Daphne, AL Pest Control
To avoid health issues and structural damage, it is essential to keep pests as far away from residential and business settings as possible. Without a comprehensive plan to prevent and eliminate an infestation, even meticulously maintained properties and their grounds can become overrun with one or more pests. You should look for warning signs of a possible infestation and take prompt action to protect your property, family, employees and guests.
Bed Bug Treatments
Bed bugs are small oval insects that feed on human blood. While the bite of a bed bug is usually similar to that of a mosquito, it can cause a skin rash and an allergic reaction as well as a secondary infection due to forceful scratching. The thought of being attacked by these blood-sucking pests while sleeping causes some people to experience insomnia and anxiety. These reddish-brown, nocturnal parasites hide in the folds of bedding and other fabric as well the crevices of furniture and moldings. Signs of an infestation include tiny blood spots on mattresses, small white eggs and shed skin. Improper treatments generally prolong the infestation because it causes the insects to spread to other areas of your home or business. These measures may also not kill all the eggs and larvae.
Extending your living space outdoors with a pool, deck or patio can make your home more enjoyable, but mosquitoes can ruin these outdoor gatherings. Their annoying, itchy bites can cause redness and swelling. These winged pests also pose a serious health risk by spreading a variety of diseases, such as West Nile virus and encephalitis. It is important to remove sources of standing water in which mosquitoes lay their eggs. Change the water in birdbaths and wading pools weekly. In addition to eliminating or reducing water sources and various types of vegetation that attract mosquitoes and foster their breeding, control measures may include an application of insecticide, growth regulators and microbials that kill larvae and adults.
Termites cause more than a billion dollars in damage each year. Hidden away inside walls, floors and ceilings, they devour wood 24 hours a day weakening the structural elements of buildings. They may also feed on cellulose insulation, books and pool liners as well as trees and shrubs. Signs of a possible infestation include migratory swarms and mud tunnels extending along the base of a foundation, support piers and sill plates as well as hollowed-out wood. Often times, the infestation can go unnoticed for years as the termites usually are hidden from view. Because these insects are mistaken for ants, it is important that you have your home or business inspected regularly.
