WHY WE NEED PEST CONTROL
Are Pest Control services necessary? This question is far more common than you would think. So many people try to get by without pest control and they suffer more for it. Pest control is truly important for our health and safety. Did you know that 59% of nursing homes are reported to have had Bed Bugs at some point? Public data shows that about 14 million of the 124 million occupied housing units in the United States have reports of seeing roaches or having infestations. Pests are a reality that we have to face on a day-to-day basis and that won’t be changing anytime soon. There are so many different things that we can do to help prevent pests but sometimes it gets out of our control and we need help from a professional. This is where consistent Pest Control services can truly make life more peaceful by protecting your family and your investments. With Springtime ramping up, we think this discussion is timely! Let’s talk a little bit about the different ways that you can protect your home.
Some of the most common pests that we see are Ants and Roaches. When these guys come inside it can be so frustrating and stressful. Most of the time they are after high ground and food. These are a few things that you can do daily to prevent infestation. First and foremost, trash cans with lids can cut down on so much bug traffic. Make sure to keep your food in air-tight containers, as well as put up any leftover food promptly. Keep your sink clear of dirty dishes. Make sure to keep food or drink particles off the floor by regularly sweeping and mopping. If you have any leaky pipes under the sink, get those repaired and air out the area. Roaches specifically love the warm, wet, and yucky places. One extremely important way to prevent both Ants and Roaches, is to make sure to seal up any cracks in your walls, gaps in doors or windows, and take care of any other possible entry points that you notice. Pay attention to your pets, the two pests love to make their way inside any way that they can. For Roaches, make sure any thrifted furniture items are checked and cleaned well. Overall, keeping your house clean and well maintained can truly help cut down on unwanted bug traffic. Still, no matter what you do, there are times when more is needed.
