Perimeter protection is the name of the best practice for pest management on your property, and all good Pest Control Companies should offer it to their customers, but in Penrith also? It is a good idea to protect your property from all pests as they are not only unpleasant to live with but are also likely to cause problems for other property owners, causing unnecessary expense. Maintaining a clean, well ventilated property free from pests can often be the most difficult pest control task. Although there are many methods to keeping pests away, the primary one remains that of regular cleaning. Below are some of the other ways you can keep your property free from Penrith pest control.
Keep rubbish such as plastic milk crates out of sight and out of reach of children and pets. These items are also likely to attract cockroaches, which may find their way into the house and begin to infest it. Garages and outside storage buildings also hold rubbish and they should be sealed and properly disposed of at regular intervals to prevent infestations. Make sure your bins are always visible so that you can dispose of rubbish in the correct way and so that you can spot any potential problem areas.
Be aware of your pets, and use protective covers for your dogs. Rodents, rabbits and squirrels will be attracted to your property due to smells, and you could also find rats and other pests inside your home if your dog/cat is scratching randomly across the floor. Be sure to clean up after them and keep the area well ventilated, especially if you have a pet. Keep your doors and windows shut tightly to keep pests from entering the property through these doors and windows.
Keep timber on your property dry and clean. Worms like damp wood and they will happily make their home in the holes, crevices and cracks. A simple solution to this problem is to wipe down the timber after it rains or use a damp cloth dipped in a liquid worm bait. You can also use repellents to keep pests away from your home.
Try and eradicate any pests as quickly as possible. Exterminators can be costly, but if you can catch and kill an infestation before it starts you can avoid unnecessary damage to your property. It’s also wise to keep your pest control products around the house where they will be easiest to access and use. This way you can stop an infestation before it gets out of control. You don’t want to waste your money on products you won’t use!
If you live in the coastal areas, you will need to take precautions to avoid attracting the pests inland. Seal any cracks and use caulk to stop water penetration. You should also regularly clean gutters to get rid of leaves and other debris that would otherwise end up in your bird feeders and bird baths and ruin their attraction to the food. If you live in an area prone to sea animals such as porpoises and sharks you should also take extra precautions.
