Ultrasonic Pest Deterrent
Electronic pest management is a popular solution in the City of Amarillo area to deter a broad range of insects and small critters like mice and squirrels. Also known as ultrasonic pest regulation, this method uses devices that emit high-frequency ultrasonic sound waves to pests. The sound waves emitted by the devices are above the range that humans can hear. While cats and dogs can hear the sound, they don't seem bothered by the noise, making this a pet friendly addition to your plan.
This type of pest control in Lubbock is not 100% effective. It should still be combined with trapping as the sound waves can send insects and rodents scurrying into the traps. Many animals like rodents will also become used to the sound over time so the effect will diminish.
Pest control Services in Amarillo and surrounding areas sometimes involves mechanical methods to physically trap or kill the insects or animals. This solution can be a fast, easy fix for squirrels, rats, and other creatures. It also works well for small-scale insect infestations in one area of your home or property. While it can work to solve bees that have made a hive on your property, it won't treat a widespread insect problem.
Pesticides are popular as an insect treatment in residential pest elimination and prevention. These chemicals can be applied around your house to create a barrier that deters insects like bed bugs from coming inside. They can also be used to inhibit or kill existing insects in your home. Pesticides are also used in commercial pest control in Amarillo and elsewhere in the Lubbock area.
Pesticide pest control in Amarillo should be customized to your needs after identifying problem areas in your home. Pesticides should also be part of an integrated pest management plan that combines prevention, monitoring, and treatment. An experienced residential pest management exterminator will always use the least toxic pesticides necessary to correct the problem. With spiders, for example, organic chemicals can be very effective while a bed bug infestation requires a more serious approach.
If indoor pest regulation methods are used, make sure you find out how toxic the pesticides are and where they will be applied. Indoor extermination is a major concern if you have children or pets who may be inadvertently poisoned while treating a flea and tick problem.
Bed Bugs and How to kill Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are a common and troublesome issue in many areas of Texas. After decades of virtually disappearing from memory, these parasitic insects have made a comeback, in large part due to increased travel. Anyone can develop a bed bug problem, including homes and commercial properties.
The best solution for a bed bug infestation is customized to your needs after a thorough inspection of your home or business. All visible bugs will be removed and the area will be treated to eliminate hidden bugs and eggs. Depending on whether you need residential or commercial pest treatment, there are two primary options. You can rely on your local Pest Control Services Amarillo experts to help you choose the right strategy.
The first solution to kill bed bugs is a whole house heat treatment which uses professional equipment that raises the temperature of the home to kill bugs and eggs. These parasitic Bed Bugs and their eggs will die immediately at 122 degrees Fahrenheit or within about 90 minutes at 118 degrees Fahrenheit. The air in your commercial property or home will reach up to 145 degrees during the treatment, which takes up to eight hours.
Insecticides can also be used to control bed bugs and prevent their return. There are several brands that may be effective, including dust insecticides for crevices like electrical outlets, residual treatments for the undersides of surfaces and cracks, and a fast-acting contact insecticide.

Termite Treatment and Prevention Amarillo
Every year, U.S. homes sustain about $1.5 billion in termite damage. These wood-eating insects are incredibly small but a colony can have up to 1 million insects that cause extensive damage to your home over time. Because the insects hide in the walls, the damage is usually extensive by the time it's noticed.
If you have an active termite infestation, prompt treatment is necessary. A spot treatment with termiticide may be effective if the infestation is isolated. A larger infestation of drywood termites, which live inside the wood instead of the ground, may require fumigation of the entire home.
The best way to control termites is preventing them from getting into your Amarillo home in the first place. Preventative pest control in Mission and surrounding communities involves a multi-stage approach that may include:
Pet Friendly and Child Friendly Chemicals
Some rodent and insect control methods use dangerous chemicals that can pose a risk to children and pets. We are committed to using the least toxic chemical for pest control in Amarillo and surrounding areas. Otherwise, a curious child or pet could be poisoned in an attempt to rid your home of a problem.
There are many examples of eco-friendly and generally nontoxic chemicals that can be used. Boric acid is commonly used to kill ants and cockroaches without harming pets. Boric acid powder is a natural chemical that is unlikely to cause illness if ingested in small amounts. This chemical kills insects by poisoning them and affecting their metabolism. We can also use products like Essentria IC3 which uses child friendly chemicals found in plants that affect neurotransmitters in insects and other types of invertebrates.
