WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Stars

My exterminator Jay is fabulous. He’s aware that I have animals and he’s careful. He informs me about pest/rodent information like he did yesterday explaining the influx of rodents lately and leaving a rodent box to check on later. He also does heavy spraying at certain times of the year and explains that as well. He always texts me when he is coming which I think is very courteous. He’s terrific!!

The area I live in is known for scorpions and we found one in our home when we first moved in. I needed to take care of this problem immediately especially because I have children. Bulwark got back to right away. Isaih Sanders did an amazing job! He gave our home a heavy barrier and made sure got around the entry points. Would really recommend and is great with Military Veterans!

3 MOST COMMON
PEST PROBLEMS IN Raleigh

SERVICES

Most Common Pest In Raleigh

Ants

Ants are known for causing havoc in gardens, lawns, and homes. They invade these areas in the pursuit of food, water, and shelter. These three necessities are what ants need to survive, and they will invade your property and your home to get them. Failing to regularly maintain your lawn and having unsanitary conditions inside your home can entice ants to take up residence with you.

Two of the most common ant species you may have to deal with are fire ants and carpenter ants. Fire ants are an invasive species with the ability to adapt and spread quickly. In the process of invading an area, they will kill off or displace entire colonies of native ants. Fire ants are highly aggressive and will fiercely defend their nest. They have stingers and use a coordinated attack that can kill young wildlife, small pets, and humans with a severe allergy to their venom.

Though fire ants prefer to nest underground in open areas such as grasslands and fields, they have been known to live inside homes and crawlspaces. They invade homes when water and food sources are readily available and can be hard to manage once they have established a nest.

Carpenter antsare notorious for causing structural and cosmetic damage to homes. They don’t actually eat wood but burrow into it to create elaborate nests with thousands of tunnels. Carpenter ants can be found living in the structural timber of houses, firewood, trees, and deadfall. They are ultimately drawn to wood that has been damaged from such things as water damage. Once inside your home, they can be hard to remove and often require an expert exterminator to eradicate them completely. Ensuring that your home doesn’t offer easy food and water is the best defense against all ant invasions.

Termites

The three commontermite speciesare dampwood termites, drywood termites, and subterranean termites. Dampwwod termites grow to be 20 to 25 millimeters long and are yellowish-brown. They aren’t a significant threat unless your property is full of shrubs or you live near a citrus farm. Dampwood termites will generally only infest wood that’s at ground level or slightly below. Drywood termites grow to be 11 to 12 millimeters long and have a brownish-black abdomen with a brown thorax and head. These termites can infest homes and other buildings, causing significant damage.

The most common and most concerning are subterranean termites. They grow to around 7 millimeters and range in color from pale, yellowish-brown to cream colored. Termite prevention is key to keeping all of these under control, in turn protecting your home and other buildings from irreparable damage. Yearly termite treatments are a great way to keep them at bay.

Spiders

There are many species of spiders plaguing the United States. A spider is classified as an arachnid and has eight legs, multiple sets of eyes, and can grow from just a few millimeters up to4 inches in size. Most spiders are ambush predators who build elaborate nests out of the silken web they produce out of their bodies. Others are active hunters who stalk and chase their prey. There are many spiders whose venom is harmful to humans, with some being deadly if not properly treated.

Spiders will invade your home in the pursuit of moisture and food. If you haveissues with spidersin your home, you most likely have other pests that are natural prey for spiders, and getting rid of these other pests is a good place to start. However, spiders will cause a mess with webbing, dead insect carcasses, and other debris once inside. Getting rid of spiders can be difficult when you have a full-blown infestation, and you may need the help of a professional exterminating agency to eliminate the threat. 

As with many different pests, spiders will enter your home through openings in your home’s foundation, around windows and doors, and other cracks or fissures. Sealing off and repairing any and all of such areas will help prevent all manner of pests from obtaining access to the interior of your home, including spiders.

Pest infestations pose a very real health risk. Insects are known to carry diseases, aggravate allergies, and inflict painful bites and stings. These insect populations start outside. Raleigh has plenty of wooded forests, planet vegetation, and natural water sources. All of these are good things, and even insects in the right place are good things. What you don’t want is that pest population blooming and invading your home. Since we can’t kill of all bugs everywhere, nor do we wish too, you must protect your home against those pest pressures. Build a protective barrier now before an infestation happens. It is much easier on you and your family to keep the bugs out that it is to get rid of them once they have infested your home or property.

Finding the Right Solution to Pest Control in Raleigh

DIY Pest Control vs Professional

In some cases, DIY pest control can be successful. For example, if you have pets and are dealing with fleas, you can often gain control of the issue by using a flea prevention product specifically designed for your pet. Another example of DIY pest control is using repellent sprays, candles, and bug spray to deter mosquitoes from biting you and your family when spending time outdoors. Though DIY pest control may work in these two examples, there are times when professional pest control is the only answer.

Professional pest control is needed when you have tried to eliminate an infestation of pests but can’t seem to get rid of them. Professional assistance is also called for when the pest you are dealing with is a threat to the safety of your family and your pets through the spread of disease. For example, when dealing with filthy cockroaches, menacing mosquitoes, or venomous spiders, a professional exterminating agency such as Bulwark Exterminating is better equipped to make short work of dealing with significant infestations.

How Much Does Pest Control Cost?

Termite tenting cost

The size of your home is important for determining the cost of termite tenting services. The average cost ranges from $5 to $20 per linear foot. Treatment for an entire home can range from $1,200 to $2,500 or even more.

Roach exterminator cost

Cockroaches are the most challenging pests to eliminate when dealing with an active infestation, often requiring multiple treatments to extinguish the infestation fully. The cost of a single cockroach extermination treatment is around $150. This cost can range from $100 to $400 or even as much as $600, depending on the severity of your cockroach infestation.

Mice exterminator cost

Though mice may be cute, they are a pest you don’t want scurrying around inside your home. They spread diseases and sickness, contaminate food, and destroy your belongings to create nests. In addition, getting rid of mice can be costly, ranging from $170 to over $1,000 for an out-of-control infestation.

What to Expect

What Can You Expect After an Exterminator Sprays for Roaches?

After an exterminator sprays for roaches, you can expect to continue seeing cockroaches in and around your home. You may see roaches more often and throughout the day as the treatment confuses them. They will be moving slow, and you will begin to see dead carcasses. Over time you will see less roach activity until they are all gone. It’s also common to see baby roaches or nymphs, but not to worry as they will consume the bait and the bodies of the dead adult roaches, becoming poisoned by the same treatment.

How Do Exterminators Get Rid of Mice?

The most common methods exterminators use to get rid of mice are mechanical traps, glue traps, and chemical baits. Another step used for long-term treatment is to seal any entry points to keep the mice from reinfesting your home. If you have pets, the chemical baits are excluded to protect your pets from harm.

Bulwark Exterminating is ready, willing, and able to help you with all of your Raleigh pest control needs. Regardless if you are dealing with spiders, mice, hornets, or some other pest, our professional exterminators have the training and the experience to eliminate them all.
