Problem With Insects, Pests Or Bed Bugs?

You Need Mill Creek Pest Control

Everybody has pests insects or bugs in their home at one time or another in their lives. Some are easier to get rid of than others. Calling in a professional pest control company, generally means you are most likely to find a long lasting solution, rather than simply spraying a little insecticide yourself.

Bees And Wasps Control Services

Wasps nests can be handled easily if they are in the ground. It is simple enough to see where the wasps are entering into the soil. Then you just buy a puffer bottle of powder from the hardware shop, squirt it around the nest entrance and the wasps carry it in. What if the nest is up a tree, or under the roofing system of the house. Do you really wish to be up a ladder being stung by countless upset wasps?

Wasps are attracted to many types of food, they live on protein as well as sugars. Often people believe wasps eat just sweet food, such as fruit, sugary drinks, alcohol and sweets etc, although these foods are attractive to insect activity.

It is common to see them tucking into meat and pretty much anything they can get to. Therefore it is not just a case of removing the sweets from the picnic! The best thing to do if you are being overwhelmed in the garden is to watch them for a while and find where they are coming from, then call in a professional exterminator such as Local Pest Control Mill Creek who will safely and effectively remove the problem.

How To Prevent Ants?

Ants are a pain in many houses. Finding the nest and pouring boiling water onto it might be really satisfying, but it will not eliminate more than a few thousands of the countless ants in the nest.

If you’re worried that you might be at risk from an ant infestation you can put in place some simple ant repellant and ant deterrent measures. The checklist below will help you keep your home or business free from ants, or make sure your infestation doesn’t grow.

Most ants only come into your home to look for food. They are attracted to anything that’s sweet and sticky, which is why you find ants in kitchen cupboards or areas where food is kept.

With that in mind it’s important to not leave temptation in their path. To get rid of ants you must remember to:

  • Clear up – food and liquid spillages immediately. Even the tiniest of crumbs is enough to attract an army of ants to your home! Ants are mostly attracted to sugary treats, sugar granules and crumbs from biscuits, cakes etc.
  • Sweep up – any food crumbs from under your kitchen appliances and units. Ants are always scouting for food sources and it only takes a couple of crumbs for them to notify their friends to come and help!
  • Store your food – keep food in airtight containers or bags and store them away safely in cupboards or refrigerators – not openly. Even refrigerator seals are no problem for ants! Fruit bowls with fermenting fruit should be emptied regularly.
  • If you have a pet – clear up your pet’s left overs straight away. Pet foods are also a food source that will attracts ants to your home. Be sure to clean the bowls after use too.
  • Block off – the entry points for ants by sealing all cracks and crevices around your doors and window frames by the means of silicone or acrylic where necessary. Check for leaks from time to time; ants will do anything to get to that crumb!
  • In the garden – make sure all rubbish bins have tightly sealed lids; ants can easily detect the left overs in your rubbish bins and won’t hesitate to check it out!

Above all, cover any food in storage areas – you don’t know where ants have been walking before they march across your food.

If after going through our checklist you still continue to suffer from ant problems our bespoke ant extermination and control service is designed to combat your Ant infestation issues with the most appropriate and effective control methods.

Emergency Pest Control

How to Control Scale Insects on Indoor Plants

Commercial squirrel repellents depend on scents and flavors repugnant to the pests. You can create your own homemade repellent using a similar method from nontoxic items in the home. Repellents do not prevent all squirrel problems, and some individual squirrels may still brave the area to feast on your flowers or chase off the birds from your feeder. Using the repellent with other tactics, such as exclusion and plant protections, can help minimize the squirrels in your yard.
