When it comes to pests, this summer has been one for the record books in San Antonio. Reports show a nearly 30% increase in pest control related calls to exterminators in the San Antonio area. So what pests are all of these San Antonio residents calling in about?
I recently had the opportunity to talk with some of the pest control professionals at Bulwark Exterminating in San Antonio. I asked, “What are the top three most common called about pests at your company?”
Here are Bulwark Pest Control’s top three San Antonio pests:
There are three predominant species of cockroach that commonly invade San Antonio homes during the summer months. These include: the Asian cockroach, the American cockroach, and the smokeybrown cockroach. Most of us in San Antonio can’t tell the difference among the species of cockroach, we just know we don’t want them in our homes.
San Antonio cockroaches prefer to live out doors and in the sewers, but the will occasionally become a nuisance when they enter homes in search of food, water and shelter. Once inside, these home invaders are very difficult to get rid of because they can breed so rapidly. It’s about this time that homeowners make a call, needing professional San Antonio roach control.
There are three common ants in San Antonio that give homeowners headaches. These ants include: Fire ants, Carpenter ants, and Rasberry Crazy ants. While each of these ant species is unique in their own way, they are all nuisances. Fire ants will build huge mounds throughout your property, thus destroying it. They are also notorious for unleashing vicious stings when disturbed. Crazy ants are drawn to electronic equipment, swarming around electrical pulses. This causes damage and can even short out the equipment.
If these two ant species weren’t bad enough, there is the carpenter ant. These ants build their nests in wood, ruining the stability of anything they inhabit. This includes your home. It’s this behavior that leads many San Antonio homeowners to believe that their home has fell victim to termites; as opposed to Carpenter ants. No matter the species of ant you’re dealing with, San Antonio Ant Control is your best bet to exterminate ants.
Bark scorpions and Striped scorpions are notorious pests in San Antonio. When asking the Scorpion control professionals at Bulwark Exterminating what the top pests in the area are, they responded “scorpions without a doubt.” Scorpions are just creepy. They love to hide underneath things inside your home, waiting for nightfall to emerge so they can hunt their next insect meal. In fact, it is common to find scorpions hiding out inside your shoes and underneath your bed sheets. One misplace appendage can lead to a very painful scorpion sting. When it comes to scorpions, homeowners in San Antonio don’t mess around; they get professional San Antonio Scorpion control.
