Scenic Clarksville, Arkansas, sits at the foothills of the Ozarks in the Arkansas River valley. Residents enjoy the natural beauty of nearby Ozark National Forest and Lake Dardanelle. However, other denizens also enjoy the area’s natural resources. Ants, termites, rodents and mosquitoes are a few of the unwanted occupants of Clarksville and the Ozark area. Although insects and wildlife are important to the ecosystem, they become pests when they enter homes and gardens, destroy property or spread disease. Adams Pest Control provides pest control services to keep the exterior and interior of your property free of unwanted critters.
Mosquitoes are not just a nuisance. They also spread diseases such as chikungunya, West Nile Virus and dengue fever. The best way to reduce the risk of being infected with a mosquito-borne disease is to avoid being bitten. Adams Pest Control provides a multi-step approach to controlling mosquito infestations.
We examine the grounds of your property to identify potential breeding sites. Bird baths, swimming pools, children’s toys and guttering are a few common places that provide enough water to allow mosquitoes to breed. We recommend ways to eradicate places of standing water so that mosquitoes cannot breed. Keeping your lawn well-tended also eliminates breeding sites.
We offer several types of mosquito treatment programs, including one-time, quarterly, monthly and seasonal treatments. We evaluate the extent of the problem and recommend a plan that suits your needs.
Termites cause more than $5 billion in damage and treatment costs each year in the United States. There are several types of termites in Arkansas, including three types of subterranean termites. Subterranean termites live in nests that connect by underground tunnels to places with food and water, sometimes hundreds of feet away. Nests can be home to tens of thousands of termites. Because they must maintain contact with soil to survive, they build mud tubes that connect to sites above ground, in walls or in flooring. A tell-tale sign of termites is the presence of these tubes. Termites eat wood, paper and other materials containing cellulose and must have moisture to survive.
You may not notice termite activity until extensive damage has occurred. If you see mud tubes or piles of wings near windows, doors, furniture or other wooden objects, call a pest control specialist immediately. It is not safe for homeowners to try to eradicate termites on their own. The exact species must be identified and a treatment plan devised that will eliminate the specific pest.
