Common Pests After Rain and Flooding
We’re not the only ones affected by the heavy rains and flooding. Insects and wildlife have their homes ravaged by the rain as well. Just like humans sometimes need to seek shelter during and after a storm, pests do too. When their house is washed away, they seek a new hiding place. Unfortunately, they may find your home or property is the best new area.
Some of the most common insects and wildlife that homeowners deal with include:
- Camel crickets
- House flies
- Rats & Mice
We deal with these pests often, even when weather conditions are normal. But these pests can increase exponentially when we experience flooding and devastating storms. For instance, mosquitoes thrive under these conditions. Mosquito populations typically explode after a flood. Their itchy bites can be dangerous because of their ability to carry diseases like Zika or West Nile Virus.
The humid and wet conditions can also draw in cockroaches in large groves. They are another insect that thrives in flood-damaged areas. They breed fast, which makes it challenging to control an infestation.
Rodents are often forced out of their homes during flooding and seek shelter on higher ground. They’ll look for areas that are easy to get to and dry. They may find refuge in your attic even if your basement is flooded.
