Preparing Your Home for Fall Pests

pest controlWhen the cooler weather of the fall season arrives, you might begin to notice new pests that begin to invade the home. Some pests simply want to be in a warm environment while others are looking for a source of moisture. State Pest Control can help prepare your home to prevent pests from getting inside when they aren't wanted.

One of the ways to keep pests out is to treat the basement and attic spaces. These are common areas where insects and other pests tend to get inside the home as they are darker environments and sometimes have the moisture that pests desire. Get rid of as many spider webs as possible. It's also important to get rid of other homes that pests have made, such as wasp nests and ant hills. When State Pest Control gets rid of the pests’ homes, they will have to find somewhere else to live. After using environmentally safe products outside and inside your home, pests won't want to use the building as a refuge.

The carpets and furniture should be treated to get rid of any fleas, mites or other small pests that you can't see with the naked eye. Baits can be placed in areas where pests are known to linger or have been seen in the past.

Helpful tips: Look around the exterior of the home to see if there are any entry points where pests can get inside. Seal these areas off to prevent the animals from having a pathway to the inside of the home. Keep any trash away from the home, especially food that you might want to throw out. Animals of all kinds are usually attracted to food, and if you continue to throw it in a trash can or in the yard, then they will want to stay on the property. State Pest Control can prepare the home for fall pests by treating windows and doorways to keep small pests from building webs and nests that would allow them to stay in one place.
