Your home should be a sanctuary where you and your family feel comfortable and safe. Common household pests that find their way into your home cause many problems and add stress to your life. Some of the most significant issues that pest invasions cause are listed below:

  • The spread of disease-causing pathogens
  • Food contamination
  • Staining or otherwise damage to fabrics, walls, and other surfaces 
  • Painful bites
  • Foul-smelling odors

Implementing a year-round home pest control service is the best defense against any pest!

Pests like beetles, centipedes, fleas, Japanese beetles, millipedes, rodents, silverfish, stink bugs, and ticks should never be comfortable in our Columbia area homes. The biggest reason pests find their way to our properties is that they provide them with their basic needs. Safe shelter, multiple food sources, and reliable water sources attract common household pests and keep them from moving on. 

General Pest Prevention Tips: Keeping pests out of your home is best done by removing access points. Seal cracks in the foundation and place screens over vents and caps on chimneys. Make sure screens, door sweeps, and weatherstripping is intact. It is also important to remove moisture sources and their access to food by keeping lids on trash cans, storing food in airtight containers or the fridge, picking up leftover food in outdoor and indoor eating areas, and vacuuming and dusting your home regularly.
