Murphy Homeowner's Guide To Preventing Cockroaches 

Cockroaches are some of the most tenacious pests in the Murphy area. Once they’ve started to infest local homes, getting rid of them can be a challenge. Roaches are also the source of many harmful pathogens like giardia, E. coli, listeria, and much more.

In order to prevent these sorts of issues, try the following tips:

  • Be mindful of cleanliness: While there are more factors that attract cockroaches than hygiene, it’s a good place to start. Disinfect your kitchen and floors on a regular basis, paying extra attention to crumbs and spills. It may also be helpful to limit food consumption to one room in order to limit the spread of crumbs. 
  • Tend to moisture: Cockroaches can’t live for long without access to water, and it’s one of the factors that attracts them in the first place. Keep closets, areas around washing machines, and basements well-ventilated, and if there are any leaky pipes, fix them entirely. 
  • Examine packages: Before bringing any packages inside off of the porch, check them for signs of cockroach activity. 
  • Store food properly: It’s also imperative that all food items, whether snacks, baking ingredients, or leftovers, be kept in containers with tight-fitting lids.

Murphy, TX Homeowners Guide To Avoiding Termites

Termites are destructive pests that live in large numbers throughout Texas. Wood-eating termites are not an easy pest to deal with, but by working with a professional, it is easy to protect your home from termites and their damage. In addition to partnering with Adams Exterminating Company, some things you can do around your property to avoid problems with termites include:

  • Remove fallen trees, tree limbs, tree stumps, and piles of organic debris that termites could feed on from your property.
  • Use wood mulch in minimal amounts near your house. Leave at least an 18-inch barrier between any mulch and your home’s foundation.
  • Maintain gutters and make sure they are directing water away from your house.
  • Cut plant vegetation back away from the exterior of your home.
  • Fix leaky pipes and fixtures.
  • Use dehumidifiers to reduce moisture levels in your home. Additionally, make sure crawl spaces are adequately ventilated.

To learn more about avoiding wood-damaging termites and how we can eliminate them with the help of our highly effective termite control process, give Adams Exterminating Company a call today.

  • If your company puts out rodent poison at my house, will a rat die inside?
    Yes, this is a possibility. Ideally, we prefer to use traps on the inside and in the attic, and then place rodent poison in protected stations on the exterior (which could reduce the likelihood of having a rodent die inside). However, anytime a rodenticide is used, there is always a threat that a rat or mouse could die on the inside. If the dead rodent can be located and removed, this will fix the smell. Otherwise, we sell odor control products to help with unpleasant smells should this unfortunately occur.
  • How many years have you been in business?
    We are a family owned, locally operated pest control company that has been in business since 1947. For over 75 years, our company has expanded its service area while continuing to provide exceptional customer service.
  • How long do I have to stay out of my home or property after treatment is performed?
    In situations where you have to be out of the property during and after treatment (flea treatment, roach clean-out service, or for health reasons, etc.), we recommend that you stay away until all products have completely dried. This is usually approximately two to four hours depending on conditions, after which time it is completely safe to re-enter the property.
  • 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.

Four Common Rodents Found In Murphy 

Rodents are a category of pest that can wreak havoc on Murphy properties. Here are four types that people might encounter:

  1. Mice: The house mouse is one of the more common species of mouse that live in this area. They are pocket-sized and have very small, subtle features. Mice in general are able to fit through openings that are the size of a dime. They often create their nests inside of insulation or other quiet places. 
  2. Rats: There are many different types of rats in Murphy, such as the Norway rat, roof rat, and wood rat. All are larger than mice and are known for their long, hairless tails. Rats have the ability to scale houses and use sewer systems to enter homes. 
  3. Pocket gophers: Pocket gophers may grind at tree trunks and burrow beneath the ground, leading to unsightly mounds.
  4. Squirrels: This type of rodent is easily spotted by its bushy tail and proclivity for climbing trees. Squirrels often eat with their hands and stand up tall. They may create trouble by chewing on electrical wires.
