These pests can do serious damage to your home or business. Termites of all kinds eat cellulose, a plant fiber used found in building materials. Infestations often go undetected until serious harm has occurred to a structure. However, termite colonies do leave some clues behind.
You may smell a mold- or mildew-like odor. Floors, ceilings and wood can appear bowed or swollen. Sometimes, mud tunnels formed from a mix of mud, feces and saliva are found near a home's foundation. Once you find these signs, it's time to call for professional help.
Ants can be hazardous to people and their homes. Fire ants produce a painful sting, usually in reaction to their nests being disturbed. While not usually dangerous, stings can cause extremely serious allergic reactions in some people and animals. These reddish-brown ants sometimes eat through wires and destroy machinery. Even insulation isn't safe from the fire ant.
Carpenter ants make their way into homes through gaps or cracks around windows and doors. They prefer to nest in moist or soft wood. Seeing the occasional ant isn't proof of an infestation since they sometimes roam far from home in search of food. However, seeing winged ants come from out of the woodwork or walls is a good indication of a colony's presence. Wood shavings and rustling sounds from behinds walls or woodwork are other signs of carpenter ant infestations.
Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs have become increasingly common in Corryton and all of Tennessee. The spread of infestations is hard to control because people unwittingly carry these bugs with them in their luggage, handbags, clothes and new or used furniture. Bloodsucking bedbugs often hide in groups inside mattresses for easy access to their prey. While not known to carry disease, their bites leave behind itchy welts on the skin.
Bed bugs can be hard to detect due to their tiny size and flat body shape. They can easily fit into the smallest crevices. While measures can be taken to reduce their numbers in linens, bedding and carpets, pest-control treatments are necessary to completely rid your home of a bedbug infestation.
