Don't wait to be bit. Order treatment now.

Early Rain Brings Pests!

Springtime is the worst time of year for insects and other pests. Over 80 percent of homeowners experience pest problems in the spring. Due to a warm winter and heavy and early spring rain, ants and termites are making an early appearance. Termites, cockroaches, rats, bed bugs and mice are among the most popular concerns for homeowners; termites being the most popular in 2012.

Save Thousands of Dollars!

However, there are ways to prevent pest infestations before having to dish out hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of dollars in professional pest control or structure repair. Seal cracks and small openings around windows, garage doors, utility entry points, and especially doors.

Constant Prevention Keeps the Pests Away

Stagnant water around the home will attract mosquitoes, ants, and termites, so it’s best to remove the water as soon as possible. Keeping tree branches and bushes trimmed neatly so that they are not touching the home can keep rats, mice, termites, and ants away from the home. If you have windows without screens, or screens that need repair, it would be wise to change them as soon as possible.

Do Your Part and Prevent Infestation!

Many pests need humidity to survive, so fixing dripping taps and leaking pipes can reduce infestation drastically. Store your food in sealed containers on counter-tops, cupboards, or in a refrigerator, and be sure to empty garbage cans and recycle bins regularly to avoid attracting insects and varmints.

Don’t wait to get bit by nasty bugs and pests or thousands of dollars in pest damage. Call or contact Century Pest Control today to schedule an appointment.
