Household Pests:
Unwanted Insects in Texas

An insect infestation can be troublesome, and once found, removing them can be a daunting task. If you have an infestation, your local expert exterminators at Pest Management, Inc. provide pest control services in Texas and the surrounding areas.


Bees, Wasps, and Hornet Infestations

If you're experiencing a high number of bees, wasps, or hornets near your home or garden, there is likely to be a nest nearby. In the Texas Hill Country, we experience infestations from these insects, and they can cause severe grief. Distinguishing between a bee, wasp, or hornet can be tricky. However, while their appearances may be similar, their behaviors are not.

No Sting Zone: Bee Remediation

There are many types of bees, and they provide many incredible benefits to our local environment. However, a nest near your home can cause property damage, bodily harm, and harm to these key pollinators.

Aggressive Wasps and Hornets

Unlike bees, wasps and hornets are significantly more dangerous because of their aggressive nature when disturbed. Additionally, these pests do not die after stinging.

Treatment and Prevention

The first thing to do if you're stung by any insect is leave the area to seek treatment. If stung by a bee, make sure to apply treatment immediately by removing the stinger and using a cold compress to lessen any pain and ease the swelling. Should your symptoms worsen, then seek emergency medical treatment, as you could be having an allergic reaction. Similar to bee stings, if you are stung by a hornet or wasp, and your symptoms worsen, please seek emergency medical treatment.


Pest Management, Inc. can inspect your home and deliver rapid, effective hornet, bee, and wasp removal and treatment services.

Ant Control Services

Aside from biting people and potentially causing allergic reactions, ants can damage your property or ruin your lawn. When dealing with ants, our expert ant exterminators employ specialized methods to deal with various types of ants more effectively.

Carpenter Ant Extermination

Active year-round, these large ants can be found inside or outside your home. Generally, carpenter ants will make their nests outdoors, making their homes in dead trees, telephone poles, porches, pillars, and roofs. However, they will come inside when searching for food and water.

Putting Out Fire Ants

Fire ants are small reddish-brown insects that become very aggressive when disturbed and can even damage electrical equipment. They generally prefer sunny areas preferring to make their mounds in these locations. The network of tunnels underneath allows them to forage unseen.

Due to their aggressive nature, the best way to handle ant colonies on your property is to contact our expert Pest Management, Inc. exterminators to devise an effective treatment plan.


Mosquito Control Services

While mosquitoes might be among the most annoying pests to encounter and may not seem to be the most severe pest to deal with, they are among the most dangerous. This is due to the number of diseases that mosquitoes can carry malaria, encephalitis, yellow and dengue fevers.

Mosquito Extermination

The best approach to mitigating the mosquito population around your home is by draining any standing water. This provides them with the right environmental conditions to thrive. Examples of areas with standing water mosquitoes can use rain gutters, buckets, birdbaths, and swimming pools, to name a few. Taking proper care of your yard by mowing your lawn and pulling weeds along the fence line also helps. When using mosquito repellent, ensure that what you’re using is EPA approved.


Using these methods can help control the situation for more permanent mosquito service needs contact Pest Management, Inc. to have our exterminators administer treatment.

Flea Problems

Creating a lot of havoc for such a small insect, fleas are a nuisance for both humans and pets. They are able to jump high to gain access to food sources. These pests feed on the blood of humans, household pets, and various other animals.  Along with itching, swollen red bumps, skin irritation, and flea allergy dermatitis, fleas can transmit diseases with their piercing bites. Pets, like dogs and cats, can experience hair loss, skin irritation, and contract tapeworms from fleas.

Flea Prevention and Treatment

Prevention is always the first line of defense when dealing with fleas. However, if there is an infestation, there are remedies to get of these insects. First, you'll need to remove adult fleas from any infected people or animals using shampoos and treatments. Second, you'll need to thoroughly deep clean your home, including all bedding and linens, to rid your home of flea eggs and larva. A flea infestation can be challenging to tackle. Pest Management, Inc.’s team can effectively treat and eliminate the issue with our expert flea control methods.


Cockroaches Infestations

Like most bugs, roaches infest a home looking for food, water, and shelter. They will use pipes, drains, and exterior cracks and gaps to gain entry to their new home. Once inside, cockroaches grow their nests until overcrowding forces them out of hiding, and the homeowner realizes the problem.

Roach Prevention and Treatment

Keeping food in sealed containers and eliminating clutter helps prevent and control possible roach infestations. To treat a cockroach problem, our technicians administer rapid and effective treatment methods.

When Swatting Away Flies Isn’t Enough

Flies may not seem like anything more than a nuisance, but in reality, they can spread bacteria and viruses picked up from animal waste and decaying organic material. As adults, flies can painfully bite humans and other animals to feed on their blood.

Prevention and Treatment

The best prevention for these pests is sealing any entry points, like cracks and gaps, and maintaining consistent and proper waste removal. By reducing their access to food sources, you're limiting their breeding sites. If your home has a few lingering flies, you can use sticky flypapers/ribbons, fly food attractants, fly swatters, and some insecticides. However, if you have a large infestation, you should contact Pest Management, Inc. for help. Our professional pest control experts can apply residual insecticides for outside fly control.


Stinging Creatures: Scorpions

The hot, dry Central Texas weather makes for scorpions' ideal environment. Living throughout the state, but most common in the Texas Hill Country, is the striped bark scorpion. They can be found under rocks, paving stones, landscaping materials, or inside a home seeking out water and a cooler place to live. Getting up to 2 1/2" long, the striped bark scorpion is yellowish-tan with two dark stripes down its back. Along with this species of scorpion are 17 other species in Texas. They can be identified by their long tail with stinger that is used for defense or to paralyze prey. Scorpions are capable of stinging people, causing moderate reactions in most.

Prevention and Treatment

Sting severity depending on a person's reaction to the venom. Usually, an ice pack can be applied to reduce swelling and pain from a sting. Anyone stung should be monitored for allergic reactions for several hours. While rare, hives and breathing difficulty can occur from a scorpion sting. Pruning trees, keeping grass mowed, and filling in gaps and cracks can prevent scorpions from inhabiting inside and outside your home. Our skilled staff can also administer treatment options for your home

Crawling Creatures: Spiders

Weather, ease of access, and other insects can lead to a spider infestation of your home. Like the American house spider and wolf spider, most spiders are harmless; however, venomous spiders can be dangerous. The brown recluse spider's bite causes small blisters and swelling around the bite, and may result in restlessness, fever, difficulty sleeping, and infection. Another venomous spider in and around Texas is the black widow. If bitten, their venom is strong enough to compromise a person's nervous system. Symptoms from a bite include stomach cramps, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and fever.

Prevention and Treatment

Medical attention is strongly recommended if either of these spiders bites you. Cutting shrubs and bushes away from your home's exterior, sealing gaps and cracks, and removing excess debris piles from your home are ways to easily prevent a spider infestation. If your spider problem needs professional help, Pest Management, Inc. can provide reliable and comprehensive pest control services to eliminate spiders.
