It’s hurricane season here in Florida and many residents are taking precautions to protect their homes from being damaged. All this talk of hurricane destruction got us thinking at McCall Service, what about the destruction caused by pest infestations like termites and rodents? We may not be able to fix damages from any strong storms, but no matter how severe your pest infestation is, we can fix that! And even better, we can help you to prevent those damages from ever occurring.
Of course it is best to protect your home from termite damage as well as problems caused by other insects and rodents in Northern Florida before they have a chance to get inside and cause damage. So to help homeowners pest-proof their home, here are some great tips:
Seal off any exterior cracks, holes, or crevices to prevent pests from getting inside.
If you are keeping windows open then make sure that the screens are secured and they contain no holes or tears that a small pest could squeeze through.
Trim back bushes and shrubs so they do not touch the exterior of the home. This will prevent pests from hiding out near the home and gaining easier access to the inside.
Take the trash out on a regular basis and make sure it is stored in trash bins with lids that lock closed to keep pests out.
Keep the kitchen clean and sanitized and always store open food in airtight containers.
Remove sticks, twigs, and other wood sources from the property to prevent termite colonies from forming and spreading to areas close to your home.
Hopefully these tips will prevent pests and the trouble they cause but keep in mind that sometimes it is not enough to control infestations. Pests are sneaky and often times they cause damage without us even knowing. So for instances when termites, rodents, or other destructive pests have found their way inside, make sure to call in the FL pest control pros!
