Bugs found in the house can cause more than just a fright — they can cause severe damage that ruins the look and feel of your home. Bugs found in the bathroom when you turn on the lights may not be your biggest concern. But termites can hide in the walls of your home for years without being detected and can destroy your wood floors, walls and foundation. You can’t just sweep termites under the rug and hope they go away. Regular inspections from a pest control specialist, such as Terminix, can help detect any termite activity and help keep the integrity of your home intact without costing you thousands of dollars in repairs.




For many homeowners, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Unfortunately, pests like cockroaches and ants also prefer the kitchen because it gives them easy access to food. Having regular cleaning services can help keep them off your counters, but they’ll most likely hide in the spaces you can’t reach waiting to feast on food crumbs. Special products and tools from a pest control specialist are often needed to help get rid of aggressive pest infestations, since over-the-counter products tend to be an ineffective long-term solution. Terminix has trained technicians that know where pests like to hide and can treat your home both inside and out to help ensure your kitchen isn’t crawling w ith unwanted dinner guests.



Basements and Garages


You should be able to enter every room in your house without fear of walking into a spider web. Unfortunately, bugs in the garage can linger if your home isn’t treated by a pest control specialist. Earwigs, silverfish and spiders are all common pests found in the darker and less frequented spaces in your home. While you may not be spending all of your time in the basement or garage, you should be able to retrieve tools and storage boxes without encountering an unwanted bug. Terminix can inspect your home for free and help find what is attracting pests to these spaces and create a barrier against them.




When the weather is warm, the backyard can be the perfect place to soak in the sun and enjoy a barbecue. That is, unless mosquitoes are buzzing around. Mosquitoes can leave itchy bite marks on your skin and ruin your outdoor events. And in some cases, mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance — they can threaten your health. Before any backyard occasion, contact a pest control specialist to treat the yard so you can go back to enjoying your space without any unwanted visitors.
