As one of the largest cities in the state of Missouri, Springfield is a thriving community filled with sights to see and things to do. Due to its temperate weather and other contributing conditions, the city of Springfield is a hot spot of pest activity for cockroaches, ants, domestic rodents and termites. When the weather begins to cool outside, pests like rats and mice sometimes find their way indoors seeking out shelter. These pests can be carriers and transmitters of disease and can pose a risk to human health. To help keep a rodent-free home, pest management professionals recommend keeping food sources away from pests. This includes small crumbs and open, stored dry goods. Outside garbage bins should be sealed tightly and kept clean to help keep rodents out as well. If Springfield residents suspect a rodent infestation, they are urged to contact a licensed pest control expert, as it’s not advisable to handle wild rodents.
Another pest that typically requires assistance from a professional is the termite. Like rodents, these small pests can cause significant damage to structures. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that termites cause billions of dollars in structural damage each year. The University of Missouri reports that there are 2,500 species of termites globally; however, the most prevalent in Missouri is the subterranean termite. These small pests can invade homes from the soil both outside and underneath the structure. Termites also can gain access indoors by entering through crack and crevice openings in the structural foundation and then constructing mud tunnels from the soil to wood; thus, it is important to minimize and repair possible entry points against foraging termites. To help keep homes free of termites, experts suggest scheduling a yearly walk-though inspection with locally licensed termite experts. They have the tools and know-how to help spot and treat a potential or actual termite problem.
