SPRING HAS SPRUNG! SPRING PEST CONTROL – THINGS YOU CAN DO.

Yes, we said it, Spring has Sprung.  Now its time to do the things to make your home or office uncomfortable and unappealing to pesky pests.  Spring is the time when insects and critters come out of hibernation and emerge.  Their goals are to forage for food, to feed their young, and build nests. Naturally, your home or office looks appealing and they decide to take up residence. Left unchecked, a little nuisance can turn into an infestation.

So how do you stave off an infestation by making your home unappealing, uncomfortable, and most of all inaccessible?  You have probably begun your annual spring cleaning and this is a good time to take the little steps to keep these nuisances away.  Without further ado, as you embark on spring cleaning this season, employ these simple tips for a pest-free home:

  1. Inspect Clothing – For most, spring means putting away winter clothes and pulling out spring and summer attire.  This is a perfect time, since clothing that has been stored away in boxes, to carefully inspect each piece for signs of pests and moths.  Do not ignore small holes, they are a warning sign. The clothes your putting away should also be inspected for unexpected guests.  These pests like to hide in dark places.
  2. Clear and Clean Kitchen Cabinets & Drawers – Closet drawers are the most commonly cleaned area in the spring but should not be the only area addressed. Your kitchen cabinets and drawers can be a harbor for creepy crawly creatures. The crumbs that occasionally land within your kitchen can quickly add up and attract pests. Be sure to remove all food particles and wash down your shelves.
  3. Clean Those Closets Too! – Yes, the closets that are rarely opened.  As your emptying the closet, pay particularly close attention to what might be hiding inside. Empty those closets and give them a good cleaning. There might not be much in there, but you’ll have peace of mind when you discover there’s nothing hiding inside.
  4. Check and Seal Entry Points – Since the weather is nice, take the opportunity to walk around your house and seal off any entry points that could be an access point for pests to enter the comfort of your home. Check your doors and screens to ensure they’re intact and free of any cracks and crevices. Check your windows to make sure they are sealing properly.  If there is an opening, the pests will find a way in.
  5. Carpet Cleaning is a Necessity – Most vacuum their home regularly.  However, there could be stealthy crumbs and items hiding inside your carpet. A deep cleaning or professional cleaning of your carpet could improve your indoor air quality and remove any lingering spots and stains. Moreover, a good cleaning will eliminate the particles embedded deep inside that can attract pests.

Unfortunately, your best efforts to prevent pests from entering your home could be for naught and an infestation still occurs.

DO IT YOURSELF RODENT INFESTATION TREATMENT IS NOT ADVISED

Rodent infestations are not a do-it-yourself project. Right now, it’s the dead of winter, in New Jersey, and rodents are looking for warm shelter with a food supply.  The other seasons they look for the same reasons, but the cold makes the need more urgent.

If you are, unfortunately, dealing with an annoying rodent infestation, after you call for help, you most likely want to know how rodents found their way into your home. Whereas, if you do not have an infestation or signs of rodent infiltration, then the knowledge of prevention is very important.  Our goal is to provide you with the tips, techniques, and information around rodent infestations and why you should not go it alone.

There are many experts, such as zoologists and pest management experts, with information that is factual regarding rats and mice. However, rodent control often turns the facts and trustworthy information into non-applicable pieces of knowledge or unsuccessfully addresses the issue. Pest control experts, such as On the Spot Pest Control, are trained to use a wide range of strategies and tactics to detect the presence of mice and rats in a home or office and they must be properly exercised to achieve results.  Simply trapping rodents is not as easy as it sounds. Their instinctual defensive behaviors assist in their avoidance of most traps.  Proper placement is the first step to extraction, but behavioral insights is required. Additionally, traps are not created equal.  Wrong trap equals failure.  On the Spot Pest Control knows what traps work and which ones don’t. 

Improper techniques used in removal could leave rodents behind and leave you exposed to the dangers that come with having mice or rats in your home such as sickness, damaged building materials, damaged belongings, ticks and fleas, the smell of urine, and a distinct risk house fire.

Rodent Prevention Tips

Follow these simple tips and you can prevent the unfortunate rodent infestation many New Jersey residents and business owners have experienced.  Do not let your home be their next home.

  • Remove clutter from your property.
  • Maintain your lawn and garden areas.
  • Keep trash in tightly sealed containers.
  • Remove any water sources from your property.
  • Make sure there are no food sources for rodents outside.
  • Trim back any trees or vegetation well away from your foundation, walls, or roofline.
  • Seal up all gaps, cracks, or holes in your home.
  • Keep the inside of your home clean and free of food and water sources.
  • Acquire the services of On the Spot Pest Control!
