Synergy Jackson Pest Control Answers Your Questions: September 17, 2021

Do silverfish bite?

Silverfish may look strange and scary, but silverfish pose no harm to humans and do not bite.  Silverfish feed on products containing polysaccharides such as dextrin and starches in adhesives.  Common targets for feeding include books, paper, plaster, bindings, glue, and paint.

Getting rid of silverfish is not that hard and does not take a lot of chemicals.  First remove all items from your home that attract silverfish.  Next correct areas of moisture in the home.  Silverfish love damp areas.  After that, a professional pest company can treat the interior of your home with insecticides to get rid of the remaining silverfish.

How to keep spiders away?

Common spiders around our home include: American house spider, long-bodied cellar spider, brown recluse spider, black widow spider, jumping spider, wolf spider, and garden spiders.  All of these spiders are beneficial outside the home controlling unwanted pests, especially flying insects.  It’s when spiders come inside of our home that they become a problem.

To control spiders and reduce the number of spiders coming indoors, there are several steps you can take.  First is to use a pole with dust head to remove spider webs as they form under eaves and porches.  Next, applications of insecticides, especially dust formulations can help provide longer control of spiders.  After that, treating the interior of your home with insecticide applications around baseboards and under sinks can help manage spiders that do make it inside.

How to get rid of fleas in your house?

Flea problem are especially prevalent in homes with pets, especially dogs and cats.  Fleas live outdoors and the most common way they are brought into a home is on pets.  Once inside, fleas can rapidly reproduce infesting carpets, bedding and furniture.

To get rid of fleas quickly and for good, several steps must be taken at the same time.  Schedule a pest treatment with a company specializing in flea extermination to treat both your lawn and your home.  On the same day, arrange a visit to your pet’s veterinarian for your pet to be treated for fleas.  After the flea treatment, vacuum your home and furniture frequently to remove fleas and flea eggs.  Often a second flea treatment of your home is necessary to take care of hatching flea eggs.

What does a baby German cockroach look like?

Baby cockroaches in your home may be a sign of a serious roach infestation.  Baby German cockroaches in your home mean immediate action is needed.  German cockroaches prefer to live indoors and are prolific breeders.  Killing the adult roaches will not stop the infestation.  For German cockroaches, stopping the breeding process is key.  A single female cockroach can produce up to 300 eggs in her lifetime.

Baby German cockroaches, also called nymphs, are tiny at about 2cm long.  The nymphs begin life white in color and then molt to a light brown color, similar to adult German cockroaches.  

What is the bed bug treatment cost?

Why are proper bed bug treatment costs so high?  Bed bugs are among the toughest to treat household pests.  Simply spraying insecticide may kill the bed bugs you can see but don’t treat the majority of bed bugs that are hiding.  Bed bugs hide in mattresses, mattress seams, furniture, carpet, drapes, and behind outlets.

Getting rid of bed bugs for good requires a lot of preparation.  Once prepped, bed bug treatments can take hours to complete.  In addition to liquid insecticides, dusts, bio-pesticides, and heat may be used to get rid of bed bugs in the home.  Bed bug treatment costs can range from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars depending on the size of your home and the severity of the bed bug infestation.
