Lewisville Local Pest Control: Same-Day Service for Pests

Pest Control in Lewisville TX involves more than spraying poison to kill insects. Your local Orkin Pro performs a thorough assessment of your home to understand how pests invade and develop effective control methods.

Rodents are able to chew through a variety of materials including cement and asbestos. A good Lewisville Wildlife Removal company identifies all animal entry points into the house and seals them with professional repairs.


Cockroaches are among the most repulsive of household pests. They spread disease, trigger asthma and allergies in children, and damage property. Several species inhabit Texas, including American, German, and Oriental cockroaches. Cockroaches are resourceful and sneaky pests that enter homes to find food, water, and shelter. Infestations occur quickly, especially since a single female can produce 30,000 offspring in a year.

These pests are attracted to dark and moist areas. They often hide in cracks, around water pipes, and under counters. Use a flashlight to examine tight spaces. Regularly taking out the garbage and storing foods in sealed containers can reduce infestations. Regularly wiping down countertops, sweeping floors, and vacuuming removes excess food that attracts roaches. Defending your home from infestation requires routine pest control services.

An Orkin specialist can help you develop a plan to keep cockroaches out of your Lewisville home. Treatment plans are backed by the Orkin Guarantee.

During a consultation, an Orkin professional will inspect your home’s interior and exterior for signs of cockroaches. If necessary, your specialist can recommend additional inspections and treatments. Using safe methods, your Orkin representative can set bait stations and apply insecticides to critical areas. Foggers, sprays, and aerosols may temporarily knock down cockroaches, but they do not provide long-term control. An integrated pest management program that includes sanitation, exclusion, and targeted baits and sprays is more effective.


While ants rarely cause structural damage, their presence inside a home can be annoying and difficult to eliminate. They invade homes mainly in search of food, but they can also scavenge for water and other resources. Our ant control services are designed to stop them from invading your Lewisville property and to eradicate them once and for all.

Ants are social insects that live in colonies with thousands of members. They have six legs attached to their thorax and two pairs of appendages on the head – mandibles (used for fighting or grasping) and maxillae (for chewing). They have a hard outer shell called an exoskeleton.

In the wild, ants are a vital part of many ecosystems. They help to turn and aerate soils, recycle organic matter, and serve as important pollinators for plants. They also are effective decomposers, breaking down dead organisms and creating healthy habitats.

While ants may appear intimidating, they are a complex and vital part of nature. Like all insects, ants are a highly evolved species that have survived the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinctions, glaciations and global warming. Like all pests, they must be treated carefully to avoid harming humans and other living things.


Termites are wood-destroying pests that require a thorough and professional termite control plan. They are responsible for billions of dollars in damage to homes and buildings across the United States each year. Termites are cryptic insects that do not live out in the open like ants, making them difficult to detect and even more challenging to exterminate. Because they are often mistaken for ants, many homeowners neglect to take preventive or extermination measures until an established infestation develops. In Texas, the most common species of termites are eastern subterranean and damp wood.

Unlike ants, termites do not swarm or fly, so they are difficult to spot. However, if a termite infestation is discovered, clues include small piles of sawdust around the home or signs of swarming. Clicking sounds may also be heard as the insects work and eat within the walls.

Your Lewisville Orkin Pro will perform a thorough assessment of your home using specialized equipment and a scientifically-based approach. The assessment will help your specialist determine the full extent of the termite problem and implement a customized treatment solution. Orkin uses only environmentally-conscious and advanced termite control methods that are backed by extensive third-party research. Additionally, all termite treatments are performed by licensed applicators and supervised by the company’s state-certified applicator supervisor. This ensures that all products are applied correctly and safely to protect your family, pets, employees, customers, and property.


Mosquitoes are a nuisance pest that can carry disease-causing pathogens. The Aedes species of mosquito are particularly problematic for humans, due to their ability to transmit dangerous viruses. These include Zika, West Nile, and Malaria. These diseases can lead to headache, joint and muscle aches, a fever, fatigue, and irritated eyes and skin. The Zika virus also affects fetuses in the womb, causing miscarriages and stillbirths.

Adult mosquitoes are characterized by long legs, a piercing proboscis for sucking blood, and scales on the veins of their wings. They are usually brown with pale B-shaped marks on their abdomens. Female mosquitoes require a blood meal to produce eggs. Different species have their own preferences for feeding on birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.

Most mosquitoes breed in standing water, requiring water that is either flooded or moist. Eggs hatch into worm-like larvae that live just under the water’s surface and breathe through tubes on their tail ends. Depending on the species, larvae may feed on organic matter in the water or consume microorganisms from the water’s surface.

During adulthood, mosquitoes search for host animals by following the carbon dioxide that they exhale and other trace chemicals in their environment. Male mosquitoes do not bite. Female mosquitoes typically oviposit after every blood meal, though some species lay a few eggs several times throughout their lives.
