Bees and Hornets in Newman CA

Bees, wasps, hornets, and other stinging insects are extremely dangerous to anyone who’s allergic to them. Wasps and hornets especially are known to be territorial and aggressive toward perceived threats. Multiple attacking hornets can sting repeatedly if they’re trying to ward you off, which can result in injuries. That’s why we recommend extreme caution and that you contact a bee/wasp/hornet exterminator if you notice them on your property.

Whether it’s under a deck, or inside a garage or shed, most flying hymenoptera species (the family that bees, wasps and hornets belong to) are simply looking for a safe area to build their nests. If you have them, it’s because they determined your property is a suitable location with enough food and water for their population to grow and thrive.

No matter what, if you encounter bees or hornets on your property, keep your distance and always assume they’re willing to sting you.

Guide to Cockroach Species in Newman CA

If you have large cockroaches, it’s most likely an American Cockroach or an Oriental Cockroach. If they’re small cockroaches, then it’s probably a German Cockroach, a Brown-Banded Cockroach, or a Field Cockroach (also called a Vaga Cockroach).

American Cockroaches have lighter, more reddish coloring than Oriental Cockroaches, and are more oval in shape. Oriental Cockroaches are more rounded, and shiny black or dark brown in color. German Cockroaches, Brown-Banded Cockroaches, and Vaga Cockroaches are difficult to tell apart because they look so similar. If you have small cockroaches in your Newman home, a trained cockroach exterminator can definitively tell you which type you have–and deploy the correct mitigation strategies.

You should always assume all cockroaches carry harmful diseases and bacteria. Garbage bins and sewage drains are areas that cockroaches frequent, meaning that if they subsequently travel across your counters or get into your food, they will leave behind nasty bacteria they picked up in those unsanitary locations. Some common pathogens spread by cockroaches include salmonella, streptococcus, and staphylococcus. These can be a major health concern.
