Synergy Jackson Pest Control FAQ’s: September 24, 2021

I think I was bitten by a brown recluse spider. Long-term effects of a brown recluse spider bite?

While bites from poisonous spiders like Black Widows and Brown recluse are rare, they can be very serious when they occur. Brown Recluse spider bites are among the most serious and medical attention may be required. Brown Recluse spiders are often identified by the violin-shaped pattern on their backs.

The venom of a Brown Recluse is known as being more potent than that of a rattlesnake. The venom from a Brown Recluse is toxic to tissue and cells. Early symptoms include muscle cramps, weakness, and tremors. More serious issues from Brown Recluse spider bites include chest pain, vomiting and respiratory complications.

What does squirrel poop look like?

A common sign of wildlife living in your home is poop or droppings. Squirrel poop can look similar to droppings from other animals. Identifying the type of animal you are dealing with is the key to successfully removing them.

Squirrel poop looks very similar to rat poop. Both are smooth and dark brown in color. Squirrel poop though is bigger and barrel shaped. In addition to their poop, other signs of squirrels in your home include scratch marks, footprints, and gnaw marks.

Where do fruit flies come from?

Fruit flies are a type of gnat that are common indoor pests, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. Fruit flies like to live and breed in organic matter, including organic matter in drains, and rotting fruit and vegetables in garbage. Fruit flies are much more prevalent during the warmer summer months.

Getting rid of fruit flies quickly and for good involves several steps, with the first step being most important. To get rid of fruit flies and keep them from returning, all organic matter, rotting fruit, vegetables, and garbage must be removed. After that, organic drain foams can help keep drains free of organic matter. For remaining fruit flies, insecticide sprays, insect growth regulators, and fruit fly traps can be used.

Best poison to kill rats instantly?

Professional-use rat poisons are highly effective at getting rid of rats in your home. Rat poisons are also extremely dangerous and can cause unintentional poisoning on humans, pets, and non-target animals. If all other options have failed to get rid of rats, professional pest companies specializing in rat extermination and the safe use of rat poison may be the best option.

Before resorting to dangerous rat poisons, homeowners can try rat traps which can be quite effective. The most common rat traps include rat snap traps, glue boards, and rat live traps. Baiting these traps with a food or item rats prefer is essential to effectively getting rid of rats.

What do fleas look like?

At only 3mm in length, fleas are tiny but visible to the human eye. Fleas are often shades of brown in color and are known for their ability to jump. Flea eggs are oval and white to off-white in color.

Often before you notice fleas, a homeowner may recognize signs of fleas. Signs of fleas include: flea dirt, flea bites on pets and humans, constant scratching or licking by pets on a specific area of the body. To get rid of fleas quickly, flea treatments of your pets should be completed at the same time as flea treatment of your home and lawn.

What to do about baby roaches?

Seeing small roaches in your home can be a sign of a serious roach infestation. Roaches breed quickly so immediate attention may be required before the roach infestation grows out of control. The critical first step is to identify the type of roach and whether the roaches are babies or just small species of roaches like German cockroaches.

If the cockroaches are identified as cockroach nymphs, or juvenile cockroaches, calling in a pest professional that specializes in cockroach extermination may be necessary. Prior to the cockroach extermination service, sanitation measures are key to making sure the treatment is as successful as possible. Remove garbage, clutter, and food sources that are attracting cockroaches. Also, identify possible points of entry into your home and make the appropriate repairs.
