Summer is in full swing. But, with the warmer weather, you can expect to encounter some of the pests that come with the season. Ants, flies, rodents, termites and cockroaches are just some to look out for. These little critters love the heat.
The first order of business should be to create an environment they WON’T thrive in or be attracted to. Pests are attracted to water and left over food — any food, even your pets’ food. It’s vital to keep your kitchen and eating areas clean and free from food particles. Leaving a used plate anywhere is a big no-no. Perhaps feed your dog or cat twice a day to avoid food standing around as a target for pests.
The next step is to keep your eyes open for unwanted visitors. If you see a cockroach, you can be sure there might be more. Whatever you do, don’t squash them. They might be close to hatching their eggs and drop them. Even with the cockroach dead the eggs are still able to hatch.
What to Do If You Encounter Pests in Your Home
The first instinct is typically to run to the store and buy all the bug spray you can get your hands on. This might be a temporary solution but generally won’t eradicate pests completely.
