What Nashville Property Owners Ought To Know About Brown Recluse Spider Treatments

All spiders have fangs, and all spiders have venom, but there are only two spiders in the United States that are considered to be a serious medical threat. You can probably name them. They are both infamous. Today, we’re going to forego talking about black widow spiders and focus our attention on the spider that is most often called a brown recluse, though it has many names. You might call them violin spiders, fiddleback spiders, or just plain old brown spiders. When these spiders appear in your Nashville home, it is likely that you will want them out, at all costs. They have the potential to cause a serious wound. Here’s how our service team members work to get control of this pest threat.

Inspection

The first step is to determine the level of infestation. Your service professional will look for areas that are conducive to brown recluse activity, check for webs, and track down other evidence. From this inspection, a treatment plan will be developed.

Treatments

There are many treatment options for eliminating brown recluse spiders inside your home. One of the most common is an application of dust inside wall voids to eliminate the spiders hiding in voids. This requires moving furniture around and taking wall plates off, but don’t worry, your service professional will put those items back after the treatment.

Monitoring

Brown recluse control is a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. Your service professional will apply glue boards in strategic locations to monitor brown recluse activity and ensure that the treatments are getting the job done.

Perimeter Protection

When addressing a brown recluse infestation, it is important to treat the outside of your home. Perimeter treatments work to keep new spiders from coming in and replacing the spiders that are eliminated, and it helps to prevent future infestations from taking root. Your perimeter is the most important area for pest control. This area includes your exterior walls, foundation walls, landscaping, garage door seal, voids underneath structures, etc. When your perimeter is properly treated with EPA approved products, those treatments will work to repel and eliminate pests before they get into your home. Our Brown Recluse Spider Reduction plans cover over 47 different pests, not just spiders. Why? Because one of the best ways to reduce brown recluse spiders is to remove the food they eat, which are all of those insects crawling around the outside of your Nashville home.

Spider Bite Prevention

As we work to eliminate spiders in your home and prevent more spiders from getting in, we help you prevent bites by offering guidance in brown recluse spider bite prevention.

  • Keep clothing off the floor.

  • Remove skirts from beds.

  • Make sure bedding doesn’t touch the floor.

  • Remove clutter from rooms.

  • Vacuum under furniture regularly.

  • Shake shoes and clothing before wearing them.

  • Carefully inspect items taken out of storage.

  • Don’t miss any of your scheduled appointments for service.

If you are bitten, apply ice to the bite wound and seek medical attention. Brown recluse spider bites often have an ulcer or blister in the center. This will help you recognize them if you didn’t see the spider when it bit you.

Again, keep in mind that brown recluse spider reduction is an ongoing service of constant pest protection. It isn’t a quick fix. Anyone who tells you that it is should not be trusted.

The Trick To Keeping Carpenter Bees & Wasps Away From Your Hendersonville Property

In our Hendersonville service area, there are a few stinging insects we commonly see on the properties we treat: yellow jackets, paper wasps, mud daubers, and carpenter bees. Yellow jackets and paper wasps are social insects that can swarm in defense of their nests. Mud daubers are solitary wasps that aren’t as dangerous as social wasps, but they can still ruin your day if you accidentally sit on one or lay your hand on one. Carpenter bees present a low threat in terms of stinging you, but they can damage your property which makes them unwelcome guests. As we move into the peak of the season for stinging insects, it is important that you be aware of some of the ways you can keep these pests away from your home and, more importantly, deter them from creating nests on your property.

Remove Standing Water

Water is one of the building blocks of life. If you have puddles or containers that have captured rainwater, stinging insects will take notice. Remove containers from your yard. Make sure your gutters are clear of obstructions. Fix any plumbing or spigot leaks, and apply similar maintenance to address other moisture problems.

Paint

Carpenter bees bore into wood to establish their nests. If you have a deck, patio, fence, or some other exterior wooden structure that is unpainted, consider putting a coat of paint on it to keep carpenter bees out. Stain is not effective against carpenter bees. Paint works because it prevents carpenter bees from recognizing the wood when they cling to the surface.

Seal Entry Points

Yellow jackets are prone to creating nests in voids. When they come into your yard, they’ll be looking for ground holes and other voids to create nests. If you give them one, they may decide to set down roots. You can deter them by filling in ground holes and by sealing entry points that might allow them to get into the voids within your shed, garage, or home. Sealing entry points will also help to deter carpenter bees from getting into the voids of structures and finding wood to bore into.

Botanicals

When mud daubers come into your yard looking for a spot to establish a nest, they’ll look for sheltered locations. If you find a spot where mud daubers are starting to create nests, or you have a vulnerable area, such as underneath your deck, you can try applying a botanical product that has citronella or eucalyptus oil to make the mud daubers go away.

Bugs

Wasps eat sweets and meats. When they’re not getting nectar from flowers, they’re hunting for sources of protein. If you have a lot of bugs in your yard, you’ll give wasps more reason to come into your yard and establish a nest. Reduce bugs to reduce wasps.

Keep Your Trash Protected

Wasps can find sweets and meats inside open trash. Make sure that your trash receptacles have covers. This is particularly helpful for keeping yellow jackets away.

Lights

Wasps are drawn to lights. Remove this attractant by keeping the lights off at night, where it is not a security concern. You may also consider drawing the curtains to keep the interior light from leaking out. This helps to reduce many insects, not just wasps.

The Best Protection

It pays to have routine inspections and routine treatments from a licensed service professional. At All-American Pest Control, we help homeowners reduce bugs on their properties, which reduces the food source wasps are looking for. We find nests early and remove them. And we provide ongoing, essential services to repel and eliminate a wide range of pests. Learn more by reaching out to us today. Now is the right time to get your residential pest control plan in place. We can help you find the best fit for your budget and your specific needs.

Brentwood's Complete Guide To The Dangers Of Ticks

There are fifteen species of ticks found in Tennessee. The ticks that are common to our Brentwood service area are the American dog tick, the brown dog tick, and the Lonestar tick. Each of these tick species presents unique threats to our pets and to our health. We’re also learning that there is another dangerous tick that has entered our area: The Asian longhorn tick. Let’s take a look at these ticks and break down what you need to know most.

Asian Longhorn Tick

This tick species was first spotted in New Jersey in 2017. It hasn’t been here long. But it is quickly becoming a serious concern. Outside the United States, Asian longhorn ticks are known to spread ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan virus, and Japanese spotted fever. They are best known for transmitting severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome, referred to as SFTS. SFTS is a deadly disease that has been found to be fatal in fifteen percent of patients. This tick is currently a serious livestock pest, but its ability to impact human health is being watched carefully.

Brown Dog Tick

This tick species presents a unique threat in that it is the only tick that can complete its entire life cycle indoors. Once it gets in, it can stay in. Fortunately, it prefers to bite domesticated canines, which can lower its overall level of threat. But you should keep in mind that the brown dog tick is a risk for the spread of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, which can be fatal.

American Dog Tick

This is another tick species that prefers to bite domesticated canines but it does not survive well indoors. If your furry family member brings American dog ticks into your home, those ticks can bite when you come in close contact with them. If you are bitten by an American dog tick, the risk of Rocky Mountain spotted fever is high. The American dog tick is considered the primary vector for this disease. You can also contract tularemia or develop tick paralysis. The American dog tick gets its name from the fact that it is only found in America. Lucky us.

Lone Star Tick

This tick species is the big boy on the block. It is known to spread several diseases, including ehrlichiosis, tularemia, Bourbon virus, Heartland virus, Alpha Gal Syndrome, and southern tick-associated rash illness (STARI). If this isn’t bad enough, Lone Star ticks can be found in large numbers within vegetation, and they readily bite humans. Fortunately, bites are from seed ticks, which have not yet contracted diseases from animal reservoirs. Keep this in mind when you find your son or daughter covered with specks that you realize, to your horror, are tiny little ticks. It is wise, however, to seek medical attention to be sure illness has not been transmitted.

How To Mitigate The Threat Of Tickborne Illnesses

There are many things you can do to protect yourself and everyone else in your Brentwood home. We’ll break these down into threat categories.

Personal Prevention

  • Make sure your pets have collars and other tick-prevention products prescribed by your vet.

  • Wear mosquito repellent on your legs and feet when going for walks in nature.

  • Avoid tall grass.

  • Do a tick check when you come back inside. Early removal is key to disease prevention.

  • Wear bright colors so you can see ticks crawling up.

Tick Reduction

  • Reduce moisture around your home.

  • Reduce wildlife traffic and harborage options.

  • Seal potential entry points mice or rats might use to get in.

Tick Control

Invest in Stinging & Biting Insect Yard Treatments from All-American Pest Control. This service includes granule applications and mist applications which are applied to key locations on your property and work to get control of ticks, fleas, chiggers, and fire ants.

Meet Our 2020 Hometown Hero Award Recipient

We are so proud to introduce you to our 2020 Hometown Hero Award recipient, Susan Landfield. Susan is a nurse and working mom who was nominated by her husband for her selflessness in the way she continually gives of her time and talents to help her neighbors in Old Hickory Village—especially through COVID-19. 

“This honor has been such a wonderful surprise,” said Susan. “While I don’t think of myself as a hero, I’m grateful and hope others are inspired to show acts of kindness in their own neighborhoods.”

While there were so many worthy nominations, Susan stood out as a humble unsung hero through the pandemic and beyond.

“Susan embodies what it means to be Hometown Hero,” said All-American Pest Control President Erin Richardson. “Serving as a nurse and being a mom to her 3-year-old son takes a lot of energy, but she has continued to find ways to go above and beyond to bring comfort and peace of mind to others—from making sure those who couldn’t shop for themselves had groceries to arranging porch deliveries of hand sanitizer. She represents so many other working moms and essential workers who are juggling a great deal yet continuing to give. We’re proud to recognize such a deserving Middle Tennessean with this year’s Hometown Hero Award.” 

To celebrate Susan, All-American held a social distancing parade through her neighborhood before presenting her with an honorary certificate and 10 years of free pest control—ant, spider, tick and termite protection, mosquito reduction and yard treatment services. 

hometown hero 2020

After selecting Susan as a finalist, we learned that she was recently diagnosed with Alpha-Gal Syndrome, a tick-born illness that causes an allergy to meat from hooved animals. 

It means so much to us at All-American that we get to help protect Susan and her family from ticks and other pests as she’s made it a priority to serve and protect her family, friends and neighbors. 

Thank you to Susan and all of the other great nominees for your dedicated commitment to our community. We enjoyed reading your stories, and we look forward to honoring another Hometown Hero next year.
