How To Tell If Your McKinney Home Has Carpenter Ants

It’s very easy for carpenter ants in McKinney to get misidentified because the damage they cause is similar to that of termites. There are, however, key differences between the two insects and how they work.

While termites actually eat away at wood, carpenter ants burrow inside of it. While the differences continue, here are a few ways to determine if your home has carpenter ants:

  • The presence of frass, which is sawdust-like carpenter ant feces
  • Piles of shed wings
  • Seeing “flying ants” 
  • Wood that has a shredded or rotted appearance
  • Holes in walls that look frayed around the edges
  • Subtle noises coming from within your walls
  • Spotting large black ants outside of your home, as these may be worker ants
  • Wood that sounds and feels hollow when you tap it

If you want to know with certainty whether or not your home has been invaded by carpenter ants, call Adams Exterminating for carpenter ant control right away.

Five Tips To Deter Wasps In McKinney

The wasps in McKinney have the ability to be very harmful to people’s well-being. They can sting repeatedly if they choose, which can lead to significant allergic reactions. Here are five tips that can help residents deter wasps off of their property:

  1. Shore up water sources. Wasps, like other pests, need water in order to survive. To that end, keep pools covered between uses, make sure that no water collects in areas such as flower pots, and fix any drippy plumbing. 
  2. Consider plants. These stinging insects are also lured to bright, blossoming flowers. Instead of planting flowers in the colors of blue, purple, and pink, consider oranges, such as marigolds, as well as an array of fresh herbs. 
  3. Keep things clean. When hosting outdoor parties, always keep meals covered when not serving. It’s also important to keep a cover on the trash bin and wipe away any spilled items. 
  4. Reduce nesting sites. To further deter wasps, try to make the landscape unappealing to them. This may include pruning and trimming back trees.
  5. Bring in assistance. One of the best ways to deter wasps is by removing their nests, both old and new. The safest means of accomplishing this is by having a pest professional do it. By working with a pest control expert, homeowners can also benefit from treatments that target wasp activity.

  • Do you offer any organic/green/low toxic treatments?

    We do offer “green” treatments because we understand that though the synthetic pesticides that we typically use are quite safe, some people for various valid reasons prefer a green approach to pest control. In addition to employing completely non-chemical measures such as structural and mechanical alterations (weep-hole exclusions, recommendations on door sweep replacement etc.) and glue traps or other monitoring devices, we have a number of natural and botanical insecticides that we can use to treat your home or business.

    We commonly use natural products such as boric acid, diatomaceous earth, and a number of different botanical products (pyrethrum, rosemary oil, cedar oil, etc.). These products can be very effective when used properly. One downside is that they usually don't last as long as synthetic pesticides, so we generally recommend a more frequent treatment cycle, such as monthly, when using these products. Just tell the person you speak with on the phone or the technician who services your property about your preference and we will be happy to accommodate you.

  • Do you offer plans or bundles?
    Yes, we offer three different plans designed to meet your needs and your budget. Our perimeter, Home Guardian, and Home Guardian Plus are all designed to bundle your pest control treatment into a package that fits your needs. If there isn’t a plan that works for you, don’t worry, we will customize one that fits your unique needs.
  • What are your hours?
    Our offices in both Lewisville, TX and Denton, TX are open Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm.
  • Are the products/chemicals you use safe?
    All of the products that we use have undergone extensive testing and have been approved for use by the EPA. Instead of using generic products, we believe in purchasing the best available chemicals that have been manufactured by well-known companies such as Bayer, BASF, and Dow. Additionally, all of our service programs are designed to be effective, safe, and environmentally responsible and all of the products we use are chosen to that end. When used properly by a licensed professional, they pose practically no risk to our customers or their children or pets.
