One of the most common reasons that pests reappear after a treatment is because they are still alive. Pests can lay thousands of eggs at a time, so even if the pest population seems to be reduced after a treatment, there are still hundreds of generations waiting to grow and repopulate.
Another reason that pests reappear after re-treatment is that the pest control methods do not work as well as they should. Many pests can resist certain types of pesticides, and the chemicals that do work can lose their effectiveness over time. It is a good idea to have regular re-treatments done by a qualified exterminator in order to keep the pest population under control.
Before any pest control treatment, it is a good idea to thoroughly clean your home. This will remove any food sources that may attract pests and it will also help to eliminate their nesting areas. Make sure to dispose of any uncovered foods and to clean all counters and kitchen areas. It is also a good idea to store any dishes, utensils, and other items that are normally on your counters. This will help to prevent them from being sprayed with pest control chemicals during the treatment.
It is also a good idea to clean up any clutter, as pests can use it for shelter and as hiding places. This will also prevent the chemicals used in a pest control treatment from being rubbed off by your belongings or by children and pets.
The final thing that you should do to help keep the pests away is to seal any cracks, crevices, or leaks in your home. Leaks are a major incentive for pests to enter your home and can lead to serious water damage. It is important to have these fixed as soon as possible to prevent unwanted guests from entering your home.
Pest control can be a very frustrating experience, but it is important to know what to do in order to prevent pests from reappearing after treatment.
