We want your house to be yours, not a hidden city home to a variety of pests. Our treatments are centered around not only just being effective, but committed to using green and organic techniques. Our general pest control services are sure to help with whatever need there may be. We deal with a variety of pests, whether it’s insects, rodents, or reptiles home to the desert of Nevada. Here are a few pests that you might encounter:
Ants are prevalent throughout Las Vegas, and they’re well adapted for the desert habitat. Unfortunately, there are numerous species that survive and thrive throughout the area. Keep an eye out for odorous house ants, Argentine ants, southern fire ants, velvety tree ants, and various carpenter ants. Ants are usually quite easy to identify, due to their shape and tri-segmented bodies. Ants are usually harmless to humans (except for varieties like the southern fire ant), but carpenter ants can actually damage a home over time. If you note these pests, we can help you to eradicate them from your home.
Cockroaches are notoriously resilient pests and they’re infamously nasty. There are several varieties of cockroach that thrive in the state of Nevada, including the German, Oriental, and American cockroaches. Cockroaches are wide and flat, and they have long antennae. They proliferate quickly, which means that it’s as important as ever to take action if you notice signs of cockroaches on your property.
Silverfish are long, many-legged insects that have bristled tails and long antennae, and their prevalent here in Las Vegas. These pests are named for their silver color. Their small body shape enables them to squeeze into small gaps to infiltrate a building. Stop silverfish in their tracks with Hidden City Pest Control!
There are thousands of spider species that exist throughout North America, and many of them call Nevada their home. In particular, you should keep an eye out for black widow spiders (which are black aside from an orangish-red hourglass shape of its lower abdomen), and brown recluse spiders (which are brown and feature an hourglass shape on their backs)—these spiders are venomous, and may cause injury or death. Regardless of the spider species in your home or building, we can help.
Bees, Wasps, & Hornets
Bees, wasps, and hornets can be a real nuisance. These stinging, flying bugs are often territorial, which can be a major problem for DIY exterminators. If you notice any nests, it may be best to call in a professional pest control outfit to wipe out these colonies.
Scorpions are especially easy to identify, and they’re extremely dangerous. Their tails feature a stinger and poison gland. Don’t provoke or attack a scorpion, it may become aggressive. Be sure to call a professional pest control company to remove any scorpions on your property.
Although crickets are harmless to humans, they can wreak havoc on a home, and they’re quite annoying. Crickets make a high-pitched chirping noise by rubbing their wing parts together. A female cricket can lay hundreds of eggs at a time.
Pillbugs, sowbugs, or rollie pollies are also harmless to humans. Pillbugs migrate to areas that are high in moisture. They also favor decayed vegetation, since they can consume this vegetation. It’s best to remove any sources of moisture from your property to keep the pillbug population on your property at bay.
Earwigs are six-legged insects that have long slender bodies with pincers on their abdomen. These pests are usually black or red, and they’re notoriously fast. You might find earwigs in your garden, or in dark, damp spaces.
Mice can spread disease, and they can damage your property. A mouse can easily chew through building infrastructure, and they can carry salmonella as well as the hantavirus. Treatment for mice can vary depending on the severity of an infiltration.
Snakes, including venomous snakes, thrive throughout Nevada. Be weary of copperheads, water moccasins, rattlesnakes, and cottonmouth snakes—they are common, and they are poisonous. It can be difficult to identify whether or not a snake is poisonous, so seek out a pest control professional if you come across a snake.
