Pests have long been a threat to the quality of life we all enjoy. They can transmit disease, spread bacteria and cause property damage. Bugs by Brian® wants to help your family and home stay pest free.
We d-bug for you and your family over 30 different pests inside and outside of your home. Let’s talk about the most notable ones.
The Mouse: The mouse is one of the most well-known and troublesome house pests. A small rodent with round ears, pointed snout, and a long tail, mice often like to take up residence in homes where warmth and food are readily available. House mice like to build nests of soft materials and are often found near a food source within the home.
If you suspect you have mice in your home or business, they most effective and efficient way to get rid of them is to contact a professional pest control company that offers mice extermination services. Bugs by Brian pest control, serving St. Louis and surrounding areas, can easily assess your mouse problem, perform the mouse elimination treatment, and advise you on how to prevent the return of the mice in the future.
The Mosquito: Mosquitoes are insects found all over the US and are known to bite humans and animals. These bites produce a red whelp that itches and stings. Aside from being itchy and irritating, mosquitoes can spread diseases through their bites such as the Zika Virus, Malaria, Encephalitis and dengue fever.
If mosquitoes are problematic around your home, there are a few things homeowners can do. Eliminate standing water. Tighten your outdoor faucets. Keep gutters clean of leaves and debris. Apply Mosquito Repellent. Products containing DEET typically work best, but heavy wear of these products can pose some health risks. Burning citronella candles outdoors can also help keep mosquitoes away while your family is outside.
If the mosquito population near your home is especially heavy, professional extermination treatment may be necessary. Bugs by Brian® Pest Control in St. Louis takes every measure to treat only target organisms, and never to put your family or pets at risk.
The Cockroach: Cockroaches have lived with people since before language was even developed. The name cockroach is thought to be Spanish in origin because it shares sounds with the word “cucaracha.” On average, the lifespan of a cockroach is anywhere from six months to a full year and a half. The four elements necessary for their survival are water, food, shelter and warmth.
In a commercial kitchen cockroaches, can hide in food preparation areas, table legs, deep fryers, stoves, food storage & sanitation areas, sinks, pipes, conduits, appliances and electric outlets. In a residential structure, cockroaches can be found in places like picture frames, under baseboards, wall voids, light fixtures, electronics, basements, sewer drains, cabinets, many crevices in the kitchen area and the exterior perimeter of the building.
