Rodents

Nobody wants rats and mice in their property. Rodents are able to survive in most conditions, both inside and outside. Their habitation is based strictly on the availability of food and harbor ages. Rodents are some of the most adaptable mammals around, and their ability to feed on many different types of food allows them to survive in any environment. They reproduce quickly, and their sophisticated behavior patterns give them the ability to avoid the dangers of potential enemies. The identification and sealing of entry points as well as good sanitation is important in the elimination of rodent infestation. Remember mice can enter openings as small as 1/4 inch and 3/8 - 1/2 inch for rats.Rats are nocturnal in nature and if you actually see them then you have a serious problem. They spread disease, damage structures, and contaminate food animal feed, and the environment around them. A single rat will produce 25,000 droppings per ear and will also shed more than one million body hairs each year. The physical damage to structures which can include electrical, plumbing, and woodwork problems can be extensive and costly.


--Norway Rat--
Also known as the brown rat, gray rat, common rat, house rat, wharf rat, sewer rat, barn rat, and water rat, they are actually not from Norway but were first identified there. They are able to gnaw through wood, lead aluminum, copper, cinder block, and uncured concrete. They burrow extensively in soil and are excellent swimmers and good climbers. They are nocturnal, most of their activity and feeding takes place between a half-hour after sunset and a half-hour before sunrise.

Life Cycle / Life Span
Adults only live from 9-12 months.

Where Found
They usually nest in the basements and lower portions of buildings.

Diet
They are omnivores so they can eat just about anything but prefer meats, fish, flour, cereal grains, fruits, vegetables. They will eat almost any human food and garbage. They consume ¾ to an ounce of food each day and require water daily to survive from ½ to 1 ounce of water every day.

Reproduction
Norway rats will become sexually mature in 3-5 months of age. The females create a nest in secluded places when inside a building, o in burrows or tunnels when outside. There can be from four to sever litters each year, with up to a dozen young in each litter, so the population can grow quite rapidly.Each nest can produce as many as 200 wasps over the summer.

Appearance
Often completely black, but can also be grayish brown, and may
vary from a pure gray to a blackish or reddish brown. The underside
is usually gray to yellow white. The body is heavy and thick, from
7-10 inches long. The tail is shorter than the head and body
about 6 to 8 1/8 inches long. The tail is dark on top with a lighter underside.


--Roof Rat--
They are probably the most common rat species found, also known as Alexandrian rats, black rats, fruit rats, and ship rats. Most of their activity is at night because they are nocturnal.

Life Cycle / Life Span
About 1 year

Where Found
Trees, ground, over upper portions of buildings.

Diet
They are omnivores, they eat snails, fruits, grains, vegetables, nuts and seeds, pet food from unsealed garbage containers and just about anything leftover from humans. They usually consume ½ to 1 ounce of food daily and drink up to 1 ounce of water daily.

Reproduction
The female Roof rat reaches sexual maturity at 3 months of age. They are in heat approximately every 4-5 days. The gestation period is 21 to 23 das, with each litter being 5-8 pups. After giving birth the female is capable of being in heat again in 24 to 48 hours, so many generations can be produced each year.

Appearance
The body is 6 ½ to 8 inches long and are black to brownish gray, with the
underside being gray to white. The tail is hairless and longer than the
head and body, from 71/2 to 10 inches long.

Bees

Bees are generally social insects with a marked division of labor between the various types of bees in the colony. A colony of bees includes a queen, males (drones) and workers. The queen is the only sexually developed female in the hive, and the largest in the colony. The queen starts to lay eggs about ten days after mating. The drones are male bees that have no stingers. Drones don’t collect food or pollen from flowers, their sole purpose is to mate with the queen. The workers are the smallest bees in the colony which are sexually undeveloped females. They live approximately 21 to 35 days. They guard the hive entrance, feed the queen and larvae, and help to keep the hive cool by fanning their wings across the openings. They also collect nectar to make honey. Bee’s wings stroke 11,400 times per minute, thus making their distinctive buzz.

Good sanitation is critical both inside and outside your home or facility as dead bees can still sting so precautions should be taken. Honey also attracts rodents and various insect nests which can bring on additional problems.


--Honey Bee--
They are social insects living in large colonies of 20,000 to 80,000 individuals.

Life Cycle/Life Span

Drones develop in 24 days, and queens in 15 days. If drones are kept in a queen-less hive, they live three to four months but normally their lives are very short. Workers live 5 weeks to 3 months.

Where Found
Cracks and crevices and void walls

Diet
Honey is the bees’ diet, but royal jelly, which is a special secretion, those becoming workers only receive this special mix for 3 days but queens get this throughout their life. 

Appearance
They are fuzzy yellow brown to black colored bee.

Wasps

They get their name from the paper-like material from which their nests are made and are also called umbrella wasps. They aggressively protect their nests and their sting can be quite painful.

Life Cycle/Life Span
Eggs develop into adults in an average of 48 days.

Where Found
Located frequently under the eaves of houses, but may also be found inside garages, in attics, and other protected areas, they also like orchards and vineyards

Diet
They feed insects to their larvae and feed on pollen and nectar

Appearance
They are yellow and black, and are about ¾ inch to one inch in size.

Reproduction
Each nest can produce as many as 200 wasps over the summer.

Bed Bugs

They are very temperature sensitive, and the optimum temperature they are looking for is about that of human skin.

Life Cycle/Life Span
Well fed adults can live up to a year and a half, and at least 3-4 generations are produced every year.

Where Found
Cracks and crevices of the bed frame, dressers, suitcases, laundry hampers, furniture, behind picture frames, wallpaper, In cracks of floorboards and many more places. They are skilled at finding hiding places.

Diet
Their favorite meal is humans but if they are desperate, they may take a meal from birds or rodents. They use small claws to attach themselves to the victim and adults will feed off the host for 10-15 minutes before becoming engorged.

Appearance
Usually just 1/6th to 1/4th inch in size, and reddish brown
In color, but as they feed they become brighter red.

Reproduction
Female bed bugs may lay 10-50 eggs at a time until they produce about 200 to 500 eggs. The eggs hatch in 6 to 10 days in warm weather or heated buildings but delay for 30-40 days in cool conditions. Nymphs’ emerge and try to find a blood meal. When they do, thy will go through 5 nymph molt stages and Become adults which usually takes between 6 weeks to a year, depending greatly upon temperature and food supply.

Fleas

Small wingless, blood sucking pests that create a lot of anxiety for man.

Life Cycle/Life Span
The adults live up to a year feeding off their hosts.

Where Found
Grass areas, and pets beds.

Diet
Will feed on any warm-blooded animal, including mankind.

Appearance Around 1/16 inch in size and are brownish or black in color.

Reproduction
After a blood meal, a female will lay around ten eggs. The eggs hatch in 2-10 days. From the beginning, the larvae are quite active and hungry. Larvae can feed on just about any organic matter including dried blood. This stage will last anywhere from three weeks to three months, going through three instars. After a larva becomes a pupa, It is then capable of infecting a host. This stage varies greatly, under optimum conditions it may be only about a week, But pupae can even overwinter for many months. The life cycle can be completed in as little as a month, but usually is several months long.

Pigeons

Are scavengers that are dependent upon man for their habitat, and are not a wild bird. Some viruses and funguses may be transmitted to man from pigeons, although it is not a common occurrence, and can also be a host to parasites such as mites, lice, fleas, and ticks.

Life Cycle/Life Span
Can live up to 15 years in the wild.

Where Found
Nests are built on ledges of buildings, in caves, or crevices.

Diet
Seeds, grains, vegetables, fruit, some insects and spiders, and even garbage.

Appearance
Relatively large in size, and greatly differ in color patterns.

Reproduction
Usually two eggs are laid which hatch in 17-19 days. The young are ready for flight in 35-37 days.
