  • Fire ants - These dangerous ants are extremely aggressive and will not hesitate to bite and sting people and animals. They are very invasive and difficult to eliminate.

  • Rover ants - These nuisance ants originated from Argentina. They tend to invade properties in massive numbers and can be difficult to control.

  • Tawny crazy ants - These ants are most commonly identified by the zig-zag pattern in which they move. They bite and can cause structural issues by damaging electrical equipment.

  • Carpenter ants - These wood-destroying ants typically nest outside but will move inside while foraging for food and water. Once inside, they can create satellite nests in moist or water-damaged wood. If they are not dealt with, the tunnels and nests carpenter ants create can cause significant structural damage.

Protect Your Spring, TX Property From Termites

Termites are a serious threat to properties in Spring. When swarmers take to the air and look for a place to start a new colony, your goal should be to make your property as uninviting as possible. Here are some tips:

  • Remove piles of brush, fallen trees or tree limbs, and piles of leaves or grass from your property. These piles may attract termites.

  • Termites are drawn to moisture. Eliminate excess moisture by ensuring that gutters are unclogged and are channeling rainwater away from the exterior of your home.

  • Termites are attracted to water damaged wood. Remove any water damaged wood from your home and replace timbers with sound wood. Termites are attracted to water damaged wood.

  • Find leaks and cracks that are difficult to see. Repair leaky pipes and faucets. Seal any cracks in your home’s foundation to help prevent termites from gaining access to your home.

The Truth About House Flies In Your Spring Home

House flies are annoying. We don't have to tell you that. But, are you aware that houseflies are implicated in the spread of more than 65 diseases? These are dirty insects that breed in trash receptacles, dumpsters, and other dirty places. Here are a few ways you may be able to keep flies out of your Spring home:

  • Move trash receptacles away from exterior doors to reduce the risk that flies will zip right in when you open the door.

  • Keep trash receptacles clean to reduce odors that attract flies and increase fly populations.

  • Keep on top of pet waste clean up.

  • Replace white lights with yellow lights near exterior doors. Yellow light is not perceptible to insects.

  • Repair window and door screens and make sure screen frames are properly sealed.

Sanitation and exclusions can give you a high level of protection from house flies. These insects mostly reproduce in exterior locations and must enter through your exterior to get into your home.

Mosquitoes & Dangerous Disease: What Spring Residents Ought To Know

It is no fun to have to deal with mosquitoes in your yard. They can completely ruin outdoor activities. But mosquitoes are more than just annoying pests. They have the ability to transmit West Nile virus, EEE, Zika virus, malaria, dengue fever, and many other diseases.

Fortunately, the deadliest mosquito-borne viruses are not endemic to the United States, and mosquitoes are mostly a low-level threat. While this is the case, it is still a great idea to have year-round mosquito control. Routine treatments will not only make your yard a nicer place to spend time, but you'll also have proactive protection from outbreaks and ongoing protection from endemic mosquito-borne diseases like West Nile virus.

Why Are There Silverfish In My Spring Home?

Silverfish aren't a threat to health but they can damage property. They're known to eat wallpaper, documents, envelopes, books, pictures, clothing, and more. When you see a silverfish in your home, you might wonder why it is there. How did that silverfish know that you have these food sources in your home? It didn't. Silverfish get inside by accident. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Silverfish are attracted to a moist perimeter. A clogged gutter can result in perimeter saturation that will invite silverfish activity.

  • Silverfish crawl around in wood piles. If you have scrap wood, campfire wood, branches, or some other wood source, these may have invited silverfish to be near your home.

  • Silverfish crawl around under leaf litter and leaf piles where there is moisture and food options.

When you alter conditions around your home that attract silverfish, you reduce silverfish activity. Combine this with exclusions and you may have no more issues with silverfish. It can be difficult to stay on top of yard work, or to find the time or money to deal with clogged gutters.

If you're not able to address conditions that attract silverfish and other pests, year-round pest control may be the answer. If you're in Spring, Texas, the service team here at Modern Pest Control can guide you toward the right pest control plan for you.

What You Need To Know About Spiders In Spring

Most spiders are just scary looking; they don't bite, or their bites are minor. Some spiders have a bite that feels like a pinprick or a bee sting. Only two spiders in Spring are considered to be medically important. They are widow spiders and recluse spiders. Widow spiders, both black and brown, have potent venom that could have you running to the hospital, but in most cases, their bites are not severe.

Recluse spiders, like the Texas recluse and Big Bend recluse, have a venom that can cause necrosis. Fortunately, a bite from a recluse spider is only likely to result in an isolated ulcer at the center of the wound. We do, however, recommend that you have a physician monitor recluse bites - just in case.

Spiders can be kept out of your Spring home if you reduce moisture, remove webs, control food sources, and apply exclusions. Dangerous spiders create webs in low areas. These webs look like a tangled mess. Keep this in mind as you work to routinely remove webs.

If you'd like assistance with spider control and general pest control, ask us about Modern Plus, Signature, and Signature Plus pest control.
