TERMITES

Termites. It’s incredible to witness what kind of damage such a small creature can inflict. With an amenable climate for these pests, Texas is considered an environment highly prone to termites and the infestations that can come with them. These insects can eat your home from the inside out, causing problems that can start as cosmetic and wind up as structural. There are a few different species that inhabit Texas, winged termites, subterranean termites, and dry termites being the most prolific. Each of these can cause problems, and the best way to know if your home is safe is to have a professional inspection. Thankfully 855Bugs provides free inspections and peace of mind with our Don’t Bug Me Plan. It’s recommended to have your home inspected at least once a year by a professional, and if you’re considering building a new home, we’d be happy to talk to you about our 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! Give us a call, and we’d be happy to help ensure termites are never a threat to your home or livelihood.

BED BUGS

Bed bugs are often the most dreaded bug infestation in the eyes of the general public. If you’re terrified of bed bugs entering your home, you’re not alone! Let’s take a look at bed bugs: their appearance, their behaviors, myths, prevention, and, the topic everyone wants to know about, bed bug treatment.

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.

WHAT IS THE DON’T BUG ME PLAN?

Whether you call us pest control experts, exterminators, or even the bug guys, our results are the same: we keep your home pest-free year-round when the stakes are high. Learn more about our annual treatment plan below.

 

WHAT IS THE DON’T BUG ME PLAN?

 

At 855Bugs, we offer a year-round residential pest control program called the “Don’t Bug Me Plan.” When you sign up for this annual service agreement, our professional, knowledgeable technicians come to your home quarterly to ensure that your property is free of invaders from “curb to curb.”

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

After a thorough initial interior and exterior treatment, your property is re-inspected and treated exteriorly quarterly. The inspection covers all well-known Central Texas pests like ants, roaches, spiders, fleas, ticks, millipedes, centipedes, earwigs, and a slew of others, as well as rodents like mice, rats, and other occasional invaders. As always, your home and property are covered with free callbacks if needed.

The “Don’t Bug Me Plan” plan provides a safer alternative as pests are identified and targeted on a preventative and as-needed basis. With an unconditional 90-day warranty that pests stay OUT of your home, you’re always covered, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

WHY DO I NEED YEAR ROUND PEST CONTROL?

OFFENSE IS THE BEST DEFENSE

Though you may not see signs of pests or rodents in your home, it does not mean your home isn’t susceptible to an invasion. Like humans, pests require food, water, and shelter to survive. If you don’t have a sound barrier in place, they will find a way to invade.

Pests and rodents not only cause damage to your home, but they also carry diseases. Protect your property and family by being proactive rather than reactive with the rodent and spider pest control Central Texas residents trust!

LESS PESTICIDE EXPOSURE

It may seem counterintuitive that you, your family, and your pets are exposed to less pesticides when you’re regularly treating your home, but, believe it or not, it’s true! How is that possible? After the initial treatment, we focus our attention on the exterior of your home. By treating the perimeter on a consistent and scheduled basis, pests and rodents cannot make their way into your home. Once we treat the interior, we rarely need to treat it again as we routinely treat the outside.

SAVE YOUR MONEY

In the long run, year-round pest control will save you money. By keeping pests out with our “Don’t Bug Me Plan,” you are helping to avoid the higher costs of treating an infestation. When you are on the offense rather than the defense, you are dodging some potentially high-priced home repairs, clean-up costs, and medical expenses caused by pests taking up residence in your home.

SLEEP EASIER

A pest free home means a more restful night’s sleep. There are so many reasons insects and rodents keep people up at night. From scurrying sounds in the attic, itchy bug bites, and a fear of spiders or roaches crawling on the walls around you (or heaven forbid the bed!), the physical and emotional effects can take a toll on your sleeping habits. Stop the insomnia by keeping pests out in the first place with the bug and spider pest control Temple and Waco, Texas love!

HASSLE FREE

And, when we say always, we mean always! We have a technician on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
