Tips for controlling spiders around your home

Posted by Tommy Everitte on Mon, Feb 28, 2011 @ 8:58 PM

   Spiders are actually, for the most part beneficial. They survive by feeding on insects. Oftentimes they are the most important biological control of insect pests in gardens, fields, and homes. However, their presence is a cause of concern to many homeowners and businesses. Many people fear spiders beause of stories or myths. Others object to spiders because of their habit of building webs in and around structures. There are a few spiders whose bite require medical attention, such as the Black Widow and Brown Recluse but most spiders are basically harmless.

Pest Control related issues in some of Raleigh's older homes

Posted by Tommy Everitte on Wed, Feb 09, 2011 @ 8:28 AM

   Yesterday I did a termite inspection on a home in the raleigh area that was over 80 years old. Homes this old are not unusual in the Raleigh area but at the same time they are not your typical termite inspections either. One of the first things I think of when I go to inspect one of these homes, besides how beautiful and unique many of them are, is that the range of wood destroying insect evidence I am likely to see increases. This particular house had a few issues. I found active termites in a couple diferent areas, the moisture level in the crawlspace was high and I found active Powder beetles in several floor joists. Powder post beetles can infest newer homes also, but I see them alot more often in older homes.

Termite inspection advice for new homeowners

Posted by Tommy Everitte on Thu, Feb 03, 2011 @ 4:33 PM
  When buying a new home, you may think you dont have to worry about termites since you just recently had an inspection. This is not the case at all. The truth is no matter how thorough the Pest Control company was during the inspection, the only thing they are looking for is visual evidence of termites. Termite infestations are often completely hidden and may not be visible until swarmers emerge, or damage is uncovered. The first thing you should do is find out if the house was contract with the previous owner. If so, often times you can transfer the contract into your name at little or no cost. If not, I would suggest calling a few pest control companies to give you an estimate. Most pest control companies offer free estimates. If you live in the Fayetteville, NC or Raleigh, NC area we would be glad to give you a free evaluation and estimate for termite protection.
