As the stats above show, it’s a great place to live if you’ve got a young family or an affinity for safe suburban areas, and it’s a great choice for folks who love to be out on the water. It’s also a must-see destination for all sorts of suburban insects and lakeside pests.
Suburban living means suburban bugs. There’s space, food, and water. Who wouldn’t want to move in? Below we lay out some of the most common pests that plague suburban homes.
Anyone who’s come home to the unwanted surprise of an ant infestation can attest to the unpleasantness of the affair. It starts with seeing one ant move, then another, then another. Then your vision pans around slowly, like some low-budget horror movie, and you notice that they outnumber you twenty to one. Ants can make their way into your home through the tiniest of cracks, operating diligently to bring back food and water to the colony.
Spiders are another bane of suburban homeownership. They specialize in finding all of the places that you don’t vacuum frequently. The upside to spiders is that they tend to stay out of sight and make a practice of preying on other insects. The downside is, you still don’t want a whole bunch of them webbing up your house.
Most folks try to go their whole lives without ever seeing a cockroach. Few are successful. If you see a cockroach in your home, it’s a good bet that it’s a German cockroach. These brown or dark brown critters are the most widespread species of cockroach here in the U.S. They specialize in making your food, moisture, and warmth their own.
Termite infestations can be seriously devastating to your home or business. Oftentimes termites can invade a home without warning and lay in hiding, secretly thriving throughout your home or yard without any apparent signs. It’s no wonder they’re sometimes called “the silent destroyer”. Termites consume cellulose-based plant matter, something our homes and properties contain a lot of, which makes it crucial to keep a watchful eye for these pests.
Like termites, bed bugs can be extremely troublesome for homeowners. They’re hard to find, elusive, and can pose some potentially serious health risks for your family and your guests. Because bed bugs are “hitchhikers”, they could be brought into your home at any time; in recent years, bed bug infestations have actually been on the rise! Luckily, with the help of Action Pest’s specially trained K9 team, you can find bed bugs and completely eradicate them before they pose a serious issue.
Then there are the critters that like to make their home by a nice, peaceful lake just like Lake Norman. They include the following lakeside loungers.
If ants are the scourge of the indoors, mosquitoes are the terrors of the outdoors. Ever-hungry, disease carrying, and itch-inducing, there is nothing redeeming about mosquitoes. And because they lay their eggs in water, standing water near lakes and ponds are a favorite habitat.
Smoky Brown Roaches
Smoky brown roaches are a type of cockroach that is typically found in basements and on ground-floor levels. They are attracted by standing water, wood, exposed trash, and sewer openings. Once they get inside your home, they spread bacteria on everything they touch, which can pose serious health risks for your family.
While harmless, there are few things more annoying than gnats. At night, they tend to roam in large clouds that you don’t know about until you’ve walked into one. Those clouds are actually mating storms. Think about that.
