Bed Bug Infestation
Bed bugs are flat and small in size, allowing them to hide easily from view during the day when they are not active. They hide in mattresses, bed frames, bedding, furniture, carpets, baseboards and bedroom clutter. They are most commonly found in the seams of mattresses or inside box springs. However, it is not necessary to locate a specimen to identify an infestation. Their excrement leaves brown to black stains on mattresses and linens, and bloodstains may be visible where bed bugs have been accidentally crushed. Learn More
Termites are sometimes confused with ants, which often swarm at the same time of year. Termites can be differentiated by their straight antennae, uniform waist and wings of equal size. (Ants have elbowed antennae, constricted waists and forewings that are longer than the hind wings.) Learn More
Fleas are insects that form the order of Siphonaptera. They are wingless, with mouthparts adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood.
Ticks are hungry parasites that carry pathogens and diseases that are harmful to both humans and pets.
Chiggers are the tiny, immature stage of a large mite called a redbug. These colorless, parasitic larvae measure only 1/150 of an inch in diameter, but they pack a punch with their itchy bites throughout summer, not letting up until the fall.
Mosquitoes are part of the fly family and can be just as pesky. In Texas, where the old saying “if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it will change” is very true and provides an optimal environment for mosquitoes. One of the benefits of living in Texas is the warmer climate that allows for fantastic fun outdoors. Mosquitoes, however, can put a damper on these plans. Learn More
