Dry wood Termites swarming across Southwest Florida could cost thousands of dollars in damage – Fox 4

Posted: May 13, 2021 at 1:50 am

CAPE CORAL, Fla. Mothers day is right around the corner but, Dry wood Termites are surely not the gift moms are looking for.

We like to call these Dry wood Termites the Mother's Day termites because they do typically swarm around this time of year so people commonly think of them around Mother's Day coming out, said Anna Wallace, Branch Manager with Truly Nolen Pest Control, Cape Coral.

However, the termites are swarming around Southwest Florida.

The humidity has increased which you can notice outside, and thats what actually causes the termites to swarm. When they sense that change in the weather and the higher humidity coming about, the queen termite says, alright little guys it's time to swarm and go find a new home, said Wallace.

On the other hand, the termites are looking for a new home, that could potentially be yours.

Here in Cape Coral, most houses have about a quarter acre lot and one important fact to keep in mind is that, termite colonies on an average acre in Florida you can have 3-5 termite colonies living on that acre. About 1 in 7 houses in the state of Florida will end up with termites, which of course protecting your investment is very critical. Unfortunately, when you do finally notice the damage it's usually about the $8,000 level. Keep in mind with that kind of cost involved we are in a very hot market with building and selling homes, and so when you think about the rising cost of lumber thats really important and critical to consider, said Wallace.

Anna Wallace with Truly Nolen Pest Control says it's important to start preventative measures right away.

If you see flying bugs with wings all of sudden going around your house or right outside of your house its critical that you call a professional to have it inspected and dealt with whatever may be found. So there are products that can be treated on the wood in order to prevent termites from getting into the wood and even if they do they will die from eating the treatment afterward. Call a professional, get it inspected and protect your investment in the long run, said Wallace.

Brood X cicadas: What it’s like in pest control when billions of bugs emerge – CNET

Posted: at 1:51 am

Cicadas are about to emerge in 15 states and DC.

In 2004, Frank Meek was standing in line at an airport in Ohio. At the time, Meek was a technical and training director for pest control company Orkin, and he'd just completed a pest-related project at a poultry farm. He was about to fly home to Atlanta when a Transportation Security Administration agent pulled him aside. He had three cicadas stuck to his back.

"There's the bug guy being called out inside the airport for carrying live insects ... he had no idea about," says Meek, now technical services manager for Orkin. He was remembering the last time the group of cicadas known as Brood X emerged from their 17-year, underground hideouts and were so ubiquitous that a short walk into the airport resulted in three cicada hitchhikers on his back. Periodical cicadas spend the majority of their lives underground and emerge every 13 or 17 years, depending on the brood, for a mating frenzy that's hard to ignore.

From the lab to your inbox. Get the latest science stories from CNET every week.

As Brood X gets ready to emerge in 15 eastern US states and Washington, DC, the billions of cicadas seeking mates, getting busy and laying eggs can cause something of a stunning visual and auditory ruckus for a few weeks. For someone like Meek, a board-certified entomologist and bug fan, it's all pretty rad. Having worked in the pest control industry since the '80s, though, he's learned that when a brood of periodical cicadas hits, not everyone is as thrilled, and sometimes folks turn to their local pest control professionals to do something about it.

"There is a predisposition for people to react to insects with fear or disgust," says Jim Fredericks, chief entomologist for the National Pest Management Association, a trade association for the pest management industry. That reaction's not always unfounded -- termites can damage structures and cockroaches have been linked with asthma. Certain pests live up to the name.

During the Brood X emergence 17 years ago, Fredericks was working at a pest control company in Baltimore and vividly remembers the calls from concerned clients. The thing is, cicadas don't bite, sting or cause damage, aside from possibly harming some young trees when the females lay copious amounts of eggs in the branches. So when people call for help, Fredericks says, those in pest control are largely in the position of educating clients about why the pest pros aren't going to show up and spray down their yard with pesticide.

Jim Fredericks, chief entomologist for the National Pest Management Association

To an extent, education is always a key part of pest control. For instance, Fredericks says part of getting a handle on an ant invasion is talking to the client about preventative measures, like not leaving food out.

Meek remembers learning the lesson about education himself. He started in the business in 1986, a year before another Brood X appearance. He was in sales, and his job was to go into residential areas and get people to use pest control services.

"I remember thinking ... this news says we're going to have this swarm of insects ... so I'm gonna make a lot of money right now," he says. "It wasn't the case. I was very quickly educated by the company that no, we can't go out and sell business for that."

So, what does pest control say?

Angela Tucker, a board certified entomologist, and a technical manager for Terminix.

The first big point is that cicadas won't harm you, says Angela Tucker, a board-certified entomologist and technical manager for Terminix, another pest control company. Tucker grew up in Kansas, where annual cicadas are more common than periodical cicadas. Annual cicadas are different from periodical cicadas, to be sure, but they share common attributes, like their loud chirping and buzzing and their the general pattern of emerging, mating, laying eggs and dying while the offspring head down below.

Tucker says pest pros let customers "know about the basic biology, and, 'Hey, we appreciate that you have concerns, but they're not going to be getting into your home or business.'"

Meek will explain everything, from the holes people are likely to see in the ground where the bugs emerged to the purpose of the chirping and why cast off exoskeletons litter the ground everywhere.

"We really want people to understand and know that pesticides are not the answer, which sounds really funny coming from a pest control company," Meek says. "Pesticides are not the thing to use on this insect. They don't work for it, and it's a waste of product, and it's a danger to the environment just to spray down because you're afraid of the cicadas."

Cicadas play a role in the environment, too. They'll provide a "cicada smorgasbord" for birds and other animals, and all those dead cicadas will decompose and put nitrogen back in the soil -- which has been aerated as they tunnel out en masse.

And though sometimes people are disappointed that pest control doesn't have a silver-bullet solution to keep the bugs away, Meek says, learning about them goes a long way toward alleviating any fears or concerns.

Meek, Tucker and Fredericks all shared another bit of advice as pest control professionals and entomologists: Enjoy the rare natural spectacle.

Fredericks likes to think about everything that's happened in the last 17 years: Kids graduating high school now were infants the last time Brood X surfaced. iPhones hadn't appeared yet. The last episode of Friends had just aired on NBC.

During an emergence in northern Virginia several years back, he took his daughter, who was 6 at the time, to see and listen to the cicadas.

Tucker underlined that it's an impactful experience, particularly because it doesn't happen that often.

"The neatest thing for me," Fredericks says, "is sometimes when you're out in people's homes, helping them with different pest issues, and little kids find the cast-off skin of the nymphs that stuck to the tree, and they want to talk about that. And it's just a great chance to teach and to educate and to build people's interest in insects and the fact that they're not all bad, and that they are actually pretty cool."

Orkin ranks Alabama city in the top 50 for termites – AL.com

Posted: at 1:50 am

Alabamas port city, known for many things like Mardi Gras, cruises and the annual Moon Pie drop, is also known for something less exciting this year: termites.

Pest control company Orkin ranked Mobile as number 34 in the country for having the most termites. Believe it or not, the city faired better this year than last year, when they were ranked number 23.

Mobile is the only city in Alabama to make the list, according to the website, but joins many others in the South on the list. Miami takes the top spot for termites for the third year in a row.

Orkin created the list by determining which cities had the most first-time residential and commercial termite treatments from Feb. 1, 2020 until Jan. 31, 2021. According to Orkin, termites and termite damage was more widespread last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as more people were spending time at home.

Unusual weather events, like record-breaking storms and hurricanes also helped in termite growth, as moisture is what they thrive on.

Weather conditions directly impact termite swarms, Glen Ramsey, Orkin entomologist, says. Termites swarm when they are looking for moisture and food, and with fewer dead trees to invade in urban areas, termites will move to residential areas for food and moisture.

With that in mind, its no surprise that Mobile ended up on the list, due to the impacts of Hurricane Sally and Hurricane Zeta in the area.

Heres the top 10 cities with the most termites, according to Orkins list:

Detecting termites, other wood-destroying insects | News, Sports, Jobs – Warren Tribune Chronicle

Posted: at 1:50 am

As the temperatures increase and rain clouds are replaced with sunshine and a nice breeze, more people may be spending extra time outside and away from home. While you are out for a walk or going for a picnic in the park, there may be creepy crawlies that are moving in. Wood-destroying insects such as termites, carpenter ants, bees and powderpost beetles are not only annoying, but they also are a threat to your home. Here is what to look for and what do if you spot any unwelcomed insects around your home.

TERMITES

There are several types of termites, and the most common species in Ohio is the subterranean termite. They are around 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch long and can be easily identified by their dark brown, large, protruding mandibles and light-colored bodies. According to Houselogic, termites enjoy soft, damaged and layered wood that touches the ground. Termites really like dead tree stumps and can invade those easily.

You can confirm an infestation from termite corpses and broken wings that look like fish scales throughout the interior and exterior of your property. These are often the collection of deceased swarmers, or reproductive termites that recently gathered in that area. If you notice a gritty, gray-brown film on the surface of damaged material or if a screwdriver can easily pierce the surface of the wood, you most likely have an infestation on your hands.

CARPENTER ANTS

Similar in size to termites, carpenter ants also range from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch in length and can be red, black or brown. Carpenter ant workers have large mandibles, while swarmer ants have wings. They are best identified by their large, reddish-brown heads and black abdomens.

The best way to identify an infestation is from a combination of the worker and swarmer ants. If you spot a few in your area, check around to see if you can locate the colony. As they bore into wood to build their nests, you may find a pile of wood shavings and fecal matter nearby. Damp and decayed wood is often the most suitable place for carpenter ants. It is a good idea to keep an eye on wood structures that are aged or exposed to high humidity.

POWDERPOST BEETLES

Powderpost beetles are approximately 5/16 of an inch long. They are brown or black in color and can be identified by their head disappearing when looked at from above. These small bugs have a set of wings with two antennae at the top of their head and a smaller set of mandibles compared to their aforementioned wood-boring counterparts.

Powderpost beetles lay their eggs in cracks, crevices and pores of wood structures as a sustainable food source for their larvae. To spot an infestation, you may notice grass deposits in addition to pinhead sized holes that serve as an exit for adult beetles. Anobiid powderpost beetles attack soft wood such as spruce and pine whereas lyctid beetles prefer hard wood such as oak, ash and hickory species.

If you think you have an infestation, the best thing to do is call a pest control specialist. In addition to treatment, the specialist can tell you if the insects have caused structural damage. You may need to contact a structural contractor to make repairs even after the property has been treated. It is always a good idea to keep all records of any wood-destroying insect damage, treatment or repairs for when you are ready to sell your home. A wood-destroying insect inspection is a common choice for buyers and with proper records you may be able to skip a second round of treatment. Your Realtor can recommend pest control specialists or structural contractors.

Termite Infestation Is Increasing, Protection Is Improving Building-Products – Building-Products.com

Posted: at 1:50 am

During the early 1970s in suburban Chicago, homeowners were introduced to Wolmanized pressure treated wood during a test market to see if do-it-yourselfers would be interested in building their own decks. Thus began the outdoor living revolution.

Since then, dealers and retailers alike have stocked aisles with pressure treated wood that DIYers and contractors have used to adorn backyards with preserved wood decks, retaining walls, furniture, raised bed gardens, and other projects limited only by their imaginations. The momentum has carried for decades and, although there are other products on the market, treated wood is still the first choice of contractors and builders. Because of its natural beauty (it doesnt just look like wood, it is wood) and its long-term protection against the natural enemies of wood.

Without that protection, wood will fall prey to the destructive little termite, which causes millions of dollars in damages to homes each year. Wreaking destruction for more than 100 million years, termites inhabit all land masses on Earth, except Antarctica, with colonies ranging in size from a few hundred individuals to enormous societies with several million pests. Their queens have the longest lifespan of any other insect in the worldup to 30-50 years.

The number of invasive termite species that destroy wood used in infrastructure increased to 28 in 2017 (up from 17 in 1969), according to the scientific journal Ecology and Evolution. Probably the most common, the subterranean termite, can inhabit large colonies that eat about a pound of wood per day. That may not seem like a lot, but the problem occurs over time as the termites remain hidden where they attack. So days, weeks or even years pass with a colony of small insects eating away at a deck or home. By the time the termites are finally discovered, severe damage could be present. Yearly, damage impacts over 600,000 homes and causes $5 billion in damage and repairs just in the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Lonza has been innovating products to protect wood from its natural enemiesincluding termite, mold and fungal decayfor nearly a century. And since there seems to be no end to an insect that has been eating its way through wood and wood structures for 100 million years, we will continue our research and development, says Scott Skinner, wood specialties business development manager for Lonza Wood Protection.

Innovation is necessary since global climate change could cause termites to show up where they had not been an issue before. According to predictions most of North America will become warmer and many parts will become wetter during the next 100 years. The annual mean temperature in North America from the Gulf of Mexico to Canadas Hudson Bay is expected to increase several degrees in the next century. Areas farther north are expected to warm even more and have higher precipitation than in the past.

Warmer temperatures and wetter than normal conditions give the termite the environment it needs to spread and become even more of a threat in North America, says Scott. In areas where termites may have only been a passing thought to homeowners, the need to protect home and property is becoming a greater concern. And, the places where termites are highly prevalent like the Southeastern and Northwestern areas of the U.S., have already seen a rise in the need to have added protection for all wood structures.

With readily accessible facts and figures as well as educational materials, homeowners are joining builders and contractors in the understanding that protecting their build inside and out is just as important as the beauty finishing touches add. The industry is answering that understanding by developing and improving products that also protect the inside of the home from termite invasion.

Preserved wood is no longer just reserved for outdoor projects. And, termite protection for the home no longer just means ground treatments and reaction to attack after the damage is done. Homes built today can benefit from proactive treatment of the framing from slab (or basement) to roof trusses that are installed during construction. There are successful products on the market today designed specifically to protect the homes structure from termite invasion.

So, why not protect your home from the inside out? adds Scott. Treatments such as Lonzas FrameGuard and Permatek are factory applied to lumber, plywood, and engineered wood products used in structural framing. They protect the walls, floors, and roof assemblies within the house from termites as well as mold and fungal decay.

The preservatives designed specifically to protect the home are applied using a spray or dip treatment and add little cost to the home while offering contractors the opportunity to provide peace of mind to the eventual homeowner.

With the rise of termite infestations and the value structural protection will add to a home, builders will seek treated framing for more and more projects, Scott says. Soon the protecting your whole house revolution will rival the outdoor living craze that started in the 1970s as an experiment. Homeowners will continued to enjoy their treated wood outdoor spaces that they now see as necessary while knowing their home is protected from the inside out.

Most know termites are very destructive and their damage is very costly, so shielding against the insects is an even greater necessity. Offering a shield from the beginning of the build, whether an outdoor living space or the framing behind a homes walls, is the best solution. That protection should include wood preserved to protect against termite attack. Divert (or deter) the 100-million-year-old insects before taking up residence in a structure made from long-lasting treated wood.

Mayor – News – April 2021 – The City of New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board to Conduct Adult Mosquito Abateme – City of New Orleans

Posted: at 1:50 am

NEW ORLEANS The City of New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board (NOMTRCB) will conductadult mosquito abatement tonight in all of Algiers. Treatments will be conducted by truck and airplane from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., weather permitting.

NOMTRCB urges residents of New Orleans to protect themselves from biting mosquitoes and West Nile virus by avoiding mosquito bites. These actions include limiting outdoor activities between dusk and dawn, using EPA-approved insect repellents, reducing the number of mosquitoes around the home, and mosquito-proofing your home by maintaining screens on windows and doors. We are also urging people to empty water-filled containers around the home and yard to reduce potential mosquito breeding sites.

It is imperative for residents to remain vigilant in removing standing water by emptying containers. Water in containers that cannot be removed, such as bird baths, sugar kettles, pools, and ponds, should be changed weekly. Remove trash and clutter, including discarded tires, buckets, tarps and any other items that may collect water. Swimming pools and fountains should be operational and circulating. A mosquito can lay eggs and develop in a space as small as a bottle cap, so every container counts.

For additional information regarding West Nile virus, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's website:http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/qa/prevention.htm.

SAFETY TIPS

Protecting Yourself

Protecting Your Home

Tires are easily filled with rainwater and can collect leaves and litter which provides ideal breeding sites for mosquito larvae. Eliminating scrap tire dumps will eliminate a prolific mosquito habitat.

Residents are encouraged to report mosquito-related issues to 311 and to stay connected with NOMTRCB on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @nolamosquito.

Should treated lumber be used inside? – liherald

Posted: at 1:50 am

By Monte Leeper

Q. Im a plumber, and during a recent meeting with a customer, I noticed that they were using treated lumber indoors, including for beams. One of the beams was a steel plate beam. I told the owner it might not be safe to use green-colored treated lumber inside the house. Do you agree?

A. Yes, I agree. Pressure-treated lumber, intended for outdoor use, can be dangerous, but the beam with the steel plate is also a problem. Theres a reason that when you go to a big-box store or lumberyard, the lumber is separated into two areas, treated and untreated. Theres also a reason the big-box stores stopped letting customers cut treated lumber in the store.

Pressure-treated lumber, developed over 100 years ago, was created by forcing chemicals into lumber using giant pressure chambers. Treatment was intended to keep lumber from being eaten by microbes, insects and termites, and it has worked well, but with unintended consequences. The poisons used in the lumber were studied and shown to cause respiratory ailments, and in some cases, repeated or prolonged contact led to skin cancer. Although poison formulas have been changed to be safer, imagine getting a splinter from the local playground jungle gym. Its easy to understand why school systems across the country replaced the outdoor play equipment with plastic, steel and painted products.

The best place for treated lumber in a building is the closest to where most insects can enter, near the ground. The base plates that connect the floors to the foundation are usually treated lumber, along with an expandable foam and a copper or plastic rigid sheet called a termite shield. If the materials are installed correctly, the invaders cant get into the house. Because the base plate is generally covered with other materials or in a place that isnt as occupied, its safer than in the general living spaces above.

The steel-to-wood connection is dangerous for the separate reason that the chemicals used to treat lumber are very corrosive to metal, to the point that a steel plate inserted between two pieces of lumber to form whats called a flitch plate beam could actually corrode and weaken to collapse in only a few years after it was made.

Since lumber used for decks is generally treated lumber for outdoor use, it is mostly recommended for the structural parts underneath, and not the exposed parts. Outdoors, the off-gassing of poisons used to treat the lumber is most often not considered harmful, although highly sensitive people may still be affected. I havent read specific studies on this, but understand that the use of poisons and pesticides outdoors can still have a profound effect on those people. So use gloves when handling treated lumber, dont use it indoors and coat or cover the exposed lumber, especially in areas where food will be served. Good luck!
