If left untreated, pest problems can do extensive damage to your home. Once, the damage is done, it can cost homeowners a lot to repair their homes and prevent future damage. Look out for these costly pest problems common in Albuquerque.
Termites feed on wood and can cause costly damage to your home. They live in foundations and window or door frames and are difficult to detect early on. Signs of termites include quiet clicking noises coming from your walls, presence of flying termites, hollowed timber, tight-fitting doors, and hard-to-open windows.
Termite prevention includes reducing moisture in your home, repairing leaking water pipes, replacing rotted wood shingles, and storing firewood away from your home. In the case of an infestation, a professional may use bait stations or Termidor to kill termites. If you suspect you have termites, schedule a termite inspection today.
German cockroaches are known for their rapid breeding and reproduction which makes them difficult to get rid of. Many German cockroaches are becoming resistant to pesticides which poses an even greater threat to homeowners. You’ll commonly find these pests in kitchen cabinets, garbage containers, or under sinks. If you have a roach problem, get it looked at by a pest professional in the Albuquerque area.
The American cockroach is the largest species of common cockroach, measuring at 1.5 to two inches in length. While German cockroaches are tan with dark, parallel lines from their heads to their wings, the American cockroach is reddish-brown with a thorax edged in a dull yellow. German cockroaches tend to live in kitchens and bathrooms, whereas American cockroaches prefer basements, crawl spaces, and drains. Bulwark Exterminating has solutions for getting rid of any species of cockroach.
Just hearing “bed bugs” might make you itchy. They are one of the most difficult pests to get rid of. Bed bugs feed on human blood, and their bites leave itchy red welts on the skin. Due to increased globalization, bed bugs are on the rise again. They travel through luggage, clothing, and furniture. Unique services are required for the elimination of bed bugs. Some exterminators use dogs to sniff out bed bugs since they can be hard to find.
Multiple services of bed bug elimination may be required to break their reproduction cycle. Treatment requires a joint effort with homeowners since they need to thoroughly clean all of their linens, bedding, and clothing in hot water. Frequent vacuuming is also necessary, and all vacuum bags should be thrown away in an outside garbage. Homeowners will also need to seal cracks where bed bugs can hide.
Along with causing annoying itchy bites, fleas and ticks can hurt pets. They both are blood-sucking parasites that may cause inflammation, irritations, and open sores. Certain types of ticks can also cause Lyme disease in both dogs and humans. When treating your home and yard for fleas and ticks, pets must be treated simultaneously. Many pest control companies offer specialized house spraying. Homeowners should avoid old bombing techniques because they leave behind residue and are not as effective as other extermination methods.
After spending time, money, and effort to create a beautiful lawn, it can be frustrating when lawn pests wreak havoc on your yard. Take preventative measures by knowing the early signs of common lawn pests in Albuquerque.
Though some people find them cute, voles are a serious nuisance to homeowners. Voles have a mostly vegetarian diet and eat the stems and blades of lawn grass, leaving unsightly tunnels throughout your yard. Besides vanity-related problems, voles can also do a lot of damage to your shrubs and trees since they burrow into root systems. This can cause these plants to die back or start to lean. To get rid of voles, professionals use live traps, poison bait, mousetraps, and fencing.
Gophers are another furry pest that can cause extensive damage to your yard. They dig underground tunnels that can weaken the integrity of your lawn and if it caves in, you’ll have large holes left behind. Gophers also eat the roots of your grass as they dig and pull down blades of grass. This can lead to brown patches of grass throughout your lawn. They can also carry fleas and ticks which can be transferred to pets. Keep gophers away with physical barriers and raised plant beds.
Weeds are a lawn pest because they stunt the growth of other plants and spread rapidly. They compete for sunlight, nutrients, and space, which can also lead to soil disturbance and loss of native plant cover. Common weeds in Albuquerque include burclover, carpetweed, cheat grass, dandelion, goosegrass, mayweed, mustard, purslane, smooth crabgrass, wild cane, and wild oat. Weeds can be difficult to get rid of because you need to completely remove their roots to prevent them from growing back. Hire a professional weed control service to eliminate existing weeds and prevent the growth of new ones.
Dry rot is a type of wood decay caused by fungi that digests wood unevenly. This makes the wood weak and brittle, leading to extensive damage that is expensive to repair. Prevent dry rot by installing pre-treated timber. If dry rot has already infiltrated your home, a professional can use fungicides to kill existing dry rot and prevent future outbreaks.
When living among wildlife, homeowners need to take preventative measures to make sure these critters aren’t overrunning their homes and property. Keep the wildlife in the wild by knowing the early signs of an infestation.
Rats are known for carrying infectious diseases that can harm human health. They can also contaminate food sources by leaving behind droppings, urine, and hair. Since rats’ teeth grow constantly, they feel the need to chew all the time. This can cause damage to your home and furniture and leaves a mess behind. Build a plan to protect your home from unwanted rats with an Albuquerque rat control service.
Field mice are resourceful little critters, using any materials they can find to build their nests. Most of their damage is done outside where they leave droppings, eat plants, bark, and grass, create tunnels, and burrow through your yard. Field mice may also sneak into homes and businesses through small cracks or loose doors which is why it’s important to keep your home sealed tight. These pests carry fleas and ticks which can transmit harmful bacteria to both humans and pets. If you notice damage from field mice, it may be time to contact a professional.
Raccoons are nocturnal mammals that may look cute and cuddly, but they really should be avoided since they can carry rabies. Raccoon infestations can lead to damage to your home’s wood, shingles, electrical wiring, and insulation. They also can make a mess of your trash, leaving food remnants and packaging around your property. Raccoons also may cause destruction to bird nests and gardens or crops. If you hear loud thuds and crawling in your ceiling, you may have a raccoon problem. Do not try to get rid of raccoons yourself since they carry diseases; hire a professional instead.
Skunks are a nuisance in Albuquerque that seriously stink. They may feed on trash, pet food, backyard gardens, and compost piles. The worst part is, if you try to scare them away, they’ll defend themselves with a stinky spray that is extremely hard to fully wash off. Skunks may create beds under your home, shed, or deck. To get rid of them, hire a professional to set up traps and create barriers.
Squirrels can become a pest when they damage garden plants, gnaw away the bark on young trees, create holes in home siding to nest, dig holes in your yard to hide nuts, and get into your bird feeders. Since squirrels can easily climb and have good balance, they are hard to get rid of. A pest control service in the Albuquerque area can help you reclaim your yard and home from squirrels.
