How to Keep Pests Out of Your Home or Office

Remove sources of food, water and shelter.  Store food in sealed plastic or glass containers. Garbage containing food scraps should be placed in tightly covered trash cans. Remove garbage regularly from your home.  Fix leaky plumbing and don’t let water accumulate anywhere in the home.  Don’t leave pet food and water out overnight.  Get rid of things like stacks of newspapers, magazines, or cardboard.  These things make it easy for pest to hide.  Close off places like cracks and crevices around cabinets or baseboards.  Leaving these open will invite pest into your home or office. Use chalk to seal the openings.  Cover holes with wire mess and use steel wool to fill spaces around pipes. Now your ready to start applying pesticides.

What types of Pesticides

After you have taken the steps to keeping the pests out use bait boxes as the first line of defense against insects & rodents.  These bait boxes are very effective and can be used with low risk exposure to pesticide.  Pesticides that are not used in bait traps should be used in targeted locations and not sprayed over the whole room. Use fogging devices only when absolutely necessary.  Using premixed pesticides are quick and easy.
