Bed Bug

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs have extraordinarily small bodies with a brown camouflage, they lay eggs everywhere, and are easily transferred, allowing them to infest entire homes and businesses. Bed bugs, often found in mattresses, bedding, clothing, furniture, and more can be recognized by the musty odor they exude, the brown and black spots on infected surfaces, blood stains on mattresses and bedding from crushed bed bugs, or their bite marks. Bed bug bites emit a burning sensation and generally are several red marks in a precise line.

Ant

Ants

Carpenter ants are only one species of ants which could infest your home or business. They have large black bodies and typically nest in wood able to retain moisture and easily accessible from the soil like wood porch structures, window frames, and door frames. You have an infestation if you see swarms of flying ants in the spring around wood structures, these are the adult ants leaving the nest to find new territory. Another sign of a carpenter ant infestation is wood dust or small piles of wood shavings found close to older damp wood.

Cockroach

Roach

The American cockroach is the largest species of cockroaches invading homes. They have a reddish brown or mahogany color with a yellow band outlining the area behind their head. Found anywhere food or moisture is present, these cockroaches are about two inches long and both the females and males can fly. They give off a musty smell and as they mature become more reddish brown. These cockroaches will hide in damp dark places.

Wasp

Wasp

There are many species of wasps, ranging from microscopic to 1 ½” in size and ranging in color from black to metallic blues and greens and from reddish-brown to dark red and orange. Most wasps have a pinched waist and two pairs of wings. Wasps will nest in several places surrounding your home including hose reels, electrical boxes, soffits, decks, in the corners of windows, under awnings and porches, attics, crawl spaces, and gas grills. If you have a colony of wasps, there could be thousands of wasps living in the nest.

Mice, Chipmunk & Rat

Rodent

Rodents are among the most adaptable and diseased critters to infest homes. They are extremely difficult to exterminate due to their rapid and constant breeding habits. Several species of rodents have the capability to squeeze into spaces much smaller than themselves, making even the smallest holes or cracks entrances to your home. Like many unwanted pests, rodents will cause severe damage to your home or business, excessive chewing and breeding will take a toll on your home’s structure.

Bee, Wasp, & Hornet Stings

Allergic Reactions to Stings

Unless you’ve gone in for testing or have already found out the hard way, probably, you don’t know whether you’re allergic to bee stings. If a person who is allergic to bees, wasps, or hornets gets stung, the first thing you should do is call 911. The situation is an emergency.

Signs & Symptoms of Anaphylaxis

  • Wheezing
  • ItchingEpi Pen Injector
  • Hives or rash
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty swallowing and/or breathing
  • Immediate swelling of the eyes, lips, tongue, and throat
  • Cramps
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea

If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the above symptoms after being stung by a bee, wasp, or hornet, call 911 now.

Inject the person with an epinephrine shot if they cannot do it themselves.

How to Inject Epinephrine:

  1. Remove the caps from both ends of the injector.
  2. Hold the injector, with the needle-end pointing toward you, against your thigh.
  3. Press hard, making sure the needle goes into your thigh, and hold the injector in place for 10 seconds.
  4. Remove the injector.
  5. If the needle is exposed, you received the injection. Repeat steps 2 and 3 if the needle is not visible.

After you’ve administered the injection, go straight to the emergency room or urgent care clinic. Medical attention is still necessary.

Bee, Wasp, & Hornet Stings without Severe Allergies

Don’t panic if you get stung. After receiving a sting, it is natural to feel pain, which will most likely be accompanied by other signs and symptoms, including:

 
  • Itching and burning
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness

It may be easy to mistake a normal sting’s initial swelling and the beginning stages of anaphylaxis. The itching, redness, and pain don’t make distinguishing the difference any easier. If it’s your first time being stung, watch the area closely. If the symptoms of anaphylaxis do not manifest, there is no need to call 911 or inject epinephrine.

How to Treat Bee, Wasp, or Hornet Stings

  1. Remove the stinger, being careful to avoid squeezing it, which could release more venom.
  2. Use a cold compress to control the swelling.
  3. Take acetaminophen—if you want—to control the pain, and an antihistamine—if you want—to reduce the itching.

Treating the sting in your moment of pain is the hard part. Here’s the easy part:
