Pest control can help you deal with pests that threaten your health and safety or damage your property. It can also help prevent pests from coming into your home in the first place.
Pests are a common problem in homes and Cayce Exterminating Company, Inc. because of their ability to carry disease, parasites, and other harmful germs and viruses that can spread to people, animals, and buildings. They can also cause structural damage to buildings and other items in your home, such as flooring.
Step 2: Take steps to prevent infestations
In order to keep pests out of your home, it’s important to inspect the outside of your home for cracks and crevices where they could enter. This includes checking your foundation, loose siding, and around utility lines (including pipes and electric wiring).
If you notice any openings, seal them to avoid pests entering your home. You can use copper mesh, coarse steel wool, or sheet metal to patch openings.
Eco-Friendly Pest Control: Finding Companies That Use Safe and Sustainable Practices
Preventing pests is the best way to keep them out of your home, and it’s often easier than fighting them once they’re inside. It’s also a good idea to use pest-resistant materials for doors, windows, and outdoor furniture.
In agriculture and other areas where pests can affect crops, biological controls include the use of bacteria to kill grubs or insect larvae, or the introduction of nematodes, small, microscopic eel-like roundworms that feed on soil insects. Biological approaches can be extremely effective and are generally low cost and easy to manage.
