    Problems That Your Pest Control Company Will Help You Deal With – MassNews - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Whether you are a homeowner or own a commercial building, you will need to hire a pest control company at one point, either as a routine maintenance exercise or an emergency pest control exercise.

    By killing and dealing with the different types of pests like cockroaches, mice, rats, flies, mosquitoes, fleas, and spiders, there are a lot of problems that pest control companies can solve for you, including;

    Pests like termites and mice can cause damage to the wooden parts of your house like the wooden frames and drywalls.

    Termites are the most fatal because they feed on cellulose materials in those wooden parts of your house and create fungus that can not only cause rot but also cause those parts to fall off. Rats, on the other hand, make holes in your buildings walls, and you may not even notice them.

    However, the continuous defecation and urination on your walls will not only damage them but also cause foul smells around your house. To eliminate the termites, the pest control company may use localized treatments, but some buildings may require a tenting process.

    The mice can be captured using traps or poison them using food baits.

    Once you notice any pests or rodents in your house, the first instinct is to use pesticides, some of which can be very expensive.

    Also, the damages caused by the pests will need to be repaired, and in some cases, you might need to buy new items, like clothes, bedding, and sofas, damaged by those pests and rodents.

    Paying a pest control company for maintenance checks will not only help save you time but also the money you would have otherwise spent on the repairs.

    It also saves you the time you would have spent cleaning the pests droppings, dead bugs, and fallout from all the damages caused.

    Pests like mosquitoes, flies, and spiders are commonly known for spreading diseases and illnesses not only among you and your family but also among your pets. Calling a pest control company to deal with them before they spread can help eliminate the chances of getting any illnesses.

    Flies cause illnesses like cholera and typhoid by contaminating your foods and drinks. While you can eliminate the flies using traps, there are chances that you will leave their eggs all over your buildings surfaces, and the cycle will keep going.

    However, a pest control company will not only deal with the flies but also their eggs. Fleas also spread illness, especially in your pests, and if they come into contact with you, they might spread that illness.

    Spiders are also very dangerous as their bites could be fatal and lead to death. While dealing with pests on your own, you tend to use a lot of pesticides, which also cause some diseases especially respiratory diseases.

    However, if a pest control company comes and fumigates and deep cleans your once, it will take a long time before any pests come back to your home.

    Ever tried sleeping in a bug-infested bed or a house full of mosquitos? Well, you are not going to have a lot of sleep because youll spend the whole night itching and scratching, which will be not only uncomfortable but also painful.

    Bugs are some of the most difficult pests to deal with, but a pest control company will ensure the problem is gone. Depending on the level of infestation, they may use different ways to deal with them or recommend that you get rid of your bedding and replace them with new ones.

    You can also be sure that the noises you hear from rats and the bites from mosquitoes will be gone after the pest control company thoroughly inspects and cleans your building.

    The US structural pest control market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the period 20212026 – GlobeNewswire - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    New York, Feb. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "U.S. Structural Pest Control Market - Industry Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026" -

    The U.S. structural pest control market share is highly affected owing to the frequent outbreak of infectious diseases. Since the rapid spread of COVID-19 in the US, maintaining health and hygiene for personal wellness has gained momentum. As the disease is highly contagious, it has become crucial for residential, commercial, and industrial places to maintain the highest standards of hygiene to ensure public and employee safety. There is an increased demand for pest control services from medical centers, public offices, educational institutions, hotels, and restaurants. Another important factor contributing to the growth of the market in the US is the introduction of digital and smart pest control technology. Although the penetration of digital technology is currently low, it is expected to gain momentum soon with the growth in the U.S. structural pest control market.

    The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the U.S. structural pest control market during the forecast period: Continuous Outbreak of Diseases Demand for Digital Pest Control Methods Increase in Pest Intolerance Demand for Vector Control Services

    The study considers the present scenario of the U.S. structural pest control market and its market dynamics for the period 2020?2026. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The report offers both the demand and supply aspects of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent ones operating in the market.

    U.S. Structural Pest Control Market Segmentation The U.S. structural pest control market research report includes a detailed segmentation by type, method, application, geography. High affordability of general pest control services is one of the major factors influencing the growth of the segment. The growing incidence of pest infestation has increased the demand for these services. General pest control services are largely based on the usage of low-toxic chemicals and mechanical devices, which help to reduce the growth of ants, mosquitoes, and rodents. Rodent elimination services are observing a spike among consumers as rodents alone are responsible for several disorders, including gastric diseases. Connected devices and remote monitoring systems for rodents are opening opportunities for services and customers.

    Easy availability and high cost-effectiveness are the major reasons responsible for the high adoption of chemical and mechanical methods. The spread of the COVID-19 virus across the US has driven service providers to opt for chemicals that are effective against coronavirus. Owing to the high efficiency, vendors are focusing on developing effective chemicals with the fusion of ethyl alcohol. Chemical methods are more popular than mechanical ones as they are highly effective in insect extermination and are less complicated. They are highly preferred in commercial and industrial industries, especially in workplaces, hospitals, and manufacturing units because this application method is efficient for large rooms and preventive facilities.

    The demand for pest control services from the residential sector is projected to be high in the US during the forecast period. In the industrial sector, a majority of industries have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, and hence pest control services are expected to decline for the short term, particularly in the logistics industry. In the commercial sector, office spaces, coworking spaces, and travel and hospitality shut down, and hence the overall services were impacted during Q1 & Q2 2020. However, with the reopening of commercial and industrial activities in the country, the market is expected to revive soon, bringing opportunities for vendors in the US. Residential-sector plague infestation is increasing, especially in high-density areas such as metropolitan cities, where population mobility is currently high.

    INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY The non-availability of hygiene maintenance systems such as vacuum systems in a majority of houses in Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland is increasing adoption of pest control services in the Northeast region. The region also hosts several skyscrapers, especially in New York, that is likely to drive the demand for these services. The overall market dynamics for structural pest control services remain supportive and are likely to witness a ramp-up in demand. New York is one of the high potential cities for pest control firms.

    Geography US o Northeast o Midwest o West o South

    INSIGHTS BY VENDORS Rollins, Terminix, Ecolab, Anticimex, and Rentokil are the major pest control companies in the US. The U.S. structural pest control market is extremely competitive, therefore an approach to acquire well-established, leading firms, is often adopted to expand in the market. The market, on the whole, is growing steadily due to the rise of the bed bug infestation in the US, with an annual growth projection of bed bugs at around 2.9%. As part of the inorganic growth policy, vendors are engaging in M&As to extend their reach to other states and increase their revenue and profit margins. These inorganic projects supplement vendors organic growth strategies and thus provide access to a broader client base.

    Organic ins and outs – Good Fruit Grower - February 9, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Organic certification can boost grower returns, but growers considering a transition should think about pest control challenges and the marketing opportunities available for organic pears, such as these organic Bosc near Mesa, Washington, photographed in July 2015. (TJ Mullinax/Good Fruit Grower)

    Organic pears can sell for about $10 more per box, but for growers interested in transitioning Bartletts and Anjous to organic, theres a lot more to consider than just the potential for higher returns.

    A panel of growers shared their perspective on shifting to organic pear production during the Washington Tree Fruit Associations annual meeting in December: citing pest and disease pressure, nutrient management and marketing opportunities.

    Our organic customers only want certain sizes and grades, said Jason Matson of Matson Fruit Co., located in Selah, Washington. Otherwise its sold as conventional and then whats the benefit? Youll be sinking expensive organic dollars and getting a conventional return.

    While almost 20 percent of Washingtons pear orchards were certified as organic by 2019, just 14 percent of the product was sold as organic that year, according to Washington State University emeritus professor David Granatstein, who tracks organic trends. Theres only so much demand for organic pears.

    Don Gibson, president of Mount Adams Fruit, agreed that growers should consult their marketers before transitioning to organic. If you are growing something like a third-grade Anjou, it has no home in the organic world, he said. You need to have the fruit your marketing department wants.

    As a vertically integrated fruit company, Mount Adams needs organic pears in its portfolio, even though organic orchards dont always generate larger returns. The organic price premium fluctuates, Gibson said, and packouts can be a little lower than conventional blocks due to russet that stems from fire blight control, but retail customers want some organic in the mix.

    For individual growers, however, the calculations look a little different, said Ray Schmitten, a pear grower from Dryden, Washington, and a horticulturist for Blue Star Growers who described ups and downs of profitability in the decades he worked as an organic consultant.

    Theres a margin of benefit, but every organic block Ive been involved with, weve got to the point of diminishing returns, he said. In his region, its hard to manage nitrogen to keep fruit size up for the long term without applying conventional fertilizer.

    If my fruit size is declining, Id better get out of organic certification, Schmitten said. We love the ideology of it but cant afford to lose the farm for the ideology.

    Before getting into organic, Matson said growers should consider whether their primary pest challenges could be managed organically and reckon with their record-keeping abilities. Organic audits are thorough, he said.

    All three panelists recommended transitioning established blocks, even if the block was planted specifically for organic production. Gibson said that using conventional tools such as Apogee (prohexadione calcium) in the establishment years can help the pears get into higher-volume production faster, and then they transition.

    Schmitten recommended setting up orchards with the option to do overhead wash systems, which reduce the fruit damage from psylla. That helps growers to transition to an organic or IPM psylla control program that largely relies on natural enemies. He said that even when he transitions a block back to conventional to boost fruit size with conventional fertilizer and resume weed spraying, hell pretty much stick to the organic pest program to protect the natural enemies.

    Pest control is the easy part. Once we build up the predators, we spend the same as conventional, Schmitten said.

    Nitrogen and vigor management pose the top organic challenge in North Central Washington, he said, while Gibson said in the Mid-Columbia, fire blight management is the top threat to organic blocks.

    Rodent control can be an issue everywhere, panelists said.

    After leaf drop, well go through with the brush rake and rake all the garbage from the weed strip into the center of the rows so its not right next to the trunks, Matson said. That relocates the prime rodent habitat away from the trees, at least.

    As of 2019, Washington had 4,200 acres of pears certified organic, according to Granatsteins data. Thats up from just over 2,000 in 2015. Bartletts account for 38 percent of the acreage, with Anjous at 33 percent and Bosc at 15 percent.

    Is that the top of the market? Perhaps.

    The market is inelastic, Schmitten said. When we first really got into organics in the mid-90s, one orchard came in and saturated the market.

    The growers he works with through Blue Star want to stick with organic for Bartletts where they can, but less so with Bosc and Anjou.

    While the panel billed itself as a discussion on what growers should consider if they want to get into organics, its just as important to know when to get out, Schmitten and Matson stressed.

    When disease or pest pressure is so bad you have to break out the conventional hammer to get control back before you lose it, Matson said. And when the market is just too small. Pears are a niche item in themselves. Organic pears are a niche of a niche. Organic Seckel or Red Anjous are a niche of a niche of a niche. Retailers dont want these too nichey varieties.

    Silverfish: What they are, how to get rid of them, health risks – Medical News Today - February 9, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Silverfish are small insects that can infest a home. Although they are not dangerous, they can damage property and trigger allergies. A person can try several natural and chemical methods to get rid of them before contacting a professional pest control service.

    Silverfish are a type of wingless insect that lives worldwide, including throughout the United States.

    They tend to occupy gardens in places with high moisture levels, such as under piles of leaves or wood or in gutters.

    Silverfish can find their way into a persons home through gaps, cracks, and holes in the buildings exterior, and they can cause damage to both the building and peoples possessions.

    This article explains what silverfish are and how to get rid of them.

    Silverfish get their name from the color of their scales, which are silver or metallic brown.

    Their bodies are long typically 1219 millimeters and fish-like, and they have six legs and two antennae.

    Silverfish are also called bristletails because they have three long bristles on the end of their body.

    People most often find them in moist or humid places, such as bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, or attics, but they can be present anywhere in the home. They are nocturnal, which means that they are most active at night.

    Silverfish feed on the sugar and starch in a range of household items, such as books, photographs, documents, and wallpaper.

    Soap, hair, dandruff, and dust can also be food sources for silverfish, along with glue, clothing, silk, cotton, and linen.

    These insects can also eat dried beef products and even other silverfish. Other food products that they can eat include:

    Silverfish are shy insects and will hide from humans. They cannot fly or bite, but they can run very quickly.

    They can also breed very rapidly, which means that infestations can quickly escalate.

    According to The Wildlife Trusts in the United Kingdom, people may see silverfish in the home all year round.

    Silverfish can cause damage to homes and property, and they can sometimes trigger a persons allergies.

    A 2015 study into different types of indoor allergens noted that a person who has an allergy to silverfish might experience respiratory symptoms.

    The scales that silverfish shed contain a protein called tropomyosin, which can combine with other allergens and sometimes cause allergic reactions. A person may also be allergic to silverfish droppings.

    Silverfish can also contaminate food products, such as flour and meat.

    According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), the signs of a silverfish infestation include:

    People can use various techniques to tackle a silverfish infestation, including both chemical and natural methods.

    Silverfish can be picky when it comes to eating bait, and commercial baits often do not work against silverfish.

    Additionally, silverfish can survive for a very long time without eating or drinking, which means that they will not resort to eating bait because of hunger.

    People should only use insecticides for large infestations, and they will not work while suitable habitats remain available to the silverfish.

    Even if people remove these habitats, insecticides can take a few weeks to work.

    Experts note that sprays that include the following ingredients can be effective against silverfish:

    In one study, commercial bait formulations that included 0.05% or 0.20% chlorfenapyr were the most effective in killing silverfish.

    A person should always follow the instructions on these chemical products to ensure their safety. They should also check that they are allowed to use them in their chosen environment and in their state.

    People should also not use chemicals in areas where they may contaminate food or water or where children or pets may accidentally consume them.

    Some people may prefer to try natural methods of eliminating a silverfish infestation before they use chemicals. In this case, the first steps involve reducing the amount of moisture and humidity in the area in which the silverfish are living.

    A person can use a dehumidifier to reduce the humidity to levels that make the area uninhabitable for silverfish.

    If there are dark places for silverfish to live, clearing out these spaces will reduce the number of places they can use to shelter.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that the following natural ingredients can repel silverfish:

    Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a powder made of fossilized algae. It dehydrates silverfish if they come into contact with it and will eventually kill them.

    Sprinkling DE in affected areas can be beneficial in controlling a small infestation, and it is safe for humans and pets.

    Traps that use sticky tape or boric acid can be helpful for small infestations. However, boric acid is harmful to humans and pets if they ingest it.

    If a person discovers a silverfish infestation, and chemical baits or natural methods are ineffective in eliminating it, they can call their local licensed pest control professional.

    The pest control professional will recommend an appropriate treatment.

    Reducing the number of environments suitable for silverfish to live in is an easy way of preventing them from entering the home.

    Removing piles of wet leaves and keeping wood off the ground and away from the home can encourage silverfish to find shelter elsewhere.

    Sealing up any gaps, cracks, and holes in basements, attics, foundations, or outer walls can prevent silverfish from finding ways into the home.

    Eliminating any damp areas in the home can also discourage silverfish from settling inside.

    Keeping basements, attics, bathrooms, and kitchens clean and dry will help prevent them from living in these rooms.

    People can also remove food sources for silverfish, such as dust and debris, by cleaning out closets and cupboards and dusting bookshelves.

    To prevent silverfish from getting into food products, the NPMA recommend storing the products in glass or plastic airtight containers.

    Earwigs, centipedes, and spiders are natural predators of silverfish. Letting house spiders remain in the home can keep the number of silverfish down naturally.

    Silverfish do not bite humans or animals, do not carry disease, and are not poisonous.

    However, they have the potential to spread germs if they come in from the outside and contaminate food.

    Silverfish are insects that do not pose significant threats to humans.

    Although they can trigger allergies in some people, they do not bite or spread disease.

    Silverfish have a well-earned reputation for causing significant damage to buildings and possessions, so it is important to get a silverfish infestation under control quickly to minimize the damage that they cause.

    People can try a range of methods to get rid of a silverfish infestation, including reducing their habitats within the home, using chemical baits, or opting for natural methods such as DE and traps.

    If these attempts prove unsuccessful, professional pest control services should be able to help.

    FDA’s data for 2020 shows top five violation categories at food facilities – Food Safety News - February 9, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    The FDAs Inspection Observation Data for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020, depicting how frequently particular violations were found during food facility inspections between October 2019 and September 2020, are out.

    Hampton, VA-based Registrar Corp. did this breakdown of the data from the Food and Drug Administration and provided analysis of the top five violation categories cited by FDA inspectors during FY 2020:

    1. Foreign supplier compliance programsUnder the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), FDA requires most food importers to develop and maintain Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVPs) for their suppliers. The requirement is designed to help ensure that suppliers are FDA compliant and are producing food in a safe manner.

    During FSVP inspections, the FDA expectsimporters to present complete FSVPs thatadequately assure suppliers food safety.In FY 2020, the FDA cited 514 facilities forfailing to develop an FSVP. While mostfood facility inspections were halted for the majority of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA continued to conduct FSVP inspections remotely. FSVP citations increased by 51 percent compared to 2019. This is the third year in a row that failure to develop an FSVP was the top-cited inspection violation.

    2. Hazard analysisIn 2020, the FDA cited 104 cases where facilities failed to provide adequate hazard analysis. The agency requires most food facilities to identify potential biological, chemical, or physical hazards that may occur at the facility as well as establish preventive controls for those hazards. This is another way the FDA ensures that facilities are maintaining food safety protocols.

    These hazards can vary. For example, a facility can identify that it is possible for pathogens to surviveprocessing intended to eliminate them. Alternatively, the facility can identify areas where inadequate cleaning of equipment can lead to allergen cross-contact.

    3. Pest ControlDuring facility inspections, the FDA inspectors search for signs of potential pest infestations. The FDA cited 98 facilities for failure to prevent pests within their food facility or for misusing pesticides in a way that could cause potential food contamination.

    4. Manufacturing controlsManufacturing, processing, packing, and holding controls account for 95 of 2020s food facility citations. This citation indicates that a facility did not conduct operations under conditions that would minimize the chances for potential microorganism growth, allergen cross-contamination, or contamination and deterioration of food. FDA requires facilities to provide controlled environments when handling food products to avoid potential health risks to consumers.

    5. PersonnelThe fifth most cited violation during food inspections in FY 2020 were personnel issues. These can include failing to address hygiene issues or other good manufacturing practices in relation to employees handling of food products. The FDA issued 87 citations for this violation.

    Sanitation citationsWhile no sanitation citations made it into the top five on their own, sanitation citations make up a significant portion of the FY 2020 violations when combined with other violations. For example:

    Preparing for FY 2021While FSVP violations saw a significant increase, the other top citations were issued fewer times in FY 2020 than in FY 2019. This is likely because of the temporary postponement of most food facility inspections in 2020 as a result of COVID 19.

    For 2020, FDA food facility registrations totaled 241,567 worldwide.Registrations for 2021 are off about 25 percent at 182,147.
