Lake Mohawk is a community built around the lake, its namesake, Lake Mohawk. It’s a place where things are held to a high standard, especially in the Lake Mohawk Country Club, and pests are something people take very seriously in the area.
Pests in Lake Mohawk
There are many pests that cause a great deal of inconvenience in an area meant for relaxation, such as fleas and bed bugs. There are also several pests that are a problem for elderly members of the community, which Lake Mohawk statistically has a high number of. 45.8% of the population is older than 45, as of the 2010 census. With about half of the population at, or approaching, retirement age, it makes sense to factor this into our attitude towards pests in the area.
Living near a lake means there’s an increased risk of mosquitoes, and pests like mosquitoes, ticks, and bees are especially dangerous to the elderly. Though rare, diseases like West Nile Virus spread through infected mosquitoes, and are more dangerous to older people. Coupled with the risks from diseases like Lyme disease from ticks, and the allergic reactions to bees, there is a safety concern associated with improperly treated pests around your home. If your household has children or elderly family members, it’s important to treat for pests that can be a danger to them.
In addition to the danger to family members, some pests are a danger to your home. With an average home value of $343,500, and a unique alpine architectural style, each home holds a great deal of value. In the case of pests such as termites and carpenter bees, much of this value can be lost to structural damage and unsightly holes in the exteriors.
