Roaches need moisture to survive, so it’s no surprise that they will enter your home in search of it. Leaky faucets, drains, pipes, and open showers are all common attractants for cockroaches, but there are some things you can do to make your home less attractive.
Check for gaps in your window and door seals, and caulk any areas that aren’t properly sealed. You’ll need to do this periodically, but it’s one of the best ways to keep roaches out of your home. It’s also an inexpensive and easy fix that’s worth the effort.
Ants are social insects that live in organized colonies with three main castes: queens, workers and males (Figure 1). The queen lays eggs, the workers search for food and locate nest sites and the males appear periodically to mate.
They are responsible for a wide variety of positive effects on the environment, conditioning soil by moving and spreading it as well as assisting in the decomposition of plant matter and animal remains. They also help keep pest populations low by carrying seeds and dead insect carcasses.
Keeping vegetation, mulch, landscape timbers and firewood away from the foundation of buildings helps prevent ants from entering homes. Insecticides applied around the building perimeter can often inhibit ant activity, but they do not kill ants that enter through below-ground openings in foundations.
A good ant control strategy involves eliminating sources of food and water, reducing visitation and using slow-acting baits. These are most effective when combined with sanitation techniques.
Pests like cockroaches, rodents, ants, and mosquitoes spread disease, cause damage to property, and harm human health. Mosquitoes are particularly dangerous, as they can transmit diseases such as malaria and dengue fever.
A single mosquito bite can make you ill, and it’s important to get rid of them as quickly as possible. You should consider getting professional help if you have a mosquito problem, as they’re very difficult to control on your own.
You’ll need a professional pest company to find the source of the infestation and get rid of it. They’ll be able to do a thorough inspection of your home or business, find out what is causing the issue, and create an effective plan for eliminating and preventing future infestations.
Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown, wingless insects about the size of an apple seed. They are blood-sucking, nocturnal pests that prefer sleeping and resting on human hosts.
These invasive pests can enter homes through luggage, folded clothing, bedding, and used mattresses. They are also known to hitchhike in apartments and hotels.
A common infestation sign is dark spots on sheets, mattress covers or furniture that are a mixture of dried bed bug feces and tan-colored ‘skins’ shed by immature nymphs. These areas may also have a sweet, musty odor from the pheromones the bugs release to attract their mates.
Detecting infestations early and effectively controlling them is important in preventing the spread of these pests. Pro-active surveillance by tenants, housekeepers, and pest managers is essential.
