Rest Easy with Bed Bug Treatment

As headlines in recent years have shown us, bed bug infestations are a problem you really don’t want to have. They’re small, wingless parasites that feed on blood. They often get into your home by hitchhiking on people, animals, and fabrics like those on your clothes or a backpack. Bed bugs bite the skin, resulting in red swollen bumps that are itchy and uncomfortable. 

Bed bug extermination can sometimes be tricky since they tend to be resistant to chemicals, but Terminix pest exterminators are up to the task. We offer hassle-free elimination and can even offer our advice when you purchase a new mattress, box spring encasements, or bed bug monitors to keep your home a bed bug-free zone. 

Termite Control That Packs a Punch

If there’s one thing Terminix does extremely well, it’s termite control. Termites are some of the worst pests you can have, which is why it’s essential to know the signs and be ready to treat an infestation quickly. Call on a Terminix termite exterminator and rest easy knowing you’ve got the best in the business ready to get those termites packing.

Termites feast on wood and other food products with cellulose, like cardboard boxes. This means you want to avoid termites at all cost before they take a bite out of your home (and wrack up thousands of dollars’ worth of damage). The three most common types of termites our Terminix exterminators treat for are subterranean termites, drywood termites, and Formosan termites, which are local to the Carolinas. 

Many pest control companies don’t offer treatment for Formosan termites, an especially pernicious species of termite because their infestations can be particularly challenging to remove and they can do the most damage. But here at Terminix, we aren’t afraid of Formosan termites, and our services cover them if they’ve taken up residence in your home. 

Choosing Terminix termite control with our Pest Free Guarantee – and our Formosan termite services – will give your home the best coverage. 

Rodent Control for Rats and Mice

No one wants to find a mouse in the house! Rats and mice often depend on humans for food, so every so often you might find yourself in need of a mouse or rat exterminator. Hiring rodent exterminators is particularly important because mice and rats can spread diseases and contaminate surfaces or food they come in contact with. Additionally, they can damage your property by gnawing on wires or stealing things to make their nests.

Terminix offers thorough rodent control services if you need a mouse exterminator or someone to send rats packing. We also recommend you keep your home free of clutter and store food in heavy plastic or glass containers and never leave it sitting out.

Take a Bite Out of Mosquito Extermination

There’s almost nothing worse than a mosquito bite. While mosquitoes might seem like something we all just need to live with, it’s important to remember that mosquitoes can spread dangerous diseases. The best mosquito control is often staying vigilant by removing opportunities for mosquito breeding near your home. 

Mosquitoes develop in water, typically preferring small, isolated puddles. If you have a bird bath, fountain, or other small water features, it’s important to recognize that these could be ideal mosquito breeding grounds. Any small container of water that can hold for seven days has the ability to breed mosquitoes, including flowerpots or tarps.Taking steps to dump these after rainfall is important for backyard mosquito control.

If mosquitoes start buzzing around your home and you need some additional mosquito treatments, our Terminix exterminators can use the latest treatments to help you with backyard mosquito control. 

Call On Our Cockroach Exterminator

Not very many people like bugs, but people especially have an aversion to big bugs – and the cockroach is a big one for sure! Most cockroaches live in the woods and are rarely seen, but when you do spot a cockroach in your home, you typically want it out of there as soon as possible.

There are several species of cockroach, from the German cockroaches which are small and light brown with black stripes on their backs, to larger cockroaches which are dark brown with wings. These are sometimes called “palmetto bugs,” especially in South Carolina. 

While some cockroaches live in the woods, German cockroaches have adapted to life with humans and now are only found indoors. Cockroaches are a health and safety issue, so it’s best to call a cockroach exterminator as soon as you see one in your home. 

In the meantime, don’t leave food out and regularly clean appliances or countertops to make sure you aren’t attracting these bugs. Palmetto exterminators or a roach exterminator should be able to rid your home of these pests. 

Other Types of Pest Control

There are many other kinds of pests that may choose to pay a visit to your home, from ants to bees, fleas, and spiders. Oh my!

Terminix exterminator services extend to any kind of bug or insect removal, so if you want spiders to scram, fleas to flee, bees to buzz off, and ants to march on, our pest control service will take care of them and guarantee you won’t see them again or we’ll come right back.
