Mole Crickets can be a major problem for your lawn, Panama City,FL-Arrow Pest Service

As spring approaches, homeowners will probably begin to see an increase of pest activity due to the warmer weather.

While the vast majority of pest prevention is centered around protecting your home, it is important to note that some pests have another target in mind: your lawn.

Among the enemies that could potentially attack your lawn, one of the most destructive is the mole cricket. These pests can be a major problem for Florida homeowners, and it is important to know how to deal with them if they come after your lawn!

Mole cricket identification:

 Mole crickets are small, grey colored insects that can be identified by their velvety bodies and large front legs. These front legs are used for digging, and this allows mole crickets to burrow beneath the soil with ease.

Identifying a mole cricket infestation can be difficult due to their nocturnal feeding habits and reclusive nature. If they happen to be on the surface, they will usually be near the base of the grass, making them difficult to spot.

How mole crickets attack your lawn:

 Mole crickets are omnivores with a preference for feeding on grasses. In the fall, mole crickets will lay their eggs in burrows beneath the soil. These eggs will hatch at the beginning of spring, and the new mole cricket nymphs will begin to feed on the roots of grasses in your lawn.

This can quickly lead to large dead patches in your lawn that are both unsightly and actively reduce the overall health of the lawn. Homeowners will often first notice the dead spots in the lawn as the first sign of mole cricket activity.

Protecting your lawn from mole crickets:

 Mole crickets are attracted to lawns with large amounts of thatch. You can reduce thatch buildup on your lawn by practicing proper mowing techniques and not overdoing fertilizer or water usage. If you are are seeing signs of mole cricket activity around your lawn, your best bet is to call in the professionals.

Mattresses are a common hiding place for bed bugs-Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

When bed bugs infest your home, more often than not the infestation begins in and around your mattress.

Mattresses are the most common sites of bed bug infestation, and due to this preventing and removing bed bugs from your mattress is often a big part of treatment processes.

But why is the mattress so commonly infested? Put shortly, this is because the mattress serves to provide bed bugs with a secluded, dark hiding space that is also in close proximity to a source of blood. This creates the perfect environment for bed bug activity.

But how do bed bugs get onto your mattress to begin with?

 Bed bugs can gain access to your mattress in a variety of ways. Most commonly, bed bugs gain access to your home due to travel or by infesting used bedding, storage, or furniture that is then brought into the home.

You can probably imagine the scenarios in which this could occur. Coming in from a long trip, many people will bring their luggage into their bedroom before unpacking. If even a single bed bug has travelled inside the luggage, it could spread to the mattress. Once an infestation has begun, it is only a matter of time before a substantial population exists in the room.

If bed bugs have infested my mattress, how will I know?

Bed bugs are troublesome pests, and for this reason it is usually fairly easy to tell if they are active in your home. The first sign of their presence is usually the uncomfortable, red bite marks that they leave behind. It is important to note, however, that not everyone will react the same way to these bites. For some people, the bites will not show up for up to two days, and sometimes not at all.

If you start to see bites, you should investigate the mattress to identify other signs of bed bug activity. You can search around the mattress seams, beneath the bedding, and around the frame for signs of live bed bugs. Other common signs of their activity include:

  • Brown fecal stains, usually on the mattress itself
  • Small blood stains dotted on the sheets and linens
  • Cream colored egg shells beneath the mattress

Finding one or more of these signs can give you a good indication that bed bugs are active in your home. If you have identified clear signs of bed bug activity, you should call in a licensed pest control company to inspect your home as soon as possible.

How can I get rid of the bed bugs in my mattress?

 It is important to stress that, when it comes to bed bugs, professional assistance is almost always a requirement. Home remedies against bed bugs are generally ineffective, and most DIY treatment products only take care of a portion of the population.

Any effective bed bug treatment aims for 100% eradication. If any bed bugs are allowed to survive, they will eventually return in the future after rebuilding their population. To achieve the necessary level of treatment, it is usually necessary to employ professional grade pesticide treatments or to use a heat treatment method

Heat treatments can be very effective for mattresses because they are guaranteed to completely eradicate the population by raising the temperature to a point that is fatal to any bed bug.

 Pesticide treatments for bed bugs can also be very effective. The products designed to target bed bugs are complex, and are completely safe to homeowners when used per the instructions of the pest technician.

 Which treatment method is best for your home varies depending on a variety of environmental and situational factors. A skilled pest technician can use information gathered via inspection to formulate a safe, effective treatment plan for your home, and therefore your best option is to consult with your pest control provider.

What steps can I take to prevent future infestation?

When it comes to keeping your mattress bed bug free, the best option is to take preventative measures to avoid the situation to begin with. Homeowners should be cautious to avoid unintentionally bringing bed bugs into the home. To reduce the probability of bed bugs infesting your home, you should remember to: 

  • Inspect all luggage before bringing it into the home
  • Carefully check any used furniture and bedding linens
  • Reduce clutter in your home
  • Regularly clean linens, carpets, and furniture

These steps will help you to avoid inadvertently introducing bed bugs into your home. Homeowners should also schedule with their pest control provider for regular inspections. These inspections can often identify infestations in their early stages, and make the treatment process much simpler.

What is a heat treatment for bed bugs?, Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

Pest control is a complex, multistep process.

Each type of pest has its own treatment methodology, and the fact is even each individual home and infestation should be approached in its own specific manner to ensure the most effective results.

When it comes to bed bugs, this is even more important. Since bed bugs often infest areas of the home in which traditional pesticide treatment may be unwanted or ineffective, more creative solutions must often be devised. One such treatment option, so called heat treatments, can be very effective if used correctly.

So what are heat treatments? And how can they get rid of bed bugs?

 One of the greatest weaknesses that bed bugs have is their inability to withstand major temperature variations. As such, it is possible to eliminate bed bugs in an area by raising the temperature to a point higher than they can withstand. Typically, this point is somewhere between 115-125 degrees Fahrenheit.

There are different kinds of heat treatments based upon what you are treating, be it a home, luggage, or clothes and linens. We will discuss in a future article the details of each of these treatments, but the general focus of all heat treatments is to eliminate a bed bug infestation without having to resort to using pesticide treatments. This can be useful when dealing with infestations in sensitive areas or within valuable furniture, bags, or clothing.

Heat treatments can be very effective because it ensures that you eradicate all of the bed bugs rather, however it is less practical with larger infestations due to its expense. While heat treatment may very well be the best option for your home, you should make sure that any pest company offering it is one that you trust as it is an expensive investment.

If you are dealing with bed bugs, you need competent, professional assistance from a team with experience. At Arrow Pest Service, we have been battling bed bugs for decades! We have experience and capacity to deal with an infestation in any location and of any degree of severity!

How to prevent bed bugs from entering your home, Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

In the past couple of posts on our website, we have discussed how bed bugs can be a destructive pest in your home and we have covered a variety of tips and tricks homeowners can use to identify bed bugs.

But the fact is, preventing bed bugs from entering your home in the first place is a critical part to maintaining a pest free home. So we wanted to answer some of the more common questions about the process by which bed bugs travel between locations and what brings them into your home. So without further ado, here are our top tips for staying bed bug free!

  • Always check new spaces you stay in for bed bugs.

This mostly applies to travel. The most common way people pick up bed bugs is during travel. Oftentimes this occurs when staying in a hotel room, dormitory, or other residential space that has an active bed bug infestation. Bed bugs will often sneak into luggage and hide amongst your clothes or in other dark, secluded spaces, thus making travelers the unwitting transporter of a future infestation.

Due to this risk, it is always a good idea to check over any new room you stay in before unpacking. Most often, you will see signs of bed bug activity in common infestation areas such as around mattress seams, behind headboards, around linens, or on carpets and furniture. You should be looking for the signs of bed bug habitation, the most common sign being small black or brown dots and stains. If you notice these signs in your hotel room, you should notify the staff as soon as possible to prevent the infestation from spreading further.

  • Be cautious with used furniture.

While buying used furniture and decor can be a great part of a sustainable and fiscal lifestyle, homeowners should remember to check these items BEFORE bringing them into your home. Bed bugs can and will infest almost any furniture, and they will often hide quite carefully in small cracks and gaps. Due to this, you should check over any used furniture that you purchase to ensure that it is bed bug free so as to avoid bringing a hidden infestation into your home.

  • On the same note, double check your luggage when returning from travel.

As we stated earlier, human traffic is the primary way that bed bugs gain access to homes. Due to this you should carefully check your luggage after travel to ensure that you have not picked up any bed bugs or other pests along the way.

Bed bugs are a very tenacious pest with a rapid reproductive rate, and this means that even one or two bed bugs can potentially establish a large infestation in your home over time, so it is important to be cautious.

  • Finally, if you are at all concerned about potential bed bug activity in your home, schedule an inspection ASAP.

The fact is, bed bug treatment can be a long, frustrating process, and every day that the infestation is allowed to grow unchecked further compounds the problem. So if you are at all concerned that you could have bed bugs in your home, it is a good idea to have a licensed pest control company inspect your home and ensure that all is well. Not only can this allow you to detect and deal with a bed bug infestation early, it might also reveal the existence of conducive conditions that are allowing pests to thrive in your home.

We here at Arrow Pest Service are proud to be an industry leader in bed bug and other pest solutions for the greater Panama City area! We provide a wide range of safe, targeted treatment options that can deal with pests in your home quickly, efficiently, and completely!

How to inspect for bed bugs, Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

We have spoken at length about how important regular inspections are in the effort to keep your home pest free, but it is not often discussed how particular pests can be identified via inspection.

Bed bugs are an infamous pest, and if they are in your home it is extremely important to identify the evidence of their activity before they are able to establish a large infestation. The truth is, the signs of bed bug activity are very different from those of other pests, and you may need a skilled pest technician to identify evidence of their presence.

So the question is: what signs do pest technicians look for during an inspect, and why are inspections so important?

Because bed bugs grow to less than 5mm in length, they can squeeze into even the smallest cracks and crevices. This can make it difficult to identify signs of their activity. When a technician is inspecting your home, they are looking for signs leftover from bed bug activity rather than just the pests themselves.

Bed bugs often leave behind small brownish-black spots on pillows, mattresses, and linens, and these can help to lead the technician to the source of the infestation. Once they have checked in the more commonly infested spaces, a technician will also look in more unusual areas such as in boxes, around furniture, lamps, children’s toys, and anywhere else that could be harboring pests.

These types of inspections are very important because they allow the technician to gather information with which they can formulate a targeted treatment plan for your home. The location and severity of an infestation can play a large role in how it is dealt with, so you want to make sure that any company you call in is one that is committed to this critical step in treatment.


At Arrow Pest Service, we have decades of experience identifying and treating bed bug infestations! Our technicians are trained professionals, and we start every treatment process with a thorough inspection that allows us to determine the most effective way to tackle your pest problems!


So if you are dealing with bed bugs, don’t wait! Call us today at 850-874-1900!

Signs of a bed bug infestation , Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

The possible bed bug infestation can be a terrifying prospect for many homeowners and hotels, and rightfully so.

After all, a well established bed bug population in your home can be extremely difficult to remove and result in a great deal of frustration and expense.

The fact is, bed bugs are a rapidly reproducing species, and if left unchecked they can quickly establish a substantial infestation in your home. Beyond this, they will oftentimes hitch a ride with humans or animals as a way to spread to new areas. This can make their spread unpredictable, and even a single bed bug brought home from a trip or on used furniture could potentially create a new infestation.

Due to this, it is essential that any signs of bed bug activity in your home are quickly identified.

So if you are a Florida homeowner, the question are asking is probably this: what are the most common signs of a bed bug infestation in my home?

 Bed bugs are parasites with a preference for human blood. As such, any active infestation must be clustered around an area that can provide a healthy, living host. Due to this, bed bugs are most often found in areas around the home where people might recline or sleep. While beds are the most common areas that are infested, other furniture and linens can also potentially house a bed bug population.

Most of the time, the first sign of bed bug activity noticed by homeowners is the identification of bites. Bed bugs often target areas of skin that are exposed during sleep, so the first areas you check for bites should be the arms, legs, and neck.

While they do not always show a pattern, bed bug bites form reddish bumps that are usually itchy. These bumps often take some time to form, however, and it can sometimes be up to 48 hours before you feel notice the bite.

Beyond the signs of their bites, bed bugs leave behind other signs of their habitation. In areas that they frequent, you will often find small blackish-brown stains as well as excrement. Most of the time, these will be found in dark, secluded spaces. When searching a room for bed bug activity, you should check in the more common infestation spots such as:

  • Beneath the mattress
  • Behind headboards or beneath floorboards
  • Inside loose bedding and pillow cases
  • Around box springs or on bed framing


While these are not the only areas that bed bugs can infest, they will still often have signs of the pest activity even if just from moving to and from feeding.
But the fact is, identifying signs of a bed bug infestation is just the first step, there is another question that needs to be answered:

What should you do if you find signs of bed bug activity in your home?

While there a variety of DIY treatment products that are often marketed for bed bug removal, many of these products are insufficient. This is because they are usually “Kill-On-Contact” products that can only eradicate the bed bugs that pass through treated areas.

 Since the majority of the bed bug population remains secluded, such treatment products are often unable to entirely eradicate an infestation. For this reason, treating bed bugs is a multi-step process often involving multiple applications of treatment over time.

If your home has become infested with bed bugs, your best option is to call in a licensed pest control company to perform an inspection ASAP. The sooner treatment can begin on your home, the more easily the pests can be removed. Since bed bug removal can be a complex task, homeowners will want to ensure that any company they hire is one that they can trust to treat their home completely and carefully!

 We here at Arrow Pest Service have been a leading pest provider for the greater Panama City area for decades! We have dealt with bed bugs in a wide range of situations, and we employ a variety of safe, targeted treatment options to eradicate the pest infestation at the source! All of our treatment comes backed by a customer satisfaction guarantee, so you can rest easy knowing that the treatment of your home is in good hands!

When is the right time to protect your home from pests, Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

When is the most important time to ensure that your home is protected from pests?

The logical answer might be to say spring or summer. After all, these are the times when the majority of destructive pests species are active. However, the truth is, even though the cold weather eliminates the majority of outdoor pests, it can sometimes increase the chances of a invasive infestation in your home.

So why does cold weather increase pest invasions?

 While the outdoor temperature may be too cold for a pest population to survive, your warm home remains an ideal environment for pests to thrive and grow. This can lead many pest species to invade homes seeking warmth and shelter from the cold. These types of infestations often begin in secluded areas such as crawlspaces, basements, or ventilation.

Throughout the winter, a large pest population can develop in your home, and since many people stop having regular inspections and treatment from pest providers during this time, such infestations often grow unchecked. Thus when warm weather returns, homeowners will sometimes find themselves facing a large, developed infestation seemingly out of nowhere.

This problem is further complicated if, during the winter, your home suffers any type of water damage, structural decay, or any other issue. Oftentimes these types of problems are not found until warmer weather and spring cleaning arrive, and due to this pests can often exploit these types of conditions to gain access to your home.

With our decades of experience in the pest industry, our suggestion for homeowners is this:

Don’t wait until the warm weather returns to start thinking about pest control!

Call Arrow Pest Service today and schedule an inspection of your home. This will ensure that you can identify any pest problems or conducive conditions that could lead to future infestation.

Don’t let pests roam free in your home, call Arrow Pest Service TODAY and schedule an inspection! Our technicians are the best in the industry, and we offer a wide range of treatment options designed to safely target and eliminate pests in your home!

Silverfish can be a major problem for homeowners in Panama City, FL – Arrow Pest Service

We have previously discussed at length how conducive environmental conditions can allow for pest infestation, but did you know that, for some pests, those conditions can exponentially increase the degree of infestation?

For some pests, the right environment can create a perfect storm transforming a relatively harmless pest into a large and problematic infestation. One great example of this behavior is that of the silverfish.

Most people are aware of what silverfish are, even if they have not put a name to the pest. Silverfish are small, reclusive pests growing to around 3/4 inches. Identifying features of these pests include their characteristic “teardrop” shaped bodies, glistening bluish-silver bodies, and long bristles located near to the tail.

As we stated above, silverfish are a good example of how environment impacts infestation because the scale of their development is directly tied to moisture content in an environment. The more humid an area is, the more quickly silverfish will hatch and grow. This can be especially problematic here in Florida due to our above average levels of moisture, rainfall, and temperature.

As you might expect, areas of the home that match these conditions are often the first places infested by silverfish. Some of the following areas being the most common:

  • Basements
  • Crawlspaces
  • Bathrooms (Near drains and sinks)
  • Kitchens (Especially beneath large appliances)
  • Beneath boxes and debris
  • Around water damage

These areas often provide the silverfish initial refuge, and will typically be the source of any infestation around your home. Beyond just the requirement for moisture, silverfish also prefer areas with low light levels, so it is possible to encounter them in ventilation and outdoor sheds.

Silverfish can cause a wide variety of problems for homeowners, most of which relate to their diet. Silverfish can consume almost any type of carbohydrates, sugars, and starches. This can lead them to feed on any food left out as well as more unusual substances such as shampoo, cellulosic (wood-based) material, glue, linens, and silk. They are notorious for damaging a variety of collectables such as stamps, comic books, and rare fabrics as well as parts of the home like wallpapers or furniture.

When left unchecked, silverfish can be a major problem for homeowners. As such, any responsible homeowner is probably interested in knowing how to detect and prevent silverfish infestations. Unfortunately, these pests can be difficult to spot. Being nocturnal and generally shy creatures, silverfish can rarely be spotted out in the open, but you may notice signs of damage in some of their more frequented areas.

A popular myth exists that cinnamon is a home remedy to silverfish infestation. This probably emerged due to the their tendency to avoid the spice. Unfortunately, however, it is no cure. Silverfish will avoid cinnamon, but it cannot kill them, and thus it will not resolve an infestation. The truth is, the best thing homeowners can do to prevent silverfish is to remove any conducive conditions that might allow them to thrive. Maintaining control of humidity and moisture build-up in the home, especially in crawlspaces and vents, will help to keep the silverfish out.


If you are already dealing with an infestation in your home, your best option is to call in a licensed pest professional to inspect your home. On your own, it can be difficult to define the spread of the infestation, and thus a professional inspection is often required to uncover and eradicate the pests.

If you are dealing with pests in your home, don’t wait another day!

Carpenter ants cause damage to homes, Panama City, FL -Arrow Pest Service

As we draw closer to spring, homeowners will often call us to report spotting signs of damage around wood and sometimes the presence of large, black ants.

In most cases, the culprits in question are common carpenter ants.


While we have discussed at length how carpenter ants can cause damage when infesting, a large part of pest control involves correcting any conducive environmental conditions that can allow pests such as carpenter ants to thrive in your home.

So you may be asking: What conducive conditions should homeowners be on the lookout for?

Carpenter ants, like any pest, are attracted to certain food sources. Making these resources unavailable to pests can reduce the likelihood of their infesting your home. In the case of carpenter ants, these pests primarily feed on greasy substances. This will lead to feeding around pet foods, stovetops, trashcans, and other areas that collect oil and grease.

Due to this, proper cleaning procedures can help to avoid attracting carpenter ants. This extends to areas outside of the home, such as bird feeders and pet food bowls. In some cases, carpenter ants can be attracted to these external sources and then grow into a much larger infestation throughout the home.

Don’t let a carpenter ant infestation grow out of hand in your home. If you are seeing signs of pest infestation, call Arrow Pest Service, to perform an inspection.


At Arrow Pest Service, we have decades of experience providing pest control for the Panama City area. We offer a wide range of treatment options designed to safely target pests in your home and remove the problem quickly and completely!

New Years Resolutions, Panama City, FL-Arrow Pest Service

As we enter the new year, it is common to make resolutions and plans for how you are going to live. People will often look ahead and schedule out major events and perform annual errands during this time.

With our decades of experience in the pest industry, we have seen pest seasons come and go many times, and thus we have a good idea of what steps homeowners should be taking during this time to make sure they are prepared. With the spring swarming season just around the corner, homeowners should make pest protection for their home one of their new years resolutions!

So without further ado, here are our tips to keeping your home secure in the new year!

  1. Schedule Regular Inspections for your Property:

The fact is, the best time to deal with ANY pest infestation is before it occurs. The damage done by destructive pests such as termites, carpenter ants, and bed bugs often increases exponentially with the growth of the infestation, and many of these infestations are much harder to remove once they are allowed to sufficiently spread. Therefore, early detection and prevention will often save homeowners time, frustration, and expense in the long run.

Since many pests infest secluded parts of the home not frequented by humans, a thorough inspection may be the only way to identify signs of pest activity. Due to this, it is best for homeowners to at least have one annual inspection per year. This can allow you to rest easy knowing that your home is pest free, and inspections will often reveal conducive environmental conditions in your home that could cause future infestations if not dealt with.

   2. Resolve Conducive Conditions Where Possible:

“Spring Cleaning” is a common beginning of the year activity for many. During this time, homeowners should also be on the lookout for anything in and around their home that might be making their home an easier or more attractive location for pests

As there are millions of different pest species, and each has different environmental preferences, it is impossible to list them all. However, there are a few standard practices that cover major pest groups:

  • Clean up any trash or debris around the exterior of the home or in garages, sheds, or basements
  • Reduce abnormal moisture levels/Repair water damage
  • Seal any exterior access points such as vents, windows, or doors
  • Repair any external structural damage
  • Seal and store any potential food sources to avoid attracting pests

While this is not an exhaustive list, performing these steps will substantially reduce the chances of you dealing with a destructive infestation.

3. Schedule Preventative Treatment Early:

As part of your new years resolutions, we hope that you will place priority on scheduling preventative treatments for your home. As we approach termite and mosquito season, pest control companies across the board will start to become busy and overburdened with customer calls.  The fact is, the value of prevention is much greater than that of a cure. Many pests are significantly more difficult to remove if they are allowed to establish themselves in your home, and thus it is best to take steps to prevent initial infestation rather than calling a pest control company after you have spotted the problem.

Starting the year by scheduling an comprehensive inspection and preventative treatments will make sure that your home is protected throughout the year!


We hope that you have a wonderful New Years and that you succeed with whatever resolutions you make. If you are in need of fully service pest protection in 2018 and years to come, Arrow Pest Service is your one call solution! We offer a wide range of treatment options designed to safely target pest problems and eradicate infestations quickly and effectively!
