Pests in Oshawa/Durham/Quinte
Structures in South Eastern Ontario are faced with a variety of destructive pests. Carpenter ants and carpenter bees are insects that can cause particular damage to structures. Carpenter ants excavate the wood to make a nesting site and can cause serious damage to a home before they are discovered. Carpenter bees however make holes in wood and deposit their eggs inside the holes. They commonly attack wood on the outside of homes and can be very damaging to decks, wooden patio furniture, wood siding, and even structural lumber.
Inside of buildings Silverfish and Carpet beetles are common household pests in the area. They feed on many of the items that people have in their homes and have been found eating books, magazines, tissues, wrapping paper, and cardboard. Carpet beetles are small insects that live in the garden and move indoors to deposit their eggs. The immature carpet beetles, called larvae, feed on many items and can attack furs, feathers, woolens, and other natural fibers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need pest management services to get rid of carpenter bees?
Carpenter bees are notorious burrowers and stubborn pests. Since they tunnel deep into the wood, they can be a challenge to remove. Galleries within colonies and nests must be treated individually and require specialized equipment. For safe and effective control of carpenter bees, it is important to contact a licensed pest control professional.
What time of year do carpenter bees come out?
Carpenter bees tend to come out in the springtime, as they are looking to establish the hive. This could mean wood on your property may be damaged as a result. If you are noticing early signs of a carpenter bee nest on your property, you may want to contact a licensed pest control company to avoid a larger issue on your property.
Why do I suddenly have carpet beetles?
Carpet beetles can enter your home from exterior access points. These include cracks, crevices, and torn screens, though sometimes these pests can come from breeding sources within your property. Once they have established themselves inside your home, you may start noticing adult carpet beetles along window sills.
Should I be worried about carpet beetles?
As their name implies, carpet beetles are known as ‘fabric pests.’ This means that they commonly infest carpeting, upholstered furniture, clothing, and other fabrics in the home, damaging the materials in the process. Contacting your local Orkin Canada branch can help resolve an infestation before it worsens.
