Infestations

When bugs problems go from a occasional sightings to infestations, something needs to be done. And fast. Infestations are an unhealthy situation and can cause all types of sickness including asthma problems. LoveBug Pest Control has solutions for infestations.

German Roach Infestations

German roach infestations are a health hazard. Note the roach feces along with a number of German roaches.

German Roaches are a problem that should not be ignored. Unlike their cousins the American roaches, German roaches make their home inside your home. So if you see one or just a few, you can count on the fact that their are many more. In the kitchen, they are living in the cracks of your cabinets, in plumbing penetrations, and about anywhere else that they can make a nest. Although having a German roach infestation may seem like a nightmare, it is very possible to get the infestation under control with professional pest control provider.

LoveBug Pest Control has the experience and products to get rid of German roaches. Our service almost always involves two trips to treat for German roaches infestations. In our industry, these treatments are sometimes called “flush outs” or “clean outs”. Two trips are important because our products will not affect the egg containers that will eventually hatch after our first treatment. LoveBug Pest Control will treat the first time and then return in approximately two weeks.

GERMAN ROACH INFESTATIONS – LOVEBUG ACTION PLAN:

1)  Identify all areas that German roaches are nesting.
2)  Have customer clean out areas so flushing of roaches can occur.
3)  Treat for German roaches using specialized pesticide products made for German infestations.
4)  Come back in two weeks for a second treatment.

Ant Infestations

Ants infestations can also get out of hand quickly and should be treated by a professional.

Although not as eye popping as roach problems, ants can go from occasional sightings to infestations.  They get in your food and on your counters, and after a while ants become a nightmare situation. Ants are also carriers of diseases too.

Unlike German roaches, which is the usual culprit of roach infestations, there are many different type of ants that can invade your wall cavities and the inside of your home. The most difficult of the inside ants is the pharaoh ants, but thief ants, odorous ants, acrobat ants, carpenter ants (covered in our carpenter ant section), and acrobat ants can also invade your home.  Knowing which ant is invading your home is essential in treatment because each type of ant has different characteristics and habits.

Ants enjoy many of the same foods as humans do, so it is not uncommon for ants to be a year-round problem. Especially in Texas where the weather is mild most times of the year.  It is important to keep an environment that is not as attractive to ants. 

ANT INFESTATIONS – THING TO DO TO PREVENT:

1)  Keep counter tops clean and never leave food out.
2)  Never leave dirty dishes in the sink.
3)  Ants need moisture to survive. Repair leaks inside and outside of your home.
4)  Keep trees trimmed. Ants will trail along trees that are touching the roof to gain access to inside.
5)  Keep outside of the house clean – don’t allow brush and mulch to accumulate along side of home.
