These kinds of pests can also invite harmful bacteria and parasites that can cause an array of digestive diseases and sicknesses & this is another reason that Control is essential in order to avoid pests. Such bacteria and parasites can also be caused by unhygienic environments when not enough care for sanitation is used with common pets, especially dogs and rabbits.

You Know When Spring Arrives

Spring usually means warmer weather and a chance to start doing some of those odd jobs around the house that you added to your to-do list in winter. While you’re on your spring cleaning spree, have you noticed a few unwanted pests lurking around? Spring is not only a perfect time to do some of those jobs but, it’s a great time for creepy crawlies to start hatching and infesting your home.

If you’ve noticed more ants, cockroaches and spiders in and around your home, you really should do something about it before the hotter months start and infestation problems can get worse! Come December you might be hosting your annual Christmas party with ants nesting in your kitchen.

Not only is it embarrassing but ants carry lots of bacteria with them. Ants are small and can fit into tiny cracks. So regardless of how clean or sealed your kitchen is, they’ll find a way into your sugar jar!

Ants hanging around the outside or near windows and doors need to be stopped. They’ll soon find a way to escape the summer heat and retreat to the cooler parts inside your home. Like between walls, inside roof cavities, bathrooms, and laundries – you name it!

It’s not just ants that should worry you about spreading bacteria and disease. Cockroaches can live and fester inside you home for months. They’re quick insects and usually hang around in warm, dry and dark areas of your home. While cleaning, you might even find some inside your cupboard – if you find one cockroach, chances are there’s more!

Bugs are not the only ones that can cause problems in your home. Rodents like Mice and Rats might be living inside your walls.
