Milford has always been full of forests, natural brooks, streams, small lakes, and ponds. Between roads and surrounding brooks and streams, rich forest has always been one of the beautifying aspects of Connecticut, including parks and preserves like the Charles E. Wheeler Wildlife Management Area at the mouth of the Housatonic River next to Neils Island, Silver Sand State Park, and Welchs Point Park.In spite of their beauty and the immeasurable value these sites offer, they also harbor pests of all kinds. Mice, rats, and wasps are among the most common pests that residents deal with.
During the winter months, mice and rats search for shelter by wiggling their way through tiny gaps in residential and commercial buildings; these include homes, restaurants, warehouses, and food storage facilities. Once inside, they hide during the day and wreak havoc at night, chewing on food containers, electrical wires, and even metal or hard plastic. However, the most dangerous things about these rodents are the diseases they can carry, some of these including leptospirosis, babesiosis, various hemorrhagic fevers, rat-bite fever, hantavirus, and even the plague.
Wasps are another dangerous problem residents encounter in Connecticut. They create nests in eaves, soffits, trees, under porches, or even in the ground. For some, a sting raises a painful, swollen welt that naturally dissipates. For others, it could spur a life-threatening reaction. Serious reactions to a single wasp sting could include irregular swelling, hives, discoloration of the skin, nausea or vomiting, wheezing, or difficulty breathing. For this reason, it’s important to contact professionals right away. Call Fox Pest Control if you see signs of rodents or wasps on your property.
