We all love the start of the spring and summer weather. It means that the weather is starting to warm up and that means that you can get outdoors. The warm weather also means your trees and flowers are flourishing and looking their best. You also need to make sure that you are up on your pest control services. As much as we love the warm weather there are many pests that have been waiting for the same. They can thrive but will still be looking for a way to survive. Most pests are looking to reproduce in this type of weather as well. That is why you may start to see more and more pests trying to gain access to your home. You also need to be concerned about the wildlife that is out in full force as well. If you want to keep mice, rats, squirrels, raccoons and other wild animals out of your house you want to make sure that you know what to do. A Five Star Termite & Pest Control outlines what you can do to keep wildlife out of your home.
Home Sealing Service & Exclusion for Pest Control
One of the things you need to realize is that many pests, including wild animals, are looking for an easy way in. The weather means that they are out and about and want to find a place they can call home. The easier it is to get in the house the more likely it is they will take advantage of it. The warmer weather means that you are opening your doors and your windows and garages to let in the nice air and that means that wildlife can take that as an open invitation. They also will look for spots around the house that might be damaged from the winter. These can be damage to siding, trim or weather stripping. It is a good idea to make sure that you block off any and all spots that wild animals might use to get in your house.
Do Not Feed the Wild Animals
You also should know that wild animals are not picky about what they eat. They are simply out to get a meal by whatever means possible. You might think that your food or your trash is not what an animal such as a possum or raccoon might be looking for. The interesting thing is that this is a perfect meal for many wild animals. Whatever you are eating they are happy to eat as well. You want to make sure that you are not giving them a free meal by leaving food out or bags off trash that have not been set in a bin. You also want to keep pet food up and put away when not being used and not left out overnight as well.
Avoid Wildlife Nesting in Your House & Attic
Lastly the animals are looking for a place they will feel comfortable making a nest. Your house is good enough for you so it is definitely good enough for wildlife as well. You want to make sure you know where they may want to try and nest and be sure that you have your home inspected and treated. If wildlife start nesting they can start to reproduce making a much larger infestation.
