A Quick Guide To Effective Ant Control For Your River Oaks Home  

Ants can easily become an issue in your River Oaks home given the amount of food and water that it provides. In order to keep these types of problems from taking place, try the following tips:

  • Tidy up. Ants are primarily in search of sweet food and they don’t care what form it takes. In order to make your home unappealing to them, sweep up after crumbs, store the garbage properly, and clean up any soap spills. 
  • Fix water issues. Another thing that ants require is water, so always be sure that faucets are fully turned off and that none of the fixtures around your home are leaking. 
  • Properly store food. Always take an extra step of precaution by storing food and pantry goods in sealed containers, whether they’re in a cabinet, the pantry, or on the counter. 
  • Secure your foundation. Ants can fit through almost any opening they find, so patch up cracks and crevices around your home.
  • Contact the pros. The most reliable way to prevent ant infestations is with professional help. A pest expert can give you the added benefit of granular and barrier treatments that protect you from ants and allow you to live your life.

How To Tell If Your River Oaks Home Has A Roach Problem

Cockroaches are regarded as one of the most unsanitary pests across the globe given their ability to spread harmful bacteria and the conditions that they tend to live amongst. Outbreaks happen all too often in River Oaks due to a buildup of food, moisture issues, and the presence of people. It is, however, common that homeowners like yourself may have a roach problem without even being fully aware of that fact. One of the easiest ways to determine if your home is hosting an invasion is by spotting a cockroach. Infestations are usually much larger than they appear on the surface and can contain hundreds of members, which is why seeing one scurry across the kitchen floor can indicate that there are many more. You might also notice small chew marks on boxes of pantry items like cereal and pasta, smear marks on the lower portions of walls, and large amounts of feces that resemble pepper flakes.

When cockroach problems happen, don’t try to eliminate them by yourself. Trying to accomplish a removal on your own might result in exposure to harmful bacteria and fail to address the entire outbreak. For more information on trusted cockroach removal, call Modern Pest Control today.

Why House Flies Invade River Oaks Homes

Fleas are parasitic pests that invade the homes of River Oaks in a variety of ways. Sometimes they enter by latching onto pets and personal belongings, while other times they jump between shared walls or were left behind by a previous occupant. No matter how a flea outbreak has developed, they are after one thing: blood. Fleas require blood in order to survive and multiply. While they are known to bite humans, they are most satisfied when they can feed off of cats and dogs or wildlife populations. Fleas are actually capable of beginning the feeding process within five minutes of attaching to a family pet and can feed for a consecutive two and a half hours, which allows them to consume approximately 15 times their body weight in blood. This scenario can pose a lot of health risks for pets that include anemia, hair loss, tapeworms, typhus, and tularemia. 

For homeowners who have a flea problem, the most secure way to address it is with professional help from Modern Pest Control. Our QualityPro certified staff has the experience and tools to rectify an extensive outbreak that isn’t always visible on the surface, plus we stand by all of our work to ensure the safety of our customers. To learn more about flea control, contact us today.
