Termites in Northampton appear differently depending upon their job within the colony. The workers look similar to the nymphs with soft, fat, white bodies that are similar to larvae. The soldiers have soft bodies, but they are equipped with hard, large heads and jaws to help them protect their colony. They can appear yellow, reddish-orange, or black. The reproductive termite will have wings and a hard body. The reproductive termite will appear pale yellow, light brown, dark brown, or black. The only termites that you are apt to see out in the open are the winged reproductive termites. They will swarm and gather around rotting stumps or other moisture-damaged wood on warm days, especially just after it rains. The others will generally stay hidden underground or deep inside the recesses of your home. If you suspect that you have termites swarming on your property or if you notice the signs that they may have already invaded your home, be sure to give the termite experts here at Moyer Pest Control a call.

Protecting your Northampton home from sneaky little bed bugs can be quite a feat because you can come in contact with these pests literally anywhere, but there are some things that you can do to help avoid bringing these biting insects home with you at the end of the day. First, remain vigilant. Search the nooks and crannies of furniture, public transportation seats, and any other area that you plan to spend time. Look for the apple-seed shaped insects themselves, their shed casings, or the small red or brown droplets of blood or feces that they leave behind. Make sure you keep your guard up whenever you are out of your home – schools, hospitals, libraries, malls – nothing is off-limits for bed bugs. Next, make sure you do not place luggage, purses, computer bags, backpacks or any other personal item on the floor of a public building. Keeping these items up off ground level will help reduce the chances that a bed bug or two will crawl aboard for a free ride into your home. Lastly, when you return from traveling or when students return home from college, make sure to check your personal belongings for any signs of bed bugs. Take out all clothing that you brought, even if it was not worn, and immediately wash it on the hottest possible setting, inspect luggage and baggage carefully, and vacuum thoroughly before storing away. Do a periodic check of student backpacks for grammar and highschool-aged students as well.
If you begin to notice unexplained bites that resemble mosquito bites, except they are in groups or in a linear pattern, or any of the other signs that bed bugs have invaded your home, contact Moyer Pest Control. Our bed bug control specialists can quickly identify a bed bug infestation, no matter how big or how small. Moyer offers fast, accurate K-9 inspection services, conventional treatments, and environmentally responsible heat treatments to eliminate bed bugs from your Northampton home or business. Don’t let bed bugs bite, when fast, effective, discreet bed bug control services are only a call away!
