Pest Control & Exterminator Services in Foxborough, MA
Serving Norfolk County since 1984
Founded in 1778, Foxborough, Massachusetts is named after a colonial representative to the English Parliament by the name of Charles James Fox. From the original 73 families in the 18th century, the town has grown to a population of roughly 16,870 according to the 2010 census. Over 70% of the homes are more than 25 years old, which means they may be susceptible to invasion from wildlife, insects and other forms of pests because the original building materials may have degraded through decades of exposure to the elements. Even with yearly maintenance it is possible for animals to find or create small holes to borough into to make your home theirs. The state-certified pest control experts at Colonial Pest can provide peace of mind by examining the property and determining what rodent extermination measures may be required.
The older homes in Foxborough are most susceptible to house mice and termites due to their older construction, which consist primarily of wood. Mice love wooden structures because they can gnaw their way through the wood to create small passages throughout it. This allows them to access food throughout the building, and it can make them quite difficult to capture with many conventional traps. Termites feed on the cellulose in the wood, which degrades the structural integrity of their food source quite rapidly. If left unchecked and untreated the wood will need to be replaced, a very expensive process, or if the damage is extensive enough it can be condemned as uninhabitable.
It may be difficult for you to identify whether or not termites or house mice are present in your home, because the signs can be very small. Both house mice and termites leave small, pellet-like droppings where they have feed, but these may be mistaken for dust or debris if you are not looking for them. In addition, termites often make the area where they are feeding droop or sag slightly as they compromise the internal integrity of the components. If you notice either of these signs, or see damage caused by one of these pests then it behooves you to call a rodent exterminator as soon as possible.
