Despite their name, carpenter bees do not help to build structures, in fact, they do quite the opposite. Carpenter bees look very similar to bumble bees, with the most noticeable difference between the two being the fact that carpenter bees have a furless, shiny abdomen. Carpenter bees are solitary creatures, with each female creating their own nest to lay their eggs in, however, females often choose the same area or piece of wood to create their nests in - increasing the amount of structural damages that they can cause. Also, woodpeckers increase the damages that the bees initially cause by pecking at the opening of their nest in order to feed on the bee larvae. It is also important to know that carpenter bees prefer to invade older pieces of softwood that are not painted, stained, or treated in any manner. To prevent these damaging pests from creating their nests on your home or other structures on your property we want to provide you with 3 easy to execute prevention tips:
Paint or stain eaves, trim, or wooden shingles found on your home. Similarly, make sure that wooden structures located on your property are painted or stained.
When building structures on your property, try to use hardwoods instead of softwoods.
Cover the ends of deck boards or railings with metal flashing.

Many people are under the assumption that bed bugs are elusive, hard to detect pests. And while there is some truth to this - their flat oval-shaped bodies allow them to hide easily out of sight - if you know what signs bed bugs leave behind you can easily identify an infestation and get the professional help that is needed to eliminate them as quickly as possible. If bed bugs have taken up residence inside of your Mehlville home you may start to notice blood stains on linens, mattresses, box springs, floors, and walls. Bed bugs are messy feeders and as they eat they often drip blood, also if they become squished they will leave behind a blood stain. Also, finding black streaks (bed bug excrement) on bedding, mattresses, box springs, in drawers, and in closets can indicate a bed bug infestation. Another way that homeowners have discovered an infestation is by noticing a musty smell in the air of their home. If you notice any of the above signs or you just would like the peace of mind to know whether these parasitic pests are present in your home or not, contact Rottler Pest and Lawn Solutions. We can provide accurate K-9 inspections and if needed highly effective heat treatments to quickly eliminate bed bugs from any Mehlville home.
