Waltham Offers A Variety Of Residential Pest Plans & Programs
Most pest problems cannot be solved with just one treatment. Insects that are in the egg or cocoon stages will not be affected by a single treatment. Ant colonies make an invisible odor trail when they invade a home. If the first ants are killed, more ants can follow the odor trail and find their way into the home.
Busy families don’t want pests to invade their homes. Invading pests pose a variety of threats. Some pests, like carpenter ants, silverfish, and carpet beetles, can damage the home and its contents. Some moths and beetles can invade the kitchen and attack the food in the pantry. Other pests, like fleas, ticks, and wasps, can be a threat to the comfort and health of the family and pets in the home. Waltham Pest Services can help with residential pest control with their tailored pest control plans & programs.

Common Household Pests
Pests are a year-round threat. Some, like ants and spiders, are active in every season. Some pests, like earwigs and pillbugs, seem to move indoors whenever the weather changes. Autumn pests, like lady beetles and cluster flies, try to invade homes to escape the winter. Rodents and other animals invade homes for food or shelter any time they find an opening. Kitchen and garden pests can get out of hand if left unchecked.

Home Pest Control Tips
- Don't mulch too heavily. Two to four inches is best. Anything deeper encourages rot and mold growth and attracts such creatures as millipedes, centipedes, pill bugs, wood roaches, and ants. Crushed stone or synthetic mulch provides better drainage and discourages bugs.
- Eliminate wood piles and rotting wood around the yard. Make sure to store firewood away from the house.
- Remove fallen leaves and pine needles around the yard. Keep gutters free of leaves and pine needles. Make sure downspouts are clear and direct water away from the foundation.
- Trim shrubs and tree branches touching the house to allow better ventilation and eliminate convenient insect access.
- Reduce or eliminate ground cover such as ivy and pachysandra adjacent to the foundation.
- Thick ground cover provides hiding and nesting potential for insects and small rodents.
- Caulk and seal around windows, doors, utility wires and conduits, chimney/siding joints, and other potential insect entrances.
- Place rubbish and garbage in weatherproof containers with tight covers.
- Avoid placing fruit-bearing plants such as crab apple trees near the house. Fallen fruit attracts insects as it ferments and decomposes.
- Plants that produce deep tap roots, such as cedar, are more attractive to termites than plants with shallow, spreading root systems.
