Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
The holidays are coming up, and with them comes an influx of a variety of pests. Fortunately, if homeowners are proactive, there are preventative measures they can take to help prevent these seasonal infestations, said Mike Fischer, owner of Fischer’s Pest Control.
“As the Las Vegas Valley gets cooler, certain areas are going to see an increase in rodent and bee populations,” said Fischer. “With a few household items and some free time, people can save themselves a lot of frustration by making the first move against these pests.”
One of the first things to do in preparation for winter pests is to plug up all the cracks and holes around the house, said Fisher. This includes sealing up holes in stucco and weather-stripping windows and doors. Homeowners should also make sure to check for holes in any screens, and patch those up.
It’s also important to keep the home as clean as possible. Fischer said this doesn’t just mean wiping down counters and floors, people should also make sure to store and dispose of food quickly. This means taking out the garbage often, and sealing up all leftovers tightly before putting them away.
“Another thing people don’t always think about is to keep piles of firewood and other debris away from the house,” said Fischer. “These are great places for pests to live, breed, and wait for an opening into the house.”
If all else fails, or if there is already a significant infestation in the home, it’s best to hire a professional, said Fischer.
