Massachusetts has a unique climate with relatively warm summers and very cold winters that bring a great deal of snow. This combination brings about a variety of pests that end up inside your home. When it comes to pest control, prevention is the best practice. Terminix will help you devise a treatment plan to prevent pests before they have a chance to arrive. If you are already facing pest problems, Terminix will help you safely and effectively eliminate them. Knowing what type of pests to expect in your Massachusetts home is one of the first steps toward prevention.
Rodents are a major problem in Massachusetts, as mice and rats commonly invade homes and buildings. Both of these species are considered social animals, meaning that they travel and live in large numbers. Therefore, if you've found evidence of one mouse or rat in your home, there is a good chance you have a few more lurking around. Both rats and mice are known to carry diseases and can contaminate food items or leave droppings around your house. Terminix provides a variety of solutions to help you eliminate these pests in your home.
Like most of the United States, bed bugs can be a major problem in Massachusetts. In recent years, the incidence of bed bugs in the state has increased significantly. One of the biggest challenges of bed bugs is how difficult they are to get rid of. There are some steps you can take at home to alleviate the problem, but elimination typically requires professional help. Bed bugs can live or hide virtually anywhere in your home, which is one of the reasons they are so hard to tackle. The more clutter and ?stuff? you have in a room, the more welcome they will feel. Another issue is that they can survive over a year without any food, meaning the only way to get rid of these pests is by killing them all. Though their bite is not dangerous, bed bugs will bite humans leaving itchy red spots all over the skin.
Cockroaches are quite common in Massachusetts as well. In this state, the German cockroach is the primary culprit. This species prefers moist environments and may often be found in basements or bathrooms near water. German cockroaches also enjoy feeding on human food, which can result in their presence in the kitchen.
Stinging insects are also a major concern in Massachusetts. Yellow jackets are one of the more common stinging pests and can deliver a painful sting. These insects prefer to build their homes in walls and ceilings, which is how they sometimes end up in the interior of your home. Due to the danger of these pests, it is important to call a professional if you discover or suspect that there may be a nest in or around your home.
Living in Massachusetts, you may also experience some other pests common throughout the country such as ants, beetles, spiders and fleas. No matter what type of pests you find in your Massachusetts home, Terminix pest experts have the means to treat and eliminate these problems and keep your home pest free.
