SWFL PEST CONTROL TIPS

If you’re concerned about pests in your home or business, you are not alone. In the United States there are more than 18,000 pest management companies waiting to help you. Whether you employ one or prefer to do it yourself, your first step should be to get information. Our bug blog is full of pest control articles, news and valuable information that we’ve been sharing regularly. We also share tips and details on our facebook fanpage – be sure to like it if you haven’t already.

Before treating a pest infestation, identify the pest involved, and inspect to determine the nature and extent of the problem. Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer or a pest management professional, this information is necessary to determine the best methods to use to control the pest. Without knowledge of a pest’s identity, characteristics and level of activity, you’ll be applying control measures blindly instead of finding the right one for the job. At Lenny’s Pest Control, we’re happy to offer you a FREE In-Home Inspection to go over any details, information and let you know what we find in your home.

WHAT YOU CAN DO – WITHOUT PESTICIDES 

There are many, many things you can do to help prevent and eliminate pests in and around the home without using pesticides. Here are a few:

MOISTURE CONTROL – Removing moisture that attracts pests…

  • Repair leaky roofs, faucets, pipes and appliances.
  • Clean gutters and downspouts.
  • Direct water away from the house.
  • Eliminate standing water and water in outdoor containers.
  • Ensure that crawlspaces have vents and a vapor barrier.

EXCLUSION – Sealing keeps pests out…

  • Seal foundation cracks, and gaps where utility lines enter.
  • Keep doors, windows and vents screened and well sealed.
  • Keep exterior wood painted, stained or sealed.
  • Seal items in storage. Store items in plastic, not cardboard.
  • Before bringing in new items, inspect them for pests.

SANITATION – Cleaning removes food and hiding places…

  • Keep trash containers clean and tightly sealed.
  • Keep foods in sealed containers.
  • Don’t leave dog/cat food or birdseed out for long periods.
  • Remove clutter and junk, indoors and out.
  • Vacuum regularly.

PREVENTION – Making your home unattractive to pests…

  • Eliminate wood-to-ground contact.
  • Use gravel or rock instead of wood mulch.
  • Use concrete or plastic instead of wood landscape timbers.
  • Keep plants trimmed and woodpiles away from house.
  • Use yellow “bug lights” in exterior light fixtures.

MECHANICAL CONTROL – Removing pests, without pesticides…

  • Use snap traps for mice and rats.
  • Use sticky traps to locate and control insect/spider infestations.
  • Use pheromone traps for clothes moths, meal moths, etc.
  • Use light traps indoors for flies, etc., flypaper and swatters too.
  • Use a vacuum to remove ladybird beetles, fleas, spiders, etc.

Some of the methods above take more effort than others, some cost more, but all are important parts of your pest management plan. In many cases, one or more of these is enough to eliminate pests but we are always available to help you if these aren’t enough. Household pests for which non-chemical methods are best include most “pantry pests” (flour and grain beetles, meal moths, etc.) most types of flies, and fabric pests (clothes moths, carpet beetles).

Ticks in the Spring!

Lenny’s Pest Control is all about educating you and helping you protect your home and space from unwanted, bugs and pests. We would love to come out to your home or business and inspect your property, give you an estimate and get your protected. Please give us a call at (239) 945-6543 for all your pest control needs in southwest Florida. Our blog is dedicated to informing and educating you on what you need to know about bugs – today we’d like to educate you on Ticks!

Ticks season is coming: They’ll bug you this spring

Because of the extra-mild winter this year, the early spring could bring an unwelcome guest: the tick. Be warned: The warmer weather is good news for people and pets who want to be outside, but beware of an uptick of the hard-to-detect pest.

The basic reason is that the eggs will hatch sooner. “Eggs are already in the ground, but this is the time that they will be coming out in great numbers,” said Pollie Rueda, an entomologist stationed at the Smithsonianand Walter Reed Army institute of Research. He noted that the normal tick season is from May through August, but with the 70-degree temperatures in some places, the ticks may get a jump on the season.

Ticks that are already out and about are the visible adult, sesame-sized ones, noted Kristen Nordlund of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Think of these little buggers as the arachnid form of vampires. They hang out in blades of grass for a host to come along — a mouse, a dog, or a human — to attach themselves and feed off your blood over days, or until discovered, and they often leave disease behind — sometimes multiple illnesses.

The big concern for humans, according to the CDC, is that most tick infections occur during the “nymph” stage. Those recently hatched ticks are the size of the period at the end of this sentence, and they have four sets of legs and the ability to suck your blood. Because they are essentially invisible, preying on a host can easily go undetected.

In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36-48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted. Infections from ticks, such as Lyme disease (plus babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and anaplasmosisis), are on the rise and are difficult to diagnose. The symptoms are awful: from headaches to long-term joint pain and even heart problems.

Since 1992, the cases of Lyme disease have doubled, according to the CDC, and more than 21,000 cases are reported every year.

The CDC is conducting tests on actual households to confirm if spraying a pesticide in the backyard helps to reduce the incidence of human disease. Check its website for good information on preventive measures.
