Comprehensive Pest Prevention For Your Colorado Springs Property
Pests are a big problem here in the Colorado Springs area. Some property owners are not dealing with active infestations. If this is the case with you, we highly recommend considering the benefits of natural prevention strategies. These strategies involve steps that home and business owners can take on their own to greatly reduce their chances of finding invasive insects, rodents, and other common pests inside their homes and businesses. To make sure you have everything you need to deter different types of pests in Colorado Springs, here are some tips and tricks to start with.
Safely Store Water & Food:
Pests need to eat to survive. Storing food away in air-tight containers or inside the refrigerator will help reduce opportunities for pests to find things to eat inside your home or business. Make sure you also store pet food in a way that even the smallest insects cannot gain access to it.
Eliminate Harborage Opportunities:
Eliminate shelters created by pests inside or around your home or business. Before you do this, however, make sure these pests don't pose a threat. For example, you should leave rodent nests alone, as dealing with these pests can lead to harm.
A leaky pipe or faucet is all a pest needs to stay hydrated. Search for leaks around your home or business and repair any you find.
Reduce Access To Garbage:
Your garbage can is a buffet for many common pests. Make sure your bins have tight-fitting lids and clean off grease and grime buildup as the receptacles get dirty.
A cluttered building offers pests many opportunities to find shelter. Do your best to reduce clutter wherever possible and organize storage areas to minimize potential hiding spots for pests.
Repair Damage To Your Building's Exterior:
Most pests get indoors through gaps, cracks, and other damage to exterior walls, windows, and doors. Seal as many of these entry points as possible.
It is good to note that DIY pest prevention tips will only get you so far. They will also have little to no effect on existing infestations. To deal with an active pest problem or to guarantee that invasive species do not have easy access to your home or business, you need professional home pest control services.
Everything You Need To Know About Our Pest Control
Now that you have more information about preventing pests on your own let's talk about what you need to deal with active infestations inside your home or business. At High Country Pest Control, we consider a few things before starting treatments, including what pests you are dealing with, what steps are required to address your problem, and the effect of products we need to use. You will need to consider these things as well. If you plan to use chemical-based treatments, keep children and pets away from treated areas. Ingesting these products can result in sickness. If you prefer bait and traps, place them in areas of dense pest activity. For rodents, only use snap traps and bait them with peanut butter to have the highest chance of a catch. Just like with chemical sprays, do not allow children or pets near traps and bait, as this can result in personal injury. With all of this in mind, pest control in Colorado Springs is always best left to a professional. Here are just three reasons to choose professional options over DIY.
- Professionals know how to utilize treatments in the least invasive and safest way possible.
- Professionals understand different pest problems and what products work best to address each unique pest infestation.
- Professionals will inform you through every step of their process so that you understand what you need to deal with problems on your property.
