Wentzville is a beautiful city that offers many beautiful things to see and do all year long. However, there are also many pests that call Wentzville home, including mosquitoes, bedbugs, termites. Larger pests such as mice, rats, and moles are also very common in the city. Homeowners go to great lengths to protect their homes from these pests, but success is often difficult when doing it on your own. A Wentzville pest control company can help homeowners reclaim their space and protect it from bugs and other pests in the future.
Bedbugs are some of the most annoying pests to have in a home. These small wingless creatures hide in the crevices of beds and furniture. At night, or when there is an animal or human nearby, they emerge from their crevices to bite the host and feed off their blood. It is important to treat bedbugs as soon as possible, but they are notoriously difficult to get rid of. Bedbugs have also earned the nickname ‘hitchhikers’ because they are known to be transported through suitcases and storage boxes.
Termites are not only annoying, theycause extensive damage to homes that is not only destructive, but also very costly to repair. Termites destroy homes by eating through the wood within the structure. Signs of termites include shed wings, woodwork that sounds hollow when knocked on, sagging floors, termite droppings, and even holes found in wood within the home. Subterranean termites build nests in compound piles and underground, so it is important to watch for these so problems can be treated right away. Termites are very difficult to get rid of, particularly when a major infestation has developed.
Common ants in Wentzville include carpenter ants, pavement ants, black ants, and pharaoh ants. Ants are known for their preference of sweet, sugary foods, but they will also eat almost anything. Ants can travel up to 700 feet from their colony or nest and they leave trails to their food source. These trails help ants find their way back to their nest, but it also provides a directional guide to the food source for other ants. This means that once an ant makes their way into a home, many more ants are sure to follow.
Many people think ants are just an annoying pest, but they can do a great deal of harm, as food an ant has come into contact with can transmit salmonella if eaten. For this reason, it is important to eliminate an ant problem as soon as possible.
Although smaller pests and insects are annoying for homeowners, larger pests such as rats, mice, and moles are often the most unsettling. Each of these wildlife animals requires a different solution, and a professional pest control company will know how to use them.
Spiders are annoying, but Wentzville has only two that are considered dangerous to humans. The first is the black widow spider, which is likely only going to become aggressive if threatened and quite rarely seen. The bite of a black widow spider is not usually fatal for humans, but can make a person quite sick. The other spider that is of some concern is the brown recluse spider. The venom of these spiders is extremely potent and destroys membranes that break down fat, blood vessels, and the skin. Like the black widow spider, the bite of a brown recluse is not typically fatal to humans, but can make a person quite sick.
Even spiders that are not harmful at all to humans should be removed from a home. They are unsettling for many people and a small problem can quickly get out of control.
It is extremely difficult to enjoy your outdoor space when mosquitoes have also made it their home. Many people think mosquito bites are only minor annoyances, but some of these bites can actually produce painful welts. Worse yet, mosquitoes are known carriers of serious diseases, including West Nile and the Zika virus. Other than ensuring there is no standing water around your home and that you keep lights to a minimum at night, it is extremely difficult to get rid of mosquitoes on your own. A professional pest control company will have the effective solutions needed to get rid of these pests.
