What To Do If Squirrels Find Their Way Into Your Valley Center Attic
Some of the most common pests to invade homes in Valley Center are squirrels. These pesky rodents can squeeze through even the smallest holes, allowing them easy access to most attics. While they might even be cute, if you find squirrels in your attic, do not try to remove them on your own.
Being exposed to these creatures can put you in a position of contracting a harmful disease, such as:
- Rabies: Rabies is considered one of the most deadly diseases, and squirrels sometimes carry them. If you are bitten or scratched by a squirrel, seek immediate medical treatment.
- Lyme Disease: While it is actually a tick's fault for passing Lyme Disease, they often hitch rides on squirrels before transferring to a human host — you. Lyme Disease can cause stiffness and nerve pain, as well as swelling of the brain or spinal cord.
- Salmonella: This bacteria is transmitted to humans through droppings, which squirrels will leave everywhere in your attic if they invade. This illness can cause abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and fever and is generally just a nasty gastrointestinal experience.
At Habitat Protection, Inc, our technicians have the proper training (and tools) needed to remove the squirrels living in your attic safely. They will work to clean your attic to clear any bacteria. If there are squirrels in your Valley Center attic, give us a call today!
Valley Center Homeowners Guide To Avoiding Rodent Problems
Squirrels aren't the only types of rodents in Valley Center. Several others, such as rats and mice, are just as eager to invade your home if they find a way in.
Below are some ways you can prevent rodents from sneaking inside your home:
- The first step is to go around your home and locate any cracks, crevices, and holes. Immediately seal them up, as this is one of the easiest ways for all types of rodents to get inside your home.
- Take the time to clean out your garage, attic, and basement. Organize your material items, and place boxes and other things in a way that does not provide rodents with a safe place to nest.
- Often, rodents are also looking for steady access to water. Making sure your pipes and spigots do not leak and moisture and humidity don't build up in the air will make the place less appealing to them.
Trying to protect your home against pest infestations of any kind can be overwhelming because there are so many things to consider. At Habitat Protection, our technicians will develop prevention strategies unique to your home, keeping you safe from infestations. If you are looking for help in keeping the rodents out of your Valley Center home, give us a call today!
So, You've Discovered Your Valley Center Home Has Bed Bugs; Now What?
It may seem like a surprise to find them in your home, but bed bugs are becoming more and more common across the country, and Valley Center is no exception. The number one thing to know about bed bugs is that it's important to get help from a professional as soon as possible. The longer bed bugs remain in your home; the more widespread they will become and the more difficult to eliminate.
At Habitat Protection, we offer detailed inspections for bed bugs and can recommend treatments for each room of your home that is affected. Treatment options include heat treatments, residual sprays, and dust treatments, depending on the needs of your situation. We also offer 30 to 90-day warranties on bed bug control so you can be assured they won't return. Call us today to schedule your inspection or find out more about our services.
Why Spiders Enter Valley Center Homes & How To Keep Them Out
Unlike most common pests, spiders have no interest in our leftovers, and they don't come into our homes to escape changing temperatures or shelter from the weather. The number one reason spiders enter Valley Center homes is to hunt insect prey. If you are noticing an increase in spiders in or around your home, you are very likely to have another underlying pest infestation attracting them.
Luckily there are some ways you can discourage both spiders and their pest prey from settling in your home. These include:
- Minimize food access. Spiders aren't interested in your food, but the insects they hunt are. Keep food stored in inaccessible containers, wipe counters and sweep floors often to remove any crumbs or spills.
- Keep trash covered. Again, spider prey will often enter homes in search of something to eat, and an uncovered trash receptacle can be a banquet for these insects. Keep both indoor and outdoor trash cans and compost piles covered.
- Eliminate excess water. Both spiders and their prey will enter homes if they think there is access to plenty of water. Fix leaky plumbing, maintain drainage systems, use dehumidifiers, and replace wet or rotting materials to eliminate this attraction.
- Seal entry points. Spiders won't come into your home if they can't find a way inside. Seal gaps and cracks in your exterior walls and foundation, install weatherstripping and door sweeps, and repair or replace torn screens.
- Get rid of clutter inside and out. Spiders and other pests often hide in cluttered storage areas. Organizing these spaces limits areas spiders can hide and makes them easier to clean. Outdoor debris such as leaf piles, overgrown areas, and wood piles can also become a nesting area for spiders and other insects. If they settle on your lawn, they will be more likely to wander into your home.
Sweeping away spider webs is another way to discourage them from sticking around. If you need help with spider control, the professionals at Habitat Protection can help. We'll eliminate spiders and the pests attracting them and keep them from coming back.
What To Do About Bees On Your Valley Center Property
Bees, especially European honey bees, are not typically aggressive and can be beneficial to the environment, but even non-aggressive stinging insects can be dangerous to those who are allergic. And it can be hard to tell the difference between different species. If you notice bees on your Valley Center property, give the professionals at Habitat Protection a call. We can identify the species in your yard and provide you with stinging insect control as well as landscape pest control and prevention services. Plus, we offer live bee removal to keep both you and the bees safe moving forward.
Are Ants In Valley Center Bugging You Already?
Ants are one of the most common pests around the world, but that doesn't make them any less of a nuisance! Depending on the species, ants can spread disease, damage property, contaminate food, and overrun your home with their ever-growing populations. You can help prevent ants on your property using many of the same methods you would prevent spiders, including limiting access to food and water and eliminating entry points.
Regardless of the type of ant that is moving into your home, it's important to tackle the infestation as quickly as possible. The best way to do that is with professional ant control solutions from Habitat Protection. We offer both preventative options as well as treatments for active infestations so whether you're looking to address a current problem or you simply want to make sure you never have to face one, we have a plan that will work for you.
