The most prominent types of insects in the Las Vegas valley area are termites, silverfish, camel crickets, earwigs and centipedes. Although Senske will perform the removal of a broad range of insects within Southern Nevada, the following are the most common bugs you’ll find inside of your house or business.
Termites are year-around pests that can cause massive amounts of damage to all housing and building structures. They live in moist environments below ground and eat wood products, which could include the drywall and foundation of your house. Termite colonies can have up to 1,000,000 members. In order to completely remove a termite invasion, every single termite needs to be exterminated. If you think you have a termite problem in your house or business, call Senske Pest Control today at (702) 251-5559 or request a free estimate for a termite inspection before termites invade and cause irreparable damage.
Silverfish are nocturnal and live in moist, dark areas like bathrooms and basements. If your house has silverfish, you’ve most-likely come across them on the floor of your bathroom, sink, bathtub or pantry. They feed on starches, paper, clothing, glue and dry cereal, amongst many other food and non-food materials. They are resilient in houses and buildings because they can find food almost anywhere. They can survive without food for up to 1 year.
Although 1 silverfish is not problematic, 1 can turn into 1,000 within a short period of time. Silverfish are tiny and usually only grow to about a quarter or half inch long. They move quickly and are often mistaken for cockroaches. They differentiate from cockroaches in their color- cockroaches are brown and silverfish are gray or silver. Silverfish can live many years and are oftentimes hard to catch. They generally hide in places that are inaccessible for humans to reach. Because silverfish can be nearly impossible to remove, once a house is infested, it’s highly suggested to call a professional exterminator.
Camel crickets, known also as Sprickets (spider crickets) because of their spider-like legs and cricket bodies, are becoming more often seen in basements, garages, and dark, moist areas of houses and buildings. They are crepuscular, which means they are active at dusk. They are scavengers and can find food almost anywhere, including the dirty clothes left by the washer in your basement. Camel crickets can’t fly but they have a mighty jump. Although they look frightening, they are not harmful and won’t bite. Female Camel crickets have a tail that looks similar to a wasp’s stinger on their backend. Don’t be fooled- this is used to lay her eggs and not to sting.
After Camel crickets have started breeding inside of a house, removing them is difficult. Don’t use Raid to exterminate them- there will undoubtedly be crickets that didn’t get sprayed and will continue to live. Although Camel crickets are not harmful, their existence inside of your house will attract bigger predators into your house, including predators such as scorpions and spiders.
Earwigs are nocturnal and live during the day in dark, damp places and cracks. There are more than 20 types of species living in the United States. Depending upon their species, they will be 5 to 25 millimeters long. They can be identified easily by the pincer at the end of their abdomen. Although this pincer is not poisonous and is used to defend themselves against their own species, they can and do sometimes attach themselves to humans with their pincer. They do have wings and some species can fly.
Earwigs do not congregate in a colony or nest together. Because they live alone, it is unusual to have an earwig infestation inside of your house. They will not produce a large nest or hive inside a house like bees or termites. Earwigs generally like the outdoors better than indoors. However, they will be attracted to dark and damp places within your house, like a bathroom or basement.
Centipedes are amongst the strangest looking insects because of their slithering-like bodies and multiple legs. Depending upon the species they can live from 1 to 5 years. They live in dark, moist areas and will oftentimes take up residence around the foundations of houses and buildings. Cracks in the foundation of a building may allow centipedes to wander inside of your house. Although centipedes will not destroy anything within your house, their bite is venomous so you don’t want them creeping around your house- especially if you have small children or pets. Call Senske Pest Control at (702) 251-5559 or request a free estimate to get rid of centipedes.
There is a particular type of centipede that resides solely inside buildings- the House centipede. The House centipede is about an inch long, colored grey and yellow, and has three black stripes on its back. It primarily lives in dark and damp places in a house or building. You’ll most often come in contact with a House centipede living in your basement, bathroom, baseboard or closet.
