One of the great things about living in Colorado is we don’t have many of the major pest issues you find in other parts of the country. Termite infestation in Denver is not going to be as common as, say, some place more humid like St. Louis or Chicago. Rodents such as mice and rats in Colorado will not be as much of a problem as they are in higher population areas like New York or Los Angeles. But because we have had wet springs the last few years these pests and others are growing in number. With pest activity in Colorado on the rise we are also seeing a lot of questions about another problem pest: bed bugs.
Spring is synonymous with birth and new life. Unfortunately that holds true to insects as well, including many destructive pests such as termites. Termite problems in the Denver area are on the increase mainly due to the successive wet springs over the last few years. Conditions have been favorable for these wood-destroying insects to multiply at a faster rate.
