Get to Know the Most Venomous Spider in America

Black widows are notorious for their venomous bite, and they can be found throughout Southern California. This brief video clip provides a brief glimpse into the mating habits of black widows.

Black widow females are identifiable due to their large size and signature red hourglass mark, and they can lay up to 1,000 eggs after each mating session. There are few serious cases of black widow bites every year, but can be fatal to small children and the infirm.

Termite Prevention 101

North American Home

Termites are tiny pests that can cause major damage to homes and other wooden structures. While hiring a professional termite control service is the easiest way to prevent these pests from invading your home, there are several steps you can take to maintain the safety of your space

Keep Firewood Away from Your Home
Do you keep firewood near your home? This can increase your risk for a termite infestation. Termites may use this wood as both a feeding source and an easy way to climb near and gain access to your home. That is why you should keep firewood at least 10 feet away from the house.

Maintain Distance Between Plants and Your Home’s Foundation
Plants and mulch near your home can provide the perfect hiding spots for termites and may make it difficult for you to detect an infestation. In fact, moist mulch may even attract termites to your house. When designing your landscaping, be sure to leave plenty of room for plants to grow so they do not come near the side of the house.

Inspect Your Home Regularly
You should regularly inspect both the interior and exterior of your home for termites in order to catch any infestations during early phases. Examine the molding around your home for signs of damage. Use a tool to gently tap on wood to listen for hollow spots. During your inspection, move furniture or boxes that might cover up termite activity. Outside, check your foundation for cracks and termite tubes. Carefully inspect porch columns, decks, supports, and siding. If you notice any signs of termite activity inside or outside your home, call a professional immediately.

The best way to prevent a termite infestation is to have your home regularly inspected and treated by a professional pest control service. These experts can ensure that your home is free of termites and can prevent future outbreaks.

What Are Silverfish?

Silverfish Bristletail

One of the most common pests that you're likely to spot lingering around your Orange County home is the Silverfish, which is a grayish insect that can grow to be up to one inch in length. Silverfish acquired their name from both their color as well as the fish-like motion with which they travel from place to place. Unlike other types of common household bugs like termites or bed bugs whose lifespan is relatively short, the Silverfish can live to be eight years old.

The rapid rate at which Silverfish moult make them one of the more frustrating pests to deal with in the home. Silverfish are also seen as a troublesome insect thanks to their consumption of common household substances like cotton, paints, paper, sugar, hair, and clothing. If you're dealing with an infestation of these pesky critters, then be sure to speak with your Orange County pest control specialists here at Payne Pest Management. To learn more about our eradication services for Silverfish and other unwanted house guests, call (949) 450-9955.

How to Identify Different Bug Bites

Mosquito on Hand

If you plan on spending a considerable amount of time outdoors this summer, then you may want to take a moment to familiarize yourself with local bugs and their not-so-pleasant bites. Correctly identifying a bug bite is the first step to take before adequately treating the itch and inflammation that the bite causes. Here is a guide to identifying an insect bite or sting:

Mosquito Bites
One of the most common—and frustrating—bites that you can experience around Orange County is that of a mosquito. Mosquito bites appear initially as white bumps before taking on a reddish-brown hue. They often swell and are incredibly itchy, although relatively harmless to your overall health. If you notice that a mosquito bite is followed by a fever or swollen lymph nodes, then visit a doctor immediately.

Black Widow Bites
Of all spider bites, the Black Widow's tends to be the most feared because of the pain that it can cause for a victim. To determine whether or not it was a Black Widow that bit you, look for two fang-like impressions around the affected area. The bite will typically be accompanied by severe muscle cramps, vomiting or nausea, and even seizures. Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect you've been bitten by a Black Widow.

Bed Bug Bite
Bed bug bites resemble tiny, red dots that are often found in clusters around the body. If these bites become infected or you experience an allergic reaction to the chemical that bed bugs inject into your skin when they bite, then the spots may become filled with puss and start to itch. Whatever you do, do not scratch them as it will only spread the infection. Instead, schedule an emergency visit to your doctor.

If you and your family have had enough of bothersome bites and stings, then contact the pest control experts here at Payne Pest Management. From bed bug fumigation to tick and spider elimination, our services safely and effectively target insects in order to make stings and bites a thing of the past. To learn more about how our pest control company can improve the environment around your home, call (949) 450-9955.
