Arkansas is home to a diverse range of bugs and wildlife, which is one of the many reasons people refer to it as the Natural State. Those who live in the city of Tontitown are likely to come across various creepy crawlers in and around their house. Since Tontitown is in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, there are many pests common to the area. In addition, bugs thrive in Arkansas due to the state’s humid subtropical climate. Infestations are a common problem that residents must handle.
Cockroaches multiply quickly, which means that residents need to eliminate them before the problem gets worse. Roaches spread germs and bacteria everywhere they go. They can even leave parasitic worms behind. Cockroaches often enter homes in Tontitown by hitching rides on shopping bags or delivery boxes. In addition, they also enter homes through small holes and cracks. These vermin love to seek out kitchens and bathrooms as a breeding ground.
Since cockroaches can cause negative health effects, people must find an effective way to stop the infestation. Cockroaches are nocturnal, which means that they usually only come out at night. During the daytime, they tend to hide behind walls, inside appliances and underneath counters. When it comes to treating a cockroach infestation, residents may need to hire a professional. The professionals know where the pests typically hide and have effective ways to eliminate them.
Most flea infestations occur when a cat or dog brings them into the house. Pets can get fleas from being outside or by spending time around other animals that have them. These annoying bugs bite cats, dogs, and humans. The first step in getting rid of them is to treat the source of the problem. People cannot eliminate fleas from their home if their pet keeps bringing them inside.
Fighting a flea battle is tough. These pests are tiny, hard to see and difficult to kill. It often takes more than one try to eliminate them. A single female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day. Homeowners should consider hiring a professional pest remover to treat the flea infestation. A professional can even provide yard flea control.
Ants are one of the most annoying pests to get rid of in Arkansas. Carpenter ants often damage property before people even know that the ants are inside their house. Besides carpenter ants, pharaoh and fire ants are also a common problem in Tontitown. Those who do not treat the infestation right away may end up needing to spend lots of money on structural repairs.
Some unlucky homeowners must also deal with odorous house ants. These ants release an odd coconut smell when they die. Ants typically take up residence in the kitchen because they like areas that have food and water. There are many ant killers on the market so that people can treat the problem on their own. Unfortunately, ants often split into multiple colonies to avoid the spray. Homeowners may need to hire a professional to ensure that the ants are completely gone.
