The Three Species of Arizona Cockroaches


Most types of cockroaches here in Phoenix, AZ are NOT household pests. The majority of cockroaches live in the tropics, far from fast food and flushing toilets. There are three species of cockroaches that are common to Arizona. They include:

German Cockroach

These cockroaches are notorious worldwide. When they invade, they set up housekeeping, living, feeding and breeding under the same roof with you. They like the kitchen and bathroom, where they can eat, drink and be merry at will.

They are pale brown and only about ½” to ¾” long. These little pests have oodles of off-spring. One female will lay over 2,000 eggs in a single year.

American Cockroach

These cockroaches are reddish brown and up to 2” long. These guys are bigger and uglier then the Germans, but not quite the nuisance.

Americans just visit your home, stopping to grab something to eat. They then leave to live and breed someplace else.

They love warm, moist areas and live in sewers, basements, storage rooms and garbage areas. American roaches can go three months without food and a full month without water.

Turkestan cockroaches are shorter and a little darker than the American roach. The Turkestans prefer to live outdoors rather than in buildings and sewers. You will find then in leaf litter, flower beds, under rocks and sprinkler control or water meter boxes.

These critters pose less of a health hazard than American or German cockroaches and have one major characteristic most people find offensive. They fly!

 

 

Phoenix Roach Control

The city of Phoenix will paint the inside of some 8,000 manholes with a latex based pesticide every two years. This greatly helps in controlling the cockroach populations. However, the City is only responsible for the public sewers. It’s us, the citizens of Phoenix, who are responsible for keeping cockroaches out of our homes and properties.

If you are a Phoenix resident, and are having a problem with cockroaches in and around your property, contact a local pest control professional today!

Scorpion Control Could Save You $83,000

300px Scorpion tail Scorpion Control Could Save You $83,000

Tail of a scorpion (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

An Ahwatukee, AZ women was stung by more then just a scorpion this summer. Marcie Edmonds was opening a box of air-conditioner filters inside her garage when she felt a sharp pinch with an accompanying burning sensation on her abdomen. The 52-year old woman determined that she was stung by a scorpion and opted out of seeking medical attention at first.

Symptoms

Over the next hour after the sting, Mrs. Edmonds started experiencing additional tingling sensations, fuzzy vision, throat swelling, darting eyes, and tense muscles. She knew she was in trouble when she lost her ability to walk and had difficulty breathing.

Treatment

Soon after experiencing all the painful symptoms of a scorpion sting, Marcie Edmonds contacted Poison Control which advised her to go to the emergency room immediately. With the assistance of a friend, Mrs. Edmonds was taken to Chandler regional Medical Center where she was informed about possible scorpion sting treatments like the antivenom Anascorp that could quickly alleviate her symptoms. Her symptoms subsided after she received two doses of the drug through an IV, and was discharged from the hospital in about three hours.

The Bill

Several weeks after the initial June scorpion sting, Marcie Edmonds was figuratively stung by a massive hospital bill she received in the mail that totaled $83,046. The two Anascorp doses, billed at $39,652 a piece, were partially covered by her Humana Insurance. Edmonds was held financially responsible for the remaining $25,537, and said the physician never talked with her about the cost of the drug or treatment alternatives.

Scorpion Control

Scorpion control is a must for those living in Arizona. Scorpion Control professionals offer year round treatments for approximately $400. Doing the math in my head, Mrs. Edmonds could have possibly saved herself $82,600 and avoided this nightmare altogether, is she solicited the help of an experienced exterminator.

Glendale, AZ 4-Year-Old Saves Grandma From Killer Bees

FOX 10 News – Phoenix, AZ | KSAZ-TV

Four-year-old Whitney Chrisman’s cartoons were interrupted Tuesday morning as she looked out the window and saw her grandma being attacked by a swarm of hostile Africanized “killer” bees.

“I saw bees and I heard bzzzzzz,” said Whitney

Little Whitney possibly saved her grandmother’s life by pushing her lifeline button and getting help. Grandma Betty, as Whitney calls her, was stung numerous times all over her face and body while outside her Glendale, AZ home. The attack left her in critical condition, in an intensive care unit, with multiple stings in and around her eyes, nose, mouth, and throat.

“Around and inside her nose and inside her mouth is just black, covered with bee stings,” says Whitney’s mom Cindy Chrisman.

The Africanized bees came form a beekeeper living next door, who is now looking at multiple fines for violating property laws and running a commercial business out of his home. The Africanized bees were so aggressive it took firefighters hours calm the bees down by spraying their hives with foam.

Africanized “Killer” Bees

Africanized bees, 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. European and Africanized honeybees can only be distinguished by molecular analysis.

These Africanized bees are ten times more likely to instigate an attack or sting then a common European Honeybee. What makes Africanized honeybees so hazardous is that they are more easily irritated, quick to swarm, attack in greater numbers, and will chase their victims for greater distances.

Trouble with Bees?

If you are having trouble with bees of any kind, contact your local pest control professional. Due to the ways bees carry pollen, dust pesticides are an effective way to quickly do away with bee problems. The bees can also be safely removed be a bee removal company.

Creepy Crawly Files: The Tailless Whip Scorpion

A few days ago I had the opportunity to see the very rare and illusive Tailless Whip Scorpion. A technician was able to catch the unusual arachnid while on a job, and was able to bring it into the office for further observation. The experience was a first for me, and it was really rather extraordinary to see this creature in person. The story even made the evening news.

The Tailless Whip Scorpion

Some arachnids are very well-known. We all see spiders and scorpions quite frequently here in Arizona. There are also less known arachnids like the tailless whip-scorpion. Whip-scorpions have six legs in which they can run sideways on. They also have very vicious pincers that are used to catch their prey. Their prey includes most types of ground insects. A single cricket can nourish the Whip Scorpion for up to six months.

Are Tailless Whip Scorpions Safe?

Whip-scorpions differ from their scorpion cousin in that they do not have a stinger and are non-venomous. Whip-tail Scorpions are safe for humans to hold, if you can get past their frightening appearance. They have no silk glands or venomous fangs, but can spray a digestive enzyme containing an acid that is used to stun its prey. They hardly ever bite if threatened, but can grasp you with their pedipalps (pinchers) which can be uncomfortable.

Watch Out For Other Types of Scorpions!

While Tailless Whip Scorpions are safe, their scorpion cousins are not. They can be very dangerous to your health and the health of your family.

If you are having scorpion problems, contact a local pest control professional immediately!
