Household pests love this time of the year. Colder weather beckons them into your home, and food keeps them there. Any exterminator will tell you that they see an influx of insects like bed bugs and cockroaches, and rodents entering into homes in the colder months more than just about any other time of the year.
The pest control team at ECO Advantage wants to help you tackle any pest intruders before they take over your home, and ideally, exterminate them before they ever get a chance to invade. While we have the equipment and pest control treatments to exterminate any issue you may have with rats, mice, cockroaches, bed bugs, ants or other pests, there are simple steps that you can take as well to prevent a pest problem from ruining your holidays.
Americans cook millions of pounds of food around Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you want to stop cockroaches and mice from finding their home in your kitchen, do not leave food out in the open on countertops and in cabinets. Make sure all food is properly wrapped and stored away. Clean up dirty dishes and appliances quickly. Do not allow spills to sit and soak into floors or tables and chairs.
Take the time to walk around your home, checking baseboards, windowsills and the bottoms of your doors for cracks or openings where pests can find their way inside. Your warm home is very inviting to them. Whatever way they can figure out to get inside, they will do it. Fix any cracks or openings you find. This will also help you to keep warm air inside your house and possibly lower your heating costs.
Sometimes you simply cannot help when pests come into your house and will need to hire an exterminator. Bed bugs are an unfortunate reality for many families. If you have family and friends visiting this holiday season, stay vigilant when it comes to the possibility of bedbugs. Be sure to wash bedding regularly and heat dry to reduce the chances of a bedbug infestation.
