The most effective and best pest control method is prevention. Follow these tips to ensure you are not attracting pests in the first place:
Elimination of Food Sources: Pests require a consistent food supply to survive. Pest control measures often involve removing or securing potential food sources, making it difficult for pests to find sustenance.
Removal of Shelter: Pests need hiding places to evade predators and environmental conditions. Removing these harborage areas by eliminating clutter inside and outside the home can prevent pests from seeking refuge.
Reducing Moisture: Many pests, like cockroaches and termites, thrive in damp environments. Pest control can involve fixing leaky pipes, improving ventilation, and addressing moisture issues that attract and support pests.
Seal Penetration Points: During our Once-A-Year Pest Protection service, your Safer Home Services technician will seal all cracks and crevices that pests could use to get into your home, stopping any infestations before they can start.
Educational Efforts: Safer Home Services educates homeowners about practices that can deter pests. This includes proper storage of food, regular cleaning, and maintaining a tidy environment.
It is best to clean your home before Safer Home Services visits. This enables our treatments to stay on the surface longer.
While maintaining a clean and tidy house can help reduce the likelihood of pest infestations, it’s important to note that pests can still find their way into even the cleanest of homes. A clean house creates an environment that is less attractive to pests and can make it more difficult for them to thrive, but it’s not a foolproof method to keep pests away entirely.
Termites eat wood on a 24/7/365 basis. The average colony will eat around 13 pounds of wood a year. Termites CAN eat enough to cause a home to fall down, even if it takes years for that kind of damage. Termites cause billions of dollars worth of damage in the U.S. every year.
If you see a swarm of insects, there’s a good possibility you have a termite infestation. You can also look for: discarded insect wings, hollow-sounding wood, cracked or distorted paint on wood surfaces, mud tubes on exterior walls, or wood-colored droppings called frass.
The three most common types of termites are Subterranean, Formoson, and Drywood.

The cost of rodent control services can vary widely based on factors such as the severity of the infestation, the size of the property, the location, and the specific methods and treatments used. Safer Home Services can inspect your home and give you an estimate on your rodent control problem.
Rodent control is worth it when you’re dealing with a rodent infestation that poses risks to your property, health, and well-being. Here are some reasons why rodent control can be worthwhile:
Health Risks: Rodents can carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans through contact with their droppings, urine, or bites. Diseases like Hantavirus, Salmonella, and Leptospirosis are associated with rodent infestations.
Property Damage: Rodents have strong teeth that can chew through various materials, including wood, plastic, and electrical wiring. This can lead to costly damage to your property’s structure and wiring systems.
Contamination of Food: Rodents can contaminate your food and food storage areas, leading to potential health hazards. They leave behind droppings, urine, and hair that can make food unsafe to consume.
Fire Hazards: Gnawed electrical wires can increase the risk of electrical fires. Rodents chewing on wiring can cause short circuits and other electrical issues.
Allergies and Asthma: Rodent allergens can trigger allergies and exacerbate asthma symptoms in sensitive individuals.
Breeding Rate: Rodents reproduce rapidly. A small infestation can quickly become a larger one if not addressed promptly.
Peace of Mind: Knowing that your living space is rodent-free can provide peace of mind and improve your overall quality of life.
Preventative Measures: Rodent control from Safer Home Services not only eradicates existing infestations but also implements preventative measures to avoid future infestations.
Preparing your home before a rodent control service appointment is important to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment. Here’s how you can prepare your home for rodent control:
Clear the Area: Remove any clutter and items that might obstruct the pest control professionals’ access to key areas, such as crawl spaces, attics, and corners where rodents might hide.
Store Food Properly: Seal all food items in airtight containers to prevent contamination and to reduce potential attractants for rodents.
Clean Thoroughly: Clean all areas, especially the kitchen, to eliminate crumbs, food residue, and potential nesting materials. Focus on areas that might attract rodents.
Secure Garbage: Place garbage in tightly sealed containers and consider taking out the trash before the treatment to minimize food sources for rodents.
Remove Pet Food: If you have pets, remove their food and water bowls during the treatment. Store pet food in sealed containers.
Clear the Perimeter: Trim back shrubs and plants that are in close proximity to your home’s exterior. This eliminates things that rodents might use to access your property.
Communicate with Professionals: Follow any specific instructions provided by the Safer Home Services professionals. They might have recommendations tailored to your situation.
Prevention is the best rodent control method. Removing food sources, water, and items that provide shelter for rodents is the best way to prevent rodent infestations.
How to get rid of rodents in your house:
Getting rid of rodents in your house involves a combination of preventive measures, exclusion techniques, and, if necessary, targeted treatments. Calling in professionals with experience handling rodent issues is often the fastest and most thorough way to ensure your home is free from these unwanted guests.
It’s generally recommended to clean before rodent control, as cleaning before the treatment can help enhance its effectiveness and improve the overall results.
While a clean house can help deter rodents and reduce the likelihood of infestations, it’s important to note that rodents can still find their way into even well-maintained homes. A clean environment makes it less appealing for rodents, but it’s not a foolproof method to keep them away entirely. Here’s why:
Food Sources: Rodents are attracted to food sources. Keeping your home clean, particularly in the kitchen and dining areas, by promptly cleaning up crumbs, spills, and food residue can make it less likely for rodents to find sustenance.
Reduced Shelter: Clutter and debris provide hiding spots for rodents. Regular cleaning and de-cluttering can limit these hiding places and make it harder for rodents to find safe spaces.
Preventive Measures: Proper storage of food in airtight containers, sealing entry points, and maintaining cleanliness can help prevent rodents from being attracted to your home.
Early Detection: A clean environment allows you to identify signs of rodent activity more quickly. This enables you to take action before an infestation becomes severe.
Health and Safety: A clean home is healthier for you and your family, and it reduces the risk of diseases and allergens associated with rodent infestations.
The cost of termite control services can vary significantly based on several factors, including the size of your property, and the severity of the termite infestation. Safer Home Services can inspect your home for termites and give you an estimate.
Preparing your home for termite control is essential to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment and the safety of your property and its occupants. Here’s how you can prepare your home for termite control:
Clear Access: Provide easy access to all areas that require treatment and remove obstacles or clutter that might hinder the pest control professionals’ work.
Remove Items from Perimeter: Move items such as firewood, stored materials, and debris away from the foundation to create a clear perimeter.
Trim Vegetation: Trim back shrubs, plants, and tree branches that touch the exterior walls or roof. This prevents termites from using these as bridges to access your home.
Seal Food and Medicine: Seal food items and medicines stored in kitchens, pantries, and bathrooms.
Pets: It is best to follow your termite control professionals’ recommendations for your pets during the termite treatment.
Secure Valuables: Cover or store valuable items, such as electronics and artwork, that might be exposed to the treatment.
Discuss Safety Measures: Consult with Safer Home Services about safety measures, such as how long you should stay out of treated areas and when it’s safe to return.
Follow Instructions: Follow any specific instructions provided by the pest control company. They might have guidelines on what you should do before, during, and after the treatment.
The best termite control method depends on several factors, including the type of termites you’re dealing with, the extent of the infestation, and your property’s construction. Safer Home Services will recommend the best termite control method for your situation.
While maintaining a clean and tidy house is important for overall hygiene and pest prevention, it’s important to note that a clean house alone is not sufficient to keep termites away. Termites are attracted to cellulose-based materials like wood, and they primarily feed on wood, paper, and other plant-based materials. Unlike some other pests that are attracted to food scraps or dirty environments, termites are drawn to the structural components of buildings and other wooden materials.
While some DIY termite control methods might provide temporary relief, effectively getting rid of termites typically requires professional assistance. Termites are highly destructive pests that can cause significant damage to your property if not properly treated.
If you suspect termite activity or have confirmed an infestation, it’s advisable to consult with a professional termite control company. Safer Home Services will assess your situation, provide appropriate treatment options, and help you protect your property from further damage.
