Guide To Avoiding Bed Bugs In Shallotte, NC

Suffering from a bed bug infestation is no one’s idea of a good time. You feel violated, filthy, and unsure of where the perpetrators are hiding. Here are four important ways to try and avoid bed bug activity from entering your home.

  1. Make sure to do your laundry frequently. You’ll want to wash and dry everything on very high heat in order to kill off any bed bug activity.
  2. Reduce clutter around the home. Clean up any piles of clothing, linens, etc. Make sure everything remains orderly so that bed bugs can’t find nooks and crannies in which to hide.
  3. Frequently vacuum and steam clean all areas around and under the beds, furniture, upholstery, walls, floors, etc.
  4. Before bringing anything into your house, make sure to inspect it thoroughly; this used furniture, luggage, clothing, cardboard boxes, etc.

At the first sign or suspicion of bed bug activity, the best thing you can do is contact the team at Jay Taylor Exterminating. Our bed bug control solutions offer complete treatment and protection of your home, eliminating conducive conditions and ridding the area of the infestation once and for all.

How To Spot Termite Damage In Shallotte, NC

Termite damage can be a real nightmare. The large-scale damage that termites can cause is exceptionally devastating, costly, and dangerous to your safety. Review the following list of signs that you may be suffering from termite damage.

  • Weakened wood that can be pierced by a screwdriver
  • Damaged wood that sounds hollow when you knock on it
  • Wood that is warped, moisture-damaged, or rotting
  • Piles of powder and wood-shaving at burrowing sites
  • Clicking sounds and munching noises coming from inside the walls
  • Swarmer termites flying around in groups looking for places to nest
  • Cast off wings of swarmer termites found near doors and windows
  • “White ants” that are actually worker termites with cream-colored bodies
  • “Gallery tunnels” built by termites with saliva and dirt/mud for protection

The best plan of action to take when it comes to dealing with termite activity is to call the team at Jay Taylor Exterminating. We are experienced and ready to deal with any termite situation, large or small. A termite infestation is not something you can handle on your own, and you don’t have to with our termite control options. Call us today.

Common Ants Found In Shallotte, NC

North Carolina is home to four common species of ants. Look over the different types of ants and make sure to contact the team at Jay Taylor Exterminating at the first sign of an infestation. We are familiar with each species and know how to eliminate them from your home and keep them out for good.

Fire Ants
Fire Ants create their colonies in large, sandy mounds that can be up to a foot tall. They create large tunneling systems underground and can access your home through tiny entry points underneath and around the perimeter of the house. These ants bite and leave large welts when they are disturbed.

Pharaoh Ants
Pharaoh Ants are mostly considered indoor ants. They have intricate colonies made up of castes, and they usually thrive inside of buildings. They need conditions to be temperate, and they prefer central heating as they are a tropical species.

Argentine Ants
Argentine Ants find their way into your home during the hot summer months as they look to escape the heat. They often leave foraging trails leading to their areas of colonization, which include moist soil, under floorboards, and under buildings. They feed on many different food items in your home.

Odorous House Ants
Odorous House Ants often nest under rocks or in soil. They get into your home seeking food, and their colonies grow up to 100,000 ants in size. They emit a smell of rotten coconuts when they are crushed.
