Preventing a Spring Valley Mosquito Problem

As they say "an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure".

This is especially true if you live in Spring Valley and have a mosquito problem.

Your first step to avoid a mosquito infestation is to eradicate their breeding sites.

Mosquito Breeding Pond

Start with a tour around your home and yard. If you eradicate their breeding sites, you can prevent a Spring Valley mosquito infestation.

Standing water is prime mosquito breeding habitat, so look for places where water collects and can’t evaporate. Improperly installed or clogged gutters and downspouts are ideal situations for female mosquitoes to lay eggs. So are birdbaths, outdoor plant pot saucers, pet dishes and wading pools. If you have a non-aerated pond or ornamental water feature in your garden, you need to be especially alert.

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation

Cockroach Infestation

Cockroaches prefer to live and feed in the dark, so a cockroach seen during the day is a possible sign of infestation.

They are nocturnal insects and prefer dark, moist places to hide and breed.

They can be found behind refrigerators, sinks and stoves, as well as under floor drains and inside motors and major appliances. Because they can flatten their bodies to fit into narrow areas, cockroaches may also be found hiding beneath rubber mats, behind wallpaper and within wall cracks.

This is a question I'm constantly asked.

"Can I Do My Own Pest Control in Spring Valley?"

And the answer is (like the answer to so many other things) "It Depends."

First, it depends on the type of infestation you have. There's a big difference between an infestation of ants, for example and an infestation of bedbugs. You can see the ants, and no matter how many there are, their origin is a single nest with a queen. If you're patient, you can lay down ant poison to be taken back to the nest and eventually kill the queen. If there are other nests in the vicinity, you can repeat the process until they are all wiped out. Of course, your Spring Valley pest control company can do it faster and more efficiently, but it's still possible to handle it as a DIY pest control project. See Overrun with Ants?

Watch Out for Termites

Termite Pest Control

Termites mostly feed on dead plant material and cellulose, generally in the form of wood, leaf animal, litter, or soil dung. Termites are major detritivores, particularly in the tropical and subtropical regions, and their recycling of wood and plant matter is of considerable ecological importance. Unfortunately, this is of little comfort if it's your house that they are eating!

After mating, these termites locate a new breeding site and create another colony, spreading infestations throughout multiple locations in the case of drywood termites.

Small steps make a big difference in termite prevention and sustaining an effective termite treatment plan. When performing this examination, also be sure to keep an eye out for termite wastes.

Termites Are Cockroaches!
