Keeping Pests in Their Place, Not Yours!
Wausau and Rhinelander are two cities bisected by the Wisconsin River. In both cities, it’s impossible to travel far without running into the water. The Big Rib meets the Wisconsin River right in the heart of Wausau, and Wisconsin River makes Boom Lake in Rhinelander. Being on the waterfront makes these towns beautiful and pleasant to live in, but all that water has its consequences, too. Chief among those consequences: pests.
Wausau, Rhinelander, and the rest of the areas struggle with the kind of pest problems all waterfront cities struggle with, especially during our hot and humid summers. Fortunately, Wausau and Rhinelander don’t have to suffer pests without recourse. Instead, you can call on Plunkett’s Pest Control. Our local experts have the knowledge and experience we need to wipe out your pest infestation fast and effectively, no matter how severe.
Pest Problems in Wausau and Rhinelander
Pests tend to gravitate toward cities on water because they’re a great place for the pests to get everything they need. Waterborne pests require moisture and humidity to stay active and reproduce, and they can acquire food and shelter from the cities nearby. Wausau and Rhinelander are great destinations for waterborne pests to rest and start families. Here are a few of the pests you might see particularly frequently, and what we can do about them:
Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes reproduce in standing water an require constant sources of moisture to stay active. Plunkett’s offers one time or ongoing, seasonal treatments for driving mosquitoes off of your property and keeping them away for good.
Termites: Contrary to popular belief, termites require a constant source of moisture to keep eating and spreading. They often start colonies near lakes and rivers. Plunkett’s uses the Sentricon system to eliminate entire colonies quickly and permanently.
Wasps and Hornets: Wasps build their nests in secluded, sheltered areas where they can consistently find other insects to prey on. You should never attempt to remove a wasp nest on your own; leave that to the pros at Plunkett’s.
Ants: Ants build their colonies near water so they can hydrate as they expand their territory. This is particularly important for the particularly destructive carpenter ants. Whatever the ant species, Plunkett’s can make sure they don’t bother you.
