Bad weather can cause devastating effects on your property across the country. Homeowners must make sure that their property is prepped for the damaging effects of any natural disaster. For human safety, reinforcing windows and bunkers are top priority to cope with extreme weather.
Many people wonder whether residential pest control is necessary when the weather is rude. The best protection and preparation involves a partnership between the homeowner and the exterminator. Together, we can keep your home or business pest free during bad weather. With that in mind and to prepare for combat with pest populations following bad weather, follow these pest prevention tips.
1. Improve Your Pre-Storm Pest Control Efforts
Usually, when there is a precaution against bad weather, the government issues some guidelines that help you to eradicate damage to your property. You can conduct both interior and exterior inspections of your house to identify any structural issues that may be exacerbated by the impending storm. Existing structural deterioration might become worsen. Existing water damage should be fixed, and seal all your cracks with a silicon-based caulk. Furthermore, clean all the potential pest breeding sites pre and post-storm.
2. Drain Standing Water for Preventing Mosquito Breeding
Though storms would effectively eradicate any existing mosquito and other types of pests, standing water may be an ideal breeding site for them to reappear. Keep your inside and outside dry as possible, as mosquitoes need only a bottle cap full – half an inch – of water to breed. Draining and emptying areas like birdbaths, gutters, flowerpots, and grills can help you stop the pests’ breeding process.
3. Get Rid of Garbage and other Damaged Debris
The spoiled food you have to throw into the garbage during bad weather can invite all the pests near your house. Pests mainly collect food from our thrown garbage. Make sure to seal every container you have outside your home to safely dispose of your garbage without risk. Rotten food and enticed clutter are the most appealing things for rodents, flies, and other pests. If you are unable to ensure all the steps, you might have to call a specialist.
