Ongoing Pest Control In Souderton Is Best

At Moyer Pest Control, we've learned that the best kind of pest control is proactive pest maintenance. Natural control solutions, such as sealing gaps, cracks, and holes, have a long-lasting impact on almost all the pests listed above. We use these methods first:

If more control is needed, our on-staff experts select trusted products to target and control the pests. An example of this would be the application of liquid termiticides or the installation of a termite baiting system. These products use worker termites against the colony that sent them. There is no better way to protect property from termites than to have one of these products installed and maintained by a professional.

When you have ongoing pest control for your home, your proactive pest maintenance comes in many forms. Here are just a few examples:

  • Your technician will remove spiders webs. When this is done, not only does it make your home more beautiful, it has the potential to remove hundreds of spiders eggs.

  • Your technician will remove wasps nests. This prevents wasps from surprising you when you're tending to your landscaping, mowing your lawn, or just relaxing by your pool.

  • Your technician will apply a residual that addresses crawling pests that can get into your home through tiny entry points. This application can be put around sensitive zones, such as the area you put your trash receptacles.

  • Targeted areas can be treated with a mist application to address mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. This prevents reproduction and development near your home.

  • Rodent populations can be culled with tamper-resistant traps strategically placed around your home.

Pest Prevention Tips For Souderton Homeowners

When you invest in a residential pest control plan for your home, you'll have the best protection possible. But this protection isn't complete on its own. There are a few things you can, and should, do to guard your health and property against pests. Here are a few examples:

  • Pantry pests can come in from the outside but, more often than not, they hitchhike into your home. One of the best ways to prevent a pantry pest infestation is to store your pantry food items in sealed containers. This will allow you to examine the food as you transfer it, see any pest activity in your food before you eat it, and prevent pantry pests from spreading between packages.

  • Your door and window screens are very important. You should routinely check them and fix any holes you find. It is also important to make sure there are no gaps between your screens and your window or door frames.

  • Perimeter moisture can increase pest issues. It is a very good idea to have your gutters cleaned routinely. This will make it so that rainwater runs down and away from your home.

  • Many pests are drawn to the scent of garbage. Proper trash management is essential. Make sure your garbage is bagged. This keeps the smell of the garbage somewhat contained. Store the bags in covered containers. Clean your containers if they start to have an odor.

  • Many insects are attracted to white light. If you have white lights in your entryways, insects can fly right into your home when you open the door. If you replace white lights with yellow lights, you reduce this form of pest entry. Why? Because insects can't detect yellow light.
