Spring Cleaning Reveals Pest Problems in Milwaukee
Find and Eliminate Pests who Moved in During Winter
Sometimes, all it takes to reveal a major pest problem is some cleaning. Winter is ending, and spring cleaning time is right around the corner. It’s time to go through all the things we’ve let pile up in our homes and organize after a winter cleaning hiatus. The problem with cleaning and organizing old boxes and other accumulated winter materials is they’ve been creating perfect microhabitats for the pests we hate to see in our homes. Time to call A-Landlords Pest Management.
Most household pests prefer moist, dark areas commonly found outside. Think of fallen trees, mulch piles, stacks of firewood and other dead, organic matter layered on the ground. However, when conditions are not favorable in outdoor environments, it’s not uncommon for pests to seek refuge inside our homes.
Milwaukee Centipede Extermination and Prevention
When moving into our homes, pests will try to emulate the outdoor conditions they enjoy. And who can blame them? We try to do the same. Still, the fact remains those are our homes. Don’t let centipedes take over.
A-Landlords Pest Management will come to your house to inspect it for a centipede infestation. If we determine you have a centipede infestation problem, we will promptly take action and launch an effective counterattack, eradicating them from your home.
Our extermination and prevention process is quick and thorough. A-Landlords Pest Management has been in the business for over 25 years. Our pest elimination experts have the practice and experience allowing them to get the job done right in less time than you’d imagine.
When we come into your home with the goal of eliminating your centipede infestation, you won’t be required to evacuate your home and relocate to a hotel. Instead, our experts will set up a chemical barrier around your home, both inside and out, preventing the entrance and free mobility of centipedes throughout. Just stay away from the baseboards and walls for about an hour. After that, return to pre-centipede infestation life.
After completing the job, our Milwaukee exterminators provide helpful tips on how to prevent centipedes and other pests from returning to reinvade your home.
Make Your Environment Inhospitable to Centipedes and other Pests
Remember, centipedes and other bugs prefer moist, dark places. Moist and dark describe a lot of basements in people’s homes, or even in commercial buildings. They’re often frequently unused spaces of your home, leaving them undisturbed and perfect for pests.
Run a dehumidifier in your basement. Drying the air out will discourage centipedes from calling your home theirs. Seal the cracks in your basement walls or around your sump pump and windows – any place unwanted pests might be able to enter into your home.
Carpenter Ants Seasonal Milwaukee Pests
Carpenter ants are most notably active in our homes during spring and summer when they are able to expand their colonies to outdoor environments where they’re less likely to get noticed. Being noticed is also why they forage fortheir food at night, under the cover of shadows.
Like centipedes, they’re also noticeable in spring because cleaning uncovers crumbs and livable places where ants would likely have been using a travel routes.
