My neighbor had a termite treatment on their home. Do I have anything to be concerned about?
You should have your home inspected to be sure you do not have a termite infestation in your home. Termites in our area are subterranean (colonies are in the ground) and tend to be widespread in some areas but not others. If your neighbor had termites, it means they are present in the soil where you live and you have a good reason to be concerned.
How do you get rid of termites?
There are several different techniques that we use to eliminate termites from a structure. It will be necessary to inspect the house first to determine the best method for your particular situation. There is no charge for the inspection and estimate.
I have been seeing big black ants in and around my home. What are they and can they do damage to my home?
These are most likely carpenter ants and while not as voracious as termites they are classified as wood-destroying insects. They will often times chew the wood to make hollow "galleries" in their efforts to establish a suitable nesting site. They are often found in areas of the structure where moisture exists, as this wood is much easier for them to attack.
Can I take care of my pest problems myself?
In some instances, yes. Retail products that are available, if used properly, can control pest issues. In other cases, a professional pest control technician, who will be in possession of equipment and materials that are not available to the average person, will be better suited to address your needs.
How do I keep mice out of my home?
Since mice can squeeze through the tiniest of cracks and are excellent climbers, the complete exclusion is often not possible. Obvious openings can be caulked and steel wool can be used to plug visible gaps. Typically, an effective control program involves trapping or baiting mice once they have entered the structure.
I am selling a home and need a pest inspection, is that something you offer?
Yes. When selling a home, depending on the lending agency or type of loan, potential buyers may want an inspection for wood-destroying insects. We have certified technicians on staff capable of completing an NPMA-33 form.
