The initial pest control is carried out and thereafter you have to address the underlying causes and conditions that allow pests to thrive. Your Eagle Eye Pest Control technician will be able to inspect your property, ask you about any pests or evidence of pests that you’ve observed, monitor for pest activity, identify any pests found, and then come up with a plan and make recommendations that are specific to where you live.
A good home pest management program starts with a couple of basic principles – exclusion, or blocking pests from entering your home, and sanitation, or keeping your spaces clean and free of accessible food and water for pests. Addressing these two principles – exclusion and sanitation – should eliminate many of the causes and conditions for chronic pest management problems where you live.
The first thing to remember about almost all insect or rodent pests is that they need three things – food, water and shelter, or a comfortable place to live and breed – to thrive. If your home is providing pests with those three things, then the likelihood of them setting up housekeeping in your living space is increased. On the other hand, if you deny them food, water and shelter, chances are those pests will choose somewhere else to breed and infest.
Below, we’ve listed some pest management control steps you can take to make your home less friendly to pests.
Interior of home:
- Keep your place clean, especially areas where you prepare and eat food. Wipe down countertops, sweep floors, vacuum carpets regularly, and reduce clutter;
- Clean up any crumbs or grease from meals when you’re done cooking or eating. Don’t leave food out in the open;
- Store grains, cereals and other bulk items in airtight containers, like glass jars, where pests can’t get at your food. Pests will chew through plastic, paper and cardboard easily. This also applies to pet food;
- Inspect incoming groceries and other goods to make sure you don’t have any hitchhiking pests;
- Put garbage, trash and recyclables in closed containers, and empty those containers frequently;
- Weather-strip doors and windows to eliminate spaces where pests can enter, and seal areas around those doors and windows;
- Repair screens on windows and doors, or consider installing screens if you don’t have them;
- Close any entry points for pests around doors, windows, inlets and places where wires or pipes enter from outside;
- Repair any leaky taps or drains;
- Make sure your ceiling spaces, crawl spaces are clean, well ventilated and dry, and seal any cracks in basement walls or the foundation;
- Keep your garage door closed, to deter pests from entering and hanging out, and keep your garage clean, so that pests won’t set up housekeeping there.
Exterior of home:
- Seal any entry points where pests can gain access inside. Remember that a rat only needs a 1,5 centimetre hole, a mouse needs a 1 centimetreh hole, and an insect or spider needs a lot less. Pay attention to the fit on doors, windows, and places where wires or pipes enter;
- Make sure that any bins are sealed with lids;
- Store firewood away from your home;
- Trim back trees and bushes so that there are at least 24 centimetres of clearance between them and your home;
- Clean gutters around roof edges, so that pests won’t breed in trapped water there, and make sure the gutter spouts are unclogged, and that they drain away from your home;
- If possible, install a one metre wide perimeter of gravel around your home to deter pests;
- Don’t leave pet food out. Clean your pet’s dish after it has eaten. Pet food, left out, is pest food – inside your home or outside
