Del Valle Pest Control knows that ants can be irritating and cause harm to your home and family. Although most ants found in the home are harmless nuisances, the large black Carpenter ants and the tiny Pharaoh ant can become more of a serious problem. Carpenter ants cause structural damage to your home, while Pharaoh ants are persistent and very difficult to control. As they hunt for food, a single ant can lead the colony to invade your home.
The only way to completely rid the home of ant infestation is to find the nest and remove the queen. Del Valle Pest Control are the trained professionals that can effectively exterminate ants from your home.
To control ants in a structure, there are four basic rules to follow:
Because it is not always possible to find where the ant colony is located, bait insecticides can be effective.
For permanent control, trained pest control experts are recommended!

Yes, it’s true! Bed bugs are real and they may be infesting your home. These insects can reside in any area of your home, however; they mostly nest in beds, including mattresses, box springs, and bed frames. Bed bugs are most active at night and will bite any exposed areas of skin while an individual is sleeping.
Because bed bug bites are difficult to distinguish, they may go unnoticed or be mistaken for mosquito bites and skin rashes. Since bed bugs can live for months without feeding, they can also be found in vacant homes.
Female bedbugs lay up to 200 eggs in a lifetime, which can be a year or longer. Below is displayed the life cycle of a bedbug. At the end of each stage, the bug sheds its skin.
At Del Valle Pest Control we have extensive training and advanced technology focusing on attacking any pests in commercial or residential homes and breaking the pest life cycle to keep them from coming back. Get bed bugs pest control services today.

Everyone knows mosquitoes can be a real nuisance, especially in the hot and humid weather of the Rio Grande Valley and South Texas. However, most of us do not realize the real threats mosquitoes can carry. Some of the world’s most dreaded diseases are known to be carried and transmitted by mosquitoes.
Many countries around the world are ravaged yearly by malaria, yellow fever, and dengue-hemorrhagic fever. In the United States, encephalitis and dog heartworm are the primary mosquito-borne diseases. Dengue, similar to malaria, has recently crossed the Mexican border into Texas and is now seen as a serious public health threat.
Our professional Pest Control technicians are specifically trained to treat your home, property and commercial structures for irritating mosquitoes. Our integrated pest management program incorporates the best possible tools and strategies to provide a systematic approach to mosquito control.
