How Can Pests Can Damage My Home?
Pests are not simply an annoyance, they can enter your home in large numbers, cause a lot of costly damage, and even introduce bacteria and viruses that can make you and your family ill. Common household pests that often enter Sutton homes and cause some serious problems include termites, rodents, and carpenter ants. Rodents like mice will chew through insulation, wires, and pipes which can lead to fires and water damage; they can damage your personal property and contaminate food sources with their urine and feces. Carpenter ants will bore holes into moist or decaying wood in order to create nesting areas; this can reduce the structural integrity of the wood structures in your home. Termites will also cause severe damage to your home as they actually consume wood. Termites often go unnoticed for months and this just causes an increase in the amount of damage that they inflict on your home. No matter what type of pest is in your home the safest most reliable way to eliminate and control them is with the help of a Sutton exterminator.
Pest Prevention Tips For Sutton Homeowners
In addition to getting help from a Sutton pest control professional, there are general things that you can do in and around your home to help prevent a variety of household pests from invading. Making sure that the exterior of your home is secure is the best way to prevent pests from being able to enter. This can be accomplished by:
Sealing any cracks, holes or openings along the foundation
Caulking gaps around exterior doors and windows
Replacing torn or ripped window screens
You will also want to make sure that places where pests like to hide or forage for food are not easily accessible. This can be accomplished by:
Taking the trash out regularly
Keeping lids on trash cans and keeping them away from the outside of your home
Gardens and compost piles should also be built a distance from your home
Trees and bushes should be trimmed so they do not touch the exterior of the home
Do not leave food out on counters
Keep all open food sealed in airtight containers
