West Des Moines Pest Pressure
Even a great place to live like West Des Moines, IA, can have insect problems. Carpenter ants are particularly prevalent in homes throughout the state, boring and excavating into wood to make nests. Unlike termites, they don't eat the wood, but can still weaken structures with their tunneling behavior. Iowa's carpenter ants are shiny, black, and large, measuring approximately half an inch in length. Another reviled indoor pest is the cockroach. They spread disease by contaminating food, utensils, and countertops with bacteria and organisms carried on their feet and bodies.
West Des Moines residents also deal with bed bug infestations, which have been on the rise nationally over the past decade and a half. Bed bugs suck blood from humans as they sleep, nesting in mattresses, bedframes, headboards, and sofas for easy access. Infestations can come swiftly, as the pests reproduce at a rapid pace and are only active at night. In fact, homeowners are often unaware they have a problem until they discover bites and skin irritations. Signs of bed bugs include finding blood, fecal stains, or the empty shells of developing young on bedding and in the hidden places they frequent during the day.
