It’s raining, it’s pouring… the bugs are exploring!
You may notice an invasion of pests like ants, roaches, and spiders into your home after a rainy day. Why? In most cases, their shelter is compromised, forcing the bugs out of hiding in search of a drier refuge.
The best way to avoid this is with proactive pest control. Make your home less appealing to pests and restrict access by keeping shrubbery and trees trimmed and away from your home’s exterior, take out garbage daily, clean up spills, don’t leave pet food out, de-clutter, and seal off any entry points. You can also ask your local exterminator to apply preventative pest control products, usually in granular form, around your home’s perimeter. This helps to limit the number of pests in close proximity to your home and act as a barrier.
Another side effect of lots of rain: mosquitoes. Once the weather warms up, mosquitoes will be out in full-force. Help to reduce mosquito bites by eliminating sources of standing water that may have accumulated during heavy rainfall. You can also get rid of mosquitoes with monthly treatments during mosquito season targeting mosquito breeding and resting sites in your yard.
Green Pest Control is a way of eliminating pests while having the lowest environmental impact possible. There are many “green” options to traditional pest control methods that use harmful chemicals. Our Green Pest Control, NorPest Green, is a program that uses the most up to date technology and products for getting rid of pests.
Times have changed and people are concerned about the health of their homes, children, and pets…and we couldn’t agree more. As stated above, NorPest Green gets rid of pests while maintaining the lowest environmental impact possible. The active ingredients in our products are derived from flowers, plants, and natural elements from the Earth…no harsh chemicals and is still just as effective as traditional pest control methods.
We also use the 5 step IPM process (integrated pest management) which is “an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.”
