More on pests in your area
Gulfport, the second largest city in Mississippi, is a hot spot for all sorts of pest activity. Thanks to its size and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, pests like rodents and rats thrive in the port city. In fact, rodents are often found in cities like Gulfport as they were first introduced to the U.S. after traveling from Europe by ships. Although many of these pests typically live outdoors, they do find their way inside Gulfport homes when seeking out food, water and nesting sites. These rodents can be a potentially dangerous threat to human health, as they are known to transmit a number of serious diseases in addition to introducing disease-carrying parasites like ticks and fleas. Gulfport residents and business owners should seek assistance from a local and licensed pest control expert when treating rodents.
Gulfport’s large population also contributes to the types of pests that thrive in the area, like cockroaches. Like rodents, these pests can be a serious threat to human health, as they are known to worsen allergies and trigger asthma. These creepy-crawly pests are drawn to moist, humid areas of the home, like kitchens and bathrooms, as moisture and food sources are generally present. Experts cite that residents who spot one roach likely have dozens more lurking behind the walls, inside of cupboards and out of sight. Treating cockroaches with do-it-yourself methods often fail, which is why pest experts urge Gulfport residents to contact and work with a pest expert when treating a roach infestation in order to ensure an effective and safe treatment.
