Ants are primarily attracted by food. This could be anything from crumbs on your kitchen floor, uncovered food in the pantry, overripe fruit, pet food bowls, or even moisture from a leaking pipe. They are particularly attracted to anything sweet or greasy.
Signs of a bee or wasp infestation may include sighting large numbers of them hovering around your property or discovering their nest. Nests can range from small burrows in the ground (common for some types of bees) to large, intricate structures in trees, buildings, or underground (common for wasps).
Earwigs often enter homes through small cracks and crevices. They can also come inside by hitching a ride on objects like outdoor furniture or plants that are brought inside the home.
You can prevent flea infestations by using preventive measures such as flea treatments on your pets, regularly washing your pet’s bedding, and keeping your home clean. We also provide preventive treatments.
Good sanitation practices can deter flies. Keep your kitchen and dining area clean, especially of food residues. Take out the garbage regularly, clean up pet waste promptly, and ensure your windows and doors are properly sealed. Installing screens can also be effective.
Rodents can cause significant damage to your home, including chewed wires, insulation, and walls. They can also spread diseases, contaminate food, and cause a foul odor.
Spiders often come inside to seek shelter and food. They are attracted to warm, dark, small spaces like wall cracks, corners, air vents and in the basement.
To prevent a termite infestation, you can reduce the availability of food and water sources, store firewood away from the house, reduce moisture around your home’s foundation, and maintain an appropriate distance between soil and wooden parts of your home.
While ticks prefer outdoor environments, they can be brought indoors on clothing or pets. They typically do not survive for long indoors, but some species, such as the brown dog tick, can adapt to indoor living.
