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.

DON’T BUG ME PILL BUGS!

Pill Bugs. Rollie Pollies. If there’s a cute landlocked crustacean, this is it. Matter of fact, this is the only crustacean that’s been able to adapt to living on land. Although this pest pales in comparison to many of the others we face here in Texas, it can still be frustrating to wakeup to a handful of them sprawling around an entry point of your home. These bugs are as harmless as bugs come, as they don’t spread disease or bite (although they are still susceptible to carrying bacteria as they travel). These crawling circles need moisture, and won’t survive more than a few days without it. If you find yourself inundated with pillbugs for a prolonged amount of time you should look to eliminate any points of moisture around your property, starting with areas around your home and moving outward. Here at 855Bugs, we know how to keep pests from showing up, and how to exterminate them when they do. Give us a call today to schedule a free inspection and find out more about our Don’t Bug Me Plan.
