Just Because You See Just One.. Pest Control Tips

Written by on

Pest infestations have a tendency to get out of control quickly. Most people never think their home or property is going to get overrun with pests. And that’s exactly what they want you to think.

It all starts with just one pest. You might see a lonely insect or spider in your home and think nothing of it. But behind the scenes there could be some major move in plans taking place that you’re not aware of. By the time you’re aware – it’s usually too late. Bed bugs, spiders, termites, wasps, bees, mice and other pests are very resourceful. They are constantly on the search for a suitable place to feed and live. Any home can be vulnerable to pests – even new homes.

Controlling pests in your home and on your property can be a big challenge, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Your location has a great influence on the pest problems you’ll face, and the control solutions that can be used to address them.

In the city core, cockroaches and rodents are your most likely home invaders. In wooded areas, squirrels, mice, rats and ants are problems for homeowners. Bed bug infestations are prevalent in heavily populated areas, but can be transported anywhere, and wasps are pervasive in the warmer months.

When you see just one pest in your home you should start looking around for other signs there may be more. That’s the thing with pests – they are very communal and never travel alone. Where’s there is one – there’s more!

The best way to control an all-out infestation is to eliminate from your home the conditions that attract pests. For example, clean out nooks and crannies in your garage, clean up debris around the home, keep bushes and trees trimmed, and make necessary repairs to your home that may be allowing pests to get inside.

You don’t want an infestation to get out of control because it could turn into a very inconvenient, costly and even dangerous situation. As the saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.”
