Termite Control: Inspection and Treatment of These Silent Home Invaders

A typical pest found in houses throughout Kansas City during the spring and summer months are termites. These pests, like many others, can be quite annoying but most importantly extremely destructive to your home. If left untreated, termites can wreak havoc on your property and cause significant damage in as little as 6 months. They are frequently confused with carpenter ants which can also be a serious problem. Spotting a few of these pests around your house is normal, but if you notice big swarms of either, help from professional termite control exterminators should be sought.

Once signs of a serious termite infestation are recognized, it’s best to hire professionals to assist. Augustine’s team of professional and experienced termite exterminators can help evaluate the situation and determine if a problem exists to provide the best treatment option available.

Beetles and Moths

One of the blessings of winter in Kansas City is that we think there are very few pests to deal with, right? Wrong!

You ask yourself…. what are these little reddish-brown bugs crawling around on the rolled up bag of flour in the pantry? And what were those little moth-things in that box of granola that I had to throw out yesterday? In fact, they are very common pantry pests. The little reddish brown things are either flour beetles or saw-toothed grain beetles. Most likely, those little moths are Indian meal moths – the number one pantry pest in the country.
