New Era Pest Control Fun Facts – Natural Pest Control

Natural Pest Control

Very interesting Natural Pest Control Facts we have learned throughout the years.

  • Carpenter Ants, Bees, and Hornets feed on the excrement of Aphids or “Plant Lice” which are commonly found in your garden in our Miami climate. Carpenter Ant colonies can contain up to 50,000 workers and can destroy your home in a remarkably short period of time.
  • That an adult rat can squeeze into your Miami home through a hole as small as a quarter?
  • Flies deposit thousands of bacteria every time they land? Miami’s own New Era Pest Control can eradicate these pests for you.
  • Be careful to never squash a yellow jacket near its nest. A dying yellow jacket releases an alarm pheromone that calls its comrades to action. Within 15 seconds, yellow jackets within a 15 foot area will rally to the victim’s aid.
  • Did you know that spraying pesticides is the last option at New Era? Our “Miami Go Green” program utilizes the IPM (Integrated Pest Management) method to ensure the safety of your family and pets.
  • A single female Bedbug will lay more than 500 eggs in a few short months causing an infestation to quickly multiply. Bedbugs frequently find their way into your home in your luggage, on your clothing, or in with your personal belongings after vacationing.
  • Ten Percent of the weight of a two year old pillow can be composed of dead Dust Mites and their droppings. A typical used mattress may have anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million mites inside.
  • Rodents may enter your Miami home using a variety of entry points. Once inside, rodents will nest, breed, contaminate your food and your living quarters. Rodents may also be host to a variety of diseases, including Salmonella, and Lyme disease.
  • In the 1960s, animal behavior researchers studied the effects of various substances on spiders. When spiders were fed flies that had been injected with caffeine, they spun very “nervous” webs. When spiders ate flies injected with LSD, they spun webs with wild, abstract patterns. Spiders that were given sedatives fell asleep before completing their webs.
  • What is the largest Insect? In the book Beetles by Bernard Klaustnizer, there is a beetle called the South American longhorn beetle (Tytanus giganteus) that measures 25 cm! The heaviest insect is probably the African goliath beetle (Megasoma elephas), weighing up to 3.4 oz. And the longest insect is a huge stick insect (Pharnacia serritypes). The females can be over 36 cm in length!!
  • Are Daddy Longlegs Spiders? No. Daddy longlegs are in the order Opiliones (spiders are in the order Araneae) and are also known as harvestmen. They have a neat escape mechanism: if something grabs one of their legs, the leg can just break off and the harvestman can run off with the rest of its legs. The legs don’t grow back, though.
  • Termites do more than $750 million worth of damage in the U.S. every year, with much of that damage occurring in Florida. That’s more than all the fires, storms and earthquakes, combined. Protect your Miami Home from these pests before they take it from you.
