Q: What are the most common pest issues that home and business owners face in the area?
A: The most common pest issues our homeowners face are ants, mice, rats, roaches, and termites. And in businesses, rodents tend to be a problem pest during the winter months – mostly due to the amount of food businesses tend to have on hand.
Q: How do the seasons affect pest activity around Norwalk?
A: Our seasons affect pest activity in various ways. For instance, in our spring months, there's a lot of termite swarms and ant activity, and in the winter months, rodents and wildlife become an issue.
Q: What are some common signs of pest activity around homes and commercial properties?
A: Every pest behaves differently so their signs of activity are also specific to the pest. With rodents, specifically mice and rats, the usual tell-tale sign of activity is damaged or chewed food products. And not just the food – they will chew through cardboard boxes. With ants, cockroaches and termites, the signs of activity are usually seeing the pests. Termites do provide a couple of other signs like mud tubes and, of course, swarms.
In commercial settings, the biggest signs of activity are usually pest sightings by employees or customers. But rodents and other pests do provide signs of activity, like visible damage to products. Bed bugs actually leave bites on people or markings on bed linens.
