Look in the sky – it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s …. a cockroach??!!

 

A recently (1980s) discovered insect to the southeastern US in the Asian Cockroach (blattella asahinai).  It is similar to many other roaches, especially the German Cockroach, however the Asian cockroach can fly!  For all practical puposes, the Asian cockroach is identical in appearance to the German cockroach…unless you get out a microscope!
roaches_tampa

Unlike the German Roach, the primary habitat of the Asian cockroach is outdoors.  They can be found in shaded mulched or composted areas, such as landscaping and gardens.  They feed on plant matter, seeds and flowers.  They are abundant outdoors, where populations of 30,000 to 250,000 per acre have been reported per University of Florida data.  The adult population is most plentiful during our spring months, February through May.

An average female can live up to 103 days, producing about 80 offspring in her lifetime.  Wow – That’s a lot of bugs!  Needless to say, when you see one of these type of roaches you can usually find more, not that you want to look for them!
roach infestation tampa fl

The Asian cockroach species are strong fliers, and can travel good distances.  They are most active around dusk, usually when we are out enjoying our Florida spring weather!  They are attracted to light-colored and/or brightly lit surfaces, where they often settle.  They can invade your home by flying through doors & windows.  Once inside they are known to crawl on illuminated television screens, lamp shades and walls in the evening when lights are on.  Due to their attraction to light, they are more evident than some other cockroaches which live in cracks & crevices.  In the event that the Asian cockroach gains access into your home, the eradication protocol must be aggressive (same as the German roach) due to their fast reproduction.

There are products that help eliminate the Asian Cockroach from your home, however due to their flying ability application of products may need to repeated, as well as using granular baits scattered on the outdoor areas of your property.  In some cases, certain properties will need larger amounts of product at more frequent intervals depending on the surroundings. In order to reduce their access into your home, University of Florida suggests using yellow incandescent bulbs for porch lighting as it is less attractive to adults and would thereby reduce these insects flying near your house.  Having screens on your doors & windows are also a big help to discourage them from moving in with you!

In the event you have heard or seen these roaches flying by you, feel free to call Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. for help.  Our technicians will identify their habitat and give you a recommended treatment plan.

Water Issues for Tampa Lawns


This is the time of year where we really notice the beautiful turf and landscapes in our Tampa Bay Area. Unfortunately due to the prolonged drought conditions that plaque us, we are not always pleased with what we see! As the Office Manager, I get feedback from the lawn supervisor and find that about 90% of our service calls for our customer’s lawns are a result of lack of water. This opens the door to countless other stressful conditions that develop in one’s lawn. Although we water our lawns as regularly as we can, often times the sprinkler system may not be giving adequate coverage, the wind may carry the water away from areas needed, or the system just has a “hot spot”, or the times per zone are not enough, along with those developing areas needing better water coverage. Being in the office it is very difficult to make this determination, however we try to suggest that if it hasn’t rained for long periods of time it is best to hand water the problem areas for 20 – 30 minutes to see if it helps, doing this during the hottest part of the day for quickest results. Usually that solves the problem as the grass is instantly cooled down & rehydrates itself, and our customer then understands how to spot the heat stress of their lawn in the future. However if it doesn’t help the problem, our lawn division supervisor will be out to access the situation and give additional recommendations and/or treatments. Our company has over 100 years of combined experience and uses their expertise to give you the best mixtures of fertilizer, insecticides and herbicides. These seasonal mixes give optimum chinch bug and mole cricket and grub control and helps keep your lawn going forward. In addition to the regular services, there are specialty services such as fire ant control, and shrub & palm & tree fertilization. Our owner or lawn division supervisor can give you a quote for any of these specialty services offered. When all recommendations are followed correctly, our products will keep your lawn lush and green providing that you are doing the main part by providing adequate water… because there are too often long periods of time that Mother Nature isn’t giving us much help!

Addressing winter lawn problems in Tampa, FL

A Common Question and Answer from a REAL Customer

Tom & Jeri,

I wanted to touch base with you regarding your concerns of your turf in addition to the notes left you by our lawn supervisor.  Jerry was out yesterday to review your lawn which he has shared pictures & discussed with me.

As you know, it is winter season and the grass is dormant which also slows the growth.  The color of the blades is minimal due to the slow growth at this time of year.  Every time the turf is cut at this time of year, the color is eliminated which makes it also look dull and even further adds to the “winter-like” look (that doesn’t grow out quickly).  Please understand that all the color of the grass is in the leaf tissue and therefore having it cut on a regimented schedule (ie: bi-weekly) during this season while it keeps it nice & tight looking, the grass isn’t growing much which also adds to the matted down and duller look.

Reviewing your lawn’s recent history and understanding that it has had some minor stress going in to this dormant season,  I see  we quickly addressed it by applying a free dry fertilizer and a blanket fungicide treatment to your lawn to aid in re-directing the continued forward progress of your turf grass.

Currently, I recommend that you do not cut the lawn for about 4 – 5 weeks, so that we can try to get the look you desire.  The lawn maintenance company should be able to trim and edge only, which will keep the property looking neat while allowing the grass to grow and color.  This extra growth will also help it against frost damage.  Next October 28th to February 28th season, please consider only having the mower on your turf only 3 - 5 times during that period.   We have many customers utilizing this approach and find it very successful in delivering them a better looking lawn and feel you would also begin to see the benefits of this method.

In the months of March & April which is when we apply heavy fertilization treatments, I also recommend that you continue to only mow every two weeks.  The trim (around house & sprinkler heads) & edge (sidewalks & driveways) can be done weekly if desired.  This approach will also allow the grass to become thicker and lusher, which we both desire!  Please know from my prior 25 plus years of experience, this may cause the mower company to complain and slow down their cutting process due to the thickness of the grass, so advise them to have freshly sharpened blades!  Please be assured that in March when the weather is more “spring-like” with proper watering, your lawn will begin to thrive!

David

Winter time lawn fungus problems in Tampa, FL

It’s the winter season!

The office receives many calls at this time of year, with people asking why their lawn isn’t looking as good as usual.  We then have to remind them that Florida gets a winter season also!  Many of our grasses and plants actually go into a dormant mode during these winter months.  So although visiting northern folks are still sunbathing on the beach, the growing season is slowing.

The most common turf used locally is St. Augustine (Stenotaphrum secundatum) grass.  It is a coarse textured grass that spreads by stolons or shoots, which can grow to be several feet long with roots along the way.

This grass goes dormant when the soil temperatures fall below 55 degrees.  Soil temperatures typically mirror the Gulf water temperatures.  As the soil drops in temperature, the growth will slow considerably.  Cold weather and a light frost will show visible signs of damage on the grass.  During these temperature conditions brown patch fungus can quickly develop in any St. Augustine or Zoysia grass lawn.  St. Augustine grass develops a brown, yellow or even purple hue in the damaged area.  These areas will usually recover once the weather is more consistent of the Florida warmth.  However during this time of year with the cooler temperatures, it is important to note that the grass cannot naturally repair itself from moderate foot traffic or children playing on the turf.

It is noted by professionals in the industry that although the cool weather slows the growth, it is still important to perform turf fertility and pest management throughout the winter season.  Keeping the scheduled programs will aid in quicker recovery of your turf in the spring time,  and help with needed nutrients to keep the grass healthy.

Once the fear of frost is over and our sunny warm temperatures return to the Tampa Bay Area, the Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. lawns will once again quickly take on that look  of green and lush!

For more information about our company, please visit our website: www.NelsonsPestControl.com. or simply contact our office at: 813-994-1166  or  727-372-1175.  We offer free lawn analysis and service quotes!

HOW TO FIND THE BEST TAMPA RAT EXTERMINATOR

Uninvited guests!

Our usual warm, sunny Florida is getting its small dose of winter, which means we may get some uninvited guests moving into our homes!  There is nothing worse than trying to sleep and hearing something scurrying about in the attic.  By morning the noises are often forgotten, but a call to our office is in your best interest.

Impending Damages! 

The furry little friends that move into your attic can often do a lot of damage throughout your home.  Mice and rats are well adapted to living with people and get comfortable quickly.   They often structural damage including chewing through air conditioning duct work, pvc water pipes, and electrical wires.  The attic insulation is often used as nesting material for their families.  These damages can become very costly if left unattended.  It can also pose serious health issues if rodents begin entering and nesting in your air conditioning duct work, resulting in urine & feces constantly being blown into the fresh air ducts.

Easy Access!

Rodents have poor vision but have great sense of smell, taste and hearing.  They use these senses to locate food.  They are agile and able to squeeze through places as small as half inch in diameter.  They often access homes through or around dryer vents, water or gas pipes, and sewers.  Rodents often chew holes through wooden or vinyl soffits, windows or doors.  They run quickly, climb easily, and swim well.  Unfortunately, they leave droppings, urine and hairs behind wherever they wander.

It is not recommended that you try to do rodent exclusion on your own, as there are usually some unfavorable results.  Our office sometimes receives calls stating that a homeowner had put poison out to rid their home of the rats.  Often that rat eats the poison and then crawls into a wall void to die.  Even on our colder days, the odor of a decaying rodent is not a nice thing to smell.  If you are experiencing this type of odor in your home, feel free to contact us for a dead animal removal service.

Inspection needed!

In the event you think someone has moved into your home without an invitation, please call Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. to schedule an inspection.  Our owner, David Nelson will come and do a thorough inspection of your property to locate all the rodent access points, and then give a recommendation of exclusion and trapping.   Our pricing includes return visits to remove anything caught in our traps and re-baiting, until we are certain that the unwanted guests are gone from your home!

Palmetto bugs, water bugs, roaches, stink bugs, wood roach… whatever term you want to call them most people don’t want them sharing their homes!  When our office gets a call from a customer using one of these names, they are most often referring to the American Cockroach (Periplaneta Americana).

 Recognizing the American cockroach in Tampa, Florida

An adult American Cockroach is easy to identify due to its size.  They are usually 1.5 – 2 inches long and are a reddish brown color.  If a potential customer calls in the office stating they see a big bug I often ask if it’s big enough to put a saddle on it!  If they say yes, I know we’re talking about an American roach!   Another challenging and frustrating factor is that when trying to “get ‘em” this insect has the ability to fly away.

Adding to a homeowner’s frustration is the fact that a female American Cockroach lays about 16 eggs on average, which are kept in a protective capsule and deposited in a warm, humid area.  Once the egg hatches, it is a grayish brown color but develops into an adult in about 5 months becoming more reddish brown in color and growing wings.

Moving into your Tampa home

American Roaches normally live outdoors. They are found in damp areas such as under landscaping or mulch, and inside tops of palm trees (hence the term “palmetto bug”).  Often these insects will harbor in items left around the house such as stacked firewood, leaf litter, canoes, boats, and garbage cans.

bug

 

 

 

 

 

Their diet usually consists of tiny wood particles, fungi and algae, as well as small insects.  They enter homes easily by accessing under door weather stripping, windows and garages.  Once they are inside the home, they tend to go to the bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms as those areas give the moist, hot, and humid environment they like!

Once the American Roach moves inside, it is often difficult to chase them from their hiding places, which is often under appliances, in drains, and inside cabinets.  They will eat crumbs, food particles and especially love pet food!  Like many house guests, if there is a water and food source there is no reason for them to leave!!

How we can help

The quarterly perimeter pest control treatment program (FourSeasons program) available at Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. will help with the elimination of the American Cockroach from around the perimeter of your home.  We will use specific products around outside your home to create a barrier so these insects are no longer thriving and multiplying within your landscape areas around the perimeter of your home.  In the event one flies in or crawls under your doors, simply call our office for a free service call which is included in our quarterly program. Our specially trained technician can also give advice on areas around your home that could help keep these bugs out of your home. These nuisance insects is a small price to pay for living in paradise!

Caribbean Crazy Ants Invading Tampa Cities

We all remember the childhood song that says the ants go marching one by one, but there are some neighborhoods that are wishing for just that.

A new insect that is invading our Tampa bay area is the Caribbean Crazy Ant (paratrechina pubens). There are many reasons why these ants are called Caribbean Crazy Ant. They move very rapidly and have random movements, not at all like the one by one single file trails we sing about.  These ants have similar characteristics to the crazy ants (paratrechina longicornis) we occasionally find on our kitchens, however the Caribbean Crazy Ants have nests of millions or more. This type of ant usually has trails that are more than three ants wide! If you see a lot of ants outside your home, and they are traveling in “willy-nilly” fashion chances are you have some Caribbean Crazy Ants.

            Caribbean Crazy Ants Identified in Land O Lakes

In our office, we are receiving calls from homeowners in the Land O Lakes, Lutz, Trinity and now Tampa areas complaining of the excess amount of ants. Often we can guess the type of ants by the homeowners’ description of their movements, the large amounts found, and where they are finding them on their property.

The Caribbean Crazy Ant workers are similar in size to most other ants, with the “queens” being a much larger ant (2 or 3 times larger!) in a reddish brown color. A nest of these ants will hold thousands/millions of workers as well as multiple queens, often found under logs or landscape materials. They will use different material, including dead Caribbean Crazy ants, to form bridges bypassing insecticide products to get where they need to go. These types of ants are known to travel very long distances, so unfortunately they may be invading your neighborhood sooner than you think!  Just treating your property preventively doesn’t guarantee that you will be able to keep them away.

Help available for Caribbean Crazy Ants in Tampa

To date, there is no effective product to simply and completely eliminate this particular ant species from reinvading your property. University of Florida and other facilities continue to research while we homeowners wait, holding our breath. In many situations we need to find the location of the original nests to be successful in treating them.  In the event that you have these Caribbean Crazy Ants around your home, there are some suggestions to help control them. Most importantly, keep all landscape plants and trees from touching your house walls. As indicated, these ants travel well so giving them access to your home may assist their invasion further.

Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. has developed a program that helps with the suppression of the Caribbean Crazy Ants by treating larger infested areas when necessary. Treating this way, hand in hand with our perimeter spray most often help keeps these Caribbean Crazy Ants away and ultimately preventing them coming into your home, making you so happy you’ll be singing again!

Controlling Roaches With Pest Control, Tampa

Our job in the office is often like playing the game of 20 questions. And although some customers don’t like the game when they call our office, it is a necessary part of our customer service. We often hear “we have bugs, so need a spray”. It is then our job to help to identify the type of problem the caller is experiencing so we can offer the best pest control program as a solution. Our office staff is trained in the different types of insects in Florida, as well as our Tampa pest control programs. After asking some specific questions, we are able to offer the potential customer different program choices to solve the problem they are experiencing. It then allows us to advise our technicians of the problems and concerns so they can treat properly using industry specific products for the job.

German Roaches… yuk!

The German cockroach problem is often the most challenging to identify over the phone, especially when there is such a negative stigma about them. This insect is not native to Florida, and does not live outdoors. If you have them in your home, it usually means they arrived through a delivery (such as furniture or appliances) or was carried in. The possibilities include: backpacks, gym bags, travel luggage, groceries, and even tv cable boxes! Due to their multiplying so quickly (The complete life cycle of this type of cockroach is roughly 100 to 200 days for females, during which 10,000 descendants of a single cockroach can be produced!), it is imperative that we start the eradication process as soon as they are identified.

Service & …Success!

A potential customer calls us and after determining the type of program most suited, we make an appointment for one of our technicians to visit the home. Unfortunately in our industry, customers often assume that one treatment will solve this type of problem yet it took weeks or sometimes many months for it to become an infestation. Our technicians perform a detailed inspection and usually find areas that are infested with thousands of roaches that a customer is not even aware of. Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc.’s indoor division has highly trained technicians, all of whom receive continuing education regarding insects and current products on a regular basis. They follow consistent custom procedures which we have developed and perfected, which help eradicate German roach problems quickly, using the best commercial grade products available on the market. We have a strict follow up procedure so that treatments can be done in a timely fashion, allowing for quick results. Our techs will also give information and suggestions to the homeowner on what things to do to help speed the eradication process. Often times, with customer cooperation the process can be completed within 4 – 5 weeks. See our customer reviews

Once the German Roaches are gone, it is recommended that our quarterly exterior maintenance program be continued to help our customers enjoy a pest free home! As the scheduling staff, I find it is always a pleasure to call to set up the weekly visits and hear that the homeowners are happy with the results! It is one of the reasons why I love being part of the family here at Nelson’s Pest Control Inc. For more information about our company, please visit our website: www.NelsonsPestControl.com.

Animal and Wildlife Prevention Tips

While numerous people might view with interest and pleasure as squirrels, raccoons, bunnies, opossums, skunks and a variety of various other woodland animals cavort around our lawns, their presence can in fact be rather troublesome. Wildlife can harm plants and home, and can frequently bring with them condition and disease-carrying fleas and ticks.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), wild animals accounted for 92 percent of reported cases of rabies in 2010 (the current information offered). Raccoons remained to be the most regularly reported rabid wildlife types (36.5 percent of all animal cases throughout 2010), followed by skunks (23.5 percent), bats (23 percent), foxes (7 percent), and various other wild animals, consisting of rodents and members of the bunny household (1.8 percent).

As city locations experience a boost in populaces of these animals, property owners might come across these animals for the initially time and not be completely prepared to take care of an invasion. While wildlife plays a crucial duty in nature, these animals can end up being a wellness and a hassle risk when they come too close and often into individuals’s houses.

Throughout the cooler months, wild animals are more apt to roam closer to human environments as they look for food and shelter. Some houses, even more than others will be more welcoming to these animals. Houses that are found near wildlife environments such as woodland protects, parks, golf creeks, rivers or courses, railway tracks, and uninhabited structures and have a presence of mature trees in the community or the backyard are most likely to be gone to by wildlife.

The Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. (Nelson’s Pest) reminds residents who could run into a wild animal on their home to call a regional wildlife or pest expert rather of trying to eliminate it by themselves. Experienced wildlife removal professionals understand the best ways to approach the animal and trap it while staying clear of being bitten. Despite the fact that an animal could not show indications of rabies, it does not imply it is not a provider of the virus.

Nelson’s Pest provides the following ideas to property owners to guarantee wildlife remain in the wild:

  • Set up door sweeps on outside doors and repair work harmed displays.
  • Set up chimney caps.
  • Cover exhaust fan openings; soffit and attic vents.
  • Cover tops of window wells.
  • Change loose mortar and weather condition stripping around the basement foundation and windows.
  • Check roofing systems each year for indications of water damage.
  • Keep tree limbs cut down 6 to 8 feet from the roofline and shop fire wood a minimum of 20 feet far from your home.
  • Keep your trash in a safe and secure container that can not be opened by animals.
  • Keep attics, basements and crawl areas well ventilated and dry.
  • Shop birdseed in a safe location and hang your feeders in places where just birds can reach them as bird feeders can bring in raccoons, possums, and even bears.
  • Location birdbaths where wildlife can not reach them or supply birds with water far from the house.
  • Birdbaths, fountains or animal water dishes could draw wildlife insects, specifically where water is limited.
  • Fencing, plant option and landscape design can play a duty in whether your backyard and yard is more or less appealing to annoyance wildlife.
  • If you have fruit trees in your backyard, make sure to get rid of or choose of ripe fruit.
  • Do not leave brush, leaf stacks or various other debris to gather.
  • Keep food in airtight containers and dispose of trash routinely.
  • Keep pet food and water dishes indoor. Do not motivate raccoons, deer and squirrels by feeding them.
