Common Household Pests

Rodents

Rodents

A key to successful long-term rodent control is limiting shelter and food sources wherever possible. At Hawkeye Exterminators, we not only eliminate rodents, we find the reason why they are entering your home or business and provide solutions to stop the entry of rodents. We use a baiting method with a bait that is not harmful to your pets.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches

We use a baiting technique to control and get rid of roaches. It is less labor intensive as you don't have to empty all your cupboards, etc. You don't have to vacate the home, it is safe, non-odorous and usually needs very few follow-up treatments, if any. Once treated, be sure to keep your kitchen clean, especially the stove and oven because Cockroaches love grease. Also, take the trash out regularly, keep food sealed, and keep the kitchen dry.

Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are invasive pests that usually feed at night on sleeping hosts. They find a host by detecting the carbon dioxide and warmth given-off by the host. They are flat, oval, reddish brown in color and range in size from 1/8 to 5/8 inch. They hide in cracks and crevices of a your home including furniture, molding, outlets, and carpet edges. Bed bug females lay about 200 eggs which hatch in about 1 to 2 weeks. Newborn bed bugs will be ready to lay their own eggs in 4 to 8 weeks. Its saliva causes the swelling and itch of the bite.

Termites

Termites

Termites cause hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage to homes and businesses throughout the United States each year. Unfortunately, most property owners are usually not aware that they have a widespread termite problem until they have caused extensive structural damage to their homes and/or properties. We use proven, state-of-the-art and environmentally responsible termite treatments to reach termites where they live and breed.

Ants

Ants

Ant colony on your property can have devastating effects and requires immediate help from an exterminator. Ant, especially carpenter ant control is critical, as they eat wood and can destroy structures around your house. Our ant control method delivers impressive results and chemical used are environment friendly.

Spiders

Spiders

Spiders are related to insects and they are known as arachnids. While most spiders are harmless, some are venomous and their bite can have serious consequences. Spiders can be found in homes throughout the year but they are more common during warm weather. Homes located in areas favorable to spiders, such as lakes, woods or fields, are more likely to have large numbers of spiders.

Flies, Moth and Lady Bugs

Flies, Moths and Lady Bugs

Flies and Moths are major pests and real nuisance. Lady buys tend to stay in soybean fields until the fall and swarm to homes after the harvest and with the first chilly days of fall. Lady bugs have been a real nuisance the last few years. The secret to their treatment is a thorough fall treatment inside and out when they first start to converge on your home.

Wasp

Hornets and Wasps

Hornets nests resemble a large, inverted tear-drop shaped ball and a typical nest may contain thousands of wasps which are extremely aggressive when disturbed. Hornets are far more difficult and dangerous to control than other type of wasps such as paper wasps. Yellow Jackets tend to be a serious nuisance in fall as they search for discarded food. At Hawkeye Exterminators, we use a safe dust to control hornets, yellow jackets, bees and other wasps. Dust spray doesn't excite them and they are usually controlled within a few hours.

There are a variety of other less common bugs (too many to mention), but we assure you that we have dealt with them at one time or another. If you are not sure what they are, you can take a picture and e-mail them to us and we could identify them for you and see what we need to do. Or you can just call and we will help you with your dilemma.
