Is It Too Late To Protect My Iron Station Home From Termites?


Termites are ant-like insects that feed on cellulose found in wood. In doing so, they destroy the wood in the process. While this process is beneficial to the ecosystem out in the wild, it means costly damage when it takes place in a home. Therefore, it’s important always to be prepared for termites.

Termite infestations are hard to detect. As such, the best method of protecting your home is with preventative termite control from Lake Norman Home Services. We’ll come to your home and perform an extensive inspection to identify any termites that might be living on the premises. If no termites are found, we begin with preventative measures to limit your exposure to termite infestations.

It’s never too late for professional termite control from Lake Norman Home Services. Contact us today to learn more about our termite control services.


Why Fleas In Your Iron Station Home Are Worse Than You May Think


Although they are minuscule in size, fleas can cause big problems for Iron Station homeowners. These small parasites can get into homes while riding on pets or wild animals that come onto the property. Once inside, they can spread out, making them difficult to eliminate. What’s worse, fleas pose many threats to both humans and our pets. These include:

  • Plague
  • Typhus
  • Cat Scratch Disease
  • Tapeworm

As mentioned, fleas are dangerous to both humans and our pets, so effective flea control is imperative if you want to keep your family safe. Contact the professionals here at Lake Norman Home Services for all of your flea control needs.

Why Rodents In Iron Station Are Dangerous, Destructive Pests

Rodents can pose significant dangers besides the extensive damage they are known for causing. Here are reasons why these scavengers are considered dangerous and destructive pests.

First, rodents such as rats and mice are known carriers of various illnesses like salmonella and leptospira. Not only can they contaminate your food and surfaces with their excrement, putting you at risk, but they can also trigger allergic reactions and worsen asthma symptoms.

Also, rodents have strong teeth that continuously grow. They gnaw on materials like wood and electrical wires to keep them in check. This behavior can lead to structural damage, electrical issues, and fire hazards.

And finally, rodents can contaminate your food storage areas and pantries. Consuming food full of pathogens can lead to serious foodborne illnesses.

Rodents reproduce rapidly, with a short gestation period and large litters. A small infestation can quickly escalate into a significant problem if not addressed promptly. 

The best way to deal with a rodent infestation is to use professional services to eliminate them while preventing future infestations. Call us today to learn how we can rid your home of rodents for good with science-driven rodent control in Iron Station.

Guide To Avoiding Stung By Wasps In Iron Station

Wasps can be spotted buzzing around properties in Iron Station, especially in the summertime when people are spending time outdoors and flowers are in bloom. These pests can be exceptionally territorial and even aggressive if they feel threatened. Here are a few ways to avoid getting stung and taking back your summer:

  • Start with landscaping. Wasps are drawn to colorful, sweet plants, and while they are important to the ecosystem, there are other plants that you can use to repel wasps. Those include mint, gardenia, lavender, and citronella.
  • Host parties responsibly. Whether you’re eating a casual meal outside or are hosting a family celebration in the yard, there are a few key steps to take. Clean down the grill thoroughly after you’ve finished using it, always cover dishes between uses, and routinely remove trash.
  • Make yourself unappealing. Avoid wearing bright prints and colors, skip perfume, and don’t provoke wasps.
  • Decorate the yard. Mimic wasps nest by hanging paper lanterns. This may redirect these territorial invaders. 

For ultimate protection from wasps, call Lake Norman Home Services for stinging insect prevention. 

What Types Of Ants Live Around Iron Station?

Several types of ants exist in Iron Station; some are more destructive than others. Here are some of the most common ones we encounter during home inspections:

  • Army ants: Army ants are nomadic, highly organized, and aggressive insects known for their large and formidable colonies. They are a type of social insect that relies on group foraging and can strip entire areas of prey, making them a powerful and efficient force in the animal kingdom.
  • Argentine ants: Argentine ants, native to South America, are invasive pests that have spread to many parts of the world. They are small, brown ants known for their cooperative behavior, forming vast supercolonies that can contain millions of individuals and outcompete native ant species.
  • Big-headed ants: They get their name from the significant size difference between them and the smaller worker ants. They prefer sugary food, and we often see them foraging in kitchens for sweets. Their colonies have multiple queens and can create extensive networks.
  • White-footed ants: These small, pale-colored ants strongly prefer sweet foods. They are adept at nesting anywhere from trees to our homes and are known to form supercolonies that are challenging to eradicate.

These four ant species are only a small fraction of the diverse fauna in Iron Station. These tiny insects play crucial roles in the ecosystem, but effective pest control techniques are essential to control their populations when they take over our houses.

Surviving Spider Season In Iron Station

As summer fades into early fall, Iron Station enters what’s known as ‘spider season.’ While spiders are active all year long, they become even more active as their pest prey becomes scarce. It’s not uncommon to find more webs than usual around the sides of your building or notice a few prowling predators like wolf spiders making their way into your home.

Living through Iron Station’s spider season is uncomfortable at best. However, it’s possible to control their influx of numbers and keep your property (mostly) arachnid-free – starting with some expert prevention tips.

First, do what you can to seal up holes around the house, including any gaps near entry points. We always recommend using waterproof caulking for the ultimate protection against spiders.

Next, remove any brush near the sides of the home where spiders could be living and thriving. Bushes, shrubs, and tall vegetation should be trimmed back or cut for optimal results.

Finally, you need to get rid of any spider attractant factors, including secondary pest activity. You can call the team at Lake Norman Home Services for a full inspection from our pest control company.
