The best thing you can do is to be proactive about keeping pests out of your home. Do an inspection of your home. Look for cracks in the foundations, windows, doors, and floors. Check for torn screens on windows and doors. Check for holes in the roof under the eaves, or holes in the walls. Clean your home and put food away in airtight containers. There’s nothing that keeps pests out better than having no food and water and uninviting surrounding.
That said, the same things that we humans find to be inviting, are also inviting to many bugs. For example, bedbugs are interested in the folds of blankets and bedding, they travel into your home in your luggage. They hide away behind picture frames on the walls. So it’s important to know when to call your pest control experts in Cleveland. Equally important is not just preventing pests, but knowing when they have found their way into your home. Often they are going to manage to keep their presence hidden from you for a long time. Don’t let the problem fester and grow in
your walls, know how to spot them before they make a devastating impact.
Cleveland Pest Control Tips
• Bedbugs can be identified less by siting them and more by what they leave behind. You’re looking for black spots along the seams of mattresses and behind pillow tags, as well as reddish spots on your sheets. Bedbugs when collected in high enough numbers give off a sickly sweet smell.
• Termites are also clever in their ability to remain unnoticed. They aren’t looking for what most other bugs seek, they want a place with a good moist wood. Unless their infestation really explodes, they aren’t going to be outside of your walls very often. If you suspect you have them, try tapping on the wood with a knife, it will sound hollow if they have eaten out your walls. Pull back suspicious wood, look for tunnels carved into it, especially outside.
• Rats are also clever, they are looking for places with warm dark corners. Sometimes the best thing to do is believe that they really can come to your home even if your home is ‘too new’ for rats. If you have pets, pay attention to them, if they begin to freak out from unseen things, it may be them hearing the animals in the walls. If you find droppings, or the baseboards are gnawed on and streaked with brown then you probably have rats.
Prevention is important, but more important is to know when to call the professionals in Cleveland pest control and let them take care of the infestations.
