Pest Control & Exterminator Services in Danvers, MA
Serving Essex County since 1984
The town of Danvers, Massachusetts was originally known as Salem Village and has strong associations with the historical Salem witch trials, yet it hasn’t achieved the cult status of Salem itself. From a pest control perspective, that’s auspicious because it means that the 26,000 residents of this North Shore locale don’t have to cope with some of the less advantageous effects of tourism – namely trash, bed bugs, and traffic congestion. That doesn’t mean, however, that Danvers is safe from the common pest infestations that plague homeowners and businesses alike all over the state.
Because of Danvers’ proximity to the Danvers River and various marshlands, the town itself can become an inadvertent breeding ground for pests like mosquitos and may be particularly hospitable to moisture-loving pests like termites, carpenter ants, and fungus gnats. While the livable interior of homes and other structures in Danvers, MA may not be particularly inviting to moisture loving pests, bugs and other invaders may find the moist wood in walls, wet soil in yards, and other damp areas very attractive in both warm and cold weather.
The best way to deal with pest infestations in moist areas is to do what you can to promote drier conditions. Damp areas inside the home can benefit from dehumidifiers, ventilation, and heat – applied in conjunction with repairs to the most common entry points for pests. A sump pump can keep wet basements drier, and there are even steps you can take to ensure proper drainage in your yard soil.
