Murfreesboro Flying Termite Control
Spring is termite swarming season in Middle Tennessee. At The Bug Man headquarters in Murfreesboro, reports of termite swarms roll in every spring. That's because these pesky cellulose-eating insects wake up when rain saturates the ground and soil temperatures reach 70 degrees. Large groups of flying termites emerge from their homes to swarm, mate and establish new colonies.
Termite Swarms in Murfreesboro
Termite swarms are an indication of a mature termite colony that is ready to expand. Clouds of insects resembling flying ants aren't the only warning sign. Local homeowners should also look for dropped wings and mud tubes that extend up foundations and walls. These are also important red flags. If you've seen flying insects in or around your home, here's how to tell if they're flying ants or termites. Termites have two pairs of transparent wings that are of an equal shape and size. Flying ants also have two pairs of wings, but the foremost pair is larger. Termites have cylindrical bodies while ants have narrow wasp-like waists.

Smyrna Pest & Termite Elimination from The Bug Man
Dealing with pests isn’t easy, and unfortunately, their numbers tend to increase dramatically as the weather warms up. At The Bug Man, we treat a variety of pest infestations, including ants, termites, mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and roaches.
Ants are common household pests, and they can easily slip through the tiniest cracks to enter your home and forage for food. If they discover food in your home, ants can be difficult to eradicate. In addition, carpenter ants can cause structural damage to your home.
Termites feed on wood, and they can enter your home through tiny cracks and crevices. If they aren’t discovered early enough, they are capable of causing major structural damage to your home.
Mosquito Control in Smyrna
Mosquitoes dine on the blood of humans and animals, and they need to find a source of still water in order to lay their eggs. One of the best ways to discourage their presence is to eliminate standing water from your home and yard. Because they can transmit several serious diseases, mosquitoes are considered to be a public health risk.
Fleas & Tick Management
Fleas typically feed on the blood of animals, but they can also dine on humans and can transmit several harmful diseases. To successfully eliminate fleas from your home, both your pets and your home must be treated. Ticks are small parasites that feed on both animal and human blood, and they can transmit several serious diseases. Ticks enter your home by attaching themselves to you or your pets.
Roaches can squeeze through small cracks in the walls of your home in order to find food. As they move through your home, they can spread disease, contaminate your food and trigger asthma attacks.
If you suspect that you have any of these pests in your Smyrna home, professional treatment is your best option. Call us for a free quote today.
Mt. Juliet Pest & Termite Control
An insect infestation can quickly make a property unpleasant and even uninhabitable. Mt. Juliet residents dealing with insects and other pests can count on The Bug Man's professional exterminators. Our efficient and effective service has made us a favorite in Rutherford and Wilson Counties for years.
Fleas and Ticks in Mt. Juliet
Many of Tennessee's insect species spread diseases when they suck the blood of their hosts. Fleas transmit a variety of viral and bacterial infections to pets and their owners, and they can actually give household pets the same plague that caused the Black Death in Medieval Europe. Lone star ticks, found throughout Tennessee, are vectors for southern tick-associated rash illness and several bacterial infections. Mosquito bites are the most dangerous of all. The most notorious mosquito-borne illness is West Nile virus, but they also transmit malaria, parasites, bacteria, and many other infections.
Insect species without infectious bites can still spread diseases. Cockroaches, for example, are extremely unsanitary and transmit illnesses like dysentery and typhoid. They can also contaminate food with their feces. Cockroach feces gives off an unpleasant smell and triggers allergic reactions in many people. Ants leave equally unsanitary droppings, and they drag contaminants with them as they crawl on the floor. Foods and surfaces that are infested with ants or cockroaches should be viewed as a significant health risk.
Termite Control in Mt. Juliet
Termites are generally not harmful to humans or pets, but they cause some of the costliest property damage of any pest. Termites nourish themselves by feeding on wood, including the timber used to build structures. These insects feed continuously, and a sizable colony can hollow out several pounds of wood in a matter of days.

LaVergne Pest & Termite Control from The Bug Man
Pests may make your skin crawl, but the damage that can be done by insects including ants, termites and roaches goes beyond that creepy feeling. At The Bug Man, we can take care of all your pest control needs.
Common Pests in LaVergne
Heat and humidity bring out a variety of pests in the area that are capable of causing damage to a home and may even threaten the health of people living in an infested home. Termites and carpenter ants are known for their preference for nesting in wood structures. To establish a nest within the wood, these destructive pests chew through the structure. It is common for homeowners with a termite or carpenter ant infestation to shell out thousands of dollars for repairs.
LaVergne Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes and ticks are two pests that are associated with the summer months. These blood-sucking pests are a nuisance, but the biggest problem with mosquitoes and ticks is the health hazard that they pose. Both insects are capable of spreading disease through their bites.
Homeowners may worry about their pets when it comes to fleas, but the itching and possibility of transmitting disease through these parasites can affect humans as well. Another disease spreading insect that invades homes is the cockroach. Roaches pick up diseases on their legs as they move throughout a home. Getting rid of the health risk requires extensive pest control treatments that go beyond simply killing the pest.

Murfreesboro Brown Recluse Spider Control
In the Murfreesboro area, two spiders pose a real health concern to homeowners. One is the Black Widow and the other is the Brown Recluse Spider. Outdoors, spiders are actually benificial, they help keep other pest populations under control. However, when spiders move into and around the home, they can cause concern and potentially bite. The brown recluse spiders are one of the two dangerous types of spiders in MIddle Tennessee. The Bug Man technicians are trained to properly identify and treat spider infestations.
The Dangers of Brown Recluse Spiders
Yes, the brown recluse spider can be dangerous. But, the spider does not hunt humans. Most bites occur when the spider is pressed against the skin inside clothing or rolled upon while sleeping in bed. You can take steps to help avoid this from happening. Keep all bedding off the floor, move beds a few inches away from the walls and curtains, shake out clothes and shoes before dressing, and place insect glue traps along the baseboards in the bedrooms.
Brown recluse spiders are notorious for their dangerous bite. The bite of a brown recluse has the potential to cause skin necrosis, which means that the body tissue in the area directly surrounding the bite wound will start to die off. Children are most likely to be affected by brown recluse bites, and it is possible for these bites to lead to kidney failure and even death.

Each situation is different, so a specialized treatment plan is generally required for each stuation. We are always happy to provide a free estimate of costs for all of our services.
