In the spring, summer, and early fall, Derry yards can be alive with activity. Perhaps you've noticed—squirrels climbing trees, birds sitting on branches, ants on your driveway, bugs crawling on the ground, wasps in your landscaping, and more. All of the critters that live in your yard and explore the exterior of your home have the potential to get inside.

Some of the pests in your yard can get into your home and stay permanently. This can present many problems. These problems are even greater for business owners. They can severely impact the financial health of a business. Let's take a look at how residential and commercial pest control in Rockingham County can give you proactive protection from pest problems and guard against property damage and pest-borne diseases.

Home Pest Control In Derry, NH

There is a philosophy that has developed regarding pest control. It was once considered appropriate to exterminate pests when problems arose. But over the last century, there has been a move toward pest maintenance. Homeowners have found great benefits from having ongoing pest control. Here are a few benefits to consider:

  • It is far better to find termites early. If they're allowed to secretly damage your property over the course of years, it can be costly to repair this damage. Proactive termite control stops termites and protects your property investment.

  • There are many pests that spread diseases. Some diseases have the potential to be serious. If you live in Derry, you know about Lyme disease. It is far better to be proactive about eliminating ticks in your yard before they bite you or get into your home and bite you.

  • We have several pests that can damage your stuff. When they get inside, they can sometimes be a nightmare to control. Ongoing pest control keeps carpet beetles, silverfish, clothing moths, and other destructive pests out.

A high-quality residential pest control program gives your property and perimeter ongoing protection. This reduces pest activity, prevents bites and stings in your yard, and keeps outdoor pests from becoming indoor pests.

 

Commercial Pest Control In Derry, NH

The philosophy of pest maintenance used for residential pest control is also true of commercial pest control. While the pests may be different, business owners count on Rockingham County pest control to guard their business against the harmful impacts pests can have. Here are a few you might want to consider:

  • Termites are a threat to any property owner. At Big Blue Bug Solutions, we know all about termites. We're the home of the big blue bug. You wouldn't think that termites would be a problem in New England, but they are. These insects establish their nests underground and, in most cases, below the frost line. In spring, they come up from their tunnels to continue to feed on wood and other materials composed of cellulose. Termite control prevents termites from silently damaging your business for years.

  • Some pests can contaminate food. This can damage the reputation of a business, force a product recall, and in some cases lead businesses to close their doors. Proactive commercial pest control keeps these pests out in many clever and scientific ways, such as with the installation of Insect Light Traps (ILTs). These are placed strategically near doors and other key areas to take down dirty house flies.

  • Some pests damage stored items. If you own a storage facility, the last thing you want is a carpet beetle, silverfish, or rodent infestation. It is one thing when pests damage the things you own, but quite another when they damage your customers' belongings.

At Big Blue Bug Solutions, we help Derry businesses get a plan in place to proactively address the threats that are unique in their industries. We've been doing this for over 80 years. We have the experience to help you find the right services for your Derry business.

 

What Everyone Ought To Know About Derry Ticks & Lyme Disease

The disease known as Lyme is spread primarily by deer ticks (also known as black-legged ticks). These ticks don't live inside homes and are not able to complete their life cycle indoors, but they can still be indoor pests. They're brought inside by dogs, cats, and rodents. But, whether they become an indoor pest problem or you keep getting them on you while you're out in your yard, ticks present a problem that should definitely be taken care of by a professional.

Here are a few ways a tick control professional can help:

  • Ticks come into your yard on wildlife. Steps can be taken to manage wildlife.

  • Ticks develop in landscape vegetation and in shaded spaces. Appropriate treatments in these key areas can prevent tick development.

  • If you have ticks in your home, a professional can perform a detailed inspection and apply appropriate measures to target and address the problem.

Lyme disease can have acute and chronic symptoms. We strongly recommend that you visit the CDC on the web and learn about the risks associated with Lyme disease so that you are better able to protect yourself and your family.

 

A Quick Guide To Effective Ant Control For Your Derry Home

Ants are the most common pests we deal with. While they're not dangerous, like ticks, they can make you sick when they get into your home. While they're not destructive like termites, certain ants can do a significant amount of damage if they're not caught early. Use these tips to get rid of ants and keep them out of your home:

  • Keep trash in covered receptacles. Make sure to get the trash to the curb weekly. Clean receptacles if they start to have an odor.

  • Remove leaves and other organic debris routinely during the fall months so that there is no accumulation of debris.

  • Move woodpiles away from your home and consider putting wood on an elevated platform.

  • Replace weatherstripping, door sweeps, and screens that are damaged or old.

  • Replace rotting wood.

  • Use a caulking gun to fill in holes and gaps in your exterior.

  • Get year-round pest control from a licensed professional.

If you live in Derry, contact Big Blue Bug Solutions for residential pest control that keeps ants and other pests out of your home all year long. Life is so much better without ants in your home.
