Everybody has insects in their home at one time or another in their lives. Some are easier to get rid of than others. Calling in a professional pest control company, generally means you are most likely to find a long-lasting solution, rather than simply spraying a little insecticide yourself.
Wasps nests can be handled easily if they are in the ground. It is simple enough to see where the wasps are entering into the soil. Then you just buy a puffer bottle of powder from the hardware shop, squirt it around the nest entrance and the wasps carry it in. What if the nest is up a tree, or under the roofing system of the house. Do you really wish to be up a ladder being stung by countless upset wasps?
Forget it and call in the local professional exterminators Inglewood.
Ants are a pain in many houses. Finding the nest and pouring boiling water onto it might be really satisfying, but it will not eliminate more than a few thousands of the countless ants in the nest.
Finding termites can be hard, yet locating where they lie is absolutely necessary to choose the right termite eliminator program. The traditional method is to tap on the wood with the back of a screw driver, or to poke holes into the walls or even pull them apart.
Most of our termite inspectors now have the use of up to the minute infrared termite detection system, which is fast, reliable and does not require any damage to your house.
Your local Pest control company is extremely discreet and can be contacted over the Internet, so your neighbours need not know that you have unwelcome visitors. After all, it’s not the type of thing anybody likes to promote.

A publication by John C. Palumbo, at the website of the University of Arizona, Yuma Agricultural Center indicates that the pest feeds on and damages seedlings, new foliage and meristems (growth points) of cruciferous plants causing severe damage and deformation that makes the crops unusable as fresh produce. The list includes crops such as cabbage, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, turnip, arugula and rutabaga. It is also known to damage radish, watermelon, papaya, beets, potato, maize, sorghum, cotton, capers, pearl millet and some legumes. In non-crop areas it is sustained by feeding on weeds such as field bindweed, purple nutsedge, lamsquarter, black mustard, perennial sowthistle and perhaps sheperdspurse.
According to a report in the Western Farm Press, dated 2010-03-04, by Jian Bi, Entomology Farm Advisor, Monterey County, the Bagrada Bug was first discovered in Pasadena in 2008. Lacking any natural enemies in the United States it has rapidly expanded from its point of introduction into seven Southern California counties and Yuma County, Arizona. The Bagrada Bug is easily confused with the similarly shaped and colored, but larger stink bug relative, the Harlequin Bug, Murgantia histrionica. Gevork Arakelian, Senior Biologist, Los Angeles County Agricultural Commissioner, Weights & Measures Department says in a report at the UC Riverside Center for Invasive Species Research website, "Adult Bagrada bugs are 5-7 mm long, and have black, shield-shaped bodies with distinctive white and orange markings. Adult females are larger than males." The adult of the Harlequin Bug, established in the US since its initial identification in Texas circa 1864, is 8-11 mm in length, according to the online site, "BugGuide." Each female is capable of laying up to 100 eggs in 2-3 weeks, which she attaches to the undersides of host plant leaves or places in the soil. The eggs are barrel shaped and initially white, changing to orange as they age. The bug has five nymphal stages, called instars, between egg and adulthood. Newly hatched nymphs are orange and sometimes confused with ladybug adults. Their color becomes darker with each molt until they develop the characteristic black with white and orange markings. The wings develop gradually, with the insects becoming capable of flight in the adult stage. Photos of various instars can be seen at the Infonet-Biovision.org website.
Experts are hard at work seeking practical control methods including parasitic organisms and other natural predators. For now organic growers are emphasizing methods such as planting during cooler seasons, physical removal of the insects and treatment with materials such as diatomaceous earth, insecticidal soaps, neem and other insecticidal oils. In the short term those favoring conventional methods mention materials like carbamates, imidocloprid, various pyrethroids and other conventional insecticides as possibilities. It's logical to assume that information will be made available to the public as research and governmental regulations catch up with this infestation. Gardeners and commercial growers should only use organic methods or conventional materials currently registered for use against these bugs in their geographic locations and use them strictly according to label directions. One thing we can be relatively sure of is that Bagrada hilaris represents another in the long list of serious threats to US crops that must be addressed without delay.
