Trusted Pest Control Services In Green Hills, TN

Green Hills is a wonderful place to live. Pests think so too. But pests don't live in Green Hills because of friendly neighbors and all that the mall has to offer for shopping and entertainment. Pests live here because the weather is perfect for raising a little pest family.

How do you keep pests from raising a family in your yard or inside your home? We have some tips that will help you get control of Green Hills pests. Join us as we look at DIY pest maintenance and how Wilson County pest control can help.

Residential Pest Control In Green Hills, TN

Do you see the occasional centipede clinging to a wall? Do spiders startle you in your bathroom? Do you have ant mounds all through your lawn? Pests can be a nuisance inside and outside of your home. If you understand why, you can have great success keeping them out.

  • When weeds start to take over your lawn, tiny flowers on those weeds can provide a food source for a long list of pests, including bees, wasps, mosquitoes, and ants. Addressing a weed problem can reduce potential pest problems by removing a desirable food source.
  • When leaves pile up in your landscaping or underneath your deck, many pests hide underneath. If you have lots of pests in those leaves, you have a greater chance of having pest problems in your home. Blow leaves out of your landscaping and out from underneath exterior structures.
  • When pests explore your exterior, they come in through cracks and gaps that can be sealed by applying a caulking material. Do this around utilities, doors, and windows. Also be sure to replace weatherstripping, door sweeps, and screens that aren't creating a complete seal.

It is a lot of work to address conditions that inspire pest activity and allow pest entry. For this reason, many Green Hills residents get year-round residential pest control service. A licensed professional applies specialized knowledge and trusted products to reduce pests, even in challenging environments.

Commercial Pest Control In Green Hills, TN

Pests are not welcome in any commercial environment and neither are some of the products employees use to address pest problems. We recommend training your staff to use pest maintenance. Here are a few examples:

  • Make sure trash is routinely removed from your property. Thoroughly clean receptacles and dumpsters to remove odors and move receptacles and dumpsters away from entry points. Many flying insects are attracted to trash.
  • Keep indoor spaces as clean as possible. If pests take a peek inside your business, you want them to be disappointed by the lack of food options.
  • Keep things organized and refrain from creating piles. Pests hide in piles.

Every business can benefit from year-round pest control service. A commercial pest control specialist will develop and implement a multi-pronged plan to reduce pest activity and apply multiple layers of protection to keep pests out. These services work hand-in-hand with your staff's general pest maintenance.

The Dangers Rodents Bring To Green Hills Properties

Mice, rats, and squirrels are considered domestic rodents, but they're not domesticated rodents. While they have a strong attraction to living near people, they aren't entirely commensal. Given certain circumstances, rodents can make people sick and cause property damage. Your pest maintenance can reduce the risk of sickness and property damage.

  • Mice and rats use lawn clutter to navigate. A clutter-free lawn is a rodent-resistant lawn.
  • All rodents can access your roof by way of tree branches. Trim branches away from your roofline to help prevent this.
  • Squirrels love nuts. If you have nut-producing trees, be sure to stay on top of raking them up.
  • All rodents love seeds. Remove bird feeders or move them well away from your exterior to reduce rodent activity in your perimeter.
  • Use the exclusion tips given above to make it more difficult for rodents to get into your home through gaps and cracks.

When more control is needed due to conducive conditions or higher than normal rodent pressures, trapping may be necessary. We recommend hiring a rodent control professional for this. If you're in Green Hills, reach out to us here at Cima Solutions for assistance. 

A Step-By-Step Ant Control Guide For Green Hills Property Owners

Ants can come into your home by the thousands. Here are the steps to arrest an ant problem with natural pest maintenance:

  1. Suck the ants up with a vacuum and dispose of the bag outside.
  2. Clean the areas where you found the ants, including their trails.
  3. Remove the food source(s) that brought them in.
  4. Use a caulking gun to seal potential gaps they used to gain entry into your home.
  5. Replace weatherstripping on exterior doors.
  6. On the outside of your home, remove organic debris.

If you do these things, you may stop seeing ants inside. In cases where ants are being particularly troublesome, the ants will need to be properly identified and treated with appropriate ant control products.
