Join us in celebrating National Pest Management Month at McCall Service! For over 30 years now the National Pest Management Association has designated April as the month to bring public awareness to the threats of home pest infestations. Not only are Florida pests a major nuisance and tough to get rid of, some spread diseases and cause illness while others can damage structures and personal belongings. No matter what the pest, we can all agree that they are not welcome in our homes.

So how can you help us celebrate National Pest Management Month? We have comprised a list of the top pest prevention tips for homeowners to help keep those pesky visitors away. Commit to following these tips and share them with your friends and family so that you can all enjoy a pest free, healthy home.  

  1. Keep open food sealed in containers with tight fitting lids.

  2. Deep clean the kitchen appliances including the refrigerator and the stove to remove built up grease and other food debris.

  3. Wipe down and sanitize your food surfaces daily to remove crumbs that pest are attracted to and to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria.

  4. Clear your yard of moist, decaying wood to keep termites and carpenter ants away.

  5. Trim back shrubs and bushes so they are not touching the side of your home.

  6. Redirect water away from your property to avoid moist soil which creates ideal conditions for any pests to live and breed.
