CT Pest Inspections for the Spring Season

Spring in Connecticut is a reminder of the power of nature to regenerate itself. Wherever you live in CT, the trees burst into bloom.  After the cold and icy grip of winter, spring is full of the promise of warmer days to come. Spring in CT also signals the emergence of insect and pests which is why it is the perfect time of year to order a pest inspection for your home or property.  It seems these days everyone is referring to pest management.  Even the with insect and pests is to kill them dead as fast as possible.  So, yes, when spring arrives, CT pest control professionals are gearing up to battle with termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees and other pests. For homeowners throughout CT, spring signals the presence of termites when their winged termite swarmers show up on window panes, attracted by the sunlight. What most do not know is that their home has likely been infested with termites for several years until the colony reaches a point of sending the swarmers out to establish new colonies. Annually termites do more damage to homes throughout the CT than the combined effects of storms, fires, and earthquakes. Termite damage is frequently not covered by homeowner’s insurance. It is estimated they cause $5 billion in damage every year. Termites aren’t the only insect that can inflict property damage, a colony of Carpenter ants, often several thousands in numbers, can enter a home overnight and begin to burrow into its wood. Pest management professionals in CT always urge consumers to have their homes and workplaces regularly inspected for signs of insect or pests. The tendency, however, is to wait until...

Conditions Condusive to Termites in CT- Order a Pest Inspection today

The first thing you need to know is that any Connecticut structure containing wood or cellulose material provides a natural food source for subterranean termites. Even structures that are mostly steel and concrete are vulnerable to termite attack. The list below is to provide some general conditions conducive to termite infestation that  may warrant an inspection: Earth-wood contact Firewood stacked against foundation Wood debris in crawl space Wood mulch (within 3 ft of foundation) Faulty grade Insufficient ventilation Moisture Scope of a Wood Destroying Insect Infestation Report in CT A trained and qualified CT pest inspection professional will conduct a careful inspection to determine the presence or absence of visible evidence of infestation from wood destroying insects.  Those areas, which are readily accessible and where infestation was most likely to occur will be inspected. No inspection is made in areas, which require the breaking apart, or dismantling or removal of any objects. The inspection covers the readily accessible areas of the property which permit entry. Special attention was given to those accessible areas, which are known to be particularly susceptible to attack by wood destroying insects in CT.  The inspection DOES NOT  include areas, which are obstructed or inaccessible at the time of inspection. This is not a structural damage report. A pest inspector is not ordinarily a construction or building trade expert and, therefore is not expected to possess any special qualifications, which enable him to detect the extent of structural damage if damage or other evidence of wood destroying insects is noted in this...

CT Flying Ants – Need a Pest Inspection?

Now that the rains have started the CT flying ants will start swarming. Do you need  a Pest Inspection?  Thousands male and female reproductives, will leave the nest in order to create new nests as they pair off, drop their wings and mate. Males die fairly quickly after mating, while females focus on getting in the ground to lay her eggs before being eaten by a predator. Flying ants are often mistaken for termites in Connecticut. There are 3 easy ways to tell the difference: Ants have a needle like waste and termites do not Ants antennae are bent (elbowed) and termites are straight The wings on ants have two pair of different lengths.  Termite wings are all the same length Swarming ants may have you thinking … oh no … termites? Don’t let a hyper pest control salesperson sell you a termite treatment until you have an inspection done on your CT home or property. All ant species produce winged ants. The winged variety of ants are almost always the reproductive males and females of the ant colonies. They are most often seen a day or so after a hard summertime rain, swarming out of the ground to form massive clouds consisting of millions of individuals. Flying ants, like termite, may also swarm indoors in Connecticut. This usually happens when the ant colony already exists somewhere within the structure. Carpenter ants  sometimes make their homes indoors.  Flying ants are not dangerous to humans, even if they do show up indoors and freak you out. Flying ants only appear for a day and then disperse widely to start new colonies. However,...
