Autumn pest control what you need to know!
With autumn just a few days away what does that mean for pests entering your humble abode and how can you reduce the risk of pests entering your home?
Now is the time to protect your home with a long-lasting pest preventative treatment to keep those pesky pests away.
With pest it can be some time that you notice that there is an infestation as we slide into the cooler months pest to are looking for a nice warm spot to call their home and unfortunately that means our home is now theirs if we don’t get on top of it now.
Redline Pest Control always recommends our clients to go in and around their homes and look out for any gaping holes, cracks and crevices and seal them up, so pests have a much harder time entering your home.
Any over hanging branches will need to be cut so pests such as roof rats won’t be able to make your roof void their playground.
Autumns common pests!
When we think about pests we often think pests only come in the warmer months but in reality that is not true as pests are looking for shelter so they survive the cooler months and what is most annoying thing is that it is our homes that pests love to enter.
- German cockroaches
- Rodents – rats or mice
- Bed bugs
Where do pests love to live?
- Termites – love to feast on wooden structures in and around your home
- Roof voids
- Pipes and drains
- Kitchen cabinets
- Storage rooms
- Bin areas
- Clutter and boxes
Prevention is better than cure!
Redline Pest Control recommends preventative pest control to our clients which means get on top of it before it gets on top of you.
Kill pests before they get a chance to breed, therefore making infestations harder to get a hold of.
After your pest treatment has been carried out, what will happen and what should you do?
We often get calls from our clients stating that they are still seeing some pest activity after two weeks.
This is perfectly normal as we use a slow release chemical that allows the pests to come in contact with the chemical but once they do the chemical will attack their nervous system and they will die off, we ask our clients to wait six weeks and if they are still seeing an influx of pests then to give us a quick call where we can discuss what would be the next step to take.
For spider treatments we will advise you to leave the webs there for roughly seven days then knock the webs down that way we know that we are getting a hold of the spiders as they love to hide when a treatment has been carried out.
With ants they will need to take the chemical back to the nest so the queen can digest the bait once this happens you will notice that that they will die off but then spew out as the queen has died and there is no queen to give them signals to forage for food or defend their colony. Once they spew out and come in contact with the chemical they will die.
