Great post from channel 5, giving some insight in to this year's pest season!
It's termite season! Do you have any idea how much damage termites can cause? Up to $5 Billion annually! They're insidious and we don't always see them, they can be deep in the wood in our homes. But not to worry. Ladybug Pest Control Services, which is fully licensed and insured, can provide you with the protection you need from these tiny wood destroying insects. We will come to your home or place of business, conduct a thorough inspection, and tell you if you have termites (or not, which is always good news!) Inspections are free, however there is a $100 fee for termite inspection paperwork associated with a VA/VHA loan. Not only does Ladybug Pest Control Services do the inspection, but we provide the treatment for termites as well. And Ladybug Pest Control Service's Termite Treatment Packages are fully warrantied for FIVE FULL YEARS. You've called the rest, now call the BEST.
Like it or not, autumn is here, and soon the temperatures outside will drop so low that most of us will want to be inside. That includes nearby mice, rats, and other rodents. If that chill in the air is too cold for you, the pests in your yard will feel the same way and see your home or business as warm, inviting, and likely to have food and water.
Of course, for both residential and commercial situations, our team at Ladybug Pest Control Services can take care of that problem for you. But we want to share some steps you can take now to help yourself.
1. Sign Up for Ongoing Pest Control Protection
Having a trained Pest Professional inspect the interior and exterior of your home to add appropriate pest equipment and offer suggestions can make all the difference. Call us for pricing and procedures for making your home pest free all year long.
2. Make Sure Cracks & Crevices are Sealed
Well before it gets too cold out or starts snowing, walk around the exterior of your property to check for gaps around pipes and vents where mice or other small creatures can enter. Have those areas sealed with caulking or other appropriate material. It’s also wise to inspect the inside of your home or commercial building. Most animals are trying to avoid the Fall and Winter’s coldest temperatures.
3. Inspect Attics, Storage Areas, Basements,
Crawlspaces, and Under Porches
Remember, if you only check around your primary living or working spaces, you are missing the places where mice, rats, roaches, and other pests are most likely to get in. After all, most pests are afraid of you, so they sneak in where everything appears to be quiet, dark, and unoccupied – attics, basements or crawlspaces, rarely-accessed storage areas, and even under porches and decks. If you’re careful to check these out-of-the-way areas, you are far less likely to have those “unwelcome guests” occupy your home or business.
4. Keep Food Stored in Air-Tight Containers – Including Pet Food!
You would be surprised to find out how much food rodents can stockpile behind your walls during the initial weeks after they enter your home. Often times, you won’t even realize you have an unwanted visitor until it’s too late and they have grown comfortable enough in your home or business to be noticed. Keep food items stored in wall cabinets or in air tight containers. De-clutter your home as much as possible, too – rodents like clutter and dark corners to hide in.
By taking the time to do these routine checks and by making small changes in your lifestyle at home or at your place of business throughout the year can save you both time and headaches once the cold weather becomes the routine again. And if you’re not sure your efforts have stopped them, or you’d rather leave it up to the pros - call Ladybug Pest Control to take care of it for you. We’re locally-owned and operated, and we’ve been serving Quincy and the Greater Boston area since 1994. We hope to hear from you soon. Happy Autumn.
