Common Pests in Wauwatosa, WI
More on pests in your area
While the city of Wauwatosa, WI, is named after the fireflies that swarm around the Menomonee River, residents are much more likely to encounter mosquitoes during the evening. In fact, the great body of water allows these pests to breed rapidly and thrive in the area. In addition to being a summer-time nuisance, mosquitoes carry and transmit diseases such as West Nile virus. Outdoor activities are also often marred by ticks, who wait in tall grass or vegetation until a host brushes by. Once attached, the bloodsuckers begin to feed. Not only are they unsettling to find, but ticks can to spread illnesses like Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis.
With ample food, water, and shelter, Wauwatosa makes a wonderful home for rodents. Rats in particular are abundant, burrowing in the area and feeding on garbage. Their digging can lead to damage and possible destruction of foundations and patios. Rats also have a need to gnaw, and this excessive chewing damages doors, walls, and wires. In addition to the filth that comes with their presence, rodents are responsible for spreading the Hantavirus, which can be fatal to people.
