April 2014 News: Seasonal Guide to Termites
In this month’s edition of the Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control news: A Seasonal Guide to Termites, Must Love Spiders (or maybe not!), Commercial Bed Bug Training, and Clegg’s Recognized by BBB.
A Seasonal Guide to Termites
We’re sorry to tell you this: termite season is once again here. When the weather starts to warm again in the spring, people begin noticing signs of termites and our phone begins ringing. In some cases, homeowners find signs of termites when they begin sprucing up their homes. In others, termites may swarm inside the home or around the foundation. As soon as you think you might have a termite issue, you need to call a professional and have your home inspected.
The most common type of termite found in North Carolina is the subterranean termite. These insects live in colonies underground and eat cellulose products like wood and paper. You may find damage to wood beams in your crawlspace or even to baseboards. You may also see swarms of termites around mating season in the spring and summer or find piles of discarded termite wings around windows.
Learn the signs you might have termites and what you should do about it in our latest article, A Seasonal Guide to Termites. If you do find signs of termites, call us right away at (888) MR. CLEGG to schedule your free termite inspection!
Must Love Spiders
We can honestly say we don’t hear too many of our customers say they love spiders. In fact, most people are afraid of arachnids. While most spiders are harmless, there are a few in North Carolina that are venomous, including the black widow and brown recluse. Of the two, the bite of a brown recluse is likely to cause more damage to humans. These spiders prefer dark areas, so if you encounter them inside your house it may be in your garage, attic or storage area. Learn how to identify a brown recluse and what to do if you find one in your house.
Commercial Bed Bug Training
If you have a business that is at increased risk of exposure to bed bugs, Clegg’s offers periodic bed bug classes to train your employees on how to deal with these determined pests. The session covers identifying bed bugs as well as action steps to take if the bugs are discovered. If you would like to learn more, please contact us via email or call 1-888-672-5344.
