As the temperature outside drops, we cozy up inside our nice, warm houses. Unfortunately, so do insects and rodents. Whether the invaders are as small as an ant or as big as a family of skunks, your best defense against pests is sealing off their entry points into your home

Evaluate the Exterior

Mice are probably the biggest wintertime pest concern. A mouse can sneak in through a hole no bigger than a dime, while a raccoon-size creature can enter through a 6-inch opening. When examining your home's exterior walls, experts say to look for light coming through cracks. Also, feel for air movement, which can sometimes point you to a crack you can't see.

Focus on Windows and Doors

These are the most likely entry points for pests. If you plan on ever leaving your windows or doors open, you should fit them with screens, or check the existing screens for tears. Seal any cracks around windows and door frames with inexpensive caulk or foam. Weatherstripping and door sweeps can seal the moving parts of the door, so make sure it's in good condition.

Control Your Garden

Plants close to the house provide a haven for insects and rodents as they await their chance to dart through an open door. Keep plants 1 to 2 feet away from the house, weeds trimmed to a minimum, and don't let junk collect near the home.

Vigilance is key. Pests mount their primary attacks on our homes twice a year-once when the temperature drops at the beginning of winter, and once when it goes up again as summer starts. Keep your eyes open for any signs of activity.

Cluster flies are about 8 to 10 mm (.31 to .39 inches) long. They are dark grey, with black and silver (non-metallic) checkered stomachs, and many golden hairs on their upper body (these may or may not be present on older flies). Unlike house flies, their wings overlap when they are at rest.
At first glance, they may look like house flies, but they are larger, darker and slower-moving. There tends to be more of these flies in houses surrounded by large lawns or those backing onto open parks. The name "cluster fly" is used because of their habit of gathering in clusters after entering a house in the fall. They may give off a sickly, sweetish odour if disturbed.

Wasps are naturally curious insects that are attracted to the multitude of smells coming from your home. They also require quite a bit of water and have the ability to smell it evaporating into the air. So, a pool or birdbath located near your home will attract wasps. If you located a wasp nest near your home and properly removed it, there are a few steps you can take to prevent the wasps from coming back.

...
Wasps are attracted to your home's smells.
Step 1

Spray a flying insect insecticide under your home's eaves in early spring and again in the fall. Coat the eave's underside and the portion of siding beneath the eave. This does not repel a wasp but it does ensure that the wasp dies shortly after contact.

Step 2

Place wasp traps around your home. Make your own wasp trap by mixing some jam, beer, small pieces of fruit, orange juice and water in a coffee can. Cut a quarter size hole in the lid with scissors and put the lid on the can. Place these traps near windows and doors. Wasps enter the trap and can't get back out so they die.

Step 3

Store your fruit in the refrigerator. Wasps are attracted to sweet smells. Fruit sitting on your counter next to an open window draws them towards your home.

Step 4

Spray an aerosol pyrethrin on the plants and mulch surrounding your birdbath or pool. In order to keep these areas wasp free at all times, make an application once per day. However, misting these areas once per week is enough to prevent wasps from building a nest in the surrounding area.

Step 5

Spray a cypermethrin chemical underneath wooden decks once or twice per month. Wood releases an odor that attracts wasps. If your deck is built low to the ground, it is especially susceptible to wasp infestation.

This is the second time using Peregrine General Pest Control to remove wasps. They came quickly, got rid of the pests and the cost was very reasonable. We will use them again in the future as our yard seems to be a magnet for these pests. Would highly recommend them to others.

Squirrels love to make homes in attics, soffits and roof voids. If you aren't happy with these noisy and potentially destructive squatters, give us a call.
Our technicians install a one way door over the exit/entry point where the squirrels are coming and going. Once the squirrels have left the roof void the one way door is removed and the hole is permanently sealed.
