Little pests can be a big problem in your home. Whether you’re dealing with spiders, ants, fleas or hornets, getting rid of them is a top priority. Patton Termite and Pest can help you get rid of all these pests.
Spiders are a big problem in Kansas. Some are just annoying, but some, like the brown recluse, are very dangerous. Brown recluses are commonly found in Kansas, and their bites can cause serious damage. If you have a spider problem, Patton Termite can help you figure out what kind of spider you have, and help you get rid of them.
Wasps and hornets can also be a big problem. These little creatures like to build their nests in a covered, safe environment- in attics or along the underside of a roof. Wasps and hornets are very dangerous- they are very protective of their home and one another, so if they feel threatened, a whole mob will come after you. Unlike bees, wasps and hornets can sting multiple times, and they also bite. You do not want these creatures in or around your house.
Fleas are a very common problem for many pet owners. Because of their size, it’s easy to miss fleas until they have multiplied into a huge problem. Fleas can carry many diseases; most just cause minor skin irritation, but in extreme cases fleas can spread stomach flu, tapeworms and even bubonic plague. Fleas have very tough outer bodies, so it’s almost impossible to squish them, and they are exceptionally fast, and can jump up to 200x their body length. If you have fleas in your home, you need to get them taken care of immediately.
Another little pest that can infest your home is an ant. Or a whole bunch of ants. Like many little pests, ants live in colonies. Scouts are sent out of the colony to find food and water. When resources are found, ants sent a scent trail back to their colony. A lot of time, the colony with start a new colony by the food source, which means if ants can get to food in your house, they’re going to be moving in. Patton Termite can come out and eliminate the scent trail and get rid of the ants.
