Treatment and prevention of pests of Cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of the inescapable protagonists when we talk about pests. Some urban pests in particular always come to mind. And they do not miss the appointment.

Prevention and treatment:

Once a roach infestation occurs, the problem can be alleviated with various treatments. One of them is the chemical controlSince treatments with predators are usually not very compatible with a domestic area (due to the type of predator: wasps, centipedes, etc.). However, the analysis of the causes and taking corrective action by the FitoStinger team of technicians can reduce the risk of a new infestation.

Biocides and baits are effective in controlling cockroaches and they can destroy their nests.

Characteristics of the pest:

One of the biggest impacts that cockroaches can have is the expansion of a number of harmful bacteria and viruses that can lead to the development of disease. For example: E. Coli, Salmonella, Typhoid Fever, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus, Cholera, Gastroenteritis, Dysentery, and Leprosy.

Cockroaches are one of the insects that they constitute a plague in a very common way. And are among the toughest animals on the planet. Some species are able to stay active for a month without food or survive with very limited resources. Even reaching survive airless for 45 minutes or slow your heartbeat. Sometimes they give the feeling of belonging to another planet. And it is calculated that they carry present on earth at least for 300 million years, according to studies and fossil evidence found.

There is a popular belief that cockroaches will repopulate Earth if humanity were to disappear due to nuclear war. Given the cockroaches have a higher resistance to radiation than vertebrates, with a lethal dose between 6 and 15 times higher than humans.

Due to its resistance, They are one of the most difficult pests to control.

Its body is oval and flattened. The small head is usually protected by a shield shaped pronotum. Small eyes, long, flattened, prickly feet, and chewing mouthparts.

Some species are closely related to housing and They are located in these cases near garbage cans, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in areas with humidity and heat, in the drains or also in the sewers. They live in a wide diversity of environments, but prefer warm conditions inside buildings.

It is estimated that approximately only 20 species of cockroaches among the 3.500 identified species can bother humans.

A national study in the USA. USA (2005) in factors that predispose to asthma in children's studies in inner cities showed that cockroach allergens appear to worsen asthma symptoms more than other known factors.

In Europe 3 types of cockroaches stand out:

  • GERMAN COCKROACH (Blattella germanica)

    Garnet in color with a length of 13 to 16 mm and wings that cover the tip of the abdomen. We can detect them thanks to their droppings: particles like pepper on the wall, near the shelters. They are lovers of warm and humid areas. They prefer kitchens and bathrooms. She likes to get into tight fissures. Her life ranges from 3 to 6 months.

  • feature number two of the urban plague
    ORIENTAL COCKROACH (Blatta orientalis)

    Dark, from reddish brown to black and with a length of 20 to 35 mm. Vestiges of wings in females; short wings in males. Their droppings will be similar to mouse droppings, with a rounded end and a pointed end. They like to live below ground level, in small, damp spaces, basements and drains, between 20 and 29 C, although they are quite tolerant of low temperatures. They live from 4 to 6 months.

  • characteristic number three of the urban plague
    AMERICAN COCKROACH (Periplaneta americana)

    Brown in color, with clear markings on the pronotum, they are the largest, ranging from 28 to 53 mm in length. Only in adults there are wings. In the female of equal length to the abdomen. In the male they extend beyond the tip of the abdomen. We will detect excrements similar to those of the mouse but without a tip and ribbed. It prefers warm, moist basements (optimal between 21-33C) and sewers. Look for food mainly on the first floor. They live from 14 to 15 months.

Treatment and prevention of pests of Bedbugs

Bed bug pests: a big problem for establishments that offer accommodation, but also for individuals. Having become, without a doubt, one of the pests best known to the public. We explain how they are how we treat them.

Prevention and treatment:

Steam treatments:

One of the innovative options for your eradication is the use of steam. This method is an effective tool by being able to remove all stages of bedbugs, including eggs from heat shock.

The use of steam properly and carefully, can eliminate the bugs present in a single treatment.

To achieve good results, a deep knowledge of the pest and its biology is essential, together with a thorough review and meticulous treatment.

The quality of the steam is important, therefore the equipment used must be able to generate it at a high temperature.

Biocide Treatment

Spraying of biocides soluble in water. These treatments require a 12-hour security period.
They are highly effective treatments 100% safe. In some cases a second booster treatment is recommended.

The bed bugs are blood-sucking (they feed on blood, like mosquitoes or blackflies). In this case, almost exclusively human.

Is one of the highly complicated urban pests to eliminate, its appearance occurs in the Bedsboth in of hotels, hostels, rural houses, hostelsetc., as in our own homes.

Their bites you can very annoying And become human disease vectors. Being therefore a potentially dangerous pest.

These insects are oval in shape and small (5 mm) but visible to the naked eye. They are reddish brown in color and their life cycle is divided into three phases: egg, nymph and adult, taking approximately 7 or 10 weeks to pass from their egg phase to that of the adult. Females, under favorable conditions, lay 4 to 5 eggs a day throughout their lives (1 year approx.).

They act at night, and during the day they remain hidden and take refuge in different areas. His favorites are: mattress folds, seams, rugs, curtains ...

The difficulty of detecting their presence is that sometimes their bites can be confused with those of mosquitoes, which is why it is necessary to leave your detection in the hands of professionals. It is important to pay attention to dark spots on the mattress and in nearby areas. Further, cause an unpleasant sweet smell.

  • Blood suckers

    Adult size bedbugs can suck up to 7 times their blood weight in 10 minutes. Also, females lay eggs until they are hungry again.

  • feature number two of the urban plague
    Annoying bites

    The main indicators of a bed bug infestation are bites, hives and skin irritations. The sting begins with an annoying itching and redness of the area, followed by the appearance of hives.

Treatment and prevention of other insect pests

Prevention and treatment:

Each insect requires a specific procedure. To develop the treatments it is essential to identify the species and know its biology and habits. That is why at Fitostinger we have a Biologist with great experience in the field and a staff of Applicators with recognized professional training and accredited experience as Technical Manager.

Other common pests that are usually related to the urban environment are:

Common tick (Ixodes ricinus)

The tick is the largest mite. It belongs to the Ixodidae family and measures approximately 4 to 11 mm longidut. It is characterized by having a dark brown color that changes to lighter tones as it feeds. It mainly parasitizes dogs and cats and adults are preferably located in the ears and in the interdigital spaces.

Common flea (Pulex irritans)

Fleas are wingless insects, with their bodies flattened laterally and 1,5 to 4 mm in length. They are used to having a reddish-black color. Like all insects, their head, thorax and abdomen are well differentiated and have three pairs of legs (the third pair is highly developed and allows them to jump).

Ants
  • number one feature of the urban pest
    Crematogaster Scutellaris

    A strictly arboreal species that nests (does not eat) on dead or live wood. It is distinguished by its coloration, red head and black thorax and abdomen. Although they have a stinger, it is not functional and does not usually sting. It can be found inside houses when logs are burned when they have been colonized during storage outside. They are a natural predator of the stands of the pine processionary.

  • Lasius niger and Lasius alienus

    They are typical garden ants, monomorphic and approximately 4mm in size, the first dark and the second somewhat lighter. They abound in fruit trees or plants with aphids. Sometimes they build shelters for aphids in the form of small accumulations of soil at the base of plants.

  • characteristic number three of the urban plague
    Linephitema humile

    Also known as Argentine Ant. Due to their high density and representing between 10 and 15% of the total animal biomass on the planet, their name diversity and their great adaptability to the environment, ants can become urban pests as a vehicle for disease or invading the interior of the houses forming ant hills.

    From just 3mm the workers, dark, almost harmless, were filtering into other countries first and continents later. Now, they have become a true plague in places as distant as the United States, Europe or Japan. In fact, they are giving real headaches to the health and agricultural authorities in the regions where they live.

  • feature number four of the urban plague
    Pheidole pallidula

    Also called "Big-headed Ant" is a dimorphic species.

    They are omnivorous, yellowish or light brown in color and very nervous movements. Along with the Argentine ant, it is the most frequent in houses in the Mediterranean area, although its effect is less because it has much less populous societies.

Mosquitoes
  • number one feature of the urban pest
    Tiger Mosquito (Aedes albopictus)

    It is a mosquito of small size, of a general dark coloration but with showy bright white ornaments. Differential diagnosis of adults is possible based on a white sagittal line in the center of the chest and the grated appearance of the legs. The larvae are similar to those of other species.

  • Common mosquito (Culex pipiens)

    It is the urban mosquito par excellence, with twilight and night customs and with a marked tendency to penetrate houses. It is closely linked to human activity, since in its larval habitat are wastewater of any kind. In many northern areas it is only considered ornithophilic (it mainly attacks birds), but in Europe its aggressiveness on humans has been quite proven.

Common wasp (Vespula germanica)

Adults have 2 pairs of attached wings, separate thorax and abdomen. They build their wasps with vegetable fibers and place them in burrows, abandoned logs, inside buildings, rocks, roofs and generally where they can.
