Common Pests in Chattanooga

Homeowners in Chattanooga know that the humidity lasts all year long, as well as the pests. Pests like ants, spiders, ticks, mosquitoes, and cockroaches thrive in the moist Chattanooga environment. If you don’t have a plan of defense against these pests, you may be putting your home at risk! Pest Authority of Chattanooga has worked for decades to create a safe and effective pest control plan for homeowners in the Chattanooga area. With the help of leading pest control scientists, Pest Authority created Barrier 360, which safeguards your home against dozens of insect species, including those most prevalent in our area. With our Barrier 360 treatment, you and your family can enjoy a pest-free home all year long, guaranteed!  

Ants

One ant in your Chattanooga home can quickly lead to hundreds more. Ants are attracted to food and moisture, which is why you’ll often find them in your kitchen, or even your bathroom. Pest Authority of Chattanooga goes beyond just treating the ants you see in your living space and works to eliminate the entire ant colony, making our treatment methods far superior to over-the-counter methods. Our treatment method is designed to treat and prevent a wide variety of ants, including carpenter ants, fire ants, and little black ants. Protect every inch of your home from ants with Pest Authority of Chattanooga. 

Bed Bugs

Bed bug infestations are a real nuisance. Because they latch onto your luggage, you may bring them home with you after traveling. Since bed bugs are so good at hiding, it could take weeks to realize you have an infestation. These brown, oval-shaped insects will nest in your bed linens, mattresses, furniture, and even your baseboards and walls.

Besides being annoying, bed bug infestations are also unhealthy. Their bites will leave red, itchy welts all along your body. They’ll also stain your linens and clothes with blood spots. Don’t suffer from these freeloading pests. Pest Authority of Chattanooga can get rid of them for good.

Carpet Beetles

Chattanooga is home to a wide variety of beetles. Asian lady beetles, black blister beetles, ladybugs, and more are common in our area. Despite all the different sizes and types, beetles are easily identifiable with their oval shape, hardened shell, and wings. While mostly harmless to people, you still don’t want hundreds of them invading your home. Our Barrier 360 exterior treatments will keep them out.

Cockroaches

Unfortunately, cockroaches are very common to our area of Tennessee. They have a reputation for quick reproduction and resilience, and they are not always easy to find because they prefer to hide in dark locations like cabinets, appliances, and basements. If you discover a cockroach in your Chattanooga home, call Pest Authority right away! Our expert technicians can treat and eliminate your cockroach problem much faster and safer than DIY solutions. With our complete cockroach treatments, you and your family will never have to worry about another cockroach sighting in your home again! 

Crickets

Cricket infestations are a headache. Their loud chirping noises and ability to jump far distances make them easily identifiable, but hard to catch. These yellowish-brown bugs will mostly stay outside, but they may enter your home while seeking shelter from the hot summer air. Since crickets are attracted to moisture, your basements, crawlspaces, and bathrooms are a prime target for an infestation.

FLEAS

A flea problem begins with a household pet and can quickly spread throughout your entire home, making you, your family, and your pet miserable. Because fleas reproduce quickly, it can feel like a never-ending battle when you are trying to eliminate them. At Pest Authority, we believe that your Chattanooga home deserves the very best in flea protection. Our Chattanooga team is equipped with the latest flea treatment and prevention methods to protect your home and family. When fleas threaten your home, call Pest Authority of Chattanooga today! 

Mice

When mice invade your home, it could take a while before you realize they’re inside. Mice can live undetected in your home’s dark crevices and corners – or even in your walls! They are incredibly resilient, great at hiding, and hard to catch. Since mice reproduce quickly, two creatures could turn into a full-blown infestation if you don’t catch it fast enough.

No one wants a mouse infestation in their home. Beyond being annoying, they are extremely hazardous to your health. Mice will eat and contaminate your food, leave droppings everywhere, and could potentially carry deadly diseases. If you have a mouse infestation, let Pest Authority of Chattanooga take care of the situation. We have special treatment plans to get rid of them for good.

Moths

Many different types of moths can be found in Chattanooga area homes. They’re easy to identify with their wings and triangular shape, but they’re hard to catch. Moths are known to fly and circle around artificial lights. While they are harmless, having an infestation of them flying around in your home can be a headache. Let Pest Authority of Chattanooga take care of them for you.

Spiders

If you are one of the many Americans that are terrified of finding a spider in their home, turn to Pest Authority of Chattanooga. We use the latest pest control methods to keep spiders from ever coming near your Chattanooga home. When it comes to spiders, prevention is the name of the game. Our complete outside treatment creates an impenetrable barrier that stops every kind of spider in its tracks, including dangerous spiders like black widows or brown recluses. 

DIY Tips for preventing these pests

If you’re ready to create a pest-proof home, here are a few simple tips you can use to avoid insect and rodent infestations: 

  • Trim foliage, shrubs, and low-hanging tree branches away from your home.
  • Wash your bedding regularly - including your pets' bedding.
  • Plant basil, min, citronella grass, or marigolds to deter mosquitos, flies, and ants.
  • Keep gutters clean and without debris.
  • Ensure that your storage areas stay dry and use a dehumidifier if necessary.
  • Shut windows and doors and make sure they have properly fitted screens.
  • Take your trash out daily and place in a trash can with a secure lid.
  • Fix any moisture problems you may have and repair water leaks.

When you actively take precautions, it is less likely for pests to invade your home. The less attractive your home is, the less likely you’ll ever get an infestation.

Originally inhabited by Native Americans, Chattanooga was named by the Cherokee who founded the town in the 1770s. By the 1830s, Chattanooga turned into a booming city and popular community. Now, it is the county seat of Hamilton County and the fourth largest city in Tennessee. With a population of over 180,000, it is home to many families and young professionals. Located in the eastern part of Tennessee, Chattanooga is surrounded by many natural features. The city is nestled between the ridge-and-valley Appalachians and Walden’s Ridge, with the Tennessee River cutting through. Chattanooga experiences four seasons, with mild winters and hot, muggy summers. The fall and spring months are extremely rainy, which encourages many bugs to seek shelter. Between the city’s geography and climate, it’s no wonder that Chattanooga homeowners play host to many different pests. Pest Authority of Chattanooga is here to help homeowners take back their home. Our Barrier 360 exterior treatments will stop infestations in their tracks and prevent future ones from ever occurring.
