If you are a home or business owner in Sandusky, Ohio, you can trust the experience of Rose Pest Solutions for all of your pest control needs. Since 1860, we have helped property owners in Sandusky and throughout Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky and Pennsylvania get rid of their worst pest infestations, including bed bugs and termites. Although our exterminators in Sandusky are experts at what they do, there are a few things you can do around your home or business to help reduce the likelihood that pests will make your property their home.
Nothing can cause more stress to home and business owners than pests such as ants, mice, spiders, roaches or flies buzzing, scurrying and lurking about. To help keep pests out of your home or business, our Sandusky pest control pros suggest:
Always keep foods stored in containers with tightly fitting lids or in the refrigerator.
Immediately clean spills and crumbs from surfaces; don’t forget under appliances.
Repair any leaks you may have in your bathroom, kitchen or basement; many pests need moisture in order to survive and leaky plumbing provides them the perfect invitation to stick around.
If screens in your windows or doors are torn or damaged, replace or repair them; even the smallest hole makes the perfect entry for pests.
Never prop doors or windows open that do not have screens.
Organize, tidy and clean infrequently used areas such a closets and storage areas; spiders love these quite, undisturbed areas.
Sometimes even with the most diligent of efforts, pests still make their way indoors and when this happens, turning your attention outdoors can sometimes help.
The great outdoors is the natural habitat of many pests, but they are better suited for the deep woods rather than the yards of Sandusky home and business owners. The Sandusky exterminators of Rose would like to suggest a few tips to keep your outdoor area free of pests:
Keep firewood and debris stacked well away from your home or business; this will help lessen the likelihood that termites, carpenter ants, rodents and spiders will make their way indoors.
Landscape with a 12” perimeter of crushed rock around your property; mice do not like uneven terrain.
Keep trees and shrubs cut back away from your buildings; this eliminates any potential paths for pests to reach your home.
Keep outdoor trash receptacles covered securely.
Keep the lawn trimmed frequently around your property to help keep the number of ticks down.
Seal any cracks and crevices around utility wires and plumbing to seal out potential invaders.
Keep pet food and bird feeders indoors at night.
Reduce all areas of standing, stagnant water around your property; water is the breeding ground for blood sucking mosquitoes.
Even with all of your best attempts to keep pests out on your own, they still manage to find their way inside your home or driving away your customers trying to get inside your store, it is time to call in the pros.
