No matter the time of year, pests can find their way into your home and cause a plethora of problems for you and your family. Pests can leave behind a mess, while also bringing with them several possible health hazards.

Prevent Pest Control is a top pest control company that offers services for just about any pest that might be bothering you. When it comes to pest control, there are several different options available. Though you may be inclined to try some home DIY remedies, it’s very rare that those treatments are 100% effective.

We approach pest infestations by seasons, either summer or winter, and tackle those pests accordingly.

Summer Pests

The summertime is when insects and animals are most active. Even people tend to be out and about and spending more time outdoors during the summer months. However, this means that those pesky pests are also on the move and will seek to find a way into your home for some sort of shelter. Whether they’re looking to give birth or lay eggs, or even just beat the summer heat, you can bet that there is some sort of critter looking to find its way into your house or onto your property.

Carpenter Ants

While carpenter ants do not consume wood, they dig through it to make burrows and tunnels, often causing damage to homes. Top pest control companies will search for the nest and chemically treat it, along with baiting techniques, so that the entire colony dies and another colony doesn’t take its place.


The sight of a spider is more than enough to make most people’s skin crawl. While the mere presence of a spider doesn’t pose danger to humans, there are a couple of venomous spiders that can pose health risks to people if bitten. If you have an infestation or excess amounts of spiders in your home, a top pest control company, like Prevent Pest Control, can find their hiding spots using baiting techniques and chemically treat them.


Bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets…we don’t like things that sting. If you have a hive of wasps on your house or around your property they can be a threat to you, your family, and your pets. Stinging pests can be a great nuisance since they attack and tend to be aggressively defensive of their hive and colony. Using a special chemical spray, along with baiting techniques, top pest control companies will ensure that hives and colonies will be eradicated.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can cause various problems and health hazards if they infest your home. As the name suggests, bed bugs tend to live on your mattress or other, similar fabric furniture. They feed on human and animal blood and therefore stay near their food source. Any top pest control company, like Prevent Pest Control, will completely exterminate these pests for you using chemical treatments and follow-up methods to ensure that your house is bug-free.


Fleas, ticks, and mosquitos arrive with the warm summer air looking to feed on animal or human blood. These pests are very bothersome and can cause health issues for you and your pets, if not treated properly. Top pest control companies will identify the species and their hiding spot or nest and then come up with a plan to chemically treat the area accordingly, along with different baiting techniques.

Winter Pests

In the winter months, animals and insects seek shelter from the cold just as much as we do. However, these pests often cause property damage and other issues for us and our homes. Again, they may be seeking to give birth or lay eggs, or simply be seeking shelter from the cold. Either way, there are numerous ways any of these pests can cause problems for you and your family.

There are plenty of retail treatments that address mice in the home. However, some of these remedies can be toxic and dangerous if not handled properly. A top pest control professional will come to assess your situation to determine the best plan of action. More than likely, this will involve closing off entry points to your home and placing mouse traps. Since some mouse traps involve toxic chemicals that can also be harmful to humans, it’s best to have an expert professional place these traps for you.


Cockroaches often hitchhike their way into your home, but can also find their way through vents, crevices, or cracks. Cockroaches reproduce very quickly and enjoy the convenience of food and warmth provided by human homes. These insects have perfected hiding, and most over-the-counter products will not even reach their nest or eggs. Professionals from a top pest control company will assess your situation and come up with an individualized plan for you utilizing effective chemical sprays, baits, and closing off any possible entry ways.

Pavement Ants

While these ants usually reside outside beneath the pavement, hence their name, they will venture inside homes looking for food. Any crumbs or open food containers will attract them and keep them coming back for more. It’s easier to prevent an infestation from these ants than it is to remove them from your home. However, a top pest control company can eliminate them with a chemical spray and baiting techniques after assessing your individual situation.
