Termite Control in Westminster, CO
Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year, termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.
Things that attract termites include:
- Excess foliage
- Piles of wood
- Dead or decaying trees
- Cellulose material
- Clogged gutters
- Warm, dark places
- Moist soil
If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.
Westminster Rat & Rodent Removal
Rats are one of the most dreaded pests around. With the ability to squeeze through a hole as small as the size of a quarter and chew through glass, cinderblock, wire, and aluminum, rats have no problem making their way into homes.
They can potentially wreak tons of havoc on a home by:
- Contaminating food by eating it, urinating on it, and leaving droppings on it
- Spreading diseases and bacteria throughout a home
- Chewing through wires, which can start a fire
- Chewing through the structure of a home
In order to keep these pests away, seal any holes or cracks along the foundation of your home, store food in airtight containers, keep your home clean, and keep all storage areas dry and clean.
Vole Removal in Westminster
Also known as meadow mice or field mice, voles prefer the outdoors. These grey or brown rodents range from 4 to 8.5 inches in length, have tiny eyes, and have partially hidden ears. Because they do not hibernate, voles are active day and night all year long.
- Animal remains
Voles are known to cause extensive damage to lawns, field crops, golf courses, trees, and more by creating complex underground tunnel systems. These tunnels have multiple entrances and can house several voles. To protect your yard against these rodents, you should keep mulch away from trees, keep your grass trimmed, and remove ground cover.
Westminster Mice Removal
Mice can squeeze themselves through a hole the size of a pen, which means it is incredibly easy for them to make their way into a home. They typically enter homes in the winter months looking for a place that can provide shelter, food, and water. These tiny pests carry over 200 human pathogens, making them incredibly harmful. By leaving urine and droppings throughout a home, they can seriously endanger a family.
To keep mice out of your home, you should:
- Seal any holes along the foundation of your home
- Never leave food out
- Empty your kitchen trash cans often
- Keep your home clean and free of clutter
- Keep storage areas organized, clean, and dry
Wasp Removal in Westminster
There are several different wasp species that call Westminster home, including paper wasps, yellow jackets and bald-faced hornets. These flying insects can build their nests in your trees, under your eaves or even under your front porch! Because of this, homeowners near wooded areas, like the Standley Lake North Open Space Park should be especially wary.
To keep wasps away, you should:
- Avoid leaving meat or sweet drinks sitting outside
- Keep your trashcans sealed up
- Keep your doors and windows shut
- Don’t leave trash lying around
- Cover or fill any holes in the ground
