Comprehensive pest control is crucial to protect what may be the biggest investment you ever make, and no city is immune to pests. Many pests can damage your property, while others carry and spread diseases. An exterminator should conduct a thorough inspection in and around your structure, from the ground level to the roof peak.
The most common insect infestations in the Olathe, Overland Park, and Lenexa areas are termites, carpenter ants, roaches, and rodents. Everett Milberger has been eliminating pests in Kansas City for nearly 100 years, and we know how best to eradicate all of these pests and more from your property.
Termites do their worst damage before you ever know they are there. By the time you notice signs like mud tubes on exterior walls, wood that sounds hollow when knocked on, or bubbling paint, you’re already looking at extensive repairs. Thorough inspections in and around the structure are necessary regardless of the construction materials used. Our exterminator will use advanced treatment methods – either Sentricon System or Termidor System – to control and eliminate termites in your home or business.
Carpenter ants do not consume wood like termites, but they do build nests inside wood (preferably dead, damp wood) that consist of galleries chewed out with their mandibles, which can cause extensive damage to structures. They will also bite humans, and their bites are quite painful. Carpenter ants are most active at night so evening inspections are best. Kansas City exterminator Milberger Pest Control will locate the colony/nest and any satellite colonies/nests, then drill and treat the entire colony.
Besides being a common phobia, roaches carry disease. There are several reasons your exterminator may recommend bait for roach control, including superior control, long-term effectiveness, and lower cost than sprays, foggers, or powders. Foraging roaches consume lethal doses of bait, then return to their nest. Before they die (within 24-72 hours), they poison many other roaches who also receive a lethal dose – even in other units. Tests have shown that after consuming the bait, one cockroach can cause the death of up to 44 other roaches!
Mice have been a problem in the Olathe area forever, and within the past few years, there has been a significant uptick in rat infestations as well. Because the reproductive potential of a single pair of mice or rats is staggering, our control of an infestation relies on both reducing the intruder’s population with bait technology, as well as using pesticides and rodenticides when possible. Our technicians can also offer tips on roach prevention and rodent-proofing your home or business in a manner that will effectively solve the problem.
