Arizona has some pretty terrible home invading pests. Obviously the scariest to many is the Scorpion. Green Magic Pest Control prides itself on Scorpions and has never failed yet at taking care of any pest problems we have been confronted with. Listed below are some of the common pests that you can expect to find in the valley.
Scientific Family Name: Formicidae
When it comes to harmful insects, ants aren’t usually on that list but they sure are unpleasant when they find their way into your home or yard. A few ants almost always means a large colony hiding somewhere. Ants are very organized and each ant usually has a specific job. Scouts are responsible for looking for new sources of food for the colony. Once they find that source such as that open bag of bread in your cabinet or crumbs in your pantry, its almost inevitable that you’ll be dealing with a never ending battle since you’ll most likely only be dealing with the ones you see and not the ones in the walls, gaps, or soil outside. Green Magic specializes in finding and eliminating the source of the problem to get rid of the issue and prevent future infestations from happening.
Scientific Family Name: Cimicidae
Bed bugs can cause a paranoia like no other bug. They can make their way into a home through some of the tiniest spaces or cracks or even from your luggage. A bite from a bed bug is usually painless at first, but will later turn into a large itchy welt. The carbon we exhale at night attracts them to us and they will usually feed on any exposed area of skin. Bed bugs can hide nearly anywhere, and an adult bed bug can live for nearly 5 months without a blood meal. For these reasons and many more, bed bugs are extremely difficult to control and a professional bed bug exterminator is needed to help eradicate them from your home. Green Magic will thoroughly inspect, treat, and eradicate them from your home while advising you on ways to help prevent future infestations.

Scientific Family Name: Blattidae, Ectobiidae
Most of us already know about these disgusting pests. The valley has a few different types of these which include the German roach, american roach, brown banded, and oriental roach. The american roach is also known as the sewer roach, and is generally found on the exterior of the home near water sources. American roaches do not typically come inside a home unless they are searching for food. The German roach is the worst of these pests, as they may be carrying diseases such as salmonella, e-coli and streptococcus and are also known to cause infestations. They usually take multiple treatments in order to completely eliminate the problem. Free inspections available for best identification of the type of cockroaches at your home.
Scientific Family Name: Scorpionidae
Here in the Valley of the Sun we have an overwhelming amount of Bark scorpions, which are considered the most venomous of all scorpion species. Most scorpion species can fit through a crack or space that is about 1-16th of an inch in size. They usually like to hide underneath rocks, woodpiles, trash cans, outside carpeted areas, inside irrigation boxes, at the base of bushes and trees, and even inside the cracks pillars on block walls. During the hot summer months they are extremely active and a female scorpion can have as many as 100 babies at once. The good news is we use organically derived products that actually kill them (not just their food source), and prevents them from entering into your home.
