Bed bugs are often found in our own beds. This insidious pest likes to travel, hitching rides in luggage and on clothes to make their way into your home. They like to feast on the blood of their human hosts while they sleep and can spread infection and disease. Bed bugs are almost impossible to get rid of without the help of an experienced professional, so if you find yourself waking up with itchy red bumps or notice tiny crawling specs on your sheets or pillows call Mission Exterminating right away.
Roaches like to conduct their business in darkness; that is why, unfortunately, when you spot one roach you probably have hundreds or thousands more hiding in your walls, floorboards, and furniture. Roaches spread diseases, and their leavings can pose a serious health risk for people with breathing problems or those who are immune-compromised. Notorious for their survival skills, a roach infestation must be handled with a strong response right away in order to ascertain that they are eradicated for good.
A termite infestation will literally eat you out of house and home. Despite their small size, termites can cause serious structural damage to your home or lawn in less time than you’d think. If you notice signs of termite damage—such as wood that sounds hollow when tapped or wood that looks rotted or is falling apart—contact the professional termite control experts at Mission Exterminating.
Rodents, such as rats and mice, love commercial buildings and kitchens alike—easy access to food, as well as plenty of places to hide. They will chew through walls and even electrical wires, which can cause fires. They carry diseases that can contaminate your countertops and your food. Rats and mice reproduce quickly making it likely that if you see one then there are more lurking behind your walls. Mission Exterminating is licensed to provide rodent proofing services for your home or business.
Ant colonies can grow into the tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands. That is a lot of mouths to feed, which is why ants love to raid our homes for food. Like termites, carpenter ants can cause structural damage to your home. Other species of ants can spread disease by contaminating the food in your home. Because there are so many different species of ants on Long Island alone, traditional DIY methods of ant control are often ineffective and can even be dangerous to children or pets. Contact a licensed professional to rid yourself of an ant infestation.
The sounds of crickets can be peaceful...when they are outside. Crickets inside your home, however, are another story. These pests like to hang out in damp basements across Long Island and can be a serious nuisance. If you are experiencing a cricket infestation in your home call a professional to rid your home of these hopping pests.
Bees are good for the environment, but they belong outside and away from people. A colony of bees can grow quite large and pose a threat to people and pets when they feel like their territory is threatened. There are many different species of bees; identification is key to knowing how to remove them safely. Africanized honey bees are more aggressive and dangerous than the average honey bee and are growing in population in many parts of the US. You should never try to get rid of bees on your own. In fact, in some areas it is illegal to do so. If you have a bee colony that is uncomfortably close to your home contact the bee removal experts at Mission Exterminating and be bee free.
It’s hard to think of one good thing to say about mosquitoes. They can turn your backyard paradise into a nightmare. With diseases like West Nile and Zika spreading throughout the country these pests are not only annoying, they’re also dangerous. Able to reproduce in as little as an inch of standing water, it is difficult to keep them at bay. Regular professional spraying for mosquitoes can help keep your yard free of these flying bloodsucking pests all summer.
These tiny little pests have been credited for wiping out most of Europe and can find their way into even the cleanest of houses. Fleas spread disease and discomfort wherever they go. Designed to hop from host to host, they can jump higher than 80 times their own height and once they have fed they can breed quickly. Even if you regularly use preventative flea treatments on your pets, fleas can invade your home on the backs of other pests or can be a sign of a rodent infestation. They can live a long time in carpet and other parts of your home; so even if you’ve treated your pets, fleas can be lying in wait to launch another assault on your family. If you have noticed fleas on your pet or in your home contact Mission Exterminating to get rid of them for good.
Ticks are very prevalent on Long Island and are known to carry life-threatening diseases such as Lyme Disease. They like to hang out in tall grass and brush waiting to catch a ride (and a meal) on an unsuspecting animal or person that just happens to pass by. It is important to check your pets and children for ticks after they come in from playing outside. Because these creatures are so resilient and suited to the elements regular tick spraying is required. Mission Exterminating can keep tick populations down in your yard and around your home.
