This prehistoric insect is famous for its ability to survive off limited food supplies. In fact, an average cockroach can subsist off nothing more than a used toothbrush for an upwards of ten years. They nest in dark, compact places like kitchen cabinets and crawl spaces. They also tend to reproduce quickly—so if you find one cockroach, it’s likely that there are hundreds more.
Most cases of flea infestation can be traced back to your pets. After a day of romping around outside, cats and dogs are liable to track fleas into the home. Once inside, fleas reproduce quickly and are extremely hard to manage. If you begin to notice small, red bites on your legs and feet, black, pepper-like clusters of droppings around your home, or if your pet seems to be itching more than usual, you may have a flea infestation on your hands.
Clothes moths and pantry moths are both native to Poquoson. While clothes moths feed on animal-based fibers like silk and wool, pantry moths eat whatever they kind find in your cupboards—especially flour, pet food, and grains. Unlike other moths, these species are not attracted to light and indeed often seek dark places, such as drawers and closets, to lay their eggs.
Rats and mice are both common pests in Poquoson area homes. These critters often find their way in through small holes and cracks on your home’s exterior. Once inside, they’ll get to work nibbling through your wires and chewing their way through food packaging. In addition to damaging your property, rodents are known to cause various human ailments. Their bites, urine, and droppings all carry diseases like hantavirus, salmonellosis, and listeria. Protect your home and family by eliminating rodents for good with Pest Authority of Williamsburg.
Silverfish get their name from their shiny grey color and their fish-like movements. This small, wingless insect infests most Poquoson homes during springtime. Silverfish seek humidity and avoid light, so you’ll likely find them in the warm, dark areas of your home. They’re difficult to catch and will feed on just about anything: wallpaper, carpet fibers, clothes, and food scraps.
