Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) September 11, 2009 -–
Pest Bomb (http://www.PestBomb.com) reminds residents and homeowners that there are several common pests that tend to look to invade homes in the Fall, namely roaches, mice, rats, yellow jackets and wasps. None of these are friendly houseguests so preventing their ability to infest a residence is always the best practice. Pest Bomb offers guidelines for residents to aid them in avoiding any potential pest issues this fall:
1. Be careful when bringing in firewood. The type of pests that might be living in or on the wood are the type you definitely don’t want to invite inside.
2. Watch food sources that may attract pests like pet food and dirty dishes. Keep these covered and unavailable when not in use, wash them frequently, etc.
3. Never leave the lid off of a garbage can, whether indoors or out.
4. Keep compost piles far from the house.
5. Rinse bottles and other containers before putting them in the recycle bin.
Scheduling professional pest control service quarterly will help prevent a majority of problems. Sometimes, specific treatments or more frequent services are required in order to keep homes pest free. Residents should pay attention and, if a particular problem occurs, get in touch with a professional and pass on as many specifics regarding the pest issue as possible. For instance, if a cockroach is seen during the daytime, it’s most likely an infestation. The roach was most likely only seen during the day because its typical hiding place was overflowing.
Pest Control issues can vary by season and are often specific to the region. While DIY pest control options are available, many consumers find that hiring a professional is, in most cases, a more affordable option. The ineffective nature of many of the pest control treatments generally available to the public often results in a waste of time and money. On top of that, different pest issues require different handling. A consumer may have to run through a number of tests in order to find the right one, but a professional will know the area, the pests and the most effective treatments to control the situation.
