Katy Pest Control

Preferred Exterminator for Spider, Ant, Mosquito, Cockroach, Termite & Rodent Control

Katy, TX is one of the largest cities in the Houston area, and it continues to grow. The rapid population growth in the Katy area has brought more homes, businesses, and residents. But those residents aren’t just humans and their pets. Pests love to go where the people are, and there sure are a lot of them in Katy. Shopping centers, residential areas, and parks are just some of the perfect places for pests, especially in the summer. Mosquitos will keep you swatting all day as they will be turning any standing water they can find into breeding grounds. Without proper care, your own backyard could become a new home for the buzzing bothers.

Pests like cockroaches and mice also become a problem, but they are invasive. Looking to beat the heat, insects, and rodents will make their way inside your homes and businesses throughout the summer. Once they get indoors, they can quickly reproduce and create a colony if not removed via pest control in Katy, TX.

Common Issues Demanding Pest Control in Katy, TX

While Katy residents tend to experience issues to varying degrees with all the pests that can be found in the Houston area, there are specific pests in the Katy area that are more prevalent, namely fire ants, spiders, and cockroaches. Not only does each come with their own host of issues, but each one also requires a slightly different method to deal with and eliminate them, and there is simply no permanent do-it-yourself (DIY) solution that will help you get rid of this pest problem yourself.

Fire Ants

Fire ants may look just like other ants to the untrained eye. But these little pests don’t behave like other ants, as they’re quite vicious. If their mound gets disturbed, they immediately swarm, climb, and start attacking. If you have ever been bitten by a fire ant, you know how painful their bite can be.

After all, they were given the name “fire ants” because their bite is akin to pressing a lit match to your bare skin. Their sting causes red hive-like lesions that burn and itch. If you’re unlucky enough to step on their mound, be wary. Multiple bites from an angry colony can cause a severe reaction in anyone, even if you are not allergic.


Texas, in general, is home to a large number of spiders. Although there are some venomous spiders in the Katy area, most are non-venomous and therefore pose no threat to you, your loved ones, or your pets. Though either way, no one likes finding spiders in their homes, including our own Katy pest control technicians. Spiders find their way into your home in search of food, so if you’ve started to see some spiders inside, we can guarantee you that there are other pests in your home that you simply have not spotted as of yet.


Cockroaches are filthy pests and they carry a number of bacteria, including some very serious illnesses. But despite what a lot of Katy residents appear to think, cockroaches don’t just seek out the dirtiest houses on the block. While keeping a clean, uncluttered home will help reduce your home’s appeal to cockroaches, there are countless things in your home that can appeal to cockroaches.

For example, your pet’s water bowl isn’t just a great source of water for your pets; they’re a great source of water for cockroaches as well, and like us, cockroaches need water to survive. Cockroaches also eat a number of things that you wouldn’t think of, such as cardboard, soap, and even human hair.

While fire ants, spiders, and cockroaches are the pests you are most likely to see in the Katy area, Texas is home to a number of different pests that you may run across in your own home. Don’t succumb to living with these insects and pests. Call the pest control experts. We will get rid of them for you and create a barrier around your home to keep them out of your house!

How To Prevent The Need For Termite Control

  • Elevate all wood off the soil - If you have wooden floorboards resting on soil then you might as well invite termites into your living quarters. Elevate all wooden floorboards off the ground and make sure to keep your fire wood off the soil as well.
  • Consider a dehumidifier in sketchy places - If there is a part of your house that gives you pause when you're considering its susceptibility to termites the install a dehumidifier to avoid needing our termite control experts because termites love humid conditions.
  • Avoid using mulch - Like plants, termites love mulch because it keeps moisture levels high. While it doesn't provide the nutrients they need to eat, it does give them hospitable conditions. Try using substitutes like gravel or rocks and if you must use mulch keep it away from your home.
  • Act quickly on any and all slab leaks - Not only can slab leaks throw off the foundation of your home, but they can create a welcoming environment for termites, so act quickly here to avoid needing to call in our Katy termite control team.

Signs You Need Rodent Control in Katy, TX

  • Sounds at night - As both rats and mice are nocturnal they will be looking for food and water sources throughout the night and may cause a noisy ruckus in their search.
  • Footprints - Depending on the size of the print, you can distinguish if you're dealing with a rat or a mouse. A rat will have a foot almost an inch in diameter while a mouse has a foot about a quarter inch long. You may also see tail prints and should note them to our Katy rodent control experts upon their arrival.
  • New holes in screens or trash cans - Especially as the winter drags on, rodents may become increasingly desperate in their search for food and water and may chew through whatever they can. Rats have bigger teeth and are more able to chewing through tough materials.
  • Daytime sightings - While rats and mice hunt at night time, if you see them outside during the night you're likely okay as it's just their hunting route. But if you see them during the day call in our Katy rodent control experts because they're likely nesting in or around your home.
  • Signs of a nest - Rodents usually like to nest in small enclosed areas and might use insulation or collected fabric for additional cushioning.

    Rachael W.

    "We have been faithful customer's for many years in 2 different homes in The Woodlands.  The guys were always professional and left service cards at the door.  When we moved to the last home in 2014, we had a major cutter ant issue!!  They appeared out of nowhere and were destroying everything in sight!  I called the office in a panic and the gal got someone out the very next day.  He not only took care of all the beds, he followed the ant trail all the way to the back of the preserve and knocked those suckers out! We now live in Denver, Colorado. I was so pleased to find a locally owned Preventative Pest control - they are awesome too. When we move back to TW, I'll just pick right back up with you guys!"
