Is pest control in Rockingham County on your mind? If the title of this article caught your attention, we're willing to bet that you're dealing with some kind of pest making an appearance in your home or showing up in your yard. While we don't know which pest is driving you crazy, there are many tips we can give you to help you with Hampton pests.

Let's take a look at how residential and commercial pest control deal with pests and focus on two common pest problems we deal with here in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Home Pest Control In Hampton, NH

All of the pests that come into your yard have three things on their minds. They're looking for food, water, and harborage. The first step in getting control of pests around your Hampton home is to get control of these conditions. Here are a few common pests and tips that help to keep them from being pests:

  • The pests that drive people to seek residential pest control the most are ants. While there is some variance between species, all ants have the potential to be annoying because there are so many of them. Sanitation and exclusions are the best way to reduce ant activity and keep ants out.

  • Hampton is home to many spider species. Some prefer to be outside. Some prefer to be inside. No matter what spiders come into your yard, you can deter them by reducing insects because spiders eat insects. One way to reduce insects effectively is to replace exterior white lights with yellow lights. Insects are drawn to white light but they can't detect yellow light.

  • Mice and rats are common pests, but they don't have to be. Yards that are free of clutter, tall grass, organic debris, and hiding places are resistant to these animals.

  • Mosquitoes are seemingly everywhere. They can give you the impression that they populate every square yard in the entire state. This is not the case. When you step out of your home, mosquitoes come out of hiding to swarm around you. They're not out there flying around all the time. Pest problems like this can be easily addressed by a licensed professional because treatments applied to resting places in your yard will arrest mosquito activity. No mosquitoes means no swarms when you go outside.

Whether you apply natural methods to deter pests or hire a pest control provider, or both, you'll be doing more than preventing bugs and rodents from being annoying. These creatures have the potential to impact the health of your family as well as damage your property.

 

Commercial Pest Control In Hampton, NH

The same pests that drive residents crazy are the pests that can impact the bottom line of businesses in Hampton. Unfortunately, business owners don't have the luxury of ignoring them. When flies get into a business, they can present a health problem and result in a failed audit. When wasps sting customers, there could be litigation. When mice and rats run around inside a business, they can cause damage and contaminate foods, surfaces, dishes, stored items, and more.

We encourage all business owners to get a custom-designed commercial pest control plan in place. This plan should include the following:

  • Routine inspections

  • Appropriate IPM-based treatments and pest management

  • Ongoing monitoring of pest activity

  • Proper documentation

  • Warranties

Wasp Prevention Tips Every Hampton Homeowner Should Know

Wasp problems can sneak up on you. Paper wasps create aerial nests on structures and in landscaping. Yellow jackets create ground nests and can surprise you while you're mowing your lawn. You can deter these pests with natural pest management. Here are a few examples:

  • Address weed problems in your lawn, particularly weeds that have tiny flowers. Those flowers have nectar and wasps are attracted to a yard that has an abundance of this sweet food source.

  • Wasps can find food in your garbage. This is why you see them hovering near your trash receptacles. Keep your receptacles clean and covered. This will help to keep wasps away.

  • In spring, paper wasps begin to create aerial nests under the rooflines of sheds and other outbuildings. They start nests on the roofs of open porches. They even make nests on the exterior of homes. If you catch these tiny starter nests during the day, when no wasps are around, you can knock them down with a broom.

  • Yellow jackets build ground nests. If you fill in ground holes, you can deter these wasps.

These steps can reduce your chances of having trouble with wasps, but if you don't want any surprises, we recommend getting a year-round pest control plan that includes coverage for wasps. Routine visits from a pest-management professional can catch problems early and prevent painful encounters.

 

Mastering Mouse Infestations In Hampton

When you hear mouse noises in your walls, or you notice droppings, what do you do? Some Hampton residents buy traps to get rid of mice. While this can work, there are many ways things can go wrong. Mice aren't easy to trap. If you don't remove the mice from your home and prevent mice from continuing to get into your home, it can impact your health and present a risk to your property.

Pest professionals use a field-tested process to make sure no rodents remain in your home. It consists of inspections, deployment of mouse control products and exclusions, monitoring, and evaluations. If you're in Hampton, reach out to Big Blue Bug Solutions for industry-leading rodent control for your property. This is a pest problem that needs to be addressed. We have you covered.
