Termite Treatment in Dyersburg
Here in Dyersburg, there are two types of termites that can cause damage to your home. First, we have subterranean termites. A subterranean termite lives underground or in damp, dark areas such as dead trees and decaying wood. In order to keep moisture inside their nests, they must create mud tubes when they go out foraging for food. It is these tubes that termites use to enter a building.
As the most common type of termite in the United States, drywood termites can infest lumber, furniture, hardwoods, and softwoods. Drywood termites can live pretty much anywhere since they do not require much moisture. As they carve out their nests, drywood termites cause the most damage to structures and support beams.

Air Duct Cleaning in Dyersburg
Do you get tired of dusting so much? The average home produces over 40 pounds of dust each year, most of which accumulates in the ductwork. With time, your ducts accumulate more and more dust. That means that every time you turn on your furnace or air conditioner, you are blowing dust all over your home. Dust buildup can constrict the flow of air and puts a strain on your HVAC unit which can shorten its life and lead to costly repairs.
The dust in your ducts isn’t the only thing lurking there. Your ducts may also contain pet dander, pollen, and mold. Your ductwork can also be used as a highway by insects and pests such as:
- Bed bugs

Stinging Insect Control in Dyersburg
Wasps are one of the most annoying things about spring and summer. It is common for wasps and hornets to build nests on our roofs, behind shutters, and in siding cracks. Wasps and hornets are known for their aggressive behavior. If disturbed, these insects will attack. This can be especially dangerous if you are on your roof or a ladder.
There are many myths about hornets and yellowjackets, one of them is that they die after they sting you. This is false. Only bees die when they sting you. Wasps and hornets actually use their stingers to hunt their prey, so they can sting you multiple times and will not die.
We offer protection against the following stinging insects:
- Paper wasps
- Red Wasps
- Bald-Faced Hornets
- Yellow Jackets
