Pests You Won’t Love for Valentine’s Day

Squirrel and raccoon

Have you been bitten by the love bug? That’s pretty common around Valentine’s Day, and not to be confused with the lovebug, a black-bodied insect, with a reddish-orange thorax that’s known to copulate in midair. Those lovebugs are not native to New York. They come from Central America and the American Gulf Coast and don’t actually bite. But if you’re falling in love this Valentine’s Day, you want things to be perfect. You don’t want your dream date ruined because your home has a pest problem. If that’s happening to you, don’t become a lonely heart, call the pest control experts at Arrow Exterminating.

Arrow Will Get Rid of Pests All Year Round

Arrow Exterminating is the area’s leading pest control company and we’ve been keeping homes pest free since 1947. We serve both Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island and all five boroughs of New York City. If you have a pest, we’ve probably dealt with it. During winter months we often help homeowners get rid of mice, rodents, and other creatures. Once the weather begins to turn warmer, we’ll see insect season begin and we’ll help homes and businesses get rid of these crawling and flying pests.

We pride ourselves on taking care of our clients and being thorough in coming to a resolution of your pest problem. We’re a family run business that’s grown to be one of the largest pest control companies in the New York Metropolitan area and we can get rid your home of those pests you won’t love for Valentine’s Day.

The Pests of Winter

In mid-February, most of the calls we receive at Arrow are related to animals such as mice, rats, rodents, raccoons, and squirrels. They can be dangerous to your home. Rats can carry parasites and diseases, while mice can spread disease through their droppings. Squirrels can chew through wires if they get into your home. Raccoons won’t chew through wires, but they’ll do damage if they get into your attic. Removing these animals should be done by professionals because there are laws that apply to the removal of wildlife that could apply in these cases. Ask the experts at Arrow Exterminating what you should do.

Warm Weather Pests

You won’t see a lot of insects during winter weather, but we’re a month away from the start of spring and you need to keep an eye out on insects that can damage your home. Two types of insects that are constant problems to homeowners are termites and carpenter ants. Termites eat wood, while carpenter ants don’t, they can still do major damage to your home because they tunnel their way through wood. They can also nest inside your home. Termites can create dirt colored tubes in your home or leave dropped wings. If you start to see signs of these insects, you need to get rid of them fast before more damage is done.
