Below are some common pests we can remove from your property.
1. Pavement Ants
Pavement ants are the most common type of ant in Burnaby. They build nests under sidewalks, driveways and other concrete structures. Although their name might suggest that pavement ants are an outdoor problem, they often invade homes. You may find pavement ants in kitchens and bathrooms, near heat sources or where there are food spills.
Pavements ants will not cause structural damage, but they can contaminate food with disease-causing organisms.
2. Carpenter Ants
Carpenter ants derive their name from their nature of excavating wood to build their nests. They prefer damp wood, and you can find their nests in windows, decks, roof eaves, porches, doors, and other wooden structures that have been exposed to water.
If left untreated, a carpenter ant infestation can lead to significant property damage.
3. Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are transported from place to place on clothing, luggage and other belongings. They usually hide in mattresses and crevices and cracks during the day and come out at night. Bed bug bites can cause allergic reactions, which can be severe, and secondary infections.
4. Mice and Rats
Mice and rats often enter homes looking for shelter and food. They can hide just about anywhere, but common hiding places include holes in walls, storage spaces, kitchen cupboards and attics. Mice and rats breed all year round and can transmit over 35 diseases.
Wasps build nests in gutters, eaves, and near plants and flowers. They are also abundant in areas with small insects that are prey for mature wasps. Wasps are known to be aggressive. Their stings can be painful and can cause severe allergic reactions.
Cockroaches are usually found in kitchens, ceilings, and wall cavities. They often enter houses for shelter and food and come out after dark to feed. Cockroaches carry bacteria that can contaminate food, leading to illnesses like gastroenteritis and salmonellosis. They can also trigger allergies and asthma attacks.
