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 peace of mind with our Free Inspection. 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.

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 GERMAN ROACHES!

The German Cockroach. Blatella Germanica. These roaches like our kitchens. Our bathrooms. Anywhere they can find moisture, food, and relative warmth. These roaches are more likely than their American counterpart to invade the places we consider our own. This roach isn’t a picky eater, dining on everything from pantry staples and paper to garbage and excrement. These little disease vectors are often as unnerving as they are unwelcome and can quickly overtake areas of a home. One female German Cockroach can generate more than 30,000 roaches in a calendar year, so it’s imperative that you act quickly when you spot these pests in your home. Here at 855Bugs, we have the experience and equipment necessary to not only remove these pests, but to keep them from coming back. Contact us today to learn more about services like our Don’t Bug Me Plan and to schedule a free inspection!
