North Carolina is home to a wide variety of critters that you likely do not want to share living space with. Spiders, fleas, mosquitoes, fire ants, ticks, rodents, bees, ants, raccoons, fleas, opossums, foxes and countless other species crave the warmth and food found in your home or the lush vegetation of your lawn. Kil-Mor Pest Management has been keeping these unwelcome guests out of Triangle and Triad homes since 1980.
The importance of pest management
It may seem like a relatively trivial thing today, but pest control is one of humanity’s most significant victories over nature. Before we learned how to successfully keep rats, bedbugs, fleas, cockroaches and other pests at bay, people were forced to live with them. Outbreaks of major diseases and plagues throughout history are now blamed on this unhygienic living arrangement. With modern methods and a little work, we have the toolkit to keep them outside our homes.
A flea infestation can quickly make one’s home uninhabitable. The itching and bites make sleeping or just relaxing at home difficult. Fleas can be brought in by pets and by other animals as well. It’s important to act quickly when you suspect an outbreak.
Ticks rarely lay eggs inside homes, but they are often brought in after time spent outdoors. They will multiply in yards and especially in wooded areas. The spread of Lyme disease makes the presence of ticks around residences a problem worth resolving ASAP.
The summers in North Carolina often bring swarms of mosquitoes and other flying insects. The most common cause is standing water like ponds, puddles, and even bird baths. Action by pest control experts can greatly reduce their activity to make outdoor living more appealing.
Mice, rats, squirrels, voles, beavers and other rodents can cause a variety of problems for property owners. Many of them carry diseases, some can cause structural damage, and when cornered they may even bite.
Fire Ant Control
These biting insects are not fun to have around. The red fire ants and black fire ants in North Carolina both originated in Brazil, and along with their painful bites, their large mounds can be a nuisance.
