Protect Your Family

When I moved into my current home, I almost immediately noticed the roaches. While the place wasn’t overrun with them, I saw them far too often. For a few years, my husband and I tried almost every anti-roach product available on the market. We would enjoy success for a short duration. However, the roaches always came back. Then, a wonderful thing happened. We hired a pest control company to spray our home for termites. As a bonus, the chemicals used to prevent termites got rid of our roach issue. If you want to protect your family from harmful roaches, contact a local pest control entity today. On this blog, you will learn how to rid your home of roaches for good with the help of a pest control specialist.

Controlling The Mosquito Problem

Jennie Lucas

There is nothing like enjoying time outdoors with family and friends, but one type of little pest can turn a great occasion into a disaster. This little pest is a mosquito. Nobody likes having to scratch their little bites, but the real problem is they can carry deadly diseases. It is important that you do everything that you can to keep your house and area clear of any mosquito problem. The good news is there are a few different actions that you can take that will help you keep these flying blood suckers under control.


It may seem like a very simple action, but cleaning out your gutters is one of the very best ways to keep mosquitoes from multiplying around your house. If you have clogged gutters this makes a perfect little area for water to pool and get stagnant. These pools are a prime location for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Check your gutters after each major rainstorm and ensure that the gutters are clear. In fact after each rainstorm it is smart to get on your roof and look for any standing water, and if you find any be sure to sweep it off the roof. 

Dusk and Dawn

One of the best ways to keep from being bitten is to avoid being outside when mosquitoes are at their worst. The worst times to be outside are dusk and dawn. During the day it can get to hot for mosquitoes to be out and about, but during these two periods of time it is dangerous to be outside. If you absolutely have to be outside at these times then you will want to dress with long sleeves and pants. 

Pest Control

The most effective way to get rid of mosquitoes is to hire a pest control company to come and spray your home and yard for long-term mosquito control. There are many different ways that the professional will try and keep the pest problem under control, but the technician will be very well trained on how to kill these blood suckers. One of the first things that he or she will do is find standing water and get rid of it. They will also put down chemicals that will repel or even kill the insects. Many of the best pest control companies will even guarantee their work, so if the mosquitoes come back within a given time, they will come and re-spray.
