The Problems With Pests In Your West Nashville Home
Along with an increase in temperature and outdoor fun, summer also means an increase in pest activity. Pests all across the country including those species common to West Nashville increase their activity in the summer while foraging for food, nesting, and breeding. Unfortunately, this also means more occurrences of pests making their way into West Nashville homes and businesses. More than a nuisance, pests can spread disease, harm personal property and cause serious damage to structures. Some common summer pests that you should be aware of include spiders, mosquitoes, termites, ticks and fleas, and ants.
Types Of Spiders In West Nashville
Spiders are a common pest problem throughout Middle Tennessee. Contrary to popular belief, most species of spiders pose no real danger to humans. Truth be told, spiders are beneficial outdoors as they control insect populations. But problems can start when they invade your home, garage, crawl space, basement, or shed looking for food and a dark, safe hiding spot. It can be quite challenging to find where spiders are hiding in your home, making them difficult to eliminate and control. While most spiders are harmless, you and your family should be aware of the venomous species, such as the brown recluse spider. These spiders are tan to dark brown in color with a dark, distinctive violin shape found behind their head. Their bodies range from ¼ -1/2 of an inch in length. A brown recluse’s venom will cause necrosis to the skin around the area of the bite that can lead to infection and ulceration of the area. If you are bitten by a brown recluse, seek medical attention immediately.

Mosquitoes are typically active during the summer months and, because they carry diseases that can be spread to humans and pets, they are considered to be dangerous.
These biting bugs can transmit West Nile virus and other serious diseases. They are also a threat to pets with their ability to transmit canine heartworms.
All-American offers mosquito control services that also combat outdoor flies, Japanese beetles, spiders, and box elder bugs.

Termite Control In West Nashville
Eastern subterranean termites live in large underground colonies and are responsible for an estimated five billion dollars worth of damages to buildings every year. Termites feed on the cellulose of plant materials (their main food source being soil, piles of leaves, and tree stumps), but will also make their way into homes and businesses where they typically end up behind walls and feed on your structural wood. They especially enjoy the taste of wood that has suffered water damage.) Like bed bugs, termite activity often increases during the summer months, but they are actively inflicting termite damage year-round. Let All-American Pest Control install a Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System, which treats existing termite infestations and protects against future termite activity. This system is environmentally-friendly and requires no drilling or trenching on your property. No matter the season, the Sentricon® System offers maximum termite protection for your home. Contact the experienced termite exterminators at All-American to learn more.
Get Rid Of Ants
Ants are inevitable in Tennessee. Unfortunately, some of the ants found in our state are not just nuisance pests. In recent years, fire ants have spread across the Southern states at an alarming rate. Fire ants are small in size, ranging from 1/10 – ¼ of an inch in length. They are reddish-brown to black in color. Fire ants are aggressive and will infect a painful sting to defend their nests. The carpenter ant is another type of ant common to our area. Carpenter ants are much larger in size ranging from 1/8 to over ½ of an inch in length. If carpenter ants make their way indoors, they will tunnel through structural wood to create nesting areas. They are harmless to people but can cause significant and costly damage to the structure of your home. All-American Pest Control's Perimeter Plus pest control program will give your home year-round protection against ants and 47 other common pests.
