    Pest Control for Dallas

    Have you seen remnants of bugs or rodents in your Dallas home? Typically the places to look are along baseboards and window sills, in cabinets, and near doorways or openings in the wall. If you suspect you may have an infestation of one of these common household pests, call The Bug Dude for all of your pest control needs.

    Cockroaches, fleas, spiders, mice, and ants are just a few of the pests that can come make themselves “at home” in YOUR home! The first sign of one of these pests should alert you that there could be many more hiding in and around your home.

    Cockroaches can enter your home in many different ways, through cracks and crevices, vents, pipes, and more! They can flatten their bodies so much that it is hard to keep them out. They reproduce quickly and typically live behind your walls. Anywhere that is warm and damp is a perfect breeding ground for this pest.

    Fleas are tiny and feed on organic debris. A common sign you may have a flea problem and need some pest control is that animals continually scratch and groom themselves. Adult fleas will feed on the pet’s blood and it is annoying and uncomfortable for them.

    Spiders, although feared by many humans, control populations of many other insects. However, having spiders as guests in your home is usually not a welcomed thought. There are many, many different kinds of spiders and many are not poisonous. Different spiders like different climates: some like it dry and warm, others like it cool and damp. Look for them in dark, undisturbed areas.

    Mice can be a terrible nuisance. They enter seeking food, water, and warmth. They tend to be rapid breeders, some year-round. They can damage and contaminate food and also bring in other pests like fleas and ticks into your home. Look for small holes (even holes you think are too small) along the floor.

    Ants are probably the most common household bug for pest control. They seek sweet or greasy food substances most commonly found in the kitchen or pantry. They can nest almost anywhere, and can uproot and move when threatened. They leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source. That’s why you see them in a line.

    If you are having trouble with these or any other household pests, call The Bug Dude, your Dallas pest control company.
