Three Summer Pests Around the Greater Austin Area

Austin Area Pests | June 1, 2019

Bee Close Up

Every summer in the Austin area is a host of pests that visit the greater Austin Area. Many of these pests may be unassuming, but when they move into your home, they become loud and destructive. Here is a closer look at our top three summer pests for Austin properties.

  1. Bats – Bats are beneficial mammals that do a wonderful job of controlling flying pests. Bats need a place to roost and when they make their home in your attic or wall space they  become noisy and messy. Unlike squirrels, which are rodents, bats do not chew up your home. Instead, they leave piles of guano and urine and can make a huge mess in just a little time. The damage caused by bats can be extensive if their presence goes unchecked for too long.
  2. Carpenter Ants – Though not as common as termites, carpenter ants do similar damage. They excavate wood to create a place to live. If that is under your house, they they are weakening the beams that support your home. Unlike termites carpenter ants do not eat wood, they merely excavate the wood to make a home. Larger colonies can really make your home unstable and the damage can be expensive to repair.
  3. Carpenter Bees – These are larger, solitary bees that chew wood. They make small galleries in raw wood. They tend to damage fence posts, siding, deck wood, and eaves. A simple way to prevent carpenter bees is to make sure that all exposed wood is treated or painted. They tend to not bother painted wood.
