Pests in Coquitlam
Residents and businesses in Coquitlam are faced with a multitude of pests that are attracted to the area’s mild climate. In the summer residents may find many pests in the yard or garden. Ants are numerous and some of them try to move into the home for food or water. Fleas may come into the home on the family pet whereas stinging insects, like wasps and hornets are common in shrubs and trees. Homeowners may also find spiders in sheds, garages, and store rooms.
Wildlife also presents a problem for residents of Coquitlam. In the fall, many homeowners and businesses may discover rats or mice invading their buildings in order to find shelter or food. Throughout the year, squirrels may try to make nesting places in the attic, while larger animals like skunks and raccoons may forage around the house in search of food causing significant disruption to both homes and commercial buildings.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prevent insects from coming into my home?
There are several measures you can take to prevent insects from coming into your home. Reducing harbourage and breeding sites around your house is important, as this may reduce the risk of the insect population growing on your property. Practicing good waste/compost management can also naturally reduce the chances of pests being drawn indoors.
If any door or window screens are torn, it is important to repair or replace them to avoid creating additional entry points that insects can use to come indoors. You can also seal any cracks, crevices, or other openings around the exterior of the property to keep insects out. It is also important to keep windows and doors closed whenever possible during the summer in order to keep flies out.
In areas more prone to insect infestations, it is recommended to contact a licensed pest control company for professional expertise and assistance.
How do I get rid of raccoons permanently?
In order to get rid of raccoons on your property, it is important to utilize the following methods:
- Habitat Modification
Making small modifications to your property can be key when trying to get rid of raccoons. This can include using garbage and compost bins with fastened lids to remove potential food sources. It is important to avoid leaving pet food dishes outdoors and ensure that your yard and lawn(s) aren’t exposed to grubs.
- Exclusion Methods
You need to check for potential harbourage or nesting sites and close off access to ensure raccoons cannot get inside. You should also install screens on exposed spaces such as under decks, porches, and vents, as these areas can be ideal nesting spaces for raccoons. If you are looking to protect your garden, you can use raccoon fences which are commonly found at your local hardware store or garden center.
- Deterrent Tactics
Deterrent tactics can help reduce the risk of a raccoon infestation. These include the use of motion-detected floodlights, noisemaking systems such as alarms, and repellents to scare raccoons away from the property. It is important to note that deterrent tactics are only temporary until raccoons become conditioned to those methods.
What time of year is best for pest management?
When looking to assess the best time of year for pest management, it is important to remember that this will depend on the type of pest you are dealing with. Rodents, for example, tend to seek shelter and food sources indoors as the weather gets colder. Alternatively, if pests like bed bugs are already brought into your home, they can be active throughout the year. If your property is prone to pest infestations, it is important to have a licensed pest control company year-round to help keep pests out of your home.
When should I call pest management?
Identifying the right time to call a pest management company will depend on a number of factors including the type of pest in question and the severity of the infestation. Finding minor pest activity in your kitchen may not require a call to a pest control provider right away, but if that problem grows beyond what you can handle, then it is better to contact your local Orkin Canada branch for professional pest control near you.
