Managing Pests Inside Your Home

Your homes are one the most important places that one should treasure and take care of. This is where you eat, sleep, rest, bath, or basically, this is where you live. It is one of your responsibilities to actually make sure that everything is clean, fixed, and organized. However, there are times when unwanted guests visit your home and sometimes they even stay there for a longer span of time. What’s worse is that they already destroy your things, eat your food, or just ruin your whole property. We are talking about pests here.

In Singapore, there are many pest control companies in Singapore, but PestBusters is Asia’s leading in terms of technology use in its operations. They have also received awards for their excellence and growth to the industry in Singapore. If you are looking for pest control services in Singapore, they are definitely the go-to.

Next, in an article by Stewart Perrie, let us an article about pest controllers who found massive nests containing thousands of wasps inside an attic.

Pest Controller Finds Massive Nests Containing ‘Thousands of Wasps’ Inside Attic

I’ve only had one nasty encounter with a wasp in my time and I can assure you they shouldn’t be messed with. Luckily my tale didn’t end like Macaulay Culkin in My Girl and I lived to tell the tale. But if I grew up in this particular house in Basingstoke, Hampshire, I might not have been so lucky.

Pest controller Shane Jones has seen his fair share of scary things, as he is from Australia, but he couldn’t believe his eyes when he climbed into this attic.

The property was housing a shitload of wasp nests. They were no ordinary wasp nests either, the smallest was the size of a football and the largest was half the size of Shane.

That was actually surprising! Imagine seeing large wasp nests in your attic. It could actually make people freak out since wasps sting and some are even poisonous. Good thing that the pest controller saw it before the worst even happened. In situations like this where we cannot handle it on our own, we really have to call for pest controllers who are equipped with the right tools and skills to handle those situations. However, before anything else, we also have to know how we should prepare for a pest control service. LISA JO LUPO will tell us more about it.

How to Prepare for Pest Control Service: Know How to Make the Most of It

Hiring a professional for pest control service does not (unfortunately) mean you can just simply call for service, then sit back and wait. Effective elimination requires a partnership between the professional pest control operators (PCOs) and the homeowner, with both taking action to get – and keep – the pests out.

Although the preparation steps required of a homeowner will be generally the same between providers, most PCOs will provide you with a specific list of preparation activities, “prep,” to be completed prior to their visit.

Because a lack of preparation could make a treatment unsafe or cause reinfestation of the entire home or building, many PCOs will not treat areas that are not prepared to specification.

This article includes links to preparation requirements of one pest control company, which can be used as general guidelines as to what you may expect from any company, and for your do-it-yourself projects. When using any pesticide yourself, always read and follow all label directions and  safe-use guidelines prior to purchase and use, including those of preparing for use). Read more here.

So in order to have a successful pest control operation, necessary preparations must be done and there should also be cooperation between the pest controller and the home owner. A partnership and dual effort is required to eliminate pest successfully.

Once our homes are pest free again, we already have to consider some indoor pest control tips specifically in the summer. Corder Pest Control will tell us about it in their article below.

Indoor Pest Control Tips for the Summer

With the summer comes vacations, family time, rest, and relaxation. But there are also some unpleasant things – like bugs. Yes, summer unfortunately brings out all types of insects, including ants, roaches, mosquitoes, and Palmetto bugs. These pests will do whatever it takes to get inside your home to find food and water, especially during times of high heat and little rain. At Corder Pest Control, we want you to enjoy your summer. Follow these tips on how to keep pesky insects out of your home:

Keep your kitchen spotless – Kitchens mean food and food attracts bugs. It’s a fairly simple equation that can have unpleasant outcomes during the summer. When you’re done eating, make sure you clean your entire kitchen of any leftover crumbs that may be lingering around. You won’t give those pests an incentive to come in uninvited. Read more here.

Cleanliness at home is really a big factor in keeping pests away. The kitchen is where food is placed that is why it is important that we keep it clean all the time. Food is also what attracts pests so we have to make sure that everything is sealed and that the sink, table, and counter tops are clean. We do not want to come home to a house infested with pests that is why as early as possible, we have to do something about it already.
