Major Pest Threats in Boston

Carpenter ant_guarding_its_nestCarpenter ants are common in Boston and form militant lines leading to your home. They also invade businesses, such as restaurants and office break rooms. They search for food crumbs on the floors, sticky spots on countertops and droplets of water on anything they can find. Once inside, they contaminate food items and can even get into wiring and electrical equipment.

Bed bugs are also a concern in Boston, as these pests multiple quickly and feed on human blood. They get into your home by latching onto luggage, clothing and furniture after you've visited an infested area. Bed bugs don't spread disease, but they do cause welts and rashes upon biting their victims.

Mosquitoes threaten people and pets throughout the world. These pests thrive in moist areas and breed in water, and they spread Lyme disease, West Nile virus and other diseases through their bites. They also cause heartworm in pets, which can kill the animals if they go undiagnosed. It takes professional pest control to eliminate mosquitoes from an area because of their resistance to over-the-counter repellents.

Termites attack in a variety of ways, from just below the ground to high in the air. They resemble big-headed ants but feast on wood, paper and similar materials. Termites cause billions of dollars worth of damage every year in the U.S., and it's not always easy to spot their presence until it's too late. Look for small piles of sawdust around your foundation or burrows in wood siding and outdoor furniture.
