Pest control in Las Vegas – what to watch for and how to stop these “buggers”

The Las Vegas area is known for its magnificent desert sunsets, endless buffets and Elvis impersonators. We also have some pests who like it here thanks to hot summers, mild winters, seasonal rains and human settlements.

Mice /Rats

House mice, are the most commonly encountered rodents in the U.S.  They usually nest in dark areas like attics. They can cause serious damage by chewing through drywall and wires and are known to spread diseases like salmonella and tapeworms. I have even had them nest in my pool heater over the winter, destroying it. Tips for keeping mice/rats away:

 ■ Seal cracks and holes on the outside of your home with caulk and steel wool.

 ■ Keep areas clear and store boxes off the floor, since mice like to hide in clutter.

 ■ Regularly inspect your home for signs of mice, like droppings, gnaw marks or compromised food.  If you see a food container that has bite marks throw the food out immediately.  You might want to invest in plastic sealed containers for your pantry.

 ■ If you plan to use poison, please be responsible and use the poison containers that dogs and cats are too large to get into. We don’t want your fur babies (or someone else’s) to become a casualty.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches prefer to live in small areas close to food and moisture, making homes the perfect habitat for them.  Commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms, they can contaminate food sources and spread bacteria. Their allergens are also known to trigger and exacerbate asthma symptoms, especially in children. I’ve often said there are 3 kinds of homes in Las Vegas;

  1. Those that do have cockroaches
  2. Those that did have cockroaches
  3. Those that will have cockroaches

Tips for keeping cockroaches away.

 ■ Keep your counters and floors free of crumbs.

 ■ Vacuum your home frequently and dispose of garbage properly

 ■ Monitor your kitchen and bathroom areas, especially under appliances and sinks.

 ■ Have consistent visits from a pest control company.

Spiders

Spiders like to spin webs in undisturbed places such as closets, attics and crawl spaces. They can bite and inject venom if disturbed, making them dangerous to humans. Tips for keeping spiders away:

 ■ Keep trees and shrubs trimmed away from your home to reduce the chance of spiders finding a way inside.

 ■ Store clothing and shoes inside plastic containers.

 ■ Use gloves when disturbing things in the garage and around your home that have not been disturbed in a while, especially if you notice the presence of webs.

 ■ Seek medical attention if you suspect you have a spider bite.

Scorpions

There are also scorpions that like to visit our homes, so I suggest wearing shoes or slippers in the house and garage at all times to avoid being stung.

Tips for keeping scorpions away:

■ Don’t leave clothes bundled up on the floor, and if you do, shake them out and look inside before putting them on.

■ I know many of you love the look of a bed skirt, but I have literally watched a scorpion crawl up one, so I suggest shortening them, or ditching them all together.

■ They are found on the walls as often as they are floors. Did you know that black light illuminates scorpions? I keep a small blacklight flashlight in the house and check for them from time to time.

■ Lavender essential oils at door entrances can help keep them away as they really don’t like lavender.

■ Diatomaceous earth (which is essentially ground up seashells) spread at the door also wrecks them as it cuts them up when they try to walk through it.

If stung take two Benadryl tablets and go to the emergency room or urgent care to get a shot to ward off toxins. 

Ticks

You don’t often hear about ticks in Las Vegas, however, they are here, and can be harmful to both humans and animals.

if you have standing water after a heavy rain or monsoon, quickly disperse the water to avoid attracting them. 

If you decide to hire a professional pest control company, contact me, Jeff Howard, your favorite real estate agent. I would be happy to make a couple of recommendations as always!

The Timeless Appeal of White and Gray Tiles

Are you thinking about retiling your bathroom or kitchen?  And are you at a loss as to which color tile to choose? As a tile choice can often make or break a room, the dilemma is understandable.

What is on trend? One trend and color palette we have spotted repeatedly recently does seem pervasive: the colors white and gray.

These two colors might not surprise you or may seem a little bland, however, they offer wonderful advantages.  They both have timeless appeal and neutrality.  You can see this palate on kitchen countertops and backsplashes and in bathrooms as well.

The following are some suggestions on how to make a good selection for renovating these rooms.

Go in person to see slabs of material when it comes to backsplashes and countertops.  Many times you can visit a stone yard so you can make your own selection.

Be very aware of the background color and shades.  Not all whites and grays blend together.  When you place tiles next to each other make sure they match or blend.

You should consider using tiles for a large wall space – the tiles will make for an interesting focal point.

Consider mixing patterns – one pattern on the floor and another on the wall.

If you are thinking about using mosaic and glass tile be you’ll probably want use a professional installer.

Grout color is very important and a good amount of time overlooked by the consumer – you want a color that is custom to work with your tiles.

Rectangular tiles are very popular and have a more modern feeling than square tiles.

Use tile to introduce both texture and color into a space.

You should consider mixing tiles that are dissimilar, however, the same color palette which can add interest and depth.

If you feel your eye is not up to the task, an interior design consultation costs less than you might think. If you need a recommendation for an interior designer or installer, reach out to me, Jeff, your Realtor for life; I have a Rolodex of trusted sources (OK, it’s not an actual Rolodex these days, it’s more like a list on my computer)!

The Revolutionists at The Little Theatre

This past weekend I went to see The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson.  And found it to be wonderful.

​Now I know why they called it that..

Revolution + Feminist = Revolutionist!

It was funny… and it was touching and the 4 ladies on stage were very talented!

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris.

There are still three performances left: all tickets are $30.

Friday, April 8 @ 8pm

Saturday, April 9 @ 8pm

Sunday, April 10 @ 2pm

Living in Las Vegas we are very fortunate to have a multitude of entertainment all over town, without going to the strip.  There are several local theatre productions and many take place in the Little Theatre.  To get more information either call the box office 702-362-7996  or email  info@lvlt.org.  The theatre is located in China Town at 3920 Schiff Drive.
