Bees and Wasps

Category : Pests

Overview:
Although bees and wasps are environmentally beneficial, they should not be near your home and family. They can be dangerous to people and often destructive to structures.

During spring the spring hives form and colonies emerge as the season continues. Before fall bees and wasps are numerous and can become easily agitated as they seek pollen, water or shelter.

Ray’s will safely and carefully remove bees or wasps and their nests from your home or property. Exposed nests may be removed on the day of service depending on the activity and size of nest. In other cases we’ll come back on a day when it is safe to remove the nests.

We will create a full report describing the treatment and how you can protect your home from further infestation.
What happens if bee or wasp nests form again? Don’t worry. Ray’s Termite & Pest Control, which covers 40 common pests, will ensure your home and property are protected throughout the entire year

Roaches

Cockroaches are filthy pests. They can spread disease, contaminate our food and cause allergies and even asthma. Cockroaches can pick up germs on their legs and bodies as they crawl through decaying matter or sewage and then transfer these germs to food or onto food surfaces. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), they are proven or suspected carriers of the organisms causing diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, leprosy, plague, typhoid fever and viral diseases such as poliomyelitis.

The American cockroach is also commonly known as the water bug, flying water bug or palmetto bug. These large cockroaches can grow to exceed 50 cm in length. Although the American cockroach is a major pest in the United States, they are native to the tropical climates of Africa. Some evidence has suggested that the American cockroach was brought to North America aboard ships.

They are a peridomestic species and live primarily outdoors. In southern states, they are common in shady, humid areas like flowerbeds and around trees. In northern areas, they are usually found in sewers and drains. Climate changes or food shortage can cause them to move indoors.

Ray’s Termite & Pest Control encourages people to help reduce cockroach populations by removing all food and unnecessary water sources, sealing all cracks and crevices, vacuuming and removing shelter sites like cardboard and paper. To effectively manage a serious cockroach infestation, you must correctly identify the type of cockroach causing the infestation, which is why it is important to contact a pest control professional.
