Amherst Pest Pressure

Warm Weather Pests
Warm summers in Amherst, NY, attract a number of unpleasant pests. The city’s proximity to Lake Erie combined with a dense population allow the following nuisances to thrive:

Though found throughout New York, mosquito infestations often take hold in Amherst neighborhoods with a lot of standing water. The pests only need a small puddle to lay eggs. As soon as the larvae reach adulthood, female mosquitoes immediately search for a blood meal.

Ticks also seek blood from host animals and people in upstate New York. These pests lie in wait along hiking trails and in fields with tall grasses and brush. They latch onto and bite people or animals that happen to pass by. Tick-borne illnesses in the state include Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, and tick paralysis.

Cold Weather Pests
Amherst is among the top ten cities in the United States when it comes to yearly snowfall. Many pests find the cold unfavorable and move into houses to avoid harsh conditions. New York homeowners regularly encounter:

Entering through sewers and drains, as well as being brought inside a home along with infested items, cockroaches are one of the filthiest home-invading insects. They transfer bacteria to surfaces they touch, including pantries and kitchen counters. Food poisoning is the most common cockroach disease, but the pests can also trigger asthma and allergic reactions.

Bed Bugs
Pervasive in many New York cities, bed bugs use people as their primary means of transportation. Once an infestation is underway, it’s hard to control. The pests hide during the day and come out to feed after dark. Bed bug bites produce red, itchy rashes and often cause anxiety for residents.

Able to sneak inside Amherst homes through narrow cracks and small holes, rats nest in attics, wall voids, and also burrow within crawl spaces. The pests then scavenge in pantries for food, leaving behind feces and polluting stored goods. Rat droppings, bites, and carcasses can all spread diseases to humans.
