The modern history of Langhorne can be traced to a house built by Jack Alexander during the 1600s. However, the area was sparsely populated until the first quarter of the 18th century. As traffic on the road between Philadelphia and Trenton increased, the community that would become Langhorne became a transportation hub for the stagecoach line. Originally, the community was known as Four Lanes End before its name was changed to Attleborough. When the village was incorporated in 1876, the name was changed to Langhorne in honor of an early resident, Jeremiah Langhorne. There are several sites in and around Langhorne that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With so many historic buildings, property owners are proactive about pest control. However, the citizens of Langhorne are also keenly aware of how the present can affect the future, so they actively seek pest control methods that are safe for the environment. Whether the job involves preventing structural damage, eliminating pests that can spread disease or improving the enjoyment of a family’s beloved home, people in Langhorne know that they can rely on Lethal Pest Solutions for prompt service.
Residential Pest Control
Pests in your home can be classified into four categories: those that are annoying, those that are destructive, those that pose a health risk and those that fit into more than one category. For example, cockroaches are known vectors for a variety of diseases, they are definitely annoying and they can stain fabrics, papers and other materials with their urine and feces. Most spiders are simply an unsettling annoyance, but black widows and brown recluses can cause serious problems if they bite a human. Silverfish are not known to spread disease, but they will eat your books, the glue securing your wallpaper and your silk, linen or other fabrics. Other common household pests include ants, fleas, sowbugs, centipedes, earwigs, millipedes and boxelder bugs.
Many historic structures throughout New England have suffered extensive damage from termite infestations. However, modern buildings are also at risk. Termites feed on wood, so any structure with wood siding, wood studs in the walls, wood floor joists or any other component that attracts termites can fall victim to an infestation. Unfortunately, termite infestations can go undiscovered for many years, and by the time that termites are identified, they may have caused thousands of dollars in damage. Whether you own a residential or commercial property, you will need expert, effective treatment to eliminate termites and prevent additional damage.
Bed Bug Control
Once thought eradicated in the United States, bed bugs have made a comeback in recent years. Contrary to what some people believe, bed bugs are seldom a reflection on the cleanliness of the property. Bed bugs have been found in expensive hotels, upscale boutiques, hospitals and airplanes as well as movie theaters, taxis and libraries. They may be brought home from a cruise or a train ride. Bed bugs are difficult to see and are quite reclusive. If you suspect that bed bugs have invaded your property, contact an experienced pest control professional to help you reclaim your peace of mind.
Although over 2,200 different rodents are found around the world, the ones that pose the biggest problems in Langhorne are mice and rats. These two rodents are known vectors for more than 30 diseases that can affect humans, but they are also extremely destructive; their incisors never stop growing, so rats and mice must gnaw constantly to keep them at a functional length. Because they are wily pests, professional assistance is typically needed to deny access to rodents and eliminate an existing population.
