Let's from Certified Applicator and business Owner / Operator Steve Moseley about this beneficial spider.

"The classic Texas garden spider. Fairly common in the South Arlington and Mansfield area. Those guys usually live for about a year, and are very beneficial to have in your garden, or other area around the home. They will catch a multitude of different insects in their very large web that contains unique zigzag designs unlike any other spider in our area. If there's one spider that customers request to leave unharmed, it's the garden spider. And, to the best of my ability I always avoid the area in which they reside. Allowing them plenty of space will enable them to weave webs that sometimes exceed twelve feet in diameter, provided there are available anchor points. Although they do come in a few different colors, the black, white, and yellow variations seem to be the most common."

Carpenter Ant Bullseye Pest Management

Carpenter Ant Video by Bullseye Pest Management

Knowing what kind of ant you're looking at is important for understanding the bigger picture of what the infestation is and how to treat it, but also how to manage and prevent it.

Bullseye Pest Management is available to help you with your ant problem. Certified Applicator and owner / operator Steve Moseley had this to say about this particular lone ant, and how he was an indication of a bigger concern.

"This video is a lone scout Carpenter Ant. Taken while performing a Wood Destroying Insect Report for a customer. An important and recognized wood destroying organism by the Texas Department of Agriculture, the carpenter ant often makes galleries in the wood to raise their younglings. Easy to identify, the carpenter ant is one of the largest ants we have in our area. Paying close attention to the foliage around the property that is next to the structure when treating will insure complete control, as these ants are often found in with shrubs and trees, etc."

This ant could be a bigger indicator of the presence of Wood Destroying Insects. Call Steve at Bullseye Pest Management locally at 682-472-4435 or toll free from anywhere across DFW and beyond at 800-466-4451 for accurate identification and the best treatment.

Acrobat Ant Bullseye Pest Management

What kind of ant is that? Most people would simply say "red ant" but there are different variations of ants with different habits and motivations.

Bullseye Pest Management can accurately diagnose your ant infestation so that the best treatment is applied. Certified Applicator and owner / operator Steve Moseley was able to track this ant infestation back to its source, and had this to say about these Acrobat Ants:

Acrobat Ants in Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas

"The first video is Acrobat Ants that have infested the eaves and soffit areas of the customer's home. When disturbed, they come out to investigate by the thousands, including the swarmer’s, or winged reproductive casts. The sight can be a little overwhelming for some home owners to witness, but the control measures are usually effective within an hour or so."

What can look like an ant infestation might actually be termites or other indications of Wood Destroying Insects. Call Steve at Bullseye Pest Management locally at 682-472-4435 or toll free from anywhere across DFW and beyond at 800-466-4451 for accurate identification and the best treatment.

Bullseye Pest Management DFW Texas Brown Tarantula

Texas Brown Tarantula Sighting in DFW

Wanna guess the most common spider in the South? That is exactly what you’d think... a Texas Tarantula! (Or Texas Brown Tarantula, Oklahoma Tarantula, etc.) The Aphonopelma Hentzi. For professional and effective pest control of the highest caliber and strong ethics, call Bullseye Pest Management in Arlington locally at 682-472-4435 or toll-free from all over the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex at 800-466-4451.

This is what Certified Applicator and business Owner / Operator Steve Moseley has to say about them:

"Although they say that tarantulas are fairly common, and we have about a dozen or so species here in Texas, I have never encountered one on a job in over two decades... Until I happened upon that big fella hanging out in the corner above a window."

Bullseye Pest Management has proprietary methods and decades of experience to handle such spiders.

He continues "Their bite isn't normally something to worry about for humans, but they sure look formidable." The Texas tarantula is not typically aggressive. When they feel threatened they will rear up on their hind legs and raise their front legs. Most of the time they live safely in a borrow.

Bullseye Pest Management DFW Texas Brown Tarantula

"The funny thing about this spider is it came from a customer that insists I treat the exterior of her home every month, no matter what because she is afraid of spiders! I won’t tell her if you don't! I’m sure she would faint if she knew." The Texas tarantula can have a leg span in excess of 9 inch and can weigh 3 ounces as a full adult.

"That's also a learning point about spiders... even though I've got a really good residual around this lady's home, the spider managed to crawl through the yard and up the side of the house to hang out in the corner of the window. So, liquid applications of insecticides / pesticides help in many ways with spider activity, such as eliminating their primary food sources... all the other bugs! But, spiders can sometimes come away unharmed by these treatments because they don’t groom themselves, or their young which is one of the ways these products work... involuntary ingestion."

The Katydid comes from the grasshopper and cricket family. There are approximately 6,000 species with 255 living in North America. They can be found on every continent except Antarctica and ⅓ of the Katydids are in tropical climates. The Katydid was previously known as the long horn grasshopper and is approximately 4-6 cm long.

They primarily come in shades of green and brown. They look like leaves and use this to their advantage to camouflage. There are also morphs with odd colors such as pink and yellow. They are nocturnal and are attracted to bright lights. They mainly like to eat eucalyptus, acacia shrubs and flax lilies as well as some small insects.

• Defensive.

However it may be, the Katydid is named for its song.

Black Widow Spider – Bullseye Pest Management

Here we have one of the most commonly feared spiders, the Latrodectus [ lăt′rə-dĕk′təs ], or Black Widow. With 31 species, there are 3 groups in North America. The Southern Black Widow is the most common living Black Widow in the DFW Metroplex. Their described as being black and having a red hour-glass marking on the abdomen.

These females grow to about a half an inch long. Making them hard to locate. Certified Applicator and Owner / Operator Steve Moseley of Bullseye Pest Management knows all the different places that spiders may hide and can provide you with expertise and experience in the field.

Black Widows are all female, given the name because they are believed to eat the male after they are done mating. At least that is the myth. In reality, this supposed cannibalism is merely the Black Widow poisoning an insect in her web. The males that survive run after doing the deed. No hard feelings, 'kay?

The males are about half the size of the females. The females typically live 180 days, while males live about a third of that time. Some of the Black Widows in the American South have lived up to 3 years in the wild, or 4 years in captivity!

Black Widows commonly nest under wood piles and in dark corners, areas where there is little activity or there are no drafts, such as attics, garages or basements. If you do not want to find Black Widows on your property, a good thing might be to hire an exterminator. At half an inch, that is a small (and poisonous) spider to miss. Though their bite is not specifically fatal, death can arise as a complication to other results of Black Widow bites such as organ failure and necrosis.

If you contact Steve Moseley, you can most likely get a free estimate over the phone and if you provide a photo or video, the estimate will be even more accurate.

Prevent poisonous bites, call Bullseye Pest Management locally at 682-472-4435 or toll free from anywhere across DFW and beyond at 800-466-4451.

Bullseye Pest Remembers D-Day, June 6th, 1944

Bullseye Pest Remembers D-Day, June 6th, 1944

Bullseye Pest Management encourages you to take a moment and remember D-Day.

On this day, in 1944, over 250,000 allied forces gave their lives in the Battle of Normandy so that we and our children could live free of the tyranny of Hitler and the regime of the 3rd Reich.

Bullseye Pest Management in Arlington Texas encourages you to do a Google search on D-Day, or read the Wikipedia article, or reach out to an elder that may have lived through the time as a child, or may have had a father or grand-father serve in World War II, and remember and respect those that have fallen so that we can live free lives.

In total, nearly half-a-million Allied and German troops fell in the Battle for Normandy, and Germany was divided and lived under communist oppression along with Eastern-Europe for half-a-century in the events that would follow leading up to and after the end of the war. These singular events held ramifications for families on both sides of the war for generations to come.

Today is a day to remember D-Day and what was sacrificed by all of Earth's citizens so that we could enjoy the world that we live in today.
