Pest Invaders You Need To Look Out For In Cumming, GA

Keeping an eye out for the following pests that may invade your structure is essential if you want to stop these troublesome insects and rodents from taking over your property.

Ants

Ants crawling around your property are more than just an unsightly nuisance – they are pests that have the potential to contaminate surfaces and ruin stored food. Ants will gravitate to your property due to easy access to food, water, and shelter; these factors on easy display encourage ants to scavenge around indoor and outdoor areas. Over time, an ant infestation can grow out of control, and these pests will crawl across every surface, leaving pathogens behind.

To prevent ants from entering your property, take steps to reduce access to food, trash, excess moisture, and harborage areas like overgrown grasses outdoors and clutter indoors. You should also seal cracks around windows and doors to stop ants from slipping inside undetected.

Bed Bugs

Nothing is worse than an infestation of bed bugs crawling around your house, leaving behind itchy bites, staining your fabrics, and creating anxiety and sleep problems. And while many people think that bed bugs only appear in homes that are dirty or cluttered, the truth is that bed bugs can occur anywhere. Hot spots that often host bed bug infestations include hotels and motels, airports, libraries, schools, and office buildings, where lots of human traffic can become transportation for these hitchhiking pests as they hide in clothes or bags.

Signs of bed bugs that you need to keep an eye out for when out and about include the following:

  • Reddish or rust-colored stains on bed frames, sheets, fabric, or walls
  • Unpleasant, musty odors that are stronger in areas that bed bugs frequent
  • Sightings of live or dead bed bugs on the corners of mattresses, on sheets, or along the seams of furniture
  • Itchy bed bug bites that appear in a zig-zag pattern, typically appearing overnight on exposed limbs

Witnessing any of these signs around your property indicates that it’s time to contact Protector Pest Solutions for expert bed bug control.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are highly unhygienic and cause serious problems around your property when left to scavenge, reproduce, and invade spaces without treatment. The most common roach invaders seen around human structures include American, German, and smokey-brown cockroaches. Protector Pest Solutions can help you identify which of these troublesome species is invading your property.

You can help to keep cockroaches far away from your property by following prevention steps that include storing leftover food properly, disposing of trash promptly, and utilizing trash cans with lids and tightly sealed trash bags. Also, never leave out food, drinks, or dirty dishes. All of these steps help to cut down on cockroach scavenging.

Additionally, seal potential cockroach entry points around your property, like the cracks around windows, doors, the foundation of your structure, and utility areas. Protector Pest Solutions can help you with further cockroach control advice and removal.

Rodents

Rodents are well-known as one of the most unhygienic pests that you can end up with on your property. Several different types of rodents may invade human structures, but rats and mice are the most commonly encountered. If you don’t treat infestations of these pests quickly, your chances of picking up a sickness or incurring property damage increase greatly. After all, rodents carry and transmit serious illnesses such as salmonella, plague, hantavirus, and tularemia that may even become airborne around your property.

Additionally, rodents are incredibly prolific. What starts as a handful of rats or mice on your property rapidly becomes a full-blown infestation. And because rodents tend to hide in hard-to-reach areas around your property, professional rodent control is needed to eliminate them. DIY approaches are often less than effective and leave you at risk of prolonged pest infestations.

Protector Pest Solutions is ready to help you with your rodent control needs. Contact us the moment you suspect these pests are invading your property to take advantage of expert removal.

Stinging Insects

When it comes to stinging insects on your property, DIY pest control is not the best way to take care of these pests. Attempting stinging insect control all by yourself puts you at risk of stings and the potential for allergic reactions at the hands of these aggressive pests. Stinging insect nest removal is especially dangerous, as these insects are highly territorial and protective over their nesting areas.

The most common types of stinging insects you need to look out for on your property include hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets. Any of these pests can swarm, deliver painful stings, and terrorize those on your property with their presence.

Wood-Destroying Insects

Infestations of wood-destroying insects often go unnoticed as these pests burrow into the wood of your structure, leaving little trace of themselves until serious damage begins to accumulate. Both termites and carpenter bees can chew away at the wooden structures on your property until they are hollow and at risk of collapse. Though many individuals may consider DIY termite control treatments for these pests, these often don’t remove the source of your infestation and leave you with prolonged issues and costly damages over time.

Instead of attempting to remove wood-destroying insects by yourself, contact Protector Pest Solutions for regular inspections and assistance with active infestations. Our team will stop at nothing to remove these pests and leave your property pest-free.
