It’s a well-known fact that different types of pest infestations obviously require different types of techniques as well as in any other area of the world.
Types of Pest Infestations That Are Often Found
There are a number of different pests that tend to be the most problematic when it comes to home infestations in the area of Rockford. The most prevalent types of pests in the area are termites, ants, roaches, spiders, pantry pests, fleas and/or ticks, and rodents.
Termites live in wood or in soil, depending on the type, but they both infest the wood of structures. Some ants live indoors, while others live outdoors and each must be treated accordingly. The most common roach infestations are by the indoor-dwelling roach species, but there are species that live outdoors as well. Pantry pests often infest certain food products, and spiders tend to infest mainly attic and basement areas. Fleas infest carpets and rugs and lay eggs in the fibers, and ticks can hide their eggs in cracks and crevices.
Different Techniques for Pest Control
Drywood termites and subterranean termites are different species of termites; therefore, they require different treatment methods. The best treatment for dry wood termites is to fumigate the structures and/or infested objects or to inject XT2000 Organic Orange Oil Plus in the wood’s galleries. For subterranean termites, the oil application of Termidor termiticide, a residual insecticide, works best for termite pest control in Rockford.
Roaches are best dealt with by completely eliminating their habitat, access to spaces like cupboards and drawers, and professionally inspecting all areas in order to locate and get rid of all hidden egg capsules. Pantry pests are usually easily eliminated by throwing out the infested food products. Fleas live in carpet, so the carpet must be chemically treated. Vacuuming helps to hatch the eggs and kill the emerging young fleas. For tick infestations, residual pyrethroid should be applied to cracks and crevices where they hide eggs, and sometimes outside to the turf and foliage around the perimeter.
