JAPANESE BEETLES

Japanese Beetles are one of those pests that everyone knows about because they are so destructive.

Year after year in June, Japanese Beetles take over our homes here in Omaha Nebraska and destroy everything in sight. They eat everything including the flowers in your gardens, all sorts of fruit, and the leaves from the trees in the neighborhoods. They will also chew all of the roots in your grass causing it to turn brown and die.

Now is the time to get ready for these destructive pests because if you wait too long, it’ll be too late. You do not want to procrastinate fortifying your home against these destructive bugs. For help keeping Japanese Beetles off of your property and to take care of them if they’re already there, visit our website at https://reconpestservices.com/pests/beetles or call us at (402)22-RECON.

MUD DAUBERS

Mud Daubers (sometimes called “dirt digger”, “dirt diver”, “dirt dauber”, or “mud wasp”) are a type of wasp that we are constantly seeing here in Omaha Nebraska.

These wasps are look similar to other wasps with their black and yellow color, but are set aside by their long, slender, threat-like waists. These wasps build their nests in the form of cylindrical tubes that are only about the size of a lemon. These wasps are very rarely aggressive and spend most their time finding food which comes in the form of flower nectar. They will also stock their nests with spiders which they will serve as food for their offspring. They particularly like immature black widow spiders and will hunt them. Although these wasps are rarely aggressive, they can be dangerous so we encourage you to contact professionals to take care of them. If you are having problems with Mud Daubers, visit our website at https://reconpestservices.com or call us at (402)22-RECON.

IN2CARE MOSQUITO BUCKET

Introducing our new In2Care Mosquito Buckets! These buckets effectively take care of mosquito problems and are perfect for places with standing water!

These buckets are the perfect remedy for any and all mosquito problems! With its technology, it attracts all mosquitoes especially egg-laying females who land on a floater and continue to lay their eggs in the bucket. As they hold on to the floater, while laying their eggs, they are picking up two different contaminants that are on the floater. One of these is a non transmittable fungus that kills the mosquito within a couple days. The other contaminant is a larvicide. This larvicide kills all the mosquito larvae in the bucket. When the mosquito leaves the bucket and chooses another place to lay its eggs, it brings the larvicide with it. When the mosquito starts laying its eggs in the new breeding location, it also deposits small amounts of the larvicide into the water which in turn, contaminates the water and kills the eggs just laid along with any other mosquito eggs and larva that were already there. With this bucket, we control mosquito breeding within 4,300 square feet. These mosquito buckets are an extremely effective way to take care of all of your mosquito problems!

ANTS

Ants are one of those pests that never seem to go away. They are seen everywhere outside and once they get inside, they seem to never leave. It can seem as if your home really is theirs. But did you know that there is an entire social structure of ants that don’t even come out of their nest and are never seen?

This is an aluminum casting of an ant hill. Only one of the three types of ants will ever leave this nest. The type of ant that will leave the nest are the worker ants who do all of the work inside and outside of the nest. We typically see them as they go outside to forage for food and to built their nest. All of these ants are female. Then there is the queen ant which is responsible for laying all of the eggs as no other female ant will lay eggs. The queen usually lives deep in the nest as protection from predators and can live up to 30 years depending on the species. The last type of ant in a colony are the drones. These are the only males in the colony and are solely responsible for mating with the queen and will die soon after. You will most likely never see a male ant.

Even though there is only one caste of ant that you will ever see, there are thousands of them. They are found everywhere and can turn into huge nuisances. If you have an ant problem, visit our website at https://reconpestservices.com or call us at (402)22-RECON

RODENT BOXES

One of the biggest battles home owners fight in Omaha is against various types of rodents. Whether it be mice, rats, or voles, rodents are a constant problem that is faced. They dig into food, leave droppings in drawers, ruin lawns, and can even transmit diseases to your family. There are many ways to get rid of these pests including traps, cats, and sprinkling poison around your property. While poison is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of rodents, it can create danger for your animals as well as children that may accidentally come in contact with it. That is where we come in.

As is shown above, we use rodent boxes to take care of all of the voles, mice, and rats you may have. Inside these secure boxes is placed our product. There are entry points into the box that are big enough for the rodents you’re dealing with to get inside to the product, but too small for your pets or children to come in contact with it. This is a safe and efficient way to take care of any rodents you are dealing with on your property. To learn more about rats and mice or voles, visit our website at https://reconpestservices.com or call us at (402)22-RECON.
