Mice also carry diseases and are very dirty critters. We recommend sealing any areas that mice may use to get inside your home – Check crawlspaces, basements and garages, etc. for small openings, cracks and gaps. And, remember, mice can squeeze through openings the size of a dime. Be sure that you have your crawlspace door closed tightly and sealed. Keep any food sources away from your home such as trash cans that could draw the mice to your home.

How can I make sure that I do not get termites? How do I keep termites out of my house?

Unfortunately, termites are quite active in Sussex and Kent county. Our area has high moisture and humidity levels in which subterranean termites thrive. We find that the best way to deter termites from entering your home is to be proactive. Regularly check for leakage around and under your home and look for standing water near the home and eliminate the source immediately. Keep bushes and foliage trimmed back away from the home. Keep gutters cleaned. Remove all wood piles away from the home as well as leaves and debris. Maintain proper drainage away from your house. Keep humidity levels down in your home (the use of an under-home dehumidifier is very effective at bringing humidity to a healthy level). Be on the look out for what is referred to as termite tubes and for termite swarm/swarmer activity, which are clear signs of termite activity either in or near the home. Inspect your home routinely for early termite detection. Due to the very secretive nature of termites (they do not like to be seen), we recommend getting annual termite inspections by an experienced and trained pest control professional such as Integrity Pest Solutions. The inspections we offer are thorough and are conducted by a certified technician who has been trained in the habits of termites, as well as in locating signs of termite activity for early detection and early treatment. Another option is having a Preventative Termite Treatment completed around your home, which offers peace of mind to homeowners and prevents termite activity before it can happen in your home. Integrity Pest Solutions offers both the Preventative Termite Treatment, as well as provides guaranteed termite treatments in the event of active termites in your home. Under-home Dehumidifiers to keep humidity levels within the home down are also recommended and are available from Integrity Pest Solutions. Termite Pre-treatments are recommended for new construction homes, additions and garages to prevent termite activity. All termite treatments provided by Integrity Pest Solutions includes a one year warranty.

How much damage do termites do to my home?
Subterranean Termites, found in Sussex and Kent County, is estimated to cause over five billion dollars worth of damage annually to homes, according to the NPMA (National Pest Management Association). A colony of these termites can grow as large as one million or to the size of a football field. Depending on the length of time termites have been in the home and the size of the termite colony, termites can be very destructive to your home. They eat cellulose, approximately 10 to 15 pounds a week, which is in the wood that homes are constructed, and they will basically eat a home from the inside out, if left unchecked. The actual cost of damage caused by subterranean termites is hard to estimate and is dependent upon how long they were in the home before treating. The damage can range from small repairs to major structural damage to a home. Homeowner insurance also does not usually cover termite damage and repairs. Guaranteed comprehensive Termite Treatments are offered by Integrity Pest Solutions if you find that you have termite activity in your house. We also offer Guaranteed Preventative Termite Treatments and Pre-Construction Termite treatments for new homes, new additions and new garages. Discounted Group Preventative Treatments are available for Home Owner Associations, Communities, and Developments.
Do cockroaches cause health issues? Are cockroaches dangerous to my family?

Absolutely! Unfortunately, the presence of cockroaches can cause allergies and even asthma to the occupants of your home. Allergens including cockroach saliva, cockroach droppings and even dead cockroaches can trigger allergies to you and your family. German Cockroaches are also carriers of disease such as salmonella and E.coli. They cause gastroenteritis, which is food poisoning, and diarrhea to homeowners. The bacteria is spread by the roaches feet and body onto your food and surfaces that you may come in contact with or eat. A German Cockroach population grows rather rapidly if not addressed in the earlier stages and often becomes unmanageable without proper treatment by a pest control professional. Integrity Pest Solutions is here to help and offers comprehensive cockroach treatment programs.

How do I get rid of fleas on my pet and in my home?

Fleas multiply very quickly and make your pet miserable within no time. In order to get rid of fleas, the flea cycle must be broken which includes the eggs, larva, pupa, as well as adult fleas. Where this becomes difficult is even when you get rid of the adult fleas, the eggs will then hatch and in no time repopulate and reinfest. Flea infestations take a lot of work from you. The first step is put your pet on a veterinarian approved flea program, which should help eliminate adult fleas that are on your pet. The second step is to vacuum, vacuum, vacuum and then vacuum. Also, sweep and mop uncarpeted areas. Vacuuming removes larva and eggs, as well as stimulates the eggs to hatch which can then be vacuumed up. Keep vacuuming every day for a minimum of two weeks. Be sure to empty the vacuumed contents outside of your home. Wash all pet bedding and other areas that pets have been in contact with such as comforters, blankets, etc. Vacuum and clean furniture that pets have been on. Continue the flea vet plan on your pet, especially if your pet goes outside and is exposed to possible fleas out of the home. For the most successful removal of fleas, begin the above process as soon as you notice fleas and before the flea population grows out of control. If your flea infestation does become out of control, Integrity Pest Solutions offers a two step treatment with immediate results against active adult fleas and larva and a secondary residual effect against the flea eggs so as they hatch and come in contact with the treatment, growth impairment is caused.

What is the difference between termites and ants?

The easiest way to identify a flying or carpenter ant from a termite is their body. An ant has a three section body, a head, thorax and abdomen; While a termite only has what appears to be a two piece body (however, they actually have a head, thorax and abdomen but it is much harder to distinguish). Termites have straight antennas and the ant antennae is bent. In addition, the wings of a termite are the same, uniform size, while flying ants have wings of two different sizes. Both the termite and the carpenter ant cause damage to your home. At Integrity Pest Solutions, we will help properly identify any pest concern that you may not sure be of and offer experienced, successful solutions including both flying/carpenter ants and guaranteed termite treatments.
