If you think that you were done with bugs in the house, guess again! You might find about 20 bugs in November. Thus, it's important that you keep your pest control regiment up, even in the cooler months. Clint Miller Exterminating will provide pest control in November for all of these bugs.
Whether you are afraid of bugs or fascinated by them, they definitely don't belong in your home. Bees, scorpions and wasps have painful stings and could cause medical issues if you are allergic to them. Mosquitoes, fleas and ticks could carry diseases that they transport to you or your pets. Some, like flies, are just annoying. Many, such as cockroaches, are just unsanitary.
Now is the time that bugs are going to be looking for a warm place to hole up for the winter. And your house is the perfect spot. It provides light and warmth. It even provides water and food. Bugs will look for anywhere that is warm, including hollow tree stumps, old burrows, piles of rocks or wood or even under loose bark. If you have loose siding on your home, they'll head for that. Cracks in the foundation and exterior walls also provide a great hiding place for bugs to stay warm.
Spring is the time for flowers, nice weather, working on your landscaping and bugs, including termites. The most common termites are subterranean, and are difficult to find. Look for mud tubes and wings for signs of termites. Mud tubes are generally found on the foundation. Since the termites don't walk on the ground, this is how they get from their den to their food source – your house.
Even if you are the cleanest person on earth, you're going to have bugs in your house. And they will destroy the house. North Carolina State University researchers found 579 different species of bugs in 50 homes. They scoured a total of 554 rooms, and of those, only five rooms had no detectable signs of arthropods. You may find bugs in fiberglass insulation, bugs that eat clothes in your home, and even bugs that eat wood rather than termites.
If you notice signs of pests in your home, whether they are cockroaches, mice, spiders or other pests, you'll need to get the problem under control. However, once you notice these critters, there may already be an infestation, especially if it's cockroaches. Roaches are nocturnal, so if you see them during the daytime, their hiding places are overcrowded or they are running out of food and water.
Sometimes it seems that every time you turn around, there's a fly, mosquito or some other bug in your home. Instead of banging your head on the wall because you're tired of these little critters sharing your home, bug proof your home, and then give Clint Miller Exterminating a call to get any bugs out that may have been inside when you started this project.
When you want to get rid of cockroaches, you should contact an exterminator, such as Clint Miller Exterminating. However, to prevent cockroach infestation again, you'll have to take several steps – some daily, some monthly and some every 60 to 90 days.
