As summer cools off and we head into the moderate winter months in San Diego, bugs begin to seek shelter indoors. Without a regular pest control service, it will be the homeowner’s job to protect their home from invasions by these unwanted pests. A regular pest control service includes proofing and eliminates bugs around the property so any preventative techniques are unnecessary.
However, if your home is without protection against insects, you will want to take some time out to deter any bug infestations.
First, inspect common areas where pests like to hide such as attics, basements, kitchens, wood or mulch piles, or under roof eaves. Then, seal off any openings or crevices to the home since most bugs fit through the smallest cracks.
Finally, remove the clutter from your property and make sure the cleaning in kitchen and dining areas is frequent. In San Diego, the most common pests that invade homes are rodents, ants, and German cockroaches. Human foods are a major attractant to these pests and clutter provides an ideal place for them to nest.
If you are noticing signs of pest problems, you should call a pest control specialist to diagnose your problem and provide recommendations to resolve the issue. If you take on the problem yourself, it is imperative to distribute store-bought pesticides where they will attract the pest. If not, the control method will be ineffective and your time and money is wasted. A pest control specialist has the knowledge and experience to effectively remove pests. Call today and Pro Pacific will provide your home with a free inspection and recommendations for protecting your home against bugs.
