Pest Control Tips from our Exterminators
The customer has a responsibility as well. Regular cleaning and emptying trash will always improve a pest problem situation. Chemicals must be given time to work. If you are still seeing live bugs after 10-14 days, we may need to reapply or try a different chemical.
The insect problem areas of your home may or may not be as big a surprise as you would think. Remember that most all pests have three main things in common: Food, Water, and Shelter. For those reasons, our Charlotte exterminators know that the two easiest places for pests to thrive will be your Kitchen/Dining Room and your bathroom.
The Kitchen/Dining Room area is usually the biggest problem area for most people due to the fact that there is an abundance of two key ingredients: Food and Water. Most insects can be found in cabinets and/or pantry areas due to most grain foods, sugars, pastas, and most basic staples of cooking found in every home. The reason why they congregate in these areas would be the same as we humans would, necessity. If a pest can go two feet and have all he can eat and drink, why would he travel farther?
The Bathroom area presents another resource for pests, a dark, wet, and cool place away from the elements of the outside world. Again, they have plenty of moisture to survive and have found a place where they can nest and breed easily due to the fact that they are contained in an environment that provides what they need. Bathrooms can easily attract a multitude of species of insects, so it also makes it a feeding ground for most common species of spiders as well.
Charlotte Exterminator Checklist For Homeowners
- Place all pantry foods in plastic sealed containers. This will help eliminate over half of your basic insect and pest problems.
- Wipe down all surfaces after every meal or preparation of meals. This keeps small food particles out of reach and off of the floors.
- Clean your garbage disposal; food particles build up on the cutting blades and cause odor and attractants for insects of all kinds.
- Indoor plants are a breeding ground for pests. Soil, water and foilage are as close to being in their natural habitat as being outside. If you keep plants inside, do not over water them. This causes many pest problems to develop.
- Clean your bathroom drains regularly. Materials build up in this area and cause odors that again can draw pests to this location.
- Sustained moisture can help any pests that wish to breed or just nest for a while.
- Trash bins need to be emptied regularly. Any dense material or compacted material can make a great place for spiders to set up.
- Standing Water, like a day at the pool for the kids, is a playground for pests.
These are the first steps for insect and pest prevention. Our Charlotte exterminators can help you eliminate more difficult pest problems.
