Pest Control Exterminator MN
With another Minnesota winter on our heels, many homeowners are busy getting their homes ready. But the one thing that commonly gets overlooked is a thorough pest inspection. Come winter, these uninvited guests come in all shapes, sizes, and species. From bugs to bats, insects and wild animals alike try to avoid the cold by seeking a nice warm place to settle down, also called “overwintering,” and your home is just as good as any to hang out for the season.
Keep Your Home Pest Free This Winter!
Ants, Spiders, Box elder bugs, Cockroaches, Crickets, Wasps, Mice & Rodents, etc. all enter our homes, buildings and properties in search of food, warmth and security. It is impossible to keep them out! But the rule of thumb is: when you start to notice them or signs of their presence, you have a problem and need to take action. The more you can do to prevent them from entering your home during fall, the fewer you will deal with later.
However, homeowners can help prevent infestation troubles by taking a proactive approach in eliminating entryways into the home.
To prevent pests from infesting your home this winter, here are some tips:
- Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the home
- Inspect wires, insulation and walls for gnaw marks, which may indicate a rodent infestation
- Store boxes off of the floor to prevent rodents from residing in undisturbed areas
- Keep branches and shrubbery trimmed away from the home
- Store firewood at least 20 feet from the home and five feet off the ground
If you suspect an infestation, contact a Minnesota pest control exterminator. The sooner, the better! What you may not realize is that the ones you is usually just the tip of the iceberg compared to the number you may actually have. An infestation by these pests can cause serious health and property issues if not properly dealt with in a timely manner.
