Treating for Bed Bugs in a Commercial Setting

Treating for Bed Bugs in a Commercial Setting

While hotels, along with multi-family and single family homes still rank as the top three places in the US for reported bed bug problems, according to a 2015 survey from the National Pest Management Association in conjunction with the University of Kentucky. Bed Bugs without Borders discovered that from hotels to hospitals, from daycares to dorm rooms and even to the corporate environment, bed bugs can be found just about anywhere people gather to relax and sleep.

Hitching rides in luggage, on clothes and even in electronics, bed bugs travel wherever there’s something they can catch a ride on. Fast-moving, bed bugs can also travel rapidly from unit to unit in multi-family properties, dorm rooms and rooms in healthcare facilities through the walls and holes made for plumbing and electrical installations.

Bed Bugs on the move

The survey also points out that one of the reasons bed bug infestations are on the rise in the US centers on our increasingly mobile lifestyles. As more people fly to their business and travel destinations and stay overnight, as we use public transportation and even as we Uber around town, we encourage bed bug activity.

Fortunately, the survey also shows that people are becoming more bed bug-conscious before, during and after traveling, checking bed bug registries before booking overnight accommodations, inspecting hotel rooms when checking-in, in addition to laundering and vacuuming all traveling items when returning home. Bed bugs can be challenging to eliminate altogether from commercial settings, as people unknowingly bring bed bugs into the commercial arena.

Commercial bed bug services requests on the rise to treat and monitor bed bug activity

Some states like Ohio, one of many, where bed bugs are showing resistance to commonly used materials, have Agricultural and Health departments teaming up to develop programs that distribute grant funding to political subdivisions and housing authorities in an all-out effort to combat bed bugs. These measures also include retaining ongoing professional pest control services that will also conduct monitoring services, as well as purchasing and distributing mattress covers.

Ongoing bed bug control is the only way to get a handle on these elusive pests

As commercial businesses can’t really track or control bed bugs arriving and departing their properties, Truly Nolen recommends ongoing bed bug control programs.

Truly Nolen takes commercial properties from inspection to prevention with a plan tweaked specifically to your business’s needs. Our innovative Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system goes to work on bed bugs, starting with a free inspection of your commercial properties. After a thorough inspection, Truly Nolen service experts devise a plan with business owners or property managers to treat your business, customized to your schedule and other considerations.

Commercial businesses work with pest control companies prepping business establishments for bed bug treatment

Truly Nolen works with commercial properties step-by-step to prepare for bed bug treatments, suggesting that:

  • All washable or dry clean safe items should be removed in bags from affected areas and cleaned to avoid spreading bed bugs to additional areas.
  • All carpets in affected areas must be thoroughly vacuumed and vacuum cleaner bags disposed of inside a plastic bag, then sealed, and deposited in an outdoor receptacle.
  • Non-washable items, such as accessories, clocks, picture frames, office materials and supplies should be secured in plastic bags or totes and left for treatment.
  • All other miscellaneous items, including cardboard boxes, need to be bagged and left in affected area for treatment.

Truly’s innovative IPM system uses innovative technology and materials

Professional pest control companies constantly update to the latest materials and technology to treat persistent pests, as bed bugs continue to become resistant to commonly used materials. Truly Nolen’s innovative Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system uses only the most effective, eco-friendly materials and methods to eliminate bed bugs from your property.

Treatments vary depending on affected material content and type

  • Treatments include low flow and high flow misting techniques on mattresses, box springs, curtains, leather, furniture and office supplies, depending on the composition of items. Paintings and other artwork are treated carefully with another method that will be safe for those items.
  • In hotels, motels, resorts, hospitals and other businesses with infested beds, Truly Nolen suggests using cost-saving options for mattresses and box springs. Bed bug specific encasement systems exclude future infestations, while any treated bed bugs inside encasements will soon die off.

Eliminating bed bugs takes education, communication, awareness and effort in commercial and residential environments. As bed bugs can affect all businesses and residential properties alike, homeowners and business travelers should know what to look for when traveling and practice prevention initiatives on returning from trips to prevent bed bugs from infesting their homes and businesses.

In the tourist, hospitality, healthcare and just about every other industry today, business owners are at risk for bed bug infestations. Most companies can’t afford to constantly fight bed bug issues, so getting on board with a reliable professional pest control company, such as Truly Nolen just makes good business sense. Bed bugs may be challenging but Truly Nolen knows how to keep them out of your homes and businesses. Contact your local Truly Nolen location to schedule a free bed bug inspection today!

Phoenix Pest Control Technician Ray Rogers is TRULY Golden

Truly Nolen Pest Control Technician Ray Rogers, who started with the company on September 15, 1966 at its Phoenix service office at the age of 17, is celebrating an amazing milestone in this day and age on September 15, 2016 – 50 years with one company!

Rogers, who has always worked out of the company’s Phoenix service office, originally started as a termite technician, but after six months, he switched to general pest control and has kept the same route and territory ever since. “There are two people on my route who have been customers of mine for the entire 50 years I’ve been here,” said Rogers. “They are now in their 90s and I always enjoy seeing their familiar faces.”

Rogers said he has seen Mr. Nolen at least 20 times over the last 50 years and has flown with him on his private plane before to help bring trucks from Tucson to Phoenix. “One of the reasons I have stayed with the company for so long is because Truly’s attitude about his employees has always been so warm,” said Rogers. “I’ve worked for so many different managers throughout my career, and each one of them has helped make this branch feel like home for me.”

Blessed with a wife of 36 years and four children, Rogers said one of the reasons why he has not retired as of yet is because he enjoys moving around and not staying in one spot all day. “From bees and mice to bird work and roaches, I’ve helped my customers have peace of mind throughout my career, which is one of the things I’m most proud of in my career,” said Rogers.

When asked what advice he would give to someone in terms of remaining with a company for a long time regardless of the field, Rogers said meeting challenges and taking them in stride has kept him going for 50 years. “Wherever you work, whether pest control or any other industry, you have to be willing to do the work required,” said Rogers. “Everything is a team effort no matter at what point you are in your career, so if you’re not willing to make sacrifices that help your team, it will be hard to be successful down the road.”

“Ray is someone our entire team learns from on a regular basis,” said Leo Gomes, Truly Nolen District Manager, Phoenix Valley. “We are so fortunate he has been part of our team for 50 years and we look forward to many more years together.”

The Rise of a New Termite Species Found in Florida

New Termite Species Found in Florida

South Florida is home to many different termite species, including two invasive subterranean species, Asian and Formosan termites. In the continental US, these two aggressive termite species overlap only in South Florida. While the Formosan termite’s range extends from Key West, Florida to Charleston, South Carolina, Asian termites don’t move north of Palm Beach County, Florida. Well… they haven’t yet.

According to David Fleshler’s Sun Sentinel article, “2 termites mate, create havoc for South Florida,” researchers noticed the two “formidable non-native species” were swarming at the same time of year, since 2014. One researcher on both studies even mentioned that he witnessed the two species mating in the Ft. Lauderdale area where he lives.

“This is worrisome,” said Thomas Chouvenc, research assistant at the University of Florida’s Subterranean Termite laboratory in Davie, “as the combination of genes between the two species results in highly vigorous hybridized colonies that can develop twice as fast as the two parental species.”

Researchers say that the really troubling thing about these hybrid termites lies in the fact that they possess the potential to cause more devastating damage much faster than their parents. Many questions are circulating concerning this possible hybrid subterranean termite.

  • Will these termites be able to withstand colder climates?
  • Will they be sterile adults like many hybrids?
  • Will this hybrid be confined to South Florida?
  • How fast will hybrid colonies grow?

Adding to the horror of faster developing, more aggressive, difficult to control termites who are hungry for all types of wood, experts point out that, “a termite colony can live up to 20 years with millions of individuals, and that “the damaging potential of a hybrid colony remains a serious threat to homeowners, even if the hybrid colony does not produce fertile winged termites.”

How can homeowners prevent termites from entering their property, especially extremely aggressive termites, like this new hybrid?

  • Fill in all cracks and crevices in your home’s foundation, around all potential entry points.
  • Repair or replace leaky faucets and moisture creating conditions in basements and around the outside of your home.
  • Check wood structures regularly for any unusual activity such as termite waste or damaged wood.
  • Check for mud tunnels built by subterranean termites to access your home from their nearby underground nests.

Truly Nolen’s Total Termite Protection Plan

The best assurance for termite prevention involves contacting a trusted professional pest control company to set up a thorough inspection to evaluate your home and set up a customized protection system for your home. Our trained professionals inspect the interior and exterior of your home, around potential entry points, as well as checking in places termites like to hide.

Truly Nolen offers our Total Termite Protection Plan, geared to control and prevent any and all termite issues. Your Truly Nolen technician “thinks like a bug,” addressing all potential termite areas inside and outside your home with our extensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that combines above and below ground treatments into one plan focused on the treatment that your particular home requires.

Focusing on both the soil around and beneath your home, as well as your house, Truly Nolen safeguards your home and family against all types of termites, even new subterranean species. We treat termite prone areas and unlike other companies, we treat areas where termites are likely to hide on the interior of your homes including attics, wall voids, eaves, doors, windows and concrete slabs.

On the exterior, Truly Nolen treats cracks and crevices in your foundation, crawlspaces, spaces between slab joints, decks, unfinished wooden landscape features, fences, tree stumps and any other wooden areas on your property.

How It’s Done

Known for our constantly updating techniques and state of the art equipment,
our applications get the job done with several invasive and non-invasive methods, providing your family and home complete protection. Here’s the breakdown:

The Tornado: For cracks and crevices in finished surfaces, or termite galleries, the tornado forces a high-pressure mixture of materials with water and air as a propellant deep into cracks and crevices, penetrating deep inside doors, window sills, window jambs and moldings.

High Pressure Mister: Treats unfinished wood in wall voids, attics and other vulnerable places with high-pressure water mixed with active ingredients.

Liquid Treatments: Treating the soil around and under your home with liquid treatments in trenches and through small drilled holes creates a barrier around your foundation, your concrete slab and tub traps.

Under Slab Protection: Utilizing lightweight, stainless steel injection rods, we apply 360-degree coverage that saves you time and money.

As South Florida braces for the new hybrid super subterranean termite, fearing increased damage to Miami-Dade, Broward structures and other homes and businesses in the area, Truly Nolen urges homeowners to act immediately to prevent extensive termite damage with our Total Termite Protection Plan. Contact Truly Nolen to schedule a free termite inspection and get on the termite defensive with a plan customized for your home and family’s needs!

Carpenter Ants: Defeating the Army Behind Your Walls

Carpenter Ants: Defeating the Army Behind Your Walls

Have you ever wondered what a carpenter ant really is? We can guarantee you that they are not building beautiful furniture pieces. In fact, quite the opposite. You may think, “oh, it’s just an ant,” but these ants will give you something to worry about it if not taken care of.

Carpenter ants and termites look for new homes in the summer

Carpenter ant 6-04-18Like termites, in late winter and early spring, young adult carpenter ants, known as alates, swarm to mate and start new colonies. Male and female reproductives mate and form new colonies. These new colonies need places to nest and raise their broods. Unlike termites, these sometimes large black and brown to reddish bi-colored ants do not eat wood, but burrow through it, creating galleries and tunnels, causing structural damage to homes.

Measuring from .25 inches to around .75 inches, carpenter ants need a constant source of moisture to survive. Attracted to damp wood around your property or constantly moist boards and siding, carpenter ants like to nest in the damp and rotting wood outside your home, but will move inside by burrowing through damp wood or finding cracks in wood on the exterior of your home. Sometimes, they even take over termite colonies or old termite galleries.

Carpenter ant colonies include a main/parent colony and can include several satellite colonies. While carpenter ants may nest outside and forage up to 100 yards in search of food, satellite colonies may exist in your walls, attics and around moist areas in your home.

Outside, carpenter ants prefer proteins, feeding on live and dead insects and they like the sweet honeydew produced by aphids and some scale insects. In your home, carpenter ants are attracted to fatty foods, meats and sweets like jelly and syrups, foraging between sunset and midnight in your kitchen.

Signs of a carpenter ant issue

Signs of carpenter ant infestations include:

  • Discarded wings of swarmers near windowsills, baseboards and vents.
  • Active swarming indoors.
  • Sawdust piles made by boring through wood, and the ant excavating remains of dead ants and frass (sawdust).
  • Irregular, wide, clean, ragged surfaced galleries in wood surfaces.
  • Active foraging in your home at night or other low-light situations such as early mornings.

Contact a professional pest control company to eliminate carpenter ants and termites

Carpenter ants-02If you suspect carpenter ant activity in your home, contact a professional pest control company, such as Truly Nolen to schedule a free pest inspection. Although carpenter ants and termites look similar, carpenter ants have a defined waist, between their thorax and abdomen, while termites are more broadly connected. Carpenter ant alates’ sport a pair of upper wings that are much larger than their lower wings, whereas both pairs of termite alates’ wings are relatively the same size.

Also, carpenter ants have bent antennae but termite antennae are straight with no bend in them. Because carpenter ants may be causing damage to your home that is expensive to repair, we recommend contacting a trained, certified pest professional to inspect your property and design a plan to eradicate carpenter ants from your property.

Truly Nolen targets nests with innovative IPM system

Truly Nolen’s innovative Integrated Pest Management systems (IPM) utilize people and pet friendly treatments and methods that address primary and satellite nests. Our technicians are trained to identify potential carpenter ant areas and use materials that not only address your current infestation but target nests to eliminate colonies at their sources, killing off the queen, the brood and many worker ants. Without queens or secondary reproductive to take the queen’s place, reproduction stops and the colony collapses.

Carpenter ant prevention guidelines

To prevent carpenter ant invasions, keep these guidelines in mind:

  • Repair or replace leaky faucets and other moisture sources around your home.
  • Remove standing water from porches, decks and other poor water drainage areas.
  • Regularly inspect crawlspaces, attics and basements for moisture.
  • Seal or caulk all cracks and crevices around your foundation, as well as around windows and doors.
  • Remove all landscaping debris (leaves, litter, mulch) and construction materials that are against the house and stack firewood at least 20 feet away from your structure.
  • Keep tree branches and shrubs trimmed away from your house as they provide bridges for carpenter ants intent on moving indoors.
  • Regularly inspect decks, wooden storage sheds, old tree stumps and other wood on your property for signs of carpenter ant activity, like small holes in wooden surfaces.

Our innovative eco-friendly Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach arms our technicians with the knowledge and materials to protect your home from carpenter ant colonies.

Truly Nolen Seeing More Indoor Pests Due to Atypical Atlanta Summer

With hotter than normal temperatures and drought like conditions over the past few months, recent scattered rains have caused something else to scatter inside Atlanta-area homes – pests!

“This atypical Atlanta Summer in terms of weather has caused ants to pop up all over the place,” said Chris Ashley, Truly Nolen franchisee, Canton. “When rain follows a long drought period, this is typically when people start seeing a rise in ants in their homes.”

Ants are always looking for food when they do invade a home, so keeping food sources under wraps and stored properly is one way to help keep them at bay before calling for a professional. In addition to ants, Ashley said several other insects are heading indoors due to the abnormal weather pattern.

“During some of my recent pest inspections, we have come across American and smokey brown roaches, earwigs, centipedes and beetles that normally prefer living outdoors in landscape areas,” Ashley said. “Other than ants, none of these are often spotted indoors, which is why the drought followed by scattered rain is the main culprit.”

As a homeowner, there are measures you can take to minimize the conditions that are conducive to pests and help reduce the likelihood of an infestation. From eliminating wood-to-soil contact wherever possible to diverting water from the foundation of the home, prevention is key. In addition, the Truly Nolen website contains a pest identification section to help users in case they need to identify a problem in their home: https://www.trulynolen.com/pest-identifier/.

“Whether you end up trying to handle the problem yourself or calling a professional to conduct a pest inspection, the atypical summer weather ensures a surge in pests sooner than later,” said Ashley.

Mosquito Madness in Charlotte

Mosquito sucking blood
Charlotte, NC is nationally ranked one of the worst cities for mosquitoes. High temperatures and moist conditions attract mosquitoes, and standing water allows them to breed. Mosquitoes can be identified by their slender bodies and long legs. Adults can live from 10 days all the way up to 6 months. With summer in full force, taking a proactive approach against these pests is key to preventing bites.

Do Mosquitoes Favor Some More Than Others?

An article from Smithsonian magazine explains that some individuals are more prone to mosquito bites than others. Individuals who have type O blood type are especially favorable to mosquitoes. Larger individuals who emit more carbon dioxide when they breathe are also on this list. This group includes tall people and the obese. Elevated body temperatures, excess sweat and bacteria on the skin are also contributing factors.

Prevention and Types of Mosquito-borne Illnesses

Mother Applying Bug Spray To Daughter
Families in the Charlotte area should take precautions against mosquitoes, mainly during the months of June, July and August, to reduce chances of the transfer of mosquito-borne illnesses. Mosquito bites are known to spread diseases and cause allergic reactions. Some mosquito-related illnesses that have been reported are Zika, Malaria, Encephalitis, Chikungunya Virus and West Nile Virus. Over a thousand people have died from West Nile since 1999. There have been three confirmed cases of Chikungunya Virus in North Carolina with symptoms of fever, headache, muscle ache and joint pain. If you have been bitten and are experiencing any enhanced symptoms, we urge you to seek immediate medical attention.

Here are some simple tips to keep in mind that can help you avoid and prevent the dangers and annoyance of mosquitoes:

  • Wear long sleeves and white or light colored clothing when camping or outdoors for an extended period of time.
  • Steer clear of wearing flowery fragrances before spending time outdoors to decrease your chances of becoming a target.
  • Place citronella plants and candles on patios and porches. Chemical-free repellents also come in handy for warding off mosquitoes.
  • Mosquitoes breed in standing water so keep an eye out for pooling water in your yard and stay up to date on pool upkeep if you have a swimming pool at home.

Beat the Bite!

Pest control services, such as Truly Nolen Charlotte, offer mosquito mitigation for residential and commercial customers. Expert pest removal agents search for moist areas and conditions conducive to mosquito breeding around the bite site to begin a program designed to control mosquitoes through larval to adult stages. If avoidance and prevention fail to defeat the problem, reach out to Truly Nolen Charlotte at 704-910-2936 for answers.

New Headquarters “Global Sign”, Three Openings since December Have Truly Nolen International On Course for a Busy 2016

Shortly after the Truly Nolen International Training Center opened at 1800 33rd Street in Orlando in late-2015, Jose Lutz, CEO, Truly Nolen International, was looking for something special to draw attention from passing vehicles on Interstate 4. With the recent installation of TNI’s “Global Sign” and three more grand openings, 2016 has already been a successful one.

In conjunction with the sign company that designed, fabricated, and installed the unique project, the head-turning sign is a 7.5 foot-diameter expanded-polystyrene ball surrounded by aluminum in a 12 foot-diameter outer ring. The sign is held in place by 11 x 11 x 6-ft. foundation footers filled in with 35 cubic yards of concrete.

“Once we moved into our new building late last year, we always had a vision for a sign that would stand out and make drivers and passengers take a second look while they pass by our office,” said Lutz. “Since the sign was installed at the beginning of April, we have received at least a few calls a week complimenting us on the sign’s unique design!”

The franchises that have opened since January 1, 2016 are located in Las Tablas, Panama; Maputo, Mozambique; and the Isle of Cape Verde. These three openings bring the company’s total to 207 offices in 62 countries.

Offering the same quality service for which it is known domestically, Truly Nolen International, which employs over 3,500 around the globe, has the largest footprint of any pest control company in the world, in terms of countries in which they operate. Currently, 90 percent of the company’s international branches serve businesses both for active and preventative protection from pest issues.
