Ants can also be a significant nuisance of a pest. Carpenter ants are terribly destructive for the structural foundation of your home – they will gnaw away at your framing, drywall, decks, etc. This can leave your home in a dangerous state. Pavement ants can infest your patio, sidewalk, driveways, etc. and displace soil loosening the foundation. These pests should not be taken lightly, and a professional approach is the best way to tackle them.

Bed bugs are infamous for their ability to infest spaces, both residential and commercial. Home pest control isn't always limited to practices inside the home, especially when it comes to bed bugs. The most effective method of prevention is not allowing bed bugs to enter your home in the first place. Bed bugs can be found virtually anywhere and can migrate from one place to the next extremely easily. If you're dealing with a bed bug infestation, reach out to pest control services such as Abell. Bed bugs are difficult to get rid of entirely, and may require tools that you might not have access to.

Cockroaches are also very resourceful pests. They can enter your home in many ways, including crawling inside through small holes and cracks in the building, hitching a ride on bags, backpacks, suitcases and other containers, finding openings around doors and windows and moving from one apartment to another through pipes and other holes in shared walls. Once in, it can be easy for them to inhabit your home without being recognized. They typically prefer tight, dark, moist spaces for shelter. This can include dark cabinets, behind refrigerators or under sinks. Some best practices for prevention include sealing cracks and holes near doors, windows or other areas facing the exterior, keeping up with plumbing maintenance especially leaks, and keeping your home clear of food debris.


Not only is the mosquito the most well-known summertime pest, but it's also perhaps the most aggravating. Disturbing perfect summer evenings outdoors, mosquitos are easily the worst pests in the summer. The most common kind of summer pest is the culex mosquito, known to breed in soft soil or stagnant water. Narrow and oval with six legs and antennae, the culex mosquito is predominately gray in color with white, silver, green or iridescent blue scales, though these are often hard to see due to its small size.

Though most mosquito bites are quite harmless, they can be responsible for transmitting serious diseases. Mosquitos have been linked to malaria, dengue fever, West Nile, and one species has been linked to the Zika virus.


Ticks constitute a real risk for you and your family. These parasitic little bugs harbor harmful disease, and because their bites are usually painless, it's possible to go several days without noticing you've been bitten. To make matters worse, these creatures are usually quite small, meaning avoiding a tick encounter requires real vigilance. Blacklegged (Deer) Ticks can transmit Lyme Disease to humans, which may cause flulike symptoms, arthritis, brain disorders or even death.

Some tips for prevention include: wear long pants and long-sleeve shirts when outdoors; inspect yourself for ticks after being outdoors; remove ticks properly to prevent infection; keep a tick-puller at your cottage. Abell is well versed in tick removal and prevention, so give us a call to learn more.

What are common pests to homeowners?

There are many pests that can be nuisance visitors and sometimes residents in different seasons. Some of the most common pests that can be found in or around your home are mice, ants, roaches, bed bugs, spiders, wasps, and centipedes. These pests can find entry into your home in many different ways, and will use your property as permanent shelter. Some, such as ants, rodents, bed bugs and wasps can do some serious damage to your property. Others, such as spiders and centipedes, can be good security guards as they typically will take care of smaller insect control for you.

Where do pests get in?

There are many more potential entry points than meets the eye. Some self-explanatory threats such as leaving garage doors open at night and large gaps around doors and windows. However, most pests are crafty and can find entry in more niche areas such as cracks in the exterior foundation, chimneys, roof vents, soffit intersections and more. Any structural weak point or opening provides an opportunity for pests to find a new place to inhabit.

How can I keep pests out?

Ensuring your home is well maintained both from a structural and sanitation standpoint is crucial in protecting your property from pest infestations. As mentioned, potential entry points are very easy to find for pests and very easy to develop in the average home. Be sure to inspect your home regularly for any gaps, cracks or openings and be sure to fix or seal them as best as possible. Also, be sure to remove any food source for pests – this includes keeping food stored away safely including pet food and cleaning any crumbs or food debris right away.

Can pests damage my home?

Unfortunately, many pests can and will cause damage to your home. Carpenter ants will use their strong jaws to chew through wood to create tunnels where they can shelter and raise their family, this can cause serious issues with the framing of your home. Squirrels must grind their teeth and gnaw on surfaces/objects to stunt their overgrowing teeth – and will use such things as wood decks, wood framing or even electrical wiring. Many pests can cause structural damage to your home and can even create dangerous living situations for your family.

Can pests be dangerous to my pets?

Aside from protecting yourself or your home from pests, you also should think about your pets. In the warmer months, pets are often exposed to pests and may have to deal with them more than you. Some pests, such as fleas, mosquitoes and ticks, carry diseases that could threaten your pet's health. In wet summers and in grassy areas, ticks tend to be a significant problem and their active season has increased beyond summer in recent years. Ticks can carry such things as Lyme’s disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, so best to avoid bringing your pets around wet environments, and regularly inspect them to spot ticks. Fleas can get onto pets for a variety of reasons, and will infest steadily onto all animals and around the home. Mosquitos can carry heart-worm, which is very dangerous for pets. These are just a few major examples of the danger pests can have on our pets – contact Abell today to learn more on how to prevent these dangers.
