Pests in the home
Pests in the home
Pests are a problem. Termites can cause irreparable damage to your home. Not only do you have to pay for a contractor to come to your home, but you also need an exterminator to come and eliminate them. For such small creatures, they can create large amounts of damage to your home and your budget.
Termites are just one of the few common household pests. Those other common household pests include mites, fleas, and ticks. Most pests love moisture. Since they are so thin-skinned, much of the water they use to survive is derived from the air. Plus, they are much harder to spot in the dark nooks and crannies of our homes.
Pests can also make you and your family members sick.
Getting rid of pests in the home requires a few simple steps. First, you have to seal up all the corners in your home to prevent them from getting into your home. Second, you need to control your home's humidity.
See how Aprilaire can help with these household pests.
Pests love areas that have a ton of humidity, which is why most pests are found in your basement. Most pests have a thin layer of protection which leaves them very vulnerable. By controlling your humidity, you can eliminate the type of environment that is favorable to pests.
If they cannot survive, they cannot reproduce and they cannot harm your home.
Pests are usually part of a much larger problem in your home and that's high humidity. High humidity can lead to a lower immune response, mold, and mildew growth, and an increase in allergens.
An Aprilaire dehumidifier can help you eliminate any excess moisture in your home.
Please note: If there is already an infestation in your home, you will have to call an exterminator.
