By acting quickly, individuals can avoid the structural and financial damage that is often associated with severe infestations.
Termites and Roaches
Termites and roaches are critters that can establish ground colonies rather quickly. While termites can destroy wooden structures within just a few weeks, roaches typically build nests behind walls and underneath fixtures. Roaches can leave behind droppings and egg capsules, which can be particularly problematic for allergy sufferers.
Mosquitoes and Wasps
Mosquitoes are usually found near areas with standing water. Because mosquitoes require host blood to lay eggs, the females generally seek out humans for nourishment. Mosquitoes can pass West Nile virus, yellow fever and malaria to their victims. Wasps and bees, which build nests in trees and gutters, are known for their powerful stings. The venom can cause severe allergic reactions in some people.
Birds and Other Wildlife
Birds, rodents, and other larger species can also cause problems for homes and businesses. Birds can leave droppings on sidewalks and tables. Mice and rats, on the other hand, can invade basements and attics. In areas that are a bit more rural, squirrels, raccoons and skunks can also present debilitating problems. Once they've begun to nest, they can damage support structures and invade kitchen areas.
Individuals who are currently dealing with infestations from any of the above species will want to seek professional assistance before the problem grows worse. At Flash Exterminating, we can identify the pest species and immediately put together an action plan that will lead to eradication. Interested parties can call for a free quote.
Williamsburg Pest Control
There are many pests that can enter homes throughout the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, including ants, termites, mice and rats. Each of these insects and rodents are unwanted visitors, and they can even cause your family to deal with health issues. Fortunately, you can turn to our experienced team of pest control technicians to take care of the problem.
How Do Pests Enter My Home?
Ants, termites and other small insects can access your home due to tiny cracks in your windowsills, entryways or bricks. Larger pests such as rodents will typically get inside a building that has foundation cracks or other structural issues that provide them with a large enough hole. With this in mind, it is imperative to isolate the problem and correct it instead of simply exterminating the rodents or insects that are currently present in your house. After all, failing to repair cracks and holes will make it easy for additional pests to come in.
Are Insects and Rodents Dangerous?
Although there are many insects that are relatively harmless, it is important to take action if you have termites or ants in your home. Termites can cause extensive damage that will leave you needing to pay for exorbitantly expensive repairs if they are left untreated. Some species of ants, including fire ants, are problematic because their bite is very painful. Additionally, many other types of ants can harm electrical systems and wood.
Rodents are often responsible for wood damage and chewed wires, and this can end up leading to serious issues such as an electrical fire. It is also important to note that mice and rats will occasionally bite people, and this is dangerous because they are known to carry diseases.
