Vista Rodent Control
Rodent and rat infestations are a common occurrence in Vista, California. You can have a serious rodent infestation problem and never see a single rat or mouse. They are very stealthy and good at staying out of sight, so keeping an eye out for droppings. Other things that may indicate you have a rodent infestation are finding nesting materials throughout your house, such as shredded fabric, papers, and plants.
Keep an eye out for chewed open food packages, bad smells, and openings in your walls and floors. These are all signs that you may have a hidden rodent infestation in your home, and you need to give Payne Pest Management a call right away. The longer you wait, the more of a hazard they pose.
Some things you can do around your home to discourage rodents from coming in and help prevent an infestation are to keep your yard and homes clean and free of debris. Keep your yards clear of nesting zones, such as log piles, mulch piles, dried piles, and other debris. Keep your kitchen cleaned and keep crumbs off of the floor and counters.
Make sure to seal your trash cans and tie bags tightly when you take them outside. Getting rid of bird feeders and moving your pets’ food inside will also help keep mice and rats away from your home. Clean up all unwanted dog and cat food, and do not leave it out. Water can also attract rodents, such as birdbaths, dog bowls, and ponds.
Another important way to discourage rodents from nesting on your property is to seal up all holes inside and outside of your home. Plug small holes with a material like steel wool or patch up holes with putty. This prevents them from entering and nesting in your home.
Rodents can carry infectious diseases and can pose a threat to the health of you and your family. They live off of food scraps and crumbs, so keeping things cleaned and keeping your foods sealed off in air-tight containers will help keep you healthy and safe.
Vista Termite Control
There are several termite types, and they all have one thing in common: the ability to cause severe damage to your property. They pose a serious threat to your home and business building. Termites can live in your home for years without your knowledge, causing damage that you aren’t aware of.
There are some signs that may signify you have a termite infestation in your home:
- Noticings very small, pinpoint-sized holes in drywall
- Noticing new squeaks in your floorboards that weren’t always there
- Noticing your windows and doors are sticking more than they used to
- Discovering pathways that look like a maze in any wood around your home, including floors, furniture, walls, etc.
- Finding piles of discarded wings throughout your homes, such as in window sills, spider webs, or other surfaces around your home; termite swarms shed their wings soon after they take flight
- Finding mud tubes made out of soil and wood debris are a sign that termites have built connective tunnels between colonies.
- Noticing droppings; they look like tiny fecal mounds and are called “frass”
If you have not found any of these signs, there are a few things that you can do to prevent termites from entering your structure. Remove all loose wood, mulch, and other debris from your yard. Keep firewood at least 8 inches off the ground and far from the foundation of your home. Only let concrete foundations touch any mulch around your home.
