Fighting Fire Ants On Your Lake Dallas Property

At some point, you’ve likely come across a sandy mound that’s host to a plethora of fire ants. If you know better, you’ll steer clear knowing that these small ants pack quite the punch. They will sting anyone that threatens their home multiple times leaving behind painful red welts.

Fire ants are dark red to brown and quite small. At their largest, they are just shy of ½ inch. Like all ant species, they have oval segments, six legs, and a pair of antennae.  


Fire ants earned their name from their color and the burning sting they inflict upon their victims. If you encounter a fire ant nest, they will sting multiple times resulting in painful welts that turn to white pustules. Those with allergies will have more severe symptoms and may need to seek medical care after an altercation with fire ants.  

Aside from their painful stings, fire ants may take over your yard with their large, mounded nests. As their colony expands, they will continue to build nests making it impossible for you to lounge in the grass without coming into contact with these pests.  

Fire ants may also get inside your home through AC units of HVAC systems offering them more opportunities to ambush and sting you.  


The best way to avoid a fire ant sting is to avoid their nests. However, when fire ants invade your property in large numbers, this can be increasingly difficult. Therefore, seal any entry points that allow ants inside your home and contact a professional to help reduce your fire ant population in your yard.  

At Adams Exterminating Company, we apply a series of fire ant treatments so that you don’t have to worry about accidentally encountering these stinging insects. Reach out today with questions about our fire ant control options.

How To Tell If You Have Termites On Your Lake Dallas Property

Termites are no laughing matter. If these destructive insects find their way onto your Lake Dallas property, you should be worried. Americans collectively pay over 5 billion dollars in termite protection and repairs annually. Therefore, it's important to understand termite identification, behavior, and prevention before a termite colony becomes a problem in your North Texas home or business.

termites near your lake dallas home


Termites operate within a caste system meaning that each member has a different job to ensure the functionality of the overall colony.

  • Workers are less than ¼ inch long and have white bodies.  They use their small jaws to constantly chew through wood to feed other members of the colony.

  • Soldiers are slightly larger than workers with flat, white bodies and darker colored, rectangular-shaped heads. They have large mandibles that they use to defend the colony.

  • Reproductives are also known as alates or swarmers. As their name implies, their job is to reproduce and expand the colony. Once a colony reaches its full capacity, reproductives will sprout wings, emerge from the colony, mate, and establish a sister colony.

For the most part, you will not see termites as they stay hidden underground and within the wood they’re eating. They use mud tubes to travel from place to place.  During spring and summer months when termites typically swarm, you may see the discarded wings of alates or reproductives near windowsills, or you may even see the swarm itself.


Here in Lake Dallas, we mostly experience problems with subterranean termites.  This species can cause the most damage as they constantly eat wood. Eventually, if left unchecked, they will irreparably destroy a structure. Though you may not see the termites themselves, there are some common signs of a termite infestation.

  • Mud tubes on the exterior of the home that allow termites to move between their nest and their food source. 

  • As termites eat wood, they will eventually eat to the point where wood sounds hollow when tapped.  

  • Termites produce excess moisture causing the paint to bubble or peel.  

  • Termites like to keep their nests clean.  Therefore, they will push waste or frass out through exit holes. Frass resembles small piles of salt and pepper.  

  • During swarming season, you may find discarded wings near windows or doors.  


If you notice any signs of termite infestation or are worried about termites invading your Lake Dallas home or business, reach out to a professional immediately. Though you can exercise preventative measures` such as replacing rotting wood and avoiding moisture problems in the home, termites are not something you can deal with on your own.

Fortunately, the experts at Adams Exterminating Company have the solutions you need to prevent or solve any termite problem. We use the Sentricon® System with Always Active­™, the #1 brand in termite protection, to constantly keep your home free of these wood-destroying pests. We will inspect your property, strategically install these bait stations, and return frequently to check and replace them as needed. Reach out to us today with any questions you have about our preventative termite control services.

Avoiding Mosquitoes Around Your Lake Dallas Home Or Business

We’ve all experienced the persistent buzz of a mosquito as they incessantly circle your head looking for the right moment to bite. During the warmest months of the year, we seek respite by sitting outside only to be disturbed by these tenacious biting pests.

Mosquitoes are winged insects with long, dangling legs, slender bodies, and a protruding proboscis. Females reach about ¼ inch in length and feed on human blood to provide nutrients for their eggs. Males are much larger, and unlike females, they feed on nectar exclusively.


Aside from the annoying itchy welt associated with a female mosquito’s bite, mosquitoes are a vector for a host of dangerous diseases. As they bite mammals, they will carry and transmit the Zika virus, malaria, West Nile Virus, dengue fever, chikungunya, yellow fever, encephalitis, and tularemia. The potential to contract any of these dangerous diseases makes mosquito control paramount for your health and well-being.


Unfortunately, you will never get rid of every single mosquito in your yard. You can, however, exercise preventative measures to reduce their population. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, therefore, eliminating areas where eggs will thrive is the first step towards mosquito control. Check all areas where rainwater collects including tarps, children’s toys, gutters, and bird feeders. Empty water from these areas regularly.

To enhance your mosquito control efforts, consider using professional treatment options. At Adams Exterminating Company, we use backpack misting services as well as the In2Care system to target breeding and resting areas to greatly reduce the mosquito population in your Lake Dallas yard. We offer regular, one-time, and eco-friendly mosquito treatment options so that you can find a plan that suits your needs. Reach out to us today to speak with one of our friendly representatives about all our mosquito control services.
