Termite Control in Winder
Termites are tiny pests that can cause significant damage to your home before even showing signs of infestation. Here in Winder, there are two types of termites that can get into your home. The most effective way to solve a termite infestation is with professional termite treatment.
Subterranean termites are the most common type of termite in the United States
They are attracted to soft and rotting wood in nature but will enter homes in search of damp areas. Since they require moisture to survive, these termites must build mud tubes when they travel. One of the most common signs of subterranean termites are mud tubes snaking their way up your foundation or exterior walls until they gain entry to your home.
Drywood termites do not require moisture and can enter your home from anywhere. Usually they are brought in unknowingly via infested furniture and firewood. They are drawn to hardwood such as furniture and support beams.
Common signs of termites include:
- Discolored drywall
- Peeling paint
- Hollow-sounding wood
- Pinpoint holes in the drywall
- Frass (sawdust-like droppings)
Without termite control, significant damage can be done to the support structures of your home. This can cost you lots of money in repairs.
If you see any signs of a termite infestation it’s important that you seek out a trained exterminator immediately. At Progressive Pest Control, we install a chemical soil barrier that can keep these destructive pests out of your home.
Ant Control in Winder
There are thousands of species of ants in the world but only a few that can cause problems in Winder. Ants are tiny and can find their way into our homes through the tiniest of openings. One of the main reasons ants enter homes is because they can smell food. Ways to prevent ants from smelling your food include:
- Storing grain and cereals in sealed plastic containers
- Keep sink clear of dirty dishes and food
- Sweep the floor regularly
- Take out the trash
- Don’t leave pet food out overnight
Our ant control program consists of a liquid barrier applied around the foundation of your home to keep ants from getting too close.
Flea & Tick Control in Winder
Fleas and ticks are common in Winder and can pose a threat to you, your family, and your pets. They can carry multiple diseases and can be a huge nuisance when they get into your home. Fleas and ticks commonly enter homes by hitching a ride on our pets when they are outside.
If you see any signs of an infestation it’s important to hire a flea and tick exterminator before the situation gets out of hand. Fleas and ticks can reproduce at rapid rates and can move to all rooms of your house.
At Progressive Pest Control we will identify areas where fleas and ticks are most likely to hide and treat the area. We also apply an 8-foot barrier around the foundation of your home to make sure fleas and ticks don’t get too close.
Mole Control in Winder
Moles are small mammals that burrow underground in search of insects. They come into our yards in search of grubs, worms, and other subterranean insects. Mole activity is usually a sign of a grub problem. Moles are not harmful to humans but their tunneling and digging can create unsightly mounds of dirt on the surface of your lawn that can kill your grass.
