Say Buy Bugs [BEST]

From retail stores to five-star hotels, you'll find bed bugs anywhere you find their favorite food source: people. According to a 2018 report from the National Pest Management Association, 97 percent of pest experts had been called to a location to exterminated bed bugs within 12 months of being surveyed. In fact, the same report found that 84 percent of pest professionals surveyed said they had gone to exterminate another type of vermin, only to discover a bed bug infestation, and 66 percent of the pest professionals who participated in the survey said that the number of bed bug calls they received was increasing.

While getting rid of these unpleasant pests once they've occupied your home isn't easy, ensuring they don't become unwanted guests in your space is simpler than you'd expect. Read on to find out which items pest professionals say could be inviting bed bugs into your home. And if you're worried about inviting pests into your house, If You Smell This in Your Bedroom, You Might Have Bed Bugs.

You may be returning from those long trips away from home with more than just jet lag to contend with. Nancy Troyano, PhD, BCE, a board-certified entomologist with Western Exterminator, says that bedbugs frequently hitch a ride on luggage, infesting private homes when their owners return.

To avoid this, Troyano recommends opening suitcases far away from upholstered furniture upon entering a hotel. "Check for bed bugs before putting your suitcase [and] inspect your suitcase, luggage, or other items after you travel for any bed bugs," she says. Troyano also recommends running the contents of your suitcase through a dryer cycle on high heat for 15 minutes "to kill any bed bugs that may have hitched a ride home with you."

According to the National Pest Management Association, (NPMA) when purses are placed on furniture or the ground, bed bugs can hitch a ride, nestling unnoticed in seams and pockets until they take up residence in your home. And if you want to know if you need an exterminator, If You See This in Your Yard, Prepare for a Bug Invasion, USDA Says.

The NPMA says that bed bugs can nestle into stuffed animal fur, potentially causing an infestation in any home they're subsequently brought into. If you want to keep this from happening, the association recommends washing and drying stuffed animals on hot when they first come into your home.

Grow Bigger. Grow Better. Say Bye Bugs Company needed help finding their niche target audience: people who wanted to get rid of bed bugs. With this problem, Say Bye Bugs came to Voy Media to first quickly find their targeted audience but also profit from their returns on ad spend. More specifically, they wanted to scale their advertising spend above $30k a month.

Surprisingly, a simple fan is another good way to keep mosquitoes at bay. The pests are notoriously weak fliers, so circulating air can stop the bugs from reaching you. Deputy editor Annemarie Conte likes the rechargeable Geek Aire fan for its portability. Because mosquitoes tend to fly low, Doug recommends keeping a fan at knee level to deter them.

Pill bugs are more closely related to shrimp and lobsters than crickets or butterflies. Their ancestors lived in the sea, but ancient pill bugs crawled out millions of years ago to carve a life for themselves on dry land.

More than half of pest control professionals say they receive the most bed bug complaints during the summer, likely because of increased travel. But while you read news reports about checking your hotel room for bed bugs, hotels and motels are actually the third most common location where exterminators notice these pests. Just 68% of pest professionals reported finding bed bugs there.

The cost of exterminating bed bugs varies depending on the level of infestation and the size of the space involved, according to estimates from HomeAdvisor. Expect to pay an average of $1,000 to $2,500, although you could pay as little as $300.

Scratching the surface of wild tomatoes that bugs don't bother, Cornell University scientists discovered the plants' chemical secret for repelling insect pests: a complex, waxy substance that commercially grown tomatoes have "forgotten" how to make.

A simplified formulation of the wild tomatoes' chemical has been granted a U.S. patent on "Non-cyclic Esters for Pest Control" and could become the next-generation nontoxic insect repellent for a long list of crops on hungry bugs' menu.

In addition to tomatoes, the patented chemical agents are expected to protect a wide range of crop plants and ornamental plants against more than 30 kinds of mites, beetles, leafminer flies and whiteflies, aphids, leafhoppers, mealy bugs, worms and thrips, the Cornell inventors said. And the same insect species that are repelled from eating the plants also are less likely to oviposit (lay eggs), thus breaking a cycle of plant destruction, the scientists added.

Several kinds of stink bugs feed in peach orchards, including consperse stink bug, green stink bug, redshouldered stink bug, Say's stink bug, and Uhler's stink bug. They are not pests in every orchard every year. Outbreaks appear to be cyclical.

The different species of stink bugs all have similar life histories. They overwinter as adults under leaves and trash, in the crowns of plants, and in clumps of grass on the orchard floor. They also may be found outside the orchard in the crowns of plants such as blackberry or in other protected places such as box piles and buildings. After mating, if suitable host plants are not present in the orchard, adults move out of the orchard to suitable host plants. Most of the species remain on weeds and ground cover plants at this time, but the green stink bug may move into the trees.

Adults have shield-shaped bodies that are about 0.5 inch long and either brown or green with red, pink, or yellow markings. Barrel-shaped eggs are laid in clusters of about 14 on leaves of broadleaf plants. Eggs are pearly white when first laid, later turning cream colored or pinkish just before hatching. For consperse stink bugs, a row of spines encircle the top of the eggs; the other species have concentric black rings on top of the eggs. Early nymphal stages have various markings and patterns and no wings but resemble adults in shape. Nymphs develop prominent wing pads in the fourth and fifth instars.

Stink bugs insert their needlelike mouthparts into fruit and feed on plant juices. Initially the feeding sites are small, translucent, blue-green spots. Damaged flesh under the skin later turns into gray or whitish pithy areas. Gum may exude from feeding areas on green peaches. Because frost damage can also cause the peach to exude gum, examine the peach flesh for needlelike stains caused by stink bug feeding. Damaged areas will fail to grow, and fruit attacked early in the season develops irregular, depressed areas or dimples. On nearly ripe fruit, exterior symptoms resemble a bruise and if the fruit is peeled, white corky or pithy areas will be found. One bug may feed on many fruit, thus a rather low population can cause severe damage. On peaches, the damage resembles that caused by peach rust; look for the presence of stink bugs to confirm the cause of the damage.

Monitor fruit beginning in early June every other week. Adult bugs often hide on the opposite side of the limb as they are approached, making them difficult to see. Look for sappy exudate on fruit, blue-green spots, or gum that may exude from feeding sites. Some fruit should also be peeled to detect the presence of white pithy or corky areas, or the trees can be sampled with a beating tray.

Double cone traps that are baited with an aggregation pheromone are also available for monitoring the consperse stink bug but will not attract other species of stink bugs. Place these traps in tree crotches near the orchard's border to detect the presence of adult consperse stink bugs.

Consider treating if damaged fruit is common or if adult bugs are seen. Apply a full coverage spray to trees in affected areas of the orchard. Clean cultivation of orchards in fall will discourage overwintering bugs.

One of the common frustrations of gardening is having to deal with creepy, crawly insects that chew up the leaves of your plants and their fruits once they eventually make them, with bugs such as aphids, snails and mealybugs being some of the notable offenders.

Justin McKeever, a plant specialist at H&H Nursery in Lakewood, said that some of the bugs available for purchase at the nursery include predatory insects that eat the harmful insects in a garden and those include ladybugs, praying mantises, lacewings and beneficial nematodes but his business also sells worms for composting.

They also require a low dose to kill insects. The drawback, however, is that some bed bugs are resistant to these chemicals. In that case, you (or your exterminator) may need to use an alternate insecticide, such as pyrroles like chlorfenapyr, or neonicotinoids, which are synthetic versions of nicotine.

Chemical treatments are effective for minor infestations that are caught early, or for infestations that require spot treatment. These treatments often require one to two follow-up visits to eliminate all bed bugs.

Today, some bed bugs still live with bats in caves, churches and attics in Eastern Europe, says Ondřej Balvín. As an entomologist, he studies insects. In 2012, Balvín and his colleagues at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, studied DNA from bed bugs. They compared DNA from the bugs that still feed on bats to the DNA of bed bugs that feed on people. This helped show how long ago bed bugs switched to dining on us. 041b061a72
