In the past and even still today, many calls pest control companies receive are from property owners/managers who need help getting rid of an infestation that already exists. You know, wait for the problem to arise and then treat it. While treatment is still effective in combating this type of pest issue, the Arkansas pest control professionals here at McCauley Services believe in taking a proactive approach when it comes to protecting people and property against unwanted and potentially damaging insects and rodents.

We talk a lot about mice around here at McCauley Services and if you have been reading our previous blogs about mouse nests, or the dangers of mice then you are probably learning quite a bit. So we decided that it would be fun to put your mouse IQ to the test!

Each winter there is an increased threat of mouse infestations with the onset of the colder weather in Little Rock, AR. Mice are commensal creatures meaning they thrive in human environments. So it’s no wonder that when the temperature drops, mice begin to seek warm places that offer food, shelter and water to keep themselves and their offspring safe and sound.

We recently discussed how mouse nests are a telltale sign of a mouse infestation in Arkansas. These small balls made of materials from around the home are a way to protect the mouse and their offspring but it does not mean good things for homeowners. Mouse infestations are dangerous to have lurking in your home due to the many health risks and structural damages that these tiny rodents present.

As we enter the fall season, mosquitoes are still a threat in Arkansas and commercial facilities are not exempt. If your facility and property is experiencing a problem with mosquitoes, there is a lot on the line in regards to the health and safety of your customers and employees.

When thinking about bed bugs, you are probably picturing them in a bed. Either at a hotel or in your home, bed bugs are most commonly associated with being found in rooms or places with beds. And while many bed bugs do in fact reside where a sleeping human is present, do you ever wonder about where else bed bugs could be hiding?

With May being Lyme Disease Awareness Month and with a year already proving to have higher than normal levels of tick activity, it is very important that everyone is well aware of the severity of a tick problem. As we’ve previously mentioned, Lyme disease is not a major problem in Arkansas as the Deer tick that transmits this disease is not a prevalent pest in our great state. That does not mean Arkansans are exempt from worry.

Unfortunately for us, there are several species of ants that call Arkansas home and as the warm weather of spring drives away our cabin fever, it also rouses these pesky insects. Depending on the species, ants can be simply a nuisance pest or they can cause structural damages in your home.

They have scissor-like jaws, they chew through wooden structures day and night, and they colonize by the thousands, even millions. Termites are a dreadful infestation to have in your home as they are the result of billions of dollars in structural damages around the nation. We recently discussed one of the signs of a termite infestation in a blog about termite swarmers. But what are some other signs that termites are present?

If you haven’t seen a termite swarm before, it is a good idea to learn what they are and why they happen. At first glance, a termite swarm looks like the attack of flying ants.

Every Thanksgiving, while most people in Little Rock, Benton and throughout Arkansas are giving thanks for their families, good health and employment, this year I am taking a moment to give thanks to McCauley Services and their year round pest control coverage. Yes, it may seem strange to include pest control on my list of things to be thankful for this year, but without it, my home could become a 5 star resort for ants, spiders and other damaging insects and rodents.

Unfortunately, for homeowners in Benton, Little Rock, Hot Springs and throughout Arkansas, the end of summer does not mean the end of pests. In fact, as the temperatures start to cool and the leaves start to change color, mice, rats and other rodents are actively starting to seek out shelter for the cold, winter months and much to our dismay, their target just might be our homes.

This time of year, most of us are starting to prepare for the cute, little house guests that will be arriving by the car loads on Halloween night. Ghosts, goblins and little, green monsters, may scare us momentarily, but one much scarier creature that may stop by, and unfortunately stay awhile in the homes throughout Arkansas are bats.

The house mouse one of the most bothersome, common pests in the United States, as well as one of the most damaging. Although mice live and thrive outside, they are considered a commensal rodent which means they share space with us and survive in part because of this close contact. Homes, sheds, garages, farms and commercial facilities are all susceptible to infestation. Food, water and shelter are what mice are looking for, and our homes and businesses can provide all three.
