common pest issues we treat in canton

As summer winds down every year in Canton, we see lots of stinging insects like wasps and hornets since this is the time of year when their nests are at their largest.

Common types of pests we treat in the area include:

carpenter ant control in canton

Carpenter ants are known for chewing through wood to build their elaborate nests. Many people believe that these ants eat wood, but they actually just tunnel through it and chew on it in order to break away pieces needed for their nests.

In order to avoid structural damage to your home, there are a few things you can do to prevent carpenter ant infestations.

These include:

  • Eliminate non-essential water sources in your yard and home

  • Trim trees and shrubs to keep them away from the home

  • Seal any cracks or openings around doors and windows

  • Store piles of wood away from the home

Because they prefer wood that is softened by moisture or fungus, it is best to monitor the wood surrounding your home and remove it if it is damp or coated in fungus.

house spider control in canton

House spiders are commonly found year-round in both residential and commercial areas of Canton. They come in a wide variety of sizes and colors, with some species larger than 1 inch in diameter and others as small as 6mm (less than ¼ of an inch!).

House spiders feed on household pests such as flies, mosquitoes, wasps, and ants. While they can bite if disturbed, their bites are relatively non-toxic and generally no more painful than a normal bee sting.

The designation “house spider” is used to cover a wide variety of species commonly encountered by humans in houses and other buildings. Some of the more common species of house spiders are wolf spiders, orb-weaver spiders, jumping spiders and daddy long-legs.

canton pavement ant control

Pavement ants, also called “slab ants” are often found in residential neighborhoods of Canton, especially near pavement sources like driveways and foundations.

Pavement ants are small and black in color. They have a wide diet that includes insects, seeds, honey, bread, meats, nuts, and cheese. If you leave out food that includes protein, fat or sugar for an extended period of time, there’s a good chance some nearby pavement ants will find it!

Pavement ants forage at distances of up to about 30 feet from their home nest, so if you see them in your home there is a good chance their nest is located somewhere on your property.

If you’ve seen spiders or ants in your home, don’t worry! Both of these pests, and 30+ more such as wasps and mice, are included in our popular Pest Free Guarantee™ service plan.
