Why are Pests Attracted to Your Home?

Not all pests are immediately harmful, but it’s never fun to encounter a pest in your home. But, unfortunately, pests like many of the same things we do—warmth, water, sugary snacks, leftovers. All it takes is a small crack in the siding, or an open window without a screen, for bugs and rodents to sneak inside. The best way to prevent a home infestation, though, is to keep pests from entering in the first place.

Instead of worrying about bugs every day, trust an Aptive Environmental Specialist to apply protective treatments to your home each season. Our methods and warranty for pest management are the best in the industry. With our Four Seasons Protection Plan, your home will remain pest-free all year long, no matter the weather.

How to Keep Pests Away from Your House

The main reason pests enter homes is the smell of food. Rodents, pantry pests and other insects all want a share of the crumbs on that plate on the counter or in the garbage bag you’ve been meaning to change.

Pests are experts at exploiting forgotten trash and messes for food. Crumbs and food scraps attract pests more than anything else. The best tip for keeping them out of your home is by keeping food sealed and garbage controlled. Seal all food in the refrigerator or in containers made of glass or metal. Don’t forget to clean dishes or lock them in the dishwasher after you’ve finished using them. And remember to change your garbage bags frequently.

Common Spring Pests

Pavement ants are a huge nuisance when they’ve just woken up from winter hibernation. Earwigs also reemerge in the spring in places where they can find moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Aphids take advantage of spring’s fresh blooms by feeding on flowers and tree leaves.

Common Fall Pests

Fall is the season when your home is most in danger of becoming a hub for pests. Millipedes, carpet beetles and ants are three of the most common culprits of pest infestations in Connecticut. Spiders love to build webs in dark corners of cluttered storage rooms, or in areas with little traffic. And mice can be the worst offenders, finding their way into the walls of your home and potentially damaging your wiring to build winter nests.

Common Summer Pests

Wasps and bees are more active as late spring turns to summer. These insects often nest in hard-to-reach places, such as patios and roofs. Cockroaches are also especially active in the summer, searching kitchen countertops and tall lawns for food.

Common Winter Pests

Though many pests go into some form of hibernation in the winter, cockroaches remain active year-round. Mice, too, still need to eat. You might catch a glimpse of one scurrying back to its hole after scavenging for food during daylight hours.

Aptive Environmental’s industry-leading Four Seasons Protection Plan is specifically designed to keep these and other common pests under control and out of your home during every season. Call our local Aptive branch in Norwalk, CT to receive a free quote for your home or business today.
