Patterson Pest Control
While the occasional ant or spider meandering around your yard is nothing to worry about, many homeowners find that their homes or yards are overrun with unwanted pests. At Peace of Mind, we provide complete Patterson pest control services and can eliminate many common pests, including the following:
To a certain extent, having some ant activity in your yard can be a good thing. Some species of these tough, hard-working insects aerate the soil and keep it healthy. However, some types of ants are destructive and some will bite humans and other animals. If you see large numbers of ants on your sidewalks, driveways and near trash cans, there are thousands more ants that you don’t see. Likewise, if ants are invading your home, it is time to call our office and schedule your Patterson pest control services.
Roaches are disgusting little creates, and no homeowner every wants to see these pesky bugs lurking around trash cans or scampering across the kitchen floor. Chances are if you see one or two roaches on your property or inside your home, hundreds more are hidden in the walls or under mulch or other areas. Not only are roaches gross, they can be a health hazard, especially if you have people in your home with asthma or allergies.
While the sound of crickets chirping might conjure up images of summer evenings from long ago, these noisy bugs can be a nuisance. Crickets can do some damage to the plants and flowers on your property and if you have a cricket infestation, many people do find their constant noise irritating. If you have bothersome crickets, this is another insect our Patterson pest control experts can eliminate.
4. Fleas & Ticks
If you own a pet, you are well aware of the dangers that fleas and ticks pose to your animals. Of course, these pests also can bite people and while flea bites are more irritating than they are dangerous, ticks can carry serious diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. If you have fleas and ticks on your property or perhaps a flea infestation inside your home, contact us as soon as possible.
Spiders, like most pests, do have a beneficial place in the world, but several species are extremely dangerous to humans. The black widow, brown widow, hobo spider and brown recluse all can harm humans, sometimes fatally. If you see any of these types of spiders inside your home or around your property, give us a call. Additionally, there are many other types of spiders that are perfectly harmless, but still a nuisance if they are invading your home or putting up webs all over your property.
You really need only mention the word “earwig” to induce an unpleasant reaction and make one want to cover their years. Of course, earwigs don’t actually burrow into our ears, but they can damage many types of flowering and ornamental plants, as well as your garden vegetables. These pests also can invade your home, and they particularly love to hunker down in moist area, either inside your home or underneath mulch, piles of leaves and other garden debris.
7. Aphids & Whiteflies
These pests leave a distinct sticky white residue on the leaves of plants and trees. We provide aphid and whitefly treatment as an additional service during certain times of the year to ensure that your plants and trees look their best throughout the beautiful spring and summer months.
Termites, of course, are one of the world’s most destructive pests and if you have notice even just a tiny bit of termite droppings or a pile of wings in your home, you definitely have some level of a termite problem. Removing termites is another additional service we provide. We offer a free limited termite inspection (non-real estate transactions) and can provide you with various treatment options and even provide you with most termite-related repairs.
Our Patterson pest control team can handle all of these common pests as well as just about any others you might encounter, including any rodent problems you might be having. We handle both interior and exterior infestations and to ensure that the pests in our area don’t continue to invade your home, we will develop an Integrated Pest Management Program that includes monthly or bi-monthly service cycles depending on your needs.
Many people ask us why a professional exterminator is a better option that attempting do-it-yourself treatments. The truth is most DIY treatments only eliminate pests temporarily or only eliminate pests that you can see. Most pests hide in places where it is difficult for homeowners to treat. Additionally, distinct species require different types of treatments and a professional exterminator can identify exactly what species of pests you have and eliminate them in all of their hiding places.
If you have any type of pests, give us a call today and we will set up an appointment. Our general Patterson pest control services are guaranteed or we will return to your house and fix the issue at no charge.
