Cedar Hills Termite Control
Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year, termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.
Things that attract termites include:
- Excess foliage
- Piles of wood
- Dead or decaying trees
- Cellulose material
- Clogged gutters
- Warm, dark places
- Moist soil
If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.
Pocket Gopher Removal in Cedar Hills, UT
Known for building complex underground tunnels, gophers damage lawns, destroy gardens, and kill trees in yards. These rodents can grow to be up to 10 inches long and prefer to live alone. They are easily identified by their brown fur, small ears, long teeth, small eyes, and short tails. As vegetarians, these pests survive off of shrubs, plants, roots, trees, and grass, making them a gardener’s worst nightmare.
To prevent these pests from making their way onto your property and destroying your yard, you can:
- Bury mesh wire fencing underground
- Lay down a barrier of gravel around the perimeter of your yard
- Plant your shrubs, veggies, and other plants in raised garden boxes
Cedar Hills Ant Control
Ants are one of the most common pests around. They are social insects, which means that they live and travel with their colonies. Ants are known by homeowners everywhere for invading countless kitchens and putting quite a damper on summer BBQs! After hibernating underground all winter, ants are ready to escape their nests and eat come springtime. Leaving trails of scent, ants guide hundreds or even thousands of soldiers from their colonies to their chosen source of food.
To prevent an ant invasion in your home, you need to:
- Avoid leaving cat or dog food outside
- Keep all food in airtight containers
- Avoid leaving leftover food sitting on the counter for too long
- Clean up and food or drink spills right away
- Keep floors swept and mopped
Spider Control in Cedar Hills, UT
Venomous or not, spiders are one of the most feared pests commonly found in homes. From wolf spiders to hobo spiders to black widow spiders to brown recluse spiders to house spiders, these pests are never welcome guests.
Without professional pest control, keeping spiders out of your home is very difficult to do. These critters have no trouble finding openings into your house and making themselves feel right at home.
Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:
- Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
- Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.
- Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.
Easily recognizable by the red hourglass shape on their bellies, black widows are a feared spider among many. While their bites don’t often cause death, their venom is 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake, making them quite dangerous. Symptoms of a black widow bite include nausea, paralysis of the diaphragm, and muscle aches.
Black widows survive off other pests and insects such as:
Black widows prefer to hide away in dark, dry, man-made structures such as barns, decks, outhouses, sheds, woodpiles, and more. Inside a home, they are commonly found in dimly lit crawl spaces, garages, and basements.
The Hobo spider hitched rides with humans along Pacific Northwest highways to distribute itself in 6 American states. Hobo spiders are aggressive house spiders that are quite difficult to identify due to the similarities they share with other spiders. They love to hide in dark, moist spaces—such as basements and crawl spaces—and are often found in holes, cracks, and crevices. Hobo spiders are not great at climbing, so you will almost always find them underground.
In order to prevent hobo spiders in your home:
- Seal common entry points such as cracks along the foundation
- Replace all window screens that have holes
- Clear away clutter from basement or garage
- Avoid storing shoes on the floor
