The most common factors that bring pests into homes are food and water. Kitchens and bathrooms often provide easy access to these basic needs, but you can make some simple changes to your habits to avoid attracting bugs in the future.
Cleaning regularly inside and outside is the best defense against pests. They won’t build nests or spread if they can’t find easy sources of food. Cleaning outside also eliminates easy hiding places and makes your home look less like a bug’s ideal habitat.
If you’ve found pests inside, controlling them as quickly as possible is key to preventing a large infestation. Calling Aptive Environmental is the easiest way to solve your pest problems and protect your home for the future. Our Four Seasons Protection Plan controls pests all year by targeting the bugs and rodents that are most active during each season.

The first steps to preventing pests are learning about what attracts them and making small changes to your routines to prevent this. Good cleaning habits include regularly vacuuming and sweeping floors to pick up crumbs. Never leave dirty dishes in the sink—pests love easily-accessible leftovers.
It’s also important to wipe counters to clean up spills from cooking. Mice and bugs can climb onto a counter easily and contaminate eating surfaces. Pests can also squeeze through tiny gaps around utility pipes and windows, so be sure to seal any openings you can see on exterior walls. Finally, change garbage bags frequently and store them away from your house until they’re picked up.
Does your Houston South household compost? It’s a great way to reduce waste (research shows that 30% of all household waste in the U.S. is organic materials1). Unfortunately, it can also attract pests. Whether you do it indoors or outdoors, it presents an easy food source for bugs and rodents. These quick tips can reduce the risk of attracting pests:
If your compost pile is outside, bury it 8” or deeper in the ground to help keep rodents away.
If you’re composting in a bin, use one with a lid or block the opening with wire or sticks to make it less accessible to pests.
Pouring a layer of dirt or dried leaves over the materials in your compost pile can partially mask the smell and make it more difficult for pests to find.
It might surprise you to learn that some pests, including pill bugs and slugs, can actually help the composting process. These pests thrive in the decomposing material and aerate it as they move around. However, they can quickly spread and become an infestation. If you see any pests around your compost pile or bin, call Aptive right away to control them quickly and easily.
Changing seasons mean changing pest activity. Even mild changes in temperature and shortened days can signal bugs and rodents to find indoor shelter.

Ants are one of the most common pests in Houston and these tiny insects become fully active again each spring. Mice and rats are other pests that you don’t want to find in your home. That could mean they overwintered in the walls and reproduced.
In the hot, humid summer weather in Texas, spiders become most active building webs to catch food. Cockroaches, which remain active all year, might be especially problematic outdoors in yards or gardens in the summer. Meanwhile wasps are one stinging insect that frequently ruins outdoor events.
Wasps become even more aggressive in the fall as they try to feed their colonies with a diminishing food supply. Rodents spend the fall searching for and storing supplies, including food and nesting materials, to survive the winter.
Cold weather—even mild chills in the Houston South area—can drive pests inside. This includes fleas that can quickly infest bedding, carpets, furniture and pets. Earwigs are one of several pests that seek indoor shelter during the winter temperature drops. This can create an even larger problem when they reemerge in the spring.
Aptive’s Four Seasons Protection Plan is specially designed to prevent pest infestations year-round by targeting these different pests at the times they’re most active. Call our Houston South branch today to learn more and schedule treatment for your home.
