Pests & insects we control include, but are not limited to:

Ants

There are over 12,000 different species of ants in the world and like wasps and bees, ants form a distinct caste system. Each type of ant fills a specific role to support the colony. Ants can nest about anywhere in and around your property. They can also enter your home through the tiniest cracks, seeking food or water. Our team is experienced in treating all different kinds of ant species. We can effectively control the infestation, remove nests, and prevent these pests from returning.

Spiders

While most species of spiders do not bite, there are certain types that will. A spider bite can cause a reaction similar to a bee or wasp sting. Some people may even have an allergic reaction to the spider’s venom. Spiders primarily enter homes through open, poorly screened windows or through cracks around door and window frames. If you find spiders throughout your home, contact us today. We will implement a safe control plan that prevents them from entering your home, protecting you and your family against spider bites.

Roaches

Considered one of the most adaptable and successful animals on the planet, cockroaches have been around for thousands of years. Roaches carry allergens and microbes that are dangerous to humans. These pests love small, tight spaces and will often enter a home or building in search of food or water. The chemical trails they leave in their feces transmit bacteria onto surfaces and attract more roaches to the area. Fleetwood Pest Control is trained to locate areas of cockroach activity, identify the causes of the problem, and implement a custom treatment plan.

All Wood Boring Insects

Fleetwood Pest Control is equipped to rid your home of all types of wood boring insects, including beetles, carpenter ants and bees, and wasps. These insects can cause damage to all types of wooden structures or products. While some wood boring insects help to recycle dead trees and play an important role in our ecosystem, there are some cases where they can become detrimental to our forests and crops.

Homes and businesses constructed of natural wood are at risk of being infected by wood boring insects. As adults, these insects lay their eggs in the cracks in wood, and once inside your property, they can infest floorboards, furniture, wooden beams and any other wooden object. Our specialists will carry out a thorough inspection, access the extent of your problem, and apply treatment targeted at young larvae buried in the wood. The most appropriate treatment plan will depend on the species, the severity of the infestation, and the construction of your home or building.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are tiny parasites that feed on blood and are often found in groups. The name “Bed Bug” is derived from their preferred hiding places: in mattresses, bedding and other sleeping areas. They are most active at night and can multiply extremely fast. No building is safe from bed bugs. If you have mysterious bite marks that you believe may be from bed bugs, contact us today. We will determine how many rooms the bed bugs have infested, and then decide the best course of treatment that allows you to resume your life as quickly as possible.

Bees

Bees are extremely beneficial to our environment, however, bee hives can cause long-term damage to the structure of your property. The presence of bees is also dangerous due to the possibility of getting stung. Fleetwood Pest Control can have these pests safely removed without harming their nests.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are one of the largest ant species in the United States. They live both indoors and outdoors in moist, decaying or hollow wood. While carpenter ants do not eat wood, they will feed on a variety of food that people eat. Rough wood shavings mixed with parts of dead ants is a sign of a carpenter ant infestation. Our team will locate the nest of the carpenter ants, safely remove them, and prevent them from returning. If left untreated, a carpenter ant infestation can cause serious damage to your home.

Fleas

Fleas are wingless insects with mouths designed for piercing skin and sucking blood from both birds and mammals. Typically found on and transported by pets, fleas can also be driven into your home during long periods of wet weather. Our treatment will depend on which areas of your home have been infected by fleas. If your pet has fleas, we will thoroughly treat all areas where your pet has been.

Mosquitos

Mosquitos can carry and transmit a number of diseases, and are most active from dusk until dawn. The presence of mosquitos can create uncomfortable outdoor living conditions, making spending time outside quite unenjoyable. If you have a mosquito infestation, Fleetwood Pest Control will first target and eliminate water sources favorable for mosquito breeding. Our treatment plan may also require the use of chemical products.

Ticks

Ticks are small arachnids and external parasites that feed on whatever blood is available to them. They are particularly known for biting livestock, deers, dogs and humans. They carry a number of diseases and latch onto pets, people and clothing. If you suspect a tick infestation, contact us today, as ticks require cautious and thorough removal.

Wood Beetles

Wood beetles tend to infest floors, furniture, hardwood paneling and various other wood materials. Evidence of a wood beetle infestation is a small pile of powder that has been left behind after the beetles have chewed and digested wood. These beetles also produce small, round holes about the size of pencil lead. Fleetwood Pest Control can determine is you have an active infestation, effectively manage the wood boring beetles and disinfect any structures they have inhabited.

Rodents

Rodents are challenging to control and present a serious menace to your home. In addition to spreading diseases to both humans and pets, rodents can cause property damage and contaminate your food. Fully trained and licensed, our team can identify the rodent’s point of entry, safely remove the pest and seal them out for good.

Rodent Identification & Control

Rodents, such as mice and rats, are warm-blooded mammals that can be found throughout the world. They have oversized front teeth for chewing and are very rapid breeders, so a rodent problem can go from bad to worse very quickly. Because of their body type, rodents can squeeze through small, tight spaces. Wild rodents carry a variety of diseases, so it is best to keep away from them to avoid being bitten.

In order to maintain a rodent-free home, store away any possible food sources, such as small crumbs, dry goods, and garbage. These items should be tightly sealed in containers to prevent contamination. Cardboard objects should also be properly disposed of, as rodents tend to chew them up for their nests.
