Common Pest Issues We Treat in Bloomfield
Boxelder bugs are a common annoyance in and around Bloomfield. Most often found near boxelder or maple trees, boxelder bugs can be a particular problem for Bloomfield residents in the fall.
As the weather cools, large masses can enter homes in search of a warm place to live in during the winter. It’s common to spot boxelder bugs this time of year around your windows and doors, trying to get in.
In March and April, they will want to get back outside to eat fallen boxelder seeds and newly developing leaves on boxelder trees or maple trees, so you might see them again as they try to get back out of your home.
Another unwanted pest, carpenter ants are commonly found in Bloomfield because they thrive where there is damp, aged wood and water. No wonder they love it here!
In the spring and summer, often after a rainy day, flying carpenter ants will emerge to swarm and mate in the air. The new young queens will then land on the ground, break off their wings, and look to start a new nest.
Carpenter ants love to nest in homes because they contain wood to nest in, water to drink and often food as well. If they do enter your home, you’d better beware: their nests can cause severe structural damage over time.
