    Where did the Termite Swarmer's Come From?

    Last updated 1 day 10 hours ago

    Termite Swarmer’s likely came from a nearby underground nest. If most of the insects are found outdoors, then the nest is likely somewhere in your yard, possibly near an old tree stump or landscape timbers. If you find most of the swarmer’s indoors, then you quite likely have an infestation under/in your home or business. If you do see swarmer’s in or around your home call BACO toll free at 877.905.BACO.

    Tips for Controlling a Bed Bug Infestation

    Last updated 15 days ago

    While there are worse things that could happen, discovering that you have bed bugs in your home or place of work is highly unpleasant. The faster you contact a bed bug treatment specialist after discovering these bloodsucking critters in your home, the easier it will be to control and exterminate their population.

    After calling a reputable pest control professional, there are a handful of things that you can do while you are waiting for the bed bug exterminators to arrive. These include washing and heat-drying all bedding and clothes that may have been exposed to bed bugs and cleaning up any clutter in your home so that the bed bugs have fewer places to hide.

    Exterminating bed bugs is not a DIY job. If you are looking for efficient, reliable pest control services from an Atlanta company with more than 20 years of experience, call Baco Exterminating at (877) 440-6862.

    Does Your Home Have Termites???

    Last updated 20 days ago

    Although most homeowners are aware of the damage that flooding, fires, and high winds can inflict upon their home, many do not realize that termites can cause structural damage just as severe as that wrought by these other forces of nature. According to the National Pest Management Association, termites cause about $5 billion in property damage every year. Read below to learn how to identify the signs of a termite infestation, and call a pest control expert immediately if you notice any of them.

    Bubbles or Bumps on Painted Wood
    Keep an eye on the walls inside your home, especially the texture of the paint finish. If a painted surface that was initially smooth begins to develop small bubbles or bumps, this may be a sign that termites are burrowing into your walls and chewing through wooden support beams or consuming the paper inside your drywall.

    Hollow Areas in Wooden Beams
    Termites do not like the light or heat, so even if you have exposed wooden beams in your home, you might not see a swarm of the insects on the surface of the wood. The colony will usually tunnel up and devour the wood from within, creating hollow spaces. Knock gently on beams to make sure they are solid. Remember to also check the beams that support your porch and awnings, as termites are agile climbers and can easily reach high places.

    Mud Tubes Filled with Insects – A sure sign!
    Often, homeowners will discover a termite infestation during remodeling or home additions. If you notice a tube of mud filled with many swarming insects, you may have a termite problem. You can distinguish termites from ants because termites have straight antennae and two wings of equal length, whereas ant antennae are curved and their wings are asymmetrical.

    Call Baco Exterminating at (770) 409-8882 if you think you have a termite infestation in your Georgia home; we will do a Free Termite inspection and provide you with a control program to match your budget. Our termite removal experts can eliminate these destructive insects before they cause further damage to your house’s structure .

    Tips for Preventing Carpenter Ant Damage in Your Home

    Last updated 22 days ago

    Carpenter ants are more than just an unwelcome nuisance. Like termites, they have the capacity to wreak havoc on your home’s foundation. Especially fond of humid environments and moist wood, these pests prowl Atlanta neighborhoods looking for ideal nesting environments. By acquainting yourself with the conditions carpenter ants are drawn to, you can reduce the likelihood that your home will be a target. Before the weather starts really heating up, take the following pest prevention precautions in and around your home.

    Examine Your Home’s Foundation for Cracks and Crevices

    Scour your home’s floors, walls, and ceilings looking for cracks and crevices through which carpenter ants may enter, sealing or caulking any gaps that you find. Since many other pests are also capable of squeezing through spaces no greater than a centimeter in diameter, sealing up cracks and crevices in your home’s foundation is something you should do regularly.

    Attend to Leaks and Plumbing Problems

    Since carpenter ants are especially attracted to moist wood, repairing any roof leaks or plumbing problems that arise in your home immediately can help to keep them away. In preventing minor problems from becoming major ones and keeping repair costs down, the benefits of this practice extend beyond preventing a carpenter ant infestation.

    Store Firewood Up High

    Where firewood is concerned, the same rules that apply to termites stand for carpenter ants. Store wood outside of your home, but keep the wood high off the ground. Closely examine every piece for signs of carpenter ant or termite presence before bringing wood inside.

    While this advice will make your home less susceptible to infestation by carpenter ants, it will not altogether eliminate the risk. Should you discover or suspect that carpenter ants are nesting in the walls of your Atlanta home, contact a pest control professional as soon as possible. For a free consultation with Atlanta’s premier carpenter ant, termite, and bed bug exterminator, call Baco Exterminating at (877) 440-6862.
