Pests We Handle
We are prepared to efficiently eliminate many types of pests that may make their way into your home. From insects to arachnids to rodents, we understand what makes these uninvited guests tick, how to remove them, and how to keep them from coming back. When you need residential pest control in Athens, GA, we typically recommend one of our Residential Bundle Packages for optimal protection at the best price. Our solutions always include free inspections, interior treatments, exterior treatments, and routine re-treatments.
Our experts have the tools and resources to eliminate many types of pests, including:
- Bed bugs. These nocturnal pests are highly adaptable and can quickly invade your home, hiding in mattresses, furniture, and clothing. Not only do their bites cause physical discomfort but the presence of bed bugs also often leads to significant psychological distress, including anxiety and insomnia.
- Cockroaches. Cockroaches are known to infest various areas of homes, including kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, causing unsightly damage and contamination. These insects carry a host of pathogens on their bodies and in their feces, which can contaminate food, utensils, and surfaces, potentially leading to food poisoning, diarrhea, or other illnesses. Cockroaches are also known to cause allergies and asthma, especially in children, due to the allergens present in their droppings and shed skin. They are extremely resilient and difficult to eradicate without professional assistance.
- Fire ants. The aggressive nature and painful sting of fire ants make these pests a serious nuisance that can potentially threaten the safety of household members – especially children and pets. Fire ants build large mounds to nest in that are often damaging to lawns and landscaping. Additionally, these pests are known to invade electrical equipment and chew through wiring, potentially leading to costly damage.
- Fleas. These blood-sucking parasites are notorious for their bites, which can cause severe itchiness, discomfort, and in some cases, allergic reactions. While fleas are often associated with pets, they can also infest homes and pose health risks to human occupants.
- Mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance due to their incessant buzzing and biting habits but also carriers of several harmful diseases, including Zika virus, West Nile virus, dengue fever, and malaria. Mosquitoes breed rapidly in stagnant water, so residential properties with birdbaths, clogged gutters, and other containers that trap water after rain can quickly become overwhelmed with these pests.
- Rodents. Rodents, including rats and mice, are a major concern for homeowners due to the extensive damage they can inflict on a property. These pests can chew through wood, drywall, and even soft metals, and their handiwork can compromise the structural integrity of your home. Beyond property damage, rodents are known carriers of numerous diseases. They can contaminate food and surfaces with their urine, droppings, and fur, leading to food-borne illnesses. Their constant gnawing can also result in damage to furniture, clothing, and valuable personal items.
- Spiders. While many spiders are harmless and even beneficial in controlling other pests, certain species are dangerous and can cause other headaches. Some can bite when threatened, causing discomfort, allergic reactions, or, in the case of venomous species like the black widow or brown recluse, more severe symptoms. You should always call pest control experts to deal with venomous spiders.
- Termites. Termites are silent destroyers. These wood-eating pests can cause extensive structural damage to a home and often go undetected until it's too late, which is why it is essential to call in the professionals at the first sign of trouble.
- Ticks. Ticks are parasitic pests that are well-known for their blood-sucking habits and ability to transmit a wide range of diseases, including Lyme disease. Ticks can infest both indoor and outdoor spaces and pose a threat to pets and humans alike.
