Common Pest Issues We Treat in Stow
Stow experiences an influx of mosquitoes in the summer. These insects reproduce in standing water, so they are most common around water features like Crow Island or the Delaney Flood Control Site.
If you live near these spots or even if you have a pond or fountain on your property, your home may be more prone to mosquito activity. Mosquitoes tend to be most active in the summertime when the weather is hot and humid, especially in the evenings.
New England is known for its stunning antique architecture, but older homes can be a haven for carpenter ants and other wood-loving bugs.
These large, black ants tend to prefer old, damp wood, but they won’t pass by new construction. Though they don’t eat wood like termites do, they do chew on it to make their nests, weakening the structure over time.
Stow homes near areas with trees, such as the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge or Marble Hill Conservation Area, tend to be at the highest risk of carpenter ant infestations.
Boxelder bugs are common in wooded areas of Stow, and mice and rats are common throughout Stow (just like they are pretty much anywhere).
