Working from Home? Here's How To Deal With Coworking Critters.

Thursday, March 4, 2021

Spiders, ants, cockroaches, and centipedes have always been known to hang around people’s homes – and often go unnoticed if someone isn’t paying close attention. In fact, these critters – along with traditional overwintering pests like Asian lady beetles, boxelder bugs, cluster flies, and stink bugs – have been some of our closest co-workers for a long time.

“A centipede or spider someone spots in their home office, bathroom, or kitchen might have gone unnoticed a year ago,” said Mark “Shep” Sheperdigian, board-certified entomologist and vice president of technical services for Rose Pest Solutions. “As people continue to work remotely and spend more time at home, there’s a higher chance of them noticing a pest or insect moving in and making themselves comfortable – which leads to them giving us a call.” 

Rose Pest Solutions offers a variety of services to residential clients who want to remove pests that have hunkered down in their homes. The Home Service Program uses science-based techniques to exclude pests safely and effectively from getting into someone’s home in the first place. Technicians are trained to inspect, access, and develop a safe, cost-effective approach that caters to each client’s home by providing: 

  • Three pre-scheduled interior and exterior services over a 12-month period; 
  • Additional visits, if needed, free of charge; 
  • Visual interior and exterior inspection of the accessible areas; 
  • A written report of findings and recommended actions; 
  • Suggestions and recommendations for eliminating future pest problems in and around a client’s home, and; 
  • Interior and exterior preventative services for the home 

Rose technicians and entomologists remind clients that the most cost-efficient form of pest control is prevention. 

“Many pest problems can be reduced or even eliminated if homeowners properly inspect and pest-proof their property,” added Sheperdigian. 

DIY treatments, including demonstrations and tips, common areas to seal in order to keep out pests and insects, and the household items used to seal up the exterior openings around a property can be found here.
