Nothing is more annoying than pests. The moment they appear inside your home, you know you have a problem. You don’t want to be haunted by the possibility of what might come crawling out from the floorboards of your home. Preparation is key to guarding your home against any uninvited guests, whether it be ants, termites, spiders, roaches or even rodents like rats and mice. If you notice signs of an encroaching infestation or want to prevent them before they even get started, it’s good to be aware of what kind of home protection and pest control League City offers before you spend money on untested DIY solutions.
How to Prevent Pests from Invading Your Home
Everything begins with what you can do to prevent pests from invading your home. Before you consider getting rid of pests already in your home, it’s important to block entry points to prevent any more from coming in, such as doors, windows, holes in the walls, etc. Your doors should be for family and friends only, not neighborhood vermin. Hiring pest control to examine your home eliminates the worry that you missed a spot. A good pest control company not only sprays the perimeter of your home, but identifies how the pests are getting in and seals the cracks.
Do not provide pests with easy sources of food, water, and shelter. Food left out in the open, especially near walls and the floor, or not sealed away properly brings pests swarming into your home. Free standing water, such as pools, water fountains, bird baths, and leaky pipes, also encourages long-term infestation. Near the end of fall, vermin, especially mice, become desperate for shelter. You could leave steel wool for mice at the entry points (because they can’t chew through it) or better yet have a pest control company inspect your home around this time can remove any potential problems areas in and around your home, such as cracks in the foundation, holes around windows/doors, or even pet food left too close to entrances. Pet dishes could bring pests, especially around the ground near the back door or garage. League city resides near the Galveston Bay area, meaning hot, humid summers and cold, humid winters, encourage pests year-round. It will be good to have your home evaluated every 2-3 years to keep your home in tip top condition.
