Pests Brought In On Xmas Trees

When I get calls about unusual indoor pests at this time of year. I consider Christmas trees, holiday wreaths and other fresh greenery as a possible source. There are two types of Christmas tree pests. The first are those that feed on Christmas trees in the field and are problems for the tree growers such as red spider mites, spruce needle miners, spruce budworms, pine needle scales and bagworms. Aphids and spruce spider mites are the two most common Christmas tree pests found on trees. White pine aphids are small black insects that customers might find crawling on their pine trees and ornaments. These pests that feed on the tree should have been eliminated by the grower before the tree is harvested.

Mosquito And Tick Diseases Triple In 12 Years

If it seems like every time you turn around there's a new warning about a brand-new disease being spread by mosquitoes. It's true. www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2018/p0501-vs-vector-borne.html CDC, the Centers for Disease Control, has just released a report detailing reported illnesses from ticks and mosquitoes in the years from 2004 to 2016 in the U.S. and its territories. Amazingly, the number of annual cases of disease more than tripled during that time from 27,388 in 2004 to more than 96,000 reported in 2016. It's assumed that the number of actual cases was much higher still since so many are not properly diagnosed. For example, recent data suggests that Lyme disease affects about 300,000 Americans each year. That is 8 to 10 times the number reported to CDC. It's also possible that over the 12-year period, people and their physicians became more aware. Why the Big Jump in the Number of Diseases?

Warehouse Conditions That Attract Rats And Mice!

The best way to keep rats or mice out of a warehouse is to stop them at the perimeter. Eliminating conditions that attract rats and mice to the outside of the building can reduce mouse problems inside the building. Once you have rats or mice nesting or forging around the outside of a warehouse, it's only a matter of time until they find their way inside. Consider that young mice only need a slotted opening about 3/8 of an inch wide, just slightly larger than the thickness of the average pencil. Young rats only need about 1/2 to ¾ of an inch.

Fall Invaders

Occasional invaders is one term that we use to describe those pests that enter structures periodically, and only under certain circumstances. They are not permanent indoor residents that are able to successfully reproduce indoors. Most occasional invaders are normally outdoor pests. Some are foundation pests found in mulch, woodpiles, and plants around the perimeter of a building (we often call these "perimeter invaders" when they move inside). Examples are earwigs, sow bugs, pill bugs, millipedes, clover mites, springtails, and crickets. They usually move inside when their outdoor conditions change and become too wet, too dry, too hot, too cold, or too crowded. Most are not adapted to drier indoor conditions and die fairly quickly.
