Squirrels

Now that the weather is dropping the wildlife are really going to start coming indoors. Why is this bad? There are a lot of reasons but we would like to share one story that recently happened in Peachtree City. This story was original shared on the Citizen. Don’t delay getting squirrels removed from your home in Peachtree City.

“A late afternoon residential fire on Nov. 4 in Peachtree City resulted in moderate damage to the home but no injuries. The fire appeared to be caused by nesting material from squirrels that caught fire a short time after the homeowner lit a fire in the fireplace. Peachtree City Fire Department spokesman Ron Mundy said the homeowner on North Fairfield Drive near 5:30 p.m. lit a fire in the fireplace and approximately 30 minutes later heard a crackling noise coming from the attic.

He investigated the noise and found fire and smoke in the attic, Mundy said. Fire units responding to the residence found heavy fire involvement, Mundy said, adding that flames had broken through the roof.

While there were no injuries, Mundy said the home sustained moderate damage. Mundy said squirrels or other nesting animals got in the attic and built a nest around the chimney flue which, like 70-80 percent of those in Peachtree City, is factory-built using pre-fabricated, galvanized metal. The metal got hot enough from the flames in the fireplace to ignite the straw and other nesting materials. It was from there that the attic fire spread further into the attic and broke through the roof, Mundy said.

Mundy recommended several precautions homeowners should take prior to the beginning of each winter season.

Check the attic for any nesting activity, check the outside of the house for evidence of entry areas and have the chimney inspected annually by a qualified professional, he said.”

Types of Ants

There are hundreds of different species of ants in Georgia. The term “red ants” is a broad name for many different species of ants with a light brown (red) skin. Red ants may also be known as fire ants as their sting is very painful. The most common ants that invest the home include carpenter ants, odorous house ants, and pavement ants.

Carpenter ants are similar to termites, but they don’t eat the wood like termites do. They are threatening to homeowners because they cause damage to the structure of the home. Carpenter ants often infest homes with wood because they thrive in areas with moist wood. Odorous house ants feed on sweet, sugary food. They love fruit, so be cautious to not leave any out! They will also eat meat or grease from food. Pavement Ants got their name because they often live in pavement. This means they often live around or in the foundation of residential homes.

Do Ant Bites Sting?

Most ants have mandibles to bite, however some both bite and sting! Fire ants sting their prey. They inject potent venom which is harmful when many ants sting at the same time. If the person is allergic, these ant bites can be very dangerous. Many other ants such as the Carpenter ant have strong jaws which allow them to bite their prey.

All About Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jackets are most recognizable for their distinctive markings. As you can see in the image, most yellow jackets have black and yellow markings. In some species, however, the yellow is replaced with red. Yellow jackets are a type of wasp. They are often mistaken for bees because of their coloring, but yellow jackets don’t have hair on their bodies, they don’t carry pollen, and they don’t have hairy hind legs.

Protect Yourself from Yellow Jackets!

Yellow Jackets have stingers with small barbs. These typically sting repeatedly, however sometimes the stinger becomes lodged and pulls free of the wasps body. Stings from yellow jackets are not usually harmful, however if the human is allergic to the venom, it can cause large problems.

Yellow Jackets are quite aggressive and defend their nests vigorously. If there is a yellow jacket nest on your property, you need to be sure not to disturb it. Calling a professional pest control company to have a nest removed is the best way to protect yourself and your family from harmful attacks!
