Lawrence, KS Pest Control
While Lawrence, Kansas is recognized for its rich history and lively cultural scene, the city is also known for its colder-than-average winters. As you and your family head indoors to escape the below-freezing temperatures this winter, you should be aware that unwanted insects and animals may have the same idea as you have. These pests can enter your home through the smallest of openings. Since you inadvertently offer them food, water, shelter and warmth, they make themselves at home to reproduce and be general nuisances all season long. If you want to protect your living space before unwanted guests settle in for the duration, it’s best to enlist the help of professionals. Here's what you need to know about common pests in your area and how we can help to eliminate the problem.
Termites are insects that feed on dead wood and the organic fibers that are common to plants. Since nearly all buildings contain some form of wood or composite wood substances, they are prime targets of termites. Subterranean, Drywood, and Dampwood termites are the three main types of termites that invade U.S. homes, but the Eastern subterranean termite is the one that causes the most structural damage to Midwestern homes like the ones that are located in Lawrence. Termites are particularly worrisome pests because they can silently cause widespread damage before property owners are even aware of their presence. Since it is commonly reported that a colony of termites can chew through a foot of your home's frame in about six months, it is imperative to have your home inspected by experts and treated to eradicate destructive colonies fast.
Blustery Kansas winters give rodents all the motivation they need to seek shelter within toasty Lawrence homes of all kinds.

The services of a professional exterminator are needed to guarantee that bed bugs are thoroughly eliminated. At Advantage PC, we leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of a home free of bed bugs and their pernicious side effects.
