Happy Friday! With a weekend forecast full of rain, you might notice some extra pests trying to get ahold of you. Millipedes, centipedes, roaches, and termites are most likely to move indoors when it rains. Rainwater can push them in through the exterior of your home such as holes in the foundation, and gaps in windows or doors. Termites in particular are attracted to damp and decaying wood around the property that could be caused by the rain.
Improper drainage in flower beds or lawns near the house can attract mosquitos, as well as the other bugs mentioned as well. Reducing moisture as much as you can will help reduce the bug populations, on top of regular pest control treatments.
Pest control treatments around the exterior of the home can create a barrier between the outdoors and pests. Almost all bugs you see in your house come in from outside, and pest control sprays can help kill them before they get inside.
We hope this helps! We offer regular pest control treatments, as well as termite and mosquito control. If you’re interested, send us a message on Messenger or call us at 318-286-0967.
