Do You Know What’s Crawling Around Your House Right Now?

Pests are living creatures, primarily insects, that are a nuisance to most homeowners. So, why do we need pest control? It’s important because pests carry diseases, contaminate food, and cause damage to property. The most common household pests are mice, rats, ants, spiders, and cockroaches. The methods used to manage or deter pests – including poisoning, extermination, and trapping – all fall under the umbrella of “pest control”.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach

Eliminating each kind of pest requires a different approach. For example, food sources and nesting materials are particularly attractive to rodents like rats and mice. So, the first step to eliminating these pests is properly storing food. Next, all holes or cracks must be sealed where they might enter and nest.

Another pest that is attracted to food sources is cockroaches. Cockroaches can also live in very dirty conditions. A thorough cleanup of any potential food sources will minimize buildup of dirt or waste in your home and ultimately drive cockroaches away.

When you hire Southern Pest Control to eliminate pests, a technician will come to your home to assess the situation, then recommend the best course of action. This may include a one-time treatment or a series of treatments depending on the severity of the problem.
