Occasional Pest Invaders Definition & Control of Beetles, Centipedes, Crickets, Earwigs, Millipedes, Mites, Pillpugs, Silverfish


Most homeowners are familiar with the constant string of pests that are relentlessly attempting to gain access to their homes. These year-round pests include cockroaches, ants, spiders and rodents among many others. However, there are a few occasional invaders that are not common and homeowners are unaware that they even exist. Examples of occasional invaders include beetles, centipedes, crickets, earwigs, millipedes, mites, pillbugs, silverfish, sowbugs. If these pests successfully gain access to your home without being noticed, they can end up causing you some problems. A-Tex Pest Management is familiar with all occasional invaders and will eliminate their presence from your home, and make sure that they do not return. Our technicians are skilled and experienced in locating exactly where these occasional invaders are gaining access into your home and eliminate them immediately.

Silverfish are Occasional Invaders that Can Get into Your Home

One occasional invader that can get into your home is the silverfish. Silverfish are small, wingless insects and are usually silver or blue colored with a scaly appearance; which is where they get their name from. The most common areas to find silverfish crawling around include attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens and showers. Silverfish require humidity to survive, which is why these areas are most common for finding silverfish. Silverfish can be difficult to get rid of once they are inside your home. The technicians at A-Tex Pest Management are familiar with dealing with silverfish and will have them out of your home in no time at all. If you notice silverfish crawling around in your home, contact A-Tex Pest Control today.

Cricket Chirping Sounds Can Make it Impossible to Sleep at Night!

One of the most annoying occasional invaders is the cricket. Crickets may seem harmless and even fun to watch sometimes, but once you have discovered that cricket is inside of your home, you will feel differently. Crickets do not pose a health hazard, but they are an extreme nuisance with their chirping noise and presence. Colonies of crickets that live inside garbage piles can successfully migrate into houses, causing homeowners great distress. Crickets also have the ability to damage fabrics and food storage as well. Lying awake at night and hearing the noise of cricket over and over again can make it extremely difficult to sleep, and crickets are not easy to find either. If you are hearing crickets inside of your home, contact A-Tex Pest Management today.

What do Pill Bugs Eat? Your Vegetation

Most people would say that they have never heard of a pill bug, but this occasional invader often goes by another name, the roly-poly. The pill bug lives in wet locations and is often found living under damp objects or inside of organic garbage. A pill bug’s diet consists mostly of rotting vegetation, but they have also been known to eat up healthy gardens as well. Pillbugs have a life span of around two years and they are nocturnal, becoming most active during the night. The best way to keep pillbugs away from your home is to keep the areas around your home clean and dry and eliminate food sources like plant debris. If you notice pill bugs in or around your home, contact A-Tex Pest Management today.
