Preventing Pests with Regular Maintenance
Canada is no stranger to pests of all kinds throughout the year. While harsh weather might deter some common ones, it’s also true that pests can seek shelter in your home or business and continue to thrive year-round. Read on to discover how a regular pest maintenance schedule can keep your home or office pest-free. If you witness any of these pests in your home, contact an experienced pest removal company as this is always a job best left to the pros.
How often should I treat my home?
We suggest performing a routine pest treatment every 3 months in your home. Pests such as ants, roaches, spiders, and fleas can return after an initial treatment wears off. Treating your home every 3 months will ensure these pests stay away.
What pests are problematic during which season?
It can be difficult to know which pests you’re trying to prevent and exterminate depending on the time of year. Let’s break down some active seasons for common pests:
Winter: Spiders, rodents and silverfish
Spring: Ants, fleas, earwigs and spiders
Summer: Ants, fleas, earwigs, spiders and drywood termites
Fall: Spiders, termites, earwigs, rodents, ants and fleas
How does regular maintenance prevent pests?
Regular maintenance ensures the treatments in your home are potent and that pests are continuously warded off or killed. If you don’t see pests, it doesn’t mean your pest issue is gone, it simply means the treatments are effective.
There will always be more pests trying to find a way into your home so pest prevention will always be required in order to keep your home pest-free. Once people stop pest control, the defenses that were built up begin to break down over time, exposing the house to similar pest vulnerabilities as before.
