The Basics of Pest Control: Learning About Pest Behaviors and Treatments
Pests are something that a lot of people deal with daily: flies entering your home, ants marching in, cockroaches and rodents scurrying around in search of food. While a lot of people encounter these pests, not many of them know much about them. Of course, pests are a nuisance, but when you get into the nitty-gritty of it, they are also incredible creatures who have found ways to survive even some of the harshest conditions.
Pest Breakdown: Understanding Pests to Understand Treatment
- Crawlers: Pests like ants, spiders, and cockroaches are considered crawlers in the pest control industry. These pests tend to be tricky to treat because each of them has unique behaviors. Ants are typically obvious to spot, making them an easier target. Cockroaches, on the other hand, are much more elusive, which is why we make sure we inspect your space with precision.
- Rodents: Similar to roaches, rodents are fast and do most of their damage at night. Waiting until it’s dark and human activity has subsided, rats and mice come out of hiding and search for food, water, and anything they can gnaw on. The best defense against these pests is strategically placed bait and traps that lure them in at night.
- Flyers: Flies, wasps, and mosquitoes are often referred to as flyers. Flyers can actually be much more destructive than people give them credit for. Flies contaminate food, wasps sting, and mosquitoes can transmit diseases. Eliminating stagnant water and food crumbs, and keeping an eye out for nests can help you avoid dealing with these pests.
Seasons and Pests
Many people think that pest control is something seasonal since pest activity is mostly up in the spring and summer months. In truth, pest control is important to maintain year-round.
It’s true that pests do not typically reproduce during the fall and winter, but the colder months lead them to find their way inside for shelter and consistent food and water sources. Most of their energy is spent to survive the cold, but it doesn’t keep them from infiltrating your home however they can.
Keeping up with year-round pest control can keep your home protected from these determined pests, helping you sleep at night knowing that you don’t have to worry about what might be hiding in the dark.
