The mountainous terrain of Colorado makes it home to a variety of different and insects and rodents. While these species play a critical role in the state's ecological environment, when they enter your home, they are nothing put a nuisance. As can be expected in pretty much any state in America, Colorado faces its share of problems with the common pests such as cockroaches, bedbugs, termites and ants. Some of California's unique pest problems include a variety species of beetles, boxelder bugs, and rodents such as mice and voles.
When it comes to beetles, these insects most commonly become household pest problems when they feed on human food. Sawtoothed grain beetles, carpet beetles and flour beetles are all prominent pests in this state. The Sawtoothed grain and flour beetles are most often found in items in your pantry such as flour, cereal, corn meal or other processed grain foods. Conversely, carpet beetles prefer to feed on animal skins and furs. In your home, food for carpet beetles can come in a variety of forms, from dead insects to fur clothes. These are only a few of the types of beetles that you may encounter in your Colorado home, and prevention and treatment services are the best way to protect your home from an infestation.
The boxelder bug is another very well known pest in Colorado. Per their namesake, these bugs primarily feed on the seeds of the boxelder tree. However, they can also be found on many other types of plants. Though these bugs start out as an outdoor problem, in the fall and winter, they often move inside to escape the cold temperatures. It's no secret that any bugs inside your home are considered a nuisance, but the boxelder bug is harmless. Many argue that the most effective way to prevent problems from these pests is to remove their source of food from around your home; boxelder trees or other plants they feed off of. However, this isn't necessarily the most desirable course of action, which is way Terminix offers treatment plans to help you avoid any problems resulting from these pests.
Another major concern for Colorado home owners is rodents. Rats, mice and voles are common offenders. Arguably even more bothersome to have in your home than tiny insects, rodents also present a range of problems for your home. These pests can cause structural damage when they enter and exit a building. They also carry a range of diseases that can be spread through their excrements they leave around your house. Rodents are also attracted to food items in your home, and can contaminate these products.
Whether you have one of the above mentioned pests in your home or any other common critter, it's important to take action to protect your home and family. Terminix pest experts can provide you with services that treat existing problems and prevent future ones. While there are 'do-it-yourself' remedies, pest control is best left to the experts with treatment plans that will ensure effective elimination of pests without harm or risk to your family.
