Bed bugs are a nightmare for home and business owners in Houston. Not only do they quickly spread from person to person and home to home, but they are hard to get rid of on...
When a homeowner thinks about the various responsibilities that come with that kind of investment, the list can be rather intimidating. If you look at it from the point of view of a business owner, then caring for your investment involves even more stress, as many business owners have their livelihood wrapped up in the success of their business. While the number of responsibilities for home and business owners can be daunting, ignoring the threat that pests can pose to a home or business can wind up proving very costly.
At White Knight Pest Control, we have all the tools and know-how to keep your McKinney property protected from all the pests that call Texas home. Reach out to us today and find out how we can eliminate any and every pest problem you might face.
The need for residential pest control in our Texas town is twofold: first, there are plenty of pests that can do some serious damage to your home and property. Pests like termites and carpenter ants will cripple the wooden structures in your home in such a way as to avoid detection until costly damage has been done.
Other common home invaders, like roaches and rodents, will not only do damage to your home, but they present a significant health threat as well. Roaches and rodents (namely, mice and rats) are known bacteria carriers, putting you at risk of incurring dangerous diseases if they manage to gain access to your stored food or meal-preparation areas.
Unfortunately, pests are nearly impossible to keep out. Roaches can flatten their hard, outer shells to squeeze into tight spaces. Mice and rats can also squeeze their bodies into tight spaces, and they’re equipped with sharp teeth that allow them to chew through almost anything. This gives them access to almost any structure as they can simply use their teeth to widen cracks in the foundation to gain entry.
Pest prevention is very difficult, and the health concerns are real. If you’re not being proactive about residential pest control, all of these pests and dozens more can easily wind up costing you one way or another, either in home repair bills or medical bills. Contact White Knight today and find out why a comprehensive home pest control program could be the perfect solution for your McKinney home.
The business owners of McKinney have to deal with just as many threats as homeowners, if not more. With pests trying to sneak their way in to find an easy source of food, restaurants, factories, hospitals, hotels, and a majority of other McKinney businesses have to constantly worry about pests creating inventory problems.
Even more worrisome is the damage that these invaders can do to the reputation of a business. Today’s customer service is all about satisfying customers who seem to always have a camera at the ready, waiting on the first opportunity to expose poor business practices. If you want your business to go viral in the worst way, then one pest sighting is all it takes.
That’s why White Knight Pest Control offers the very best in commercial pest prevention in the region. With flexible schedules, our pest technicians implement preventative measures at a time that won’t interfere with your workflow. Plus, our on-call technicians can help you eradicate a pest problem before your customers even have to know about it.
As we mentioned before, cockroaches can be one of the most common pest problems for McKinney residents and business owners. However, our region also features one of the most talented building invaders in the world. German cockroaches are one of the smallest species of roaches, yet one of the biggest pains to deal with. Since they’re so small, they can gain access to places that most roaches can’t, making them a severe threat to your stored food items.
Along with the dangerous bacteria that all roaches share, German cockroaches will also secrete a pathogen that causes an allergic reaction in many adults and children. Since they can gain access to almost anywhere, the only thing you can do to prevent them from invading your house is to limit factors that will attract them such as the following:
Unfortunately, however, even homeowners who manage to get everything right can still wind up with a dangerous German cockroach infestation, so the only guaranteed method of prevention is enlisting professional help. Don’t let them continue to threaten the safety of your home and family for one more day: contact the professionals at White Knight for professional German cockroach control.
If cockroaches are the biggest health threat in our area, then termites are, without a doubt, the biggest threat to the structures that we own. Whether it’s a home or a business, if you own a building that has any wooden components at all, termites can cost you thousands of dollars. Most termite infestations go unnoticed for months, and it only takes about a year for them to do damage that can cost more than $3,000 on average.
One thing you should know about termites is that they prefer to feed on moistened, rotted wood, so moisture management is your best bet when it comes to prevention. However, even if you reduce moisture buildup on your property by using extreme caution, you can still wind up with termite problems.
Once again, there are no substitute or guaranteed prevention methods outside of professional pest control. That’s why our pest experts at White Knight Pest Control are ready to help when it’s convenient for you. Give us a call today to learn more about protecting your investments from invasive pests and why a professional termite treatment from White Knight is the best way to keep your property protected for the future.
