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.

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.
