Pest Control & Exterminator Services in Newton, NH
Serving Rockingham County since 1984
Newton, New Hampshire was originally a part of Salisbury in Massachusetts. In 1749, the town was split off and renamed Newtown, which was the name it was known by for just under a hundred years. In 1846 the name of the town was shortened to Newton. From that point on it has remained a small town in close proximity to Boston and Manchester. The median income of its residents is 82,000 dollars, and more than 65% of the homes have 3 or more bedrooms. The size of these homes means that any pest infestation may cause severe damage, which may cost thousands of dollars to repair.
Types of Pests in Newton
There are many types of nuisance wildlife that make the region around Newton their home. The area sees most species indigenous to New England, though squirrels, bats, and mice are some of the more problematic ones. All of these species carry diseases capable of infecting humans. That is why they should be dealt with as soon as their presence is detected. A professional pest control specialist will inspect the premises of a home to ascertain the level of the infestation. Once they have determined the severity, they will propose a plan to remove the pests. In addition, they will provide you with a list of preventative options to help stop the infestation from reoccurring.
Squirrels are particularly problematic because they have adapted to living with humans, and in buildings. Once they have started nesting inside of a building they can grow and breed at a high rate. This means a small infestation can grow throughout the year and lead to major issues including the spread of powassan virus and tick fever.
Bats, both the big and little brown species, are insectivores that dwell in both natural and manmade structures. When they live inside of structures they are most often noticed in the early morning or evening as they take flight to go hunting. It is hard to distinguish a bat infestation from a mouse infestation unless you see the bats directly, because they are relatively calm when in the home. When they move it may sound like a hollow scraping or scratching in your walls or ceiling.
Mice are one of the greatest problems a homeowner faces because mice can adapt very quickly, which makes trapping and killing them without professional assistance very difficult. A home pest inspection can help identify the number and type of pest in your home, while the certified inspector can start placing traps in a humane and sanitary way.
