Overland Park, KS Pest Control
Advantage Termite & Pest Control can tackle a host of problems in the Overland Park area; termites and rodents make up a good portion of it, but we also remove fleas, mosquitoes, bedbugs, and wildlife.
Termites are wood-eating insects that cause billions of dollars worth of structural damage each year in the U.S. Subterranean termites are by far the more common termites; they come up from the soil to hollow out wet or decayed wood, and when the time comes for swarming, they develop wings. Drywood termites build their nests in the wood itself rather than in the soil, and they tend to stay put. As a result, they cause less damage.
We have licensed technicians who know where to look for indications of a pest invasion. During a termite inspection, they'll search for wings discarded by subterranean termites (they develop these wings in order to swarm) and for any mud tubes near your wood structures. Drywood termites leave behind excrement called frass, and it's instantly recognizable to our team.
Moles, voles, mice and rats have many ways of getting into homes and apartments. They scavenge for food and search for shelter and warmth. Even a large rat only needs a hole the size of a quarter to get into your home. At Advantage, we take care of your rodent issues in Overland Park permanently. Our Advantage professionals thoroughly inspect the interior and exterior of your home or apartment. We use a combined strategy of traps and blocking the entrance points of the rodents. We also offer an ongoing maintenance plan so that you can maintain a rodent-free home.
Do you hear the pitter-patter of feet in your attic, walls, crawlspace or basement? If so, you need our Advantage wildlife control services. Any number of wild creatures could get into your home. A skunk could cause havoc in your yard, or a squirrel could be running amok in your attic. Our professionals identify the type of wildlife problem. We use live traps to safely capture the animal. The technician also identifies the entry points and closes them so that the critter cannot return to your home. Our wildlife services in Overland Park include removal of:
- Bees and bee hives
Bed Bug Control
Over the past five years, bed bug problems have become rife in Overland Park. They get into your home when you travel to an infested hotel or motel. They can also hitch a ride in used furniture, books and boxes. At Advantage, we have extensive training and research in bed bug elimination. If you think you have bed bugs, we can help. We check all the places where bed bugs hide. We offer a range of treatment options to get them out of your home for good.
General Pest Control Services
With integrated pest management (IPM), we minimize the use of harmful pesticides and maximize our customers' safety. Green treatments are available as well. We utilize humane trapping methods to remove rodents and wildlife like squirrels, raccoons, and bats. When it comes to pests that must be exterminated, like mosquitoes, we'll spray high-quality insecticides and also eliminate the problem at the egg and larval stages. Freezing treatments are possible when getting rid of bee and wasp nests.
Our company is proud to use Sentricon systems for subterranean termite control. These are baiting systems that provide the pests with poisoned food that will spread and infect their colony. This is a great alternative to the spraying of termiticides into the ground, which can require drilling and other major structural work. Drywood termites can be treated through partial-structure fumigation.
Even if you're not sure you have an infestation, give us a call at Advantage Termite & Pest Control. Once we get the facts straight, we'll present you with a free estimate for the necessary work.
