If you see one or two ants crawling up your porch or walls, there are more than likely over 1,000 ants near or in your home as they live in colonies—that number can be worrisome as some ants are known to bite and some people are allergies to ants. If you see any trace of odorous house ants, pavement ants, carpenter ants, or fire ants—the most common ants you'll see in the Philadelphia area—skip the DIY ant treatments and give PCT a call, and one of our exterminators will be there shortly to eliminate the ant colonies.
Ways to prevent ant infestations:
In addition to being just plain creepy, cockroaches carry Salmonella, Typhi, Poliomyelitis, and many other dangerous bacteria and diseases. It’s safe to say you don’t want these pests in your kitchen or bathroom! Unfortunately, these insects are active year-round, with their reproduction cycle taking place in the warm summer months and the cold winter air driving them inside your home in search of shelter later in the year. Here at PCT, we have all the solutions you need to eliminate any cockroach infestation.
Our cockroach control in Philadelphia can handle all local types of roaches:
Stink bugs are an invasive species that was introduced to the U.S. on a shipping container from Asia. Although not dangerous to your family, they release a pungent chemical as a defense mechanism that can leave your house smelling awful. They are drawn into homes to avoid colder temperatures, so you'll likely begin to see signs of them in September and October. Stink bugs may also begin to appear in your home in the winter, being drawn from hiding in walls into the interior of your home to seek more warmth as temperatures drop.
These pests attract more of their own kind through chemical signals, so a few stink bugs can turn into many before you know it. PCT provides stink bug control that is designed to eliminate these pests quickly and effectively. Our stink bug exterminators target potential entry points in order to stop these invaders in their tracks, keeping them from taking over your home.
Pest control can be complicated, but PCT makes it easy. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have throughout your pest treatment process, but to get you started, here are some frequently asked questions about our pest control in the Philadelphia area:
DIY and store-bought solutions for pest control can be a Band-Aid solution, but they will rarely stop the problem at its source. Not to mention, most homeowners lack the experience needed to use these products properly and might put themselves and their loved ones at risk by using pest control products incorrectly. When you work with professionals, you have the benefit of satisfaction guarantees, industry training, and recurring service. Going the professional route is the smartest choice for your health and wallet.
Professional exterminators in Southeast Pennsylvania will not only be trained in how to safely and effectively utilize pest control products, but they will also have the added expertise necessary to identify the source of infestations, entry points, and other important factors to consider when trying to eliminate pests. Recurring treatment plans are often necessary for long-term solutions, and a professional will be able to establish a reliable service plan for consistent results. In the long run, you’ll save money and headache by working with the experts.
Here at PCT, we prioritize using EPA-approved products and methods that are safe for you, children, and pets, and the environment.
It is rare that you’ll need to leave your home for a treatment. Typically, only severe infestations require a home or business to be evacuated. Your technicians will communicate with you throughout your treatment process, keeping you up-to-date on what you can expect with your service.
You’ll likely see results within a two-week period. However, some factors, such as the type and number of pests you’re dealing with, can speed up or slow down the process.
Preventative and recurring treatments are an important part of keeping pests from returning.
Even the cleanest homes fall victim to pests. Often, insects and wildlife are simply searching for shelter, food, and water—things that they can easily find in your home.
