Protect Your Home from Common Pests

Did You Know

We all want our houses to be a clean, relaxing, and safe haven to call ‘home’. Keeping a house full of humans clean can be hard enough as it is…keeping unwanted pests from calling your house ‘home’ as well, can be even harder.

Here are four ways to help keep your home clean and pest-free.

  1. Thorough Cleaning

  • Keep places like the sink clean and free of dirty dishes sitting for long periods of time.

  • Regularly clean out the refrigerator and pantry.

  • Clean up spilled food and drink immediately.

  • Be sure to check less common parts of your home such as the roof and basement periodically. These overlooked areas can be a breeding ground for common household pests.

  1. Decluttering

  • Cluttered cupboards or storage spaces allow for crevices and corners where pests can hide. Be sure to keep enclosed areas like closets, cupboards, drawers free of clutter.

  • Be sure to toss out any foods or perishables that are expired.

  1. Tight Seal

  • Seal any cracks or holes that can allow for any outside entry. It may not seem like much but checking under the doors or in the corners of windows can be an often overlooked entryway for pests to enter.

  • Be sure that your consumable items are sealed tight, this can prevent the attraction of pests looking for food or shelter.

  1. Minimize moisture

  • Keep an eye out for any leaks, dripping faucets, pooling drains, or any area of your home that is allowing excessive moisture. Taking care of this can help stop pests from gathering and breeding.

No matter how hard it is to keep your home clean, there is always a chance that unwanted pests can still find a way to take residence in your home. If they do, however, be sure to act quickly. Don’t wait to get help!

BEDBUG CONTROL

How to Control and Exterminate Bed Bugs in Bakersfield

​Reports of bed bug infestations have recently flooded the media. These blood-sucking insects are a major problem in the U.S. While bed bugs are not strictly nocturnal, they will schedule their activity opposite of your schedule. Therefore, bed bugs may go unnoticed unless obvious symptoms are present. Signs of bed bug infestations include blood spots on bed, bed bug shell casings, and small bites on skin.

Diagnosing for bed bugs is extremely difficult since they hide in the smallest crevices, particularly seams of mattresses hence their name. Since most signs are subtle, a professional bed bug inspection is needed to determine if a bed bug problem exists. We provide several bed bug treatment options that have been proven to be effective.

 

How to Identify Bed Bugs

Because bed bugs can be so subtly pervasive, chances are if you suspect them, you already have a full-fledged infestation. You may even have bed bugs without realizing it. One of the first signs of bed bugs may be small, itchy bite marks appearing on your body (often in a short row) after you’ve been sleeping on or sitting on or around infested areas.
Signs of bed bugs include:

  • Reddish stains on bed sheets from crushed bed bugs
  • Tiny dark spots (bed bug excrement)
  • Tiny pale or yellow skins shed from bed bugs
  • Live bed bugs

Where to look for signs of bed bugs:

  • Seams of mattresses or upholstered furniture
  • Joints of furniture
  • Where the wall meets the floor and ceiling
  • Cracks or crevices

Do It Yourself Bed Bug Prevention

Always check the beds when you are traveling by lifting up the sheets and looking in and around the seams of the mattress, as well as the joints of the bedframe.

Keep your luggage on a luggage rack, or hard surface. Do not leave your luggage or clothing on the bed, upholstered furniture, or carpet, where bed bugs can easily be hiding and transfer to your belongings.
Check over your luggage when you return home.

Thoroughly check over any furniture or other susceptible objects (luggage, stuffed animals, etc.) you bring into your home for signs of bed bugs, especially second-hand furniture. We are the leading Bakersfield pest control company! Below is some signs to look for if you think you have bed bugs!
