Davenport IA Exterminator, Pest Control & Termite Inspector

Davenport Pest Pressure

Situated on the banks of the Mississippi River, Davenport, IA, is prone to frequent flooding. This often sends rodents fleeing for the higher ground of residential yards and attics. Situations where mice and rats are living in close proximity to humans rarely end well, as these pests are prone to leaving disease-ridden waste around and inside food and food storage areas. They can carry serious illnesses, including Hantavirus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and tularemia.

Abundant water sources throughout Davenport also create places for mosquitoes to breed. The pests are known to spread a number of serious diseases, including West Nile Virus, which has been documented in the state. Pest experts strongly advise removing all standing water around properties, such as stagnant bird baths and dog bowls to keep mosquitoes from reproducing.

Local flooding problems promote termite infestations, too. These pests are especially attracted to moist wood, which is plentiful after foundations have been given a good soaking for days or weeks at a time. Although termites' appetite for wood is well known, few realize how important water is to these insects' survival. The floodplains of Davenport provide an ideal buffet. Unfortunately, having the pests around can lead to serious structural damage in homes.
