The company also conducts inspections to help homeowners identify the specific types of pests that live around their homes. It helps homeowners understand the pests’ needs and explains ways to keep them away from the property.
For example, rove beetles feed on decaying organic matter and can be found near homes in mulch and soil. They have slender bodies and short front wings that expose six to seven segments of their abdomens. They also angle their abdomen tips upward when running or startled. To avoid rove beetles, homeowners can remove any rotting organic material that may attract them and seal cracks and openings around the home’s foundation.
Rove Pest Control services both the interior and exterior of homes and businesses. Its treatments cover a wide range of insects, arachnids, and rodents, as well as wood-destroying organisms.
The best way to prevent pests is to limit their access to your home. This means removing food sources, fixing leaks, and repairing cracks. It also means limiting places where water collects around the house such as tires, caps, toys, and dishes, and adjusting landscaping to avoid consistent puddles.
Another preventative measure is keeping garbage bins away from the house and sealed. Bees and wasps are attracted to sugary substances in trash cans, so this simple step reduces a significant food source for them. It is also a good idea to trim and remove excessive vegetation near the house because mosquitoes breed in dense, crowded grass. And finally, reducing the number of places that can provide harborage for termites like large bushes, stacked firewood and hollow tree stumps can help prevent them from entering your home.
Pest Control Treatment
Rove Pest Control has specific treatment options for a variety of pests including ants, bees, wasps, fleas, flies, hornets, and spiders. It also treats for tree and shrub pests like adelgids, eucalyptus long-horned borer larvae, oak leaf beetles, pine tip moth larvae, spruce tip moth larvae, sycamore leaf beetles, sawfly larvae, and soft scales (not available in Michigan).
Roving specialists will inspect the property to identify any possible points of entry for rodents and other insects that can make their way into homes. Then, a plan will be developed to prevent pests from getting in through those areas.
Oftentimes pests like mice will enter homes through tiny openings, such as cracks and crevices, and wall voids. A pest exclusion professional can seal these tiny holes to keep rodents and other unwanted pests out. They can also add weather stripping to doors, install door sweeps, and more to keep pests out.
Rove Pest Control uses a variety of methods to exclude pests from homes and businesses. This includes rodent exclusion, which involves sealing cracks and crevices around the house. This prevents pests from entering the home and also reduces the need for other treatments such as baiting and trapping.
Sanitation and food reduction are also important components of rodent control. Rove Pest Control works with homeowners to eliminate supplemental food sources and reduce rodent population growth. This helps to limit the number of mice that enter homes and businesses.
The company also offers preventive pest control for a variety of pests including ants, spiders, box elder bugs, bed bugs, crickets, earwigs, fleas, silverfish, and cockroaches. Its ant treatment is a combination of baiting and spraying, while its mosquito control involves a combination of a barrier spray, yard treatment, and traps. Rove Pest Control also treats for pests that attack trees, shrubs, and flowers through a soil injection treatment.
