As one of the larger boroughs of Lancaster County, New Holland has a few unique pest problems of its own. With lots of houses gathered closely together and completely surrounded by fields, New Holland residents should be looking out for various pest problems, including ants, mice, and rats.
The most common types of home-invading ants in Pennsylvania are turfgrass ants, pavement ants, odorous house ants (or sugar ants), little black ants, and carpenter ants. Of all these types of ants, carpenter ants are the most destructive to homes. They use their massive jaws to carve tunnels through healthy or damaged wood in wood piles, wooden dog houses or bird feeders, homes, and other wooden structures. In some cases, carpenter ants can tunnel through a home or other building for 8-10 years without discovery, causing huge amounts of home damage not covered by insurance.
Mice and rats are some of the most universal pest problems in Pennsylvania, including New Holland. During the summer, mice and rats generally spend most of their time in the fields that surround the borough, giving them access to field crops, shelter under the crops’ leaves, and water from irrigation systems. However, mice and rats are likely to find their way into homes to look for food, especially during the winter months. Once inside, these rodents contaminate food, chew through walls and electrical wires, build nests,and can spread diseases to people and animals. These include tularemia, various hemorrhagic fevers, rat-bite fever, salmonella, Lassa fever, hantavirus, and even the plague.
