3 Signs That You Have Cockroaches in Your Home


Few pests are as universally reviled as the common cockroach. Nocturnal, adaptable, and fast-breeding, cockroach populations are significant in most densely inhabited areas in the United States. There is no reason to believe this trend will change any time soon. If you want to be able to detect cockroaches almost as soon as they trespass onto your property, then familiarize yourself with the following signs of cockroach infestation:

1. “Coffee Grounds” on the Ground

If you find what appear to be coffee grounds on your floor, and they are nowhere near your coffee grinder, you may be mistaking the source of your morning energy with roach droppings. Droppings from small roaches may appear similar to black pepper or coffee grounds. You are most likely to find roach droppings behind your refrigerator or against walls in cooler parts of your home.

2. Unfamiliar or All-Too-Familiar Odor

If you have dealt with a cockroach infestation in the past, you may reach for the phone to call a pest control professional as soon as you detect that unforgettably unpleasant smell. If you have never had a problem with cockroaches, and you start to notice a pungent musty smell whenever you enter your home, a family of cockroaches may be to blame. Hire a professional fumigator to come out to your home and inspect it for cockroaches or other pests.

3. Daytime Sightings

For the most part, cockroaches do their roaming and feeding at night. If you spot roaches in your home during the daytime, this could be a sign that there is significant cockroach activity in your home. If you spot a deceased roach at any time, you should keep an eye out for other signs of cockroaches’ presence.

How to Treat a Wasp Sting

Unlike the common honeybee, many wasps have an aggressive manner. Knowing this, it is important to not make even the slightest move that could be perceived as threatening when in the presence of a wasp. If you do happen to be stung by a wasp, watch this educational video for advice on treating the sting.

After being attacked, removal of the stinger should be your top priority. This video offers tips for removing the stinger in a way that minimizes the release of additional venom. Also discussed in this clip is the proper method of washing the wound sustained during the sting. If swelling or redness is severe enough to warrant allergy concerns, seek medical attention immediately.

If the wasp that stung you is not the only one that has been living on your Orange Country property, you should hire a pest control professional to treat your yard and home. To speak with an experienced pest elimination expert in Orange County, call Payne Pest Management at (949) 450-9955. 

The Importance of Getting Regular Pest Inspections for Your Commercial Business

Payne Pest Management is your pest control solution.

Left untreated, pest infestations can wreak havoc on a property. If that property is your home, then you risk compromising your home’s hygiene level, sustaining property damage, and putting yourself and others in your household at risk for contracting numerous illnesses. If that property is your business, you, your employees, and your customers face the same risks. Also at stake, however, are the success of your business and your company’s reputation. To better understand the importance of adopting an integrated pest management approach with frequent pest inspections of your commercial property, read on.

Keep Your Facilities Clean

Being free of pests is the mark of a clean and healthy structure. All pests leave excrement behind, which can expose employees or customers to a variety of viruses. Pests also spread bacteria, making it difficult for business owners to maintain a hygienic work atmosphere whenever they are present.

Keep Your Reputation Intact

The impact a pest problem can have on a business depends largely on what type of industry that company belongs to. It also depends on the size of the infestation and the nature of the response taken by the business owner or property manager. A property that is regularly treated for pests is less likely to experience a pest infestation and the accompanying bad press.

Benefit from Your Proactivity

Prevention is vital to keeping termites, cockroaches, rodents, and other pests away from your commercial business facilities. Arrange to have a team of pest control professionals inspect and treat your workplace regularly, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your business space is protected with preventative treatments.

Detect Pests Immediately

Some pest control professionals offer continuous monitoring as part of their integrated pest management programs. With monitor-driven traps and regular inspections, you can detect the presence of pests as soon as they enter your property. Your professional fumigator can treat your property immediately, keeping property damage and health hazards to a minimum.

Are you an Orange County business owner who is looking for a reliable pest control professional to inspect and treat your property for termites, bed bugs, and other unwanted pests on a regular basis? If so, Payne Pest Management is here for you. To learn more about our commercial pest management solutions, call (949) 450-9955.

What to Do When You Find Bees in Your Yard

Beehive Bee Swarm

Perhaps it is the bizarre way in which they buzz around. Perhaps it is their unique appearance. Perhaps it is the knowledge that bee allergies are among the most common allergies in the United States. Whatever the cause may be, the effect is clear: Bees incite a terrified reaction from many people who come into contact with them. If you discover an infestation of these flying, stinging pests in your yard, take the following steps:

Remain Calm

Panicking in front of a colony of bees is a recipe for disaster. Although it can be difficult to control your natural response, do your best to stay calm and still when you first encounter bees on your property.

Quietly Retreat

Once you have recovered from any initial shock that came with your bee discovery, do your best to quietly walk away from the site of infestation. Make note of where the bees are so that you can tell the pest control professional you hire to remove them from your property.

Find Shelter

As you back away from the bees, find a sheltered area where you will be out of their reach. This should be inside a building or car.

Call a Professional

Do not try to exterminate or remove bees from your property yourself; bee removal is a dangerous task that requires special attire, equipment, and training. Instead, call a pest control professional who offers bee elimination services in your area. Do this as soon as possible.

Notify Others

Once you have arranged to have a professional attend to your pest infestation, notify other members of your household and anyone else who is likely to come in contact with the bees. Let them know where the bees are located and when a pest control professional is scheduled to come to the rescue.

Watch This Video To Learn About Different Termite Treatment Options

When you meet with a pest control professional about the termite problem on your property, you will discover that you have a number of treatment options. Most methods of termite control fall under two categories: spot treatment and whole house fumigation.

This video sheds some light on the advantages provided by whole house fumigation, especially in cases of drywood termite infestation. Using a reliable treatment formula such as Dow AgroSciences’ Vikane, a pest control professional can achieve better results than he or she could with any spot treatment method.

If you are an Orange County resident who desires the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the termite fumigation treatment carried out on your property will eliminate 100% of the termite population present, call Payne Pest Management today at (949) 450-9955.
