Common Pests on Oil Fields

There are a variety of pests that may appear around an oil field. These critters are known for their ability to infest large areas of terrain, and the small insects often attract larger animals into the area. Weeds and vacant lots often become home to a variety of subterranean insects and other pests that thrive in these conditions. If the infestation gets out of control, these pests can damage the equipment by interfering with the proper functioning of the machines. Pest control also involves locating the breeding areas for critters and removing them from the areas where machines are located. Protect the workers and the equipment from potential damage by wild critters, insects, rodents and other common oil field pests.

Places where weeds grow freely can attract a variety of pests including the following:

Many of these critters live in the area where the oil fields are located, so they may display territorial behavior. Removing wildlife is a unique skill, and it requires special training, tools and equipment. These pests can present a danger to the health and safety of the workers. It is important to understand that there are many species of each pest, and they may have different breeding and mating habits. If the small insects and rodents are not removed from the area, they could build their nesting grounds close to where the workers are operating equipment. This can pose a liability problem for the company in the oil field. Professional pest control experts are trained to identify each pest correctly and take the appropriate measures for removal.
