Serving North Texas Since 1947

Shady Shores, TX Pest Control

Only a matter of miles outside of Dallas, Shady Shores provides residents with small-town charm and the scenic backdrop of Lewisville Lake. Known primarily for its waterfront access, Shady Shores also offers well-respected public schools, walkable neighborhoods, and a variety of locally-owned businesses. Or as they say: “Life Happens Here.” With mild temperatures for most of the year that grow very warm during the summer, Shady Shores sees only a small amount of rain, making it a breeding ground for pest infestations. At Adams Exterminating Company, we’ve been keeping the homes and businesses of the greater Dallas area pest-free since 1947. With our emphasis on science, we always do what is safe and reliable for our customers. To learn more about our services and receive your free, no-obligation estimate, contact us today.

Five Simple & Effective Ant Prevention Tips For Shady Shores Homeowners

As Shady Shores' most common nuisance pest, ants are very likely to cause local homeowners a problem at one time or another.

To avoid an infestation on your property, try these five simple, yet effective tips:

  1. Seal up cracks and crevices. To begin, tend to all of the crevices and small openings that may be present in your home’s foundation. Also be sure to repair any broken window screens and fill the gaps around windows and doors with weatherstripping and door sweeps. 
  2. Store your food securely. The thing ants are primarily looking for is your food, which is why it’s so important to always store food and pantry items in properly sealed containers. 
  3. Don’t forget about the trash. Your garbage is just as enticing to ants, so always use a bin with a lid, take out the trash on a regular basis, and be sure to check your bin for any food bits or spills. 
  4. Keep things clean. Ants will flock to your home if there’s the presence of crumbs or spills that haven’t been properly addressed. Aim to clean the floors and surfaces around your home regularly, even if it’s spilled soap or shampoo, as ants can confuse them for a sugary drink. 
  5. Address moisture issues. Another thing that ants need is a water source, which is why they’ll loiter around a leaky pipe or faucet. If you have anything that’s leaking, fix it.

Keeping ants out of your Shady Shores home can prove difficult, which is why the most effective thing to do is enlist help from the professionals at Adams Exterminating Company. To learn more about how we can keep your home ant-free, contact us today.

  • What are your hours?
    Our offices in both Lewisville, TX and Denton, TX are open Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm.
  • Do you offer pest control to businesses?
    Yes, we offer both residential and commercial pest control. We will work with the needs of your business to ensure that pests are not a problem. Furthermore, we understand the State of Texas’s Health and Safety Codes when it comes to pesticide use and pest control.
  • 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.
  • What are the steps to take prior to receiving flea treatment?
