Pests in Saskatoon
Pests are a part of everyday life in Saskatoon and residents of the city commonly encounter nuisances like bees and wasps. Wasps, in particular, are known for their aggressive behaviour and often construct nests in close proximity to residential homes, such as in lawns, trees, and gaps in house siding.
Mosquitoes are another prominent pest problem for businesses and residents in Saskatoon. So much so that city officials have instituted several campaigns to control the damage done by the pests and curb the diseases they spread. Spider infestations are also common in the area and create panic in some people due to arachnophobia.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should you call a rodent control professional for mice?
Even if you’ve only noticed one mouse scurrying around, there is a good chance that a larger number may have taken up residence within your walls. The moment you spot a mouse, call in an experienced and certified removal team like ours. Don’t try to catch it yourself!
In addition, there are some other tell tale signs of mice in your home. Watch out for dark droppings that look like grains of rice in shape and size. Large collections will be found in darker areas of your home, closer to the nests. Foul odours similar to ammonia are also a sign that you have a mouse infestation. Consider calling a rodent control professional as soon as you spot any of these warning signs.
Are mosquitoes a real health threat?
Certain species of mosquitoes are known to carry a variety of pathogens. From viral diseases such as encephalitis to the West Nile virus, these pests can pose a significant threat to those who may have been bitten by an infected mosquito. Mosquito bite marks/scars may also be a potential secondary infection risk. It is important to contact a medical professional immediately if you’re experiencing symptoms following a mosquito bite.
How often should a property be treated for mosquitoes?
The frequency of treatment for a mosquito issue on your property will depend on a variety of factors including the severity of the infestation, the treatment option/options being implemented, and the environmental conditions in the area. Typically, the treatment options focus on targeting both adult mosquitoes in high activity areas and larvae/eggs within breeding sites. If the environment in the area is prone to mosquito infestations, then regular treatments may need to be implemented by a licensed professional in order to effectively control the mosquito population.
What can homeowners do to reduce the risks from mosquitoes?
One of the easiest ways to reduce the risks of mosquitoes is to remove conditions that may aid in the growth of mosquito populations. This can include getting rid of any standing or stagnant water sources on the property such as birdbaths or plastic containers, as these are common breeding sites. You should also drain ditches and fill openings that can hold water for seven days or longer.
Keep your yard well maintained and trim any vegetation such as bushes and shrubs that could provide adult mosquitoes with resting spots. It is important to perform regular inspections of your home and ensure that all door and window screens do not have any holes.
