Ants in the Spring
Ants in Texas begin to be more active when the weather is warming up. They are on the hunt for anything that they can eat and new areas to inhabit. Coincidentally your home may be the perfect area that they are looking to take over. Without taking advantage of our pest control or using preventative methods, you may be advertising your home to these unwanted pests. In order to keep these ants out of your home here are some steps from Beeline that you can take. Sealing doors, windows, and cracks will help prevent ants from getting inside your home in the first place. Another way to prevent ants from entering your home is to store all food items in sealed containers. Leaving food out or not properly cleaning up after meals may be what could attract ants and other pests into your home.

Termite Pest Control

Termites in Texas can spell disaster for any homeowner with their expensive and damaging habits. Things to be on the lookout for are small holes in the wood of your home, crumbling drywall, drooping doors or floors, insect wings and small shelter tubes are some of the more obvious signs of a termite infestation. These signs will be your red flags for understanding when it’s time for pest control. It’s important to keep in mind that termites can be attracted to moisture and wood that may be commonly kept outside. Effective tactics to keep termites away from your property are to take care of any standing water or excessive moisture around the exterior of your home. Also by cleaning up trash and loose piles of wood around your home and yard will help to not attract termites. Be sure to seal all cracks and holes in your home’s foundation, which may provide a convenient entry point for termites. The key aspect of discouraging these pests from making your home their home is to not give them a way to get into your home in the first place. Pests are constantly searching for the resources that they need to live, don’t let your food and shelter become theirs as well!
