Marietta Pest Control

Residential pests can make your home or yard an unpleasant place to be. In addition to being irritating, some of these insects may also pose health hazards or damage your home.

Ants

Common ant varieties include the light brown argentine ant, a tiny ant that is only one-eighth of an inch long. These ants lead fellows to your home via pheromone trails, a mechanism that can potentially bring hundreds of them into your kitchen.

Though the name may bring to mind the wood-eating habits of termites, black carpenter ants are more well-known for boring tunnels to get from place to place, meaning that an uncontrolled infestation could cause serious home damage.

Small red fire ants have nasty bites no thanks to their venom. These are commonly found around the yard rather than in the house, and you'll want to get rid of them as quickly as possible, especially if you have children. 

Mosquitoes

Anyone who's had to suffer through an itchy summer knows how irritating mosquitoes can be. The bites of these small, spindle-legged insects may also transmit a variety of diseases such as malaria, the West Nile virus and encephalitis. Be on the lookout for standing water and keep grassy areas well-mowed to lower the chances of these pests taking over the yard.  Our Mosquito Reduction Program is a cost-effective monthly treatment plan during the highest-risk months of the year, April- October, to make sure that you can enjoy your outdoor space all summer long.  We also offer Special Event Mosquito Treatments!

Roaches

At over two inches in length, it's no wonder cockroaches make many people's skin crawl. Species include brown-banded, American and smoky brown and the insects may be brown or black in color. Scooting around on six legs, these destructive bugs give off an unpleasant smell and may eat their way through paper or curtains.

Whether these insects are buzzing around your yard or crawling through the house, the best way to protect your health is to get rid of them.  Contact Skyline today for a free quote and let us take care of pesky pests.
