It’s no wonder everyone is moving to Fuquay-Varina. With plenty of hiking trails, an easy commute to vibrant cities, beautiful beaches, and rugged mountains, there are plenty of reasons why our population has doubled in the past decade. The downside to this growth is an ever-increasing pest population.
Pests are called pests for good reason. They are animals that we don’t want living near our homes or properties, and yet the reason that they are pests is that they have the exact opposite goals in mind. Pests look to human properties to meet their needs for food, water, and shelter. The more people you have, the more targets they see. Luckily, the professionals at Pest & Termite Consultants are keeping pace with Fuquay-Varina’s ever-growing population. Give us a call today to find out more about how we can safeguard your property from unwanted pests.

How Bad Is It To Have Carpenter Bees Around My Fuquay-Varina Home?
Bees sometimes get a bad rap. With life-threatening allergies on the rise, there’s good reason for people to be fearful of bees of any kind. However, bees aren’t all bad. They are a central part of the pollination process that is critical to much of our food supply.
That being said, carpenter bees are a double-edged sword. Not only do they pose the threat of dangerous stings, but they also threaten the structural integrity of our homes as they tunnel through the wood inside. So while carpenter bees play an important role in the natural world, they have no place on our properties.
If you suspect carpenter bees are nesting on your Fuquay-Varina property, call the professionals at Pest & Termite Consultants and find out everything you need to know about our stinging insect control options.
Four Simple Yet Effective Ant Control Tips For Fuquay-Varina Properties
There are more than 10,000 known species of ants around the world. Luckily, only a handful of them is common in Fuquay-Varina. But when ants invade, it can feel like all 10,000 have descended on your home, and in a lot of cases that could actually be an understatement. While we may not have the full variety of ants that are found around the world, colonies that are allowed to thrive here can reach 10 to 50 times that number of individual ants.
Keep ants from growing out of control on your Fuquay-Varina property by following these four simple but effective steps:
- Limit food access: Ants are looking for an easy meal and it is up to you to deny them. Store food in covered containers, keep fruit in the fridge instead of on the counter and don’t leave pet food unattended.
- Keep up on maintenance: All that work to safeguard your groceries will be for nothing if ants just grab a free meal from your trash can or underneath the cabinets. Make sure to cover both indoor and outdoor trash receptacles, regularly clean floors, paying close attention to areas under appliances and in other hard-to-reach places, and don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink.
- Master moisture control: Ants don’t just need food, they also need water. Limit their access by ensuring drainage is working properly, fixing plumbing issues promptly, and using dehumidifiers as needed.
- Make it a challenge: The smallest gap or crack in an exterior wall can seem like a superhighway to a colony of hungry ants. Don’t allow them such easy access! Seal cracks and gaps with caulking, install weatherstripping and door sweeps and keep screens in good repair.
If despite these tactics, ants make their way past your defenses, it’s time to call Pest & Termite Consultants. We can eliminate ants from your property and ensure they don’t return. Call today to find out more about our affordable, effective services.
