Oregon’s Most Hated Household Pests

Noticing a pest infestation in your home can be a stressful experience, but you can avoid these issues by taking steps to prevent pest infestations in your home. The climate of Southern Oregon is variable enough for many types of pests to thrive, and A-One Exterminators in Southern Oregon can help you handle them all.

Insects

Roaches, ants, ticks, weevils, and beetles can all breed quickly and cause serious problems for your home’s overall safety. These pests may seem like nuisances at first but they can potentially endanger your family by spreading diseases, contaminating your stored food, and ruining household items and furniture. 

Rodents

Mice and squirrels can wreak havoc on a home. They often find their way between walls, into your attic and basement, or behind cabinets. They are voracious eaters and can quickly chew through cardboard, wood, and even plastic to attack your family’s food supply. Their nests can be breeding grounds for more rodents as well as disease; their urine and droppings create unpleasant odors and can spread diseases and help other pests like fleas proliferate.

Bats

The Pacific Northwest is home to several species of bat, and these critters can cause significant damage if they nest in a home. A-One Exterminators offers humane bat removal services. Bats that find their way into a home aren’t necessarily pests; they are just creatures trying to find a safe place to nest, and our team can extract them safely and humanely. Despite the fact that we don’t commonly cite them as a household pests, bats can still cause structural damage and spread disease through their droppings.

 

These are just a few of the most common pests Southern Oregon homeowners may find. When these pests appear, it is vital to take action as quickly as possible to prevent the spread of the infestation and the associated damage. An unchecked pest infestation can endanger your health and that of your family, as well as cause expensive property damage. A-One Exterminators can help prevent these issues.
