Steps Potomac Homeowners Can Take to Avoid Spiders

Spiders are primarily attracted to properties that are plentiful with pests to eat, ideal conditions, and some shelter. In order for homeowners to keep spiders away, they must take a multifaceted approach to prevention. Here are some helpful steps that you can take:

  • Clear up the yard. A good place to start deterring spiders is the yard. Because they can hide in brush and piles of debris, be sure to eliminate all yard clutter. It’s also important to store firewood neatly and rake leaves before they collect. 
  • Address all moisture issues. Excess moisture can not only attract spiders but also their prey, like cockroaches, ants, and flies. Look for leaks both inside and outside of the home and fix any issues. Keep gutters clear and in good order and turn on dehumidifiers in areas like basements. 
  • Tidy up. Spiders can hide anywhere, as can their prey. Be sure to get rid of unnecessary piles of clutter and store seasonal clothing in plastic storage rather than cardboard boxes. Part of cleaning should also include being diligent about garbage removal and disinfecting to eliminate food residue. 
  • Fill in entry points. To actually keep spiders and other pests out, utilize products like door sweeps, weatherstripping, and caulk to address crevices and gaps around properties. 
  • Bring in reinforcements. Because spider prevention in Potomac can be complicated, the best solution is to call a trusted pest professional for routine service.

Everything You Want To Know About Mosquitoes In Potomac

Each spring, mosquitoes will start to appear around Potomac and this is no coincidence. They are seasonal pests that are attracted to the warmth and humidity that this time of year produces. Mosquitoes usually stick around throughout the fall or as conditions call for. The female mosquito is the one that bites you, because she needs your blood to reproduce. Factors like blood type, the presence of sweat or alcohol, and even the type of laundry detergent you use can impact whether or not mosquitoes will be attracted to you. The female mosquito then likely lays her eggs somewhere with standing water, like a bird bath or puddle.

It’s important to note that some mosquitoes do pose a health risk. While not every mosquito is capable of spreading the pathogens that cause West Nile virus or other illnesses, some are. Additionally, infected mosquitoes can be the source of heartworm in your dogs. To learn more about mosquito control in Potomac for your property, call Womack Pest Control today.

Three Sure Signs That Your Potomac Home Has A Cockroach Problem

A cockroach problem can be difficult to detect in your Potomac home because these pests are masters at hiding from people. Roaches are also primarily nocturnal and they rarely leave the area surrounding their food or water source. That said, these three signs might help you identify a cockroach infestation in your own home:

  1. Actual cockroaches. Finding roaches, whether they’re alive or dead, tends to be a very helpful indication of an outbreak. Small infestations usually contain a minimum of five members, while heavy infestations can easily contain over 20.
  2. The presence of byproducts. While living in your home, cockroaches will shed their skin during their molting process and they will also leave behind lots of fecal matter and eggshells. If you find any of these signs in your kitchen or bathroom, there are likely roaches not too far behind. 
  3. An unusual odor. Lastly, cockroaches emit a very strong and unpleasant stench through their pheromones. This musty smell is actually a signal to other roaches that your home is safe to invade.
