Pest Control in the Spring
Spring is well and truly here and that means it’s time for many of those nasty pests that we all hate to come out and invade our homes.
During Spring, certain pests will start to pose an increased threat to our homes.
These pests can include cockroaches, ants, spiders, ticks, mosquitoes and many more.
For some of these pests there is not too much you can do to prevent them coming to your property.
But for pests like cockroaches, ants, spiders and mosquitoes, there are some measures you can take to make your home less susceptible to them.
Here are some pest control tips
- Prevent their Entry:
Ensure that your fly screens are properly fitted and have no holes in them. This will stop insects that fly in to your home.
- Reduce Clutter:
Have a spring clean; many pests love cluttered stored items as it provides very good hiding places for them. The big the problem is that if insects and rodents like to harbour within clutter. That’s where spiders such as Redbacks will hide.
- External Walls an Eaves:
Check these areas for wasps nests and spiders.
If you find a wasp nest – don’t attempt to remove it yourself, their stings are painful.
Spiders commonly found on external walls are black house spiders. While these spiders aren’t the most harmful, they do attract other spiders that love to eat them such as the toxic White Tail Spider.
Spiders can be easily controlled by Amalgamated Pest Control with a 12 month service warranty.
- Trees and Foliage:
Keep trees and foliage trimmed well back from the external walls of your home.
This is commonly how ants and other pests will access your home.
If you have had a pest control treatment at your home this is especially important as ants will bypass the barriers in place and access you home.
- Clean Out Gutters:
Guttering that is full of leaves and other matter can mean that water is built up within and not flowing away as it should. This will be a good source of water for ants, mosquitoes and other pests.
- Garbage Bins:
Keep your bins sealed – Inside and out.
If pests are able to access your outside bins, they will.
There is plenty of food for them in there. Pest like flies, cockroaches, ants and rodents will take advantage of bins.
