Maryland Mouse and Rat Removal

Some animals from the wild need to be caught and transported to an area where they can live without disturbing their human neighbors. Other vermin need to be caught and killed. In Maryland mouse and rat removal is of prime importance. Wild rats are not only ugly, they carry many infectious diseases. A rat infestation can be a problem anywhere in the State; it does not matter if it is in an urban setting or the suburbs, older home or newer home. While many cases of rat infestation can be caused by open garbage or neglect, rats like to burrow up to four feet from their nests to their food sources often going undetected. They chew materials like paper, wood, clothing and upholstery to build nice, cozy nests in which to raise families. A female rat can give birth to 84 babies in a single year.

Maryland Mosquito Control

This has been a very bad summer for mosquitoes. According to some experts, mosquitoes are some of the deadliest pests known to man (and woman!). Some Maryland mosquitoes have been known to carry the West Nile Virus or Malaria — two of the most dangerous diseases around. Having access to Maryland Mosquito control can reduce your risk of getting these diseases. Children should to limit their outdoor play, especially early in the morning and near sundown.

The oldest mosquito fossils date back some 200 million years, to the Cretaceous period. They have lasted this long, so they must provide something good for the eco-system. They do. Mosquito eggs and larva coat many ponds, lakes and rivers. Adult mosquitos provide simple meals for birds. So without their contribution, there would be fewer birds pollinating our flowers and crops, looking beautiful in the trees, and singing to us in the early morning.

Many of the products available on retail stores aren’t nearly as effective at controlling mosquitoes as the products professionals use. In addition to sprays, many professionals use integrated pest management. When looking to control mosquitoes, a pest control professional will look to remove standing water from areas near your home. Some of those areas include birdbaths, kiddie pools, rain gutters and many other places. This helps prevent mosquitoes from breeding near your home.

When you call Maryland mosquito control, the professional service technician will show you the breeding areas around your home so they can be eliminated. You will be told in plain language how we plan to terminate their swarms. Rest assured that any product we use will not harm humans or pets.

Maryland Termite Control

If you are trying to sell your home in Maryland, do you have to have a termite inspection? Inspection for termite damage depends on the buyer’s lender. If the Federal government is involved in the loan (VA, FHA, Etc.) then the answer is yes. If you are purchasing a home should you get a termite inspection? Absolutely. This very affordable procedure will guarantee you that there are no infestations and colonies eating away your foundation. Many Maryland homes are termite prone because of the older wood, moist climate and some garden mulch. Maryland termite control is a wise investment to protect your most valuable possession.

Termites look like white ants with wings. When you see them, the damage is already done. When mature the number of termites in a thriving colony can range from several hundred hungry insets to several million. The larger the number, the larger the damage to your home and garden. The queen can lay as many as 2,000 eggs in 24 hours and unless stopped, can live up to 45 years. Just one queen and all her progeny in the structure of your house can eat you out of house and home.

In our eco-system the termite’s role is to re-fertilize the soil. That’s fine – they can fertilize miles away from where you live. In order to stop all the destruction, termites need to be killed rapidly and not just moved to another location to harass other home owners. When you need these pests eradicated for good, call Affordablepest.com.

The first step in Maryland termite control is killing the colony. After the colony is eradicated then Affordablepest.com will search for their points of entry so they can be sealed off. Termites are crafty pests and try to remain out of sight of any predators, including humans. They build extravagant labyrinths of tunnels and chambers and remain hidden. This is why when you actually see a swarm, they have already wreaked havoc on wood, carpet, cloth and sometimes clothing. After the termites have been eliminated and all ingress closed, your home will be free of these white winged ants.

However, you do not want to sit back and think you are free for life. Like a bad cold, you get rid of the virus but it can hit you again next winter or summer. This is true in Maryland termite control. Even though the colony has been killed and all their escape routes shuttered, they can reappear at any time. This is why having a month service inspection is so important to the homeowner who wants to protect property and possessions.

Getting affordable Maryland termite control is just a call away. We will make an appointment at your convenience to analyze your current condition. We will make a plan of action to eradicate your termites. We will give you a written estimate on our charges and provide you with our guarantee. There are no hidden charges.

Do not put up with one single termite. If she is the queen, she and her family of thousands will take over as head of the household.
