All About Mice

Do you hate mice? You’re not alone. Nobody likes to have critters running around in the kitchen, the pantry… or the bedroom. Yikes! And of all the critters that can get into your home, mice are one of the worst to have around. Let’s take a moment to explore some things you may not know about mice.

There Is Nothing Cute About a Wild Mouse

If you think mice are disgusting, you’re right. They are! Mice are very unclean creatures that climb around in dumpsters and trash cans. They also leave their waste in the areas they sleep. You definitely don’t want these critters in your pantry or food cabinets. They can carry diseases and contaminate your food.

How Do Mice Get In?

A mouse can gain access to your home through a hole the size of a dime. This is because they can compact their internal organs as they squeeze through. You’ll have to look closely to find holes that mice are using to get into your home. Some common entry points are:

  • Gaps in weatherstripping
  • Damaged door sweeps
  • Holes in window and door frames
  • Gaps around window and door frames
  • Damaged screens
  • Holes around pipes or wire conduit
  • Holes in the soleplate of a home
  • Vents

Mice and Ticks Go Together Like Peas and Carrots

Ticks are becoming more of a concern for folks in Middle Tennessee. You may not realize this but a single mouse can have as many as a hundred seed ticks on its body. When those seed ticks develop, they drop off and begin to explore your house for another host. While they don’t take humans as hosts, they can attach and get a blood meal. They can present another disease threat.

 

Warning Signs

Are you wondering if you have mice inside your home? There are a few ways you can tell.

  • One of the easiest ways to find out whether or not you have a mice infestation is to look for droppings. You can quickly check in the cabinet under your kitchen sink or take a little more time to go up into your attic and check that area real quick. If you find droppings, look to see if they are dark and moist. This is an indication that you have a current and active infestation. Mouse droppings are usually about the size of a grain of rice. That is pretty small, but they’ll leave lots of droppings around for you to find.
  • If you go into your attic to check for droppings, you may also look for small, matted down nests. These will be made from soft material taken from your home, such as insulation, wallpaper, cardboard shreds, cotton from clothing or the stuffing from furniture. If you have furniture stored in your attic, they may nest inside. This can ruin your furniture.
  • Mice soak areas of infestation with their urine. The smell of mice urine can be quite strong. If you have a large infestation, you’ll know it as soon as you poke your nose up into your attic.
  • Sometimes you can hear mice. The time to listen for them is at night because they are nocturnal. If you listen closely, you may hear them bumping around. You may also hear them chewing and gnawing. Mice are rodents and rodents have to continually file down their teeth because their teeth never stop growing. Mice chew on many things, including wiring. This makes them a fire hazard.
  • Mice leave greasy rub marks on baseboards as they run along walls.
  • Gnaw marks and holes in baseboards, sheetrock, and food packaging can let you know you have an infestation.

How Do You Get Rid of Mice?

The best solution is to call All-American Pest Control. Why? Because who wants to handle mice on their own, and we’re professionals. This is what we do for a living. Our service team has a lot of experience and they are trained in the habits and behavior of mice.

Franklin Resident's Ultimate Guide To Home Pest Prevention  

At All-American Pest Control, our primary goal is to protect the health and property of residents in our Middle Tennessee service area from the harmful impact of insects and wildlife. For this reason, we often share pest prevention strategies in this little blog of ours. Back in February, we posted our Best Prevention Tips for 2019. Now, as we head into fall, which is the time of year when pests try even harder to get into Franklin homes, we thought that it would be a good idea to put out another list of great prevention tips. Then someone had the idea: Why not create the ultimate guide to home pest prevention. Well, we don’t know if this will be the ultimate guide or not, but it will get you started toward changing the conditions that promote pest infestations inside and outside of your Franklin home.

Exterior Pest Prevention

  • Caulk gaps around the outside of your home. This will help to keep pests out.
  • Check the weatherstripping around your exterior doors. If you see gaps, replace the stripping or have the doors adjusted to seal things up.Make sure all your screens are in good working condition. This keeps flying pests out, especially overwintering pests like stink bugs and Asian lady beetles.
  • Keep leaves raked up and away from your exterior. Leaves promote moisture and increase populations of moisture pests, among other things.
  • Make sure your gutters are free of obstructions. Leaves and other debris can cause rainwater to pool and spill over, which leads to ground saturation near your home and attracts termites, carpenter ants and other wood-damaging pests.
  • Move bird feeders away from your outside walls. The seed that falls to the ground is highly attractive to mice.
  • Trim back trees from your roofline. This prevents roof rats, squirrels and other animals from climbing down onto your roof and accessing your Franklin home.
  • Trim bushes in your landscaping to provide better airflow to resist the dampness that can increase pest populations. Trimming bushes also helps to reduce hiding places for wildlife.
  • If you have firewood near your home, move it to at least 20 feet away and elevate it. Stacks of wood are a playground for many pests. Spiders establish themselves in wood to feed on those pests and termites feed on the wood itself.
  • Remove objects from your yard that don’t need to be out there. Some pests will use any object as harborage. They’re not picky.
  • Keep your lawn mowed and everything trimmed. Dense and wild vegetation promote pest activity and tall grass will invite meadow voles into your yard.
  • Make sure exterior trash is in sealed containers. Pests feed on organic material in trash and also lay their eggs in it. Plus, sealing trash keeps the smells from attracting pests onto your property and near your home.
  • If you see spider webs, clean them up. This can deter spiders.
    Keep exterior lights off that do not impact security, or consider replacing white bulbs with insect
  • resistant yellow bulbs.

Interior Pest Prevention

  • Clean spills up quickly to reduce attractants for ants and other pests.
  • Vacuum routinely to reduce food sources for pests.
  • Consider keeping fruit in the fridge to prevent fruit fly infestations.
  • Keep on top of cleaning your cat litter box, it can be a source for fungus fly reproduction.
  • Keep pantry food in sealed plastic containers to keep pantry pests from spreading between packages. Also, be sure to inspect packages at the store to make sure there are no tears or holes.
  • Keep pet food in plastic containers with a sealed lid and only put pet food down during meal times.
  • Remove webs when you see them.

Professional Pest Prevention

Homes that have the best protection from pests are homes with a residential pest control plan. In Franklin, and throughout Middle Tennessee, you can’t beat All-For-One Complete Care from All-American Pest Control.

Beware Of Asian Lady Beetles In Nashville

There are many superstitions linked to ladybugs. It is said that if a ladybug lands on you and flies away on its own, you’ll have good luck. And if you count the spots on a ladybug, it will tell you how many years of good luck you’ll have! Another superstition says that the appearance of a ladybug in a crop field is good luck. And it is believed that the stronger the color red, the more luck you’ll have. This last one actually has some truth to it. Here are a few things you should definitely know about ladybugs.

You probably know that a ladybug is red with black dots. You may also know that ladybugs don’t bite and that they are great to have crawling around in your garden. All of this is true. Ladybugs are great. But Asian lady beetles aren’t ladybugs.

While Asian lady beetles can help to control crop-damaging pests, they are considered to be a significant pest for homes and businesses. This is because, unlike ladybugs which are indigenous to North American, Asian lady beetles congregate in large numbers, get into homes in large numbers, and they can bite. Yup. They bite.

How To Tell If You Have Asian Lady Beetles

Let’s return to that folklore we talked about above. Asian lady beetles can be red, but they are usually other colors, such as yellow, orange and brown. So, the redder a beetle is, the more luck you’re going to have with it. Red lady beetles are likely to be indigenous ladybugs. Other colored lady beetles are Asian lady beetles. If you happen to see a red-colored Asian lady beetle, you can tell it apart from a ladybug by looking at its back, just below the head. This is the thorax of the insect. On the thorax, an Asian lady beetle has a set of black dots that form an M shape. Ladybugs have a thorax that is mostly black with no white spots on each side, near the head. On the head, the ladybug has two smaller white dots. If you know this distinction, you can easily tell the difference between friendly, non-biting ladybugs, and slightly aggressive, Asian lady beetles that do bite.

Fall Lady Beetle Problems

We’re often asked, “Will Asian lady beetles be a problem this fall?” The answer to this is, yes. They are always a problem in the fall. How much of a problem they will be for you depends on where you live. If you live near a crop field, you’re likely to have these insects visiting you by the thousands. You won’t, however, have ladybugs visiting you by the thousands. Not only do ladybugs refrain from congregating in large numbers, but their populations in the United States are dwindling.

When Asian lady beetles get in, they can create many problems. Not only do they bite, they can stain fabrics, create a foul odor, and aggravate allergies. They’re also prone to infesting locations that have been previously infested. So if you got a ton of Asian lady beetles this year, you’ll probably get a ton of them next year.

What to Do About Asian Lady Beetles

If Asian lady beetles haven’t gotten into your home yet, there are a few things you can do to keep them out:

  • Make sure all your screens are free of holes and tears.
  • Check around the edges of your screens and seal any holes.
  • Inspect your window and door frames. If you find gaps, use a caulking gun to seal them.
  • Make sure your weatherstripping and door sweeps are in good condition.

If Asian lady beetles get in, there are a few things you can do to deal with them, such as sucking them up with a vacuum cleaner or laying down sticky traps to remove them. But the best solution is to reach out to All-American Pest Control. Our friendly and highly-trained service team members know exactly what is required to eliminate these pests. Reach out to us. We can help!

Do Stink Bugs In Nashville Really Stink?

In the fall, we begin to get visitors inside our Nashville homes. They’re brown, shield-shaped, and some would say they stink—hench the name stink bug. But not everyone thinks stink bugs stink. Sure, most people describe the smell in an unfavorable way, such as comparing it to burning rubber or the spray of a skunk, or just going straight to calling it a foul stench. But there are some who don’t mind the smell because it reminds them of cilantro or coriander. Regardless of what camp you fall in, you probably don’t want bugs crawling around in your Nashville home no matter what they smell like. Let’s take a look at few tips for dealing with stink bugs.

When Stink Bugs Get In

If you already have stink bugs inside your Nashville home, you need to be cautious about how you get rid of them if you don’t like the smell they emit. A vacuum can get the job done quickly but you’re going to have to dispose of the bag when you’re done and that can get costly. There is a trap you can make with a 1-liter plastic bottle that does a good job of capturing stink bugs but don’t let the stink bugs sit in the bottle for too long. It can get gross.

Before Stink Bugs Get In

Fall is an important time of year to prepare for stink bugs because this is the time of year when stink bugs congregate on sun-warmed surfaces and begin to hide in cracks to protect themselves from the cold temperatures. Your fall stink bug prep should include the following:

  • An inspection of your exterior.
  • An application of a high-quality silicone caulk to small gaps, holes, and cracks.
  • An application of expanding foam to larger holes.
  • Repair damaged screens.
  • Replace damaged door sweeps, weather stripping, or bristles on sliding glass doors.
  • Repair damaged soffits.

Need Help?

The best protection from stink bugs and other fall pests is to invest in a residential pest control plan like Perimeter Plus pest control from All-American Pest Control. If you live in Nashville, we would love the opportunity to tell you about Perimeter Plus and our three-step process for dealing with over 30 common Tennessee pests. Reach out to us today to chat or to schedule a free home evaluation. The team at All-American is looking forward to guiding you in this essential protection for your health and property.

Mosquitoes Are Biting In East Nashville, TN

This will come as no surprise—mosquitoes bite people. But what you might not know is why they bite us or how desperate they are to bite us. Do you know that only female mosquitoes bite? This is because females need protein to fertilize their eggs. Drawing blood from us isn’t about getting a bite to eat. It is about the preservation of their species. That is why female mosquitoes are so incessant when they start flying around you in your backyard. It is a matter of life and death. It isn’t about hunger. They can get all the food they need from the plants in your yard. This is important to understand.

Male and female mosquitoes get all the nourishment they need from plant sap, honeydew, and nectar. They don’t come into your yard to bite you; they come for the food. If you have lots of vegetation, guess what? You’re going to have lots of mosquitoes. That’s just how it is. But there are some things you can do to reduce mosquitoes in your East Nashville yard.

  • Keep Your Landscape Dry — When mosquitoes choose a place to hide, they prefer moist vegetation over dry vegetation. If you give your plants only the water they need and try to keep your topsoil as dry as possible, you can make your landscaping a little less interesting to mosquitoes.
  • Reduce Stagnant Water — Most of the mosquitoes that bite you in your yard are hatched in your yard. When you remove stagnant water and containers that capture rainwater, you reduce the population of mosquitoes around your home.
  • Get Some Help — The best solution for the reduction and control of mosquitoes is to invest in a residential pest control program that includes mosquito reduction like our Perimeter Plus Pest & Mosquito program. Since this program includes important protection from overwintering pests, it isn’t too late to stop mosquitoes and pests in your yard. Any time of year is the right time of year to begin protecting your home and your family from East Nashville pests.

Mosquitoes will come into your yard for no other reason than to feed on nectar, plant sap, and honeydew. Stop them in their tracks with the routine mist treatments that come with your Perimeter Plus pest protection. Get started today by requesting a free pest inspection. We’re standing by to help.

Halloween Beetles Invade & Infuriate Murfreesboro

There is something that happens this time of year. Toward the end of October, we begin to see something on houses in Murfreesboro. They’re orange and black and creepy. No, we’re not talking about Halloween pumpkins. We’re talking about a beetle that commonly invades homes around Halloween. They’re called Asian lady beetles but some refer to them as Halloween beetles, which isn’t surprising. These creepy pests go perfectly with this end-of-October celebration of treats, tricks, and things that go bump in the night. Here are a few things you should know.

Why is October the time when Halloween beetles start showing up?

Cold temperatures: Most of the year, Asian lady beetles can be found in crop fields. These insects help with the control of crop-damaging aphids. For this, we are grateful. But when temperatures drop, they swarm by the hundreds and even thousands to search for a warm place to hide from the cold. This is when they begin to congregate on the sun-warmed sides of man-made structures.

What are Halloween beetles attracted to?

  • Light-colored buildings near wooded areas or fields are a common target.
  • Homes that have light and dark contrasts in color tend to be more attractive.
  • Homes with lots of vegetation are perfect for these aphid-eating insects.
  • Like many insects, Halloween beetles are attracted to light. Homes with white light turned on at night will be more attractive.
  • Bright-colored homes with illuminated surfaces meet two criteria for attraction.
  • Homes that have lit-up windows at night will draw in more of these beetles. Keep your shades drawn and curtains closed to reduce beetles.

How do Halloween beetles get in?

There are many ways these insects can find a way into your Murfreesboro home. The most common are:

  • Gaps in the weatherstripping around exterior doors.
  • Broken seals around door and window frames.
  • Holes created by wood-damaging pests.
  • Damaged or missing door sweeps.
  • Torn screens and holes in window frames created by pests.
  • Damaged gaskets or seals around roof penetrations.
  • How do I keep Halloween beetles out?
  • Using a high-quality silicone caulk to fill small gaps and holes.
  • For larger holes, you may try a urethane foam.
  • Make sure your screens are all in good repair.
  • Fix or replace damaged door sweeps or weatherstripping.

For further assistance, contact a local pest control professional for advice on how to deal with Halloween beetles. There are many factors that need to be considered and your circumstances may make your home more of a target.

If you need pest control service to deter Halloween beetles and other overwintering pests, remember that the service team at All-American Pest Control is standing by to help.

How Do I Get Rid Of Wasps In Mt. Juliet?

When it comes to beneficial insects, wasps are near the top of the list. They help with the pollination of flowers and flowering plants, which contributes to the production of food on our planet, and they are instrumental in the control of bugs. Wasps eat a ton of bugs. But as you can probably guess, it isn’t good to have too many wasps visiting your property. It is even worse when wasps decide to create a nest on your property. If you’re wondering about how to get rid of wasps in Mt. Juliet, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s break it down into three parts: How to get rid of wasps, how to prevent wasp nests, and how professional wasp control can help.

Identification

Before we talk about control, it is important to know which insects we are referring to because most wasps aren’t called wasps. The only wasp that bears the name ‘wasp’ is the paper wasp. But keep in mind that yellow jackets, mud daubers, and bald-faced hornets are all wasps.

How to Get Rid of Wasps

  • In spring, it is possible to address small nests by examining to make sure there are no wasps present and then swiping the nest down with a broom. Once nests are complete, or when multiple wasps can be seen on a nest, it is best to give us a call and have one of our licensed service professionals take care of the problem.
  • If you have lots of wasps on your property but no nest, it might be due to a plant that is attractive to wasps. Check your landscaping and consider removing spearmint, sweet fennel, and/or yarrow.
  • When wasps visit a lot, some homeowners have success with sugar and water traps. You can make your own or purchase one. Keep in mind that this could attract wasps to your property.

How to Prevent Wasps

Each species of wasp is different. Therefore, all of these tips do not apply to all wasps. It is important to keep this in mind.

  • Many wasps eat meat. Be sure to keep your trash in sealed bags and sealed receptacles to keep the smells in and the wasps out.
  • Wasps are attracted to light. If you keep lights off at night you may prevent the attraction of wasps.
  • Wasps need to drink. They can get a drink from puddles and containers that capture rainwater.
  • Remove containers and alter conditions that allow the capture of rainwater.
  • If you plant wormwood (also called artemisia) in your landscaping, you can repel some wasps. You may also have some success by planting citronella or eucalyptus.

Take a look at this link for more reasons why wasps are lingering around your home. It also gives some useful information about how wasps overwinter in Mt. Juliet homes.

Professional Wasp Control

The best solution for wasp control is to invest in residential pest control. This is because routine visits from a service professional will alert you to conditions that are conducive for wasp habitation, help with early nest detection, provide control of the bugs that wasps feed on, and give you a barrier that repels a wide range of insects, including wasps. If you need assistance with this, reach out to us. We offer industry-leading residential pest control in Mt. Juliet and throughout Middle Tennessee. We can help.

Signs Of A Mouse Infestation In Gallatin

When mice get into your Gallatin home or business, they can make you sick, damage your belongings, and cause damage to building materials. These little furry guests also bring other pests in with them, such as ticks, fleas, mites, and parasitic worms. If you’re thinking, “Um, no thanks,” we’re with you. Today, we’re going to look at a few warning signs mice give when they break into properties. Recognizing these signs early can lead you to take quick action to prevent sickness and property damage.

  • Droppings — Mice commonly leave tiny fecal pellets in the backs of drawers, in cabinets under kitchen sinks, in bathroom cabinets, on insulation in the attic, and behind or under appliances.
  • Noises — While you can’t always rely on this warning sign due to the incredibly sneaky nature of mice, in certain circumstances, mice can make noises that give them away. It is usually inside walls where they feel the safest.
  • Holes — There are many places you can look for mouse holes: stored food packages, baseboards, sheetrocked walls, door and window frames, seals around door and window frames, gaskets around roof penetrations, and more.
  • Smells — As an infestation grows, the smell of mouse urine may be detected in your common areas. You may need to get low and smell around appliances or in cabinets under sinks.
  • Marks — Mice run with one side against the wall. This may leave grease marks on baseboards along common routes.
  • Pet Behavior — Cats and dogs have better senses than we do. If you have a dog or cat, you may notice odd behavior when mice have gotten into your home or business.

Rodent Control

The best way to control mice is through the proper deployment of mouse traps and systematic monitoring of mouse activity. While you can do this on your own, it is important that you understand the pitfalls:

Trapping mice can be difficult. They have behaviors that help them avoid being trapped.
Mice contaminate your home with bacteria, pathogens, and parasites. These should be addressed.
Removing mice doesn’t correct a mouse infestation. You need to take measures to keep new mice from getting in.

For complete and comprehensive control of mice in Gallatin, reach out to the rodent control experts. The service team at All-American Pest Control has the training, experience, and professionalism to correct mice infestations. We take the guesswork out of rodent infestations.

Be On The Lookout For These Fall Pests In Spring Hill

When it gets cold out, critters get in. That’s just how it is. But you don’t have to make it easy for them. Let’s take a look at a few common fall pests in Spring Hill and discuss some helpful tips for keeping them out.

Common Fall Pests of Spring Hill

There are many reasons pests get into our Spring Hill homes and businesses in the fall. Some come in looking for a place to hide from the cold, some hitchhike in, and some just come in because they’re always getting in.

Rodents — There is no time of year when mice and rats aren’t getting into man-made structures. But a curious mouse or rat can become even more curious when it senses heat leaking out of a door seal on a cold winter day. It is wise to make sure you have good seals around your doors and windows before the cold sets in.

Cockroaches — These dirty insects are common interior pests but cold temperatures give them even more incentive to get in. It is extremely difficult to keep them from doing this and the most effective solution is routine barrier treatments performed by a licensed professional.

Stinging Insects — Most wasps and hornets die off in the winter. It is only the female reproductives that usually make it to spring. They do this by hiding in crevices. If a female wasp or hornet hides in a crevice of your home, it is likely to create a nest on your property in the spring. Do your best to seal entry points both low and high. A caulking gun is a great tool for getting this job done.

Lady Beetles — These insects can be found feeding on crop-damaging insects during the warm months but they get into homes and businesses when the cold months arrive. If they attempt to congregate on your home, an external treatment of EPA-approved pest product can prevent them from sticking around.

Ants — There are several pest ants in Spring Hill and throughout Middle Tennessee. The ants to watch out for in the fall are carpenter ants. These ants create nests inside wood. If they choose the wood of your home, they can cause a lot of damage. Ant bait is the solution for these pests but it is wise to have a professional deploy them. Carpenter ants are sneaky pests. If you fail to eliminate them, you may not know it.

Fall Pest Management

If you want to take care of these pests on your own, we offer many suggestions in this little blog of ours, such as this article Top 5 Fall Pest Prevention Tips. But, if you’d like to know for sure that you have the best pest protection possible, connect with us. At All-American Pest Control, we offer industry-leading pest control for Spring Hill homes and businesses. We look forward to guiding you in the implementation of this essential service.
