Tips For Pest Control

A common challenge of pest control is more of an  ethical one – humane treatment and the professional  use of  pesticides makes eradicating insects tricky. Chemical options can be limited by the  environmental concerns in your area. If you are unsure of the harms and risks of  using over the counter pesticides, it is best to consult a professional such as Integrity Pest Elimination , who will be  able to eliminate pests in an environmentally eco- friendly way.  However, a few general measures can be taken  to help prevent pests from infesting your home:

  • Seal all exposed cracks on the exterior of your  home (ie – weather strips under doors)
  • Keep your plants trimmed and all excess growth  away from the house, as roof rats will use nearby trees as access points to  attics.
  • Take out garbage regularly and store all bags in  sealed containers to prevent ants.
  • Repair any rotten wood in your home; insects are  often fond of it
  • Dispose of any stagnant water regularly (such as  refilling birdbaths), as it will attract mosquitoes

    I appreciate your tip to keep plants trimmed and trees away from direct contact with your house in order to limit rat infestations. I also like what you said about disposing of any stagnant water regularly. I’ll be sure to refer to your article the next time I have to deal with rat control.

  2. Cindy Tesler

    I agree that a common challenge for pest control is an ethical one. More specifically you talked about the difference between humane treatment and the use of pesticides. I think it’s a good idea to choose a pest control company that offers multiple methods of pest control so that you can choose the option that you prefer.

  3. Fred Harvey

    When most people discover a pest problem, they want the problem eliminated immediately. However, most problems can wait a few days so you have time to select a competent, reasonably priced company. It is wise to obtain several estimates from prospective companies.

  4. Luke Smith

    Thanks for your tip to seal the exposed cracks on the exterior of your home to prevent pests from getting into your home. I feel like learning all the little tricks like this would be a great way to prevent any issues from developing. I feel like if there is already a major problem in place, however, it would make more sense to call a professional pest service.

  5. Jenna Hunter

    We have had a terrible infestation of ants in our kitchen for two weeks now. It was useful to know that one should take out garbage regularly and store all bags in sealed containers to prevent ants. We will be sure to do that from now on to help reduce the number of ants that are coming into our house!

  6. Annika Larson

    I’m afraid we may have a problem with bed bugs, and I know that these can be very hard to get rid of. Getting a professional to help us seems like the only reasonable things to do for the safety of our family. After this process is done, we’ll be sure to apply these tips to avoid future problems. I hadn’t thought of plants being a contributor to pests in the home. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Chris Winters

    I can see why you would want to eliminate any cracks and openings in your home. We happen to find a lot of evidence of cockroaches in our basement. I definitely think that we should consider finding a pest control service that could get rid of them for us.

  8. John

    My wife and I have been noticing an alarming amount of bugs entering our home this spring. I think it would be helpful if we took the article’s advice and sealed all the cracks in our home as a precaution to see if that helps. We have two dogs so spraying to keep the bugs away is our last resort option.

  9. Tomas Killington

    My brother recently moved into a used home. While he was gardening, he noticed a few bugs on the exterior of his home, and he wants to make sure there isn’t an issue. I didn’t realize trimming your plants so that they’re away from the house can help prevent infestation. I’ll be sure my brother calls a pest control service if there are any issues.

  10. Gloria Durst

    Keeping plants trimmed seems like a good way to keep pests from infesting your home. It would seem that you would need to do this to also keep them from infesting your trees. I’m looking for an insect control service so I’ll have to find someone who is going to help me prevent an infestation as well as get rid of it.

  11. Johnathan

    Thanks for the tips! We got into a bad habit of waiting too long to take out the garbage in my house and it’s resulting in a pest issue. Hopefully we can get it sorted out because it’s driving me absolutely crazy

  12. Johnathan

    I appreciate the share & tips! Getting rid of stagnant water has worked wonders for some of my family members. It really attracts more problems to your home than many people realize

  13. Afton Jackson

    Recently, my brother moved into an older home. While he was gardening, he saw some bugs on the home, so he’s looking for a good pest control company that can evaluate the area. I never realized how important it is to choose a service that uses a human, yet effective treatment. I’ll be sure to share this info with my brother.

  14. Kourtney Jensen

    I like the tips you gave on how to limit the amount of pests that may acquire in your home. A big one that I agree with is keeping all food closed, and on a shelf where it’s clean. If any food is left out, it attracts bugs. I’ve never thought a lot about the rotten wood recommendation and will be something I stay aware of. I hear termites are a big problem with rotten wood. Is that true? Sometimes you take all of these precautions but bugs can be resilient, as I’ve experienced, and a pest removal company has to come out and take care of it professionally.

  15. Annika Larson

    We have noticed a lot of ants around the foundation of our home. Especially with summer here, the kids are spending a lot of time outside, and we want to make sure these ants are exterminated to avoid the kids getting bitten or bothered. As you mentioned, a professional will be able to eliminate these pests in an environmentally eco-friendly way, and then we will do everything possible to avoid further problems.

  16. Marcus Coons

    It really helped when you talked about how it is important to choose a pest control company that can get rid of pests in an eco-friendly way. I can see how finding a company like this can help you avoid putting your family at risk while making sure the pests are permanently removed from your home. We are moving to a new house and want to make sure it does not have any spiders or ants before we move in so we are looking for a reputable company in the area.

  17. Barbera Peters

    There are some insects that I cannot identify in my home that I need to find a pest control company for but while I wait, I thought that it would be good to know how to prevent them. You said that sealing all exposed cracks on the exterior of the home can help with preventing insects or pests from getting in. That is a great point for me to remember while I look for a pest control company.

  18. Michael Robinson

    Thanks for the tips on how to take care of your pest problems. I currently live in a friend of mine’s basement and sometimes bugs come out at night and I need to do something about that. Just like you mentioned, I should seal up all those exposed cracks. Thanks again!

  19. Silas Knight

    I love the pest control tips you have here. It’s cool to learn that we should be sealing the cracks under our doors with something. We’ve got ant problems, so maybe that would help. We also need to hire a pro.

  20. Ivy Baker

    This is some really good information about pest control. I liked that you explained that it would be smart to close all of the exposed cracks in your home. That is good for me to know because I would hate to get bugs or mice in my home. It might also be good for me to get my home sprayed for bugs as an extra method.

  21. John

    I like your tip to seal cracks on your home. That way bugs can’t get in. I live in a temperate climate, so there’s a lot of bug activity. I’ll have to keep this tip in mind.

  22. Sophia James

    I like that you mentioned that it would be best to seek a pest control company if you have no idea about the chemicals that will be used. With that in mind, I will be hiring a pest expert for the issues that we have in our home. Since I do not know about the chemicals, it would be best to hire them. It’s just that we started having termites, and we don’t know where they might be hiding since there are a lot of wooden parts in our house.

  23. Andy Brown

    Thank you for your comments regarding removing stagnant water from your yard. I don’t ever think about that until it is already crawling with pests! I will make sure to do that between visits from the exterminator.

  24. Rosie Beckett

    I have noticed some termite damage to the wooden deck in my backyard and I am thinking about calling a pest control company to eradicate the problem before it gets worse. You make a great point that you should hire a professional to handle pets because they will know the safest pesticides and tools to use that are also environmentally friendly. Also, it makes sense that you say to seal all of the exposed cracks in the exterior of your home to avoid pests entering the home and it would be great to have a professional point out those areas.

  25. Millie Hue

    Thanks for helping me understand that it would be best to seek a professional if you don’t know if it can be harmful to you and your family. I will share this information with my husband to convince him to hire a pest control company. This is because we noticed that we might have rodents already due to the droppings that we have found in the basement this evening.

  26. Penelope Smith

    I liked that you pointed out that it would be smart to seal up any cracks in your home. I hate bugs especially cockroaches and I wouldn’t want them getting into my house. It seems like I should also check if I can get my house sprayed for cockroaches.

  27. Ridley Fitzgerald

    Thanks for the advice for pest control. I’ve noticed ants getting into our kitchen a lot, so I’ll have to remember what you said. We’re pretty good at taking the garbage out, but I’m sure we can be better with that!

  28. Arya Smith

    I totally agree that it would be best to have a professional to handle pesticides and other harmful chemicals especially if we are unsure. I will definitely hire an expert because of that since I can’t be exposed to them as well. It’s due to the skin condition I have and also my asthma. It might get triggered if I do the spraying, so thanks for the tip.

  29. Laurel Larsen

    I liked that you mentioned that pest control has an ethical side to it. My house seemingly always has pests around it and part of me feels bad for wanting to get rid of them because of the chemicals that might be needed to do so. It’s great to know that there are pest control companies out there who are willing to use chemicals that aren’t harmful to the environment.

  30. Tori Raddison

    It’s smart to use sealed containers because then ants can’t get to the food. I’ve heard that they leave trails so that other ants can find the spot again. Is that how you seem to find a ton of ants in the same place?

  31. Lily Noack
