Because it’s located further inland than cities like Stratford and Bridgeport, East Hartford has a little less humidity by comparison.However, like much of Connecticut, East Hartford still has plenty of small ponds, brooks, and other water features that can support pests of all kinds.The biggest issues citizens in East Hartford may come across are wasps and ants.
Wasps are the most dangerous pest problem throughout Connecticut. Wasps like yellowjackets, hornets, and paper wasps can make nests in eaves and soffits, under house siding, among tree branches, inside wooden or metal fences, or even underground. They’re also hyper-territorial and aggressive. For some people, a wasp sting might only raise a painful welt for a few days. For others, a single sting could be deadly.
Ants are pervasive throughout the entire United States, and East Hartford is no exception. Common house-invading ants include pavement ants, pharaoh ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. Of all the types that cause problems for homeowners, carpenter ants are the most destructive. They use their massive jaws to carve tunnels and galleries through wooden structures. Carpenter ants can live inside a home for 8-10 years and cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage before they’re discovered. The damage they cause is usually not covered by insurance. For these reasons, it’s critical to contact Fox Pest Control right away if you expect an infestation.
