Manasota Key Pest Control
Manasota Key hosts numerous pests, including bats, termites, and bed bugs. At Fahey Pest Control, we know the impact that these pests can have on your home or business. Bats can be helpful because these flying mammals consume insects, pollinate some plants, and disperse seeds. However, these mammals are not desirable inside buildings. Bats will use homes and other buildings as a nesting location, and one small hole is all it takes for bats to gain access. Bats can potentially carry rabies, but the biggest threat comes in the form of fecal matter. Bat feces can harbor a fungus that can cause lung disease in humans, so it is recommended that bat infestations be handled by professionals. Termites are insects that feed on dead plant material. These insects harm buildings by consuming wood fiber, which can result in damage to the structure and furniture. Some colonies will form within the infested wood. Signs of a termite infestation include swarms of winged termites, discarded wings, hollow wood, and mud tubes on exposed surfaces. Bed bugs are parasites that feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. These pests are commonly found in sleeping areas, but infestations can occur in other areas of the home. Infestations are sometimes discovered by carefully inspecting bed frames, mattresses, and box springs. The most common sign of a bed bug infestation is the presence of bed bug bites, which can result in irritation, a rash, and symptoms of an allergic reaction. Bats, termites, and bed bugs can be a dangerous nuisance to homes and businesses in the Manasota Key area. If you are experiencing an infestation of any of these pests, contact us for a free quote.
