Minimizing mosquito exposure in the Quad Cities
Everyone knows how annoying mosquitoes are, but few truly understand the risks associated with mosquito bites. Mosquitoes can spread dangerous diseases and are, in fact, the deadliest animal in the world. If your Quad Cities property is plagued by these tiny creatures, it’s important to reduce their populations. This will make your yard a more pleasant place to spend time and also reduce your risk of contracting a mosquito-borne illness.
The best way to reduce mosquitoes on your property on your own is to eliminate as many areas of excess moisture as possible. Mosquitoes require standing water to breed, and even the smallest amount of water can be a mosquito breeding ground. Wet sections of your lawn, clogged gutters, children’s toys that might collect rainwater, etc. are all things that mosquitoes can use for breeding. Reducing shaded areas reduces mosquito numbers as well as keeping the grass cut short.
If you need your property to be nearly mosquito-free, contact Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators. We will identify and treat breeding areas and will also treat the areas where adult mosquitoes rest during the hottest parts of the day. This eliminates mosquitoes in all stages of development and greatly reduces their populations around your Quad Cities home.
Stop pest birds from destroying your Quad Cities business
When pest birds such as pigeons, sparrows, or starlings take up residence in or around your business, they can contaminate food and spread disease through contact and their excrement. They can damage buildings and landscaping with their nesting and eating habits. Birds can injure people if they become aggressive when customers or employees try to enter or exit the building.
These are not small problems, nor can they be ignored. The longer you leave pest birds to their own devices, the worse the problem will become. Fortunately, Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators offers the Quad Cities bird exclusion and elimination services. We provide a wide variety of bird control services including:
Bird aversion fogging
Visual and audio deterrents
Specialized cleaning and sanitation
Termites: The most damaging pest in the Quad Cities
The Quad Cities most damaging pests are tiny, but they are big on destruction. Termites cause billions of dollars in damage to homes and businesses in the United States every year. They don’t make enough noise for humans to hear them, and they rarely come out above ground or out from the walls of your home. This is why termites are called "silent destroyers".
It’s rare for homeowners to notice that termites have gotten inside until the damage has become extensive. If you see walls start to bulge, ceilings sagging, or floors buckling, it could be due to termite damage. More subtle signs of a termite infestation include:
Seeing termite swarmers or their discarded wings.
Noticing mud tubes along your foundation walls, inside or outside.
Seeing grooves along the outside of wood or holes in the wood, especially wood that is in direct contact with soil or that is hidden away, such as in a crawlspace.
Since these signs of termites are easy to miss, getting an inspection by a professional who is trained in what to look for is a wise decision. Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators perform interior and exterior inspections, looking for signs of active termites as well as areas in and around your home that might show signs of termite activity. Prevention is the most effective way to ensure that termites don’t get into your home. Quik-Kill offers several termite control options to help prevent termites and/or take care of an active infestation. Schedule service today!
