The Most Common Pests in Utah: The Basics

What are the most common pests in Utah and how can you identify them? The first step in pest eradication is pest identification. Keep in mind that not all pests need to be eradicated. Some pests are helpful and should be left alone. By learning some basic characteristics of pests, you will have a better understanding of pest prevention techniques to keep your home bug free. Below are some of the most common pests in Utah.   

ants in utah

Ants

Ants come in different sizes and shapes. They are members of colonies that consist of a queen and many, many workers. They are tiny insects that many come into your house in large numbers in search of food and shelter. The best strategy for keeping ants out of your home is to keep food stored in airtight containers and spraying a pest control barrier around the outside of your home. Organic pest control methods such as spraying vinegar can also be effective against ants on a small scale.

 

 

cockroach in Utah

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are winged but flightless insects with six legs and two antennae. They like staying in cracks and crevices, especially around the kitchen and drainage because of the food sources. They cause infestations very quickly because they like staying in germ-infested areas like sewer pipes. Reduce your chances of seeing cockroaches in your home by keeping your home clean. Without proper home hygiene habits such as taking the trash out regularly and keeping dirty dishes out of the sink, conventional pest control methods will prove ineffective against cockroaches.

 

termites in Utah

Termites

Termites are wood boring insects that rarely go outdoors. They stay inside wood structures and build tunnels there. The best way to identify the presence of termites near you is by looking for burrows in the wood. You can reduce the risk of a termite infestation by keeping rotting wood away from your home. Severe termite infestations require expensive pest control interventions such as tenting a home. It is best to avoid drastic measures by checking for wood carving piles, small pinpoint holes in drywall, and wood that feels hollow when you knock on it. 

 

 

bedbugs in Utah

Bedbugs

Bedbugs are small, flat, oval insects. They hang out in cracks and crevices, and especially in beds. Young bedbugs are white or tan before feeding on blood. After feeding, their color changes to reddish-brown. A tall tell sign of bedbugs often includes itchy blood spots on your skin and corresponding blood spots on your bed sheets. The cleanliness of your home is a leading factor in whether or not you may have a bed bug infestation.  

 

 

mice problem in Utah County

Rodents

Rodents such as mice and voles easily make the list for the most common pests in Utah. They come in different sizes, some small, others big, but they cause the same level of destruction. Rodents have large front teeth that they use for chewing. You can detect their fecal matter and chewed residue in areas they visit. If you have a vole problem, you will also probably notice burrowed paths on your grass. Mice and other rodents transmit diseases and are better kept away from human habitats. Keep rodents away from unwanted areas by properly sealing entrances to your home, keeping your house clean, and setting out traps or bait stations for occasional intruders. 

 

common pests in Utah

Spiders

Spiders are often found in dark and undisturbed areas. They come in different shapes, colors, and sizes with standard features being the fangs, eight legs, and antennae. Spiders are wingless, but most of them can move quickly because they are fast runners. They rarely go indoors except in search of other pests for food. While spiders can be an effective form of pest control against other smaller pests, they are typically unwanted guests inside your home.  Keep them out by eliminating other pests indoors and maintaining a pest control barrier around your home.

 

 

earwigs in Utah

Earwigs

Earwigs are common outdoor pests in Utah that are mostly found in gardens or flowerbeds. They have a flat body and two pairs of wings. Their most distinctive feature is the pincers located at the back of the abdomen. They are harmless and will only use the pincers for defense. It is best to leave earwigs alone if they are outdoors and are not bothering anyone.  If they get inside your home, you can gently take them outside by sliding a paper under them. Prevent a potential infestation of earwigs by using a natural or commercial grade pest control product.

 

 

Silverfish in Utah

Silverfish

Silverfish are small silvery grey pests that live in dark and damp places. Warm and moist areas like the bathroom are common places for them to hide. They are wingless, and most of their activities take place at night. Silverfish are attracted to the starches found in soap, paper, and wall paper glue.  While silverfish are harmless, they can create an annoying infestation if left unchecked. You can get rid of silverfish with bates and other specialized pest control products. You can prevent a future silverfish infestation by reducing the humidity in your home by fixing leaky pipes, using bathroom fans, encouraging proper ventilation, and keeping books and other starchy materials tidy.

 

bees and wasps in UtahBees and Wasps

Both bees and wasps are distantly related but come from different families. Some species are solitary while others prefer to live in 

colonies. They have stingers and will use them when they feel threatened. Both undergo a complete metamorphosis, with their larvae having a maggot-like look. Most of their activities are restricted to daytime.  Both bees and wasps can serve helpful purposes, but they are typically unwanted in or around your home.  You can get rid of bees and wasps using low cost, environmentally friendly methods such as spraying vinegar, using moth balls, or spreading cinnamon. For larger bee and wasp problems, it’s a good idea to contact a professional pest control company who can safely eradicate them.

voles vs. mice

Voles vs. Mice | Spot the Difference

Knowing the type of rodent you are dealing with is the first step to safe eradication. Voles and mice have an almost similar appearance, but a closer look at their features will reveal a difference in their look.

They also have different behavior and habitat preferences making them differ in their adaptation to different environments. While the mouse is an indoor rodent, the vole prefers the outdoors for exploration. Mice also stick to a warm and food stocked building while voles can survive outdoors in the cold winters and warm summers.

Appearance

There are five different species of voles in Utah. Most of them measure between 5-8 inches long. They have a stout body with short tails that have more fur. The eyes of voles are also larger, and they have more prominent and rounded ears.

Mice, on the other hand, are less heavy than voles. They appear in five different species around Utah, namely; deer mice, field mice, white-footed mice, cactus, and Eurasian harvest mice. Mice have a long tail which is about the same length as their body. They also have grayish brown fur with an underside of gray.

Habitat

It’s common to spot both voles and mice in the house. However, voles are usually one-time visitors that do not dwell indoors for long. Voles live at the ground level in yards where they can feed on roots and plants. They are dominant both in the cold and warm seasons, and their runway trails are visible after the melting of snow.

Mice like the indoors and will visit buildings in search of food and shelter. They stay in hidden in homes or other buildings, often in areas that are close to the wall. You will mostly spot them in kitchens, basements, and dark corners where mice nests and predatory activities are safe.

Behavior

Voles prefer open areas that are ideal for digging burrows. They are herbivorous and will mostly feed on roots, bulbs, and the bark of trees. They often chew on tree trunks that are covered with mulch or snow at the bottom. The chewing can sometimes be damaging, leading to the death of a tree due to the irregular transfer of nutrients.

Mice live in secluded areas that are close to a food source. They have a habit of biting through stored foods, and it is common to observe chewed food particles in their paths. They always leave their droppings around food sources, which is the first sign of an infestation. For nesting, you will observe soft house items stashed correctly in a dark area. Some mice share nests, and it is possible to have 2-3 families living together.

Voles and mice have adverse effects around human habitation. Voles destroy the lawn and will feed on plants in your yard or garden. Mice are a health hazard because they carry diseases. Their contact with your food supply means possible contamination and spread of diseases. To effectively get rid of voles and mice in your surroundings, contact Bamboo Pest Control.

How often should you spray for pest control

How Often Should You Spray for Pest Control?

Prevention is better than treatment when it comes to pest control. With most pests getting into our homes when we least expect them, creating a year-round barrier is vital. Many factors determine how often you should spray for pest control, but what is most important is that the pests go away from your home and stay away for good.

Level of Infestation

Some pests invade in large numbers, and they come ready to destroy. An example is the termites that destroy your wooden structures leaving you with huge losses. For such kinds of infestation, you have to treat your home every month for a thorough clean up. Failure to spray often may lead to the reemergence of the colonies and extreme damage to your property.

Types of Pests

Most types of spider are easy to detect, spray, and get rid of in our homes. Other pests, however, like German cockroaches are resistant to most chemicals and require regular treatment to keep them away. A comparison between the two pests shows a need to apply monthly treatments for the stubborn insects and apply quarterly barriers for pests that are seasonal in our homes.

Size of Property

It is recommended that large properties with many secluded places be inspected and sprayed every month. Smaller buildings that are easy to monitor daily can benefit from the quarterly spraying of the perimeters.

Types of Chemicals

The types of chemicals you are using also determines how often you should spray for pest control. Pests react differently to various types of chemicals. Others even gain resistance to certain pesticides over time. It is, therefore, essential to adjust the application processes of the pesticide over time.

The adjustments may also require checking for the effects of weather changes to the action of the chemicals. A wash down of some chemicals may require a repeat application especially during the rainy season.

Clean Surroundings

A clean surrounding is less likely to experience massive pest infestation. The spraying procedures can be done quarterly or even semi-annually depending on the environment.

To maintain a clean surrounding, ensure that the surfaces are cleaned regularly, food items are well covered, and that your waste is disposed of correctly.

Areas of Application

It is vital to create a pest barrier all around our properties. But some areas, like the indoors, are sensitive and special care should be taken when spraying. If you have children and pets around, you may want to have the inside of your home sprayed less frequently. The areas that can benefit from the monthly sprays are the lawns and perimeters of the house.

Contact Bamboo Pest Control

Consult the professionals at Bamboo Pest Control for insights on how often you should spray for pest control. We are well equipped with knowledge on specific pest behavior and can offer the best advice on the timing of applications.

spray indoor pest control

Do we need to Spray Pest Control Inside Structures?

The answer of whether or not pest control should be sprayed inside a home, office, or other structure depends on a variety of factors.  These may include the kinds of pests you are dealing with, the environment, and the safety measures that will be taken.  Before you can decide on whether to use a pesticide indoors or not, here are a few pointers for your consideration;

The Kind of Pests You are Dealing With

Small infestations of pests like rats in the house may not warrant you to spray a chemical. Glue boards can be used to trap and eliminate most of these pests. Other pests such as ants and spiders who may live in the wall voids may warrant spraying pest control inside in addition to a barrier that can be sprayed outside of a structure.

The Environment

Pests prefer to stay where it is warm and cosy so you may notice more pests indoors in the winter in places like Utah, where pests prefer to warmth of your home or office compared to the cold outdoors. This may necessitate spraying pest control inside structures.  

How to Safely Use Pest Control Indoors

If you decide to use a pesticide indoors, there are certain conditions to fulfill before, during, and after application.

  • Cover or remove food and other movable kitchen items before the spraying begins.
  • Keep your pets away from the house when applying the pesticides.
  • Apply the pesticides in the right areas like the door hinges, floor, or sliding board.
  • Avoid spraying pesticides in areas where people are in close contact with.
  • Close the doors before spraying. Leave the house for a while for the spray to take effect, then come back and open the doors and windows and clean the floor.

There are risks associated with using a pesticide indoors. The most common one would be the inhaling of the spray or vapor during application. There is also the possibility of direct contact through contaminated hands or skin contacts.Because of the health hazards that are associated with chemical use, it is essential that you seek immediate medical attention in case of harmful contact. Simple first aid procedures like cleaning the affected area with water will help reduce the severity of the reactions. If you are still worried about whether you made wrongful contact with the chemicals, here are some symptoms to check out for;

  • headache
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • dizziness
  • muscle cramps
  • fatigue
  • sweating

It is because of the risks associated with spraying pest control inside that it is important to seek the help of pest control professionals. The exterminators at Bamboo Servicing have gained knowledge on how to handle and administer pesticides safely. They will keep your family and environment safe.

pest control barrier Utah

What Does a Pest Control Barrier Around your Home Mean?

Pests are always lurking in the outdoors, looking for a warm place to live and searching for available food. Without a proper pest control barrier, the pests will crawl or jump through entrances and nest in your home. Their presence in our spaces is never welcome, and this is because they spread diseases, damage structures, or spoil our food.

Physical vs. Chemical Pest Control Barriers

To keep creepy pests away from your home, you will need to create pest control barriers that they cannot pass. Barriers can be physical, such as meshed shields around entry points like chimneys windows. Barriers can also be chemical in nature, and can be sprayed around the yard to repel pests.

The use of granules as another form of a chemical barrier can also be a good option. Granules prevent the emergence of ground pests that may be in the yards neighboring yours. Keeping the ground bugs away means avoiding the presence of other prey that feed on them. Most of what is considered as prey to smaller insects may find it appealing to seek shelter in your home. An example of this is are snakes that feed on rodents. They may be out digging for moles one minute and safely looking for a resting place in your clutter-filled garage in the next minute. Due to the inconveniences that some of these pests bring, it is essential to carry out a pest control barrier both indoors and outdoors.

Pest Control Barrier Steps

The proper placement of barriers is essential, and these steps will help you achieve maximum success.

  • Identify the kind of pests in your locality.
  • Plan proper pesticide application based on seasonal migration of pests and when large infestations occur.

  • Choose the right pesticide for the job.
  • Start your treatment program.
  • Schedule frequent follow-ups to check on the effectiveness of the barriers.

Conclusion

Bamboo Pest Control provides a pest control barrier plan that ensures year-round protection for your home. The program also includes the regular application of pest control barriers in case there is an emergence of new pest infestations. Contact Bamboo Pest Control for customized pest control recommendations today.

mice problem in Utah County

Mice Problems in Utah County

Have you ever heard a scurrying noise around your floor or in the kitchen? Have you noticed suspicious droppings around your home? If so, you may have mice infestation. All they need is a source of food and safe shelter and they will not leave your home. Mice problems in Utah county are very common. Utah is the premier habitat for mice. According to the Natural History Museum of Utah, there are 36 different mice species in Utah. Mice are a very common pest in the U.S but it’s not easy to deal with mice.

Once you identify an infestation, it can grow rapidly, as mice reproduce very quickly and live in groups. A female mouse can give birth to 10 litters per year. Their life span is between 9 months to one year. It can be very difficult to deal with mouse infestation on your own.

Types of Mice in Utah

The most common types of mice that are found in Utah are Deer Mice, White-Footed Mouse, Pack Rats, Eurasian Harvest Mice. While there are subtle differences in mice appearance and behavior, most people simply care about keeping mice problems in Utah away from their living space.

Why and How to Treat Mice

Mice can spread bacteria and disease in humans and pets, such as salmonella and hantavirus. They can even bite if they feel threatened, damage your home by chewing electrical wires and furniture, and they can also spoil your stored food. Here are a few popular remedies for getting rid of mice problems in Utah county:

1. Close Entry Points:

The best solution for reducing the ability for mice to get in the home is to eliminate all entry points. Seal all window gaps and space under the doors. Mice often move along the walls and avoid open spaces. In order to find their path, look for noise and mice droppings.

2. Use Mouse Traps.

Mouse traps are also a good solution for mice infestations. Several types of mouse traps are available. You can use bait traps, multiple-capture live traps, and glue traps in conjunction with wooden traps. This gives you a better chance of catching all of the mice.

3. Choose the Best Bait for Mouse Traps.

Consider using a mouse’s favorite food for baits. Their favorite foods include chocolate, peanut butter, bacon, oatmeal, dried fruit, or hazelnut spread. Replace food bait every two days. The trap location should also be in a somewhat sheltered area so that mice can feel safe. Always place mouse baits in sealed bait stations.

4. Get a Cat:

Adopting a cat is a natural way to get rid of mice. Cats love to track and hunt mice. Although cats are very helpful to keep mice away, they don’t have access to all the areas where mice can hide. This is why it is beneficial to use other mice eradication methods as well. 

5. Good Sanitation:

Mice are attracted to the smell of garbage. Keep all cans and garbage away from your home to help to get rid of mice.

6. Keep your Food Away from Mice:

Keep all your food stored out of the reach of mice so that they will have less incentive to stay in your home.

pest control companies vs do-it-yourself (DIY) pest control

Pest Control Companies Vs Do-It-Yourself

Not all pest problems require the same pest eradication techniques. The type of pests you are dealing with will determine the pest control methods that you use. If you are dealing with small infestations like the sighting of one spider, then do-it-yourself (DIY) pest control methods may apply. But infestation of termites, rodents, or bedbugs requires the help of a professional exterminator. So, what should you consider when choosing between pest control companies vs. do-it-yourself procedures?

Effectiveness

You want the crawlies out of your home, and you want them gone for good. DIY procedures work effectively but only for small infestations. If you are dealing with stubborn bugs, then the best way to completely get rid of them is to use commercial grade pesticides from a pest control company.

Exterminators have the knowledge and training on different species of pests. They are aware of bug species that are resistant to certain chemicals. They are up to date with current trends on fast and effective pest control methods.

Satisfaction Guarantee

For DIY methods, you are always gambling with the possibility of the chemicals getting rid of bugs. The return policies for the compound may not be clear, and you have to purchase new ones if the previous batch is ineffective.

Some pest control companies offer 100% guaranteed satisfaction on their services. Some also have the option of touch up services, at no extra cost, in case the pests return. Others even have a money back guarantee if the pests persist after several applications.  The guarantees build trust on the type of pest elimination processes they use.

Costs

It can be cheaper to purchase and personally apply pest control products from the store. With DIY pest control, there are no pest inspections and no identification charges — no extra costs of selection or application of the pesticides. But if you are dealing with stubborn bugs, then several purchases of different ineffective chemicals are expensive.

Pest control companies may be expensive initially. But their knowledge in the fast elimination of pests will prove cheaper in the long run.

Expertise

There are some obvious differences in expertise between pest control companies vs do-it-yourself pest control. It can be time-consuming to start learning about certain pests. Learning becomes even more difficult when you have to go through several web pages to extract any up-to-date information. You will be lucky if you gain the same type of information from one research, but sometimes, confusing data is what you will get.

On the other hand, the training and knowledge of most pest control companies are time-saving. They will investigate, diagnose, and give remedial solutions to your problems in a short time. They are constantly searching for changes in pest behavior to make their work easy and fast.

Convenience and Risks

DIY pest control methods seem convenient. You only need to visit the store, buy the pesticide, apply, and wait for a reaction on the pests. DIY pest control methods, however, come with risks. Handling of chemicals may lead to respiratory problems if inhaled. Getting the wrong mix of the chemical combination may also be a problem that can lead to non-elimination of pests and other health hazards.

However, using a pest control company for your pest elimination needs often ends up being more convenient and less risky than DIY pest control. You can easily set up reoccurring service visits and sign up for auto pay on your services so that there is little thought required to make sure that your home remains pest free.  Companies are also knowledgeable about how to apply the chemicals to reduce risks. They understand the risks of breathing commercial grade pesticides and will advise you on the best practices to avoid health problems.

Conclusion

There are advantages to both pest control companies vs do-it-yourself pest control. Your choice should, however, be determined by the type of pests in your home, as well as the conveniences you want to enjoy and the risks you want to avoid. Small infestations of easy-to-eliminate bugs can benefit from do-it-yourself processes. Stubborn bugs and large infestations will only benefit from the help of professional pest control companies. If you live along the Wasatch Front in Utah, Bamboo Servicing is your best bet for a professional pest control company that can take on virtually any pest problem. Contact Bamboo today at 385-429-2847.
