15 Pest Control Tips For San Luis Obispo County: Spring Season
Goodbye, winter. Spring is finally here! With forecasts of warm weather, pollen, and rain on the horizon, there are several kinds of pests that will be waiting to wreak havoc on your home. Fortunately, our local pest control company has spent nearly 40 years protecting residential and commercial properties from pests during winter, spring, fall, and summer.
As a family-owned business, we take pride in providing exceptional home pest control services for families and businesses in San Luis Obispo. Since 1980, our home pest control specialists have formulated several pest control tips you can use to protect your family, home, and business.
1. Receive a pest inspection
When the spring season begins, a few critters may take a liking to your property and make themselves at home. Often times, you may not notice the presence of pests in your home or business before it’s too late. If you have pests that are bothering you or destroying your property, please give us a call at 1-800-464-9446 to schedule your pest inspection.
2. Be mindful of termites
Springtime is swarming season for termites. Arguably the most destructive insect on the planet, termites can destroy the structure of your home within months before you realize that you have an infestation. Therefore, it’s best to contact a professional home pest control company, to help you locate the presence of these insects and eliminate their presence.
3. Keep ants away
Similar to termites, ants begin to multiply around this time and can cause damage to your home. Ants are excellent foragers and they are able to locate food sources from your home several feet away. While it’s best to leave food off of your floor and counters, the presence of ants can eventually become inevitable. If you are experiencing this issue, please contact your local pest control company at Brezden Pest Control to rid your home of pesky ants in the Springtime.
4. Eliminate a rodent infestation before it gets worse
Rodents like mice and rats are skilled foragers who won’t hesitate to use your home as a nest and breeding ground. Unfortunately, these rodents multiply fast and can cause an infestation that can’t be handled with glue traps and other commercial deterrents. It’s important that you call us when you notice the presence of multiple rodents in your home so we can eliminate the infestation before it gets worse.
5. Beware of hunting spiders
While spiders can contribute to your home by killing pesky insects, they are still dangerous creatures when they are close and inside of your home. In the Spring, spiders will move closer to your home in order to take advantage of the heightened insect population. Give us a call today to put an end to your spider epidemic before they enter your home.
6. Kill earwigs before they multiply
Springtime brings beautiful flowers. However, these flowers attract countless insects, particularly earwigs who feed on small sprouting plants. Around this time, earwigs are multiplying and can become a nuisance in and around your home. At Brezden Pest Control, we specialize in culling the population of earwigs in your area to make the outdoors a reduced insect zone.
7. Discourage birds from nesting around your home
Birds will naturally create their nest out of the reach of predators and that could be specific slots in your roof or around your home. It’s important to rid your home of bird nests in order to decrease the chances of property damage and larger predators. Fortunately, we can safely remove any bird nests from your home without harming any animals.
