Expert Pest Solutions In Taylor Lake Village, TX

We have many pests that get into homes and businesses in our area. Some are accidental pests. They don't really prefer to be inside man-made structures. Some prefer to live indoors. It is no accident when you find these pests indoors. Today, we're going to discuss some general ways Harris County pest control works to keep pests out, and how unique indoor pests present unique challenges.

Residential Pest Control In Taylor Lake Village, TX

The primary way the service team here at Men In Black Pest Control keeps pests out of Taylor Lake Village homes is by providing routine perimeter pest control and general pest maintenance around structures.

  • Routine inspections catch pest problems early in the season and address them so that they don't get inside during the year. One example of this is the removal of wasp nests.
  • De-webbing removes unsightly webs and also works to deter spiders from creating webs.
  • Targeted perimeter treatments around windows, doors, utilities, trash receptacles, and other key zones, stop certain pests before they get inside.
  • Granular products provide long-lasting residual control of potential household pests that come into the perimeter around your home.

These and other routine home pest control services target pests before they get inside. For most pest problems, this is all that is needed to keep a pest-free environment in your home.

Commercial Pest Control In Taylor Lake Village, TX

There are many businesses that benefit from perimeter protection. Perimeter pest control can keep pests out of rental units and prevent tenants from deciding to live somewhere else. Perimeter pest control can keep key pests out of storage units. Perimeter pests control is essential for maintaining pest-free environments in health facilities. A protected perimeter is the core of any commercial pest control plan.

The Trick To Spotting A Bed Bug Problem In Your Taylor Lake Village Home

One of the most important facts you should know about bed bugs is that they don't live in your yard. These are indoor insects. Your perimeter protection will do nothing to keep bed bugs out of your home. The secret to keeping bed bugs out is knowing how to spot a problem.

When you detect bed bugs while away from home, you can prevent those bugs from hitching a ride home with you. Early detection of bed bugs in your home allows you to deal with them quickly and prevent a whole lot of misery.

Here's how you find evidence of bed bugs:

  • Examine pillowcases, linen, and bedspreads. If you see black fecal spotting, this is strong evidence of a bed bug infestation.
  • Examine the seams of mattresses and box springs. It helps to use a probing tool, such as a debit card. Bed bugs can tuck themselves deep into tight spaces. A debit card can bring bugs, shed skins, white eggs, or feces out of hiding. 
  • A flashlight can help you as you look for bed bugs. When you shine a light into a recess or crevice and see something wiggle, there is a good chance it is a bed bug. These insects don't like the light. Use your flashlight to check bed frames, electronics, baseboards and outlets. You can also use it to look under mattress labels.
  • Learn what bed bugs look like in all stages of development. The bed bugs that are likely to be found attached to your skin are bed bug nymphs. These can look like bright red bugs, rather than the rusty-colored, seed-shaped bugs you've seen in pictures on the internet.
