How To Spot A Brown Recluse Infographic

The Brown Recluse spider.

With each word, that line gets more and more terrifying.

The Brown Recluse spider is a staple to Tulsa, right along with Sooner football and fried catfish. Unfortunately, the Brown Recluse isn’t nearly as fun as screaming “boomer sooner” at the TV screen while you’re elbow deep into a bucket of fried catfish.

The Brown Recluse spider has earned its malicious reputation because of the nature of its bites. If you are ever bitten, chances are you won’t even know it until it’s too late. It takes about a week before you’ll experience pain from a Brown Recluse bite. About this time, the infected bite area will be red, with shades of grey and purple. As the wound progresses, the living tissue will begin to decay and die; a symptom known as necrosis. Yikes!

Well, its easy to establish how awful a Brown Recluse bite is, and we know we don’t want them in our homes. What we don’t all know is exactly how to spot one.

The following infographic, is a guide to understanding and spotting Brown Recluse spiders:

How Serious A Problem Is A Bed Bug Infestation?

The number of reported bed bug infestations in North America has risen steadily since a point in around about 1995 when these creatures, which had been considered all but a thing of the past since the forties, began to make a comeback. They are small reddish brown bugs that like to live inside houses and tend to house themselves and their very small, sticky eggs in things like sofas, beds, cushions and even soft toys. There are different species, some of which prefer to feed on certain animals (for example ‘bat bugs’) and one in particular which considers human blood its favorite food. These are the ones you are most likely to have a problem with in your own house.

Don’t Only People with Dirty Houses Get Bed Bugs?

 

It is a common misconception that bed bugs are only found in dirty places. It is blood that they feed on, and nothing else, so they don’t prefer to live in dusty or dirty places like some other insects – as long as there are people to bite, the bugs are happy enough. The idea that they are more common in dirty places is probably more down to the fact that in places that aren’t clean or well maintained it is unlikely that anything will be done about the bug infestation too quickly, so it could be from places like these (for example seats in old movie theaters or even on subway trains) that people end up picking up bugs on their clothes. Once the bugs make their way into your clothes or luggage, they can set up home in your nice clean house. This means that if you do discover that you’ve got bed bugs, this isn’t a comment on the hygiene of you or your house.

Are They Dangerous?

 

Bed bugs are more a nuisance than they are dangerous. They are not known to be able to pass any diseases on to people, and their bites, though they can leave blisters, are no worse than mosquito bites. Of course, the idea that in your sleep there are insects crawling around sucking your blood is not a pleasant one, and nobody wants bed bugs sharing their homes, but it is not a cause for panic if you do find them. It is however very important to have them exterminated as soon as you possibly can by a professional pest control company, because otherwise you are going to continue to suffer from the bites and the infestation will only get bigger.

You are also of course risking passing on the bed bugs to other people, which isn’t very nice! A pest control specialist will be able to rid you of your bugs safely and quickly using pesticides and also in some cases using techniques where the bugs living in items are sealed up in plastic so that the insects all suffocate (this can be a good way to kill bugs hiding in things like teddy bears). You should not attempt to fight the bugs yourself as it is really a job for professionals who have the right equipment and poisons.

How To Effectively Manage The Pests In Your Garden

Garden Pests

If you’re an avid gardener you will know that not all sides to nature are pretty. Pests are impossible to avoid completely but pests can be managed, providing that the gardener is adequately prepared. There are many methods of garden pest control and a common method is known as integrated pest management, abbreviated to IPM.

A Basic Definition Of IPM

IPM is a relatively common sense approach which involves a gardener understanding when a problem might occur and why. With this knowledge, a driver can try to prevent the pest problem from occurring in the first place and keep a close eye on their garden when pests do appear. Ideally, integrated pest management methods would prevent pest damage using the most economical, non-hazardous methods available.

How To Prevent Pests Appearing In Your Garden

IPM isn’t a single method of pest control, it is an ongoing preventative process. In order to prevent pest problems from occurring in the first place, research the insects that affect your area and avoid planting seeds that are susceptible. You should also grow trap crops to divert any garden pests from your plants. If there are any insects which would benefit your crop, encourage them to live in your garden. Always be sure to remove any plants which are diseased and during the Autumn, remove any falling leaves. If you allow leaves to rest on your crops, this provides shelter for pests.

Monitoring Pests In Your Garden

Keep a very close eye on your garden for the first signs of pests. If your plants contain holes, begin to wilt or change color, this could be the sign of pests. Always be sure to check under the leaves for pests. Before treating a pest problem, try to determine where it came from. Different pest solutions apply to different problems. If the issue is a disease, insecticide will not help.

Considering How Much Action To Take

It is important to consider whether the problem is a one off, temporary or permanent so you can treat the issue accordingly. If you have only seen one pest, that doesn’t mean you need to go mad and stock up on pest control problems. Is the pest doing harm to your plants? Once you remove the pest, will be problem be gone? It is important to put your pest problem into perspective and act appropriately rather than panicking at the first sign of an insect.

Keeping Pests Under Control

Once you have established that you do have a pest problem that needs to be tackled, try to treat the problem with minimal chemicals until you have to. A great natural way to avoid pests is to divert them using crops or sticky bands. You may find that removing pests with your hands quickly resolves the problem. When you need to use pesticides, be sure to get the right one. For vegetable crops, you will need a pesticide that is suitable for human consumption, look out for a non-toxic label on the bottle.
