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! Schedule a FREE Inspection, we’d be happy to help ensure termites never threaten your home or livelihood.

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 EARWIGS!

Earwigs. Unsettling as the name may be, these wiggling bugs do not, in fact, look to crawl or wiggle into the ears of unsuspecting humans (although there have been recorded cases over the years). They cannot burrow into your brain and prefer spaces full of rotting moist wood to our ear canals. Even when they’re not finding their way into our ears and nightmares, this wiggler can become a nuisance. These bugs do travel on the ground and can carry bacteria associated with the places they go. These little bugs prefer cool, wet areas and can become serious garden problems. They also can be indicative of larger problems when found in the home, from water damage to carpenter ants and termites. The best way to prevent earwigs and many other unwelcome insects is to make sure to reduce moisture points around your property, sealing gaps in your exterior walls and foundation. It’s a good practice to keep vegetation around your home trimmed back and keep piles of wood, compost, or other organic material a good distance from your living quarters. If you find yourself a victim of any of the pests mentioned here, you can depend on us here at 855Bugs to handle the problem and prevent future issues from arising. Contact us today for a free inspection. We’ll be glad to help you live a life free from Earwig worry.
