Pest Prevention Tips
1. Use Year-Round Maintenance
- Shield 365 is our 12 month pest & turf program designed to keep your family safe from disease carrying insects and help make your lawn the envy of the neighborhood. Each individual package allows a homeowner to choose multiple exterior services that protect the property from dangerous pests as well as protect their lawn from unwanted weeds or an unsightly appearance. Our customers can pick and choose which plan they want as well as any additional "add-on" services.
2. Dispose of Waste Properly
- Follow proper cleaning and food storage processes.
- Keep trash bins closed tightly and make sure to dump them consistently. Store pet food in a sealed container inside.
- Consider adding a fence around your garden, building raised beds, or constructing a cover.
3. Control Moisture
- Even a small pool of water or leaking pipe can provide enough water to attract springtime pests. High humidity aids egg production in many pests. Keep your home well-ventilated and dry, especially areas like basements, attics, and crawl spaces.
4. Properly seal openings
- Use weatherproof caulk for any gaps and cracks in order to seal out any possible pests that could be crawling through.
- If you notice any pests or signs of pests, such as rotted wood, contact a licensed pest professional at Fight the Bite right away.
5. Contact Fight the Bite as soon as you notice a Pest
- Some pests, like bed bugs and termites, can cause costly damages. If you notice signs of bed bugs or termites, you should call a pest professional immediately so they can eliminate the infestation before it gets worse. For pests like ants, roaches, spiders, silverfish, and others, call a pest professional when you notice high numbers entering your home or business. Our pest pros can identify how pests are entering into your space and provide effective solutions to prevent more from entering.
