Common Pest Control in Fort Worth

Fort Worth Pest Control

An exterminator, or pest control professional, is trained in all facets of pest elimination, and uses a variety of methods to prevent future infestations from occurring. Fort Worth is no different from any other part of the country, in that we all have common household pests. Whether its yellow jackets or mice, we are here to rescue you!

A variety of tools are used to protect homeowners from invaders, but it is very important that your pest control professional uses the right tool for the job. It’s silly to think about a mouse trap being set for a cockroach, isn’t it? The professionals are trained to know what is best for each situation they encounter.

Traps are one method of pest elimination and they offer kill and no-kill options. They are not designed for large infestations, but can be very effective. Some variations include spring-loaded traps (traditional), catch-and-release models, sticky traps and electronic traps. Spring-loaded, electronic and multi-catch traps are most commonly used for rodents and snakes, while sticky traps are effective against a wide range of insects. Visual traps that use light to attract pests are effective against many types of insects as well.

Baited traps involve placing poison bait in a “bait station” that lures the pest into the trap. The pest then eats the poison and leaves the area.

Fumigation requires the location to be sealed off while it is filled with poison gases or pesticides. It is an easy way to target a large area quickly and efficiently if the home can be completely sealed. This is especially convenient for small insects or large infestations.

Poison spray targets a specific area and is most commonly used to exterminate insects.

If you are interested in other green or humane pest control options, there are also no-kill traps, diatomaceous earth, biological control agents like nematodes and mites, or just plain preventative measures.
