Scarborough Rodent Control
What’s that scratching sound in the walls? Did you hear the scurrying noise in the ceiling? Where did those little black pellets come from? Who did all this damage to the building materials and stored items? You probably have a rodent infestation.
It is a battle year-round, most notably in the winter months. Maine property owners have to be vigilant for mice and rats. These little critters can cause massive property damage, from chewing through wiring to contaminating materials with urine and fecal matter.
Let Maine-based Green Pest Defense be your line of defense. Our team can take command of your rodent dilemma and end the threat they pose to health and property.
Providing remarkable rodent control services in Scarborough, Cumberland County, and throughout the state of Maine, we will zero in on the cause of your rodent issue and effectively stop their reign of terror.
When you contact Green Pest Defense for help to get rid of vermin, we will inspect the interior and exterior of your home or business to find the scope of the problem, entry points, and what is attracting rodents to your property.
Based on our assessment, we will assemble a personalized plan of attack that often includes:
- Extermination of active rodents inside the dwelling.
- Sealing of obvious access points.
- Installing bait boxes on the exterior of the structure and in the garage, attic, and basement to avert future activity.
- Tips and recommendations to make your property less attractive to mice, rats, and other vermin.
We also offer follow-up services if the rodent problem is extreme.
While we do offer one-time rodent control services, Green Pest Defense highly recommends signing up for a continuous home pest control plan targeting other common house-infesting insects such as roaches, spiders, wasps, and ants. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Scarborough Wasp Control
Wasps can be frightening! The three of the most commonly found wasps in Maine include the yellow jackets, paper wasps, and hornets. These pesky, swarming insects can ruin a good time in seconds, especially as the weather turns warmer.
Sugary drinks and foods attract these sting menaces, especially in the summer and early fall months. Just as BBQ season is fully underway, the wasps are also busily increasing their numbers. To prevent these unwanted guests from crashing your party, keep drinks and food covered. Note that sweet-smelling perfumes, lotions, and sunscreens can also attract wasps.
Wasps, like other living creatures, search out places that can serve as sources of food, sheltered sites to build nests, or places to overwinter, or hibernate. Although some may accidentally enter a home or building by accident, others are actively seeking ideal places to colonize. Their preferred locations include:
- Voids or empty spaces in walls,
- Roof rafters,
- Attic spaces,
Since wasps cannot be completely stopped from infiltrating your property, the focus should be on prevention efforts to make your home a fortress that they cannot invade. Repairing holes, sealing gaps, covering wall openings, at conjunction points, and along the roofline is the best line of defense.
If you suspect wasps have nested somewhere inside your home, it is best to have an inspection conducted by professionals to make sure the openings are not sealed before all the wasps have been exterminated.
If the nest and wasps are not properly treated, any wasps left alive inside the previously exposed area will seek a way of escape. This can leave the insects chewing away at the ceiling or walls until the enraged and disoriented wasps are freed, usually inside your home.
Because of their territorial nature, wasps will defend their nests aggressively. One wasp can sting multiple times, unlike bees. Their stings are painful and potentially deadly to humans and animals. It is best to take care of wasp control problems promptly, as they can multiply rapidly. At Green Pest Defense, our tools, safety equipment, and knowledge to control wasps will take care of your problem effectively.
