Carpenter ants are a problem in Connecticut. These ants are most active in humid conditions, making the Northeast their ideal habitat. They forage for food and form colonies in the sunshine or on hot, humid nights. Once inside the cozy confines of your house, carpenter ants build nests in damp areas like the space below a kitchen or bathroom sink.
These ants create tunnels in wood, causing costly damage to your home’s structure. They’re especially drawn to moist, decaying wood both outside and indoors. A dead tree limb near the house can cause an infestation by providing easy access, so check your trees for dead limbs regularly. Inspect your home for leaks that could attract ants, and keep kitchen counters free of any crumbs or other food scraps.

These parasites are also active in warm weather. They require a temperature of at least 45 degrees to quest. Questing involves laying in wait for an animal or human to pass by; that’s when they attach to the victim. While not all ticks are dangerous to people and animals, deer ticks can spread the bacterial infection that causes Lyme disease. A tick must remain attached for at least 24 hours to cause this disease.
Ticks congregate in tall grass, mulch, and shrubbery. Mow your lawn regularly, get rid of brush and leaves, and remove mulch located near your house. Move play equipment away from wooded areas, and create a three-foot-wide barrier between your lawn and wooded spots with wood chips or gravel. If you need tick control or other insect control services, be sure to call your local exterminator in Wilton at Amtech Personalized Pest Management.
Rodents are another type of pest that will get into your home or office when they get the chance. Most people won’t notice the red flags during the early stages of an infestation, but knowing what to expect can help. A small hole in the perimeter of your house is all that rodents need when they are ready to get inside. Once they gain access, they can chew holes through your walls and get into your food.
These pests can even transmit diseases if you don’t get rid of them. Rodents that get inside of a business can cause the Health Department to shut the business down, and many of them never recover from the damage. Placing traps in your attic, pantry, and basement in advance can reduce the risk of a rodent infestation.
Rodents can also cause problems even after they’ve been eliminated from your home or business. Rat and mouse droppings can also carry diseases, and simply by sweeping them up can be enough to accidentally cause the disease to be transmitted to you or a family member. The best course of action when dealing with rodents is to call your local Wilton pest control management company at Amtech to deal with your rodent problem.
