Let Smitty’s Vegas Pest Control Get Rid Of Your Pest!
Bedbugs may enter your home undetected through luggage, clothing, used beds, couches, and other items. Their flattened bodies make it possible for them to fit into tiny spaces, about the width of a credit card. Bedbugs do not have nests like ants or bees but tend to live in groups in hiding places. Their initial hiding places are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to feed off people at night. Smitty’s Vegas pest control uses a scientific method when removing bed bugs.
German Cock Roach
When dealing with the German Cock Roach Smitty’s Vegas Pest Control will always have to treat your home from 2 to 7 times depending on the severity of the problem.
The German cockroach is a widely distributed urban pest. It is also the most common cockroach species in houses, apartments, restaurants, hotels, and other institutions. Adult German cockroaches are 1/2 to 5/8 inch long and tan to light brown. Although they have fully developed wings, they do not fly. The German cockroach is best identified by its small size and by two dark parallel lines running from the back of the head to the wings. German cockroaches usually prefer a moist environment with a relatively high degree of warmth. The insects are mostly scavengers and will feed on a wide variety of foods. They are especially fond of starches, sweets, grease, and meat products. In many locations, garbage is a principal food source.
Around Las Vegas, most scorpions are small, but the largest species grown to about 5-1/2 inches long. Colors of the different species range from blackish to yellowish (straw). Scorpions are most active at night, and most species live on the ground. Some species make burrows, while others just hide under logs, rocks, boards, and trash. Bark scorpions live on vertical surfaces such as trees, bushes, and walls.
Black Widows & Desert Brown Spiders
Spiders have eight legs and two body parts—a head region and an abdomen. They lack wings and antennae. Although spiders often are found on plants, they eat mainly insects, other spiders, and related arthropods, not Spiders resemble insects and sometimes are confused with them, but they are arachnids, not insects. They and their associated webs usually are found in dark, dry, sheltered, relatively undisturbed places such as among piles of wood, rubbish, or stones; in culverts, hollow stumps, and old animal burrows; in garages, sheds, barns, crawl spaces, utility meter boxes, and outhouses; and sometimes among plants. Most spiders have toxic venom, which they use to kill their prey. Las Vegas pest control companies are always getting calls for Black Widows because it takes a special treatment in removing them.
Ants also have large heads, elbowed antennae, and powerful jaws. These insects belong to the order Hymenoptera, which includes wasps and bees. Ants can enter the home through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweets or greasy food substances in the kitchen pantry or storeroom areas. Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food. They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations.
The most distinguishing physical feature of the earwig is the claw-like forceps (or cerci) located on the end of the abdomen. These forceps are straight-sided on most females but are more pincer-like on males. Earwigs use their forceps mainly as protective weapons, but they also use them to capture prey. Earwigs are outdoor insects usually found in damp areas, such as under mulch, dead leaves, logs, and piles of firewood, boards, stones and other debris or in rotted wood where they feed on moist, decaying plant material. Earwigs attack living plants, including vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants.
Wasps are more aggressive than bees. They are also able to sting repeatedly, so an encounter with a crowd of angry wasps can be very painful. If you’re allergic to wasp stings, you could die if you’re stung frequently. Wood-boring wasps don’t make nests inside wood like carpenter bees. Instead, they lay their eggs in holes in the wood. When the eggs hatch, the larvae chew their way through the wood and whatever else is between them and freedom. They can chew through drywall, flooring, carpet, ceilings or wood beams. The only things they can’t chew through are stone and ceramics. Vegas Pest Control Companies deal with wasps buy they are not high on the list.
Bees, on the other hand, are high on Vegas Pest Control Companies list because they can be very aggressive and dangerous.

There are more than 900 species of crickets; the Gryllidae are distributed all around the world except at latitudes 55° or higher, with the greatest diversity being in the tropics. They occur in varied habitats from grassland, bushes and forest to marshes, beaches and caves. Crickets are mainly nocturnal, and are best known for the loud persistent chirping song of males trying to attract females, although some species are mute. The singing species have good hearing, via the tympani (eardrums) on the tibiae of the front legs. When Vegas Pest Control Companies come out for crickets it’s not because they’re dangerous, they’re just ignoring with their loud chirps.
A mouse (plural: mice) is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best-known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are locally common. They are known to invade homes for food and shelter. Mice can at times be vermin, damaging and eating crops, causing structural damage and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. In North America, breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrement has been linked to hantavirus, which may lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. House mice are small rodents with relatively large ears and small, black eyes. They weigh about 1/2 ounce and usually are light brownish to gray. An adult is about 5 to 7 inches long, including the 3- to 4-inch tail. Ants have a narrow “waist” between the abdomen and thorax. Smitty’s Vegas Pest control will set traps and stop mice from eating holes in your walls.
Rats can leave behind disease in your kitchen cabinets so don’t waste time, call a Vegas pest control company today.
Because rats are active throughout the year, periodically check for signs of their presence. Once rats have invaded your garden or landscaping, you can find them in your home unless your house is truly rodent proof. It will only be a matter of time before you find evidence of them indoors. Experience has shown it is less time consuming to control rodents before their numbers get too high, and fewer traps and less bait will be required if control is started early. Droppings, fresh gnaw marks, and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. Mouse nests are made from finely shredded paper or other fibrous material, usually in sheltered locations. House mice have a characteristic musky odor that reveals their presence. Mice are active mostly at night, but they can be seen occasionally during daylight hours.
