Ant Prevention Tips For Modesto, CA Residents

There is no faster way to ruin a good meal than having ants join the party. They steal our food and trail through our homes and yards, leaving us feeling hopeless to stop them. Luckily for you, we have some quick tips you can use to help keep ants out of your Modesto home.

Reduce food sources in and around your home. If ants have been marching in to find food, the best thing you can do is make sure they won’t find what they are looking for. This can be done by cleaning up immediately after meals and storing any leftover food in airtight containers. Also seal of any points of entry. If ants are invading, they have to be getting in somehow. Check your home’s exterior foundation for any cracks or gaps, and seal these using a high-quality caulking gun. In addition, check your home’s screens and ensure they are all in good repair. Finally, consider installing door sweeps on all exterior doors.

How To Spot Bed Bug Infestations In Modesto, CA

As long as people continue to shop and travel around here in Modesto, bed bugs will remain a constant threat. Bed bugs continue to hitchhike from object to object until they eventually find their way into our homes. The question is, how can we spot such a tiny bug and know if we do or do not have an infestation?

When checking for bed bugs, we recommend looking for these signs:

  • Look for bed bug bites. Red welts on your skin, usually found in a zigzag pattern, a line, or in small clusters, could mean bed bugs have been feasting on you while you sleep.
  • Do you see fecal matter? Small reddish-brown droppings in and around your bed can indicate the presence of bed bugs.
  • Have you discovered blood spots on your bedding? After bed bugs feed, they may dribble some of the blood they just consumed. Check for these bloodstains across your bed, carpets, furniture, and molding.
  • Bed bug eggs could be observed. Bed bugs will lay small white eggs around areas they have infested. Check for these eggs in clothing and in the seams around sleeping areas.

If you find any of these signs present in your home, it’s time to call the professionals, and here at Insect IQ, we are just that. We are in the business of setting families free from the oppression that bed bugs bring with them. To find out why Insect IQ is right for you, contact us today!
