The Crazy Ant is just one of over two hundred types of ants in California. Some of the main ones you will see are the Thief Ant, the Argentine Ant, the Red Ant, and the Pavement Ant. What works in getting rid of one type of ant may cause another type of ant to get defensive, produce more queens and set up more colonies in your walls, under your tile or in your yard.
Cockroaches can live one week without their heads. Although there are over four thousand types of roaches, there are only four main offenders in the Central Valley: the American, the Oriental, the German, and the Brown Banded Cockroach. Each have their own distinct look, lifespan, habits and most effect ways to control their population.
You can use your hairdryer to detect bed bugs. This trick works great on vacation if you stay in a hotel, log cabin, cruise ship, or a bed and breakfast. Bed bugs cannot survive high heat. Simply pull back the covers by the head board and use the hairdryer to heat the seams of the mattress for two to ten seconds. When a bed bug is hit by that hot air they will run. Something to consider if you do pick up a hitchhiker; stop by a laundromat to wash and dry everything on high heat, then place your luggage in sealed plastic bags.
