Once a western frontier military post, Fort Smith sits on the western state line of Arkansas. Along with creeks and ponds throughout the state, the Arkansas River outlines the northern border and parts of the western and eastern borders. Average temperatures range from 28 to 93 degrees Fahrenheit, and humidity stays at the higher end of the national average. These elements can make lawn care tricky and pest control a necessity.
Most people are uncomfortable when they see a rodent in their home or business, and rightfully so. Rats and mice can damage buildings by chewing through walls and pipes, giving Fort Smith residents an unnecessary headache. They also chew up wires, which can cause fires. Rodents trigger allergies because of their fur and spread diseases with their urine and droppings as well.
Mice and rats invade properties in search of food, shelter and warmth. They can fit through holes in attics, foundations, windows and walls that are only the size of a nickel to a quarter. Some of them crawl through drainage pipes that aren’t sealed. Certain species only infest buildings during the winter, but others are an all-year problem.
Keeping your property clean inside and outside and using airtight containers to store food can help prevent infestations. However, rodents can seek shelter in your property until you seal all entry points. The longer that you wait to deal with the problem, the bigger the infestation will become.
Adams Pest Control provides effective extermination and long-lasting preventative services. Our team can create a customized solution that’s hassle-free, fast and safe.
Mosquitoes are one of the most bothersome backyard pests, ruining the atmosphere of family fun or business events with their blood-sucking behavior. Although they don’t damage property, they spread bacteria and viruses. A single mosquito bite can transmit West Nile Virus, malaria, Zika virus or another disease. Also, various species are active at different times of day, not just in the evening.
Mosquitoes are attracted to stagnant water because that’s where they lay eggs. Birdbaths, ponds, pools, puddles, spongy soil and storm drains are some examples where water can stagnate. Only female mosquitoes bite, and they do so to keep producing eggs. Then, the eggs develop into adults in about two weeks. Because of that, an infestation can grow quickly.
To prevent mosquito bites, some citronella candles and repellent are helpful. However, a mosquito control program is the best way to safeguard your property from an invasion. Adams Pest Control uses an advanced solution to treat the area, focusing on areas where mosquitoes are most likely to feed and breed. Then, we create a barrier around your home or business to kill any other mosquitoes that enter it to mate or lay eggs.
