At S.C.A.T! Pest Control, cockroaches are not the only bugs that we deal with here at Lloydminster. Here are some of the bugs we typically deal with on a day-to-day basis, and some you may encounter in your home. They include:
The most common cockroach you might encounter is the German cockroach. Some other types of cockroaches that have been identified in the Lower Mainland include American and Oriental cockroaches, which are all similar in size.
There are several risks associated with cockroaches, which can carry numerous types of diseases. Some of the more common diseases associated with cockroaches include salmonella (food poisoning), cholera, plague and polio. It’s important to stay vigilant and keep your spaces clean.
If you manage or own a restaurant, retail food establishment, food distribution warehouse or food processing plant, you could be shut down by health officials. Having to dispose of your inventory because of cockroach infestation can be a cringe-worthy experience. Not only could you lose hundreds of thousands of dollars, but you could also face serious legal consequences if someone falls ill. It could ruin your brand as well. That’s why you should call us at S.C.A.T! Pest Control in Lloydminster.
Bumble bees, hornets and wasps have the ability to sting multiple times, and will alert other members of the colony to attack if they’re threatened in any way. Many people and animals are highly sensitive to stings, and in some cases, they can be life threatening. Don’t take any risks. Call us today so we can safely remove these insects.
Silverfish are a nocturnal insect, primarily found in washrooms, kitchens and humid spaces. While silverfish do not cause structural damage, they typically feed on products with starch. What’s more the bugs will eat books, bindings and paper products. You may even find them under furniture or carpets.
If you have noticed a silverfish infestation in your home or apartment, we can help! Typically we do a crack and crevice treatment to the baseboards, pipe openings and any other areas. To better treat your home, we ask that you follow our preparations, which are provided at the time of booking.
Pavement ants are a doozy! They can transmit diseases and they also have the ability to transmit tapeworm. In extreme cases, they can cause anemia. Fleas have caused tenants to move out, staff to refuse to work in a specific location and homeowners to scratch themselves crazy. Give us a call and we’ll take care of all your problems.
Carpenter ants are very common in areas where there is an abundance of damp or decaying wood, including old or dead trees and stored firewood. They also occupy stumps, fence posts, structural posts or beams, decks, window sills, hot tubs and soffits. They borough into wood to create tunnels, or “galleries”, which would be a part of the ant colony’s nest(s). If left long enough, these ants will cause severe damage and pose a structural risk to any building they are in.
