Common Pest Issues We Treat in Shrewsbury
Boxelder bugs are seasonal pests that often plague homeowners in Shrewsbury. Easily recognizable by their characteristic black and red markings, these bugs tend to congregate in large numbers.
Just when you think they have gone away, they come back in even larger numbers! They are most commonly found around wooded areas, like Prospect Park and Rawson Hill.
Firebrats are similar to silverfish. They can enter your home in search of starches, like flour, potatoes, bread, and other everyday pantry items.
Though they aren’t particularly harmful to humans, they can create quite a mess, and they can track bacteria into your food. They prefer areas that are humid, so Shrewsbury homes near natural or man-made water features like Flint Pond, Mill Pond, or Lake Quinsigamond tend to be more at risk for a firebrat infestation.
As their name implies, firebrats like heat. This makes them a common pest in commercial buildings with heat sources like boilers or furnaces.
Mosquitoes are prevalent in the summer in Shrewsbury areas with standing water features of any kind (or size), and mice and other rodents are common pests in Shrewsbury homes located near parks or natural open spaces. As in most residential areas, you’ll also find ants, spiders, roaches and other common pests.
