Simple Steps to Minimize Bugs & Pests

Preventing Termites This Spring

Don’t Let Termites Ruin Your Home

Preventing termites is the job of SWAT Services

Look for mud tubes around your home.

The arrival of Spring is usually welcomed with open arms, but warmer temperatures also stir unwanted pests, and termites, into activity. It’s not uncommon for a termite infestation to show up in the weeks following cold winter temperatures. And preventing termites from invading your home is what SWAT Services is all about. SWAT wants you and your family to be well informed about these destructive pests so they don’t start forming colonies in or around your home and end up costing you money.

Termites Are a Costly Problem

Every year termites combine to cause over 5 billion dollars of damage. Unfortunately, termite damage is not a claim that is typically covered by your homeowners insurance policy. Yet, damage from termites is five times more likely to occur to your home than damage from fire!

Mosquitoes are on the Way!

Preventing mosquitoes starts with eliminating water sources.In case you haven’t noticed, there’s been a lot of rain lately. And while the rain is good for our plants and landscaping, that rain also presents some future problems as it relates to mosquitoes. We’re interested in preventing mosquitoes.

 

To prevent mosquitoes in your yard this year, the first line of defense is to eliminate any standing water that remains after periods of rain. Standing water provides opportunities for mosquitoes to breed. In fact, standing water may even cause previously dormant mosquito eggs to hatch!

What Customers Say ...

“Chuck from Swat Services has been what my kids call "the bug guy" for 18 years! He is always full of life and enthusiasm. He knows me and my family and actually WANTS to know how we are doing. I love having my pest control handled by a friend and not just a random guy who changes each visit. Chuck is amazing and I hope he continues coming to our home.”
