Birds may not only be a loud and disruptive inconvenience, but also a health risk. Fortunately, birds can be removed quickly, permanently, and humanely. Here is a look at your bird removal options from Burns Pest Elimination.
The constant sound of birds loudly chirping, cooing, and tweeting may be frustrating to some people, but it is the health risk that they pose that makes them a real problem. People and animals are both susceptible to the diseases that birds carry in their nests and droppings, which can negatively impact the health of your children and pets. Bird nests also tend to house other pests like fleas and ticks that are capable of infesting your home. A professional pest control service can install discreet products that keep birds away from your home using methods that are humane, durable, and non-toxic to animals and humans.

A bed bug infestation can occur out of nowhere and can be difficult to eradicate. They can cause you to discard clothing, bed sheets and blankets, and other items due to contamination. Here is a look at the increase in bed bug infestations in Arizona over the last few years.
Favorable Conditions for Bed Bugs
Bed bugs tend to be active in warmer weather; hotter climates cause them to be more prone to feeding, reproducing, and being active. Unfortunately, this makes Arizona a suitable home for bed bugs. Bed bugs are also more likely to infest multi-unit housing spaces. This is why Arizona apartment buildings, hotels, and motels are hot spots for bed bug infestations.
Cause of the Increase
It has been surmised that bed bug infestations are increasing in Arizona due to the rising popularity of international travel. People often travel to Arizona from other warm climates that are even more prone to bed bugs, so they may be spreading the infestation. This is why bed bugs tend to be found in places like hotels, where travellers stay while on vacation or business. Unfortunately, the climate in Arizona allows bed bugs to thrive, and citizens fall victim to infestations.
How to Check for Bed Bugs
If you live in an apartment building or are staying in a hotel or motel in Arizona, check your bed for bed bugs frequently so that you can catch an infestation as early as possible. Look at the seams of the mattress and inside your furniture. Even if you don’t see bed bugs, you may see bloodstains from bites.

It is common for ants to make their way into kitchen areas in the home because they are attracted to food and there are many different entrances. Watch this video for a few tips on how to remove ants from your kitchen.
There are various ways that ants may end up in your kitchen, such as entering through windows or coming through edges and corners of molding. Since they are attracted to food, it helps to avoid leaving food out in your kitchen and keeping any food that you do have covered. You can place small bait traps around your kitchen so that the ants will swarm to the liquid trap instead of your food.

Africanized bees and European bees can be hard to tell apart due to their physical similarities. However, Africanized bees behave differently and can be more dangerous. Here are a few tips for identifying Africanized bees.
Africanized bees tend to be more aggressive and more violent than European bees. They are willing to travel farther from their hives, yet they guard their hives more defensively than European bees. They are also more committed to stinging than other bees and will work cooperatively to sting another human or animal together. Africanized bees adapt to stress and are more mobile. When they feel threatened, they move their entire colony. Despite appearing similar to European bees, Africanized bees are more dangerous and should be handled with caution. Call a professional pest elimination service to help you control your bee problem.
If you have Africanized bees that you need eliminated, call Burns Pest Elimination. We are a high quality pest elimination service that covers the Tucson and Phoenix areas.

When you find pests in your hotel, it is imperative that you do everything you can to reverse the infestation immediately. Although infestations do happen, they can scare off guests and ruin your reputation. Fortunately, there are effective methods for controlling any kind of pest. Here are some tips for eliminating pests in your hotel.
Rats and Mice
Rats and mice can be effectively controlled and eliminated by proofing and baiting. Proofing is important as it prevents infestations from occurring; rats and mice are small and can infiltrate your hotel through holes and gaps that are just millimeters wide. Cement and chicken wire can be used to block holes so that these rodents cannot access the inside of your building. Baits can be used to attract and then poison rats and mice, but they need to be checked regularly so that dead rodents can be removed.
When it comes to bed bug infestations, it is important to call a licensed professional for treatment. Your staff may make matters worse by spreading the infestation instead of eliminating the bed bugs. Your pest elimination service will inspect the affected room as well as all of the surrounding areas, and they will also insure that the treatment was successful by conducting post-treatment inspections. You may have to remove infested items from the affected rooms, and you may also have to temporarily deem these rooms out of service.
A cockroach infestation must be treated very thoroughly. First, the infestation must be sprayed with an insecticide spray, or for large infestations, a dusting powder. In certain situations where these treatments are not advisable, baits may be used as an alternative. A follow up treatment should be conducted about a week after the original treatment progress can be evaluated. An area that has been infested by cockroaches must be cleaned incredibly thoroughly, due to the allergens that are produced by decomposing cockroach bodies.
