Interior Pest Control Service in Toms River NJ
Our Interior Pest Control Service
At Dynamic Pest Control, we take a comprehensive approach to helping our customers avoid interior pests. This means we not only help you get rid of the pests that you currently have, but also provide an inspection to show you how to prevent future pest infestations. The steps for prevention usually include removing things that attract pests, focusing on exclusion, and period maintenance of interior pest control options.
The first thing any pest control company should offer is an inspection to see what type of pest problem is happening. If you are seeing pests, then the reality is that you probably have more of a pest issue than you realize. If you have seen evidence of mice or rats, you probably have several rodents living in your home. If you are seeing bugs like ants, cockroaches, silverfish, moths, or termites, then you may have an infestation or your home may be providing a space for a colony. If you are seeing insect waste or droppings, but not yet seeing insects, you may be on the brink of a major problem. Even pest animals that may not actually live in homes, such as fleas and ticks, are opportunistic feeders and breeders that can quickly become an issue. An inspection should reveal what types of pests are present and be the first step to a customized pest control plan.
The next step is to discuss prevention. Pests are attracted to food and water sources. Making sure that there are no interior leaks causing damp spaces is one important step in prevention. Not overwatering your foundation or plants that are close to the home is also important. Keeping pet food stored securely and properly closing food in pantries or cabinets helps secure your food supply. However, exclusion also focuses on keeping pests outside. Adolescent mice can enter through a hole the size of a pen and even fully-grown adult rats can get through holes as small as a quarter. Therefore, it is critical to ensure that all access points are closed. Insects can obviously enter through even smaller holes, so it is important to make sure that screens and weather-stripping are kept in good repair.
Finally, an interior pest program should be customized to the needs of your home. It should focus on the pests that are present, as well as pests that are likely to occur. It should also take into account the people and pets in your home, ensuring your safety while targeting invading pests.
