Valentine’s Day is a time for love and appreciation, so the last thing you want are pests showing up to ruin the occasion! Unfortunately, some pests don’t care what special day it is and will try to get into your home and cause damage and destruction. So, to keep your Valentine’s Day festivities pest-free, here are some of the most common pests to avoid and tips to keep them away:
Ants and cockroaches
One way to help prevent ants and cockroaches from coming into your home during Valentine’s Day is to keep your home clean. Try to keep crumbs and food scraps o the floor, and make sure to take out the trash regularly. Lastly, consider using a natural insect repellent, such as Mapecon’s Termite and Ant control or Mapecon’s Cockroach control, to deter pests. I hope this helps you keep the ants and cockroaches away this Valentine’s Day!
Rodents (Rats and mice)
If you’re dealing with rats or mice during Valentine’s Day, it’s important to take preventative measures to ensure that your home remains rodent-free. Start by sealing any cracks or holes in your walls or foundations that could provide entry points for rats. Make sure that all food is stored in tightly sealed containers and that all trash is kept away from the home. If you have pets, keep their food away from the house as well. There are products like Mapecon’s Rat trap or Mapecon’s EZP Rat Control to prevent rodents from running free in your home. If you suspect an infestation, contact a pest control specialist to have it professionally managed.
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day of love and romance, not bedbugs! Unfortunately, it is possible for bedbugs to be present in any home, especially if you have recently travelled, been to a public place, or had visitors. The best way to prevent bedbugs is to inspect all furniture and mattresses, vacuum regularly, and keep things clean and tidy. If you believe you may have a bedbug infestation, contact a licensed pest control professional immediately. They will be able to assess the situation and provide you with the best course of action.
Flies during Valentine’s can be a bit of a nuisance, but there are ways to manage them. One of the most effective solutions is to keep all food scraps and garbage tightly sealed and stored away. Keeping the area clean and tidy will help to reduce the number of flies and other pests that are attracted to the scent of food. Additionally, you can try setting up fly traps around the house, using a fly swatter to get rid of any that get in or spraying an effective insect repellant such as Mapecon’s Total Insect Killer BIG-R Plus.
These pests can cause damage to your home, spread germs, and make it difficult to enjoy your holiday!
