Pest Control in Summerville SC

With more than 50,000 residents, Summerville is one of the most populated cities in the Charleston area. That’s a lot of homes where termites, rodents, mosquitoes, bed bugs, and other pests can find food and shelter. Termites can cause devastating and expensive structural damage to your home, and rodents, mosquitoes, and other pests can spread diseases.

We don’t just want to stop infestations; we want to prevent them from happening.

Termite Control Services in Summerville

Advanced Termite and Pest Control provides expert termite control services in Summerville. Despite their tiny size, termites can cause big – and expensive – problems for your home. Because they like to eat wood, termites can damage the very structure of your home, weakening floors, walls, and foundations. Unfortunately, termites can be nearly undetectable long before they cause noticeable damage. That’s why it’s best to get professional termite treatment from Advanced Termite and Pest Control. We know how to prevent infestations before they even start.

Termites can be found in every state except Alaska, and the Charleston, SC, metro area has the highest infestation of Formosan termites in the United States. Summerville residents should be diligent in preventing termites in their homes. You can do a few things to prevent termites yourself, including:

  1. Keep your home dry.
  2. Cover vents with a 30-mesh, non-corroding metal screen.
  3. Avoid wood-to-ground contact whenever possible.
  4. Keep wood piles away from your home.

Not only do we want to keep termites from entering your home, we also want to kill the queen, which will destroy the colony. The Sentricon Always Active Termite Baiting System used by Advanced Termite and Pest Control is the most effective product on the market for preventing and eliminating termites.

Pest control in Summerville is a full-time job. Summerville’s hot, humid climate is perfect for rodents, bed bugs, roaches, spiders, mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and more. Many of these pests not only damage your home, but they also spread diseases.

Pests come into your home for two main reasons: food and shelter. Remove their way in and their food sources and pests will stay away. Find and seal all cracks, holes and gaps in walls, around windows and doors, and in your foundation. Keep your home clean by sweeping and vacuuming often and cleaning up spills immediately. Do not leave leftover food or crumbs out. Wipe down surfaces often, especially in the kitchen. Be sure to fix leaks and other sources of moisture in your home.

Still, though, no matter how much you try, some pests get in. Contact Advanced Termite and Pest Control, your local pest control experts, today. We use the latest technology and techniques in pest control for residential to eliminate infestations and prevent pests from getting back into your home.

Mosquito Reduction Services in Summerville

We all know how much a mosquito bite itches. It’s not just annoying; it could make you sick. Mosquitoes carry several diseases, including malaria, West Nile, Zika, and several forms of encephalitis. The key to effective mosquito control in Summerville is to keep your yard and home as dry as possible. Mosquitoes reproduce and thrive in standing water. Even a soda bottle cap full of water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Make sure there is no standing water in your yard in buckets, planters, and other containers. Change water in bird baths often. Also, watch out for water puddling on top of tarps and car covers. Keep outdoor faucets turned off and fix leaks to avoid puddling. Be sure to look in your crawlspace or basement for leaks, too.

Advanced Termite and Pest Control provides professional mosquito control services in Summerville. We safely treat shrubbery and trees in your yard up to 10 feet off the ground and within 100 feet of your home. No amount of professional mosquito treatment will ever eliminate all mosquitoes, but it will significantly reduce their presence. We will even provide you with a handy checklist of ways to control mosquitoes.

Bed Bug Control Services in Summerville

Everyone has heard the rhyme that says “Sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.” This is good advice because bed bugs in Summerville can be a big problem. Although these annoying insects are not known to carry diseases, their bites can itch and lead to loss of sleep and skin infections. Although there are some steps you can take for bed bug control, the best thing you can do is call Advanced Termite and Pest Control.

Travel is the most common source of bed bug infestations. Bed bugs hitchhike on people, clothing, luggage, or other personal belongings and are transported to their homes (or public lodging).

You might have bed bugs if you have red itchy bites after being in bed. Spots of blood on your bedding – from the bites or from squashing a bed bug – are another sign you have them. Bed bugs are known for leaving rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses when they are crushed or when they defecate. Live bed bugs and their tiny eggs are easily visible, as well.

If you have bed bugs, move your bed away from walls or furniture. Carefully vacuum molding, windows, and floors, in addition to the sides and seams of mattresses, box springs, and furniture. Empty the vacuum or the bag immediately and dispose of it outside in a sealed container or bag. Wash your sheets, pillowcases, blankets, and bed skirts, and put them in a hot dryer for at least 30 minutes. Most importantly, contact Advanced Termite and Pest Control immediately for a thorough bed bugs inspection and bed bugs treatment.
