3-Things-Pest-Control-Pros-Want You to Know
Before you call a pest control company, here are a few things that they would like you to know:
- Clean kitchens do not prevent infestations, although it helps: We all know that food is one of the main attractions of bugs and rodents. However, the experts say that just maintaining a clean kitchen and making sure that dirty dishes and open chips bags will not prevent your home from being infested. Making sure that your gutters are unclogged and any decorative baths and pools are drained regularly is important as moisture attracts and sustains different pests, apart from food.
- Good hygiene cannot fend off certain bugs: Many people believe that if you maintain good hygiene, your home will not be infested by pests. Well, this is not true! According to pest control experts, bugs such as bedbugs are not bothered by whether or not your home is clean. They feed on your blood and not on the food left on your kitchen counter or sink. You should check luggage, furniture and other items before bringing them into your home and unpack in the garage. Last but not least, think twice about getting that great sofa at the flea market just before you are getting a fantastic deal!
- Avoid DIY pest control methods: Another important piece of advice that pest control pros give homeowners is to avoid trying to get rid of pests on their own before calling the professionals. If you do not know what you are doing, you could leave a mess for the pest control company you call and leave their services ineffective.
