Are Wasps & Hornets Dangerous?

Sometimes it seems like wasps and hornets serve no purpose but to torment and attack. Their sting can leave you with pain for hours afterward. During the summer, they are a common problem and can get out of control if they aren’t dealt with as soon as you see one. If you have an allergy to wasp or hornet venom, then a sting by one of these insects can not only leave you in pain, but can be life threatening. Eagle Pest Services would like to help you avoid a run in with wasps and hornets this summer.

Firebrats & Silverfish Difference

Firebrats are small insects similar to silverfish. They are also known as bristletails, and are one of the most primitive insects. They are so primitive that they are completely wingless. They are generally between 3/8 and a ½ inch long and come in a variety of shades and mottled gray with darker bands of scales running across their strangely undulating bodies while the related silverfish is, as you would expect, silver.

Black Widow Vs. Brown Recluse Spiders

There aren’t many spiders that pose a strong threat to humans. Even though many of them aren’t threatening to us, many people are afraid of them. There are however, a couple of spiders that can bite humans and inject venom that has some unfortunate side effects. The black widow and brown recluse are two spider species that you really should avoid. Their bites can cause serious problems. Eagle Pest Services is going to compare the two bites and effects they have on humans.

Identification of Centipedes & Millipedes

Millipedes and centipedes both have segmented bodies, both breathe through spiracles and have no direct copulatory organs. There are many differences between them though. Centipedes are flexible, dorsoventrally flattened arthropods and millipedes are more rigid arthropods distinguishable by their subcylindrical shape. Centipedes have one pair of legs per body segment, while millipedes have two pairs. Centipedes are known for speed while millipedes move slowly and are inclined to burrow. Fortunatley, these occasional invaders do not carry diseases that affect people, animals or plants. They will not damage your home, but they may leave a stain if crushed.
