Tips To Avoid Stinging Insects In Newton, KS
Stinging insects such as bees and wasps can quickly take over your backyard and drive you inside on even the nicest day. While it is impossible to completely avoid them if you spend time outside, there are things you can do to avoid having stinging insects around your home:
Keep tight-fitting lids on trash cans or compost bins stored outside.
If you eat outside, make sure to clean those areas thoroughly and not leave food out.
Limit water sources by making sure gutters and downspouts are functional. Repair or replace leaking hoses and water fixtures.
Keep tree limbs trimmed away from the exterior of your home.
You can also contact us at Alta Pest Control to help you develop a plan to control stinging insects specific to your home, so you can get back to enjoying the outdoors without the fear of getting stung.
Three Problems Rodents Cause In Newton, KS
When it comes to pests, mice may feel less creepy than some others. Their fuzzy ears and little faces aren’t as scary as a spider with its eight legs or a cockroach scurrying across your floor. That doesn’t mean that rodents should be taken lightly. Here are three problems that rodents can cause in your Newton, KS, home:
1. Illness: There are over 35 diseases that are associated with rodents. Their urine and feces can transmit diseases, and they can also cause allergy issues in those who are sensitive.
2. Floods and fires: Rodents gnaw constantly. They chew to find food and to keep their teeth filed down. Rodents have been known to chew through live electrical wires, which can cause fires in your home. They can also gnaw through PVC and lead pipes, leading to flooding.
3. Population growth: Rodents are active breeders. For example, rats have two litters per year, with up to 15 babies per litter. This means that if you aren’t actively controlling the rodent population in your home, the problem is growing quickly.
If you have a rodent problem, call us and we will get to work on rodent removal, as well as a plan to keep them out in the future.
