Pest Control in Bellingham
Bellingham, MA, is a place with a traditional climate, the kind that has warm summers and cold winters while fall and spring tend to be full of days with perfect temperatures. This means that the area experiences typical pest infestations. Mosquitoes and ants arrive in the spring and summer whereas wildlife, spiders and rodents head indoors when Old Man Winter exerts his power over the temperatures. Bellingham’s traditional climate makes pest control a needed service year-round.
What You Should Know About Pests
From insects to small animals, pest infestations come in many forms. They also infest all types of structures including private homes and businesses. Mosquitoes infest backyard havens and well-manicured landscaping while ants make their way into the kitchens of residences and break rooms alike. Spiders happily infest yoga studios and cockroaches make themselves at home in any building. As long as pests have access to food and water, they will infest a structure. At F&W, we provide pest control for both residential and commercial properties.
When It’s Bed Bugs
Bed bugs infest homes and properties to gain access to the food source that they require, which is human or animal blood. They need it to reproduce. Bed bugs are big enough for you to see when they’re present. The insects are oval shaped, and fully-grown ones will measure 4 mm to 5 mm long. Bed bugs belong to the Cimicidae family of insects, and their color is usually a reddish brown because they take on a hue from what they like to eat. We don’t recommend that you attempt to eliminate bed bugs on your own because they are extremely durable.
If It’s Termites
Termites infest homes and properties because the material that forms these structures are their food source. Called the “silent destroyer,” termites can secretly hide while quietly destroying your home without leaving any signs of damage. To survive, termites need food, shelter, moisture and the right temperature. Any home or business can provide them with the conditions needed for them to infest.
These insects have long bodies, and they range in size from ¼ of an inch long to 1 inch long depending on maturity level and species. Termites are tough to get rid of through DIY methods because completely eliminating them may require using the proper chemical and pumping it into their nest.
It Could be Wildlife
Raccoons, squirrels and rodents are usually the kind of wildlife that infests a home or business. They are likely to become your winter guests because these warm-blooded animals prefer to get out of the cold. Along with protection, homes with human inhabitants give them access to food and water. Wildlife will hide in your attic, basement or within your walls, making them a challenge to exterminate. The last thing you want to do is poison them and have them die in a place that’s inaccessible to you. As their bodies decay, they emit an odor that will permeate your home or business. This is why it’s best to leave wildlife extermination to a professional pest control company.
