Spotlight on Zoonotic Diseases

Pest Control Orange County

Not all residential pest control problems look alike. While ants, termites, and cockroaches may come to mind when you think of pests, rodents and birds can also be dangerous nuisances. Read on as we put the spotlight on zoonotic diseases.

Some zoonotic diseases are relatively well known, such as Lyme disease, salmonella, and rabies. These diseases are typically spread through ticks and wild animals. Others, such as cryptococcosis and lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM) are slightly less recognizable but still just as important. Cryptococcosis is a fungus that people might inhale in the presence of bird droppings, making it crucial that you handle bird infestations promptly and with the help of a pest control professional. If you have a rodent problem in your home, you might be at risk for LCM. This infection might cause symptoms that resemble those of the flu, and it can eventually lead to more serious conditions.

If you would like to learn more about zoonotic diseases and how to reduce your risk of contracting them, contact Payne Pest Management. Our pest control company offers a multitude of services including bed bug control and termite fumigations. Feel free to visit our website or call us at (877) 365-5629 to learn more about us.

Answers to Your Questions About Termite Fumigation

Termites San Diego

Termites can tear through your lumber, eat away at your wooden deck, and even affect the structural integrity of your home. Fortunately termite control companies are prepared to fumigate the area and rid you of your termite problem. Here are the answers to some of your questions about termite fumigation.

How Should I Prepare for Fumigation?
Due to the potentially dangerous nature of termite fumigations, it is important to understand what you must remove from the home before the process can begin. Before termite fumigation, you will have to find a place for any pets and plants that typically stay in the home. Unless they are sealed in glass or metal containers, food and medicine should be removed from the home as well. Let your fumigation and pest control service know about any drains or systems that might allow fumigants to spread from your home.

Do I Have to Leave My House?
It is absolutely imperative that you leave your house during termite fumigation. Your pest control company will be using lethal gases in the extermination of termites from your home, and these gases are lethal to humans as well as bugs. The amount of time you will remain away from your house depends on a few different factors including the size of your home and the intensity of the infestation. Your professional fumigation service will let you know when it is safe to enter your home again.

What Types of Fumigants Are Used?
Many homeowners prefer to know exactly what kinds of fumigants are used within their homes, and this is a reasonable request. Your pest control company should inform you of the names of the fumigants used as well as the ingredients that they contain. The fumigant will also be listed on your re-entry notice.

If you still have questions about termite fumigation, feel free to call Payne Pest Management at (877) 365-5629.

How to Identify Cockroaches

When you experience the initial surprise of seeing something moving around in your cabinet, you might not be thinking about exactly what it is. It helps to be able to identify the invader, however, in order to seek immediate pest control services. Continue reading for a few tips on how to identify cockroaches.

In addition to being able to differentiate cockroaches from other pests, it is also helpful to recognize different types of roaches. You can identify cockroaches by their colors, sizes, and habits. Oriental cockroaches are shiny and black, while American roaches are brown with a pattern that resembles a figure-8. Most cockroaches tend to range from half an inch to two inches in size, with brownbanded roaches typically staying towards the lower end of the spectrum. A warm and humid environment is home for German cockroaches, but American roaches prefer larger, more open spaces. All cockroaches search for food and water when invading a home.

Preventing Bed Bugs When You Travel

You might bring plenty of souvenirs home from your vacation, but a pest control problem should not be one of them. Watch this video for tips on preventing bed bugs when you travel.

Bed bugs might be found in hotels, on buses, and even in your suitcase. Consider lining your bags with special bed bug liners to ensure that these pests do not find their way into your belongings. Carefully inspect your pillows, mattress, blankets, and everything surrounding your sleeping area. Avoid putting your suitcase on your bed or directly on the floor; instead, put your bags on a table or a rack to make them less accessible to bed bugs.
