These are the pests we commonly remove from homes
Although you can’t hear them, wood destroying organisms could be eating away at your home, without you even knowing. Defending the wood beneath your home from these insects is crucial. Repairing damaged wood understructures is costly, but with our help, the following pests can be taken care of before the damage becomes extensive:
- Carpenter ants
- Subterranean termites
- Wood beetles
The most common wood-destroying bugs are termites, which are most active during the warmer months and mornings. The ‘swarmer’ termites are scouts looking for fresh territory to establish new colonies, so it’s crucial to get your home ready by taking precautions. They are particularly damaging to structures made of spongy lumber, which makes a good spot for colonies to enter and leave a hollow shell behind. These pests and others like it are difficult to catch because they can enter homes using tiny gaps in asphalt, in-fill patios, and expansion joints. If you encounter these insects, leave them alone or they’ll relocate to avoid being found again.
Insects are commonly found in homes, and along with being a nuisance, some of them can cause painful bites, stings, allergies, asthma, food poisoning, diseases, decreased quality of life and lowered property value. Contact Blake’s Pest Control if you have the following insects in your home:
- Small ants
Usual entry points include windows, gutters, and cracks, which are perfect for small ants to crawl through. Make sure they’re sealed as well as possible to avoid them altogether. Pests and insects like carpenter ants are attracted to pools of water and food that are left out, so be sure to sanitize frequently as well. In addition to sealing and screening windows, you should also inspect weatherstripping, door sweeps, cracks in walls, and clean out wet leaves or other organic debris.
Mice and rats go inside homes in search of food and warmth. Rodents are notorious for burrowing in walls and cabinets where they cause damage, leave droppings, and spread disease. It’s a well-known fact that rodents cause allergic reactions in humans and transfer illnesses and viruses like Hantavirus, rat bite fever, and salmonellosis. Feral rodents are pests that gnaw through drywall and wiring with their strong, oversized teeth, which can cause a lot of damage in your property. These rats or mice chew on hard surfaces to file down their large incisors, but grains, fruits, and other produce are their main source of food. They are also capable of contaminating their environment, causing them to be hazards to your health as well.
