You Want Those Critters Gone? The Bug Dude Can Help!

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Don’t kill him, just get him out of my yard !!

It is absolutely unmistakable. That awful, penetrating odor that seems to just cling to everything near the source of it. When you drive past a dead one on the the highway, seemingly no matter how long it has been there, the car is filled with the smell, and everyone in the car gets the blame. You pray that your curious dog doesn’t discover one in the backyard, and come galloping into the house to share his misery with the whole family. Even worse, you hope one of them does not discover the doggie-door itself, and come into the house to wander around and possibly leave the terrible problem on the carpet or furniture. This, of course, just has to be skunks.

Summer is coming and you want to be able to enjoy your yard in private. Skunks, opossums, rats, squirrels, raccoons and nakes love your yard too !!!

Most of the pests in your yard are nocturnal, sleeping during the day in underground burrows and emerging around dusk to search for food. Skunks are the primary carrier of rabies. So, as cute as skunks are made to appear in children’s cartoons, clearly these are not animals we care to co-exist with.

No space is to small no animal is too large for the mighty technicians at Mid-Cities Pest Control, Inc. Scott Henry made it under an 18” deck to capture an unwanted house guest.

HERE ARE SOME STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO DETER UNWANTED CRITTERS

  • Keep pet food indoors and do not leave food of any kind outside.
  • Cover trash containers and secure lids.
  • Don’t leave plastic trash bags outside.
  • Change automatic sprinkler settings often.
  • Eliminate garbage, debris, lumber piles that critters could hide in or under
  • Block off entry to areas below decking, porches, or outside sheds using hardware cloth or wire fencing. This wire should go into the soil extending away from the structure.
  • Install motion-sensitive spotlights in garden areas, as the sudden bright light alarms the animals.
  • Eliminate turf pest insects such as white grubs, to reduce food supply to skunks on your property.

We can capture your all garden critters, skunks, raccoons, possums, and more. Time to relocate an unwanted pest from your yard ? Give us a call: 1.800.310.BUGS (2847)

Tick Season Is Coming: They’ll bug you this spring!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Because of the extra-mild winter this year, early spring could bring an unwelcome guest: the tick. Be warned: The warmer weather is good news for people and pets who want to be outside, but beware of an uptick of the hard-to-detect pest. The basic reason is that the eggs will hatch sooner. “Eggs are already in the ground, but this time is the time that they will be coming out in great numbers,” said Pollie Rueda, an entomologist stationed at the Smithsonian and Walter Reed Army institute of Research.

Did You Know … that tick season is from May through August, but with 70-degree temperatures in some places, the ticks may
get a jump on the season ?

The big concern for humans, according to the CDC, is that most tick infections occur during the “nymph” stage. Those recently hatched ticks are the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Because they are essentially invisible, preying on a host can easily go undetected.

Think of Ticks As the Arachnid Form of Vampires

Since 1992, the cases of Lymes disease have doubled, according to the CDC, and more than 21,000 cases are reported every year.
