I keep spraying the ants but they keep coming back. Why won’t they go away?
Ants can be resilient creatures. Chances are, either they are resistant to the toxins in your ant spray, or they are re-routing themselves around the bait to continue pillaging your home. The best way to get rid of your ant problem is through professionally placed baits, which the ants carry back to their nest and eliminate the colony.
I can’t tell whether my wood has water or termite damage.
The easiest way to identify the type of damage your wood has sustained is by looking closely at the behavior of the wood itself. Water damaged wood swells when wet and contract when dry or drying. Termites eat wood, therefore leaving empty areas where the wood use to be. Sometimes the area where the wood had been will become filled with soil/dirt, this is a good sign of active or previous Termite infestation.
Can I stay in my home while you treat for the pests?
Depending on the nature of your pest problem, you are most likely going to be able to remain home. Attic invaders, ants, backyard pest problems – these are all situations in which it’s perfectly safe for you to stay home.
