Odorous House Ant
read moreOdorous house ants foraging in and around the home for food and/or water will often choose to establish colonies inside the structure since these items are readily available there. These ants are often seen in the kitchen and bathroom beginning in early spring. Inside the home they are generally found in wall voids, especially around hot water heaters and hot water pipes. While these ants do not cause structural damage, they can be very annoying due to their presence in our homes. Odorous house ants are found outdoors nesting beneath rocks, under logs and landscape timbers, under mulch, or just about anything lying on the ground can act as a nesting site for these ants.

So check now, make sure your house is sealed before the elm seed population explosion hits!
Carpenter Ant Pest Control
read moreCarpenter ants are a threat to structures because they make nests in and around our homes. Carpenter ants do not eat wood like termites do. They make extensive galleries in the wood to live in and raise their young. Carpenter ant colonies may reach the size of 2,000-3,000 ants. Ant activity is typically greatest between dusk and dawn. As a carpenter ant parent colony (where the queen resides) grows, it expands to the limits of the old nest and another suitable area for nesting becomes necessary.
Rats & Mice Exterminator
read moreRats and mice have adapted to live in close association with man, where they damage structures, chew wiring, eat and urinate on human and animal food, and carry many diseases. While these rodents are present around our homes throughout the year, they often become a problem in the fall and winter when they enter homes seeking warmth. Rats and mice have no respect for economic level or status. The most common rodents encountered in our area are the Norway rat, roof rat and the house mouse. Both of these rodents are good jumpers, climbers, swimmers and gnawers, which enable them better access to your home.
