Common Pests Around Rochester

Rochester and the area around it tend to have pretty extreme weather and seasonal temperature fluctuations. During winter, Rochester, Austin, Mason City, and Quincy are stuck in the “snow belt.” During summer, they’re typically hit with high humidity and stormy weather. Severe weather and pronounced seasons create the kind of conditions a surprising number of pests love. Here are a few of the pests Rochester and the area around it can expect to run into frequently:

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches love humidity and hot weather. They’ll thrive during summer and then take shelter in homes during winter. Plunkett’s treatment program eliminates 75% of roaches within one week and wipes out all roaches within six.

  • Termites: Termites target moist wood in humid environments. In summer, they begin burrowing into structures, and survive winter by tunneling deeper. Plunkett’s uses the Sentricon system to reliably eliminate entire termite colonies.

  • Ants: Ants build their colonies in moist environments where they can access food and water. Carpenter ants survive winter by tunneling into wooden structures. Regardless of the ant species, Plunkett’s can safely and effectively remove colonies near you.

Local. Effective. Serving with Integrity.

For over 100 years, Plunkett’s has delivered honest, expert, full-service pest management services to homes and businesses.
