Ants Pest Control

Ants Pest Control

Ants Are More Than Just A Nuisance

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.

Ants Pest Control-Basic Guide Solution for Ants

To control ants in a structure, there are four basic rules to follow:

  1. Identify the ant or ants
  2. Perform thorough inspection
  3. Determine where the ant colonies are located
  4. Treat the ant colonies directly

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!

Bed Bugs Pest Control

Bed Bugs, Are they real?

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.

Bed Bugs Pest Control-Life Cycle of a bedbug

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.

Drywood Termites Pest Control

Drywood Termites problems?

When is a Tent Fumigation Necessary?

  • When drywood termites are detected
    When a colony of drywood termites invades your home, the damage they cause can quickly eat up your equity. That’s why it’s so important to stop these destructive pests before damage costs add up.
  • When powderpost beetles are detected.
    Powderpost Beetles: Named for the powder-like dust they leave behind when they attack wood surfaces, powderpost beetles are second only to termites in their wood destruction abilities, so powderpost beetles’ bodies allow them to slide into wood areas. Powderpost beetles lay their eggs in cracks of wood and their larvae tunnel in and fill it with the powder-like dust. Powderpost beetles have attraction to light, and they are most active at night. These beetles can destroy wood in your home – powderpost beetles often attack hardwood floors, crates, antiques, and other hardwood materials. The best method of powderpost beetle prevention is to thoroughly inspect the wood sources in your house.

What is the fumigation process?-Drywood Termites

The fumigation process takes approximately 24 to 48 hours. Our Team will monitor the fumigation along with a Pest Control company with the correct license that will tent your home with large tarps, preparing the interior, sealing the tarps, and releasing a warning agent (chloropicrin) into the structure. Then, a certified termite technician will introduce the fumigant through a special hose that attaches to a cylinder located outside your home.

The fumigant will penetrate into the wood to eliminate the termites. After the fumigation process is complete, we will certify your home ready for re-entry.

Drywood Termites Precautions

Here are some precautions during and after the fumigation process that our company will be monitoring along with the terchnician:

  • Releasing chloropicrin, the warning agent, which releases a strong odor and causes tearing of the eyes and throat, helps ensure a structure is vacant of people and pets.
  • Secure the doors on your home with additional locking devices designed to prevent entry by anyone except the fumigator.
  • Provide a Licensed Security Guard to protect your property at night
  • Use sophisticated equipment to detect when the fumigant has dissipated and help ensure your home is clear for re-entry.

Read through the following to ensure your part in the precaution steps.

The day before the fumigation…

  • Water the soil up to 18 inches from the outer walls of your home to protect outdoor plants and shrubs.
  • Cut back foliage, shrubbery and landscaping at least 18 inches from the structure to allow room for the tarps.
  • Remember to make arrangements for overnight accommodations for you and your pets, as the process takes 24-48 hours.
  • Keep in mind the fumigation may need to be rescheduled if the weather is uncooperative, high winds and rain may hinder a fumigation and cause potential danger to fumigators.

The day of the fumigation…

  • Remove all plants from your home and outdoor patios.
  • Evacuate all people and pets from the structure.
  • Remove mattresses that are completely enveloped in plastic, such as baby mattresses with waterproof covers, or remove the covers themselves.
  • Remove any food, feed, drugs and medicines your fumigator specifies. You do not need to remove items in plastic bottles, glass bottles, metal bottles, cans or jars with the original manufacturer’s airtight seal intact. Anything that will be ingested should be removed.

Birds Pest Control


Excessive bird nesting around your property can cause considerable types of damage to your building, equipment and facilities, which is why bird-proofing your building or home is a smart choice. Call Del Valle Pest Control, serving in the Rio Grande Valley and South Texas for over 10 years! (956)433-3348

Birds Pest Control-Why solve your bird problem?

There are several very good reasons to consider bird-proofing your building or home:

  • Physical damage from acidic droppings to buildings, equipment and facilities can cause considerable damage.

    A negative image is presented to your customers when buildings or walkways become littered with nesting debris, birds and droppings.

Cost of Cleanup

  • Regular cleaning or maintenance can add up to thousands of dollars in just a year or two.

Slip and Fall Risk

  • Droppings on walkways can be very slippery, presenting a dangerous potential for “slip and fall” accidents and lawsuits.

Health Risk

  • Pest birds can spread over 60 diseases to humans and animals such as salmonella, histoplasmosis, and meningitis. The West Nile Virus is passed from sick birds by mosquitoes.

Clogged Drains

  • Nesting materials in electrical equipment can start fires. On roofs it can clog drains and gutters, causing heavy overflow onto the roof-top that can cause leaks and, in extreme cases, collapses.

Inventory Damage

  • Birds roosting above inventory can render the product un-shippable, or worse, may require disposal.Birds Pest Control


Skilled workers will normally refuse to work on equipment or facilities contaminated with bird droppings.
