Common Pests in Grand Junction, CO
More on pests in your area
The Indian meal moth is a common pest that infests food products in Grand Junction, CO, homes. Almost any coarse grains, cereals, pet food, dried fruits, and spices can attract this pest. While some products may already be contaminated at the time of purchase, Indian meal moths may also come indoors during warmer months. Carpet beetles are another local stored food pest. While the insects do eat fabric as their name suggests, the move away from animal fiber rugs to modern, synthetic materials has forced these pests into kitchens, where they eat and contaminate pantry goods.
A termite's diet consists of wood, making them the enemy of anyone who owns a home in Grand Junction. These pests are an increasing problem in Colorado, particularly in urban areas. Detection most commonly occurs when winged adults are seen emerging from homes in spring and fall. Another sign of infestation is mud tubes that extend from the soil over foundations. Other swarming pests, such as fungus gnats, may enter homes as well. Often found near indoor plants, these insects are a nuisance in large numbers. Since females lay 200 eggs at a time, populations can multiply rapidly.
