Pest Control Techniques

Although insects and other pests can invade a home at any time of year, summer seems especially problematic. Some pests are relatively harmless, while others can cause a great deal of property damage. Those who like to eat wood are particularly worrisome for homeowners. Termites and carpenter ants are two insects that can damage the structure of a home, which can sometimes cause extensive damage long before effective pest control can be performed.

Check your faucets to make sure they are functioning properly and to fix leaks as they occur, since gaps or holes around pipes can serve as easy entry points for rodents.

The price of ultrasonic pest control devices varies widely, depending on the type of unit you buy and on its range. You can spend anywhere from $20 on one to a couple hundred dollars on one. You can buy them at some hardware stores, or you can purchase them online.

We will now discuss ways to avoid attracting bugs into your home. One method is to focus on your trash. Take out the trash at exterminators least twice a week. If it is not time to take out the trash and your trash bag reeks, tie it up completely.

Pets and Plants: If you have any plants in your home or around your home, you need to keep them in a place that is a little away from the house. Else, they stand a chance of getting poisoned by the spray that is to be used in the house. Also make sure that any kind of pets that you have it could be a lizard a ferret a hamster or even a termite control fish for that matter is removed from the house. No living organism (except the termites) should be present in the house during the tenting process.

That is why you are going to want to have the number for a reliable pest and rodent extermination company in your home. That way, if and when you end up discovering that you are having a rodent problem, you can get a call out for help right away.

UPDATE: After using the Attack Wave Ultrasonic devices, we haven’t seen a bat. To be fair, I do not know if it’s due to the seasons changing (I’ve read that bats migrate every Fall) or the devices.
