The treatments are intended to place measures in certain areas of your home which are prone to pests. We treat the inside and outside of the home, searching for holes and cracks where rodents and small pests may enter into your home. As the temperature drops, these pests will search for warmer temperatures and more plentiful sources of food. The best places for their survival is inside your home. Our 20+ point inspection will cover those points of entry, keeping the pests out.

termite colony damage TennesseeMulch beds are prime suspects to attract termites, since mulch is primarily made of chopped up wood bits. Since most mulch is placed in gardens, which are placed near the exterior of the home, the mulched areas are simple points of entry for pests. It is important to guard this area during the winter, and also in the spring as pests come out of hibernation.

The check and treat items in our 20+ point inspection list (#14-#17 on the list) cover the dark, enclosed spaces where pests can live, feed and grow safely. Be honest, when was the last time you checked the inside of your AC unit for nests? It isn’t likely that you have ever got down and looked into your AC units.

In addition to checking points of entry into your home and looking for unknown sources of pest invasion, we will also search a ten foot radius around your home for any other potential hazards and treat those areas. Can pests enter your home through the gutter spouts? How about underneath the crawl space? Our 20+ point inspection covers all of these points plus more!

There are so many possibilities for pest entry into your home that it really is a necessity to treat your home consistently. If you don’t, the damage done to your home and family could be catastrophic. The financial burden to clear a termite infestation is very difficult (upwards of $1,800). One of the easiest things you can do to care for your home is a normal routine of pest control from a professional service provider like Absolute Pest Control.

5 Most Common Winter Pests

What Are The 5 Most Common Winter Pests?

common-house-spiders.jpgAnts, bed bugs, birds, cockroaches, flies, rodents, spiders, termites….is your skin crawling yet? But rest assured, in the winter, some of those pests magically disappear into the great wilderness of not-in-my-house. However, it is important to note the word some here, mostly because it is not the word all. That’s right, they aren’t all gone. This means right now, buzzers and crawlers could be moving through the fabrics in your carpet or in your kids’ bedsheets. You should be able to experience the peace and comfort of knowing that you are safe. Knowledge is power and you should certainly keep your home safe. So here are the 5 Most Common Winter Pests and how you can identify them.

  1. Firewood pests usually enter through wood used in certain stoves and fireplaces. Wood which hasn’t been left in the summer to kill insects is prone to harbor insects. Wood which has been stored near a building, or on the ground can harbor rodents which can ride their way into your kitchen. If you brought any sticks or chop wood into or within fifty feet of your home in the last six months, did you look over every piece to visually inspect for insects and rodents? There’s something to think about. The best tool to fight these pests is with professional treatment.

  2. Overwintering insects are basically bugs that are hibernating. In Tennessee, they are adjusted to a long period of cold, brittle temperatures. When these particular insects take up residence in your home, they will come out of hibernation and emerge into the warmth of your winter home, thinking they have arrived at spring. So go ahead, turn it up to seventy-two.

  3. The house mouse might be two to two and a half inches long and carries a hairless tail twice as long as its body. If you see a light brown or gray ball of fur streak by you on the floor, it’s time to call the exterminator. They will eat through any food container, leave droppings all over the house or carry anyy of 35 diseases.

  4. Rats are not mice. They are usually brown with a gray underbelly. Your rat can grow up to 16 inches long from head to tail. Because of their size, they can cause real damage when they burrow in your backyard or climb up into the attic space and begin chewing on wires.

  5. The dreaded bed bug is not just a fair-thee-well when putting the kids to bed. Bed bugs have exploded back into American mattresses in the last few years. They were practically non-existent before World War II, but the swell lately is certainly worth watching. You can put on a mattress cover, but if you don’t have one now, read on. Bed bugs are very small (about 5 millimeters) and brown. They look a lot like ticks. Bed bugs feed on human blood and can live a year without a host. The good news is that they do not transmit diseases to humans, but they will crawl all over your skin and keep you awake. Every. Single. Night.
