Wasps are one of the few common pests in Hopkinton. Drawn to overhangs and eaves, they look for hidden spots to create their nests. Paper wasps are also attracted to wooden structures, as the queen wasp chews up wooden fibers to create a paste for her nests. If you notice several wasps around your house, you can guarantee that a nest is near. Unfortunately, it’s not a short-term problem, either. Wasps release a pheromone wherever they hang out to bring more wasps back the next year. Call Fox Pest Control to get your home professionally treated and avoid wasps now and in the future.
Ants also pose a problem in the Hopkinton area. Common ants include pavement ants, odorous house ants, pharaoh ants, and carpenter ants. The first three species listed are more bothersome than harmful, but carpenter ants are a different story. Measuring around ½ an inch long, carpenter ant workers use their strong jaws to carve tunnels through wood. Most often, they like to find wet or damaged wood, but they can also tunnel through healthy wood. If unnoticed, carpenter ants can damage a home for up to 10 years before detection. These ants pose a serious problem, so it’s important to call Fox right away if you suspect a carpenter ant infestation.
After a hard day’s work, some of our Fox team members enjoy a drive out to Whitehall State Park. Here you can find a beautiful 6-mile hiking loop and reservoir access. Some like to go here for a bonfire or an evening stroll. Hopkinton is surrounded by many different state parks, including Callahan, Hopkinton, and Ashland State Park. There is no lack of natural beauty in Hopkinton!
