It is always best to call an exterminator when bugs, insects, and rodents are already in your home, but you can also use preventative measures to make sure that they never get in your house in the first place. To help you make sure your property stays bug-free, the Carlsbad, NM, expert exterminators from Bug Pros Pest Control have provided these tips for keeping away all kinds of crawling annoyances.
Tips for keeping bugs out of your home:
- Seal The Cracks In Your House: Even tiny openings provide plenty of opportunities for rodents and insects to burrow their way in and make themselves right at home. You can either seal up the cracks yourself with over-the-counter sealant bought at your local hardware store or hire a professional contractor.
- Spray A Mix Of Insecticide On The Likely Entry Points: Using an insecticide like borax and mixing it with a cup of sugar water to spray over your doors and windows will attract any bugs that are trying to get in and then kill them quickly. Do this every couple weeks or so in the warmer months and you won’t have to worry about insects at all. If you're battling against stubborn reoccurring infestations, Bug Pro’s Pest Control offers preventative pest control services with professional-grade products that are more concentrated and effective than what you can buy at the store.
- Bait Traps Are Another Option: Bait traps are most commonly used for rats and mice, but they can also be effective for termite and ant control. They work by luring in the pest and then killing them with poison so that they can be disposed of. Cheap and efficient, you will be able to find them at just about any grocery store or hardware shop.
Some infestations are too advanced for over-the-counter products to effectively resolve all of your pest control issues. If this is the case, you need the professional exterminators from Bug Pros Pest Control in Carlsbad, NM.
