Pike Creek Valley is located in New Castle County and is the only community in Delaware that appeared on the 2017 list of Money Magazine’s 10 Best Places to Live in the United States.

Residential Pest Control In Pike Creek Valley, DE

Homes are meant to be havens of care and comfort, but as soon as mice, rats, insects, or any other pests gain entry, your home turns from a place of comfort to a place of discomfort, or even danger. Pests bring bacteria and diseases into homes, which can be harmful to the health of you and your family. Additionally, some pests damage the structural integrity of your home by chewing through wood or wiring in your home. That’s why it is imperative to keep your Pike Creek home protected with one of Moyer’s Home Guard programs. Each of our Home Guard programs has a different level of protection from Delaware’s common pests, depending on the severity of your specific pest problem. All three of our home pest control programs come with the guarantee that if pests return to your property in between our scheduled visits, we will return to deal with them, free of charge. If you’d like more information about all the residential services we offer, contact Moyer Pest Control today!

Signs Carpenter Ants Leave Behind In Pike Creek Valley, DE

Next to termites, carpenter ants are one of the biggest threats to homes and businesses alike. Carpenter ants are very similar to termites in the fact that they are usually only noticed after extensive damage has been done to the structure they are living in and chewing through. However, there are a few key differences that carpenter ants leave behind that can tip you off to the fact that they are there.

  • Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat the wood they chew through. Instead, they push any wood shavings, soil, and waste they produce out of their tunnels into piles, often referred to as “frass.” These piles look like sawdust and are often found near carpenter ant entrance tunnels.

  • Similarly, carpenter ants do not get their food from the wood they chew through, and instead must forage back outside or into your pantry to find food. If you ever see one or two ants crawling along your counter, it is highly likely that there are more hiding somewhere in or around your home.

  • Swarmer ants shed their wings once they have found a suitable location to live. Seeing these shed wings near windows, baseboards, or vents are a telling indication of carpenter ants within your home. 

When it comes to solving carpenter ant problems, contacting a pest expert should be the only course of action you take. Moyer Pest Control offers protection from carpenter ants and other pesky home intruders with our Home Guard programs—contact us for more information regarding these services.

bed bug on pike creek valley resident

How To Identify Bed Bug Infestations In Pike Creek Valley, DE

As a hitchhiking pest, bed bugs only enter homes if they are brought in on bags, clothing, pets, or skin. However, once they get inside, they are capable of reproducing and spreading to all areas of your home like a wildfire. When it comes to identifying whether or not your home has been infested by bed bugs, it’s good to know where to look for signs.

  • Bed bugs get their name from the fact that they are commonly found in beds, because beds give them an easily accessible food source every night when we go to sleep. Maroon spots on sheets, pillowcases, and blankets indicate bed bugs that have been feeding recently.

  • Obviously, bed bugs themselves would consist as evidence that there is a bed bug infestation in your home. Additionally, if you’re able to spot the tiny white eggs that bed bugs lay, they are also an indicator of a more problematic infestation.

  • What many people may not know is that bed bugs produce a sickly-sweet odor, especially when present in high numbers. If you can’t blame that odor on a lit candle or a cookie sheet in the oven, there’s a good chance that the odor is a sign that you have bed bugs.

Moyer Pest Control offers extensive bed bug services for Pike Creek Valley residents. Our team of highly qualified pest experts and K-9 inspectors will find and identify problem locations, and develop an effective treatment plan to eliminate them. Call Moyer Pest Control today, and don’t lose any more nights of sleep because of pesky bed bug intruders!
