In Fort Collins and other areas in Colorado, the most common types of ants are pavement, sugar and carpenter ants. Due to their nature as foragers, ants often enter buildings through cracks, openings around vents and any other small openings they can find. Ants are not just nuisances; they will contaminate any foods they come into contact with and carpenter ants can cause serious structural damage as they carve their nests out of wood. The best way to keep ants out of your structure is to regularly clean your living or work spaces in addition to sealing the spaces they may travel through.
Though there are 30,000 classified species of spiders, the following types are the most common in Fort Collins and throughout Colorado: house spiders, rock spiders, wolf spiders and black widow spiders. House spiders in particular are a common pest and though they aren’t considered dangerous, they can leave unpleasant bites on our skin. Typically they are hairy, brown creatures with long legs and are easily identifiable. In order to prevent spiders from invading your home, the following steps can be taken as a precaution:
Stinging insects, like wasps, send over half a million people to the emergency room during any given year. In recent years, wasps have been on the rise in Fort Collins and throughout Colorado. Wasps resemble bees in that they possess the typical black and yellow stripes, but generally have longer wings and large, oval eyes. Unlike bees, they can also sting repeatedly and thus pose a greater health risk to humans. If you have found a wasp nest near your home (typically under eaves and soffits) it’s vital that you contact a professional to get rid of it, especially if a family member is known to be allergic.
