Over the past month, we have focused on several regions with common pest issues, educating homeowners on controlling swarms of pests that may be harmful to families and their homes this fall.
In the southwest, we warned homeowners how the oppressive heat and extreme drought during the past few months is causing increases in pest populations and provided tips on how to safeguard homes from pests on the prowl for water.
With a large deer population in the northeast, we educated residents about the risks of deer tick-borne illnesses such as Lyme disease and ways to protect themselves when venturing outdoors this fall.
In the southeast, where ants are running rampant, tips were provided to ensure residents don’t become vulnerable to these creepy crawlers infesting yards and homes.
Finally we headed west, targeting bed bugs that have waged war on densely-populated cities. We offered tips on properly eradicating these resilient pests and preventing future home invasions.
And now, the time has finally come. Tomorrow officially begins National Inspect and Protect Week.
Make sure to tune in every day this week for the tools and information you need, as homeowners, to prevent pests from making their way into your home environment this fall and winter seasons. This week’s goal is to take you through the simple, yet effective I.N.S.P.E.C.T. process. By INvestigating, Studying, Preparing, Eliminating, Cleaning and Treating, you can effectively identify pest problems as they arise, control and successfully treat the problems and prevent future harm to families and homes from pests.
