from unwanted pests is
what we do best
Beeline Pest Control is a full service provider of reliable and safe pest control methods for your families protection
Your home is your castle, your haven from the world around you. While entertaining certain guests in your home can be a great way to connect with people in a quieter, more comfortable setting than a public venue would offer, it’s important to be able to do so on your own terms. Any number of unwanted visitors here in Texas have the power to put a damper on your home life. Though some drop-in friends or relatives may fall into this category, those guests outside the human species are actually cause for the greatest concern.
At Beeline Pest Control, this is our specialty. Since we’re locally owned and operated, we have firsthand knowledge of and experience with the local invaders interested in moving into your home without an invitation. Our state is home to a variety of pests. They won’t call to let you know they’re on their way or knock before coming inside, and they certainly aren’t willing to abide by any sort of tenancy contract. Evicting them tends to be a particularly tricky undertaking without the help of a skilled Texas pest control service.
Since the primary termite found in Texas is a subterranean variety, the single easiest sign of termites is the mud tunnels they build on foundations between the ground and a home’s wood components. However, there is a significant reason to consider contacting Beeline Pest Control for an evaluation of your property before visible signs are detected. Before any actual treatments can begin, it’s important to understand the type of problem present. Termites are not always visible, which means the Beeline Pest Control experts must first determine where the pests are entering the home and how much damage is already present. That isn’t always easy, which makes it even more important that homeowners contact an expert as soon as any sign of an infestation is noted.
While a variety of insects create issues for San Antonio, Texas homeowners, bed bugs are one of the more difficult ones to eradicate. For years, bed bugs were virtually non-existent in the United States as commonly-employed insecticides were highly effective at eliminating them. Modern regulations controlling the use of those pesticides resulted in a resurgence of the bugs, and they are now once again routinely seen in Texas. Today, it’s all too common for homeowners to become hosts and experience uncomfortable bites while they’re sleeping.
The two main species of rats in Texas that homeowners and business owners alike encounter are the Norway rat and the Roof rat. Here are the key differences between them and why you need to be wary of them.
Rats are mammals and they are also very efficient breeders. With colder weather beginning to come in they are going to be searching for warmer and more comfortable places to live. There are a few different species of rats in Texas but they are all wanting to take advantage of your food, water, shelter, and any other resources that they can get their hands on.
This remains a question many humans would love to know the answer to. What people often don’t realize is certain species are beneficial to the planet, as they help to recycle organic material that is decaying. Obviously, however, some species carry diseases that are harmful to humans, and these are the ones that should be eliminated from the home.
Regular old Paper Wasps are the most common kind we get here in Texas. Nearly every home in Texas has at least one nest on it but we often see homes with anywhere from 5 to 25 nests on them.
These pests are very protective of their nest and will get aggressive if they feel like there is any threat present. They are particularly agitated by vibrations and loud noises such as lawn mowers. The most common Texas hornet is commonly referred to as a cicada killer. These can be recognized by their black and white coloring instead of the yellow and black coloring that most of the other bee and wasp-like pest have.
Why Are Ants So Hard To Eradicate?
Using do-it-yourself products often doesn’t work when homeowners are dealing with ants. These products lack the strength of those used by professionals and often only treat those that can be seen, not hidden in the home. Once ants begin dying off, others in the colony realize there is a problem and relocate, making it even harder to kill them. Property owners find that treating the home or office makes the problem worse as a result of the actions they have taken to try to resolve the problem.
Scorpions are not generally found inside human structures and are considered transient pests that accidentally enter a home. Scorpions can be found under the house or in areas with water (e.g., bathroom, laundry room, etc.). Sealing windows and doors and caulking any cracks in the foundation will discourage scorpions from entering a structure.
Centipedes are mostly a nuisance pest, but can bite humans. However, this is not generally a serious concern. Young centipedes are usually not able to penetrate skin, and bites from larger centipedes usually only cause minor irritation similar to mild bee stings.
We understand how you just want to enjoy your little slice of outside in comfort, but nothing ruins that faster than mosquitoes. We’ll help you reduce the mosquito population around your home so you can have those summer nights you dream of.
At Beeline, we know how frustrating and uncomfortable it can be to have mosquitoes buzzing around your yard, driving you and your family indoors rather than enjoying the good weather. Mosquito control is a vital aspect of keeping your family safe and comfortable. Their itchy bites can spread harmful diseases such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever, West Nile virus, and Zika virus.
The most common type of earwig found in the yards of Texas residents, is an exotic species called the European earwig. These earwigs are easy to recognize from their cerci, which is the large, pincer-like appendages on the hind end. Cerci are used in self-defense and courtship and will deliver only a mild pinch to humans. The earwigs body is elongated, flat and red-brown in color. Earwigs range in length from one-fourth inch to almost one and a half inches long. Adult earwigs have a short pair of leathery wings covering a folded pair of membranous wings. They are weak fliers and move mostly by crawling.
Moths are attracted to natural fibers, like wool or silk. Closet moths like dark, undisturbed places and are very secretive. If you do catch a glimpse of these moths, you’ll notice that they’re buff-colored, and usually 2-5 cm in length.
