If you live in the greater Atlanta area, Block Builders Pest Control and Suppliesis available to help you with any pest or wildlife problems that you may have. Like most Southerners, residents of Georgia have to deal with a variety of troublesome ant species. Each of these species creates its own unique problems for home and business owners.
Several cockroach species could invade your home such as the American cockroach, brown-banded cockroach and smokybrown cockroach. The insects are frequently more than 2 inches long. They have six legs, two antennae and brown or black bodies. Some species have wings. The bugs usually live in warm climates, and a number of cockroach species are attracted to moist locales.
If you begin searching for the pests in your home, then look for their three development phases. Cockroaches hatch from an egg, so be sure to look for egg cases. A newly hatched cockroach is a nymph. It will feature the same color and body shape as an adult, but nymphs are small and wingless. Nymphs go through several molting stages before they become adult bugs, which is the third and last phase.
If you own a cat or dog, pay close attention to their fur when grooming them. If fleas are spotted, be sure to take your pet to the vet for professional treatment and medication, as cat fleas can often lead to worms in both cats and dogs. Your veterinarian can also determine the best plan for preventing fleas in the future.
To address a flea problem, professional pest control services will use products that treat fleas in all stages of life. In addition, a follow-up treatment is typically conducted two weeks after the initial treatment to ensure that those fleas that were not killed the first time are terminated. Homeowners are also asked to vacuum their carpet and upholstery before and after treatment to stimulate mature fleas to emerge from their pupa and quickly die. The bag and the vacuum should then be removed from the home and cleaned, as fleas can escape from the vacuum and re-enter the home.
Professional pest control services will also treat the yard, as well as entry points to the home, to decrease the likelihood that fleas will enter the home again. It is a thorough process that requires diligence on the homeowner’s part, but one that results in very few recurring problems. And when your home and your pets are involved, that is the best possible scenario.
Rodents can get into your home in ways that you may not expect. Their flexible bodies can fit through a hole the size of a quarter. There are numerous open entries and vulnerable places around the rooflines and foundations that can easily allow admittance. Trees that overhang a home or office building provide access to these open entries and vulnerable places that may allow them to enter. Professional removal and excluding your home (closing off open entry points) is the best and safest approach to eradicating rodents.
Across the U.S., termites cost homeowners over $5 billion in damages every year. That’s more than floods, tornadoes and fires combined – yet termite damage is rarely even covered by homeowner’s insurance.
