Ants in your kitchen? We got it. Spiders? No problem. Don’t see pests yet, but worried they will come in? We have a plan for that too. That is the beauty of a customized approach. No matter what type of pests you run into, we have a pest control solution for you:
Residents in Downingtown and the surrounding area may have noticed small, brown, shield-shaped bugs in their home. These are the Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs, a non-native species that has thrived in the Pennsylvania climate since their introduction to our area. Residents may notice an uptick in stink bug activity during the fall and spring.
While these pests are not harmful to humans, nor do they reproduce inside our homes, they can be quite a nuisance thanks to their special defense system: their smell. When alarmed or even squashed, their scent glands release a noxious smell that is often described as "rotten". As part of our pest control program, we will treat your home for these smelly invaders to keep them out for good!
There are many different species of ants in the world, but here at Masters Touch, we have run into a few common species. These species include:
Carpenter ants are typically on the larger side, around 5/8th of an inch, and are black to reddish in color. If left untreated, these ants can multiply and cause extensive damage. When left to their own devices, a single-queen colony can reach numbers of 10,000.
These ants are drawn to our homes for the moisture and will burrow through wood that has been softened with water. Once inside your home, they will tunnel and create nests within the structure of your home. While they don’t actually eat wood like termites do, carpenter ant damage is no joke!
The Odorous House Ant, otherwise known as the sugar ant, gets its nickname from its propensity for sweet things, such as fruits on your counter, but will also feed on dead insects and other proteins in a pinch. Their nests can be found hidden under hard objects.
DIY treatments often fail when treating Odorous House Ants because of their colony structure. One nest can have thousands of individuals and multiple queens meaning, if you don’t eliminate the entire nest, the colony may splinter and multiply quicker.
There are a few signs you are dealing with Odorous House Ants:
Pavement ants are visually similar to carpenter ants at first glance, but are half the size of a carpenter ant. You will typically find a pavement ant infestation in a building with a concrete slab foundation.
This particular species also likes to feed on anything sweet or other dead insects. While they won’t destroy your home like carpenter ants will, the pavement ant brings in bacteria that may make your family sick if the problem isn’t taken care of.
You spend a lot of time in your home. Shouldn’t it be pest-free? Unfortunately, DIY solutions often only provide temporary solutions. Here at Masters Touch, we pride ourselves on a friendly and professional approach to pest control in Pennsylvania. Let us do the work for you so you can get back to what matters most: making memories in your home with the ones you love.
