It can feel like a daunting task to control ants as these common pests have a knack for infiltrating homes through even the tiniest cracks. They are easily lured in by sweet or greasy foods and water, and their chemical trails can lead an entire colony into your home. To protect your home from an ant invasion, it's essential to have access to reliable ant control services. It's worth considering the following facts about these household pests.
Ant colonies can be enormous, with up to half a million ants living on your property. While most of the colony may reside outside, weather changes or a need for food or water can drive them indoors.
Ant colonies are persistent, with an average lifespan of seven years and queen ants living up to 15 years. Without effective removal, these pests will stick around for a long time.
Most do-it-yourself (DIY) ant control efforts are not effective, as they focus on blocking access points or removing visible pests.
If you're waking up with unexplained red stains on your bedding or furniture, it may be a sign that bed bugs have infiltrated your home. Early detection is key to ending this infestation, but it can be challenging to spot the signs since everyone reacts differently to bed bug bites.
Here are some indicators that bed bugs may have taken up residence in your home:
- Dark spots on your mattress that are about the size of a period and smear like ink pen marks.
- Tiny eggshells that are difficult to detect with the naked eye.
- Live bugs in your bed. If you find them when you lift up your mattress, the infestation may have progressed beyond the early stages.
Despite their name, bed bugs can infest any part of the home. They can be found in couches, chairs, curtains, loose wallpaper, dresser drawers, and even electrical outlets. This is why it's important to call in a professional pest control expert for an inspection if you suspect bed bugs or have found evidence of them.
Fleas are tiny, blood-sucking parasites that can infest your home and your pets. They are a common problem for pet owners, and flea control is essential to protect your pets from the discomfort and health risks associated with flea infestations. There are several methods you can use to control fleas and prevent them from infesting your home.
Regular Grooming Regular grooming of your pets can help control flea infestations. Use a flea comb to comb through your pet's fur and remove any fleas you find. You can also use a fine-toothed comb to remove flea eggs and larvae from your pet's fur. Bathing your pet with a flea shampoo can also help kill fleas and their eggs.
Vacuuming Vacuuming your home regularly can help control flea infestations. Fleas and their eggs can hide in carpets, furniture, and other areas of your home. Vacuuming these areas can help remove fleas and their eggs and prevent them from reproducing. Be sure to vacuum areas where your pet spends a lot of time, such as their bed, the couch, and the carpet.
Flea Treatments There are several flea treatments available for pets, including spot-on treatments, flea collars, and oral medications. These treatments can help kill fleas and prevent them from infesting your pet. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully when using these treatments, as some can be harmful if not used correctly.
Pest Control Services If you have a severe flea infestation, you may need to call a pest control service. They can use insecticides and other methods to eliminate fleas from your home. Be sure to choose a reputable pest control service and follow their instructions carefully to ensure the safety of your family and pets.
House flies are not just a seasonal annoyance, they can also be a major health hazard. These pests can carry and spread over 100 different types of disease-causing pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
When they come into contact with food or surfaces in your home or business, they can easily transfer these pathogens and contaminate them. This can lead to the spread of diseases like typhoid, cholera, dysentery, and even tuberculosis.
Professional house fly control services are therefore critical for preventing the spread of these diseases and protecting the health and well-being of you and your family.
Our professional house fly control services use safe and effective methods to eliminate adult flies and prevent future infestations. We start by identifying the breeding sites of the flies, which can be anywhere from garbage cans and pet waste to rotting food and organic material in drains or gutters.
By eliminating these breeding sites, we can prevent future infestations and reduce the number of flies in your home or business. Additionally, we use targeted methods to eliminate other fly species that may be present, including fruit flies and drain flies.
We also provide proactive preventions, including baiting and insecticides, to ensure your home remains fly-free year-round.
With our professional house fly control services, you can rest easy knowing that your home or business is protected from the health hazards associated with these pests.
Discovering cockroaches in your home or business can be alarming. Cockroaches are notorious carriers of dangerous diseases such as Salmonella, Dysentery, and Gastro-enteritis, and their presence poses significant health risks. Moreover, exposure to cockroach droppings has been linked to an increase in eczema and asthma.
Cockroaches are hardy insects that breed quickly, making professional treatment crucial to effectively control any infestation. Only expert products and solutions can eliminate all stages of their life cycle.
Here are three reasons why hiring a professional to handle your roach problem is essential:
Insecticides may not kill roach eggs. To control the pest, the nest and the eggs must be eliminated.
Roaches can trigger allergies. Hunting down roaches can exacerbate severe allergies caused by the pest's droppings and casings.
Reproduction happens rapidly. Missing just a couple of eggs is enough for the pest to reestablish control.
If you notice what looks like coffee grounds on your floor or detect a strange musty odor in your home, act now.

Rodents are a persistent pest that can cause extensive damage to your home or business, contaminate your food, and transmit diseases to humans and pets. They are highly adaptable creatures, able to survive in a variety of environments and reproduce rapidly. This makes them difficult to control and remove without professional help.
One of the most common rodents found in homes and businesses is the house mouse. These small creatures can fit through openings as small as a dime, making it easy for them to gain entry into your property. They breed rapidly and can quickly establish a nest, causing damage to electrical wiring, insulation, and other building materials.
Another common rodent is the rat, which is larger and more aggressive than the house mouse. Rats can transmit diseases to humans and pets through their urine, feces, and bites. They can also cause damage to your property by gnawing on wires, pipes, and other materials.
Rodents are known for being cautious and suspicious, which makes them difficult to catch with DIY methods such as traps or baits. Professional rodent control services use advanced techniques and products to locate and remove rodents from your property, and prevent them from coming back.
Effective rodent control involves identifying the type of rodent, the size of the infestation, and the areas of the property that are vulnerable to infestation. This can involve inspecting the property for signs of rodent activity, setting traps and baits in strategic locations, and sealing off access points that rodents may use to enter your property.
