Pest Problems Associated with Demolition

When houses are demolished to make room for new construction, the neighborhood can become littered with piles of construction debris, dumpsters, and portable toilets. Each of these things presents its own challenges, and collectively they attract pests and vermin.

It’s bad enough to think of what has nested among the mess, but what’s worse is that these new pesky neighbors don’t keep to themselves. Rodents, spiders, termites, and more may visit all the houses in the neighborhood, causing long-term problems.

Demolition in Neighborhoods Spread Pests

Construction sites bring pests to the surface in a variety of ways:

  • Food is available for rodents and cockroaches when workers take a meal break and discard their waste in open dumpsters.
  • Wood and cardboard brought in for construction may have pesky hitchhikers when these materials arrive onsite.
  • Housing is inadvertently available for pests that like to burrow in piles of wood.
  • Termites feast on the cardboard, grade stakes, and any cellulose material at ground level.
  • Rodents are particularly destructive and dangerous because they carry disease and love to chew through property.

Houses in neighborhoods with demolition taking place will fall into two categories: those that implemented pest control services and those that didn’t. Think of it this way: Pests come to the neighborhood and spread out. If some of the houses are using pest control services and some are not, where do you think the pests will go?
