While spiders eat other pests in the home, and generally pose little threat to people, they elicit a massive fear response in today's world. Here at Lake of the Ozarks, we are unlucky in that there are a couple of fairly venomous spiders that like to dwell within the home. Specifically, the Black Widow and Brown Recluse species. Both of these are extremely venomous and turn a household on edge. While they eat other pests and usually mind their own business, a threatened spider will bite. The best course of action is to call the Best Pest Control at Lake of the Ozarks so we can make sure to get rid of all the spiders - even the ones you can't see.
Rodents are responsible for a large amount of household issues, and often go unnoticed due to their ability to squeeze into nearly anywhere and hide. A mouse needs a minimum gap of 1/4 of an inch to squeeze into the void between the walls of your home. Once there, they can do what mice do best: reproduce and chew on stuff. Unfortunately, that stuff is often the electrical wiring found throughout the house. This poses a serious fire risk because the rodents will chew the insulation off of the wires, allowing them to possibly ignite surrounding materials, setting fire to your home!
Everyone's least favorite part of summer, the mosquito brings a massive amount of destruction with its presence. A boom in the mosquito population means a boom in the population for creatures that eat them, including spiders, bats, and other bugs. When they bite, mosquitoes leave rashes and welts that itch and burn, but that's not all: they can also transmit several diseases including the West Nile Virus. The quality of life of a home that is infested with mosquitoes is significantly lower than one that is free from the bites, bugs and dangers that this pests presents.
Simply practicing good home cleaning habits helps to eliminate several pest issues. Keeping the floor vacuumed and clean will go a long way in preventing bugs invading, which in turn, curbs the spiders. Most pests only go where there is food or shelter for them. As the weather cools off this fall, pests will see your warm and cozy home as a local hotel. If you find yourself on the wrong end of a booming rodent or mosquito population, call Best Pest Control at the Lake of the Ozarks. We'll give a free estimate, and a clear course of action on the next steps to take to rid your home of these annoying and dangerous creatures.
