Little Elm, TX Pest Control Services
The warm and humid climate of Little Elm, TX, can mean two things: many pests will want to enter your home or business for coolness in the summer and warmth in the winter. Others will target your property for its moist environment. Whatever the case may be, there are plenty of pests to watch out for, and EcoGuardian Pest Control wants you to know something about the most common ones.
Ants usually like to stay outdoors, where they feed on honeydew and nectar, but they won't mind eating something in your trashcan or on your picnic table either. They may enter your home if there's enough overgrowth protecting the distance between the opening (say, a basement window) and their habitat. Spraying them with vinegar or spreading Borax can help in the short run, but other methods will only cause ants to scatter. Our team will trace them back to their nest for the most effective results.
Whether you encounter the reddish-brown American cockroach or the light brown German cockroach, just seeing a few of them means you already have an infestation. These pests like to be around water, so it's important to address problems like leaky pipes. Roaches carry bacteria like salmonella and streptococcus and can be especially dangerous for those with allergies. Let us come by because our treatments won't require you to set up traps everywhere.
Bed Bug Control
These are brown, oval-shaped pests that usually migrate to homes by latching onto people's clothing and belongings. There's a very real chance of you picking some up after staying at a hotel. Once inside, these pests will likely hide in the mattress for its snugness and its close proximity to a human host. Their bites can become itchy welts.
If you spot bedbugs in your mattress, don't throw it away or move to another room; the bedbugs will follow you and make the situation worse. Our team will identify bed bug hideouts and flush them out before applying an insecticide on them.
Termites come in two forms: drywood and subterranean. Drywood termites fly through the air, nest inside dry wood structures like furniture and picture frames, and simultaneously feed on them. Subterranean termites live underground and tunnel up to feed on moist wood that's in contact with the soil. Formosan termites are a fierce form of subterranean termite, with the average colony carrying about 2 million of them. To exterminate them, rely on us for liquid termiticide treatments and baiting systems.
Mosquitoes can not only ruin your summers outdoors but also transmit disease through their bites, including malaria and the West Nile virus. The problem will never go away unless their breeding grounds are identified and the eggs eliminated; this means searching for any areas of standing water. After doing so, our team can kill the mosquitoes with a power mister and use an essential oil-based product to discourage any future mosquitoes from migrating to your property.
