As the year is set to end, the holiday season embraces us again with happy memories and the promise of gifts and fun times with the family. While the festivities are happening, changes within the environment are set to change as well. The transition from spring to summer is a spectacular sight. But unfortunately, such changes bring unwelcome visitors aka pests, too.
These summer invaders will sneak into one’s home and will seek protection from the changing temperatures outside. How should we resolve the changes that these pests can bring to our homes and properties? Today, we’ll show you how…
Contrary to what people may have noticed, termites are almost always present no matter the weather. Although they are feeding at a slower rate, termites will continue wreaking havoc on your home.
If you suspect a termite infestation, you can always try chemical solutions, wood treatments, or liquid pesticides. But like always, the best course of action is to call on the professionals for help just in case you have too much on your hands for planning during the holiday season or you’ve just about tried everything and nothing seems to work as they keep coming back to create more damage.
Notorious for being disease-riddled, cockroaches are mostly active in summer and will multiply at incredible speeds all year-round. Different species of cockroaches can invade your home and bring diseases that may endanger your family’s health. The best thing you can do to avoid cockroach infestation is keeping your house clean. Yes, December’s a time for festivities and a whole lot of eating. But, you shouldn’t neglect dirty dishes and a messy kitchen. You can also spray cockroach repellent after cleaning.
As tiny and cute as they may seem, rodents are not to be mistaken for house pets. Rodents can cause damage to your property, rummage food and scraps, and bring diseases. What’s more, a small number of them may seem manageable at first until the females produce litters of baby rodents which can easily become way out of control.
To prevent them from coming to your home in search of food, water, and shelter, it’s best to cut extending branches that can serve as their point of entry. Cut tall grasses, too. Always clean your kitchen and layout some rodent traps if you suspect they are in your home.
Although summer should be a time of great tidings and carefree joy, pests can easily ruin the occasion. It is best to have a plan of action immediately or call the professionals for help.
