Simple Pest Control Tips For Protecting Your Home

Many homeowners can easily take proper steps to discouraging pests from entering their living area. If that doesn't work, pesticides will be necessary to solve any issue with chemical poisons. Here's tips on how to keep them out of your home and how to find the perfect pest control company for times when you have to call a professional.

Make Pest Unwelcome In Your Home

Keep your home as clutter-free as possible, both inside and out. Work hard to stop leaves, grass clippings, and other yard waste from accumulating in your yard, especially near doors and windows. It's also smart to minimize trash build-up, like newspapers and sheets of coupons. Piles of leaves, paper, and trash make cozy little hiding places for pests to settle!

Always be sure to seal and block cracks in doors and windows. This is the most common place for critters to enter your home. Without an easy entrance, most bugs will search for another living space.

If you have pets, keep them groomed and clean. Utilize flea collars and tick repellent. Any bugs that get onto your pet will likely make their way indoors to join your family. Remember to keep your pet's vaccinations up-to-date, also.

As you may have inspected before, kitchens and bathrooms are especially vulnerable to pesky mold and mildew growth. It's important to wash dirty dishes, as soon as possible, clean up food spills, and keep your pet's food outside instead of inside the kitchen. If the bugs can't find anything to eat, they'll either die or leave your home in search of their next meal. Carpet can also harbor little insects if it's not vacuumed on a regular basis.

Finding the Right Pest Control Professional

Even with all these measures, you may need to call in a professional for help. Don't just call the first person you see in the phone book! Do your research until you are satisfied that the company will consider the safety of your family, as well as the effectiveness of their product.

Ask friends, neighbors, and local relatives for recommendations. Who have they used in the past? Were they satisfied with the results? How long did pests stay away after treatment?

Make sure the pest control professional is licensed by the state. This proves they've been adequately trained, and they know how to use pesticide chemicals safely and effectively. The state recognizes that they can stop the pest problem without endangering the lives of those in the household.

Read the contract. Don't just sign on the dotted line. Make sure you understand all the terms of your contract. Does this include a follow-up visit to ensure the pesticide is working? What guarantees do they offer? What happens if you find the treatment has been ineffective? Make sure all of your questions are answered before signing!

By keeping your home clean and clutter-free, and with the help of a professional pest control company, you should be able to enjoy your home without the annoyance of unwelcome little critters!
