With our usually mild winters, pest control in Frisco, TX is something we North Texans have to think about all year round. Though some pests have their own form of cold-weather hibernation, many continue to hang around bothering us from January to December. Of those pests, some are can be handled with a fly swatter or a heavy shoe but others require professional pest control in Frisco, TX.
Bed bugs are tiny, flat and notoriously hard to find. They only appear in the wee hours of the morning, usually between 3 am and 5 am, to feed on human or animal blood before disappearing back into their hiding places and those hiding places can be anywhere – from the seams on a lampshade to floor moulding to the hems of clothing. Even when they’re deprived of blood meals, bed bugs are still able to survive for many months. They can survive freezing cold and extreme heat and, unfortunately, their numbers tend to explode in the fall and winter when children come home from their dorms and families travel for the holidays and stay in hotels. Both of these environments are havens for bed bug activity and those bugs will hitch rides on backpacks and inside suitcases to invade your home. There is no effective DIY treatment for bed bugs; only professional pest control can rid you of your bed bug problem.
Termites and other wood-boring bugs like carpenter ants do their dirty work behind the walls of your warm home, which is why they’re still a threat even in the coldest weather. Although you’ll likely see the swarmers, or reproductive termites, flying around during mating season, you’ll rarely see the workers chomping away on the wood members of your home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the entire year. Normally, you’ll only know you have a termite problem when you see hollows or small, black holes in sheetrock or buckling wood in window or door frames. Aside from some preventative measures you can take to make your house less appealing to them, there’s really nothing you can do to get rid of termites without the help of pest control in Frisco, TX.
Bees and wasps that make their homes in and on your home and other structures, like sheds and garages, are best left to people trained to deal with them. Many of these stinging insects can sting en masse if their hives or nests are threatened or even if they perceive a possible threat. More than a half million people a year are treated in emergency rooms for bee and wasp stings. Bees and wasps are especially dangerous to the elderly, pets and children, who may not understand the danger they’re in when they see or approach a beehive or wasp’s nest. Removal of hives and nests is not a DIY project. Only pest control experts have the right equipment and experience to remove a hive or nest on your property.
