Halloween Pests and Ghouls
Happy Halloween! There are all kinds of scary, morbid, even creepy, crawly elements to Halloween evening. But, it’s the pests that live in your walls, in your attic, along the trim of your home, in your basement or your trees or your foundation…those are the pests you’ll want to keep an eye out on this Halloween.
So, which pests are the most dangerous on this Halloween Eve?
Termites are destructive little creatures that chew walls to the extent of crumbling the whole structure of a building. They cause severe damages every year.
These dangerous insects are silent and difficult to detect. Even though these creatures can’t destroy concrete, block or brick foundations, they can, however, enter a Gilbert house through small cracks in the foundation gaps.
The structural support of a house made of wood can also be affected by termite infestation. The subterranean termites on their way to the ceiling can destroy the walls. The brutality of losses from termite attack depends on the value individual places on items there were destroyed.
Scorpion prevention in Fall looks much like scorpion prevention throughout the year. The twist is that many Gilbert and East Valley homeowners don’t realize that scorpions are still active in October, and looking to invade your home as temperatures begin to drop.
Scorpions can pack a nasty sting, and it can be particularly dangerous for anyone who is even slightly allergic. There are a few scorpions that pack particularly dangerous stings: the Arizona Bark Scorpion and the Striped Bark Scorpion. The Arizona Bark Scorpion is found in Arizona but most of the other scorpions in the state are not very dangerous unless you have an allergy. If you happen to run across scorpions when you least expect them and get stung, don’t panic and apply these first aid techniques before seeking medical help.
There are all kinds of pests, hundreds, in fact, that might invade your home on this Halloween evening. So, as you’re handing out candy, be sure to clean up the mess!! The day after Halloween is one of the greatest days of the year for ants, scorpions, spiders, birds, rats, cockroaches, and every other kind of pest who love sugar, or feed of bugs who love sugar.
You’re not the only one with a sweet tooth this time of year…
