There are some people that think if they have a nice clean home there is no way they need pest control. The problem is that pests are not going to go out of their way to skip a house just because it is clean. The cleanest house is still a great place for many pests to stop and find a bite to eat or a place to nest and live. If you have furniture in your home or food in your home you are open to having a pest problem. Although there are homes that are left a mess with food easily accessible to pests they are not the only ones that have pest infestations. If you have a great house keeper and a really clean home you still need to hire a professional to keep your pest control needs in check. Stewart Termite & Pest Control outlines why pests invade even clean homes and what you can do about it.
Why Do I Have Roaches & Pests if My House is Clean?
If you think your home is too clean to have a pest problem think again. Pest are after many different things such as food, water and shelter. They can usually find some type of food and water source outside somewhere but shelter is a bigger problem. When they find a place that has a climate that is more conducive to their living style you can bet they will set up shop. That means that the first thing they are really looking for is a way out of the elements. That means that even the cleanest house with the least amount of crumbs is a great start. This is not to say that you should not try and clean to keep out pests because it does help when dealing with long term pests and large infestations. When a pest is looking to set up shop and stay for a while they are still going to look for the other two parts which is food and water. A mouse may have great access to your nice clean house but if the food is limited it might not stay too long. The same goes for cockroaches and other pests that are looking for a climate change. A clean home is a great start when preventing pests but it is by far not the only thing that needs to be done.
How Do You Get Rid of Pest Infestations?
If you have a clean house or even a messy house the process to treat any kind of pest infestation is really about the same. The clean house has step one done and that is to eliminate the access to food and water. The messy house may have to start there but the next step is to have the home inspected by a professional pest control company and a treatment plan set up. You don’t want to treat the problem then stop using the service but continue to help with prevention. The easiest way to deal with pests is to not have an infestation in the first place.
