TERMITE FACTS & SIGNS:

 Unfortunately, TERMITES will not stop, unless you stop them. Termites are designed for destruction and cause nearly $5 billion in damage to U.S. properties very year. If you can spot termite signs early and start treatment before the damage is detrimental and expensive repairs can be avoided.

FACTS ABOUT TERMITES:

  • Live in colonies of several thousand to several million foragers
  •  Have been known to destroy lead, asphalt, plaster or even mortar when in search of wood
  • Are found in every U.S. state except Alaska 
  •  Infest over four-million U.S. homes each year
  • Cause damage in hidden areas, behind walls, in crawl spaces and basements
  •  Can go unnoticed for years while continuing to damage your property
  • Create costly destruction that most insurance policies DO NOT cover

What type of treatment will we perform?

TERMITE MONITORING BAIT SYSTEM:

Our Termite Control services include installing termite monitoring stations around the perimeter of a property. Upon finding termites in the stations, a bait cartridge is installed, which attracts the termites to feed and kills the colony. The monitoring stations are inspected regularly (typically every 3 months unless needed sooner). Depending on your situation, it may also involve drilling into your porch, garage, brick siding and other slab in and around your property.

 

Termidor Application:

Termidor is a professionally applied termite defense product that is undetectable to termites. Since its introduction, over 4 million homes have been protected with Termidor and is used as a quality termite defense product. This product is applied to soil, direct wood, or in wall voids along the foundation of your home to create a continuous treatment zone.   

SIGNS OF TERMITES:

Usually the first sign of a termite infestation is the presence of flying termites — called swarmers. These swarmers start to appear as the weather becomes warmer. Subterranean termites swarm during the spring season. In the event you see discarded wings or a swarm of insects then this is the time contact a termite professional and schedule an inspection.

 A common mistake people make is confusing termites with white ants. This misconception is an easy one to make as ants and termites are very similar in both shape, size and in some cases behavior. There are some differences in their appearance that our trained pest professionals can point out to accurately identify what pest is pestering you.

Termites also make tunnels in wood known as "gallories" or build subterranean tunnels known as "mud tubes"  where they store and transport their food.

Both termite species create blow holes in trees, but the most visible is the subterranean species, which form their colonies inside tree trunks. In wood an audible hollow sound maybe heard if termites have infested.

If you see any of these signs it is best to contact a termite pest professional right away. Ampulex Pest Control offers affordable quality termite abatement.

How to Avoid bringing Bedbugs home when Traveling! Tired of Bedbugs Hitchhiking a ride to your home?!?!

Bedbug Infestations can occur anywhere and anytime, but the risk becomes higher during peak travel times. One thing we've found about bedbugs is they do not discriminate when traveling. From first class to coach or 5 star hotels to a little motel they can be found hiding and waiting to come home with you. This is why we'd like to share some tips on avoiding bringing these little hitchhikers home when traveling.

First when entering your hotel room keep your luggage off the floor or bed. It's best to place luggage in the bathtub or on top of a table and then inspect the room. It's a good idea to do a quick scan of the headboard and inspect seams of the mattress under the sheets. If you see any dark stains on the mattress, light brown shells, or pearly white eggs notify the staff right away. Bed bugs often can be found at the baseboards under the head of the bed. If you do find a questionable bug save it in a baggie or container until it can be properly identified.

It is important to know what bed bugs look like. You can see many images of bedbugs, shells, and skin casings on our website www.AmpulexPestControl.com. Adult bedbugs are reddish-brown and about a quarter-inch in length. Adolescent bedbugs are smaller and often have a lighter brown color. One of the most important step when dealing with bed bugs is reducing clutter. Bedbugs love to hide, so clutter just makes that easy for them to do so. Bed bugs also hate high heat, so when returning home from a trip it is best to launder all clothing and linens in hot water and dry on highest heat for at least 30 minutes. If it's a hot summer day you can leave luggage in the car for a few days in case any tried to hitchhike a ride home with you.

Even when taking these precautions unfortunately sometimes bed bugs still make it home with you. Don't panic! You don't want to deal with bed bugs without a professional. Ampulex offers affordable bed bug control with a minimum 90 day warranty. Check our reviews to hear from our customers. Call (513)550-5352 for fast and free quote!

Signs of Termites on your property...

Things to keep an eye out for in your home or business are termite tubes, swarm capsules, winged swarming insects (often mistaken for ants), or any wood damage. Since termites eat the wood from the inside out it's often difficult to notice wood damage until it is too late! Call with any of these signs or unidentified winged insects. Ampulex will promptly respond and provide a free and honest inspection. If we do find activity we will never pressure you to purchase anything you are not comfortable with and offer fair prices for all of our services.

Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

This is a severe bed bug infestation that Ampulex has taken care of. This is what you do NOT want to see in your home. This is a severe infestation, so a new infestation or confirming a less extreme bed bug infestation can not be so easily identified and often requires a professional. If you see any of these signs or questionable activity call us to schedule a free inspection to make sure if there is activity it doesn't become this severe.

Below you can see a live bug activity and collections of casts skins that are shed in the bed frame. As baby bed bugs (nymphs) move toward adulthood they shed their skin a total of 5 times. Cast skins look like lighter colored empty bed bug shells:

Below you can see the white eggs from female bed bugs. Bed bugs can live up to 18 months and females can lay 200-500 eggs over the course of her lifetime. you can see more live bed bugs and the black stains on the mattress. These black stains are bed bug fecal blood. This is the #1 sign you have bed bugs. When bed bugs take a blood meal they defecate almost immediately leaving a dark stain. These stains can be found of sheets, mattresses, or also around harborages where bed bugs are hiding when they are not too busy feeding. Notice how dark the mattress is in comparison to all the white eggs. Now that is some well fed bed bugs! Both male and female bed bugs must feed at least every 14 days in order to reproduce. Don't let these uninvited guests eat for free in your home!

The Truth About Cockroaches

German Cockroaches are one of the few insects that are oviparous. That basically means that they carry this eggsac (ootheca) right up until the time of birth. Hard to believe, but up to 48 baby roaches can come out of one of these. They can get out of hand pretty quickly, because they're so prolific. They're also one of the more difficult insects to treat due to a potential pesticide resistance. However, no matter the severity of cockroach infestation, our Ampulex Pest Control Professionals can help. This article attached in the link is an interesting read on the reality of cockroaches and the potential health hazards these infestations can cause.
