How to Ensure Properly Maintained Home Pest Control

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
A few simple preventative measures stop most problems before they begin. Even when pests do get in, there is rarely a need to use pesticides around the house.

As always, prevention is better than cure, so the best solution is to ensure that pests do not find their way into your home in the first place. Thinking of the kind of damage that they can cause is reason enough to make you have second thoughts on opening the doors. However, there are several effective home pest control measures that you can take to deter all manner of pests from finding their way into your beautiful home.

Home pest control is the process of removing or minimizing a wide range of pests and insects from your home. It is the management or regulation of a species that falls under the category of pest, basically because the species is perceived to be detrimental to an individual's health, the economy, or the ecology. The tiniest of creatures can create the greatest of problems for any home-owner.

The most effective pest control is usually the simplest: remove their food supply and breeding sites. This includes such steps as managing garbage so that it is less attractive, cleaning up spilled food, especially pet food, and eliminating damp conditions around the house. Sometimes, however, you may have to be a detective to find the source of an infestation. Pests, such as clothes moths, carpet beetles and flour moths, can breed in a mouse or squirrel nest, an old yellowjacket nest or a bird nest, out of sight in a wall, an attic or the eaves.

Home pest control is also about maintaining low moisture levels. Most insects are often drawn to water, so you might want to maintain low moisture levels in and around the house. Wipe out spills right away, fix leaks, and avoid leaving water sitting out. Still on point, ensure you tightly cover wells, rain barrels and such like sources of stagnant water.

First and foremost you need to do proper identification of the pest that you want to get rid of. This not only makes the job of extermination easier, but makes the process more effective. There are several resources that you can use to identify any pest. Most effective is through the internet where you search for an image similar to what you have in the house and then look up information on the most effective control measures to implement.

Once you identify the pest, the next important thing to do is to learn important facts about it, such as breeding, feeding, habits, entry point etc. Simply put, for you to implement the best home pest control measures, and decide whether to do-it-yourself or call a professional pest controller for help, you have to have a good pest control plan in place.

Manage Lights: Good design and management of exterior lighting is important to prevent insect problems.

Avoid leaving porch lights on all evening to collect a cloud of moths and other insects. Every time the door is opened, the insects swirling around the light are swept into the house. Minimize the attraction time by turning porch lights on only when they are needed. Sensor lights that switch on in response to motion are ideal because they light the area for arriving guests, but switch off after a few minutes (saves energy too). When designing the lighting around the exterior of a new home, don't put light fixtures directly above the doors, especially over doors to decks or patios that might be used a lot in the evening. Place flood or spot lights a few feet away from the door and direct the light onto porches and stairs. This illuminates them safely, while keeping the mesmerized insects away from the door. Use yellow bulbs in yard light fixtures; flies and moths are not as attracted to yellow as they are to ordinary white light bulbs.
