Why You Should Consider Year-Round Pest Control For Your Hendersonville Home
January 16, 2020 - Pest Control
Our world is filled with creatures of all shapes and sizes. There are mammals, aquatic creatures, and birds. Surprisingly, just insects alone have over 5.5 billion species. That’s crazy! What is even crazier is that insects outnumber humans from 200 million to one. Considering this fact, it can be easy to see why insects make up the majority of home-invading pests. If you are being outnumbered by insects and other home-invading pests, we have some good news. There is a way to stop them. Here is why you should consider year-round pest control for your Hendersonville home.
Year-Round Pest Problems
Just like spring, summer, fall, and winter, every pest has its season. Some pests are rampant during the fall months as the temperatures cool and push them into homes. Others are more of a problem during the summer with the heat and humidity. Regardless of what time of year it is, one pest or another will be a problem.
The problems pests can cause can be broken down into 3 basic categories: annoyance, destruction, and danger. Some pests are all three. If you were to do some research about common household pests, you may find out some shocking truths. For instance, termites cost homeowners 5 billion dollars each year, and rodents can start a house fire. What’s most disturbing is that many pests can carry and transmit diseases to you, your family, and even your pets. All in all, pests are not creatures you want to share your home with.
The Right And Wrong Way To Get Rid Of Pests
When it comes to getting and keeping pests out of your home, there is a right way and a wrong way.
Right: Use a caulking gun to seal gaps and cracks in your home’s exterior foundation and address damages to screens, roofing, and siding that could allow pests to get inside.
Wrong: Spray potentially dangerous chemicals inside and outside your home to try to kill pests. If used improperly, this method can be hazardous to your family and pets.
Right: Store leftover foods inside airtight containers and clean frequently so that pests cannot find scraps to eat around your home.
Wrong: Use essential oils wherever you have seen pests to deter them. Though somewhat effective at first, essential oils tend to lose their effect over a long period of time.
Right: Address moisture issues around your home by fixing leaks, repairing broken gutters, eliminating sources of standing water, and installing dehumidifiers around your home.
Wrong: Place baiting traps everywhere to catch buzzing and crawling pests. This may work for lighter pest problems but will not be a solution in the long run if you want to keep pests out of your home.
At the end of the day, exclusion, cleanliness, and limiting pests' food and water supplies is the best thing you can do to deter pests from your home. To go above and beyond DIY, we have a better option for you here at Noble Pest Solutions.
