Pest Control Tips for Home Owners

The summer is ending and "Florida" Fall is in the air. We will see fewer general pests as the weather gets cooler and pests are a lot easier to manage.
The cooler air makes it easier for  homeowners to check on a few things to help eliminate pests.
Trimming shrubs, keeping plants and tree limbs  away from the house will be easier with the cooler weather. If you leave 2 -3 feet around the perimeter of your home it allows your pest control technician to treat the perimeter with easier access.
Sealing  up cracks with caulk ,replacing  the strips along the doors and garage will help
keep pests out of your home.

Even the tidiest home can end up with a roach problem. It's how quickly you respond that will make the difference between a one time sighting and a problem.

If you saw one cockroach  you  may see offspring  weeks or months later. The  female German Cockroach can carry up to 40 eggs and can produce 300-400 offspring in a life time. Roaches can create problems for children and adults with asthma and they carry bacteria.

Part of integrated pest management and "green lifestyle" is inspecting the property and looking for areas that are conducive to pests. Dampness, dark areas such as under cabinets make perfect conditions for roaches and other pests.

Don't disregard a sighting call  your pest control specialist and ask them to inspect your home.
at the first sighting.
