An Insect’s Environment
Living with pets and children creates more habitats for insects. Leftover food crumbs, dry dog food and even shedded hair can fuel an infestation. Other spiders like the poisonous Black Widow Enjoy drier locations with access to water and plenty of other insects to hunt. A garage is an excellent location for this spider.
Ants will invade any structure once a food supply or nest site has been found. Myth: Ants only infest “dirty” areas. There is actually no particular criteria for an ant’s habitat other then a nearby source of food and water. Once we obtain control, we suggest continued outside treatments to ensure ants do not re-infest the home.
A cockroach can live a week without it head. The roach only dies without a mouth, it can’t drink water so it dies of thirst. Cockroaches can run up to three miles an hour. Young cockroaches need only a crack as thin as a dime (about .5mm wide) to crawl into. Adult males can squeeze into a space of 1.6mm or the thickness of a quarter.
