FAQs About Pest Prevention

Pest Control Orange County

When you hear the words “pest control,” you probably think about what it takes to get bugs out of your house. Pest prevention, on the other hand, can help you avoid a problem in the first place. Continue for the answers to some questions about pest prevention.

Can pests damage my property?
If you know you have a termite problem, you’ll probably call for pest control right away to avoid damage to your property. What some homeowners don’t realize is that termites aren’t the only types of pests that can do serious damage to your house. Rodents are known to chew through just about anything they can get their teeth on, and certain kinds of ants will chew through wooden structures, just like termites do. Even bees and beetles can do some damage to wood, so don’t wait to call your pest control specialist.

Why do they come inside?
Pests instinctively seek shelter when the weather makes it difficult or uncomfortable to live outside. It’s not just clutter and messes that attract insects and rodents, and even the cleanest houses may be susceptible to an infestation. It tends to be easier to find moisture inside rather than outside during the summer, so keep that in mind when trying to keep pests out of the house during the warm season.

How do I keep them out?
As much as termites, bed bugs, and rodents want to get inside, you can take steps to keep them out. Seal up any cracks and crevices you come across around your house, and clear your gutters of debris. Clean your kitchen and garbage areas, make sure your basement and attic are both dry, and inspect boxes before you bring them into your house.
