Exterminators – When Should You Call?
Exterminators can sound like a process we all don’t want in our homes. If you are like a lot of us exterminators, remind us of a pest control company inside our home spraying baseboards, closets, and behind kitchen cabinets? But wait, what if there was a safer, environmentally friendly program where exterminators never spray every baseboard, closet floor, and inside cabinets. And what if this process was just as affordable and safer than many DIY (Do-It-Yourself) products.
How Do Pests In Up In Our Homes?
Pests are not born in our homes. And they don’t knock at the front door if they want in. Bugs all start their life cycles outside. And they are always in search of dry, warm places to live and nest. They seek out easy points of entry. A best practice is to inspect the exterior of your home for these entry points such as:
- Roof shingles
In addition to a comfortable home, pests are starving and searching for food. Bugs gravitate toward messes, such as food crumbs on your patio, pet food around the exterior of your home, and even garbage. Keeping your property clean outside and inside is one of the best ways to reduce the number of pest invasions. Here are some tips to follow:
- Keep crumbs off the ground and counters, both inside and out
- Keep your trash always covered
- Seal all food containers
The last thing you want to do is ignore roaches and other bugs in our home. Just because you see a cockroach or a few ants doesn’t necessarily mean you have an infestation. However, pests’ problems don’t go away. Even if you think your DIY extermination has your pest problem under control, you may find that nothing is further from the truth.
