Welcome to my site about pest control. I'm Miranda Maloney. Although many people fuss loudly about the presence of spiders in the home, these creatures often clear out the bugs that cause far worse problems. Spiders consume beetles, cockroaches, moths and other pests that wreak havoc throughout the house. Thankfully, however, you can hire a pest control professional to eliminate bugs in your home if you do not want to co-habitate with spiders. In fact, pest control professionals can eliminate the spiders as well. I will share information about pest control tactics, both natural and commercial, on this site. Please follow along to learn more.

Noticing an increase in the number of cockroaches that are suddenly scattering around in your home? You may frequently spot these insects in your kitchen but are finding them in a few other places around the home now. Having roaches is a problem because these insects can quickly spread some harmful bacteria from one surface to the next. If they are getting into some of your food, they will leave that harmful bacteria on the stuff you and your loved ones are planning to eat, potentially causing some harm to each person who lives in the home with you.

Carpenter ants are a particular type of ant that, much like termites, will take up residence in wooden structures and create a wide and extensive network of tunnels that cause a great deal of structural damage.

Understanding some of the warning signs associated with a carpenter ant population within your home can help you identify an infestation early so that you can contact a pest control specialist before the damage becomes too extensive.

Ants are one of the smallest and most common household pests that can take up residence within your home, largely because their small size makes it easier for them to find entranceways inside. However, they are also extremely numerous, which means that an infestation can quickly turn from a few ants here and there to a whole colony of thousands marching through your home. Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do before ants manage to find their way inside to reduce the chance that an infestation will occur and proactively protect your home.
