Everything you need to know about pests
Fall is officially here when the weather gets cooler, football season starts, and everything tastes like pumpkin spice.
Everything about fall is nice, except for one thing: bugs. Here’s everything you need to know about Fall Pest Control.
When it gets cold, why do bugs come inside?
When it gets cold, bugs come inside to find food, water, and a place to stay. Many people think that summer is the most bug-filled time of year. But did you know that when summer ends and temperatures drop in the fall, annoying animals love to move into your house? Like people, bugs want to be warm, eat, and drink, and they will do almost anything to get what they need.
When bugs come out in the fall
When fall comes, bugs and rodents come into our homes looking for food and warmth. These pests are not only annoying, but they also cause damage to our homes and pets and pose serious health risks to our loved ones.
Taking the steps to protect and fortify your home against bugs will help keep it clean and give you peace of mind, just in time for cozy nights in front of the fireplace. Read on to find out how to keep them from finding what they need in your home or business this fall.
How to keep pests out of your house this fall
STEP 1: Make sure your house has a tight seal.
Pests can fit into places that are very small. In fact, cockroaches can get through the quarter-sized hole. Your windows and doors need to be well sealed so that bugs can't get in through even the tiniest cracks.
How to make it right: Fill in cracks and gaps between window panes with caulk. Put weather stripping around doors to keep them from letting in air or water. You should also look at other interesting things around the outside of your house. All of the following should be caulked and sealed: dryer vents, plumbing holes, basement screens, and attic vents.
STEP 2: Keep your house clean.
Bugs like to lay eggs in places that are dirty, wet, and warm.
Vacuum. Vacuuming under beds, sofas, and other places that are hard to see will help keep pests out of places you don't see often.
Clean your sink and kitchen. Insects and other pests like to hang out in your kitchen. Don't put dirty plates in the sink. Keep countertops clear of stuff and wipe them down with a cleaner that kills germs. You should also keep the cabinet space under your sinks.
Check for leaks. Small leaks and seal breaks on the walls that face the outside can be missed, giving insects a nice new home that you don't even know about.
STEP 3: Set up a schedule for regular pest control
This fall, the best way to protect your home from bugs and rodents is to hire a professional pest control service once a month or once every three months. The best person to handle the right insecticides and treatment methods is a professional. Crawl spaces, attics, basements, and other hard-to-reach places are dangerous places to work, especially if you have kids or pets. Pest control experts are well-trained and know how to get rid of pests without hurting your family's health or safety.
