Ruva + Enfield
Our main office is located directly south of Enfield in Manchester, Connecticut.
Over the summer time it is likely to find a Ruva employee cooling off with some Smyth’s Ice Cream. Their Oreo ice cream in a waffle cone is great, as is their cotton candy ice cream for those who are feeling more adventurous. As a fellow local small business, we recommend trying their ice cream when you are in the area. It doesn’t disappoint.
You may also find Ruva employees enjoying their time off by playing pickleball at Veterans Memorial Athletic Complex. Veterans Memorial Athletic Complex has 6 courts that are well maintained and open to the public. If you thought our technicians were good at getting rid of pests, just wait until you see them get rid of fly balls over the kitchen.
What kind of pests are common in Enfield?
The 3 pests we get calls about most often in Enfield are:
- Box Elder Bugs.
Enfield is susceptible to tick-related concerns due to its wooded areas, grassy fields, and outdoor recreational spaces. The black-legged tick, also known as the deer tick, is of particular concern in the region as it is a known vector for Lyme disease. Residents engaging in outdoor activities may encounter ticks in tall grass, wooded areas, and even suburban yards. Vigilance in preventive measures, such as wearing long clothing and using tick repellent, is crucial to minimize the risk of tick bites. Regular tick checks after spending time outdoors and prompt removal of attached ticks are essential practices. Given the potential health risks associated with tick-borne diseases, Enfield residents are encouraged to stay informed about local tick activity and adopt proactive measures to protect themselves and their families from these tiny but potentially harmful arachnids.
In Enfield, mice are a common concern for residents and businesses, especially during the colder months. Seeking warmth and shelter, these small rodents often find their way into homes, offices, and other structures through tiny openings. Once inside, mice can cause damage by gnawing on electrical wires, insulation, and personal belongings. Their rapid reproductive rates make infestations challenging to control, and the presence of mice can pose health risks due to their droppings and potential transmission of diseases. Residents in Enfield are advised to be vigilant in implementing preventive measures, including sealing entry points, maintaining cleanliness, and storing food securely, to minimize the impact of these unwelcome guests and ensure a pest-free living and working environment.
Box Elder Bugs
Enfield is not exempt from the presence of box elder bugs, particularly during the fall months. These distinctive insects, marked by their black and red coloration, are attracted to the seeds of box elder trees, which are abundant in the region. As temperatures drop, box elder bugs seek shelter in homes, sheds, and other structures, becoming unwelcome houseguests for residents. While box elder bugs are not known to cause structural damage or harm humans, their sheer numbers and tendency to congregate in large clusters can be a nuisance. Residents in Enfield may encounter these pests on sunny sides of buildings, windows, and doors. To manage box elder bug infestations, individuals can employ preventive measures such as sealing entry points and seeking professional pest control assistance when needed, ensuring a more comfortable living environment during the fall season.
What are some environmental factors in Enfield that influence pest activity?
Enfield experiences a temperate climate with cold winters and warm summers. Seasonal changes impact the activity of various pests, with rodents seeking shelter during colder months and insects becoming more active in warmer weather.
The age and condition of buildings play a role in pest activity. Cracks, gaps, and poorly maintained structures provide entry points for pests like rodents, spiders, and insects.
Nearby agricultural activities can impact pest populations. Certain pests may be attracted to crops, and their presence can affect neighboring urban or suburban areas.
By considering these environmental factors, residents and businesses in Enfield can implement targeted pest control measures. Regular inspections, proper sanitation, and pest-proofing efforts can help manage and prevent pest infestations in this Connecticut town.
