Yuck Bugs? Exterminators Knock ´Em Dead!!!

Got creepy crawlies? According to the National Pest Control Association, cockroaches, mice, rats, termites, carpenter ants, ants, fleas, ticks, spiders, and silver fish are the most common household pests.

You are NOT alone. Almost every house in America has had at least one of these pests take up residence in the last year. You can try managing this yourself with do-it-yourself products, but they are not as effective as the service offered by professional exterminators.

Extermination is a highly specialized business and because exterminators work with toxic materials, they are also highly regulated. Of the various home maintenance specialties, you need to make it a top priority to ensure that your chosen exterminator is licensed and insured to practice in your state. His membership in national or regional pest control associations is a good indicator that he is in step with current technologies and developments in his industry. Your exterminator should carry liability insurance to cover any potential damage to your property or family.

Keep pests out

The following table provides tips to prevent bugs from getting a foothold.




Termites They love wet wood. Clear the perimeter of your house, garage, and sheds of any wood. Store lumber where it can be kept dry as well as wood for stoves. Make sure gutters are clear and fix leaking pipes and roofs as soon as you see a problem.
Rodents Take out the garbage every day! Don´t allow piles of stuff to accumulate. Keep entry points into your home clear and clean, including ducts, vents, and chimneys.
Cockroaches Once you have roaches, it´s hard to get rid of them without hiring a professional. However, once you have eliminated them, you can keep them from coming back by getting rid of their favorite habitats, which are dark, damp, and full of food.

  • Clean, clean, clean. Wash dishes and take out the garbage every day.
  • Never leave food out.
  • Clean spills when they occur and check under sinks and appliances for spills that might attract roaches.
  • Ensure good ventilation to facilitate dry conditions.
  • Cover all holes with screens and seal around pipes where they come through the floor, walls, or ceiling, especially in the kitchen, bath, and laundry rooms.
  • Store pet foods in covered containers. Avoid leaving dirty pet dishes where they will attract roaches.

Cockroaches are not picky eaters—they´ve been known to dine on such delicacies as book bindings and the glue on grocery sacks.
