8: Looking to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants in Cape Coral?

Looking to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants in Cape Coral?

This is the eighth installment of 15 Household Bugs in SW Florida That May Freak You Out, which can be downloaded from our free eBook library.

If you have large, reddish brown ants in your home, you might have carpenter ants. These ants are often half an inch long and have chunky body parts. Their size can be intimidating and even a little freaky. Many carpenter ants are wingless, but large colonies do have ants with wings.

As their name implies, carpenter ants love wood. Unlike termites however, the Florida carpenter ant will not eat the wood in your home. Unfortunately, they love to nest in your attic and in wall voids.

In most cases, carpenter ants have a main nest outside your home in a nearby tree or stump. However, given enough time, they may establish a secondary nest inside your home. Carpenter ants prefer wood that is rotting or wet. If the wood in your house is not water damaged, you are less likely to have a problem with these ants. With proper home maintenance (fixing leaky plumbing and keeping wood painted and sealed), you will reduce your chances of an infestation.

Homeowners have a very difficult time fixing carpenter ant problems on their own because the primary nest can be hard to find. Often, you need a Cape Coral pest control professional that is knowledgeable about carpenter ant habitats and preferences to help to get rid of them permanently.

We do find it helpful when homeowners keep a careful eye on their carpenter ants before calling us. Keep notes on things like:

Ever heard the saying, “The dose makes the poison”?

This saying came from a 1550’s Swiss chemist known as “Paracelsus”.

How to Kill Bed Bugs

Posted by Keith Ruebeling On July 8th

The great philosopher Aristotle once said, “We make war that we may live in peace.”

Blood Sucking Bed Bug

Here’s my sixth post in a series called “Bed Bugs: 12 Tips to Help You Sleep Easy.”  It’s also available as a free eBook on our Web Site at: www.LaruePest.com.

It is obvious he was referring to bed bugs.

Now, if you want to defeat your bed bug infestation, you need to understand the bed bug.

Then, and only then will you know how to kill bed bugs.

The enemy is a small, elusive and parasitic insect which belongs to the family Cimicidae. This is not the kind of family that will invite you for a hearty Thanksgiving meal when you have no place to go. Oh, they will invite you, but only so you’ll be their meal.

Here’s my fifth post in a series called “Bed Bugs: 12 Tips to Help You Sleep Easy.”  It’s also available as a free eBook on our Web Site at: www.LaruePest.com.

But, the fact of the matter is that beds are the most reliable place for bed bugs to hang out because that’s where their food sleeps for 8 hours a night (well, more like 6.5 these days…that’s another issue).

So, while you’re getting your sleep, those bed bugs are making your mattress a bed bug mattress. A single intricate bed frame or mattress can hold a wealth of choice areas for bed bugs to hide so careful, meticulous inspection is a must.
