Ants

These are the largest ants that get into our homes. Workers range in size from ¼ to ½ an inch in length and are black or a mixture of dark red and black. You should have no trouble identifying these ants because their size gives them away, every time. 

In nature, carpenter ants tunnel in logs, dead trees, and other decaying wood to establish their nests. When they come into a yard, they will search for soft targets first, such as an untreated deck or an old fence. If they get into your home, they will attack softwood first but are capable of moving to the hard, sound wood of a home. 

Prevention tips: Keep leaves raked away from your foundation walls. Make sure your mulch is less than 3 inches deep. Keep shrubs, tree limbs, and vegetation trimmed back away from your home. Address any leaky spigots or hoses to reduce moisture. Inspect your gutters to make sure rainwater is being channeled away from your home and not soaking your outside walls and perimeter soil. Refrain from stacking wood near your home. Reduce insects in your yard to reduce one of the food sources that attract carpenter ants.

Bed Bugs

At an impressive 1 ⅜ to 2 ⅛ inches in length, these are the largest cockroaches that get into our homes. They are chestnut brown with a darker head and a tan-colored back that has two dark chestnut dots, giving the appearance of a figure 8 when viewed at the right angle. 

American cockroaches require a lot of moisture and will hang out in moist shaded areas around a home. But they don’t have to live on your property to invade your property. These insects can travel farther than 300 feet in search of food and living spaces. When they explore exterior walls and find entry points, they can create many issues inside a home. Roaches are linked to the spread of 33 kinds of bacteria, including salmonella and E. coli. They are also known carriers of at least six parasitic worms. 

The control of American cockroaches begins with a control of moisture around your foundation perimeter. Address leaks and moisture conditions both inside and outside your home to resist cockroaches. Trim tree branches to allow sunlight into shaded areas that stay moist around your home. Keep leaves, sticks, and other organic debris raked up. It is also important to control food sources that can attract cockroaches. Keep trash in sealed receptacles and clean your receptacles routinely. Keep compost away from your outside walls. And refrain from putting pet food outside. For professional assistance with American cockroaches, go here.
