So you zoom in there, this is a nymph the reason why we know its a nymph its wings aren’t fully developed, in fact you can’t see wings in that at all right now it’s fairly good size though it’s a little confusing because it looks like this
nymph looks like certain adults of other species
this nymph actually resembles a little bit the adult of an oriental and
also the adult of a Turkistan but if you look at this nymph it actually
has horizontal lines on the back here which is a tell-tale sign of the American Cockroach so this is the actual adult American Cockroach fully grown and interestingly enough it again this
is actually almost the same size of the nymph we just picked up a moment ago so it’s not much bigger than the other one but, again
you’ll notice the wings on it on the American Cockroach there are full wings they go pass the bottom of the roach and American Cockroaches are a little darker in color then some of the other species that look
similar to this again Turkistan roaches are found in
Phoenix and they look very similar to this the females actually look different so a lot
of times you’ll see an adult male, a Turkistan roach that looks like this and
a female which will look like an Oriental Roach that’s how you identify the Turkistan this one we didn’t find any female to resemble this so we are confident this an
American Roach problem here at this home in Phoenix.
*Laughter* Crowd: OOH! That’s rough. None of these things are exactly like a skateboard. Who’s this guy? Brett is from Georgia He was out here in the early days He played the Battlefield soldier in The Glitch Brett was in Footlose, and how he’s back in L.A.

I got a wasp
infestation here and 1 of those
bugger’s stung me. So, I’m gonna get even. Well, spray adhesive
gets them stuck but… Its not killing them. My workshop here is
a complete mess. But, I’ve got this blower
here that I built ages ago. And I’ve already got a screen
on it from my last experiment. I dug out my jigsaw and
drill from the mess And I made this thing here which the hose will attach to. It’s the Wasp
Sucking Machine XL. So the idea is, not so much,
to suck them out of the nest. but to suck them as
they’re airborne near the entrance, so
whenever they come back especially, they get all
sucked in the hole. Unfortunately, on
this machine, I don’t have a window to
watch the catch. Been running for hours now.
Let’s see. Oh wow. These guys are really
trying to get out but they can’t
overcome the suction. Holy crap! Good thing none of
them’s making it out. Well, I really couldn’t think
of a good way of killing them. So I just left them
in there for 5 days and lets see what happened. Well… Looks pretty quite
and dead in there. Not that huge a catch. Oh look!
There’s 1 live one. Better do something about that. Uh oh. Seems like 5 days wasn’t
enough for all of them to die. There’s still some
buzzing around. And here’s the site of the nest. There’s still a little
bit of activity here. So I guess I may have to
repeat my experiment.
This cockroach belongs to the order Orthoptera,
family Blattidae, and genus Periplaneta. This insect is commonly called the American cockroach.
We mostly know cockroaches as pests. Only a small number of all known cockroach species,
however, become pests by invading houses and other buildings. Cockroaches are more common
in warm climates. They live in many different terrestrial habitats, such as among dead and
decaying leaves and wood, under stones or bark of trees, and in tall trees. They are
active and fast-running insects. Cockroaches may have one pair of thick, leathery wings
covering their bodies for protection. It has another pair of membranous flying wings underneath.
Cockroaches are ancient and highly successful insects. They have been on Earth for at least
350 million years! Their closest relatives are believed to be the mantids.
Like all insects, cockroaches have three body parts: a head, a thorax, and an abdomen. Cockroaches
have three pairs of legs. The legs, which are adapted for walking and running, are attached
to the thorax. In the adults, the wings are also attached at the thorax.
The head is covered by a plate-like structure called a pronotum. The antennae are very long
and are used for detecting food, predators, and changes in temperature. Watch the cockroach
cleaning its antennae. Cockroaches are omnivorous which means that
they eat just about anything. A cockroach’s mouth organs include jaws that are used to
chew food pieces. Cockroaches like other arthropods have compound
eyes. Compound eyes have many lenses for each eye and human eyes have a single lens for
each eye. The compound eye is excellent at detecting motion. Therefore, insects respond
better to moving objects than to stationary ones.
Cockroaches are hemimetabolous insects. This means that they undergo incomplete metamorphosis.
Cockroaches have an egg stage, several nymph stages, and an adult stage.
The insect’s hard exoskeleton makes it difficult for the insect to grow. This is because the
exoskeleton can’t get larger. Insects must molt in order to grow. Molting is the process
where an insect sheds it outer skeleton. The insect emerges from the old skin, and a new,
larger exoskeleton develops.

Hi, I’m Trevor with Monster Pest Control,
located in American Fork, Utah. We’re talking today about ridding your house of insects.
The topic is how to rid your house of fleas naturally. A couple of things when you’re
doing with the naturally you can use diatomaceous earth, and with the diatomaceous earth you
go around window seals, you treat around all the window seals, doorways, as well as baseboard
areas; treating all of those areas, and also treating your pets, animals, cats. All of
this, making sure that you’re always mindful, especially being inside, of any aquatic animals,
fish or birds. Cover them and or shut off their motors. Also, with fleas you need to
make sure you vacuum very thoroughly around all the crevices in your carpeted areas. You
can rub the diatomaceous earth into the carpet as well, but making sure you vacuum it. Generally,
you want to leave the house for a few hours after you’ve done any of this treatment; try
to minimize your steps walking on the carpets.
TECHNICIAN: I’ve noticed that
bed bugs are a big concern with
a lot of our customers these days. And considering how much news coverage
they’ve gotten recently,
it doesn’t surprise me. I get calls from people either
coming home from a family vacation
or some work-related travel. And they notice the bites, they’re alarmed.
And I don’t blame them. Recently I treated the home of this woman. She had been bitten over 100 times
in the middle of the night. One night. Can you imagine that? Hi. How are you? Hi. I’m Brad from Terminix. Nice to meet you. Come on in. When we got married,
I told my husband I want to travel. I want to see as many places as we can see. You know like all over. But this last time was bad. I woke up scratching
and covered in bite marks. CUSTOMER: Bedroom just this way
It was really terrible. But yes I’d say that you are
at more risk than most. Simply because of the amount
of travel you and your husband do. So, we should probably
give you some tips
on how to check your
hotel room for infestation. That would be great. [GRAPHIC] TIPS FOR TRAVELERS CHECK BEHIND HEADBOARDS IN MATTRESS SEAMS [PAUSE] BEDDING FOLDS AND TUCKS KEEP LUGGAGE OFF THE GROUND And just so you know for bed bugs
we have a very effective treatment
called RapidFreeze. What we do is we freeze the insects
with carbon dioxide. And that takes care
of the eggs and the nymphs as well. And it’s perfectly safe. You can
leave all your electronics in the room. And the best part,
it can all be done in an afternoon. Wow. That quick? And it is guaranteed for 30 days. And if you purchase a mattress cover,
the guarantee is good for 90 days. That sounds great. [GRAPHIC] SIGNS OF INFESTATION BITE SYMPTOMS SMALL BROWN FECAL SPOTS ON BEDDING
SMALL BLOOD SMEARS ON SHEETS TECHNICIAN: Okay. So no bed bugs. I thoroughly checked the room.
Including your mattress, mattress seams,
pillow shams, and your picture frames. I was a little nervous
because our last trip was to New York,
and it seemed like they got hit the hardest. You’re right, but
there are many other cities
reporting serious bed bug issues right now. So you’ve got to be diligent. [GRAPHIC] CITIES REPORTING INFESTATIONS NEW YORK, BOSTON, CINCINNATI, CHICAGO
COLOUMBUS, WASHINGTON DC, DETROIT
LOS ANGELES, LOUISVILLE, DAYTON, PHILIDELPIA A BED BUG CAN TAKE IN
6 TIMES ITS WEIGHT IN BLOOD “FEEDINGS” CAN TAKE 3 TO 10 MINUTES If you do find yourself with a problem,
give us a call immediately. If you see small brown spots
actually it’s fecal matter on your bedding. Or small blood smears on your sheets –
yah I know. I know. But even then we can take care of it. There’s a reason Terminix
has been around for 80 years. This has been a real eye opener for me. I’m going to take charge and
always check my hotel room for bed bugs. Because I do not want
bed bugs in my house. Ever. Not at all. Thank you so much for stopping by.
It was nice to meet you. Thank you. Thank you.
We’ll see you soon. CUSTOMER: But I know that
if some of them do hitch
a ride home with me. I can call Terminix. And that’s a good thing.
And I can tell some of my friends too. It’s good to be proactive. And I tell people all the time, “You know, don’t wait until the problem
gets too big to control.” Don’t be dismissive.
And this lady, she did the right thing. [GRAPHIC] TERMINIX® Power over pests.®
Got ants here in the kitchen.
As you can see. And 1 of the tricks I’ve found, if there’s
only 1 or 2 ants it’s really hard to find where they are coming from, you spray them
it does not do any good. So what I do is I put some sugar or such and
when a whole lot accumulate. And they establish an ant trail, then I follow
the ant trail back to the nest. Here’s a little trick: If the trail is too
sparse to follow, blow on the group a little or just breath on them and they will start
scurrying back to the nest in a solid line. Makes it a lot easier to follow. Watch.
(Sound of light breath) And there they go.
They go off streaming in a solid line. Here they are, let’s follow them.
Looping back around. Go through here, don’t know if you can see
them in the shadows. Up the wall.
Keep them in focus. Up the wall, up the wall.
Where they get on this brown wood where you can’t see them. They are pretty smart.
Up here. Can’t see them very well.
You can see them crossing here. If you follow them they go back in that corner.
They go up inside, right in that little hole. I’ve got 2 things I need to do.
Spray them and patch that hole. If you leave the sugar out after your remediation
attempts, you can see if you were successful.
I’ve tried spraying once and they are still coming back very strong.
This is several hours later. Obviously where I sprayed is not the key nest.
I need to go back and try again. I’ve done a second remediation and as you
can see the number of ants has come down seriously. So I think I got the nest.
That’s all there is to it, a couple tricks to hunt down ant nests.
Hope you found it interesting.
