Ongoing pest management is a non-emergency, proactive approach to pest management and is a popular option for many homes and businesses. What’s bugging you? Chances are there are a list of pests around your home. Ongoing pest control maintains protection so that you hardly notice a pest. Here’s a closer look at how that works and why you might need it.
- Seasonal Pest – Seasonal pests are those that occur at a specific time each year. Summer is a good time to be a biting fly as there are a lot of warm-blooded creatures about to bite. Horse flies, deer flies, and the like are season pests. They emerge in late May and stay around much too long. The deal with seasonal pest is that they are on a calendar of sorts and they are the perfect target for casual pest management.
- Ongoing Pest Management is dynamic – in that it changes each visit to continue the pest control from the last visit and to adapt new controls to manage pests that are emerging. One problem with pests is that the pest list changes each week and month. By changing and addressing the new emerging pests, we keep the pest population small enough so that they are not a burden to the homeowner or business. Most people wait until they are overrun with pests before they call. Ongoing Pest Management is a monthly service designed to tackle those pestering pests all year long. It is a proactive approach to managing pests.
Types of Pests for Ongoing Pest Management
- Ants – From fire ants to pharaoh ants and their whacky cousins the crazy ants – Texas has more than its fair share of ants. Ants are also one of those pests that are around all year long.
- Mice and Rodents – Ever notice that at certain times of the year, rodents, especially mice, become more of a problem? Yep – these are both a seasonal pest and annual pest in that they are present all year long. The trick to controlling mice and rodents is to be proactive all year long, and focused on control during peak pest times.
- Bats – Bats and other small mammals are mostly a seasonal pest. Many species of bats migrate to the warmer areas of Texas and Southern Mexico and as they come, they look for places to roost. If your attic space or wall space is not secure, bats will happily take up residence in your home. The problem with these beneficial flyers is that they create big mess in a short amount of time.
