Why Are Cockroaches In Frederick, MD So Hard To Get Rid Of?
Cockroaches in Frederick can be a nuisance and a health hazard. They spread diseases, contaminate food, and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies in young children and the elderly.
They lurk in the dark, hidden corners of your house and usually only come out at night, which means that cockroaches in your home can reach full infestation status before you even notice.
This nocturnal nature and desire to remain in the shadows also makes them hard to get rid of. Your can put out some bait, glue traps, and spray and you will likely kill some roaches, but a majority of these pests will still remain out of sight and untreated.
If you want to completely solve your roach problem, call us today and let one of our highly trained technicians get to work eliminating the roaches in your home.
Does Your Frederick Home Have A Carpenter Ant Problem?
When you think of pests that destroy wood, you probably think termites and not ants. But carpenter ants can quietly excavate the wooden areas of your home by tunnelling to build their nests. If they are left untreated, carpenter ants can put the structural integrity of your home in jeopardy as they cut more and more tunnels. And in a majority of cases, the damage they cause isn’t covered by your insurance.
Carpenter ants leave few external signs of their presence, but there are some things you should be on the lookout for:
- Wood that is moldy, covered in fungus, soft, or rotting is a preferred target of carpenter ants
- Sawdust-like shavings around your home
- Small openings on wooden surfaces
- The presence of swarmers and/or worker ants
If you see any of these signs around your home, your first reaction should be to call American Pest. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can get to work eliminating carpenter ants, which means more wood saved and less money out of your pocket.
