Bed Bugs Control – Canton Termite & Pest Control

Bedbugs
Bed bugs are a pest viewed by most homeowners with a degree of loathing. This distaste is warranted as bed bugs have the capacity to be a frustrating and expensive problem for homeowners. A great amount of misinformation exists surrounding bed bugs, and it is important that homeowners have a firm understanding of what bed bugs are and how they can be a pest. This knowledge can help you to better identify bed bugs and mitigate the threat that they pose to your home.

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are an insect taxonomically sorted into the Cimicidae family. Cimicidae contains a variety of parasitic pests, most of which have a specific animal that they feed on, such as the bat bug. The name bed bug, which is given due to the pest’s tendency to hide on mattresses, is usually referring to the Cimex lectularius, which is considered the common bed bug.

Bed bugs are infamous for feeding on human blood, and in fact the common bed bug has been shown to prefer human blood sources over other warm blooded mammals. Bed bugs are some of the most tenacious parasites in the pest world, able to survive in a variety of climates and go without food for up to a year.

Fortunately, while they do take blood from hosts, they are not a known vector of disease or illness. This means that, unlike other blood sucking pests such as mosquitoes, they do not pose a threat to homeowners as a spreader of disease. Despite this, bed bugs still leave behind bite marks on the bodies of their victims, which can be itchy and inflamed.

How do you identify bed bugs?

Due to their reclusive nature, it can often be difficult to identify bed bugs in your home. Because they are nocturnal, they often only emerge from their hiding places at night to feed. For this reason, the most obvious sign of bed bug activity are bite marks left by their feeding. While it is preferable to identify bed bugs before they begin to feed, the bites are the most common sign homeowners find.

If you believe that bed bugs are active in your home, the best way to confirm this is to search in areas where bed bugs tend to hide. Common areas where you might find bed bugs include:

• Cracks and crevices
• Mattresses
• Sheets and other linens
• Furniture and luggage
• Inside boxes or bags
• Crawling on baseboards

If bed bugs are active in these areas, you will often find black or brown stains left behind on any porous surfaces, and it is sometimes possible to spot immature bed bugs in these areas. Bed bugs are flat, round shaped insects that are typically reddish-brown in coloration. The adults are usually around 4-5mm in length. Even spotting one or two insects matching this description should be cause for concern, as a much larger population could be hidden elsewhere.

It is important to remember that bed bugs are excellent at hiding, and it can require a very detailed search of the home to locate them in some cases. Homeowners should be careful to keep their home free of unnecessary clutter, as this can provide bed bugs with easy hiding places.

Keeping your home safe:

Bed bugs are extremely difficult to remove from a home. Their rapid reproductive rate and ability to remain hidden for long periods means that they can sometimes outlast any treatment products that you might use in your home. To make matters more complicated, if the infestation is not completely eliminated, even one single female bed bug can rebuild the entire infestation anew.

Due to this, it is very important that homeowners call in a professional pest service to deal with bed bugs as soon as they are spotted. The sooner treatment begins, the easier it is to completely remove the problem from your home.

At Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating for pests. Our technicians begin any treatment with a thorough inspection of the property, identifying any signs of pest activity or conditions conducive to infestation. After this, we will formulate a safe, targeted treatment plan to deal with your pest problems once and for all!

Ants- Canton Termite & Pest control

Ants

 

Customers occasionally call us and report finding swarms of small ants in and around their kitchens as well as on the outside of the home. Sometimes, the ants in question are of a species known as the white footed ant.

 Do it your selfWhite footed ants are extremely small, growing to only 2.7mm (About 1/10 inch) in length. They are usually black or brown in color, and can be most easily recognized by their white or yellow colored feet.

The white footed ant is most often found in Florida, where they are a common problem for homeowners during the spring and summer seasons. However, while they not as prevalent outside of Florida, the white footed ant can be found throughout the Southeast, including here in Georgia.

White footed ants are often spread unintentionally by humans when they hitch a ride on plants or on landscaping materials such as mulch. These materials will be taken to a new location, such as a home, and the ants will spread around the area in search of food to scavenge. Because of their small size, the ants are sometimes able to access areas that would be sealed from other pests.

One scenario that can be particularly problematic is when a homeowner brings a plant that is carrying the ants inside the home. This can allow them to establish a nest indoors, which can be an unexpected and unwanted surprise for homeowners.

The white footed ant has a fairly diverse diet, feeding on sweets, proteins, and dead insects. They are very fond of food scraps left by humans, and for this reason will often be found around kitchens or outdoor eating areas. Once an ant has found a food supply, they will communicate with the rest of the colony, and swarms of ants will move into areas where food is available.

Fortunately, white footed ants do not sting or bite, and their workers do not cause any structural damage to your home. However, the ants are often a nuisance to homeowners due to their scavenging. With each nest of ants containing millions of members, they can be problematic due to their sheer numbers.

The best way to protect your home from the nuisance of white footed ants is to prevent them from accessing the home in the first place. Carefully inspect any plants, pine straw, or mulch for ants, and be especially careful with any house plants.

If you are spotting these ants in your home, it is likely that they have a nest somewhere nearby. The best way to find these nests is to simply follow the trail of ants back from a food source to their nest. This can allow you to find the source of the ants and remove it from your home. If the ants are already well established in your home, it is often best to call in a professional pest service to inspect and treat your home.

At Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating for pests of all kinds, including wildlife. Our technicians begin any treatment with a thorough inspect of the property, and use this to identify any signs of pest activity and any conditions that might be conducive to future infestations. Rather than using basic, generalize treatment options, we formulate safe, targeted treatment plans to deal with your pest problems in the most efficient way!

Smokey Brown Cockroaches

Smokey Brown Cockroaches

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we receive many calls regarding smokybrown cockroaches.

No one likes roaches, and many people find them to be terrifying. They are often associated with a lack of sanitation. Unfortunately, even well-kept homes can sometimes have roach infestations. In the Southeast, the most common cockroach is the smokybrown.

Smokeybrown cockroaches are a fairly common pest. They are the largest local species of cockroach and can be identified by their brown/black body pattern. The smokeybrown is what most people associate with the word…cockroach, due to their shiny brown bodies. In outdoor environments, they are often found in warm, moist areas. This is because the smokeybrown is easily dehydrated and therefore must live near a water source.

 

The smokeybrown can often be found in gardens and forested areas around homes. Common areas include wood piles, mulch, and other outdoor debris. They are primarily nocturnal and will go out at night seeking food and water. The cockroaches can consume a wide variety of substances and are opportunistic eaters. This means that they will consume any food source available. Common food sources include:

 

  • Human food scraps
  • Plant Matter
  • Fecal Matter
  • Dead insects

 

The smokeybrown has a life span that widely varies, from around 200-700 days. The female will reproduce by creating approximately 10 egg sacs, also known as ootheca. Each of these egg sacs will contain an average of 20 eggs. The female will often attach these egg sacs to a safe surface where they will remain until the young hatch.

 

Smokeybrown cockroaches living outdoors do not pose a significant threat to homeowners. However, the roaches can sometimes be attracted to the lights in a home, and will make their way inside a building. They can enter through doors, windows, ventilation shafts, and any other opening in a home.

 

Once inside, they can often find a dark, warm place, such as an attic, to hide and reproduce. Due to the amount of time in the life cycle of the roaches, they will often stay hidden for up to a year before you begin to see them in your home. They will hide in a dark space and grow into adults before venturing out into the home.

 

Due to the requirement for moisture, the smokeybrown will often have difficulties surviving in any areas with a lot of air movement, such as ventilation shafts. However, if they find a moist area of the home, with limited ventilation, they can quickly become a frustrating pest to remove.

 

As they are the largest roach species in the area, it can be somewhat disconcerting to find them around your home. They will often leave their indoor hiding place at night and can be found around the home or outside seeking food. When looking for signs of roaches, homeowners should look for a blackish, tar-like residue. This residue is excreted by the roaches and is the best sign of an infestation.
To deal with an infestation, it is best to seek professional help. Some DIY products can eliminate some of the indoor roaches, but often roaches are continuing to enter the home from the outside. Non-professional grade products simply do not have the strength to keep the roaches out longterm. A professional technician is able to apply sufficient and longer-lasting chemicals to eliminate the infestation and keep the roaches out.

 

Exclusion and home repairs are other important steps to eliminate the infestation. The cockroaches will often have a particular area that they are entering through. So it is important to seal any potential entrances into the home. Important exclusion steps include:

 

  • Maintain ventilation in attics and crawl spaces
  • Discard old boxes and debris
  • Repair any leaking drains, faucets, and other sources of moisture
  • Remove any rotting leaf piles near to gutters and windows
  • Seal any exterior cracks or holes
  • Repair any caulking damage
  • Place mesh screens on vents and drains

 

These steps, combined with any other necessary repairs and chemical treatment, will help to quickly eliminate the cockroach infestation. As a homeowner myself, I can completely understand how unpleasant the idea of cockroaches in your home can be. For that reason, I am pleased to be able to provide you with the most efficient, affordable, and effective treatment options available. My team at Canton Termite and Pest Control has over 20 years of experience in the field! We are industry leaders in all forms of pest and wildlife control, including roaches.

 

My technicians will eliminate your roach problem as quickly and safely as possible for an affordable price that fits your budget!

Ask for me, Tim McWhirter, I would be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you have.

Indian meal moths – Canton Termite & Pest Control

Indian meal moths

At Canton Termite and Pest Control, we will occasionally receive calls from customers who report spotting small moths flying around their home. While they are often mistaken for clothes moths, these moths can sometimes be the destructive Indianmeal moth. While the adult moths pose little or no threat, the larvae of this species can consume and contaminate a variety of food sources in your home.

 

Indianmeal moths are fairly small, with a wingspan of around 16mm. Their wings are grey in color, but are characterized by a brownish-orange pattern on the back half of the wings. The larvae of the species resemble small worms and are cream colored.

Indianmeal moths often enter homes as larvae. They infest dry food sources such as pet food, cornmeal, bread, rice, and flour. In most cases, the larvae will infest a food source at a food distributor or grocery store, and then will be brought into the home by the homeowner. Once inside, they will spread and infest other food sources around the home.

The adult moths can often be found around the home around nighttime. The adults are nocturnal, and like many moths they are photosensitive. This can lead them to spread far from the original infestation while following light sources in the home, which can make it hard to identify the cause of the infestation.

When the larvae feed, they leave behind silk webbing as well as fecal matter. This leads to the entire food source being contaminated. Due to their diverse diet, the larvae can quickly ruin a variety of foods in your pantry or storage cabinets.

If you are dealing with an Indianmeal moth infestation inside your home, the most important step to eliminating the problem is identifying the source of the infestation. Typically this will be a particular food source around the home that the larvae are feeding on and living around. Finding and removing any contaminated food sources helps to eliminate the population from your home.

It can also be helpful to identify and seal any cracks or gaps in your cabinets, pantries, or food storage areas that could have allowed the moths to spread around the home. Since pet foods are the most commonly infested food source, it is important make sure that they are sealed and kept moth free.

If you are still dealing with moths after taking these steps, it is often best to call in a professional service to inspect your home. At Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating for pests of all kinds. Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your home, identifying any signs of pest activity and conditions conducive to infestation, and then use this information to formulate a safe, targeted plan to deal with your pest problems!

Sugar Ant Control – Canton Termite & Pest Control – Georgia

Sugar Ant Control

Do it your self

During the spring and summer months, homeowners often call us to deal with infestations of ants that they find foraging for food in and around their homes. One species of ant that is often the culprit in these cases is the sugar ant.

 

While the term “sugar ant” is often applied to any ants that seek out sweet foods, they are actually a unique species known as the banded sugar ant.  Sugar ants vary in size depending on food availability, but can grow to around 15mm in size. The female ants are orange in coloration, and have a unique dark band on the rear of their bodies. The males, on the other hand, are completely black in coloration.

 

Sugar ants are right at home in suburban areas due to the abundance of food, but naturally occur in woodlands and forests. They typically prefer warm, humid climates, and this makes Georgia an ideal region for sugar ant activity. Like most ants, they are social insects, and build large nests inside of dirt mounds.

 

As their name suggests, sugar ants prefer sweet, sugary foods. However, they have a diverse diet, and can consume nectar, insects, and will sometimes farm honeydew from aphids. Sugar ants become a problem for homeowners when they enter into homes or outdoor eating areas foraging for food. They are attracted to any food scraps or stains, and will communicate with one another to allow hundreds of ants to descend on a food source at once.

 

While they do not sting, sugar ants can be a frustrating problem for homeowners due to their voracious attraction to any unsealed food sources. For this reason, it is very important to keep food sealed and to clean up any food spills, especially at outdoor events. If sugar ants have already established themselves near to your home, it is often best to call in a professional pest service to treat your property.

 

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating for pests of all kinds. Our highly trained technicians will inspect your entire property, identify any signs of pest activity, and provide you with the best treatment options to resolve your pest problems once and for all!

 

So if sugar ants are ruining your spring activities, call us today at 770-479-1598!

Carpenter Bees or Wood boring Bees

Carpenter bee or wood boring bees

 

During this time of the year, we receive calls from homeowners who report finding small holes and sawdust on the wooden structure of their home, in furniture, or in fences. Typically, these signs are evidence of carpenter bee activity.

Female Carpenter Bee – She has a all black head.

Carpenter bees are a wood destroying organism(WDO), which is a group of insects that includes many destructive pests such as termites, carpenter ants, and wood destroying fungus. Unlike termites, carpenter bees do not consume wood for sustenance, but instead excavate wooden structures to create nests.

 

Carpenter bees greatly vary in size, growing between 8mm-25mm in length. They are yellow and black in color, and are sometimes mistaken for bumblebees. They can, however, be distinguished with closer observation because they lack the visible body hairs on their abdomen that are characteristic of bumblebees.

 

Unlike many other species of bees, carpenter bees are not social insects. They live solitary lives, typically only interacting with other bees to mate. Females will typically mate during the late spring or early summer.

 

After mating, female carpenter bees excavate wooden structures, both naturally occurring and artificial, to construct nests known as galleries. In the wild, these are often located inside stumps and rotting trees. Around the home, carpenter bees prefer to excavate dry, unpainted, and damaged wood. Common nesting areas include:

 

  • Doors
  • Windowsills
  • Railing
  • Roof eaves
  • Fences
  • Wooden Furniture
  • Skylights

 

Carpenter bees do not always create new galleries, sometimes preferring to move into ones that were created in the previous season. However, they do tend to further excavate these galleries, increasing the damage to the structure. After they have constructed their nests, the carpenter bees will lay eggs, seal the gallery, and die shortly after. These eggs hatch, and the new bees take around 7 weeks to fully develop into adults. In warmer climates, it is common for carpenter bees to go through several life cycles before winter comes.

 

To keep your home safe from carpenter bees, it is important to remove conditions that are conducive for their excavation. Carpenter bees prefer to excavate unpainted and old wood, so keeping your home in good repair and repainting frequently can help to limit issues with carpenter bees.

 

As we mentioned above, carpenter bees do not consume wood. Their diet consists of plant pollen and nectar. This does not mean, however, that they do not pose a risk to your home. The excavation created by carpenter bees can be expensive and frustrating to repair, and any sign of carpenter bee activity should be treated as an immediate concern.

 

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating pests of all kinds. Rather than applying basic, non-specific treatment methods, our technicians will thoroughly inspect your home and formulate a specific treatment plan to target your pest problems!

Termite Control- in Canton Georgia

Termite inspection and Control

Most homeowners are aware of the destructive nature of termites. If your home has an active termite infestation, it is extremely important that whatever treatment method you employ to deal with it is the most effective method for your specific situation. Some pest professionals hold the position that certain treatment methods are the best for termites in all cases. However, the truth is that, depending on the situation, certain specific methods or a combination of more than one are the best approach for eliminating termites and keeping them out of your home permanently. There are three major approaches to termite treatment. These three methods are liquid treatment, bait treatment, and borate treatment.

Liquid Treatment:

Liquid treatment is the oldest and most used treatment method in the pest industry. It can be used both as a preventative measure as well as a treatment option for active infestation. The goal of liquid application is to establish a barrier around the perimeter of a home using a liquid treatment product that is sprayed into the soil.

Most liquid treatment products used to contain a repellant compound, and termites would naturally avoid it. However, this had a shortcoming if the treatment barrier had any gaps, as termites could locate these gaps and exploit them to gain access to the home. For this reason, many new liquid products are non-repellant, and termites will unknowingly be exposed to them while moving through the soil. The treatment covers termites that move through it, and can be passed on to other termites when they return to the nest. After a period of time, the termites will succumb to the product and die, along with any other termites in the colony that the treatment was spread to.

At one time, liquid treatment was by far the most popular method of treatment, and it still remains the favored treatment method of some older pest control companies. Liquid treatment is especially useful around homes with clearly defined perimeters. However, it is less effective for treating homes with areas that the technician cannot directly access.

Bait System Treatment:

Bait treatment systems are a newer treatment option that has gained popularity in recent years. Bait systems are essentially a series of termite “feeding boxes” placed around the perimeter of the home. Initially, these boxes are filled with some sort of cellulosic(wood based) material such as paper or cardboard that acts as a tempting food source for any nearby termites. If an inspection of the bait system reveals signs of feeding, the nutrient source will then be replaced by a bait product that contains a slow acting product that is fatal to any termites that consume it.

Once the new bait is in place, termite workers will return and feed on the bait. They will carry the chemical compound with them and spread it to other termites in the nest, and shortly after any exposed termites will succumb to the product and die.

Bait systems are generally slightly more expensive than liquid treatment. However, this expense is often worthwhile for homes that are difficult to treat with liquid products. Bait systems also serve as an early warning sign of any termite activity, which can be critical in preventing future termite infestations.

 

Borate Treatment

Borate treatment products are a very recent innovation in termite control. The treatment process involves spraying a compound made of a combination of glycol and borate onto any wooden framing used in the home. The glycol will evaporate and allow the borate to penetrate the wood to the center. Once this is complete, the wood completely repels termites and any other wood destroying organisms.

Because this process requires access to the framework of the home, it is generally only possible to apply this treatment during the initial construction of the house or during renovations. However, it has been steadily gaining popularity among builders due to its long lasting protection. It is important to point out, however, that borate treatment cannot be applied to other cellulosic materials such as wallpaper or wooden furniture, and therefore those materials are still at risk from termites.

What treatment is best for my home?

It can be difficult for homeowners to determine exactly which treatment option is best for their specific situation. Oftentimes, the best solution to termites is some combination of different treatment options. If you are dealing with an active termite infestation, or wanting to ensure that your home stays termite free into the future, it is critical to call in a professional pest service that you can trust to give you the best guidance for how to treat your home.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating for termites. Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your home, identify any signs of pest activity, and provide you with the best possible treatment plan for your specific situation, all at a price that fits your budget!

The termite colony is a complex organism. Each colony contains millions of termites, and the termites are divided into different “castes” based on their role in the colony. There are a 3 major termite castes in the colony, and those are the workers, the swarmers, and the soldiers. By understanding the inner workings of a termite colony, both homeowners and pest professionals can be better equipped to recognize signs of termite activity and eliminate the threat before severe damage is done to your home.

Termite Workers:

Termite workers are the most numerous caste in the colony. They gather food for the colony, protect developing termites, and repair damage to the nest. Termite workers are responsible for the structural damage to your home that termites are notorious for. They consume any type of cellulosic material, which includes any wood, wallpaper, or framing around the home. The workers are relatively small, and are light in color.

Termite workers are rarely spotted out in the open. Most of their work takes place beneath the surface of the soil, where they are either moving inside of the colony or consuming parts of the house from below.

Termite Soldiers:

Termite soldiers are the defenders of the colony. They protect the workers and the queen, and they also assist in preforming any necessary repairs to the structure of the colony. Termite soldiers are physically larger than workers, and have large mandibles that they use to attack any threats to the colony. They are often seen outside of broken walls and tunnels, defending the gap in the nest while repairs are being completed.

Termite soldiers do not feed on cellulosic material. However, they defend the workers from threats, and therefore the presence of termite soldiers in or around your home is a sign that workers are also nearby.

Termite Swarmers:

Termite Swarmers, or alates as they are sometimes called, are the reproductive members of the termite colony. They are best identified by their two sets of wings, and can often be sign flying around your property in large swarmers. During the early spring, termite swarmers emerge from their colonies to meet up with swarmers from other nearby colonies. They will gather by the thousands and then mate. After mating, the termite swarmers will form new colonies nearby, increasing the termite threat to your home.

Termite swarmers are a clear sign of current and future termite activity around your property, and therefore should be treated as a threat when spotted. Like soldiers, the swarmers do not consume cellulosic material, but their potential to form new colonies makes them a big problem for homeowners.

What if you spot termites in your home?

The presence of termites from any caste on your property is a sign of an active termite colony. Termites are capable of causing major damage to your home in a relatively short period of time, and therefore are a problem that should be dealt with sooner rather than later. If you have spotted any signs of potential termite activity, it is a good idea to have a professional pest service thoroughly inspect your property as soon as possible.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience treating for termites. Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your home, identify any signs of infestation or any conditions conducive for future pest activity, and provide you with the best treatment options for your specific pest problem!

Termite Swarm – Canton Georgia

Termite Swarmers

As the spring season draws closer, it brings with it many pleasant changes such as warm weather, new life, and sunny days. However, the warmth of springtime also brings pests of all kinds as well. One destructive pest that is especially active during this season is the termite. If you are out during this time of the year, you might notice large swarms of flying termites in and around your home. These winged termites, also known as swarmers, are a warning sign of current and future termite activity around your home.

 

Termite swarmers, or alates as they are sometimes called, are the future kings and queens of termite colonies. They are relatively small, have two sets of wings, and usually have a beige or white coloration.

During the spring, termite swarmers emerge from their colonies and congregate with swarmers from other nearby colonies. These groups are often extremely numerous, and it is this act that gives the alates the name “swarmers.” These swarms occur at different parts of the day depending on the species. Some species, such as subterranean termites, gather during the day; while others, such as Formosan termites, gather at night. The swarming seasons of all nearby nests are usually synchronized, and this allows large numbers of candidates for new colonies to be gathered at once during this season.

Once they have collected together, the swarmers will mate, and afterwards descend, lose their wings, and become the king or queen of a new termite colony. These new colonies can pose a threat to your home if they are established in close enough proximity to the structure.

Termite swarmers do not eat cellulosic material, and therefore they pose no direct threat to your home. However, swarmers are both a sign of current termite activity on your property as well as a potential future threat should they establish a new colony nearby. For this reason, if you identify termite swarmers on your home, it is important to have an inspection of the property by a professional pest service as soon as possible. A trained technician can identify any active termite infestations and provide any necessary preventative treatment to deal with future colonies.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have years of experience dealing with termites. Our highly trained technicians can inspect your property, identify any signs of potential termite activity, and provide you with the best treatment solutions to eliminate termites and keep them away from your home permanently!

So if you are seeing termite swarmers around you property, or simply have a question, call us today at 770-479-1598! We will be happy to help you in any way that we can!

Brown Widow Spider- Canton Termite & Pest Control

Brown Widow

There are a variety of species of spiders that can plague homes here in Georgia. Most people are aware of some of the more infamous species that are native to the United States such as the black widow and brown recluse. However, one lesser known species that can cause problems for homeowners is the brown widow.

Sometimes known as the house button spider, the brown widow is a “cousin” to the black widow. It is a fairly small spider, and has a tan-brown body coloration and can be identified by an orange “hourglass” mark on the bottom of the abdomen, similar of those of other widow spiders. The brown widow can also be distinguished by a unique black and white pattern on the upper abdomen.

 

Brown widows prefer warm and humid environments, which makes the southeastern United States an ideal climate for the spider. The brown widow spider has no defined active seasons, and can be found in and around the homes at any time during the year.

When they enter into your home, brown widows will often establish themselves in dark, secluded spaces. Areas like the insides of closets, beneath eaves and rafters, and underneath debris are all common places for brown widows. Once they have found an ideal hiding area, female brown widows will lay egg sacs. These eggs sacs are large with creamy white coloration. They can be most easily identified by the sharp protrusions covering the surface of the sac. The egg sacs can hold over 100 eggs, and after a short time period the new spiderlings will hatch and spread out around the nearby area. This can create problems when the spiders have established themselves indoors because the young spiders can move further into the home seeking prey and shelter.

While brown widows can be dangerous, they are sometimes beneficial due to their role in reducing the populations of other pest insects such as wasps. For this reason, if a brown widow is not in an area where it could pose a threat, it is better that they be left undisturbed.

If you have identified a brown widow infestation, it is important to be extremely cautious when approaching the spiders. While brown widows are not as aggressive as the black widow, they will still bite anything that threatens them or disturbs their eggs.

The bite of the brown widow contains venom of the same toxicity level as black widow venom. However, the brown widow delivers a much smaller dosage of venom per bite, and therefore is less dangerous. Despite the lower quantity of venom, the bite from the brown widow still shows similar symptoms to the black widow bite such as nausea, muscle spasms, and substantial pain around the bite area.

The best way to remain safe from brown widow bites is to maintain proper precaution while in areas where they commonly nest. Avoid reaching into areas with no visibility, and use gloves to protect hands and wrists from bites. Due to the danger posed by brown widow bites, it can often be best to call in a professional service to deal with an infestation inside of your home.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience dealing with pests and wildlife of all kinds. Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your home, identify the source of any issues as well as any conditions that could be conducive for future infestation, and finally offer you the best treatment options to resolve your pest problems once and for all!

There are several types of pests that are particularly good at remaining undetected while active inside your home. Of those pests, one of the most common is the silverfish.

Silverfish are small insects. They are grayish-blue in coloration, and are approximately 3/4 inch in length. They are often described as “teardrop shaped” and have three long bristles extending from the rear of their body. As they develop, silverfish undergo the process of gradual metamorphosis, and for this reason they are indistinguishable in appearance from when they hatch to adulthood.

 

Silverfish can survive in almost any environmental conditions, however they typically prefer dark areas with high humidity. Areas that fit this description are plentiful around the home, and many times silverfish can be found in secluded areas such as basements, vents, storage areas, and bathrooms. Silverfish are nocturnal, and will spend the daylight hours in hiding. Their nocturnal habits as well as their choice of generally secluded spaces can make it very difficult for homeowners to locate the source of a silverfish infestation.

Silverfish can reproduce relatively quickly. Though rates of reproduction vary by species, in some cases each individual female can lay clusters of eggs daily. In areas of high humidity, silverfish reproduce more quickly, and can become a major problem in your home in a short period of time.

The diet of the silverfish consists almost entirely of carbohydrates. They feed on almost any kind of starch or sugar, and can consume cellulose products, shampoos, glue, paper, and dead insects. Silverfish are notorious for getting inside food storage containers. Once they are inside, they will contaminate the food and this can cause a great deal of food waste if left unchecked.

While they do not cause any structural damage to homes, silverfish can ruin any papers, clothing, and food they are able to access. This can be a major frustration for homeowners because it is often difficult to identify what pest is causing the damage and where the source of the infestation is located within the home.

Like many pests, the best way for homeowners to deal with silverfish is to prevent an infestation in the first place. Removing conditions that are conducive for infestation, such as high humidity in vents and crawlspaces, can help to keep silverfish out of secluded areas in and around your home.

If an infestation is already active inside your home, it can be difficult to deal with without professional assistance. Many DIY pest products only work to eliminate silverfish while they are moving at night, and therefore do nothing to deal with the source of the infestation. If you are dealing with a severe infestation of silverfish, it is almost always easier to rely on a professional pest service to eliminate the problem.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, our team has decades of experience dealing with pests of all kinds. Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your home, locate the source of the problem, and provide you with the best solutions to deal with your particular situation!

Termite Bait System-Canton Termite & Pest Control-Cherokee County Georgia

Termite Bait System

Bait stations are essentially food stations for attracting termites. They are typically filled initially with some sort of wood product to attract termites. Once it has been confirmed that termites are active in the area, the bait is switched with a new supply coated in a slow acting poison. The termites will ingest this poison and carry it back to the nest with them.

Once termites begin to feed at the bait station systems, they will quickly spread the poison to a large majority of the nest, and this will help to decimate the population of the nest after some time has passed.

Bait stations are especially useful for homes that would require intrusive drilling for a similar liquid coverage. Bait stations can be inserted around the exterior of the home, and will attract termites to them and away from areas that would give them access to vulnerable parts of the structure. Homes with slab foundations or finished basements are well served by bait station systems, as this prevents the necessity of deep drilling to protect all parts of the structure with a liquid barrier.

Bait stations require periodic inspections by a trained technician to ensure that they are functioning correctly. While this does often come at additional cost, it allows the stations to act as a early warning system for termites. This means that the technician inspecting the stations will often find dead termites inside of the station, and will be able to identify a termite problem long before damage is being done to the home.

Termite Treatment- Wood treatment Canton Termite & Pest Control

Borate Termite Treatment

For many years, treating a home for termites was a process that required dumping hundreds of gallons of chemical pesticides in the soil around homes. While this type of treatment is still used in some cases, there have been many innovations in termite control as the years have gone by. One recent innovation has been the development of a chemical product used to treat homes during initial building or remodeling. This chemical product is made of a combination of Borate, which is a derivative of boric acid, and glycol.

 

When new homes are being construction or when an area of the home is being renovated. A homeowner can have a borate treatment applied to any wood in the structure of the home. This treatment is sprayed onto the wood itself on all sides. Over time, the glycol will allow the borate to be absorbed into the wood fibers.

Once the wood is sprayed and the borate is absorbed, the wood is poisonous to termites, and is protected permanently from them. Not only does this protect the wood from termites, it also slows wood decay and prevents the spread of wood destroying fungus. Other pests, such as ants and silverfish, are also averse to borate solutions, and the treatment can help to reduce the possibility of infestation by those pests.

Because borate treatment is applied to the wood itself rather than the soil, it is considered to be a more environmentally friendly treatment method. It is also permanent, and therefore does not need to be refreshed after a period of time like liquid treatment or bait systems do.

The primary disadvantage to borate treatment is that it requires access to the inner framework of the home. This means that it can often only be applied by builders during the initial construction. However, if you are remodeling a section of your home or finishing your basement, it is possible to have a borate treatment applied during this time with relative ease. It is also important to note that, while borate treatment protects the wood in the home, it does not protect other wood based products that termites can consume such as wallpaper. Despite these disadvantages, borate treatment is one of the most powerful tools for protecting your home from termites and other wood destroying pests in the market.

If you are a builder who wants to protect new construction projects from pests, or if you are a homeowner who is renovating, borate treatment can be an extremely powerful and cost effective method for dealing with termites and other pests. Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, our team of experts are equipped to apply borate based treatment to any home or structure. Our technicians can inspect your home and apply treatment where necessary to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment. We are proud to offer the most effective, efficient, and safe pest solutions in the industry!

Subterranean Termites in Cherokee County Georgia.

Subterranean termites are a species of termite that is the most widely seen in all of America. Higher concentrations of the subterranean termite population will be found in the southeast region, which of course includes Georgia.

Subterranean termites will definitely be most active in warm weather, swarming in the spring or at any point in time where rain warms the soil and moistens it dramatically. They will continue to reproduce as long as they are not hibernating, which, if they are protected from extreme cold and other elements, may never occur. Termites devour anything containing cellulose, which ranges from wood to art canvases. The subterranean termite species causes BILLIONS of dollars in damage per year, and will affect more houses and other buildings in high-activity areas.

Termite treatment- Liquid Treatment – Cherokee county Georgia

Termite inspections and Treatment

Termite swarming season is almost upon us. If you are a homeowner, you are probably already aware of how much damage termites can cause, even if you have never dealt with termites personally. Oftentimes, when we receive calls about termites, one of the main questions homeowners have is which method of treatment works best for termite infestations.

 

There is no universal answer to this, and the truth is that each different termite service requires a different approach. Sometimes the best solution for dealing with termites involves using more than one method of treatment on a home simultaneously. To help clear up some confusion on this topic, we will be posting articles on each of the popular treatment on the website, and these will be available to help you if you find termites in your home.

The oldest and most popular form of termite treatment is liquid treatment. This method can be used to deal with existing termite infestations or used as a preventative measure to keep termites away.

Originally, the goal of liquid treatment was to create a barrier in the soil around a home that termites could not pass. This method made use of specialized chemical compounds that prevent termites from getting moisture from soil that was essential to their survival, and termites would be repelled from this barrier.

This was very effective in some cases. However, this could cause problems if the barrier was not applied to a sufficient degree because termites could sometimes find untreated areas to bypass the barriers. This method is also less effective in homes with slab foundations or partially underground levels because technicians cannot access the entire exterior without intrusive drilling. If the treatment is applied carelessly, it can sometimes act to force the termites to a different part of the wall instead of the foundation. This can allow them to do significantly more damage and remain undetected in a location that they normally would avoid.

In more recent years, however, many of these problems have been resolved. Many of the newer liquid treatment products are non-repellant, and slowly poison termites with a chemical compound that they cannot detect. This slow acting poison can be spread between the termites and can rapidly infect and destroy the entire nest. This has helped to reduce, but not entirely eliminate, the problems with lack of complete exterior access for treatment. Liquid treatment is particularly useful in homes that have exterior access on all sides, as they require much less intrusive treatment to get complete protection.

Liquid treatment cannot always be redone annually. Depending on the products used, it can be as much as five years before another layer of treatment can be safely applied. While this is not a permanent solution, liquid treatment does not require regular inspections that are associated with bait stations, and is often cheaper in the long run.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we offer a variety of treatment methods for all types of termite problems. Our highly trained technicians will inspect your home and determine the most effective treatment method for your unique situation, all at a price that fits in your budget!

Termite treatment in Canton Georgia

Termite Bait System treatment

If you have termites attacking your home, it can sometimes be difficult to know which treatment method is best for your home. We have covered in a previous article when and how liquid termite treatment should be used, but there is another common method of treatment that can be used.

This method is known as a bait station system.

Bait stations are essentially food boxes for attracting termites. They are typically filled initially with some sort of wood product to attract termites. Once it has been confirmed that termites are active in the area, the bait is switched with a new supply coated in a slow acting poison. The termites will ingest this poison and carry it back to the nest with them.

Once termites begin to feed at the bait station systems, they will quickly spread the poison to a large majority of the nest, and this will help to decimate the population of the nest after some time has passed.

Bait stations are especially useful for homes that would require intrusive drilling for a similar liquid coverage.

Homes with slab foundations and finished basements are well served by bait station systems, as this prevents the necessity of deep drilling to protect all parts of the structure with a liquid barrier.

Bait stations require periodic inspections by a trained technician to ensure that they are functioning correctly. While this does often come at additional cost, it allows the stations to act as a early warning system for termites. This means that the technician inspecting the stations will often find dead termites inside of the station, and will be able to identify a termite problem long before damage is being done to the home.

Bait stations are a newer treatment method than the classic liquid treatment. While many pest control companies offer both liquid and bait treatment, certain companies will offer only one. There are a variety of reasons that they will offer for this, but it is important to remember that no termite treatment method is best in every scenario. A well trained technician can inspect your home and tell you which treatment method would best serve your specific situation.

Our team Canton Termite and Pest Control has decades of experience dealing with termites. We are happy to offer both liquid and bait station treatment options for our customers. Our technicians can inspect your home to determine which method will handle your termite service in the most efficient, safe, and cost effective way!

Boxelder Bugs- Red and black bugs-Canton Termite & Pest Control

Boxelder Bugs

The spring season is rapidly approaching, and while it brings beautiful days and warm weather to Georgia, it is also notorious for bringing a variety of pests along as well. Recently, we have received calls from homeowners who report finding clusters of tiny, red bugs around pine straw or mulch. Often when these areas are disturbed they reveal thousands of the red bugs swarming beneath. These are often misidentified as ticks, but typically these pests are in fact boxelder bug nymphs.

Eastern boxelder bug (Boisea trivittata) on a white background

Boxelder bugs are a type of beetle. They are common throughout most of North America, and are particularly prevalent in the warm climates of the Southeast. The red bugs that many homeowners find are the developing nymphs. Their presence is a sign of an active population of adult boxelder bugs. The adult boxelder bugs are much larger than the nymphs, growing to around 1/2 an inch in length. They are black in coloration and have distinct orange or red stripes on their bodies. While the nymphs are frequently found nearer to the ground, the adults will often be found on trees or on the exterior of the home.

 

True to their name, boxelder bugs will feed on the boxelder tree, consuming the soft parts of the tree such as the stems, leaves, and flowers. This causes little damage to the tree in small amounts, however larger populations can cause branch growth defects and a yellowish discoloration on the leaves.
The lifecycle of boxelder bugs begins in the springtime, when the female boxelder bugs lay eggs inside of the bark of trees. These eggs hatch within a few days and release the nymphs, who grow into adulthood during the summer. During late autumn, the boxelder bugs will mass around the outsides of homes or other buildings and attempt to find an access point to enter into the home. They do this because they are naturally attracted to the warmth from inside of the home, and will frequently take advantage of any exterior damage, open vents, or unsealed windows or doors to gain entry into the home.

 

Once inside, the boxelder bugs will seek out the warmest areas of the house, and homeowners are often caught off guard by the sudden influx of the pests inside of their home. While they can often appear in very large populations, it is important to note that the boxelder bugs do not reproduce or eat during this time, and are instead simply using the home as a way to survive the cold weather. This is not particularly reassuring, however, because they are still unwelcome guests in the home and can number in the thousands in some cases.

 

If they survive the winter, they will emerge during the spring and will frequently gather on the sunlight exterior walls of the home, where they are frequently found by homeowners. They will then seek out boxelder, maple, or ash trees to feed upon and lay eggs to restart the cycle once again.

 

Treating boxelder bugs can be a difficult process. Although they are susceptible to chemical pesticides, carelessly killing the populations inside or near to homes can leave behind large amounts of dead boxelder bugs, which can become an attractive food source for other pests such as ants or wasps.

 

The best method for dealing with boxelder bugs is to make sure that they cannot enter into your home during the winter. Several steps that can assist in this include:

 

  • Properly screen all vents and crawlspaces
  • Seal all windows and doors
  • Repair any exterior damage to the home
  • Avoid planting any boxelder trees in close proximity the home

 

These steps can help to prevent the boxelder bug population from continuing through the winter, and are also helpful for preventing other pest problems as well. If you choose to plant boxelder trees around your home, you can lower the risk of infestation by planting only the male trees, which are much less likely to be fed upon.

 

If you are dealing with a population of boxelder bugs on your property, it can often save you a lot of time and frustration if you call a professional service. Our team at Canton Termite and Pest Control has years of experience dealing with pests of all kinds. Our technicians can assess the situation in and around your home and implement the most efficient, safe, and fast acting solutions to solve any pest problem once and for all!

Termite control- Canton Termite (The Exterminator)

Termites are some of the most destructive pests on the planet. They are classified as a wood destroying organism (WDO) and can quickly become a nightmare for any homeowner unfortunate enough to deal with them.

Termites consume wood and plants, feeding off of the cellulose that they contain. Termites have specialized enzymes in their stomachs that allow them to digest this cellulose, and they do not need any other source of nutrients to sustain themselves. They typically will construct colonies in areas with large amounts of woody material for consumption. Unfortunately, these subterranean colonies can often be built in and around the foundation of homes or other structures.

Termites are slow eaters, and it would take hundreds of years for a single termite to consume any noticeable amount of wood. However, termites are social insects, and their nests can contain populations numbering in the millions. This allows them to cause significant structural damage to homes sometimes within just a few days. Every year, termites cause billions of dollars in damage to homes. Because most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover termite damage, much of this cost comes straight out of the pockets of homeowners.

Because of the risk that they pose, it is important for any responsible homeowner to have up to date termite inspections for their homes. At least every 5 years, homeowners should have a licensed pest control technician inspect their property for signs of current infestation or any conditions that might be conducive to future infestation. This is especially true if you are buying or selling a property. Dry wood termites are covered in the Wood Infestation Inspection Report(WIIR) that we have previously mentioned. When you are selling a home, you will be required to have a WDI from a certified pest control company, and this report will mention any signs of damage or conducive conditions.

By having these inspections, you are able to ensure that your home is in good condition and is safe from termites. Inspecting technicians can also perform preventative treatments of varying degrees to help wipe out any termites that might attempt to nest in the future. While the upfront cost of an inspection can cause some homeowners to avoid keeping up to date, it is important to remember that the damage that termites can potentially cause dwarfs the cost of protecting your home from them using preventative termite services.

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we have decades of experience performing termite inspections and service work. We can deal with any termite problems you might face using the most efficient, effective, and safe methods in the industry. We can also preventatively inspect and treat your home to protect you from termites before they decide to nest in or around your property.

This will allow any knowledge that is pertinent to servicing each house universally available to our entire team, helping our staff to be able to better serve you!

We will also be implementing a new system that will monitor the activity of different pests in each of our service areas. This will allow us to track trends and monitor population density of different pests. By doing this, we will be able to more accurately predict the seasons of high activity for common pests and administer preventative treatment before they become a problem in and around your home.

We have also overhauled the formats of all of paper working relate to services. In the 2nd quarter of 2017, you can expect to see new service paperwork on your doors. This newly reformatted paperwork will provide you with a comprehensive view of your service or inspection, which will help to clear up any potential confusion and make service run more smoothly.

One of our biggest and most requested change is the addition of our new Call Ahead notification system. This system will send you a reminder notification the day before any service or inspections. This will give you the time that you need to make preparations for allowing the technician access to the house and to make arrangements for any pets. The new system will also make it much easier for you to better communicate with our home office and receive any assistance that you might need.

While we are excited to have these new innovations to our company, we are aware that too much technology can be a bad thing.

Wow, awesome service and can do attitude! We have been bothered by critters in the attic, flying squirrels, for some time. After many sleepless nights, home remedies, and ear plugs, we knew we had to do something else. We called one of the "big" companies and got a "huge" price with no other options.. We knew there had to be a better way so we called Canton Termite and Pest Control. William came out and did a thorough inside and outside inspection , quickly figured out the problem, and fixed it just about as fast. He thought the problem was solved but left traps in place for a few days. After five of the best sleep nights we have had in months we are convinced the problem has been well corrected. Without hesitation I would highly recommend Canton Termite and Pest Control for any job they feel qualified to take on. Many Thanks, Gary Brumage, Lake Arrowhead, Waleska

Just wanted to thank our exterminator Joel @Canton Termite for not only responding very quickly when we had a minor insect infestation but for ensuring we stay bug free with our normal service. He always gives us plenty of notice and arrives on time and does a very professional job. Also want to thank the entire team... Tim, Ed, William and Brent for doing an awesome job with my home and my rental homes for the last few years. Keep up the great work...

HONEST, HELPFUL, NOT IN BUSINESS TO RIP PEOPLE OFF! I called this company and spoke with a gentleman regarding a strange substance on the exterior of our home. I thought it might be termites because the paint was removed from the area as though it was being eaten. He asked me to email him a photo. He called me back and assured me it was not termites. He and the owner of the company gave me some suggestions of how to treat this mold-type substance. This could have easily gone in the opposite direction and charged me lots of $ to investigate a pest problem. No need to wonder if you will get a fair, honest deal with this company. They have a perfect 5 star rating because they have earned it the old fashioned way - by being honest.

Last year the Cherokee County senior center assisted in me in finding a company to take care of a roach infestation in my home. I had tried several companies but I kept paying and the roaches never went away. William Botts with Canton Termite and Pest control came out and in 2 treatments got the job done. I am on a fixed income and appreciated the integrity and quality of this company. Today I realized I never thanked Canton Termite and Pest Control. I am thankful for what they did for me and refer my friends and anyone else who ask. They get the job done!

Great customer service and prompt attention! William came out and did our initial application, but we need more treatment. Ed called me in no time and set up another treatment, same day! When Brent came out he was so professional and friendly! Took care of the application quickly, reassuring us that they are there whenever we need them! So glad I am using Canton Termite and Pest Control now for my pest services!
