You can rest assured knowing that if you see pests in your Celina home between our scheduled visits, we will return to your property and retreat at no additional cost to you.  

After an initial interior treatment, our Perimeter Pest Control Plan focuses on the exterior of your home and protects against common Texas pests including spiders, wasps, ants, beetles, and others. It’s designed under the philosophy that attractants outside of your home bring pests onto your property, and they make their way inside through entry points.

Our Home Guardian Pest & Termite Control Plan offers all the benefits provided through our Perimeter Plan, plus termite monitoring. Using the proven Sentricon® System with Always Active™, you can rest easy knowing that your assets are protected from termites. This plan also comes with a termite warranty.  

Our Home Guardian + Pest & Termite Control + Mosquito Plan is our most comprehensive pest control option. It offers protection against common area pests, a pest-free guarantee, exterior fire ant control, spider web removal, stinging insect control, termite monitoring with Sentricon® System with Always Active™, a termite warranty, plus seasonal mosquito control.

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Pest Control 

What’s included in your free inspection?

Our no-obligation, free inspection serves as a way for us to know exactly what pest problems you’re dealing with.  A licensed pest technician will come to your property and survey the interior and exterior of your home looking for pest activity, nests, entry points, and pest damage. From there, he will come up with a plan to eliminate pests and keep them away for good. You will also learn more about our easy-to-use scheduling process if you choose to move forward with our services.  

Are your residential pest control plans customizable?

Of course. All homes and all pest problems are different. Therefore, a licensed technician will conduct your free inspection to come up with a plan that’s unique to your home and your pest problem.  

Do you offer termite control?  

Yes, we offer termite control options that prevent future termite problems or tackle current ones. We proudly use the proven Sentricon® System with Always Active™ baiting system to effectively eliminate or deter termites from your Celina property. We can implement this system as a standalone service or as part of a recurring service plan that tackles other unwanted pests as well.  

Do you offer mosquito control services?  

Yes. We offer seasonal mosquito control that uses state-of-the-art backpack misting, In2Care mosquito traps, or both depending on the level of coverage you’re looking for. We recommend mosquito treatment once a month during peak seasons, but we also offer single treatments if you’re looking to reduce the population on your property for a special event.


Adams knows his business, I'm so grateful I found you. Your crew takes the time to educate me each time you come out. Your guys don't just rush through the job, they probe me for problems I might take for granted. I feel like they're a part of my family. I love Adams Exterminating Company. - Nora Martinez, Review from Facebook 

I have used Adam's for many years now and have always had the same tech.  He always did a great job and he recently retired, so I was a bit concerned about the new tech assigned to me. But I must say, he has reset the standard for service and quality.  As always, great job Adams!  - Sean Northcutt, Review from Facebook 

Adams is the best exterminating company. The office people are friendly and very accommodating. If you ever have a problem, they will come back and take care of it, no charge. I would never change companies, and I highly recommend them to everyone. Thanks, Adams! - Debbie Hentze Ferraro, Review from Facebook  

Adams is honest in what they say they do.  They cover a variety of pests that affect the home.  They are not about poisoning everything, just protecting the house. Everyone is knowledgeable beyond just knowing how to squirt liquid on the foundation and knock down a wasp’s nest.  Most importantly, when we have contacted them, they actually answer the phone, emails, etc. They are just nice people all around.  We tested another company that promised to address a couple of yard-based concerns and have had several other companies trying door to door.  No one compares. - Josh S.D., Review from Yelp 

We have used Adams for several years, and the customer service we have received is amazing!  Their knowledge of the business is great, and they're a pleasure to work with.  Our service tech is an exceptional employee for Adams.  We don't know if they appreciate the assets they have. Nina and Dale Winfrey, Review from Yelp

Effective Mosquito Control For Your Celina Property

As days get warmer, the buzzing of mosquitoes is an unwelcome sound for all Celina residents. Hyper-focused females constantly search for their next blood meal, and if they find the right moment to strike, they leave itchy red welts behind on their victims.

Mosquitoes are small, flying insects with dangling legs, a narrow waist, and a proboscis that they use to feed. Unlike males who only eat nectar, females require blood meals to lay their eggs.  


Aside from the annoying bites associated with these pests, they also carry a variety of unsavory diseases. Despite their small size, they are known as one of the most dangerous animals on the planet because of their ability to spread illness to those they bite. Mosquitoes are known vectors for malaria, West Nile virus, dengue fever, Zika virus, and eastern equine encephalitis. Though these diseases are less common in the United States than in other parts of the world, they still exist.  


Due to the harm that can come with a mosquito bite, it’s important to do everything you can to protect yourself and reduce the population on your property. There are some DIY methods for mosquito control that are helpful. Mainly, they involve reducing areas of standing water around your property as mosquitoes need still water to lay their eggs. After a rainfall, check buckets, playground equipment, tarps, birdbaths, gutters, or other areas that collect water. To protect yourself, spray CDC approved repellants on your clothing and wear light-colored, long-sleeved shirts and pants.  

Despite everything you do to keep mosquitoes away from you and off of your property, you still may have an abundant population. Fortunately, the experts at Adams Exterminating Company can help. We target both resting and breeding areas. Using backpack misters and In2Care mosquito traps, we can greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard allowing you to enjoy the outdoors again without worrying about the ramifications associated with your next mosquito bite. We offer recurring or one-time mosquito control, depending on your needs. Reach out to our experts today to discuss our mosquito control options.  

Tips For Keeping House Mice Out Of Your Celina Home

Unfortunately, at some point, you will have to deal with house mice in your Celina home. These rodents come into your house searching for food, water, and shelter, and once inside, they will establish a nest and begin reproducing at an astonishing rate leaving you with a house mouse problem that, if left unchecked, becomes out of control.

a little house mouse in the pantry


House mice are small, dusty grey rodents with a cream underbelly. Their bodies range in size from 2 ½ to 3 ¾ inches long with a tail of equal length.   


House mice are prolific breeders.  One female can produce up to 35 young annually meaning that a couple of mice in your home will get out of hand in a hurry. As mice increase in numbers, so does their propensity to cause damage. Mice chew constantly to file down their ever-growing incisors. They will eat through cardboard, drywall, and electrical wiring leaving you with costly damages.  

Aside from destruction to your home, they also leave behind droppings and spread bacteria that threaten the health and wellbeing of those living in your home.  House mice are known to spread salmonellosis, rat bite fever, hantavirus, and other harmful health threats. Furthermore, their droppings and urine can result in mold and mildew issues leading to asthma and other allergies.  


The best way to keep mice out of your home is to exercise some logical preventative measures to the exterior and interior of your house.  

  • Check for openings around doors and windows. Repair damaged screens and install door sweeps.  

  • Check your chimney and vents. Install screens to prevent access to the interior of your home.  

  • Inspect the exterior of your home. Use caulking and steel wool to prevent pest access through gaps around utilities.  

  • Store firewood away from the foundation of your home.  

  • Inside your home, store food in airtight, sealed containers.  

  • Clean up food and crumbs from the countertops and floors after eating.  Be sure to also pick up pet food dishes.  

  • Look for moisture problems, and fix leaking pipes and windows. Install dehumidifiers if needed.  

Despite every effort you make to keep mice away, you still may find yourself dealing with an infestation. Fortunately, the experts at Adams Exterminating Company can help you eliminate house mice from your Celina home. Using safe and effective methods, we will exterminate your current population and exercise preventative measures to keep them from returning. Reach out to us today to schedule your free inspection. 

Signs That Termites Are Plaguing Your Celina Property

Termites are property owners’ worst nightmare. They inflect costly or even irreparable damage to structures and are difficult to eliminate.

tech treating for termites


Termites exist in a caste system with workers, soldiers, and reproductives. Except for reproductive swarmers or alates, termites live underground and survive off the cellulose they eat. They cannot survive in daylight, and therefore, it is highly unlikely that you will see them in your Celina home or business.  

Here in North Texas, we mostly deal with subterranean termites. They are 1/8-inch-long and range in color from cream to dark brown. When reproductives sprout two sets of wings to swarm, unlike carpenter ants, their wings are the same length.  


Fortunately, termites don’t carry any diseases, and therefore pose limited health threats. Unfortunately, the damages they can inflict on your property are extensive. Over time, as they reproduce and consume cellulose found in wood, they will destroy the structural integrity of your home if left to their own devices.  

Termites remain out of sight, but there are some signs you can look for that indicate you have a termite problem including:  

  • Mud tubes that termites use to travel between their food source (your home) and their nesting areas 

  • Hollow sounding wood 

  • Bubbling paint or peeling wallpaper due to excess water 

  • Discarded wings from swarming reproductives near doors or windowsills 


The best way to solve a termite problem is to be proactive and prevent one in the first place. Subterranean termites prefer to eat rotting, wet wood. Therefore, reducing excess moisture and replacing wood susceptible to rot is the first step toward termite prevention.  

Furthermore, exercising recurring professional termite control will help you rest easy knowing that you will not develop a termite problem. By partnering with the experts at Adams Exterminating Company, you know you will receive the best when it comes to termite prevention and elimination. We proudly use the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ to prevent future infestations and eliminate current ones. This proven system baits termites with a slow-acting poison that they then spread to every member of the colony that they contact. Eventually, it reaches the queen and results in complete elimination. Reach out to us today to learn more about termite prevention and elimination with help from the professionals at Adams Extermination Company.  


Are Ants Around My Celina Home Dangerous?

ants crawling on bread in a home

Ants in Celina are one of the most common nuisance pests in the area; however, there are certain types of ants that are far more dangerous than a common odorous house ant, for example. The imported red fire ant is one of the most hazardous ants in the area for the stings that they deliver. You can identify these aptly-named ants because of their fiery coloring. They are attracted to grease and meats and they typically live outdoors. If you disturb their nests, they may attack and some of the health implications can include nausea, vomiting, and body aches.

Carpenter ants could also be a problem for your home because these ants burrow inside the wood around your home, threatening the structural integrity of your property.  While this damage can take years to accrue, they can build satellite nests, which only perpetuates the issue. At Adams Exterminating Company, we provide ant control in Celina that targets a wide variety of ant species in order to keep your home protected throughout the year. When you enroll in one of our ongoing programs, you will never have to be concerned with ants again. For more information on how these services can benefit you, please call us today.


3 Things You Are Doing That Allow Spiders To Invade Your Celina Home

a house spider on wood in a home

Whether you’re aware of it or not, you might be letting spiders into your Celina home. Some of these spiders may be a simple nuisance, however, some, like the black widow and brown recluse, can be very harmful to your health so you should keep spiders out at all costs.

Here are three things you might be doing to attract spiders:

  1. Letting moisture issues continue: Spiders need water to survive and thrive off of dank conditions, both of which you might have in your home. If your basement or closets are a little damp, use a dehumidifier, or if you notice gutters that don’t function properly, you’ll want to fix them. Also, make sure that you always shut off faucets properly. 

  2. Not keeping a hygienic home: One of the main factors that attract spiders is the presence of other pests like cockroaches, flies, gnats, and ants, and all of these pests are lured by food scraps. To remove this attraction, sweep and disinfect routinely, store food in sealed containers, and always take out the trash. 

  3. Having cracks and crevices: Spiders and other pests can usually fit through almost any opening that they find, so if your foundation is vulnerable or there are gaps around your doors and windows, they might be letting spiders and pests inside. 

For complete Celina spider control, call Adams Exterminating Company today.


Celina's Ultimate Beetle Prevention Handbook

Beetles are in search of wood, grains, and wood, which may seemingly be everywhere, but there are certain steps that homeowners can take to deter them. These steps include:

  • Store all pasta, grains, baking supplies, and pantry snacks in sealed containers that get cleaned out between uses. 
  • Inspect all packages before bringing them inside. 
  • Inspect gardens regularly for signs of beetles and try to maintain a tidy yard by scaling back harborage sites.
  • Sweep up all crumbs and food debris thoroughly. 
  • Fill all gaps around doors and windows with weatherstripping, replace worn window screens, and apply silicone-based caulk to the cracks in the foundation. 
  • Vacuum and clean on a regular basis. 
  • Diffuse essential oils that contain scents that beetles hate, such as lavender, neem, and peppermint.
  • Enlist the help of a pest control professional for year-round protection from beetles and education on how to further deter them.

Four Things Every Celina Homeowner Should Know About Fleas

Fleas are a common pest problem for Celina homeowners, and there are four very important things that they should know about these pests:

  1. Fleas are parasites. As parasites, it’s a flea's objective to feed off of the blood of their host. It also means that they travel around via hitchhiking, which can make them very difficult to prevent and detect. 

  2. They can cause serious health hazards. While fleas are feeding on Fluffy and Fido, they can spread the pathogens that cause typhus, heartworm, and anemia. In people, they can lead to cat scratch fever, plague, and typhus, as well as skin irritations from scratching.

  3. Homeowners can develop flea problems in a variety of ways. Even if people don’t have pets, they can still develop an outbreak by bringing fleas home in infested used furniture or by having a rodent problem. 

  4. Professional help is the most effective way to eliminate an outbreak. Fleas usually lay their eggs in upholstered items and produce anywhere between four and eight eggs after each blood meal. This combination makes them very difficult to detect, which is why there’s no substitute for the help of a pest pro.
