Cicadas may make you want to turn to pest control solutions. Here's what the experts have to say.In 2004, Frank Meek stood in line at an airport in Ohio.At the time, Meek was the technical and training director of the Orkin pesticide company, and he recently completed a pest project at a poultry farm. He was about to fly home to Atlanta when transportation safety officials pulled him away. He has three cicadas attached to his back.

A bug was called out inside the สล็อต เอ็กโอ airport to carry a live insect ... he didn't know about it," said Meek, Orkin's technical service manager. He remembers the last time a group of cicadas known as Brood X emerged. Coming out of their 17-year-old underground shelter and so widespread that he walked into an airport not far away, three cicadas were riding on his back. The term cicada lives mostly underground and lays off every 13 or 17 years, depending on the mother.

As the Brood X prepares to make an appearance in 15 eastern states of the United States and Washington, D.C., billions of cicadas are looking for companions, getting busy and laying eggs can cause dramatic visual and auditory confusion for a time. A few weeks For someone like Meek, a board-certified entomologist, and an insect fan, it's interesting. Although working in the pest control industry since the 1980s, he has learned that when a cicadas are hit sporadically, not everyone is thrilled, and people sometimes turn to local pest control specialists.

Jim Fredericks, chief entomologist at the National Pest Management Association, the trade association for the biased pest management industry. Such reactions are not always baseless, termites can damage their structure, and cockroaches are linked to asthma. Some pests live by name.During the Brood X emerged 17 years ago, Fredericks worked at a Baltimore-based pest control company and clearly recognized the calls from clients involved. The thing is, the cicadas will not sting or cause damage, in addition to injuring some seedlings when the female lays a large number of eggs on the branches.

So when people seek help, Fredericks says most pest control people are in the position of educating clients about why pest specialists don't show up and spray pesticides into the field.To some extent, education has always been an important part of pest control.For example, Fredericks said part of dealing with ants invasion is talking to customers about preventive measures, such as not leaving food.I remember learning a lesson on self-study. He started his business in 1986, a year before Brood X appeared again. He does a sales job and his job is to go into residential areas and get people to get rid of pests.I remember thinking this news said we'd have this flock so I'm going to make a lot of money now
