Common Household Pests

As the weather changes, many homeowners see pest activity around their home pick up.  Our clients see creepy crawlers appear in the corners of rooms, on their ceilings or in other nooks and crannies of their homes. Pest control professionals call them “occasional invaders.”  These occasional invaders enter our homes because the weather outside becomes too hostile for them to survive.  These pests are a nuisance because they are not equipped to live for long periods of time indoors and can be an unpleasant surprise for homeowners.

 

Something we may not think about is that these pests don’t want to be inside your home any more than you don’t want them there!  These specific insects existed in their natural habitats long before our neighborhoods were built, our roads appeared and the town we live in was formed.  The buggers are looking for one thing – survival!

 

Noosa Pest is passionate about our clients taking common sense measures to keep these pests at bay before using other means to reduce their presence.   Vacuum or seal up possible entry points, screen windows, and keep garage doors closed to help prevent their entry.  Exhaust all non-chemical means of control before applying insecticides or having a pest company perform services at your home.
