How Mice Enter Homes

How Mice Enter Your Home 

Mice enter homes in various ways. They enter through cracks, holes in the walls, floor, windows, ceiling or sewer lines.

Mice enter your home if the holes aren't sealed properly from  your sink of bathtub. They enter through plumbing and oven gas lines as well. When the weather changes and lowers in the fall theres a greater chance of infestation. Mice are capable of fitting through holes the size of a dime.  Once they enter your warm home, its rare that they will leave. They then can reproduce very quickly in just a few months.

Its best to seal all holes and cracks to prevent mice from coming in your home. Food must be stored away in containers and all trash should be disposed of as soon as possible. If you should have an infestation contact a pest control professional. All holes should be sealed with metal or cement, mice can't chew through either material.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants 

Carpenter ants are among the largest ants found within the united states. Carpenter ants can be difficult to control so it's best to call a professional.

Carpenter ants are social insects and usually nest in wood.  They excavate in rotting wood, trees and in structures so they readily infest wood foam insulation and cavities.

The workers excavate the nest, forage for food, and care for the young.  Carpenter ants feed on sugar solutions from honey dew-producing insects. They enter structures through gaps and cracks while they look for food.

Those Darn Fruit Flies !

Fruit Flies visit your home during any of the warmer months, but there’s a good chance that you’re experiencing a fruit fly invasion right now, as summer gives way to autumn. Fruit flies can be frustrating, because their source is often difficult to identify. Although not dangerous, these pests are certainly a nuisance.

Fruit flies are about 1/8 inch long, and have distinctive red compound eyes. They develop from egg to adult in about seven days, and can live for about a month. Females lay 400 to 500 eggs — do the math, and it’s easy to see why a swarm of the flies can seem to appear out of nowhere. Adults are attracted to overripe fruit and vegetables, as well as empty soda cans, beer cans, soup cans, and even dirty dishrags. They’re also attracted to fermented substances like wine, vinegar, and ketchup. Keep this in mind when creating DIY fruit fly traps. It can also be helpful to clean drains which might be home to decaying organic materials. The key to eliminating fruit flies and their relatives is cleanliness.

All About Termites (Silent Destroyers)

If you see the following signs in your house, you might have termites: 

• sawdust-like droppings 

• dirt or mud-like tubes or trails on the structure 

• damaged wood members (like window sills) 

swarming winged insects within the structure, especially in the spring or fall

Termites feed upon old roots, tree stumps, fallen tree limbs and branches on the ground, and similar materials. Occasionally termites attack living plants, including the roots of shrubs and trees.
