Cornelius Spider Control
While many people will tell you to never kill a spider, spinning a yarn about bad luck and their power as mosquito-eaters, the truth of the matter is that a spider infestation is no fun for anyone. Regardless of whether or not you suffer from bona fide arachnophobia.
Of course, spiders can be beneficial – eating insects and other pests – but some species can also be harmful to people and animals. Spider fangs do emit venom which, depending on the type of spider, can produce symptoms ranging from mildly unpleasant to lethal.
Living in Cornelius, close to water, spiders can be even more of an issue than in other places. And while home remedies, like regular dusting to remove webs and the sealing of cracks, may discourage spiders, if you continue to find multiple spiders in your home, garage, basement or attic, it is time to call in the professionals. Why? Because once you have a spider infestation, without professional spider control services it’s not likely to be over any time soon – most spiders live for about a year, but some can live as long as 15!
At A+ we know exactly how to rid your home, and your dreams, of spiders.
House Ant Control
Another pest common to Cornelius is the odorous house ant. Sometimes called odorous ants, these are small, measuring just 2.4 to 3.3 mm in length, but powerful, persistent pests.
Odorous ants enter your home in search of food, particularly sweets and meats, which is why your kitchen pantry, cupboards and floor might be the first place you spot the trail.
How serious are these pests and how important is it to get rid of them? Well, for one thing, they run true to their name: odorous ants release an unpleasant smell when crushed and when they invade kitchen storage areas they may contaminate food products. It’s also important to note that home remedies, such as liquid and aerosol insecticide products, can actually create more problems by scattering the workers and creating more nesting sites.
In short, it’s best to get A+ Termite and Pest control professionals in to assess, implement and monitor the situation, and develop an ongoing plan of action designed for your unique situation to get odorous house ants out – and keep them out!
