Pest control in Ontario is a year round job. Even during the heart of winter, pests can still be a real problem for homes and commercial properties. This means that we have to adjust our views on pests; they can occur at anytime of the year. While you may be safe from mosquitoes, bees, and wasps, you are still at risk for rodents, cockroaches, and more. Being diligent about securing your home even in the coldest months is the easiest way to avoid a home infestation.
Lets talk about how you can begin to secure your home in preparation for the cold months. First, put on some old clothes and get ready to go outside and be ready to head under the house as well! Take a lap around your property to look for standing water, leaky pipes, or water spigots that are dripping. Pests need water in order to survive, cutting out this source will cut down significantly on pest infestations. Another source of pests comes from food. Clean up spills, secure trash, and keep compost piles far from entrances to your home. Sealing small cracks in the foundation, under the house, under doors, on the sides of the house, and in windows will also cut down on entrance points into your home. ICU Pest Control can help you detect potential water and food sources, entrance points, and other potential problems before an infestation can occur.
