Termites can live a long time without anyone knowing they’ve infested a building. Drywood termites burrow deep in wooden structures while subterranean termites go underground. Either way, these little buggers can cause some serious damage even before you know they’re there. 

Here are some major warning signs that warrant attention: 

  • Wood that sounds hollow when you tap on it
  • Drooping or discolored drywall
  • Buckling laminate or wooden floorboards
  • Squeaky floorboards
  • Windows or doors that stick
  • Peeling paint with no water damage
  • Pinpoint holes in the drywall
  • Maze-like patterns in floorboards, walls, or furniture
  • Piles of wings that look like fish scales
  • Piles of dry wood termite pellets that look like pepper or salt. 
  • Termites swarming on the property

All of these indicate the not-so-obvious and obvious presence of termites. If you suspect termites, call an exterminator that specializes in residential pest control like Amco Ranger. They will evaluate your property and determine the best course of action. 

Bed Bugs

Bedbugs hide nearly as well as termites. To survive, baby bed bugs need bloodmeal. So you may actually experience bed bug bites before you see the bugs. 

Even then, you may not know you have bedbugs since not all people react to bed bug bites. 

Furthermore, bedbugs can proliferate quickly. They grow by as much as three generations in a year. 

You will not be able to see the juvenile bed bugs, but adult bed bugs are big enough to see with the naked eye.

Fully grown bed bugs are fairly large, the size of an apple seed. They’re wingless, flat, and reddish-brown. They swell up when they’ve finished eating and change to a bright red color. 

Look in the following places for bed bugs: 

  • Bedside tables
  • Loose wallpaper or paneling
  • Headboard
  • Ceiling junctions
  • Wall junctions
  • Creases and crevices in your mattress and along your baseboard
  • Creases in your pillows

Since bedbugs need food, they congregate where humans are. This is why you’re most likely to see them on a mattress or pillow. You also will find their feces as evidence of their presence. 

Amco Ranger knows how to deal with bed bugs so you can sleep soundly again. If you see these symptoms, then contact Amco Ranger. 

Other Services

Though Amco Ranger specializes in termites and bedbugs, they handle all kinds of pests. Here are a few of the services that Amco Ranger offers to its clients. 

Nuisance Wildlife

Wildlife belongs in the wild. So when they show up on your property, they will cause problems. They just don’t know how to respect domestic life. 

We have extensive experience dealing with raccoons, possums, and other wildlife that cause property damage, pose health risks, and create stress. Our techniques will remove the animal and prevent the animal from bothering you again. 

We use humane animal control practices. So if you’re worried that your pest will sustain an injury, rest easy. We know what we’re doing. 

Mole Management

Moles cause damage. Amco Ranger understands how to handle this little destructive creature. We use a variety of techniques. 

Here are the basic steps we take: 

  1. Inspect the area where you suspect a mole infestation
  2. Identify the active tunnels so we can treat them
  3. Treat the area with a proven bait or trap
  4. Visit the area again to monitor progress and prevent further infestations

Moles can completely destroy your lawn if you do not get a handle on them. Amco Ranger has designed a Mole Management Program that brings us back to your home regularly. We will find the moles and eliminate them no matter how many return visits we need to make. 

Lawn Care Services 

Amco Ranger technicians understand the importance of your lawn. Thus we offer second-to-none lawn service. We will control your weeds and fertilize your lawn so you have a beautiful, green yard once again. 

Here is the range of services our lawn care division performs: 

  • Weed control
  • Aeration
  • Dethatch
  • Fertilization
  • Soil Sterilization
  • Seeding

As you can see, Amco Ranger not only eliminates pests, but they take care of your entire property. 

Attic Insulation

Amco Ranger also will take care of your attic if pests have wreaked havoc on it. Pests will damage insulation and create an unsanitary environment in the attic. 

Amco uses InCide Pest Control Insulation. This unique insulation contains sodium polyborate, an effective pesticide.

This ingredient keeps insects at bay and prevents infestations. Insects that ingest even a small amount of InCide will die immediately. Here are the perks of InCide in your attic: 

  • Odorless
  • Reduces your heating and cooling costs
  • Does not itch
  • Flame resistant
  • Protects your home from pests
  • Reduces air infiltration
  • Meets federal standards

Furthermore, InCide comes with a product warranty. So if you’re not happy with it, you’re covered. The active ingredients are safe for pets and humans and will not cause annoying side effects.

It also resists mold and mildew growth. The fire retardant nature of the insulation also slows down a fire should one break out in your home.
