Our Advanced Lexington Pest Control Services
One thing that’s important to remember about pest control is that
there’s no “one size fits all approach.” While certain
cases require intensive spraying, for instance, others require
baiting and trapping. Other times, the best route is removal and exclusion, to
keep pests from returning to your property. The point is that whether
you are dealing with a serious infestation that requires exterminating
or need treatment for a minor pest problem, our Lexington pest control
technicians have the advanced technology and training to get the job done right.
Modern Exterminating Is Proud to Offer Pest Control Solutions For:
Ants: Ants can do a lot more than just ruin a picnic. These clever critters flock
to anywhere there is food, even venturing far away from their nests to
find sustenance. That’s why it is extremely important that you always
package and seal meals and snacks appropriately, and clean up any messes
in your kitchen as soon as they get made. You should also keep in mind
that if you see wood shavings throughout your house or find that parts
of your structure feel unstable, you could be dealing with carpenter ants.
And speaking of pests that damaged wood…
Termites: Most termites are extremely
drawn to moisture, so if your wooden foundation or any other wooden parts of your home have
recently experienced water damage, make sure to pay close attention to
ensure an infestation does not happen. Damp wood is automatically weaker,
creating a veritable buffet for the average termite. However, there are
dry-wood termites too, meaning that no matter what condition your house
is in, it could be vulnerable to a termite problem. If there are any parts
of your wood that sound hollow, or you find little wooden shavings around
your property, or if you see the “swarmers” (flying termites) that usually signal you are on the verge of an
infestation, call Modern Exterminating for termite control in Lexington
immediately. These little buggers cause $30 billion in damage every year,
so speed is key when dealing with termites.
Cockroaches: While there are some insects that that may not bother you, pretty much
no one likes cockroaches. These nasty little intruders leave waste everywhere
they go, plus they pollute your indoor air quality. Much like ants, cockroaches
will flock to wherever they can find food, so it is essential to keep
your home clean and tidy to prevent infestations. Unlike ants, roaches
are extremely hard to kill, so it is essential to hire a seasoned Lexington
pest control professional if these unwanted guests keep popping up on
your property. Remember that cockroaches are also attracted to excess
moisture, so clean up your spills and put away your dog/cat dish every
Fleas: Fleas are most famous for attacking pets, however, they can make life pretty
uncomfortable for the average human, too. Watch out for strange behavior
in your animals, and if you find that you are experiencing strange bites
on your skin, do not hesitate to contact us to see if
you have a flea problem. Fleas can lay up to 50 eggs per day, so you do not want these insects
making their way into your property.
Fruit Flies: Peoples always feel like fruit flies come out of nowhere, but in truth,
there’s actually a very specific set of circumstances that leads
to a fruit fly infestation. When fruit or other food rots and ferments,
fruit flies are naturally drawn to it. Once fruit flies make their way
into your Lexington home or business, they will then lay hundreds of eggs
in any moist area they can find, causing this cycle to repeat all over
again. That’s why the best method for preventing fruit flies from
spreading is twofold. First, never leave fruit/other food out for longer
than you have to. It’s always a good idea to throw these items away
sooner rather than later, especially if you’re going to leave home
for any extended period of time. Second, limit excess moisture on your
property and do everything you can to clean up spills, as water is the
other major draw for fruit flies.
Bed Bugs: Living with bed begs is pretty much a nightmare for any property owner.
If you’re a homeowner, they make being comfortable all but impossible,
and if you’re a business-owner, they make it impossible to operate
without causing harm to your employees/customers. Typical signs of a bed
bug infestation include itchy red bite marks on your body, dried blood
on your sheets/pillows, little brown/white bed bug shells/eggs around
your property, and a persistent sweet, sour smell.
Bed bugs can travel easily and survive pretty much anywhere they can find a hiding place (not just
beds,) making bed bug infestations extremely difficult to get rid of.
That’s why if you believe there’s even a chance you’re
dealing with bed bugs, you should call our pros at Modern Exterminating
Rodents: Rats and mice are not only unpleasant to look at, they also spread disease
and cause damage to your home. Common signs of a rodent infestation include
small black droppings, a urine smell around your property, a scurrying
sound coming from your walls/attic, bite marks on your wood/electrical
wires, and rub marks, which are commonly left by dirt and grime accumulated
on the body of a rat. You may also start to notice strange behavior in
your pets when dealing with a rodent infestation.
summer is traditionally thought of as mosquito season, climate change has led to an increase in mosquito sightings in spring
through fall. In addition to leaving itchy bites, mosquitos can also carry
diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue, filariasis, encephalitis,
Western Equine encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis, Japanese encephalitis,
Eastern Equine encephalitis, and West Nile virus, so it is important to
do everything you can to reduce their presence on your Lexington property.
That starts by reducing any areas with excess moisture or standing water
outside, as mosquitos flock to water.
Snakes: Modern Exterminating is proud to announce our new snake prevention service!
