Pest control for your Yakima County home shouldn’t be ignored, as neglecting pest control services can put you at risk for a serious infestation of insects or rodents. Trust Yakima County pest control professionals to help you with prevention and treatment methods that you can count on.

Pest Control Is A Year-Round Task

Pest control in Yakima is a year-round task, despite the widespread belief that you only need to keep pests outside during the spring and summer. While it’s true that pests are out in force during the warmer months, all pest invaders may attempt to infiltrate your home as the weather changes, and they need somewhere safe and warm to stay. Plus, other types of pests like termites work underground. They will constantly be chewing at the areas around your home, no matter the temperature, meaning that you must always be on guard against infestation.

Year-round quality pest control can be challenging to maintain all by yourself, which is why Prosite is here to help you.

All The Ways Pests Can Wreak Havoc In Your Home

Pests can wreak havoc in your home in many different ways, and if you aren’t careful, a full-blown infestation can lead to serious health and safety risks. All pests risk disease and illness, as most insects and rodents carry bacteria and pathogens into your home when they invade. The more significant a pest infestation is, the more likely these pests will contaminate your surfaces and food storage areas with illness-causing substances.

Pests will leave behind feces and urine to add to the health issues, ruining your home and creating an unhygienic environment. Certain pests may also trigger allergic reactions, asthma problems, or breathing issues when spread out through your property.

Furthermore, pests are incredibly destructive. Insects will soil areas with droppings, shed wings or skins, and eggs. At the same time, rodents, termites, and certain ant species will chew through your home's wood, brick, plumbing areas, and electrical wires, causing serious damage and risks of shorts, fires, and structural collapse.

Five Natural Ways To Make Your Home Less Attractive To Pests

If you want to make your home less attractive to pests, you can follow these five natural prevention steps:

  1. Seal potential entry points like the cracks around windows and doors and the gaps in your home’s foundation or roof.
  2. Always store leftover food properly, never leave out dirty dishes, and use airtight containers in food pantry areas to keep pests out.
  3. Throw trash promptly in tightly-sealed bags, clean up food and drink spills as soon as possible, and use trash cans with fitted lids to prevent pest scavenging.
  4. Ensure that outdoor areas are kept free of long grasses, woodpiles, and debris to reduce harborage areas for pests.
  5. Fix all moisture issues and leaks that lead to pools of excess water, as these areas can often attract pests.
