Ants are not only annoying they can also be very destructive to your home and property. This is the case with Carpenter Ants. Sometimes the winged male and female are confused with Termite swarmers. The damage caused by Carpenter Ants is as troubling and destructive as Termites. While Termites will feed on the wood, the Carpenter Ants use it as a place to nest. Carpenter Ant colonies can contain 15,000 to 20,000 individuals. Other species of ants usually number 3,000 to 4,000. Just imagine 20,000 Carpenter Ants chomping away at your deck, porch, garage or home! A Bug Man can diagnose and treat these harmful home invaders and put your mind at ease.
Spiders can be very helpful in gardens by keeping the smaller pest under control, but not many people want them in their living space, especially if they are venomous. In Missouri we have two venomous spiders and the Brown Recluse is one of them. According to the University of Missouri, one study showed the recluse was found in 70 percent of the homes sampled. This spider can cause a very painful bite followed by a blister. As the tissue dies the wound becomes a sunken ulcer. The healing process is slow and can take 6 to 8 weeks. Knowing these guys are very present in Missouri, it would bring peace of mind to your family to have A Bug Man out for regular inspections.
