Are you still scrambling to find that gift for someone who has everything? It’s hard to buy for certain people. You don’t know what they want, what they like, or what size they wear. But there’s one thing everyone can agree on, and that’s keeping pests out of your home.
At Cramer Pest Control we have a wide range of pest control designed to rid your loved ones of any pest problems they might have. From bed bugs to spiders, the pros at Cramer will evict those unwanted guests and make sure they never want to crawl back.
We all hate having bugs in our home. They’re creepy, they’re gross, some of them bite, but of all the pests we deal with termites are the most destructive. These destructive pests are found in almost every yard in the United States and cause five billion dollars in damage each year.
Termites are active year round and live secretive lives burrowed deep in your walls and floors where they can go undetected for years. Termites are often incorrectly identified as ants which is why it’s vital that you have a professional come out and assess the situation before it gets out of control.
So how do you tell if you have termites?
The best way to tell if you have termites is to look for evidence.
- Discolored or drooping drywall
- Peeling paint
- Hollow sounding wood
- Tiny holes in the drywall
- Buckling wooden or laminate floorboards
- Excessively squeaky floorboards
- Crumbling wood
Floors – Termites not only destroy wooden floors but are also known to damage laminate flooring by burrowing in the sub-floor. If your floors feel soft, saggy, spongy, then check under the laminate for termite activity.
Walls – Check for new cracks or small pinpoint holes in your walls.
Ceiling – Beams in your ceiling, drywall, and rafters are all great places for termites to build their colony. Damaged shingles, broken attic windows or vents are easy access points for termites and you may not even know about it until it’s too late.
Foundations – I know what you’re thinking, “Termites don’t eat concrete.” Correct, but they are able to squeeze through cracks within cinder blocks. Termites are also great engineers. Termites living in the ground outside your home can build a dirt tunnel along the concrete foundation leading from their colony to your home.
So what’s the best way to get rid of them?
With our program we will eliminate termites in your home and to make sure they stay out we offer a one year warranty.
So if someone you know is suffering from a termite problem and they don’t know where to turn, give them the gift of termite relief from Cramer Pest Control. Don’t wait until it’s too late, contact us today.
Bed bugs are a troublesome household pest. They’re small, hard to find, and can expose you and your family to health risks.
How do you know if you have bed bugs?
Usually, when people realize they have a bed bug problem, they notice small red bumps on their bodies. The next thing you should do is search your sheets for signs of bed bugs: discarded shells, fecal matter, blood stains.
Once you have determined you have bed bugs, it is time to take action. Be forewarned, getting rid of bed bugs is no easy task. Just one female can produce an infestation in a very short time, so it’s important to act quickly when you see the signs.
How do you get rid of bed bugs?
Getting rid of bed bugs is a monumental chore that involves stripping EVERYTHING out of your room.
- Get rid of your furniture, every stick of furniture is compromised and needs to be cleaned or thrown out.
- Strip down all sheets and clothing and put them in a sealed plastic bag to prevent bed bugs from spreading.
- Wash and dry with high heat. Bed bugs hate too much heat.
- Place washed/dried clothes in sealed bags so they don’t get contaminated again.
- Put plastic covers on your mattress and pillows.
And even all of that may not be enough. Leaving just a couple eggs behind can lead to another infestation.
Bed bugs can hitch a ride on anything so if you are throwing out furniture make sure it is placed far from your house. Bed bugs are great hitchhikers and can be brought back into the house by you getting the mail or a curious pet.
It is much easier and more effective to call a professional if you have an infestation. Our special heat treatment will heat your home to 135 degrees, turning it into a virtual hellscape for bedbugs. The heat will kill all the bed bugs, no matter how well they hide. Not only will it kill the adults but it will also kill eggs, preventing a re-infestation. This treatment only needs to be done once making it the perfect gift from someone who has had a hard time-fighting bed bugs.
I think everyone can agree that mosquitos are the most annoying insect around. They bite, they buzz in your ear, and they are persistent. You can light citronella candles, spray repellents, and wear dark clothes. But mosquitos were made to find blood, and there is no 100% effective way to repel or hide from them.
The best way to eliminate them is to take away their breeding grounds. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water that can form virtually anywhere after a rainstorm and within days you have a new swarm to deal with.
At Cramer, we offer a monthly service where we spray certain areas of your yard where mosquitos are known to hide and breed. And this method will bring the mosquito population way down. And for added protection, we will install an automatic spray system to get any others that have survived.
