, but without an elongated tail equipped with a stinger. Camel spiders breathe with a trachea, like that of a scorpion, which allows for fast oxygen intake thus helping them move quickly. Camel spiders have been recorded running up to 10 miles per hour.

Most often found in dry climates deserts in Middle Eastern countries, southwestern United States, and Mexico, camel spiders prefer to hide in crevices between rocks as well as under logs and within underground burrows to keep cool when daytime temperatures are their highest. They hunt at night when the temperatures are not as hot. Camel spiders are primarily nocturnal and flee from the sun.

Some believed the camel spider got its name because it eats the insides of a camel’s stomach. Not true. However, camel spiders are known to chase camels’ shadows to enjoy the coolness of their shade, while hiding from the sun.

Interesting Facts

  • Camel spiders have 8 legs
  • Camel spiders are not venomous
  • Camel spiders grow to 6 inches in length
  • A camel spider is tan and dark brown in color
  • The fine hairs on the body of a camel spider help to insulate it from the desert heat
  • Camel spiders are not aggressive towards humans, but if cornered or threatened they will bite
  • Camel spiders eat everything from termites, wasps, beetles, insects, bugs, lizards, and silverfish to scorpions, spiders
  • Predators – Toads, Scorpions, Bats

Camel spiders are solitary animals, except for mating. After an 11-day gestation period, the female camel spider digs a burrow in the soil and lays from 50-200 eggs in a single nesting. She will reside in the burrow until her eggs hatch surviving on stored fat. Three to four weeks later the eggs should hatch. Camel spiders have a lifespan up to one year.

It Is That Time Of Year, Already?

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

Fall Pest Prevention Tips

With the cooler temperatures and the leaves changing color, now is the time to play defense. Not on a football field, but around your home. Many bugs and rodents seek shelter from the cold weather by taking up residence in your home to overwinter. Overwintering is the process when bugs seek warm climate control environments to hunker down until the return of warmer weather.

It is best to be proactive rather than reactive when dealing with unwanted house guests. Perform a detailed inspection attempting to locate any pest entrances around the exterior of home. Seal all gaps around doors and windows with weather stripping, siding, and pipes entering residence with silicone caulk. For gaps too wide to caulk, stuff copper mesh to prevent pest entry. Rodents are unable to gnaw through the copper mesh. Be sure to keep all shrubbery and tree branches trimmed around the home reducing nesting areas and removing any gateways in contact with the home.

Additional Fall Pest Prevention Tips

  • Seal and cap chimney
  • Repair or replace any torn screens
  • Do not store firewood near the home
  • Seal all pet food in slick plastic containers
  • Do not forget to clean out all gutters removing all leaves and debris
  • Use a dehumidifier to reduce moisture in basements, crawl spaces and attics.
  • Use gravel around the exterior base of home, rather than mulch, to reduce moisture

If you see an infestation, contact a Southern & Sovereign Pest Control today. One of our pest experts will assess and determine the most effective methods of extermination for your specific problem. Call 1-800-627-0577 for more details or to schedule an appointment.

Fish Out Of Water?

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

You guessed it. They get their name for their likeness to fish. Drawn to moist areas, silver metallic color like scales of a fish, and side to side movements that replicate a fish’s tail through the water. These wingless nocturnal creatures do not bite or spread disease. They are harmless to humans.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Silverfish have six legs
  • Silverfish have threadlike antennae
  • Silverfish are known as good climbers
  • Silverfish move extremely fast on flat surfaces
  • Silverfish measure about ¾ of an inch in length
  • Silverfish are oval with a round head and have an elongated abdomen area

DID YOU KNOW

Silverfish females can deliver one to three eggs per day. Hiding the eggs in cracks throughout the home, including the attic, for protection. The life expectancy for most silverfish is about three years. Silverfish thrive in moist, humid environments throughout the United States. Due to their compound eyes’ sensitivity to light, silverfish prefer dark undisturbed places. They prefer to hide or rest in tight cracks or crevices during the day.

Silverfish are drawn starches and sugars. In addition, they prefer natural materials, fabrics, paper, wallpaper, magazines, envelopes, and books made with glue.

PREVENTION

  • Keep food items such as pasta, rice, cereal, flour, sugar, and pet food in tight containers.
  • Minimize or eliminate clutter and junk stored items. Store items in airtight hard plastic containers, not cardboard boxes.
  • Keep high-humidity areas such unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, and attics moisture free by circulating the air with fans and/or using dehumidifiers.
  • Silverfish will enter homes to avoid extreme weather. Inspect for and seal entrance around window and door frames, utility pipes and vents. Repair leaky pipes and drains. Eliminate or repair any moldy or wet wood.

If you see a sign of a silverfish infestation, contact a Southern & Sovereign Pest Control today. One of our pest experts will assess and determine the most effective methods of extermination for your specific problem. Call 1-800-627-0577 for more details or to schedule an appointment.

Time Sure Does Fly

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog


There are two basic categories of cicadas, named accordingly, annual cicadas and periodical cicadas. The annual Cicadas are present from July to September and, depending on the species, periodical cicadas emerge in early summer after 13 to 17 years as nymphs.

The nymphs, after growing underground and when ready, will build mud tubes to burrow out of the ground. Millions of nymphs will emerge at the same time seeking a place to molt into an adult and find a mate. Once an adult, the males will woo a mate with a loud, high-pitched clicking sound that may be heard up to one mile away. Only the males produce this sound. After mating, the adult periodical cicadas only live another two to four weeks.


The females lay their eggs in twigs on trees. When the eggs hatch after three months, a nymph falls onto the ground, where it will then burrow and start the process all over again to ensure their brood’s survival.

  • Cicadas do not bite or sting
  • Cicadas are 1 to 1 1/2 inches long
  • Cicadas have noticeably short antennae
  • Cicadas have prominent eyes set wide apart
  • Cicadas are greenish brown oval-shaped with black markings on the body
  • Cicadas have four wings with the first pair being much longer than their abdomen

Do You Think Ticks Care About Social Distancing?

http://www.southernpestcontrol.com/blog

Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock.

It is that time of year. It is beautiful outside. Plenty of time to do some gardening. Or spend time with family and pets in the yard.

Ticks thrive in high-humidity areas, with non-managed landscape, overgrown brush and leaf litter. They are known to climb grasses and shrubs then hitch themselves to a host passing by. The tick drinks the host’s blood until it becomes engorged. It is during this time that dangerous pathogens can enter the host’s bloodstream. Of all blood sucking arthropods, ticks transmit the widest array of diseases.

(Graphic provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

Precautions can help reduce the risk of infection related to serious diseases carried by ticks

  • Walk in the center of trails
  • Remove ticks from your body
  • Shower soon after being outdoors
  • Maintain and mow grass frequently
  • Avoid tick habitat such as densely wooded areas
  • Use repellent that contains 20 percent or more DEET
  • Remove any brush and all leaf litter around the home and edge of yard
  • Wear clothes that will help shield you from ticks, long-sleeved shirts and long pants
  • Protect your pets by inspecting them daily for ticks, especially after they spend time outdoors

American dog ticks are most numerous along roadsides, paths, old fields, marshy areas and trails in brushy woodlands or meadows with tall grass or weeds.

(Graphic provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

Diseases that may be transmitted by ticks

  • Tularemia
  • Babesiosis
  • Ehrlichiosi
  • Lyme disease
  • Heartland Virus
  • Boutonneuse Fever
  • Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
  • Tick-Borne meningoencephalitis
  • Crimean–Congo Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Typhus, Rickettsial diseases (spotted fever and Q fever)

Protect your home, family and pets from flea, tick and fire ant infestations.
