Identifying the Problem
The first step in successful home pest control for your St. Louis home is identifying the type of pest with which you are dealing. Some pests leave obvious signs such as droppings or shed skin or wings. Others, such as termites and carpenter ants, leave debris that looks like sawdust.
Termites may go undetected for years while others such as common house spiders live right out in the open. Our professional pest control technicians have the knowledge and experience to identify the pests in your home.
Tips to Prevent Pests Around Your House
Making your house unattractive and inhospitable to pests is key in preventing infestations and re-infestations.
- Fix any water leaks and replace damaged wood.
- Seal cracks around the windows, doors and foundation of your home so pests cannot gain access to it.
- Remove junk piles, old wood and clutter from in and around your home, as these piles provide food and homes for all sorts of pests.
- Keep pet and human food in sealed containers and clean up garden and fruit tree debris.
