If you live in Longmont, Colorado, then we have some really great news for you. The same industry-leading pest control services that have been available to thousands of Colorado residents since 1965 are now available to residents right here in Longmont.
It's December here in Colorado, and there are a few things you can expect to happen this month. You can expect some dashing through the snow, a little walking in a winter wonderland, some carols being sung by a choir, and folks dressed up like Eskimos. That's why we have songs about these things. But, the song bed bugs love most this time of year is Perry Como singing, "There's no place like home for the holidays." And, since we would prefer you to, "find it hard to sleep tonight," because of the many reasons Nat King Cole sings about, and not because you have accidentally gotten bed bugs this year, we've put together this quick list of holiday bed bug tips.
Are you finding evidence of pests inside your home? Is this something new, or does this happen every year? We probably don't have to tell you that your home is a nice, cozy place for bugs and wildlife to hide from the harsh temperatures of winter. But, what you may not know is that winter invasions can be prevented. Here are 7 things that will help work to fully seal pests out.
The black widow spider is one of the most common spiders in Colorado. Doesn’t that give you the creeps? They are most prevalent when insect levels are at their highest during the summer months, but can be found in basements and attics all across Colorado in the winter as well. Black widow spiders are so scary looking; if one were to creep out into your view, you may very well be terrified.
Yup. It's happening again. You snuggle down into your soft warm bed when you hear it. Scratching, chewy noises just above your head. Could that be a mouse? How do they get in there? The next morning you slide the silverware drawer open and, what's that in the back? A scattering of mouse droppings? How did a mouse get inside that drawer? Then you grab the box of Cheerios from the cabinet only to find it has a hole chewed right through it. How on earth did a mouse get into that cabinet? Well, if you are wondering how mice are getting into these places, and you're curious why you have mice in your house in the first place, here are some ideas.
Residents in Estes Park are preparing for what is going to be a cold winter. They aren’t the only ones who are trying to stay warm and get prepared. Bugs and other fall pests are getting ready for the winter season, too. Fall pests are invading Estes Park, and if you don’t prepare, your home will be on their to-do list.
We often think of schools as a safe place to send our children--and they are. But, schools are the perfect hub for bed bugs to go from one home to another. For this reason, they have been reported in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. Don't worry. It isn't an out-of-control epidemic, and many schools are setting up strict guidelines for dealing with this issue. But you should arm your kids with knowledge about bed bugs, just in case.
