The Right Solution. Right Away.

At the outset of a new customer relationship, a Dixie Pest Control Specialist visits your property and performs a comprehensive inspection to identify trouble spots and gauge the extent of the issue.

We then work with you to plan a customized solution designed to suit your specific needs and circumstances.

Once we decide on the right treatment solution, the following techniques are employed to rapidly solve your termite problem.

For complete control over pests, there’s no better option.

Protect Your Home

Your home is to share with family and friends not with spiders, ants, silverfish, and other insects.

Our new Perimeter Pest Control Program protects against invading insects by preventing them from coming into the house in the first place. Using professional-grade insect controls, we establish an invisible and odorless “Outdoor
Barrier” that surrounds the perimeter of your home. Although you’ll never know it’s there, it silently works for you, day after day, repelling invading insects away from your home all season long.
During every treatment, your home will receive professional insect protection in each of these eight important areas.

  1. Barrier Strip: We start by treating a strip about 3 foot wide around the entire house.
  2. Foundation Coverage: The foundation is treated, giving special attention to cracks, crevices, and other hidden openings that could allow insect activity.
  3. Ground Covers: Areas covered by ivy or other ground covers get special protection. We spray beneath the foliage because insects often hide in these moist, shaded areas.
  4. Trash Areas: Outdoor areas where trash cans are stored are thoroughly treated, as they are often a hideout for house-invading insects, especially ants.
  5. Mulched Beds: Insects love to hide beneath mulch, so these areas are thoroughly sprayed.
  6. Thresholds: Each outside door receives individual attention as thresholds are a common entry point for insects.
  7. Decks: When accessible, we spray around and beneath decks. These dark, protected areas are favorite breeding grounds for spiders and other insects.
  8. Window Wells and Crawl Space Vents: Because these are among the most common entry points for insects, we thoroughly treat these areas as well as their surroundings.

Ants in your house?

You know how frustrating it can be trying to rid your home or business of ants (especially since trying to do it yourself can actually make things worse). Fortunately, for effective, professional ant control, you can count on Termidor® termiticide/insecticide.

To control ants, it’s important to target them where they live.

Chances are good that ants, and some of the other pests in your home, actually live in nests outside. The key to controlling them is to target where they live—which is exactly what Termidor does. By applying Termidor to the exterior foundation walls of your house, your pest professional creates a treated area of protection.

How Termidor controls ants

In the last decade, the professional pest control industry has been revolutionized by new control technologies, especially in the area of nonrepellents or “undetectable” liquid treatments. Unlike older insecticides, nonrepellents can’t be smelled, tasted, or even felt by pests. So they crawl through the treated area, unaware that the are ingesting treated materials. And merely contacting the insecticide is enough.

Termidor is unique because it controls ants that never make direct contact with its active ingredient. They need only make contact with other ants that have been exposed to Termidor. This “Transfer Effect™” means you’ll see Termidor affecting ants in one to three days and most species will be controlled within the first week following the treatment.

Carpenter ants: a potentially costly problem

Unlike most ants that are more of a nuisance than an actual property threat, carpenter ants can do significant damage to your home. While they don’t actually eat wood, carpenter ants damage wood by excavating and creating galleries and tunnels. If a colony remains present long enough, carpenter ants can actually weaken structural wood and cause severe damage.

Don’t try to kill carpenter ants yourself!

But before you try to get rid of carpenter ants yourself, you should know that most “do-it-yourself” ant control efforts often prove ineffective. Carpenter ant colonies are commonly located in wall voids and other areas of your home that are hard to find. Most over-the-counter sprays are repellent and have difficulty controlling entire colonies.

How Termidor® controls carpenter ants

Termidor® termiticide/insecticide is an advanced undetectable treatment that is professionally applied outside your home. Carpenter ants never know it’s there, so they can’t react to it or avoid it. Instead, they pick up Termidor as they feed and move about and then spread it to other ants in their colony.

Flying ants or termites?

Most homeowners have a hard time telling the difference between flying ants and winged termites. But mistaking termites for flying ants can have costly consequences for your home and property. If you notice flying “ants” swarming in or around your home, you should contact a pest professional to determine if what you’re actually dealing with are termites.

Some of the physical characteristics of and distinctions between flying ants and termites, include:

  • Both have two pairs of wings.
  • Flying ants’ wings are different sizes, while termites’ wings are all the same size.
  • Flying ants have narrowed waists, while termites have thick waists.
  • Flying ants have elbowed antennae, while termites have straight antennae that resemble strings of beads.
  • Don’t be fooled by size or color: flying ants can vary in size and winged termites can be brown or black like ants.

Mosquito Control

Don’t let mosquitoes ruin your outdoor activities.

Dixie’s 7-month mosquito reduction program is a step-by-step approach to reduce the presence of mosquitos in your life.

  • First, Dixie inspects your property to locate potential and already present breeding sites.
  • Second, when mosquito breeding sites are located, Dixie’s licensed professionals use a localized approach so that only those areas where mosquitoes live, such as shrubs, ivy, tall grass, and shaded areas, are treated. Adulticides are applied to cut down on adult mosquitoes and larvicides to prevent them from growing to an adult stage.
