Does your basement get wet? Well, wet wood invites Carpenter Ants, Termites and Wood Boring Beetles. It is important to dry out these areas and get a dehumidifier going as soon as possible. The nuisance moisture pests will probably be more prevalent this fall and next spring. Millipedes, ground beetles, fungus gnats, snails, springtails, earwigs and centipedes all fit this category. They are happy to stay under leaf litter and mulch until it dries out and they search for other areas such as your garage or basement. Reduce moist areas and keep your basement dry to prevent further damage. Want to stop these pests in their tracks, have a preventative spray this fall and spring, call us. Serving all of central MA and surrounding towns.
