tempe ant control
Ants are one of the most common pests around. They are social insects, which means that they live and travel with their colonies. Ants are known by homeowners everywhere for invading countless kitchens and putting quite a damper on summer BBQs! After hibernating underground all winter, ants are ready to escape their nests and eat come springtime. Leaving trails of scent, ants guide hundreds or even thousands of soldiers from their colonies to their chosen source of food.
To prevent an ant invasion in your home, you need to:
- Avoid leaving cat or dog food outside
- Keep all food in airtight containers
- Avoid leaving leftover food sitting on the counter for too long
- Clean up and food or drink spills right away
- Keep floors swept and mopped
cockroach control in tempe
It is said that for every cockroach you find in your home during the day, there are thousands more hiding behind the walls. While many people assume that they only inhabit extremely dirty homes, they actually will make their way into any home that can provide them with food, shelter, warmth, and water.
These critters are able to make their way inside a home by traveling:
- Through drains and sewers
- On grocery bags, luggage, or furniture
- Through screen doors or open windows
- Through the space between a door and the floor
- Along plumbing pipes
Once inside, they tend to prefer hiding in cracks and crevices, behind walls, near food storage areas, under sinks, and other dark hiding places. These critters are notorious for infesting homes and businesses throughout Guadalupe area.
tempe termite control
Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year, termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.
Things that attract termites include:
- Excess foliage
- Piles of wood
- Dead or decaying trees
- Cellulose material
- Clogged gutters
- Warm, dark places
- Moist soil
If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.
cricket control in tempe
Generally, crickets prefer to live and breed outdoors. However, once they find their way into your yard, it is very easy for them to get inside your home. On occasion, they enter a home in search of food, shelter, and moisture. Once inside, they feed on clothing and invade basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
To keep crickets away from your home, there are several precautions you can take. These include:
- Seal any cracks or holes along the foundation of your home
- Clear away excess debris, such as leaves, from your yard
- Keep piles of wood off the ground and away from your home
- Install yellow bug lights around your home to keep crickets away
- Make sure your attic is well ventilated
tempe earwig removal
Earwigs are creepy little critters with pincers. They hide out in dark, humid places during the day. Because they like to live in damp areas, we often see them in homes and businesses along the Salt River at the north end of town.
Especially in the summer when the weather is hot and dry, they make their way into area homes seeking water. You’ll typically find them in your kitchen, bathrooms, basement or other areas with plenty of moisture.
bed bug removal in tempe
With Arizona State University and large regional and national sporting events, Tempe sees a lot of visitors each year, and they can bring bed bugs with them on their clothes and luggage.
From the local hotels, they can then hitch rides on passersby, carrying them to homes throughout the city. As is to be expected, we see them in the most concentrated numbers in areas with plenty of hotels, like near the university and Tempe Sports Park.
