TERMITES

Termites. It’s incredible to witness the damage such a small creature can inflict. With an amenable climate for these pests, Texas is highly prone to termites and the infestations that can come with them. They can eat your home from the inside out, causing problems that can start as cosmetic and wind up as structural. Three species inhabit Texas, winged termites, subterranean termites, and dry termites being the most prolific. The best way to know if your home is safe is to get a professional inspection. We recommend having your home inspected by a professional once a year. We also offer pre-construction treatments that help ward off termites from day one. 855Bugs has been helping people in the Waco and Temple area manage termites for over 10 years!

RODENTS

Mice, rats, and other rodents are extremely resourceful and persistent creatures. Did you know a mouse can squeeze through an opening as small as ½ inch? And, don’t think you’re safe because that hole is only ¼ inch. They can easily chew through many surfaces to make that hole large enough to sneak through. Rats are excellent swimmers. While it certainly doesn’t happen often, rats can swim through sewer lines and wind up in your toilet bowl.

DON’T BUG ME DEAD SMELLS!

It’s a fate we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemies. Mice, squirrels, and other small rodents finding their way into your home can wreak havoc on your house, as well as your peace of mind. One of the ways these issues can magnify is when these animals happen to die inside the walls and attic spaces of your home. Most of the time, the death of this small animal will go unnoticed. The animal will die in an area with enough ventilation to prevent the smell from amassing in living spaces. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. When they perish in unventilated or exceedingly hot areas, a single small mouse can produce a stench that will drive even the stiffest nosed of us out of the space. 

The best way to eliminate dead smells is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Ensuring you home is well sealed goes a long way. Making sure not to leave appetizing bits of food and debris out and unsealed also helps. If you find yourself in a situation where it is too late for prevention, removing the dead smell in your home is somewhat self-explanatory. You have to get rid of it. If you cannot access the space where the smell is coming from, you have the choice to wait out the smell or tear into your home in an effort to remove the decaying material. The professionals at 855Bugs can evaluate your home and property, giving you tips and helping ensure that you won’t have to deal with noxious smells or the pesky critters that cause them.
