The Brown Recluse is one of two poisonous spiders we encounter in the Arlington area. Proper identification is crucial. Many people confuse other spiders with the Brown Recluse. Our professionals can correctly identify a Brown Recluse – do not trust just any “exterminator” to identify this spider. An incorrect identification could result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars being wasted. Once properly identified, the Brown Recluse treatment requires a lot of planning and preparation; it is labor intensive when performed correctly. For a Brown Recluse treatment to be effective we need full cooperation from the homeowner or business owner.

Fire Ants have few predators which allows them to populate an area quickly. While you often see their large mounds they also live in inaccessible areas. They can cause allergic reactions and their sting is especially painful because they sting repeatedly. Fire Ants are attracted to electromagnetic fields, so they can be found around equipment related to homes and businesses. In fact, Billions of dollars in damage to electrical equipment is caused by Fire Ants each year.

Adult bed bugs are about 3/16-inch long and reddish-brown, with oval, flattened bodies. Their coloration is similar to an apple seed although their size is closer to a lentil. The bugs are sometimes mistaken for ticks, cockroaches, carpet beetles or other household insects. Immature bed bugs (nymphs) resemble the adults, but are smaller and lighter in color. Bed bugs can crawl rapidly over floors, walls, ceilings and other surfaces.

Yellow jackets are an important predator of many damaging landscape pests; however, this landscape service they perform is not enough to endear them to most people. Their ability to sting multiple times coupled with their aggressively defensive nature makes them one of those insects that people understandably want nowhere near their homes.

The Baldfaced Hornet is actually a yellowjacket. It receives its common name of Baldfaced from its largely black color but mostly white face, and that of hornet because of its large size and aerial nest.

In general, the term “hornet” is used for species which nest above ground and the term “yellowjacket” for those which make subterranean nests. All species are social, living in colonies of hundreds to thousands of individuals.

If you see either of these around your home or business, stay away and call us immediately.
