Problems Carpenter Bees Can Cause in O'Hara Township, PA
If you have wooden structures located on your O’Hara Township property that are made of softwoods, especially if the wood is older and has not been treated with paints or stains, you may start to notice large black bees living on your property- carpenter bees. Carpenter bees are solitary insects; females create individual nests by boring dime-sized holes into softwoods. Eaves, wood trim, wood shingles, playsets, decks, porches, and sheds can all become home to carpenter bees if they are not painted or stained. The good news when it comes to carpenter bees is that while the females are equipped with stingers, they are very docile and rarely sting, and the much more aggressive males are all bark and no bite- as they do not have stingers. The bad news about carpenter bees is that the nests that they create can damage wooden structures found on your property. Carpenter bees prefer to nest alone, but more often than not, several females will choose the same area or even piece of wood to nest in, returning to the same area year after year, causing more and more damages. The best way to prevent these potentially damaging pests from choosing your property or home to nest in is to make sure that wooden structures on your property or home are painted or stained, along with calling for professional help at the first signs of these destructive bees on your property. Our professionals can quickly come to your aid, inspecting your property, confirming if carpenter bees are present and providing effective treatment.
How to Spot Bed Bug Infestations in O'Hara Township, PA
If bed bugs have found their way into your O’Hara Township home you will start to notice some or all of the following signs. As bed bugs feed they may drip blood leaving red spots on linens, mattresses, box springs, floors, drawers, or closets. You will also notice dark streaks (feces) in many of those same places. If there is a large infestation present in your home you may notice a musty smell in the air. Another tell-tale sign of bed bugs is, of course, finding the apple-seed shaped adults in the seams of mattresses, upholstered furniture, behind baseboards, in the cracks of walls, wooden furniture, and/or in electronics. Bed bugs feed on people as they sleep which means that you or your family members may wake up with unexplained bug bites if these parasitic pests are living in your home; although it is important to note that most people will not experience a reaction to their bites. If you ever spot bed bugs or their signs in your O’Hara Township home, immediately contact Witt Pest Management. We have the services available to quickly and completely remove bed bugs from any home! Contact us to learn about our bed bug control options.
TIPS TO KEEP YOUR O’HARA TOWNSHIP HOME PROTECTED FROM MOSQUITOES
While summer in O’Hara Township is largely a lovely experience, one common household invader is notorious for interrupting summer fun outdoors and turning it into a buzzing, biting mess. Mosquitoes are both annoying and dangerous in terms of the diseases they spread from person to person, making their prevention around your property a necessity.
Here are some simple yet effective steps you should start taking around your O’Hara Township home to make it less appealing to mosquitoes during warmer months of the year:
- Repair any moisture problems around your home
- Eliminate sources of standing water from your yard and property
- Keep exterior windows and doors closed whenever not in use
- Install screens on all exterior doors and windows
- Plant mosquito-repelling plants, like mint, around your yard
- Avoid going outdoors during mosquito peak hours, dawn and dusk
- Wear bright, long-sleeved clothing while outdoors during peak hours
Unfortunately, while there are steps you can take to minimize your risk of mosquito exposure around your home, the only way to keep mosquitoes at bay for good is with help from a professional mosquito control provider.
In addition to regularly-serviced monthly visits to handle pests around your O’Hara Township home, Witt Pest Management also offers specialty mosquito treatment services designed to kill these harmful pests around your home and keep them from coming back.
