Common Pests in Puerto Rico

Mosquitoes

While they’re often regarded as a nuisance, mosquitoes can be a potentially dangerous pest because of the number of communicable diseases they carry. They’re very common in Puerto Rico, and love to make their homes near standing water such as swimming pools, lakes, reservoirs, and more. Many people don’t realize that mosquitoes can also make themselves at home indoors, and are attracted to moist, dark areas such as underneath sinks. We’re well-equipped to deal with mosquito infestations, so give us a call today to learn more.

Bees and Wasps

Bees and wasps love to come out in the spring when the flowers are blooming. Bee and wasp stings can be extremely painful, and for some they can even be life threatening. If you’ve noticed a large amount of bees, or have seen a wasp’s nest on your property, don’t risk being stung. Rely on the pest control services at Oliver Exterminating to help make it safe to enjoy your home.

Birds

Birds also are common and unwelcome pests in Puerto Rico. Species such as pigeons and doves can do damage to your property, and even can spread a number of diseases that can be dangerous to humans. At Oliver, our pest control services for birds include a number of humane methods that focus on keeping birds away from your property, decreasing the likelihood that they’ll make their homes at your home.

Ants

Ants come in many shapes and sizes, all equally frustrating and difficult to deal with. Ants are generally attracted to food, so it’s important that you keep your food tightly secured in order to prevent an infestation. We have plenty of pest control services designed specifically to deal with these tiny terrors.

3 Ways to Prevent Pests in Your Home

Mosquito control is important both indoors and outdoors. Most people think of mosquitoes as outdoor annoyances, but did you know that mosquitoes also like to build their nests indoors? It’s true! Mosquitoes can quickly go from being an outdoor annoyance to an indoor hazard when they decide to make themselves comfortable in your home. Here are a few ways you can help keep mosquitoes and other pests away.

#1. Keep Out-of-the-Way Spaces Clean

Indoors and outdoors, mosquitoes love to make their homes in damp, dark places. Indoors, these places can include underneath sinks, leaky utility closets, and underneath appliances such as washing machines. Be sure to make these places a part of your regular maintenance routine and don’t neglect to give them a quick cleaning. Mosquitoes aren’t the only pests that like to hide in areas like these, centipedes and woodlice also love these spots!

#2. Keep Doors Closed and Sealed

Many pests, including mosquitoes, get into your home because of open doors, or because of improperly sealed doors. Be sure to keep doors closed during the summer months when it can be tempting to leave them open. Inspect your doors to ensure that they are sealed when closed, with no gaps that leave room for pests to sneak through. Hardware stores sell plenty of simple solutions that homeowners can utilize to be sure their doors are sealed tight.
