Because of the cold Connecticut winters, the single most widespread pest problem throughout the state, including Manchester, is rodents. Rodents are attracted to high-population areas. Mice and rats enter homes by wiggling through tiny cracks, crevices, and holes, gaps between utility pipes and the walls, and other chinks in the home’s armor. Once they have access, they search for hiding places, food, water, and good nesting material. They’ll eat anything from food storage or peanut butter to pet food and bird seed. Because their teeth never stop growing, they also have a strong instinct to chew and gnaw on anything and everything available. Unfortunately, both mice and rats tend to carry various diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, hemorrhagic fevers, tularemia, salmonella, and even the plague.
One of the most pervasive pest problems throughout Connecticut and the United States is ants. Ant species that commonly invade homes include pharaoh ants, pavement ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. Of all these types, carpenter ants are the most destructive. Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve through almost any wood. Although carpenter ant colonies only have one queen, they are capable of making satellite colonies in order to expand territory. However, these are extremely difficult to eradicate and have been known to go 8 to 10 years without detection. This makes quick action very important. If you suspect a carpenter ant or rodent infestation, call Fox Pest Control right away.
