Waban MA Pest Control & Termite Extermination Services
Cold, snowy winters and hot, humid summers characterize the climate in beautiful Waban MA. Even if you relish the changing of the seasons, the weather extremes of the Boston metro area can be challenging. Worse yet, the moisture and dramatic temperature changes draw pests and wildlife indoors as they seek food and shelter at local homes and businesses.
Of the pests that give home and business owners pause, bed bugs rank high on the list. These creepy crawlers are tiny and therefore hard to detect. They enter your home with ease but are incredibly difficult to get rid of on your own. Whether you picked them up on your latest travels or they hitched a ride on a recent vintage furniture find, knowing what to look for can help you avoid bringing them home.
These appleseed-sized bugs are most often found in the nooks and crannies of furniture or tucked into baseboards or box springs. They are brown and oval-shaped until feeding, when their bodies balloon and turn reddish-brown. Signs of an infestation include black fecal marks, usually under mattresses or on sheets, or discarded skins. Bed bugs may emit a sweet, musty odor.
Termites are problematic for many of the same reasons as bed bugs. Extensive structural damage has often been done before homeowners realize there's an infestation. While termites don't pose a health threat, they can cost property owners a fortune by making their way through metal siding, plaster and wood into our homes. Once inside, these decidedly un-picky eaters feast on wood framing, cabinets, furniture, flooring and any other wooden items they find.
Subterranean termites, the kind that are native to Waban MA, are aggressive in their pursuit of wood. Signs of termite damage are similar to those created by water damage. Swelling floors or ceilings and a mildewy smell are strong indicators of a termite problem. Subterranean termites' burrowing can also create visible mazes on furniture or walls. Mud tunnels along the foundation signal termites' attempts to find food in your home.
Although an appreciation of nature is important, wild animals can endanger your household. From bats in the belfry to opossums in your backyard, wild animals often pose a threat to the health and safety of humans and pets. Seeking ready-made shelter from the elements and food that's been prepared for their convenience, they flock to the warmth and comfort of our property. While the same precautions that help keep your home pest-free -- keeping garbage can lids tightly sealed, maintaining a food debris-free home, storing firewood as far from the house as possible -- can ward off wild animals, wildlife control laws can get a bit sticky. Enlist the aid of pest control professionals well-versed in local regulations to safely and humanely rid your property of raccoons, opossums, skunks, rodents and other unwanted animals.
