Sudbury residents experience infestation problems from a number of pests, most notably carpenter ants, termites, rodents, bees, bats, birds, and cockroaches. While the winter months are slower and the pests pick back up again in the spring with termite and bird infestations, pests are a nuisance in Sudbury year-round and require both removal and prevention.
Carpenter Ants – Carpenter ants are named for their wood working capabilities, including destroying the aesthetic and structural aspects of wood-based New England homes even faster than the worst termite infestation. You may notice large black ants foraging near or in your home, sometimes with wings. The winged ants are looking for a new place to establish a nest, so it’s particularly important to stop winged carpenter ants before they take up permanent residence on your property.
Termites – Termites eat through wood quickly once they’ve moved in and are a problem that must be professionally controlled in order to save the structural integrity of your home. Like carpenter ants, termites grow wings in the springtime and set off to establish a new nest and colony, so flying termites are a sign that they’re setting up shop around your home and it’s time to take action fast.
Rodents – Rodent infestations are one of New England’s biggest pest control problems, and include moles, voles, and chipmunks in addition to mice and rats. A female rodent can give birth to hundreds of babies over the course of a year. Each one of the female babies is able to reproduce when she’s only a month old, so you can imagine how fast the rodent population gets out of control when just a few of them move into your living space. Don’t wait to call an exterminator at the first signs of a rodent infestation, which include rodent droppings and nocturnal noises coming from the walls of your home.
Bees – Bees are one of several pests that are beneficial and, in fact, necessary for nature’s survival, as they are responsible for pollinating and helping to reproduce hundreds of thousands of species of plants. Bees, wasps, yellowjackets, and hornets become a nuisance to humans when they build their nests and hives too close for comfort, often on the home’s exterior or nearby trees. Since many types of bees will attack and sting when they feel provoked or to protect their hive, it’s best to have a professional remove and relocate their homes when they’ve built them on yours.
Bats – Bats are another beneficial nuisance that help people by controlling mosquito and other insect populations, but can be scary and threatening to humans when they decide to roost around your home’s exterior. While bats won’t usually attack humans, its better for their feeding and reproductive habits if they stay out of humans’ paths, so it’s usually best to relocate them when they decide to return to sleep at your home each day.
Birds – Birds are often a welcomed form of wildlife in one’s backyard, but when they decide to nest in your eaves or chimney, birds can become a loud and messy, unwanted houseguest. Birds build nests to hold their eggs, so when you start to see birds continually coming and going from the same spot on your home, it’s time to hire a professional to assist you with their relocation.
Cockroaches – Cockroaches hide by day, eat by night, and reproduce at a rapid rate, making them successful invaders that can be very difficult to exterminate. Cockroaches prefer moist conditions, and the warmer the better—so Sudbury’s summer climate is prefect for the roach’s propagation. Fortunately, cockroaches no longer need to be sprayed for, and your exterminators at Colonial Pest Control use both roach bait that the roaches eat and take back to the nest, and an insect growth regulator to stop their reproduction.
