McKinney TX Exterminator, Pest Control & Termite Inspector
McKinney Pest Pressure
The warm and wet summers in McKinney, TX, attract subterranean termites to the area. These pests live in the soil and feed on surrounding wood. They often move from the soil and burrow into the wooden frames of homes, expanding their tunnel systems as their colonies grow. In doing so, termites undermine the structural integrity of buildings. Since they can cause significant amounts of damage before being noticed, infestations of the pests tend to cost homeowners a lot of money in repairs.
Summertime in McKinney also provides the perfect environment for ants to thrive. Species common to the area include nuisance house ants, red imported fire ants, and carpenter ants. House ants invade kitchens to find sugary and fatty foods and then leave chemical pheromone trails that lead their fellow colony members to the food source. Red imported fire ants set up underground nests with mounds in yards and sting people who accidentally disturb their nesting sites. Their stings are very painful. Finally, carpenter ants are similar to termites because they tunnel into and damage wooden beams. However, carpenter ants tunnel into the wood to nest inside it rather than consume it.
