Pest Control Graphic

The hot summer months are coming and with them comes an invasion of spiders and insects.  Many just aggravate us, some bite or sting us and a few destroy our houses.  So, we arm ourselves with the latest pesticide sprays, bug bombs, and bait traps and go to war.

Sometimes we win but a lot of the time, we lose. Why? Because for most pests, the ones we see are just the tip of the iceberg. Bugs know how to hide and they know to come out at night to wreak their havoc when we’re asleep. So when should you raise the white flag and call us at Bug Commander Pest Control?

You Find Termites, Carpenter Ants, or Other Wood-Boring Insects

Termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and powderpost beetles can eat the wooden, structural beams in your home and you probably won’t know it until visible damage is done.  Even if you know what evidence to look for with these pests, you will still not have the weapons to treat them effectively.  There really is no such thing as a good DIY treatment, especially with termites.

You Suspect a Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bugs are notoriously hard to get rid of. They are tiny; they come out between 3 AM and 5 AM to feed on your blood (or your pet’s blood), and they hide easily during the day. There are some things you can do when you suspect you have bed bugs but in general, you will not be able to stem the bed bug tide.

You See a Swarms of Bees, Yellow Jackets, or Wasps Near Your Home

Swarming insects will attack en masse if their nests or hives are threatened. They pose a danger not only to people who are allergic to their venom, but to anyone who might be stung multiple times. Only professionals with the proper equipment should remove nests and hives that are heavily populated.

Fire Ant Mounds in Your Yard

You can “kill” one mound but fire ants simply relocate. Their tunnels are underground where you can’t get to them. Fire ants sting pets and children and are especially dangerous to people that are sensitive or allergic to their venom.

While there are hundreds of insects and spiders you can encounter in your yard and home, some are simply too hard for the average homeowner to eliminate. Only trained technicians with the right equipment and chemicals can stop them.
