Residential Pest Control In Ridge

Home pest control in Ridge is something many property owners think they can handle on their own. However, keeping pests out of your home in our area is much more challenging than you might imagine. 
We’ve got a plethora of pests that would just love to invade our homes and yards. Area property owners have a lot of different pests to worry about, including: 

  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Birds
  • Rodents
  • Mosquitoes
  • Wildlife
  • Ticks
  • Termites

Aside from the sheer volume of pests trying to get indoors, homeowners are often ill-equipped to handle even small pest invasions. Store-bought products are woefully inadequate, and untrained eyes often don’t catch the early signs of infestation. That’s why the best thing you can do to protect your home is call the experts here at Mike's Pest and Termite Control!
Our visits always begin with a conversation about what you’re experiencing and a top-to-bottom inspection to find pest hideouts and conducive conditions. From there, we’ll customize your treatment plan so you get exactly the services you need.

Prevention Is Key To Effective Spider Control In Ridge

Spider prevention is the most important component of spider control. The good news is that you only have to do one thing to keep spiders out of your home. The bad news is that one thing is preventing their prey from invading your space, which is no walk in the park. 

Spiders don’t have much reason to invade our homes unless they are already infested with prey pests these predatory arachnids love to feed on, like cockroaches, flies, moths, and more. If you have an infestation of this prey, spiders will come running. 

Unfortunately, since spiders breed by laying sacs full of hundreds of offspring, all of which hatch at the same time, once you have a spider infestation inside your home, only local spider control experts can fully eliminate it. Don’t waste your time and money on DIY solutions. Just call the pros at Mike’s Pest and Termite Control!

Natural Ways To Keep Rodents Away From Your Ridge Home

Keeping rodents away from your home doesn’t have to be a hassle. A few easy lifestyle changes can make your home a much less inviting place for them. Take measures like:

  • Store all pantry foods in airtight containers. 
  • Tightly cover all indoor and outdoor garbage cans. 
  • Never leave pet food or bowls sitting out. 
  • Clean up right after meals and don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink. 
  • Cover all construction gaps in your home with wire rodent mesh. 

Taking these measures can help encourage rodents to move on from your home by making it too inconvenient for them to access food and shelter. However, sometimes, even these measures are not enough. 

If this is the case, you should never attempt to get rid of rodents yourself. Trying to eradicate rodent nests can get you bitten, as these wild animals will defend themselves. It may also expose you to their disease-ridden droppings, not to mention the products you will be able to purchase at the store cannot keep up with rodents’ speedy breeding. 

The only way to truly eliminate rats and mice from your home is to call your friendly neighborhood rodent exterminators. Mike's Pest and Termite Control can help you rid your home of these disgusting and destructive pests for good!

Call Us For Effective Stinging Insect Control In Ridge

Getting rid of stinging insects is a particularly dangerous aspect of pest control because bees and wasps can be aggressive. Some wasps are docile, but some social wasps will swarm at the drop of a hat. If you trigger a swarm, wasps may show up by the thousands, stinging as many times as it takes to chase you away from their nests. 

Certain wasps, like yellow jackets or hornets, will even give chase. That’s why a wasp attack can result in dozens or even hundreds of stings. Bees pose a sting risk as well, although they’re less likely to swarm and many types of bees don’t sting repeatedly.  

Bee and wasp removal requires special safety gear and training to prevent stings. Here at Mike's Pest and Termite Control, we’ve got the equipment and the know-how to remove potentially dangerous stinging insects from your property. So don’t try to guess if the insect buzzing around your home is a docile paper wasp or a violent yellow jacket. Just give us a call or visit our contact page to schedule your inspection and service today!
