Keeping Springtime Pests Out Of Your Home

With each new season, new animal pests try to make their way into your home. This is especially true in the spring, when warmer weather unearths pests that have been dormant all winter long. It is best to try to prevent pest outbreaks from happening in the first place, but if you do notice bugs, mice and other pests inside your home, contact a pest control Phoenix company to help you. Professional entomologists have the training and tools necessary to make your home pest-free as soon as possible.

Some of the pests that you see more regularly in the spring include pavement and carpenter ants, the carpet beetle, the oriental cockroach, the cluster fly, the wolf, house and yellow sac spider and mice. What all of these animals have in common is that they come into your home on their own accord. Fleas are one type of animal that need a host to feast on in order to get into your home. If you own a cat or dog that frequently goes outside, be sure your pet has a flea collar to prevent infestation within your home. This also helps to prevent your pet from the extreme discomfort and itching that occurs when fleas get into their fur.

The most important thing you can do to keep tiny pests such as ants and beetles out of your home is to make sure that all cracks on the exterior of your home are sealed. You should also insure that all vents coming into your basement are sealed. Since the entrance points for insects can be quite small, you need to go around the exterior of your home very carefully and seal every opening that you see. This includes areas where mice may be able to burrow underground and into your home.
