Greater Houston, TX Pest Control

What's New In Houston?

When the sun is shining, Texans like to head outside. Those dog days of summer aren’t enough to keep us from enjoying a hike, a barbeque, or a swim, and as fall and winter months bring cooler temperatures, we grab a sweatshirt and head outdoors. However, with this cooler weather comes the onset of one of our least favorite buzzing pests: the mosquito. These insects come with a host annoying qualities, the worst of which are the diseases they transfer to humans.

In recent events, mosquitoes have been linked to two confirmed cases of the Zika virus to nearby Williamson County. They have also caused a resurgence of the Keystone virus in Florida, putting residents along the Gulf of Mexico at risk. In response to these mosquito threats, Harris county researchers have begun development on a number of environmentally-friendly initiatives to combat the mosquito threat including the breeding of carnivorous plants and natural predators that prey on mosquitoes.

In other pest news, a number of Houston-area restaurants have found cockroaches living inside the walls of their establishments, putting customers at risk of a number of adverse health effects.  This reminds us all that homes are far from the only target that summer pests are willing to invade.

If you haven’t taken the time to protect yourself against the various threats that thrive in the summertime, there’s no better time than now to get started. Regardless of the pest, if you’re looking for a Pest Control Service in Houston, TX, Modern pest is here to help.

Why Pest Control Is Essential In Houston

The city of Houston, Texas is famous for many things: as a global city, Houston is best-known as a worldwide leader in the healthcare and oil industries, but the city also has strong ties to energy, manufacturing, transportation, and entertainment.

Houston is perhaps best known for scientific pursuits, especially in the fields of healthcare and aeronautics. Beyond the University of Houston, it also serves as the home of both the Texas Medical Center and the Johnson Space Center (more famously known as “Mission Control” for NASA flights).

Houston is also a cultural hub, with attractions including the Museum District and Theater District as well as numerous sports venues including NRG Stadium, the Toyota Center, and Minute Maid Park. The city has played host to three Super Bowls, four NBA Finals, and two World Series Championships (along with various other sporting events), and Houston’s location near the Gulf of Mexico makes a crossroads for people of various cultures and backgrounds - ensuring that no matter who you are or where your interests lie, there’s no shortage of things to do and places to see.

Houston, We Have A Pest Problem

While Houston offers diverse opportunities and activities for its proud residents, the city is not immune from crude critters trying to ruin a good time. Many invasive insects, rodents, and other pests thrive in hot, humid conditions, which unfortunately means that Houston’s climate and geographic location make it a perfect breeding ground.

Whether you’re looking for mosquito extermination, termite control, ant elimination, or solutions to your rodent infestation problems, Modern Pest Control’s team of professionals is here to help.  

If you’re a Houston resident or business owner plagued with uninvited pests,  Modern Pest Control’s team of highly-trained and certified technicians offer solutions for Houston’s pest management needs. We will help you take back your property and keep it pest-free for good.

Our Pest Control Process

Pest prevention and exclusion treatment through Modern Pest Control follows three basic steps: Inspection, Treatment, and Follow-Up.

Inspection: After contacting us to schedule a consultation, one of our licensed and certified pest control technicians will visit your home or business to perform a thorough inspection of the entire property, identify any signs of pest presence or damage, and provide a quote for service depending on the severity of infestation.

Treatment: With your pest problem identified, your technician will work with you and your schedule to develop a treatment plan. Employing the latest tools and techniques, he or she will use a combination of industry-leading methods to completely eliminate any pest presence.

Follow-Up: Two weeks after treatment, your pest control technician will return to your property for a re-inspection to ensure that you no longer have a pest infestation and provide recommendations to ensure that your property is protected in the future. If your problem continues, your technician will continue to survey, plan, and implement pest control practices until your problem disappears.

Our professionals at Modern Pest benefit from training through the Texas Department of Agriculture to ensure that you receive only the best, safest service possible. Our management staff is also trained by the Food Industry Sanitation Auditors (FISA) as well as the American Institute of Baking (AIB), qualifying us to solve pest issues in food handling areas.

QualityPro is a dynamic program that certifies companies based on comprehensive standards.

While the state of Texas recognizes several breeds of termites living across in the area, Greater Houston residents are primarily plagued by subterranean termites. Mud tube tunneling and other wood damage cost millions in repairs each year, putting more homes and businesses at risk as temperatures rise.

Part of the problem comes from how difficult termite damage is to find and identify for most homeowners. Because so much of it goes on inside the walls, floors, and foundations of the home, residents often don’t become aware that the problem even exists until hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of damage has already taken place.

Worse, while termites are most active in the spring and summer, damage can occur at any time of year, especially in areas like Houston where conditions are favorable to termites most of the year - making total prevention the only option.

Learn more about the damage and other dangers termites can pose to Houston homes and businesses.


Ants are an ever-present nuisance in Houston yards and sidewalks on any summer day. While their bites can be painful, other health hazards including allergies and food contamination make them a pest that can’t be tolerated. The key ants Houston residents should be on the lookout for include:

Tawny Crazy Ants

Distinguishable for their erratic behavior, these reddish-brown ants move in zig-zag patterns as they forage. Tawny ants carry painful bites for anyone who gets in their way but are a particular nuisance for their tendency to infest and damage electrical equipment. And once they’re inside, they spread - like crazy.

Carpenter Ants

While carpenter ants do not eat the wood in the same way termites do, they can cause the same level of severe damage to any wood-based structures or furniture they come across.

Fire Ants

Notable for their red coloration, fire ants are distinct from other ants in that they sting instead of bite. These stings are quite painful - in addition to being a trigger for a number of other reactions in certain people.

Rover Ants

While non-aggressive, rover ants nevertheless pose a threat to any food items they forage upon. And as their name implies, they are quite skilled at it.


Mosquitoes are among the most dangerous animals on earth, killing their victims indirectly through the various diseases it carries: Zika, West Nile, Yellow Fever, and more can all be traced to mosquito bites.

Mosquitoes spend much of their young lives underwater as they mature from eggs into full-grown adults. Unfortunately, this means that they thrive in hot, humid environments with lots of abundant sources of stagnant water and tall grass to hide in, conditions prevalent in many areas across the state of Texas.

While their threat in Houston is not as drastic as in some parts of the world, the climate makes it a perfect breeding ground in the spring and summer months - and once you’ve got a mosquito infestation, it can be exceptionally difficult to eliminate with professional help. Learn more about the threat mosquitoes pose.


If you see a rodent in Houston, chances are it’s a mouse, Norway rat, Roof rat, or squirrel. Rodents are an ever-present pest in Houston. Find out how to keep yourself protected.


Squirrels are a common sight to many Houston residents, and a welcome one - except for those who have to live with them. Squirrels bring all of the same risks for gnawing and electrical damage as their rodent cousins, but they are often far more capable of getting to the roof in the first place.

Roof Rats

Smaller and leaner than their Norway rat cousins, roof rats live up to their name with their excellent climbing skill. Once a roof rat is on the roof, it means non-stop gnawing to get into the attic, and all the holes left behind can lead to water damage or even other pests to gain entry.


While their small, beady eyes may make them look cute, the damage they cause is anything but. Beyond persistent gnawing to wear down their incisors and the other biological hazards they leave behind, mice cannot be allowed into a home or business.

Norway Rats

With stocky, dark bodies, Norway rats make better swimmers than climbers - and utilize their ability to access all manner of plumbing and other sensitive areas.
