Common Pest Issues We Treat in Northborough
Mosquitoes are common in Northborough anywhere there is standing water, like Smith Pond or Bartlett Pond. If your home is near one of these areas, keep an eye out for mosquitoes once the weather starts warming up.
They tend to be most active in the evenings during summer, as they like the warm, humid weather. In addition to biting you, leaving red, itchy bumps on your skin, mosquitoes can also transmit a variety of diseases.
Boxelders are a common pest in Northborough because there are lots of forests in the area, like Edmund Hill Woods.
Once the weather starts cooling down, they look for places to shelter over the winter so you may see them trying to make their way into your home. They are much stronger than you might expect given their size, so they can force their way inside through your window seals.
If you’re trying to get rid of existing boxelder bugs, try vacuuming or sweeping them to avoid smashing them. (If a boxelder bug gets smashed, it will leave a prominent red stain.)
Carpenter ants and other wood-loving insects are also common in Northborough, as are mice and other small rodents.
Common types of pests we treat in the area include:
