Massachusetts Pest Control
From the historic Freedom Trail to man-made land and under-sea tunnels, we have unique elements to deal with throughout Massachusetts. For better or worse, this not only applies to geography, but to entomology as well. Massachusetts Pest Control may not have the same pest lineup as the southern states, but the complexity may be just as high.
So Much to See
Massachusetts may be small, but there is so much to see and do throughout the state. If you take a trip focused on history, you will see a whole different side of the state than if you are coming under the hat of an outdoor enthusiast. The same is true with Massachusetts Pest Control. Each potential pest has different potential:
- entry points
- places of harborage
- food sources
- hydration needs
- reproductive habits
- threat to structures
- impact on goods
- health implications
Interior and exterior inspections should be done regularly – at least as frequent as the seasons change. With certain pest lineups, sensitive areas, or susceptibilities, frequency of attention. These inspections need to be on the look out from the perspective of:
- Flying insects
- Crawling insects
Keep in mind that even within each category, individual species will differ. Quick and accurate identification of pests or pest invitations that need to be addressed will keep you ahead in the Massachusetts Pest Control efforts.
Getting Them Out and Keeping Them Out
Just like uncle Eddie that likes to pop in unexpectedly, pests are going to find you at some point. Having a plan in place will help reduce the potential impact and speed up the time until they are gone. Dealing with pests and staying ahead of them requires the use of the right tools. Tool selection is typically a combination that leads to each helping the other be more effective. Pest control in Massachusetts tools include:
- Accurate Identification
- Habitat Modification
- Biological Controls
- Chemical Controls
- Mechanical Controls
- Follow up and Adjustment
Some tools will have overlap impacts on different pests, but others will be quite specific to a single pest. For example, humidity reduction will impact psocids, cockroaches, silverfish, and fleas. On the other hand, removing one food source may affect one species of ant, but not another on the same property.
Even in the Cold Hard Winter
MA has some pretty harsh winters and even harsher winter events. It may lull us into a false sense of security that it will take care of the pests. The truth is that it does not. Pests knew how to survive a nor’easter long before we showed up and built homes and businesses that make it even easier for them to survive. The fact that we have such dramatic swings in temperatures and humidity can actually make it easier for pests to access areas we would rather they stayed out of.
