There are many types of fleas, however, the most common is the cat flea. The name is deceptive, though, as cat fleas can feed on many host organisms such as deer, rabbits, raccoons, squirrels, dogs and humans.
How did my pet get fleas?
Any type of pet has the potential of carrying fleas with them, especially when they’re exposed to other pets. Such places could be doggy daycare, pet grooming locations, pet hotels and dog parks.
Once your pet is exposed, it could potentially carry the fleas right back to your home, and that is when they start breeding and infesting your home. Wonder if you have a flea infestation problem, contact your local pest control company, Bugs by Brian®. for a no obligation inspection and estimate.
What do I do if I have a flea infestation?

Which means they have the capability of carrying the fleas throughout your home. So, when you start preparing to rid your home of fleas, you want to focus on the whole house and your pets at the same time.

Pest control for your outdoor event is challenging but manageable. You can do it yourself (DIY) or contact your local pest control company Bugs By Brian® for our Special Event treatment.
Choose your outside location for your event wisely. Make sure the shrubs and area are trimmed out nicely. Make sure there is no standing water that absolutely attracts mosquitoes. Have the grass mowed to its lowest capability. If you are event is in a public area, make sure crumbs, trash etc. are removed. These items attract those unwanted bugs to your event.
Other ways to protect your event from bugs is have a tent with screens, treat the area before the event, keep lighting (which attracts bugs) away from your guests. Make sure you have citronella candles and/or Tiki torches lit and have insect repellant handy for guests. Another great way is to slow burn coffee grounds, mosquitoes truly hate the smell.
Use trash cans with lids and place away from the party area. And cover food with lids or the screen food party tents you can find at most stores. Bugs do not like wind, so think about having fans blowing in your event area.
Finally plant mosquito and bug repellant plants. Check with your local gardening store to find out what works in your area. Some ideas would be mosquito plants, thyme, peppermint, spearmint, marigolds and rosemary.

A termite is considered a pest because of the extensive damage caused by an infestation. In the U.S., the total value of all destruction is estimated to be around $5 billion dollars annually.
Termites are wood-destroying organisms known as Detritivores. Meaning, they obtain nutrients vital their growth from organic compounds. (An organic compound is any liquid, solid, or gas which contains carbon in its molecular structure.) This insect exploits reduced carbon from compounds as energy sources, like carbohydrates, fats and proteins derived from plants and animals.
Unfortunately, all human structures are built from the components which termites seek as their primary food source. Simply, they eat the very products our homes and buildings are made from. If left untreated, the benefit to the ecosystem will be to reduce your dwelling into a reusable pile of organic dust. Termites live in mostly wooded areas, when development occurs and the land is cleared of all trees and a structure is erected in their place, we are exchanging one termite food source for another. Termites require four things necessary to their survival: food, moisture, shelter, and temperature.
Of the approximate 4,000 species of termites worldwide.
Since termites are a constant threat to your home or building, here are some tips to reduce or prevent the destruction caused by this insect pest.
