It is spring again, Pittsburgh. This is the season when overwintering pests come out of their hiding places in your basement, walls, and attic spaces. Wasps come to sting, ants come to eat, stink bugs come to stink and wood-eating termites come in search of a new home. This is the most important time of year to start thinking about pest control, Pittsburgh, PA. This is when you can stop the cycle of infestation.

Overwintering pests are already in your walls and they can be costly to eradicate. The best defense is to allow them to leave and seal your home from future infestation. This requires the guidance and assistance of a professional pest control provider. They will walk you through methods you can use to make your home less attractive to pests, seal entry points, and apply limited amounts of EPA-approved pesticides when natural exclusion isn't enough.

Year-round pest plans include routine visits from a certified technician. If you start now, you won't have to worry about carpenter ants exploiting soft targets on your home or spring termite swarmers beginning a silent invasion of your support beams. Pest technicians are trained to recognize the signs of carpenter ant and termite infestation and will immediately work to arrest any damage being done. The sad part about all those horror stories you hear about termites rendering homes unlivable is that these two insects can be stopped before they even enter a home.

Many pests are more than a simple nuisance. Some bite and sting, leaving poison and venom in your skin. Others pick up bacteria from trash bins, dead animals, sewage pipes and culvert systems, and deposit that bacteria on tables, counters and dishes. Some insects, like the cockroach, spread allergens when they shed their skins. And many pests leave their feces and urine all over your home.

If you live in Pittsburgh, PA, now is the time to call a Pittsburgh pest control company and stop pest problems before they can grow into a pest nightmare. Effective pest control is proactive pest control. Get a year-round pest control plan and discover how good life can be without pests in your Pittsburgh home.
