Now that summer is fully upon us in the New England states, pests are taking advantage of the warm weather and really getting out and about. When pests invade your home or yard and become a nuisance, fast action is needed to get the situation under control before you have a real problem on your hands. The following are a few tips that can help you get the most out of your pest control and stay pest free through the summer and beyond.
Call Before There’s a Problem
Residential pest control services can help you control pest problems better than DIY methods. However, eliminating infestations after they have begun is difficult and can take time, even for the professionals. Calling pest control services before there is a problem can help to keep your home, belongings, family, and pets safe from pests. Bain Pest Control Service offers a variety of different home protection plans that can help you take a more proactive approach to keeping your home pest free.
Notify Exterminators of Suspected Issues
Issues such as odd smells in the home, strange noises in the walls or attic, or wood damage may all be indications of pest issues. If you already have a pest prevention plan in place, notify your exterminator of these issues to directly target the problem before it worsens. This service may be free of charge if it is included in your plan. If you do not have a plan in place, the best course of action is to contact residential pest control services to discuss the best way to handle the pest problem.
Do Your Part in Staying Pest Free
Keeping the home clean and free of food particles and moisture can deter pests from entering the home. Keeping outdoor areas neat and removing piles of leaves, standing water, and yard waste removes hiding spots and sustenance that attracts pests and nuisance wildlife. This can help to keep both the yard and the home pest free. Dusting and sweeping in nooks and crannies of the home can also help to eliminate pest eggs and pests themselves from the home.
Treat Pets and Limit Entryways
One of the main ways that pests get inside of homes is by hitching a ride in on pets. Treating pets regularly with topical or oral medications can help to eliminate fleas, ticks, and many other common pests. Sealing cracks and holes in walls and keeping windows and doors shut can also help to keep pests outside. Residential pest control service professionals can help you to pinpoint problem areas through which pests may be gaining access to the home.
