What Is Pest Control?

What Is Pest Control?

Summertime is a time for pests. We find ourselves fighting off flying and crawling insects including ants, mosquitos, flies, roaches, termites, and even other types of pests such as rats and mice. In order to enjoy our home and yard in peace, sometimes we need pest control. What is pest control? It is the process of reducing the amount of unwelcome pests and annoying insects in and around your home. You can choose to manage pesky insects yourself with over-the-counter products, by keeping your home clean, or using natural ingredients, or you can leave it to us, your local pest control service.

Unsavory, Unhealthy, and Irritating

Not only is it unsavory, as well as irritating to have flies, ants, mosquitos, rats or mice in your home, it is unhealthy. Flies land on food and can spread germs. Ants can infest your bags of sugar, boxes of cereal, and more; and rats and mice can carry disease. Although some pests are problems year-round, summer is the worst time, especially for insects. Some ways to protect your home against breaches from insects and other pests include:

  • Keep the space clean and uncluttered.
  • Seal any openings, cracks, or crevices that allow easy access from outside.
  • Use commercial pest-control products in and around your house and yard.

You may find that your efforts alone are not wholly combating the problem, in which case you may want to hire a professional pest-control service. Professional services exterminate for pests that seek food and shelter within your home or surrounding buildings, as well as those that cause structural damage during infestation, particularly carpenter ants and termites.  Left untreated, insects that cause structural damage to your home can cost you a great deal of expense in repairs and replacement of buildings.

    I found out that I have mice in my garage. Thanks for the advice about keeping space clean and uncluttered to help prevent pests. Another thing to consider is getting a pest control company that has insurance.

      We’ve also discovered mice in our garage! We first found their droppings when we were cleaning and reorganizing. We’ve been setting traps every day and we catch 4-5 a day! We need a new garage door, as it does have a small hole in it but cannot afford that yet.

    I have always found it convenient that pest control companies will seal any openings, cracks, or crevices. My house has always felt clean, and we like to make sure that it stays that way. I will have to double check and make sure that there are no pests in the house, and that all entry ways are closed for them.

    I’ve been trying to come up with a good way to get my home clear of pests. I didn’t know that it was so difficult to remove them on my own! I’ll have to give a pest control company a shot. Thanks for sharing!
