 In order to estimate rodent control, we normally would need to  see the home and evaluate the infestation. These pesky critters can do  major damage to a home as well as being a health hazard. In most cases,  we can determine the type of rodent by performing a thorough inspection  of the home, attic and crawlspaces. Hurd's Pest Control’s trained  technicians will determine the entry point and then offer the customer a  comprehensive treatment plan. An integrated program using rodenticides  and traps, removal of shelter, removal of food and water, and  rat-proofing is most effective. 


 Many people don’t consider ticks a problem since areas with high  populations of imported fire ants tend to have lower populations of  ticks.  Ticks have not disappeared and can be a pest in some locations.  Ticks are arachnids, more closely related to spiders than insects.  They  have two body regions and eight legs.  Immature ticks require a blood  meal before molting to the next developmental stage.  Adult female ticks  also require a blood meal before laying eggs.  Since ticks can feed on  multiple hosts during their lifetime, including humans and animals, they  are capable of transmitting disease organisms through their bite. Ticks  wait for their hosts by climbing up vertical surfaces such as  vegitation, fences or shrubbery. 


 Bed Bugs have become a fairly common problem around  Dallas/Fortworth. We at Hurd's Pest Control will first interview the  caller to determine our comprehensive approach to a solution for the bed  bug infestation. Most homes will require at least two visits from our  technicians. The homeower will need to do make preparation before the  scheduled treatment. The more prep work the homeowner does, the least  costly the treament will be. Treating for bed bugs requires treating all  possible cracks and crevices. Upholstery items such as curtains will  also need to be effectively treated or removed. All parts of the bed,  any pictures, or any possible hiding spots will need to be treated. This  is a very comprehensive treatment and will certainly take full  cooporation of the homeowner and pest control professional. 


 There are two types of rats that typically infest homes in this  area.  The Roof Rat and the Norway Rat and of course the little house  mouse.  Contrary to popular belief rats are not stupid.  They are smart  little creatures that have been around for years.
The Roof Rat   (Rattus rattus) is known by several names including:  ship rat, white  bellied rat, gray bellied rat, alexandrine rat and climbing rat.  The  Roof Rat is a slender rat, more streamlined than the Norway Rat.  The  hair is generally darker usually with a lighter colored belly.  The eyes  and ears are larger in proportion to the head and has a pointed nose  with a tail that is longer than the body.  The droppings on average  are .5″ long. 


 Wasp and Hornets are common in the Dallas/Fortworth area. Hurd's  Pest Control can easily take care of most infestations from these  insects. Some of these insects may be covered under general pest  control, but hornets nest may require a special visit. Our office  personel can easily determine what service is needed and schedule our  technicians to take care of the problem.  


 The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is a small species of  cockroach, typically about 1.1 to 1.6 cm (0.43 to 0.63 in)[1][2] long.  In colour it varies from tan to almost black, and it has two dark,  roughly parallel, streaks on the pronotum running anteroposteriorly from  behind the head to the base of the wings. Although Blattella germanica  has wings, it can barely fly, although it may glide when disturbed.[3]  Of the few species of cockroach that are domestic pests, it probably is  the most widely troublesome example.[4] It is very closely related to  the Asian cockroach, and to the casual observer the two appear nearly  identical and may be mistaken for each other. However, the Asian  cockroach is attracted to light and can fly rather like a moth, while  the German cockroach cannot. 


 Raccoons will get in your attic or crawlspace and chew/ tear up  your ductwork, insulation, wiring etc. and have been known to get into  the living area by digging through the ceiling or coming down through  the hot water closet. This result of this activity are very expensive  repairs and or replacement. They also leave their feces, urine and fleas  behind when they depart. 


 Only two groups of spiders are considered poisonous to humans.   They are recluse spiders and widow spiders.   Tarantulas, jumping  spiders, wolf spiders and some other spiders are hairy and  formidable-looking, but their bite is typically less harmful than a bee  sting.There are nearly 1,000 species of spiders found in Texas, but only  a few are harmful to humans.  Most are beneficial, feeding on pests of  agricultural crops ants and mosquitoes that they ensnare in their silken  traps. 


 Scorpions hide during the day and become active at night.  Their  bodies are flat and they hide in small cracks, and under stones, bark  and other objects to wait for prey.  They eat small insects, spiders,  centipedes, and other scorpions.The most common scorpion in our area is  the Striped Bark scorpion which can grow up to about 2 ½ inches long.  Striped Bark scorpions have two broad, black stripes running the length  of their back and a dark triangular mark on the front of the head above  the eyes. 


 Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of  hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles,  amphibians, and even some kinds of fish.Though the loss of blood is  seldom of any importance to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often  causes an irritating rash that is a serious nuisance. Much more serious  though, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of  diseases. In passing from host to host, some transmit extremely harmful  infections such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus,  dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus and other arboviruses, rendering it  the deadliest animal family in the world.
