Termites don't carry diseases or bite, but they are one of the most feared pests in Pennsylvania. Luckily, we're not in a high activity area, and most modern homes have been constructed to resist termite damage. However, this doesn't mean that your home or property is immune from drywood termites or Eastern subterranean varieties. Damage from subterranean termites is typically found in crawlspaces, basements, around doors and in the lower level of homes. Drywood termites are slighter larger and occupy drier locations. They are found in attics and will damage wooden furniture. Regular inspections are the best defense. If you've seen insects resembling flying ants or have uncovered wood damage, call us immediately. We will apply a combination of bait stations and termiticides that will eradicate the entire colony and defend your home.
Rats, mice, squirrels and other rodents are among the most common pests in Mars, Pennsylvania. They can damage drywall and building materials, and they create fire hazards by disrupting electrical systems. However, health concerns are one of the most dangerous aspects of rodent infestations. The risk of rodents spreading diseases like salmonella, hantavirus and more than 30 other diseases is extremely high because they occupy kitchens and areas where food, water and other resources are found. If you have a problem with rats or mice, protect yourself by having a professional trap and remove the offending pests. Then, the area can be sealed and sanitized to prevent future problems.
Bed Bug Control
Except when they're feeding, bed bugs are exceptionally reclusive. They hide in cracks and the seams of furniture and upholstery. In the beginning, infestations are typically confined to sleeping areas. Then, they move to other rooms. This is especially true if homeowners have applied store-bought pesticides. In that case, colonies simply disperse to other areas. You're most likely to encounter bed bugs at night and in the early morning. They're flat, oval, brownish and measure one-quarter of an inch long. Multiple treatments from a pest control professional are required to eradicate adults and larvae in residential and commercial settings.
