Stink bugs are a pest that can damage plants and property, however, they are not known to be a threat to the structure of your home or to the health of your family. But, that doesn’t mean that you want to spend the winter with the thousands of stink bugs that will gather together to invade your home or business to escape the colder weather. Keeping stink bugs from finding their way inside your Linthicum home or business can be a challenge but, there are some things that you can do to help reduce your risk. Begin by inspecting your foundation, doors, and windows, make sure to fill in any holes, gaps, or cracks that you find and repair or replace loose or broken screens. Also, be sure to install door sweeps underneath all exterior doors. Next, inspect your exterior walls and replace any broken siding. Make sure that vents are covered and utility entrances don’t have gaps or spaces where stink bugs can sneak by. Finally, inspect your roof and repair or replace loose shingles or soft areas and install chimney caps on all chimneys. But, even with your best efforts, stink bugs can still invade. And when they do, make sure to contact the experts here at American Pest for your custom designed solution to control stink bugs on your property. To learn more, give us a call today.

Carpenter ants are a large species of ant that are black, red or a combination of these colors. But, it is not their size or their color that sets them apart from other species. The trait that makes carpenter ants so famous is their habit of burrowing into wood to create nesting sites. This habit can cause extensive damage to decks, porches, sheds, garages, homes, and businesses over time. While the damages done are similar to that of the termite, there is one major difference, termites eat the wood they infest and carpenter ants do not. They simply chew into the wood and push out the ‘frass’ as they go. The reproductive members of both the carpenter ant colony and the termite colony are winged which can sometimes lead to mistaken identity, but the other members of the carpenter ant colony look distinctly like ants. Linthicum home and business owners should be on the lookout for these destructive pests, and if you discover either the winged or the non-winged ants in or near your property, professional help is warranted. American Pest has effective carpenter ant control solutions to help control ant populations on your Linthicum property. Choices include our industry-leading year-round residential pest control programs. Preferred Care is effective at controlling carpenter ant populations and can keep them from becoming an issue inside the walls of your home where they can remain active even in the cold winter months. Our ProCare program can help protect your commercial facility. To learn more about American Pest’s carpenter ant control solutions, contact us today.
