Cricket season is upon us!

Every season has a different pest issue. This is the season for the cricket. They start showing up in houses, possibly chirping all night. I am sure you have had an evening or night where you have an onnoying cricket chirping in the same room that you are trying to sleep in. You get up and try to find them, but normally they are hidden under something and you can’t silence their song. We see it every year the crickets show up all at once to sing you to sleep. However, sleep is usually not easy to get when you have a cricket chirping near you in your bedroom. Crickets are one of those insects that are not concerning to you during the day. The issue however becomes quite apparent when the lights go out and the singing begins. Crickets can also damage clothing, drapes, or wall coverings with staining from feces or vomitus, or by feeding activities.  The crickets are primarily outdoor insects they are what we in pest control industry call occasional invaders. The cricket population increases in the months of August and September. The most important single cause of cricket infestations around homes and commercial buildings is lighting. Reducing outdoor lights is the first, and most important, step in a cricket control program. Low-pressure sodium vapor lights and yellow incandescent “bug lights” are less attractive to crickets than standard incandescent, fluorescent, mercury vapor or halogen lights. The second control measure is to seal all potential points of entry. Such sites will include door thresholds, weep holes, windows and such. Liquid insecticides sprays are another tool to eliminating crickets before they get into the structure. Insecticides are only a partial solution to cricket problems. Insecticides should be used in conjunction with reductions in outdoor lighting for best control. An (IPM) Integrated Pest Management plan should be implemented to take care of the issue. Please call, or email if you have any issues, concerns or you need to schedule an inspection or estimate.

Ant Control

Here we are starting a new month and the ants have been crazy! We have had all kinds of calls for ant control. It has been an extremely bad year for them. We at Advanced Pest Solutions always tell people that general spraying for ants is somewhat useless. The reason for this is that its a numbers game. You can kill all the ants you see and not put a dent in the colony or colonies that you are dealing with. APS will inspect first, and bait the areas that need to be treated. There are times when dusting a wall void is necessary. A determining factor that needs to be understood is that there are wall nesting ants and ground nesting ants. This needs to be determined in order to treat effectively. One of the biggest mistakes that is made with the baiting is the location of the bait placement. Sometimes sprays are applied on the outside and bait placements are applied on the inside. This actually can create a larger issue. Why would you want to bait interior and actually bring more ants into structure. Ants like most all other insects require more than just spraying baseboards. We have a great track record of eliminating ants in structures that have always had ant issues. There are many different things that can be done to help with ant infestation. You need to keep grass mown down, and bushes and trees trimmed off the structure. The other thing that is always a problem is moisture. Ants love moisture if you have moisture next to or under the structure. Gutters need to be installed with water being run away from the house. Conducive conditions are a main reason for ant infestations. Please give us a call for all your ant issues or questions. We would love to help any way we can. Our number is 918-440-8797.Pavement Ant
