Infestations from pests such as cockroaches, ants, and rodents can be incredibly frustrating for homeowners and businesses alike. However, with the help of a professional exterminator, it is possible to eradicate these pests and prevent them from returning. But what can be done to prevent an infestation from reoccurring after initial treatment has been applied? Here are some preventative measures that can be taken:
- Keep a clean and clutter-free environment: Pests thrive in environments where they can easily hide and find food. Regular cleaning and maintenance of your home or business can help prevent pests from returning. Make sure to clean up any food or spills, and regularly dispose of garbage.
- Seal all entry points: Pests can enter through small cracks and crevices. To prevent them from returning, seal all entry points, including windows, doors, and pipes. This will not only prevent pests from entering but also help regulate the temperature and save on energy costs.
- Keep the outdoors maintained: Pests often enter homes or businesses from the outside. Keep the outdoors maintained by trimming trees and shrubs, removing any debris or clutter, and keeping a close eye on standing water which can become a breeding ground for mosquitos.
- Regular inspections: Regular inspections by a professional exterminator can help identify any potential entry points or signs of an infestation before it becomes a bigger problem. They can also provide ongoing treatments to ensure that pests do not return.
While these preventative measures can be helpful in avoiding a reoccurring infestation, it’s important to remember that professional exterminators are the experts when it comes to pest control. They have access to the latest technologies and treatments, and can identify and treat the root cause of the infestation.
