Brown Recluse Spider Infographic

Posted by on Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

Brown Recluse spiderThere is much confusion out there among the general public regarding the Brown Recluse spider. Our fearful nature makes us question every spider we encounter in our homes.

“Oh no, is it a Brown Recluse?”

“Well, the spider is brown.”

It’s only reasonable for us to question whether or not a spider we find is indeed a Brown Recluse. After all, these spiders are very dangerous. The Brown Recluse’s venom has been shown to cause necrosis; or a rotting of skin near the bite. A bite starts out as nothing, offering little to no pain, but quickly escalates into serious skin ulcers. Although rare, a bite can cause death.

How do you know if you really have a Brown Recluse problem on your hands?

Bulwark Pest Control has put together the following infographic to help aid the general public in regards to the Brown recluse spider. Learn what the Brown Recluse spider looks like, where in the United States they are found, and what to do if you are ever bit.

Austin Bats In Danger?

Posted by on Thursday, 15 August, 2013

English: Emergence of the bats of the Congress...

Every year some 100,000 plus people visit Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge to witness one of nature’s marvels. During summer evenings, upwards of 1.5 million bats emerge from the crevices of the bridge, almost like a black cloud, to feed on millions of insects. It’s a spectacular site that generates $10 Million in tourism revenue each year.

This summer it was confirmed by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services that the deadly White-Nose Syndrome (WNS) has made its way to Texas. This devastating and deadly disease afflicts hibernating bats by covering them with a white fungus, awaking them from hibernation and causing them to die from starvation. In other areas of the United States, over 95 percent of the bat populations have been wiped out because of WNS.

With White-Nose Syndrome now in Texas, are the Austin bats in danger?

White-Nose Syndrome: Are Austin Bats In Danger?

At this time, White-Nose Syndrome is not believed to affect Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge bats. The reason being is that WNS has only been shown to affect hibernating bats. The bats at Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge are Mexican free-tailed bats; bats that do not hibernate and that are active year-round. It’s important to note that the full potential impact of WNS on Mexican free-tailed bats, and all bats in Texas, is still unknown.

Scientists do fear for other bat species in Texas. The deadly WNS can be spread bat-to-bat. Mexican Free-tailed bats do share their winter and summer ranges with many hibernating species, including the Cave Myotis bat and little brown bat. Biologists fear that migrating Mexican free-tails, even if they are not themselves afflicted by the disease, may prove to be carriers that spread the fungus that’s linked to White-nose Syndrome.

If this is truly the case and migrating bats can spread WNS to other species of bat throughout North America, then the results may be catastrophic; for both bats and humans alike. A single colony of bats will eat nearly 1.5 million pest insects a year; pests that destroy agricultural farming.

Please continue to get out to Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin, and marvel at the amazing bats. There are plenty of spots along Lady Bird Lake, in the surrounding area of Congress Avenue, where you can watch the bats. Flights normally begin about 8:00 pm, and may last upwards of 45 minutes.

Bat with White-nose Syndrome

White-Nose Syndrome

One of the fastest declines in North American wildlife happens to come at the expense of the bat. It’s all because of White-Nose Syndrome. First discovered in New York back in 2006, WNS had spread to 28 different states, including Texas.

White-Nose Syndrome causes a fatal white fungus to grow on a bat’s bodies (the nose in particular) as they hibernate in caves for the winter. The fungus causes the hibernating bats to wake during the winter months. When awake, the bats will burn up all of their energy reserves that are usually saved when they hibernate. Due to lack of energy and nutrition, the affected bats ultimately die of starvation. Additionally, if the fungus reaches a bat’s wings, it interferes with flying, feeding, body temperature, and blood pressure.

As a result of WNS, it’s believed that upwards of 10 million bats will have died by the end of this hibernation; across all affected states and providences in North America. There is currently no cure for WNS.

 What Can Be Done To Prevent WNS In Texas?

We know for a fact, WNS can be spread from bat-to-bat, but it is also believed that humans can aid the spread of the fungus. After spelunking and exploring caves in Texas, take great precautions to decontaminate yourself, and all your equipment, before entering any new caves. Decontamination protocols can be found at whitenosesyndrome.org.

While exploring caves for entertainment, it is in poor taste to touch any bat you see. Doing so can further result in the spread of WNS; not to mention, bats can also carry other diseases like rabies.

While exploring caves in Texas, report any large-scale bat mortalities to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Division, especially those that occur during the winter months. The kills and spills team can be reached 24-hours a day at (512-389-4848).

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services has also joined in on the WNS fight, awarding a grant of $39,566 to the state of Texas for WNS research.

Crazy Ants Driving Out Austin Fire Ants

Posted by on Monday, 8 July, 2013

I recently wrote an article about Rasberry Crazy ants, and how they are spreading throughout much of the state of Texas. According to a recent report out of The University of Texas At Austin, the spreading of this invasive ant species has also lead to them driving out other species of ants, including the Red Imported Fire ants.

Ants on raspberriesAustin Fire Ants Driven Out By Rasberry Crazy Ants

If you live in Austin, TX you have become well acquainted with the Red Imported Fire ant. These ants are unmistakable, because of their very painful stings, and the massive mounds they build in your yard. Residents know to keep away from these mounds, or you’ll be sorry.

However, there is a new pest invader taking the place of the Fire ants in Austin. It’s an ant that some people hate even more than the Fire ant. The ant I am referring to is the Rasberry (not raspberry) Crazy ant.

According to a recent report, the “ecologically dominant” crazy ants are reducing diversity and abundance of many ant species in Texas, including the dreaded Fire ants. Areas in Austin are seeing very few fire ants in areas heavily infested with Crazy ants because the ants outcompete for the necessary resources needed for survival. Essentially, they monopolize food sources and starve out other ant species.

Even in region of Texas where the Crazy ant population is less intense, Fire ant numbers were considerably reduced. Other ant species, particularly native species, were also eliminated or diminished.

What’s So Bad About Austin Crazy Ants?

Many Austin residents are becoming so fed up with the destructive Crazy ants, that they wish they had the stinging Fire ants back! This sentiment is primarily because of three different reasons.

1) Crazy ants infest in huge numbers. They quickly outnumber other species of ants because they multiply very rapidly. In fact, they can attain densities up to 100 times greater than all other species of ants in a single area combined. Some residents report having to sweep out the Crazy ants with a broom and dustpan daily… Dustpans full of ants!

2) The Crazy ants are very destructive. They go everywhere, invading homes and nesting inside your walls, attics, and crawlspaces. They are notorious for damaging electrical equipment by swarming inside appliances. These ants are drawn to electrical currents, chewing through electric wiring. These actions cause stop lights, air conditioners, and other electrical equipment to short circuit; resulting in expensive repairs.

3) Crazy ants are tough to eliminate. Since Crazy ants don’t eat the same poison baits as other ants do, they are very difficult to control. Pest control for fire ants differs greatly from pest control for crazy ants.

Hands In Ant NestCharacteristics of Rasberry Crazy Ants

Rasberry Crazy ants measure about 1/8 of an inch long. They are a reddish-brown color, with long slender bodies and anteneea. They are also covered in fine hairs or fuzz that makes them appear less glossy than other ant species.

The Rasberry Crazy ant was named after an exterminator, Tom Rasberry, who discovered the ant in nearby Houston. They are also referred to as tawny ants, or simply Crazy ants. They earned the nickname “crazy” because of their crazy, rapid, nonlinear movements.

Killer Bees Swarm Killing Texas Farmer

Posted by on Monday, 3 June, 2013

Killer Bee Swarm

Imagine working on a tractor, when you happen to disturb a nest of bees. Before you know it, thousands of these bees swarm and vigorously sting you as you work– Too many times to count.

That’s exactly what happened to 62 year old Larry Goodwin of Moody, TX.

Last Saturday (June 1, 2013) while driving his tractor, clearing away some brush and debris from a friend’s property, Goodwin bumped a huge hive of Africanized “Killer” Bees nesting in an old chicken coop. Some 40,000 angry Killer Bees poured out of their nest and aggressively and violently swarmed; stinging Goodwin thousands of times.

The neighbors, whose property Goodwin was helping to clear, rushed to his aid and were stung an estimated 100 times as well. Unfortunately, it was too late as Goodwin succumbed to the bee stings and was killed.

The farmer, Goodwin, was pronounced dead at the scene. One of the women who had assisted the famer as he was attacked by the Killer Bees is currently hospitalized in serious condition.

Killer Bees In Texas

Killer bees have been a huge problem in Texas,  so much so that killer bee exterminators in Texas are contemplating leaving the business. As the story indicated, these bees are a growing concern, and are very dangerous.

The above story comes to us just a few months after emergency crews were called out, after thousands of the bees swarmed inside a family’s home in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Africanized “Killer” Bees, common throughout the Southwest, are migrating north at a rate of 100-300 miles per year. They are now widespread throughout most of the state of Texas, including the cities of Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. Swarms have been reported in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, (Southern) California, and (Southern) Utah.

Africanized honeybees, also know as “killer bees,” are a hybrid of honeybees from Europe and southern Africa. In 1957, the hybrid bee was accidentally released in Brazil by a beekeeper. They have been migrating North ever since.

Honey Bee Looking Right At You

Africanized “Killer” Bees

There is no distinguishable appearance that one can use discern Killer Bees from other bee species. They look the same to the naked eye. Killer Bees do pose one very unfortunate characteristic though… They are extremely aggressive. In fact, they are ten times more likely to initiate an attack or sting, compared to a common honeybee. These bees are easily provoked, quick to swarm, attack in greater numbers, and pursue their victims for greater distances.

When disturbed, a queen Killer Bee will release a pheromone signaling to the other bees that something is wrong. The entire nest of Killer Bees will empty; as opposed to European honey bees that release only ten percent of the worker bees to check out a problem.

Pest Control In Austin

If you have a bee hive near or around your Austin, TX home or property, DO NOT DISTURB IT. Instead, please contact an Austin bee removal specialist. An Austin exterminator can safely determine if the bees are indeed Africanized and need to be killed. If they are common honey bees, they can be removed and placed someplace away from people.

Rasberry Ants Spreading Through Texas

Posted by on Wednesday, 10 April, 2013
Rasberry Ant

Rasberry Ant

The Crazy Rasberry ant (not raspberry), also called the Tawny Crazy ant has increasingly become a harmful pest to many Texas homeowners. Rasberry ants can be both destructive, and dangerous. Here’s what you need to know:

Rasberry Ants Spreading Throughout Texas

Rasberry ants were first found in Houston, TX by exterminator Tom Rasberry; in which the ant was named. Since their discovery about eleven years ago (2002), the Rasberry ant has spread to 24 different counties in the state of Texas, including Austin’s Travis country. Other counties experiencing raspberry ant infestation include: Bexar, Brazoria, Brazos, Comal, Cameron, Fort Bend, Chambers, Galveston, Hardin, Harris, Hidalgo, Jefferson, Jim Hogg, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Nueces, Polk, Orange, Victoria, Walker, Wharton and Williamson counties.

The largest Rasberry ant infestations have been found in southeast Harris County, including Houston, La Porte, San Jacinto Port, Pasadena, Deer Park, Seabrook, Friendswood, and Pearland.

Rasberry ants continue to spread at a rate of about five miles per year. Often times they are unknowingly transported by vehicles, animals, and other people. Preferring the hot, humid weather, they can now be found in Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Mississippi.

Identifying Rasberry Ants

Rasberry ants are about 1/8 of an inch long, and reddish-brown in color. They are a slender looking ant with long antennae, long abdomens, and long legs. Rasberry ants are also described as being “hairy,” because they are covered with reddish-brown fuzz. They do not look glossy, like other ants, because of these body hairs.

Crazy Rasberry ants are from the Crazy ant group Paratrechina. These ants are well known for their rapid, erratic, non-linear movements. It’s almost humorous watching these ants move across the pavement. They look lost and confused. One thing that is not humorous about these ants is the destruction and danger they can cause.

Rasberry Ants Are Destructive & Dangerous

Rasberry ants are very destructive by nature. They are naturally attracted to electrical currents, causing them to fail by clogging up the switching mechanisms. These ants are frequently known to short out air conditioning units and even stop lights. There have been reports of Rasberry ants causing several thousand dollars in damage to Texas homeowners and businesses.

On top of being rather destructive, Rasberry ants are also dangerous. When a Crazy Rasberry ant is killed, a pheromone is released from its abdomen that signals other ants to respond. The other Rasberry ants respond all right, in huge numbers; attacking the threat. Just know that if you attempt to kill a few thousand Rasberry ants, millions more will show up to their funeral.

Austin Rasberry Ant Control

Travis County, TX has some pockets of Rasberry ant infestations. These infestations make it uncomfortable for residents to enjoy time in their yards. Very aggravating!

Unfortunately, there are no effective over-the-counter products that consumers can buy to successfully treat Rasberry ants. The good news is that an Austin ant control professional can help you with any ant problem, including Rasberry ants. Get help today!

The Impact Of Fire Ants In Austin Texas

Posted by on Thursday, 14 March, 2013

 

Red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta ). P...

Since their arrival in the late 1930’s, Austin, Texas residents have been battling the Red Imported Fire ant. In terms of human health, property damage, and environmental damage; very few insects can hold a candle to the Fire Ant. Quite frankly, the Red Imported Fire ant is the worst pest in Texas… And the resident’s of Austin know it!

Fire Ants In Austin, TX

Because of their aggressiveness, it’s not hard to mistake a Fire Ant. These ants are a reddish-brown, and can reach up to ¼ of an inch in length. Their mounds are huge, and identifiable. One of these mounds can house multiple queens, and some 250,000 workers. Texas officials have reported as many as 200 of these mounds in a single acre. The thought of the sheer number of these malevolent ants is frightening.

Another frightening thought is that Red Imported Fire ant stings have caused some 100+ deaths. While dying from a Fire Ant sting is unlikely, it can happen if a victim suffers from insect allergies; sending the injured party into anaphylactic shock. The most common side effects of a Red Imported Fire ant sting are: pain, swelling, itching, redness, dizziness, disorientation, and vomiting.

Bulwark Pest Control technicians in Austin, TX report that Fire Ants are one of the most frequently called about pests. Their impact is significant.

 The Impact Of Fire Ants In Austin Texas

On top of their painful stings, Red imported Fire ants also cause relentless damage to property. Extending out several feet in diameter, and reaching depths of almost eight feet, Fire Ant mounds damage plants and crops. These mounds are also an eyesore. When a mound is disturbed, fire ant workers pour out of their mound and aggressively attack the offender.

Red Imported Fire ants are also fascinated with electrical equipment and electrical wiring. In fact, the leading cause of traffic light malfunctions in Austin happens to be shortages caused by Fire Ants. These ants are also drawn to air conditioners, water meter boxes, and gas boxes.

In the state of Texas, Red Imported Fire ants cause more than $140 million in damage annually.

In the U.S., the FDA estimates more than $5 billion is spent each year on medical treatment, damage, and control of Fire Ant infested areas.

How To Best Eliminate Fire Ants

One of the most challenging property pests to completely exterminate is the Fire Ant. If a homeowner opts for a single ant treatment; many of the ants will die off, but the problem will not be solved. The same can be said with using aerosol pesticides you can buy at a local hardware store. The reason these attempts are not effective is because the Fire Ants will divide themselves after a treatment. They simply wait out the pesticide, the return when its potency dissipates.

Instead, homeowners who are experiencing Fire Ants need continual treatments and ant control strategies to control these malevolent pests. A two-step strategy of applying baits, and following up with direct mound pesticide treatments, has proven to be effective if the treatments are consistent.

Happy Valentine’s Day From Bulwark Exterminating

Posted by on Monday, 11 February, 2013

There are a few more days left until Valentine’s Day, so you either have time to finish your purchases for your loved one, or you still have time to start your purchases. There is quite a bit to do here in Austin, with lots of food choices for every appetite. We thought we’d help you out a little and give you our best recommendations.

Japanese and Sushi. Looking for someplace a little more exotic than an Italian restaurant on Valentine’s Day? Try Uchi down on Lamar Blvd. Uchi takes gourmet sushi to the extreme and was recently named the people’s #1 favorite of 2012 in The Austin Chronicle.

Mexican. Trying to find somewhere a little fancy but just as tasty? If you and your compañera are in the mood for some quality Mexican food, then head to La Condesa. Their unique platters add that extra touch of flavor that will sure to guarantee satisfaction. Our recommendation? Get the Carne Asada. Their wood-grilled steak is seasoned just right and the true mark of any Mexican restaurant lies in the strength of their asada.

Italian. There are the kinds of Italian restaurants you see you in movies. The kind you need a coat and tie for. The waiters walk around real slow for some strange reason. And you absolutely have to speak to your date in a hushed whisper, because even a normal talking voice could be heard four tables down the isle. And there’s Vespaio. They describe themselves at “lively and sociable”, and that’s exactly what you’ll find. It’s a great atmosphere to dine on great food. Their pastas are handmade and rich in flavor. Their wood-fired pizzas are spot on.

If you’re the DIY-kind-of-person, then you might choose to fix something at home. That’s fine too, just don’t let something like this ruin your night.

Bulwark is great – I’ve been using them for 3 years. They come by when they say, they do their job, and the few times that new insects have invaded (I had a couple of ant colonies make their home just outside of the perimeter), Bulwark was happy to come back and take care of them. Their techs are professionals through and through.

Aurelio “Ledo” Montes was my new tech today and I was extremely pleased! As a long time Bulwark customer (12+ years), he knew the specific treatment plan for my yard and was very accommodating. He listened to all my new issues and addressed each one as if they were his own. He was prompt, thorough, and very personable. Thank You, Bulwark for sending such a professional. I would love to have “Ledo” on all future calls!

- Sherri H.
Austin, TX

Mason just left our house after being here almost two hours for our initial treatment. A kind, friendly young man who took his time and was very thorough in treating our home for the current problems we are having. I look forward to working with Bulwark in the future. Thank you!

- Olga L.
Round Rock, TX

We’ve used them (Bulwark) for four years now, and they come every other month. They are always timely, always take their shoes off when entering the house, and always are professional, mature and friendly–never in a hurry. I even recently called another exterminator who my sister uses (she says he’s cute) to get an estimate, and when I told him what we currently pay Bulwark; he said that he could not beat their price.
