Pecos, TX Pest & Weed Control
Like many towns in Texas, Pecos owes its initial growth to the railroad. Although a permanent camp had already been established near a crossing on the Pecos River used by cattle drives and stagecoach lines, the construction of a train depot fueled the town's growth. As of 2016, Pecos had a population that was estimated at almost 10,000 people and a strong, diverse economic base.

Whether they invade homes, hospitals, playgrounds, restaurants, offices or any other indoor or outdoor space, pests can pose a multitude of problems for humans, their pets and their livestock. In Pecos, we are commonly asked to eliminate the following types of pests.
- Ants: Pecos is home to several ant species, each of which has differences in food preferences, nesting sites and foraging habits. Some ants establish their colonies outdoors, but they may invade your structure when searching for food. Other species, including carpenter ants, can nest within the structure. The differences between species makes it essential to identify the type of ant that is present so that the correct treatment method can be used. Ants can deliver painful bites to humans and animals, contaminate food supplies and damage furnishings.
- Bed Bugs: Bed bugs were thought to have been eradicated in the United States during the 1950s. However, these pests began to reappear during the 1980s, and by the turn of the 21st century, the problem had become quite widespread. Bed bugs can conceal themselves in the smallest of spaces, can survive under a wide range of conditions and are easily transported in luggage, handbags, coat pockets and briefcases. They feed on blood and are attracted by the carbon dioxide exhaled by humans as well as the warmth of the human body. Bed bug infestations require the expertise of a professional exterminator to achieve eradication.
- Cockroaches: Cockroaches are one of the hardiest, most abundant and oldest insects in the world. Fortunately, only a few of the 4,600 species of cockroaches are considered pests that can infest human structures. However, when roaches do invade, they can pose a serious health risk. They can spread germs, trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate allergies. Eliminating an infestation requires the assistance of a pest control expert who can correctly identify the type of roach and choose the appropriate treatment.
- Rodents: Although there are many types of rodents that can be troublesome, in Pecos, we are usually asked to deal with mice and rats. Both of these rodents can spread serious diseases, are quite destructive and breed prolifically. Even a tiny gap can be sufficient to allow a mouse or rat to enter your home or business. Eliminating the problem typically requires a professional, comprehensive approach that involves barring access, scrupulous sanitation and traps or chemicals to remove existing rodents.
- Spiders: More than 45,000 species of spiders exist worldwide, but few spiders living in Pecos are capable of causing problems for humans bitten by them. Spiders typically prey on other insects, so many people consider them beneficial — as long as the eight-legged critters remain outside. However, even spiders that prefer the outdoors can wander inside to forage; outdoor spiders can also become so numerous that they are a major nuisance. Because there are so many different types of spiders, accurate identification is crucial to creating an effective treatment plan.
