Mosquitoes find humans and their pets appetizing
Call the professionals at Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions and keep them off your family and your home turf!
Did you know there are five types of common mosquitoes in North Carolina? There’s yellow fever, Asian tiger, common malaria, common house and gallinippers. As you can imagine, there’s a reason their names are associated with diseases. Most active June through September, they can spread Zika and West Nile virus, encephalitis, meningitis in humans and heart worm in dogs.
These tenacious little flying insects breed rapidly in warm, humid weather. But don’t discount their ability to survive our mild winters. They congregate in sewers, buckets of water, ditches, birdbaths – anywhere stagnant water is found. They only take a few weeks to mature from eggs to adults. Wearing protective clothing or repellant can help ward them off, but if they are nesting around your home and property, we have the tools to eliminate them.
Let us get your mosquito issue under control. Contact us today and let the Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions experts remove them from your residential property.
Roaches are “unhygienic scavengers” that can make you sick
Our experts will stop them from invading your home!
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, roaches carry many bacterial diseases, including salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus. Their fecal matter can trigger allergic reactions and asthma, especially in children. These “unhygienic scavengers” also help spread intestinal diseases, such as cholera, diarrhea and dysentery per the World Health Organization.
Here in the area of Mint Hill, NC, we’ve all seen roaches but would like to keep them from nesting in our homes and garages. Most likely they’re of several types: American, Brown-Banded, Oriental and German. They like to live near water and food sources. At your residence, they would gravitate to the pantry, under bathroom or kitchen sinks and large appliances, and areas where clutter piles up. They can be carried in via boxes, bags and packages. They also enter through tiny cracks around pipes, air-conditioning units, vents and chimneys.

Rodent feces, urine and saliva can make your employees sick
Our experts will stop rodents from invading your commercial property!
Rats and mice can spread many diseases directly and indirectly. These include hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, lassa fever, leptospirosis and hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. Whether through primary exposure or from mite or flea bites, rodents infesting your office building can make you and your employees sick with these and other illnesses. Did you know they can squeeze through the tiniest crevices, setting up shop between the wall and floor, in the roof of your commercial building, around windows, doors and in vents?
Seal up holes and contain food sources or crumbs that entice them to nest nearby. And dispose of office trash on a regular basis. Once rats or mice have moved into your space, they multiply quickly and can be hard to eradicate.

Ants are militant once they move in
Call the professionals at Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions and keep them off your home turf!
There’s a reason that ants have been described as forming armies and colonies. They are well organized, work for the survival of the queen and are singularly focused. When one ant locates a sugar or protein of preference, a trail of others will follow. They can also split into satellite colonies, making them harder to eliminate.
Though small, they are mighty. Common types include small black ants, fire ants and carpenter ants. The carpenter type is second only to termites for their potential to destroy. Collectively, they can chew and tunnel through structures. The painful sting of red fire ants can trigger allergic reactions in pets and small children. Ants can also spread bacteria. These are all good reasons to address an ant infestation right away.
