Termite & Other Wood Invading Pest Protection

Did you know that termites can do more damage to homes and structures than all major storms, floods, and fires combined? However, you can protect your “Single Biggest Investment” with an inspection and treatment by a reputable company. One that is knowledgeable and up to date on the new technology that can reduce and control termite infestation both in and around your home. A company like Hoffman’s Exterminating.

Termite control has become a precise and technical business, and although there still are many companies out there willing to risk your home for their inexperience, we at Hoffman’s Exterminating treat your home as if it were our own. Since our business has always been built by “word of mouth” advertising, one unhappy customer will cost us not just your business, but all those that you would have referred us to.
Although termites are by far the most destructive pest in this area, there are many others that can cause both damage and a financial loss to your property. Here is a short list of some of those pests and their potential damage.

Although these bees do not eat wood, then bore a perfect hole in decks, sofits, door frames, window frames and even siding. If left untreated, these bees will cause damage, mostly cosmetic, over several years. One distinctive sign of these bees is a yellowish stain that resembles bird droppings on the siding or deck areas. Usually you will also see saw dust and the bees themselves hovering close to the holes.

These are the large black, brown, red and yellow ants that you find wondering around trees, lawns, sheds, firewood, garage, garbage cans, railroad ties, your kitchen, dishwasher, bathroom or any other areas that they can find water and/or food. These pests tend to nest in areas that are prone or already have a moisture problem. Like the carpenter bees, they do not consume wood, but rather hollow it out to create “galleries” so that they can control the moisture and humidity in this area to better suit their needs. These insects can do considerable damage, and if left alone will usually create a nuisance later in the evenings or early in the day. Seeing the ants themselves is usually the first sign that ants may be present in your home, but other signs such as saw dust, rotted wood and dead ants may also indicate an infestation.

All rodents gnaw constantly, otherwise their teeth will continue to grow and their ability to eat and defend themselves will be eliminated. Unfortunately, they gnaw on wires, cables, wood trim and other areas that can cause both damage and safety issues. Besides their gnawing, their nesting and defense habits usually cause erosion problems in and around your home.

There are a number of wood boring bees and beetles. Although these pest tend not to be as large of a problem in this area, their importance and potential for structural damage can be severe if left untreated or undiscovered by an inexperienced inspector or company.

These include pests such as Clothes Moths, Hide Beetles, Carpet Beetles, Food Pest, Silver Fish, and Crickets. This group of pests invades our food, clothes, books and other stored possessions to eat, nest and/or destroy. Although most of these pests can be easily controlled, their misidentification and/or lack of discovery are the leading cause for their damage. This is why an experienced inspector or company is needed to determine which pests are present to be treated.

General Pest Invaders

Hoffman’s exterminating is best at solving house hold pest problems. We eliminate infestations as well as reducing the pest pressures in and around your home. We have answers to eliminating the most common pests, such as:

Cockroaches – Fleas – Ticks – Silverfish – Cloths moths – Carpet beetles – Food infesting insects – Mice and Rats – Bee’s and Wasp Nests – Earwigs – Clover mites – Millipedes & Centipedes – Crickets – Squirrels – Ground Beetles – Box Elder Bugs – Pavement Ants

There are many different incidental occasional invaders, and their presence is often related to moisture. However, the recommended control measures for these pests are, for the most part, minimal. Topping the list in this category are Pill Bugs, Sow Bugs and Scuds (commonly called “Rolly Pollies”). These crustaceans all need moist environment to live. Therefore, they find living conditions under excessive mulch, near decaying vegetation, and in damp basements or crawlspaces. The key to controlling these pests is finding and removing moisture sources. Chemical measures aren’t usually needed because these pests won’t typically survive indoors anyway. You want to stop them before they get in.

Two other groups of incidental pests that tend to like thick mulched or organic moist are Springtails and Earwigs. Again, exclusion, habitat alteration, moisture reduction and mechanical removal of the pests are the keys to control. In a rare occasion, if it’s really bad, you could do some insecticidal treatments of mulch outside, as long as you can penetrate the mulch or roll it back.

Millipedes, and in particular garden millipedes, are another common invader. These pests can grow to large numbers in yards, and they gain access to a structure via cracks and crevices under doors and thresholds. Millipedes reach structures basically by accident, via their normal crawling behavior, although they will trail each other, because these pests do tend to have a bad odor, they should be swept or vacuumed up as soon as possible. It can be difficult to achieve chemical control of millipedes in outdoor areas, simply because many treatments don’t fully penetrate the mulch to reach them.

Some Spider Species are occasional invaders, such as the “ambush spiders” (wolf spiders), which simply wander in under doors. No chemical controls are needed for these types of pests. Many spiders, especially the ground dwelling ones, are only incidental pests.

Crickets can also be characterized as incidental, and possibly seasonal, invaders. There are two main types: field crickets and house cricket. The field cricket is a black, stout -bodied cricket that is not known to establish indoors. Exclusion is the best remedy. If you perform any treatment, it would be outside. Meanwhile the house cricket, which is brown, can occasionally establish indoors, in such places as crawlspaces, basements and damp garages. Being closely related to cockroaches, house crickets can be controlled with well-placed cockroach gel baits.

These include pests such as Clothes Moths, Hide Beetles, Carpet Beetles, Food Pest, Silver Fish, and Crickets. This group of pests invades our food, clothes, books and other stored possessions to eat, nest and/or destroy. Although most of these pests can be easily controlled, their misidentification and/or lack of discovery are the leading cause for their damage. This is why an experienced inspector or company is needed to determine which pests are present to be treated.
