Ants are found almost everywhere on the planet, in urban and natural environments. Don’t put up with sharing counter space with these annoying pests in your South Salt Lake home. Self-treating ant infestations can only get you so far as there is always a much larger colony waiting outside and once a way into your home has been found, these tenacious little insects have a habit of coming back.

Yellow jackets, hornets and paper wasps are big fans of South Salt Lake’s open spaces and hot summer weather. Encountering a swarm of aggressive stinging insects when you’re out and about is one thing but what happens when they’re right in your own backyard? If you have wasp activity near your home, there’s probably a wasp nest nearby.

Are there disease-carrying pests in South Salt Lake?

While it’s rare for humans to catch diseases from animals, it does happen. There have been cases of Hantavirus, which is carried by mice, in Utah as well as West Nile Virus which is spread by mosquitoes. Animals can also pass on fleas and ticks to humans which can range from merely being irritating to also causing serious conditions such as Lyme disease. If you live in the South Salt Lake area and have any sort of pest or rodent problem, contact H2 Pest Control to keep yourself, your family and pets safe from potential health-related issues.

Do I still need pest control in the winter?

Just because temperatures drop in Salem in the winter months doesn’t mean all the pests die off. Spiders and ants actually go into hibernation mode, ready to get going again come spring and rodents such as rats and mice actively seek out safe havens such as human homes to build their nests. For year-round protection against pests, contact H2 Pest Control and make an appointment with a fully-licensed technician today.
