Welcome to my site about pest control. I'm Miranda Maloney. Although many people fuss loudly about the presence of spiders in the home, these creatures often clear out the bugs that cause far worse problems. Spiders consume beetles, cockroaches, moths and other pests that wreak havoc throughout the house. Thankfully, however, you can hire a pest control professional to eliminate bugs in your home if you do not want to co-habitate with spiders. In fact, pest control professionals can eliminate the spiders as well. I will share information about pest control tactics, both natural and commercial, on this site. Please follow along to learn more.
When you meet with a pest control company for the first time, they'll probably look around your house for signs of bugs and the type of environment your house provides. This helps the exterminator decide on the initial treatments to provide.
You might even want to look around your house yourself before the pest control company arrives, so if you find pests hiding somewhere, you can point them out to the pest control company. Here are some common places pests might be hiding in your home.
You might see spiders, moths, beetles, and roaches hiding in your pantry since these bugs like to get into your stored food. Spiders may not invade the food, but they might increase their numbers if they can dine on an abundance of roaches and moths.
You'll want the pest control company to eradicate these bugs so they won't contaminate your food. You may also want to transfer the food to a container that seals rather than a cardboard box that is easy for the pests to get into.
Under The Sink Or Refrigerator
If your kitchen sink has a slow drip from a drain or condensation from your refrigerator spills on the floor, the dampness may attract insect pests. Your kitchen might soon be overrun with silverfish, roaches, and even termites.
You'll need to fix the water leak problem and then let a pest control professional treat your home to get rid of the pests. Kitchen pests that love a wet environment would probably like living under the refrigerator or under the sink where it's humid.
In Your Closet
Moths like to invade closets. Their larvae can be destructive to clothing fibers. You don't want pests ruining your clothes, so you'll need to find a way to eliminate the moths and larvae. A pest control professional can provide treatments and also teach you what you need to do to get the bugs out of your clothes.
Unless you have a finished basement, your basement may be dark and quiet. That makes it a perfect hiding place for pests. You may find spiders in your basement, and if your basement is humid and musty like many basements are, you might have bugs like silverfish.
The pest control company will probably check your basement carefully for signs of pest problems. They may even find signs of rodent activity, and you'll want rodent treatments to get rid of the animals fast.
On your first visit, the exterminator may treat the inside of your house if they find an insect infestation. They'll probably treat the outside as well. On the following preventative treatments, they may just treat the outside to keep new bugs from getting indoors. For more information, contact an exterminator near you.
