The summer and fall seasons bring about an onslaught of pests. From wasps and other bugs that swarm the air while the weather is still warm to rodents that could damage power lines or cause electrical issues, homeowners have a lot to worry about as the seasons change. Still, there are ways to control the pest population. Check out these three essential types of pest control products that every homeowner should have in their arsenal.
Insects are often the bane of a homeowner's existence. They can burrow into wood, causing damage to a home's structural integrity, and create issues that cost thousands of dollars to fix. In addition to that, they can bite, cause rashes, and in general, become an absolute nuisance. To combat insects, homeowners should consider purchasing several types of bug sprays, as well as a handheld sprayer to help maintain some distance from the chemical. While sprayers can be expensive, ranging from around eighty to several hundred dollars, the spray itself is inexpensive, and the cost of the system should last for years.
Although many people believe that mice and other rodents are mainly a problem during colder months, they can actually breed all year long, infesting your home and causing anxiety. The best way to combat mice is by placing traps set with peanut butter and by distributing a rodent repellent around the areas where you suspect rodent activity. Although the damage that rodents cost can be extreme, treating and preventing them shouldn't cost more than around fifty dollars or so, for traps and repellents.
Squirrels and other animals can be just as dangerous to a home's well-being as mice and bugs. These larger rodents often traverse power lines, which can lead to power outages and other costly damages. If squirrels and other critters are a problem around your home, consider installing our Line Guard and Pole Guard products in order to prevent damage to power lines and reduce cost from rodent-related problems. Our products are humane, cost-effective, and eco-friendly, making them the perfect choice for homeowners everywhere.
