Termites are starting to swarm. This means Spring is just about here. Please be on the lookout for these flying insects. This usually the only way you will be aware of the presence of Termites. Most people will ignore the swarm because it will only last a few days. You will usually not see another swarm until the following year and because of this people think the problem is gone. In reality something is lurking http://ow.ly/Lmlx8

The Indian Meal Moth can infest a very wide range of dry foods, and vegetables; such as cereal, bread, pasta, rice, dried fruits/nuts, and grains. The food they are infesting will almost look like it’s webbed together. The adults are about 8 to 10mm in length with 16 to 20mm wingspans. Their fore wings are bronze to dark gray in color, while the upper half of the wings will be yellowish-gray, with a dark band where the two colors meet. The body of the larvae is off-white with brown heads, and at full maturity can be approximately 12mm in length. The entire life cycle for these guys is anywhere from 30 to 300 days, and a female moth can lay between 60 and 400 eggs on one food surface. The eggs will hatch in 2 to 14 days, and the larval stage lasts from 2 to 41 weeks depending on the temperature of their environment. If you have found any larvae or moths infesting anything, it is important to throw out all food sources that have not been kept in tightly sealed containers. They can, surprisingly, get through very tight spots, including sealed bags by chewing through them. The Indian Meal Moths are notorious for being a pain to get rid of, and crawl on ceilings and spin cocoons in other regions of the home, not just in the kitchen/pantry area where they hatched from. While being hard to get rid of, they can be eliminated by either intense heat, or extreme cold temperatures but only when this form of treatment seems practical. There are non-toxic ways of doing this as well, such as pheromone traps, but these are not always effective. As always, if you fear you have an infestation, just give Nature’s Way Pest Control a call, and we will be out as soon as we can for your free estimate! 518-745-5958

All too often people will run screaming from bats, I mean why not? Don’t they intentionally get stuck in our hair? Won’t they drink our blood? They’ll give me rabies won’t they? No, actually those are just some old wives tales. Contrary to popular belief, not all bats have rabies, and they don’t really want anything to do with us, especially the ones who think our attics are nice places to catch up on some sleep. Unlike what most people think, they are not rodents, or anything like mice or rats, and they aren’t as dirty as we are led to believe. They are meticulous when it comes to cleaning and grooming themselves. The smell that we all believe comes from them is actually the build-up of guano (droppings), and urine underneath their roosting site. Bats do have tiny little teeth, which are capable of puncturing human skin, but usually will not bite unless provoked, or feel the need to defend themselves, or their young. It is NEVER a good idea to handle a bat, as previously stated, they will bite if they deem it necessary. If you find yourself in the position where you would have to handle them, make sure you are wearing thick leather gloves and use a net, towel, or plastic container. Even though rabies is not as common as you may think in bats, it is never a bad idea to use the necessary precautions while handling them. Rabies is a deadly disease. The most common bats you will find roosting up in your attic space would be the Little Brown Bat and the Large Brown Bat. The Little Browns only weigh about 3/10 to 4/10 of an ounce, are about 3 to 3.5 inches in length while roosting, and their wingspan stretches from 8.5 to 10 inches. However, don’t let the “big” in the Big Brown Bats name fool you. While being larger than the Little Brown Bat, they will only weigh about a ½ ounce, with a wingspan of 11 to 13 inches, and a length of about 4.5 inches while roosting. Bats do not attack people, bats are attracted to insects, and insects are attracted to us. So, while it may look like they are swooping in on you, what they’re really after are those little mosquitos flying around that you don’t notice. It is very important to know that you should NEVER seal your home without first performing an exclusion. People panic when they find out they have bats in their attics, and will instantly seal off all entry points to their home. When this happens all of those bats that were in there sleeping after their long night of flying and eating, are now stuck inside. These bats will either try to escape the home through your living spaces, or they will, sadly, die up there. How fun of a mess will that be to clean up a couple weeks down the road? Probably not too fun at all in fact. It is illegal to kill bats, as they are protected in the State of New York, meaning bat exclusions are not normally possible from mid-May through early-August, as the bats will have their young which are not yet able to fly. If we performed the exclusion at that time, the babies would be stuck without the adults and would die in there. If you feel you have a bat issue, or even if you just want your attic checked for them, call Nature’s Way Pest Control, Inc for your free estimate today! 518-745-5958

What are the benefits of interior AND exterior baiting for mice?

In the winter months, humans want a place that is warm, comfortable and has a food and water source. Mice have a similar way of thinking and often invade our homes because of the benefits of having 4 walls and a roof over your head. It is never pleasant to realize that you are sharing your home with rodents that can carry disease, and use urine as a way to lead other mice into the same path. Whether they go after your animal’s food, crumbs left behind in the kitchen, or even the silverware drawers, we have a solution that will help you live peacefully without any unwelcomed critters.

At Nature’s Way Pest Control, we have an approach that will get the mice already inside of your house to go outside in search of a food and water source due to the dehydration our baiting system will cause. If you ate an entire bag of very salty popcorn, you would feel the urgency to go grab a glass of water. If you did not have the capability of just walking over to your sink to grab a glass of water, your instinct would tell you to go elsewhere to look for that water. The biggest part of the process is to significantly decrease the infestation inside of your home. Once this is accomplished, the next step is where the exterior baiting stations come in. They will act as a pit stop for mice before they find a way into your house to look for food and a warm place to nest. The same bait will be used outside, so the mice will ingest it, then the dehydration kicks in and they will stay outside due to the fact that they know there is a constant food and water source there. Therefore, never making it into your house to wreak havoc on your food, belongings, attic spaces and basements.
At the end of the day, what it comes down to is that it is unsafe and unsanitary to let a mice infestation go too far before calling a professional. We will keep your children, pets and well-being in min http://ow.ly/IZQqu http://ow.ly/IZQwN http://ow.ly/IZQyX http://ow.ly/IZS06 http://ow.ly/IZSt5

The weather is breaking and so are pest. Stay protected and schedule an appointment with us. Did you know that Carpenter Ants have a main colony and several satellite colonies? Whats even more concerning is that these colonies communicate with each other. A carpenter Ant can forage over 100 yards away from its nest. Do you have a perimeter guard up to protect help protect your home from invasion??? http://ow.ly/Li63x

Have you noticed small holes (roughly a half inch) in the siding of your home, deck or other wooden structures? These holes are commonly left behind by Carpenter Bees. Like Carpenter Ants, they do not eat the wood but use wood structures to form nesting sites by tunneling through the wood and pushing the wood shavings out of the way. Carpenter Bees are typically not very social insects, so it is uncommon to see them in mass quantities. It is common to confuse Carpenter Bees with Bumble Bees, as they have a similar appearance. However, Bumble Bees typically nest in the ground and are very social with one another. See the photo below that illustrates the difference between the two.

Although Carpenter Bees are normally docile and present little to no threat to human safety, they are very difficult to exterminate. Female Bees will lay their eggs inside of these tunnels in the spring, which then grow to be adults by summer. These bees will return back to the nest to hibernate over the winter. Due to the breeding habits, and simply how extravagant their tunneling sites are, a one time Pesticide application would do little to no good. The open holes left behind by these Bees also will attract woodpeckers to attack the home searching for insects inside.

If you are thinking of trying to handle a Carpenter Bee issue on your own, it would be best to call a professional to have an inspection done to figure out how the process should be carried out. Certain products must be used in order to eradicate the issue properly. If left untreated, you could end up with large holes that other insects will try to set up shop in, as well as the Woodpeckers that are known to cause extensive damage.

PAVEMENT ANTS: Tetramorium caespitum, or commonly referred to as pavement ants, are a species of ant native to Europe but were introduced to North America. The common name comes from the way these ants make their nests in North America, which is usually burrowed under sand and under pavement. They are very aggressive when trying to expand their colonies and will attempt to attack and conquer other colonies that are nearby in the early springtime, which can lead to large battles occurring on sidewalks and roads leaving hundreds to thousands of ants dead. The ants are dark brown to an almost blackish color and can be anywhere from 2.5 to 4 mm in size. Unlike the carpenter ant, they do not destroy structures. They are more of a nuisance


CARPENTER ANTS: Genus: Camponotus. There are over 1000 different species of Carpenter Ants, the most commonly known is the black carpenter ant, Camponotus Pennsylvanicus. These ants are indigenous to many parts of the world that have forests. They create their colonies by digging through dead, damp wood. They do not actually consume the wood, but burrow through it creating tunnels that leave an almost saw dust-like by product called frass, which usually can be seen under infested areas in a home. Carpenter ants can cause widespread damage to wooden buildings or structures after infesting the wood, and are the major cause of structural damage to most homes. When infesting the wood, carpenter ants set-up colonies outside of the main colony called satellite nests that are smaller versions of the main colony. Many places that are infested with carpenter ants, have multiple satellite nests within the structure which therefore makes it difficult to exterminate. Before trying to home-remedy a problem such as this, call a professional to find out how infested your structure is and the course of treatment. http://ow.ly/J9Qqf
