Bed Bugs

Bed bugs were eradicated from America during a very long time. However, during the past decade they started to come back and now it's epidemic in this region of the country.

We have been watching the increase of activity in our city, year after year. They are inside apartments, condos, houses, offices, hotels, movie theaters and even schools. No one is safe anymore because they are very small and can often be carried unnoticed inside bags and suitcases.

If you suspect of bed bugs in your home or office, call us immediately because the infestation tend to increase drastically and it becomes harder and harder to control it. In severe cases, even furniture may be lost. So please, don't hesitate in contacting us. We offer free bed bug inspection and free estimate.

Watch the video above for examples of heavy infestation.

Heavy infestations can be difficult to control. They won't be resolved in just one visit. However Statewide Termite & Pest Control, Inc. can perform a FREE inspection, identification of infestation and provide you a free estimate. No obligations, no contracts and no pushy sales person.

Service agreements for maintenance and prevention of future infestations are available upon request.

CALL NOW for your FREE INSPECTION AND ESTIMATE and make sure your home is bug-clear!

Ants are a very common problem in this area and may be difficult to control. After the first treatment it is common to see "new" colonies appearing from other places in the house. This happens because ants communicate with each other through sound, touch and pheromones.

A crushed ant emits an alarm pheromone that sends nearby ants into an attack frenzy and attracts more ants from farther away. Several ant species even use "propaganda pheromones" to confuse enemy ants and make them fight among themselves.

​​Pheromones also are exchanged, mixed with food, transferring information within the colony. This allows other ants to detect what task group (e.g., foraging or nest maintenance) to which other colony members belong. ​​

Over the counter products don't usually work for ants because th​ey are simply not strong enough. They also only kill ants that you see, not the entire colony. Over the counter products may even worsen the problem with time, because they cause resistance. Resistance doesn't mean that the ants get stronger but it means that the colony gets stronger and resistant to the product. Resistance happens because the weak ants die and strong ones stay alive and reproduce, so soon you will have an entire colony completely resistant to the product.

It is important to address the problem as quickly as possible, because the infestation can worsen severally over time and cause great damage to your property, specially if you are dealing with carpenter ants. Carpenter Ants can cause just as much damage as termites.

What to do?
The product that we use is very effective against ants. It is a prescription product, which means that only licensed pest control technicians can buy or apply it. But it is still safe for your family, children and pets when applied by a certified and experienced technician.

Our chemical doesn't kill the ants right away, rather creates a sort of "ant infection" that is carried back to the colony. Soon the entire colony dies, not only one. Even if only one ant gets in contact with this product, it will still be enough to exterminate the entire colony.

​​​​​It is important to maintain the treatment in a regular basis until all colonies are gone.

​​Ants can get inside our homes through very small cracks. Sometimes an exclusion should be advised to avoid new colonies from coming in seeking water, sweets or greasy items in the kitchen pantry or storeroom areas.

​​We have monthly, quarterly and yearly agreements ​​​available upon request at a discounted price from a one-time treatment. This way it's easy and inexpensive to maintain your home ants-free.

Grandma's recipe to prevent bed bugs


I don't know how effective this really is, but all I can tell is that my family in Brazil used to do this and we never had bed bugs.

Grandma Laura's secret was to put a few leafs of epazote underneath our mattresses. This herb seems to have a repellent property against bed bugs.

In case of infestation in the neighborhood, they would also make "brooms" out of epazote to swap the carpets.

Bed bugs had been eradicated for a long time in America but now, they have returned to this area and it's epidemic. If you suspect of bed bugs, don't wait until the infestation is out of control. Call your pest control company right away.
