Why You Don't Want Big Bad Bugs In Your Abode

You might think that keeping ants and other insects out of your home is not that high of a priority, especially when compared to other maintenance issues. However, you might not realize just how dangerous insects can be to your home and even yourself.

A few examples of dangerous insects include cockroaches, mosquitoes, wasps, and flies. Cockroaches, mosquitoes, and flies spread a host of dangerous diseases that can make you seriously ill and even land you in the hospital if left untreated. Meanwhile, wasps sting and many social wasp species like to swarm by the thousands. If you're allergic to insect venom, even one sting can be enough to put you in mortal danger. But even if you're not allergic to insect venom, the sheer number of swarming hornets or yellow jackets can sometimes inject enough venom to cause a medical crisis.

Ants in Plymouth, meanwhile, can also give you diseases and destroy property. The invasive pharaoh ant, for instance, carries several strains of dangerous bacteria, including staphylococcus, streptococcus, and salmonella. And carpenter ants can do serious damage to your house because they tunnel through wood like most ants tunnel through dirt, leaving you with similar damage to some termite infestations. Effective ant control is vital for your property.

Why Ants And Other Insects Are So Hard To Control

Insect and ant control is often extremely difficult for homeowners because these insects are highly motivated to get into your home. They breed so fast that most over-the-counter solutions simply cannot keep up. 

Ant colonies, in particular, can be a nightmare to try to get out of your house. Ant colonies are complex and often colossal entities that can span across large swaths of your home. It can be next to impossible to find all of the areas an ant colony is infesting, and getting rid of the queen is a task in itself. She'll breed a new colony if you don't take her out. Even if you do take her out, many ant species can easily replace her in a matter of days. For this reason, you'll likely need professional ant control solutions to deal with your infestation.

Our Insect Control Process

Here at Combat Pest Control, our residential and commercial ant control programs can help you get rid of whatever ant species is ailing you. The first thing we'll do is come out to your house and conduct a thorough inspection of your property to determine what kind of ants you have and how they're entering your home. We will then create a plan of action to get rid of the problem. 

Next, we'll put our plan into action! Our ant experts have several methods for dealing with ant colonies. One of the most effective methods we employ is filling ant tunnels and blocking the entryways to their nests using the most effective and state-of-the-art technologies and techniques available. Best of all, our methods are as safe for pets and people as effective.

We also can inspect for and treat a wide variety of other insects in addition to ants.

Combat Pest Control Can Handle Any Insect, Big Or Small

While it's virtually impossible to get rid of an ant or insect infestation once you have one on your own, the good news is there are a few lifestyle changes you can make to prevent an invasion of multiple insect varieties. To keep the bugs outside where they belong, follow these insect and ant prevention tips:

  • Cover all indoor and outdoor garbage cans with tight lids at all times.
  • Store all pantry foods in airtight containers to mask smells. 
  • Seal up cracks and holes in your home's exterior. 
  • Fix moisture problems like condensation and poor drainage.
  • Ensure all the wood in your home is hard and dry to prevent carpenter ants. 

Just remember, the longer you allow an ant or insect infestation to linger in your home, the better established and harder to eradicate it will be. So if you see signs of an insect problem, don't hesitate to contact Combat Pest Control right away!
