Avoid bites and stings this summer by calling in the experts. Avoid mosquito, flea and spider bites during the hot summer months by taking a few preventative measures. Keep your home free of roaches and your roof free of birds, too, to ensure your entire environment is safe and clean for you and your family.
Prevention is always better than cure, so be sure that Rover and your cats are dewormed and de–flea on a regular basis; change your linen every week and vacuum the insides of your cupboards vigilantly to avoid any nasty surprises.
This is where the experts enter the equation – call in pest control services to pinpoint where roaches breed, to oust spiders that are dangerous, lurking in corners and other spots such as the garage and sheds, eradicate ant nests and get rid of pesky birds in the roof that also carry fleas and other bugs such as ticks.
Never scratch bites from fleas and mosquitoes, ants and flies (yes – these can administer nasty bites too), as this could lead to infection. Some preventative measures include covering arms and ankles, especially at night, and placing wire or gauze over doors and windows. Fans will also discourage flies and mosquitoes in the home.
Choose insect repellents from the wide range readily available from your pharmacy or supermarket which come in a variety of lotions, creams, sprays and patches.
Repellents do not prevent bee, wasp, yellow jacket and hornet stings. Choose light-coloured clothes over bright clothes and try not to wear heavy scents and perfumes that could attract stinging insects.
Pest control experts assist with other insects and pests including bats, wood borer insects, termites and rodents.
Furthermore, South Africa plays host to a multitude of snakes – your pest control experts will remove reptiles from your property safely.
Prevention is always better than cure; ensure your home is safe from infestations of every description by using expert pest control services.
