Common Spring Invaders In Pasadena

Spring is a welcomed time here in Pasadena for people and pests alike. For people, it is a time for warm sun rays, budding trees, and planting in gardens. For pests, it is a great time to warm up and find food by invading local homes. Common pests that invade homes in the spring include fleas, ticks, spiders, pavement ants, rats, mice, cockroaches, and flies. Sometimes pests invade as a package deal. This is the case when rats and mice carry fleas and ticks indoors. The one thing you should know about these different types of pests is that they are all preventable. After we talk about the problems invasive species cause, we are going to share some simple prevention tips to protect your home.

All The Issues Pest Infestations Can Cause In Your Home

Having pests inside your home is not fun. On a base level, most invasive species are annoying. Insects can swarm around homeowners or become a nuisance in the kitchen, rodents make unsettling noises at all hours of the night and leave behind unpleasant odors, and crickets chirp loudly while people are trying to sleep. These are not, however, the only problems caused by pests. Many local invaders are also dangerous or destructive. Pests like cockroaches and rodents spread disease. Wasps and bees sting people. Spiders have venomous bites. Termites chew holes through walls. Bed bugs bite people while they are asleep. We could go on. Assess your risk by bringing in our team. We will inspect your home and help you better understand the pest pressures you are facing and the problems they cause.

Six Natural And Effective Springtime Pest Prevention Tips

If you want to avoid a pest infestation in Pasadena, you need to do one of two things. Either invest in year-round quality pest control or implement some prevention tips. Here are six natural and effective springtime prevention tips to start with:

  1. Thoroughly clean your home and do your best to address areas of clutter.
  2. Wipe up moisture spills and clean food messes as they occur.
  3. Seal your home’s exterior foundation using a caulking gun or liquid cement.
  4. Address moisture issues like leaky pipes and damaged gutters.
  5. Make sure your trash cans are all equipped with tight-fitting lids.
  6. Keep unscreened windows and doors closed as much as possible.

"I had a fantastic experience with Accutech!  As a real estate agent it is not always easy to find great vendor partners so when you do they must be recognized and praised!  Everyone on the team is a delight to work with especially the people in the office who do the billing and document shipping.  I would highly encourage my real estate peers to use Accutech for their residential termite needs."

"I live in a row house and both my neighbors have rat problems. Thankfully they are not in the house. Accutech responded very quickly to my request to come out and check my house for entrance points and put out baits to give me piece of mind. They are great to work with and always go that extra mile."
