Wilmington Pest Pressure

The largest populated city in Delaware, Wilmington is home to thriving businesses and ideal conditions for pests to populate the area. Wilmington is known for cool winters and hot, humid summers, which results in increased pest activity, as they become more active during the summer months and some retreat into homes for winter. Coming to life in the warm months, mosquitoes lay eggs in still or slow-moving water and quickly multiply if left unchecked. Warm weather also invites stinging pests like wasps and hornets in and around homes. Nests may be found near roof eaves and in close proximity to human walkways, presenting problems for individuals prone to allergic reactions.

Wilmington pests can do more than just annoy homeowners. Pests like termites that damage wooden structures can cause significant financial burden. Other costly infestations include bed bugs, which invade bedrooms to feed on unconscious hosts during night hours. Other pests that multiply quickly and operate during the night are mice and rats. Spreading diseases through biological waste, rodents are a problem Wilmington residents should address immediately. Contact Western Pest for rodent and pest control services near you.

Box Elder Bugs Making Their Way Into Homes in Delaware

We recently met up with our Wilmington, Delaware Branch Manager who revealed that his office has received several calls from homes throughout his service area, especially in Wilmington, DE and Newark, DE regarding a not-so-common type of pest: the box elder bug.

Like stink bugs, box elder bugs often become a nuisance this time of year when they seek cracks and crevices that can provide them shelter during the colder months. They are generally not noticed during summer, but often can become an issue when they try to move into homes during fall as they search for overwintering sites.

Once these pests get inside your home, though, there is some consolation: box elders are harmless to you, your family, and your pets, and do not create damage, even if they’re a little intimidating to look at.

In the spring, box elder bugs nest and feed in trees including box elders (from which they get their name), maples, and ash.

When box elder bugs are not feeding in nearby trees, they are most commonly found in:

  • Attics and wall voids
  • Plants you bring in inside for the winter
  • Outdoor furniture and umbrellas
  • Potential entry points like cracks and gaps in your home’s exterior, including your chimney
  • Insulation in basements and crawl spaces
  • Stacked firewood next to your home

Once these pests get inside, it can be difficult to get them out without the help of a licensed pest professional. Please contact your local branch to remove them safely and professionally.

Bat Removal in Wilmington, DE

You may not realize it, but bat removal is a common necessity along the East Coast. These creatures of the night accidentally find their way indoors frequently and, if given the opportunity, they will come back year after year.

Western’s Regional Sales Manager, Paul Filardo, marked Wilmington, DE as a hotspot for bats. “We do a lot of bat work there. They’re often found in attics and many people don’t realize it. By that point, there can be a large number of them,” explains Filardo.

It’s important to note the safety requirements when dealing with bat removal. “You must remove them safely because they’re very beneficial for the environment,” says Filardo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service (but at a high price). The service is good & safety for children is considered. However, with the high price and a fixed income, we will have to reconsider plan in the future.
