This Pest of the Week belongs to rodents as a whole. They invade homes, gnaw through walls and cause massive damage. They'll also contaminate living areas with feces and urine. It's best to control them right away before they multiply and cause worse problems.
Carpenter bees may pollinate flowers, but they also burrow into wood and leave behind unsightly holes. These pests bring down property value and can grow out of control without preventative maintenance.
