What Do Cockroaches Eat?

Cockroaches are among the pests that bother people the most. Although most cockroach infestations aren’t caused by poor housekeeping, these pests are associated with being creepy and dirty—and a closer look at their diet shows that their reputation may be well deserved and that you’re right to call your pest control company as soon as you spot roaches in your home.

Cockroaches will essentially eat anything. They have a preference for meat, sweet things, and starchy foods, but any organic food source will work. Cockroaches have been known to eat waste, human hair, and decaying matter. If you make finding food easy for cockroaches, they will want to stick around in your home indefinitely, so be sure to sweep up crumbs regularly and clean up food and drink spills as soon as they occur.

Keep cockroaches at bay with the help of the professional pest control team of Payne Pest Management. We offer both infestation services and preventative residential and commercial pest control in Orange County. Contact us today at (877) 365-5629.

Spotlight on Our Military Housing Services

Military housing needs special pest control attention. The proximity of people living closely together as well as the travel done by members of the military can leave this type of housing prone to pests. At Payne Pest Management, our Veteran-owned company is an approved service provider for the government and services military installations across Southern California, including Miramar Air Base and Camp Pendleton.

Our integrated pest management services include preventative treatments, exterminations, and ongoing customer support to ensure facilities have the lowest possible risk of future infestations. Our applications follow all federal, state, and local ordinances, and we work closely with our military clients to meet goals such as reduced pesticide usage.

Here's What Happens Inside a Hornet Colony

Hornets live in complex colonies in which each member plays a specific role that is essential for the group’s survival. Although having a hornet’s nest on your property is a good reason to call a pest control company, from a distance, a look inside their world is fascinating.

Watch this video to see what happens inside a hornet colony. The queen lays grubs, which share a co-dependent relationship with the workers. The workers can’t eat food, so they give the grubs chewed up food, which the grubs convert into a liquid protein for the benefit of the workers.

Don’t let potentially dangerous pests put your family at risk. Payne Pest Management can help with everything from bed bug treatment and termite pest control to hornet, wasp, and bee removal in Orange County. Talk to a pest control expert today by calling (877) 365-5629.

The Science of Bed Bug Bites

When bed bugs infest a home, unsuspecting, sleeping victims can get bitten hundreds of times in a single night. That is why calling a pest control company at the first sign of bed bugs is so important.

This video shows bed bugs in action, on the hunt for a host. They can come in through the tiniest spaces, and they know how to find you when you’re sleeping because they can detect the carbon dioxide you exhale. When they bite, bed bugs deliver an anesthetic, so you won’t know until you see the bite mark the next day.

Bed bugs are notoriously tough to exterminate, but Payne Pest Management can help with effective pest control services in Orange County. Schedule an appointment today by calling (877) 365-5629.

Identifying and Dealing with Stink Bugs

Stink bugs aren’t harmful to humans, but their unpleasant stench makes them unwelcome houseguests. Although they may leave people alone, they are extremely destructive to plants and agriculture, and can easily cause damage to a wide range of trees and crops. Stink bugs are able to spread unchecked because they have very few natural predators. If they enter your home, getting rid of them is a job for a professional pest control company. This information will help you determine if the pests in your home are stink bugs and what you can do about them.

Stink Bug Appearance

Most stink bugs in California are brown marmorated stink bugs. They have brown bodies with darks bands on their edges and the tips of their wings. Their legs are marbled brown and white, and they have white bands on their antennae. Their bodies are wider than their heads, and if you can get close enough, you can see bluish green depressions on their shoulders and heads. They are only about one-half to three-quarters of an inch in size, but they often travel in packs, making them easier to spot.

Stink bugs tend to hide in cracks and crevices, and inside the walls during cool weather. Homeowners usually see them during the springtime, when they emerge in the warmer weather. They only release their odor when they feel threatened, but when they do, the smell can linger for an extended period of time.

Stink Bug Extermination

Unless you want to deal with stink bug odors, don’t try to squish them. Because there are usually so many stink bugs involved in an infestation, the best strategy is to call your pest control company. If you see a stink bug outside of your home, it’s okay to step on it. The odor is a deterrent to other stink bugs who may be eyeing up your house for a place to spend the winter.

Let Payne Pest Management help you get rid of the odorous problem of stink bugs. Our home pest control team can keep your house free of insects and rodents. For more information about our pest control services in Orange County, call (877) 365-5629.
