Your Guide to Fall Pest Control

Your Guide to Fall Pest Control

It happens every year in Fayetteville, NC. The cold air comes in, the first frost forms, and you begin to think you’ve seen the last of pests in and around your home. Then, just like that, you see a warm day (or the pests see your warm home!), and you’re right back to living life alongside the pests.

What Can You Do?

At Eco Advantage, we’ve seen this happen to more than a few good folks, and we want to help you put an end to surprise pest infestations in your Fayetteville, NC home.

One of the simplest ways to stop pests in their tracks is to set up glue traps in infrequently used areas of your home like basements, crawl spaces, and garages. These traps are chemical free and can help keep insects like roaches, stink bugs, and other crawling pests out of your living space.

Speaking of stink bugs – these guys are looking for warmth and shelter when it gets cold outside. This means you’re likely to see these pests in your home when temperatures drop. Be sure to monitor the outside of you home frequently for signs of stink bugs and treat them if you do. This way, the pests will never make it into your home!

Another common pest complaint we see at Eco Advantage this time of year is cockroaches. Controlling cockroaches can be as simple as keeping your home extra clean. Make sure you take out the trash when it’s full, clean the counter and pantry of any crumbs, and clean up grease and other spills promptly. This makes your home less likely to reward any potential invaders.

Pest control can be aided by a little pre-season planning, but if you’re having trouble with pests around your home, the professionals at Eco Advantage are here to help. Contact us today at 910-425-6415 for a free estimate.
