We’ve probably all seen the signs before: ants scurrying over the kitchen floor, termite tracks in the baseboards, or the dreaded stare-down with a cockroach. More than just an unpleasant surprise, these pests can spread disease and fecal matter throughout your home. You can try to solve the problem yourself, but killing the insects you see is not enough. There are often far more of them hiding in walls and dark spaces. That’s where PCS Pest Control comes in: we can help you fight infestations and prevent them from happening again. Read on to learn what species we can help you fight and why pest control is important.
Early infestations of termites can be hard to spot, but once they take root they can become dangerous to you and your property. Colonies can contain hundreds to millions of termites, and they eat not only wood, but paper, books, insulation, and more. Termites cost Americans over $5 billion in damages every year*, so be sure to protect your investment with a pest control solution you can trust.
An ant colony can contain hundreds of thousands of individuals, with multiple queens producing thousands more eggs every day. Carpenter ants are the most common pest species in Georgia, but there are dozens of other species that live in the area. Many at-home insecticides are only effective against certain species, and may only treat the ants you see, leaving most of the colony untouched.
Georgia has only two harmful spider species: black widows and brown recluse spiders. While they are not deadly, bites from these two species can be very painful and require medical attention. Spiders are especially difficult targets for extermination, because pesticides often don’t work.
German cockroaches are the most common, problematic species. They mature within weeks, and each female can produce 30-40 eggs at a time. You may also encounter “palmetto bugs,” or American cockroaches, which are a larger outdoor species that may come inside to escape the rain. Cockroaches are infamous for their ability to survive almost anything, which can make them hard to take care of on your own.
Get Rid of Them For Good
You don’t want to put your family at risk — you need a solution. That’s why you need professionals like PCS Pest Control Solutions.
We will inspect your home or property for signs of an infestation and find a customized response to remove the pests from your home. For large-scale problems, like ants and termite colonies, the most effective response is often bait laced with a time-release poison. The bait will be carried back to the colony and take care of the problem at its source. Poison may sound scary, but the products we use are safe for both people and pets, and we have products to use indoors that won’t stain or leave unpleasant odors.
