We like to eliminate and exclude any reason for mice and rats from our home areas. Construction zones make it a bit harder to ensure that rats and mice are nowhere to be seen, as they hide among the small areas. Some ways to improve your home’s exterior perimeter is by closing holes, setting traps and sealing all vents with a wire screen.
Being friendly with your neighbor will pay off, as you guys chat and decide on keeping your garbage areas and overall exterior of your home clean. Construction is noisy enough, try not to add squeaky mice or rats to the mix, by keeping your home’s exterior perimeter clean. When we work together as a community, rodents seem to be less rampant.
As the summer’s heat burns us up, creepy crawlies become more present. They start off relaxing and enjoying the heat, like we do. But then, when it seems too hot to bare, they land themselves in between our couch cushions, bed springs or in the crevices of the kitchen counter. Upon seeing a bug, trying to identify it is not so easy. Bedbugs, water bugs, or roaches have similar looks but vary in size and shape and body. They find comfort in our homes, moving out of the hot outdoors and into the interior of our homes. To determine between the three insects, one should try to identify where the source of the pests starts. Just grabbing a shoe and swatting the pests away doesn’t work. Just look at the little pests, and figure out their size. If you swat one away and within a few minutes another bug appears, it’s that time, to call the bug killers, and let the exterminator have a look at the creatures.
Insects crawling through the cushions of your couch? Well, no more. There are a few home remedies one can take to ensure less pests. In order to really eliminate the problem, extermination comes into play. For now, you are stuck at home with creepy-crawling bugs and you want to eat in peace, not having uninvited guests sit with you at your dinner table.
One of the ways to prepare your home is to empty out the cabinets or drawers and spray down the area with a certain chemical that will slow down the infestation. The next step would be to wipe the countertops, sinks, shower and ensure that it is dry. Taking out the garbage daily and cleaning up is vital when you want to remove all pests. Once your home/business is clean, everything is in garbage bags, or wrapped up properly, smile and sit on your pest free couch.
If a problem still arises after you have tried the home methods, you can go ahead and call your local exterminator and schedule an appointment for possible treatment.
Too often is a building or structure inhabited with mice or rodents that have free rent in this never-ending value appreciating city that we live in. They become our neighbors, roommates, they even partake in our dinner leftovers on our dime. This can be challenging and frustrating whether it's a residential building or a public space. Luckily, they are not protected by rent control or any other landlord-tenant privilege. These issues can be resolved within weeks if the right professionals are given the opportunity.
Squash’s goal is to give our space a healthy, pest free environment. We place mouse traps or pads and have other tools to ensure that the safety of personal space is taken seriously. Mice no longer should have a safe haven within the walls of our communities, when our technicians show up to exterminate.
