No matter what’s going on in the world, insects and pests never take a break from doing what they do: getting into people’s homes, spreading disease and causing damage. Right now in the Brockton area, ants, termites, and spiders are causing lots of problems. Here’s what you need to know to get rid of them – with tips from your Brockton exterminator:
Want Less Bugs In Your House? Eliminate Their Entrance
As Brockton exterminators, one of the things we look for when we know there are problematic insects in the home is the point of entry that allows those bugs in. Common entry points include cracks in the foundation, gaps in windowsills or doorways, and any point where weather or other events have caused damage to your home. Preventing access to your home is an essential element of effective, lasting pest control. It’s part of what we do as exterminators, but it’s also a task you can take on yourself: any time you see a vulnerable point where insects can get in, taking action to fill that gap can help you keep the bugs out.
The Better The Buffet, The Bigger The Crowd: Cleanliness & Pest Control
Sometimes housekeeping situations get out of hand. Insects are drawn to food sources, including trash, beer and soda bottles, and the like. In addition to insects, food sources can draw other pests, including mice, rats, and even raccoons. One simple way to make your home less appealing to insects and pests is to get all of the food sources out.
An Ounce of Prevention is Worth an Ounce of Cure
Effective pest control takes into account that hundreds of thousands of insects and pests are born every single year, and provides a continuing, ongoing campaign to keep them out of your house and away from your family. Year round pest protection is the proven best practice to keep insects from gaining a foothold in your home. For more details, call us – we’ll be happy to answer all of your questions.
