thornton spider control
You’ll find a variety of spiders in Thornton, including black widows, wolf spiders and common house spiders. Black widows are the most dangerous of the three, but that doesn’t mean you want any of the other spiders in your home either!
Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:
- Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
- Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.
- Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.
The South Platte River on the southeast side of town is a haven for the insects that spiders eat so you’ll often find them in this area, both inside your home and out in your yard.
Easily recognizable by the red hourglass shape on their bellies, black widows are a feared spider among many. While their bites don’t often cause death, their venom is 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake, making them quite dangerous. Symptoms of a black widow bite include nausea, paralysis of the diaphragm, and muscle aches.
Black widows survive off other pests and insects such as:
Black widows prefer to hide away in dark, dry, man-made structures such as barns, decks, outhouses, sheds, woodpiles, and more. Inside a home, they are commonly found in dimly lit crawl spaces, garages, and basements.
The Hobo spider hitched rides with humans along Pacific Northwest highways to distribute itself in 6 American states. Hobo spiders are aggressive house spiders that are quite difficult to identify due to the similarities they share with other spiders. They love to hide in dark, moist spaces—such as basements and crawl spaces—and are often found in holes, cracks, and crevices. Hobo spiders are not great at climbing, so you will almost always find them underground.
In order to prevent hobo spiders in your home:
- Seal common entry points such as cracks along the foundation
- Replace all window screens that have holes
- Clear away clutter from basement or garage
- Avoid storing shoes on the floor
- Keep basement dry
wasp exterminator in sheridan
During late summer and early fall, wasps come out in full force as they search for food to sustain themselves through winter. While they typically do not sting unless they are provoked, having a wasp colony near your home can be incredibly unsafe for you and your family, particularly for those who are allergic to wasps. Unlike bees, wasps can sting over and over again thanks to their smooth stingers.
To keep wasps away, you should:
- Avoid leaving meat or sweet drinks sitting outside
- Keep your trashcans sealed up
- Keep your doors and windows shut
- Don’t leave trash lying around
- Cover or fill any holes in the ground
If you discover a wasp nest on your property, it is best to reach out to a professional pest control team right away.
termite control in sheridan, co
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.
carpenter ant removal in sheridan, co
Carpenter ants are quite common in Sheridan, like they are elsewhere in the Denver Area. These large, black ants love to gnaw on damp wood, even if they don’t eat it like termites do.
Because of this, you’ll often find them in and around homes along the South Platte River. However, they won’t turn down dry wood, so don’t make the mistake of thinking there is no need to worry if you don’t live near the river or have any water damage in your home!
As carpenter ants burrow into the wood, they can weaken the structure of your home and damage siding, fencing, wooden outdoor furniture and more.
For total protection all year against carpenter ants (plus more than 30 other Colorado pests), give us a call today and ask about our Pest Free Guarantee™ service!
sheridan rodent removal
Mice, rats and other small rodents make their homes in the many open spaces in Sheridan, including Alice Terry Park and Barnes Park. When the temperature drops outside in the winter, they seek refuge from the cold inside area homes. They tend to be reluctant to leave even when the weather warms up once again. They reproduce rapidly so they can quickly overrun your property if you don’t deal with the infestation right away!
We offer multiple Rodent Control services, including options for treating an existing infestation and options for longer-term prevention to keep future infestations from happening.
Rats are one of the most dreaded pests around. With the ability to squeeze through a hole as small as the size of a quarter and chew through glass, cinderblock, wire, and aluminum, rats have no problem making their way into homes.
They can potentially wreak tons of havoc on a home by:
- Contaminating food by eating it, urinating on it, and leaving droppings on it
- Spreading diseases and bacteria throughout a home
- Chewing through wires, which can start a fire
- Chewing through the structure of a home
In order to keep these pests away, seal any holes or cracks along the foundation of your home, store food in airtight containers, keep your home clean, and keep all storage areas dry and clean.
Mice can squeeze themselves through a hole the size of a pen, which means it is incredibly easy for them to make their way into a home. They typically enter homes in the winter months looking for a place that can provide shelter, food, and water. These tiny pests carry over 200 human pathogens, making them incredibly harmful. By leaving urine and droppings throughout a home, they can seriously endanger a family.
To keep mice out of your home, you should:
- Seal any holes along the foundation of your home
- Never leave food out
- Empty your kitchen trash cans often
- Keep your home clean and free of clutter
- Keep storage areas organized, clean, and dry
pests are no match for proof.
