We receive quite a few calls from folks who have recently moved to Texas and are in dire need of pest control for their home and yard. The creatures that usually cause newcomers the most concern are the things that bite and sting. It's mainly a matter of them acclimating to the new environment and learning how to control the pests.
Let's start with the things that fly. Flying insects like wasps can ruin a person's day. Wasps tend to be territorial about their nest, and they will sting if they feel threatened. They like to build their nests under a home's eves and also inside bushes. Unfortunately, that can put them near doorways and in landscaping close to the house. We offer wasp removal services.
Oh, and mosquitos! Can't forget the mosquitos that are unpleasant in every possible way: the sound they make, their bite, and the constant itch that follows. We have a great product and program for keeping mosquitos under control.
Then there are the crawlers - wolf spiders, in particular, cause quite a reaction. Wolf spiders are generally harmless (non-venomous) and great predators to help keep insects in check. However, they are big and scary looking, and of course, they don't belong in the house. So there is an extra bit of energy in the caller's voice when they contact us to remove wolf spiders. We also treat homes, out-buildings, and yards for spiders that are of great concern, such as brown-recluse spiders and black widow spiders.
Additionally, there are all the usual suspects of crawlers that we encounter in the pest control world: fleas, roaches, fire ants, ticks, and chiggers.
The key to keeping all these pests in check is persistence, and that's where our regular maintenance programs come in. Contact us today to learn how our pest control services will benefit you.
