Beetle control in arizona

Palo verde beetles (Derobrachus geminatus) are a type of large, black beetle native to the southwestern United States, including Arizona. They are known for their distinctive appearance and behavior.

Palo verde beetles are one of the largest beetles found in Arizona, with adults measuring up to 3-4 inches in length. They have long, slender bodies and sharp, spiny legs that they use to climb trees and other vegetation. They are generally black or dark brown in color, with small patches of lighter color on their wing covers.

The adult beetles are typically active during the summer months, from June through August. During this time, they mate and lay their eggs in the soil near the roots of trees and other plants.

The larvae then hatch and burrow into the soil, where they feed on the roots of the host plant.Palo verde beetles are not considered harmful to humans, but they can be a nuisance due to their large size and tendency to fly around outdoor lights at night. They are attracted to light sources and can be found hovering around streetlights and porch lights.

Despite their intimidating appearance, Palo verde beetles are not dangerous and do not sting or bite. They are an important part of the ecosystem in Arizona, playing a role in pollination and nutrient cycling. However, homeowners may want to take steps to keep the beetles away from outdoor living areas, such as turning off outdoor lights at night or using yellow bug lights instead of white lights.

for five star reviews!

He arrived on time (actually 10 minutes early), was extremely professional, and handled and/or inspected every area of the property without prompting. I have not seen one single spider, silverfish, ant, etc. in the week since Wes was here, inside or on the patios. I would recommend West Coast Pest Control for ANY issues with pests. Great company, great work ethic.

He worked efficiently and quickly dealt with a pretty big hive that was hidden from view. He also gave me a guarantee for several days that if I see any activity in the area where the hive was, he will come back and respray. Excellent service and very professional. Will definitely use for any future bug needs I might have. Highly recommend!

I live in New York and needed advice on how to protect my clothing inventory from pests . Wesley took my call , even though he knew I would be unable to give him business as I live on the east coast . He was informative and knowledgeable and really cares about people who need questions answered . Thank you and I would recommend this company as a first choice to anyone.

Professional, friendly, prompt, thorough, and.....NO CONTRACTS! I called several reputable places to get some quotes for scorpion infestation, and they pretty much all wanted to lock me into a contract, in addition to charging a high initial fee. I called West Coast and spoke with Wes who was friendly and extremely professional.

Wes is awesome. I had a swarm of bees in my backyard and Wes showed up within 45 minutes and took care of my issue. He showed up with a great personality also. Thank you
