Cazenovia, NY Pest Control

Trusted Pest Control Solutions In Cazenovia, NY

There are many ways that you deter pest activity in your home without really thinking about it. Your presence is the first way you deter pests. Many pests prefer secluded spaces. Another way you deter pest problems is by raking leaves. When you rake your leaves, you remove a habitat that is attractive to moisture pests and you reduce the number of pests in the soil next to your home. Join us as we look at more of these natural ways you can deter pest infestations in Cazenovia and learn how Madison County pest control can help you get rid of pest problems when they arise.

Home Pest Control In Cazenovia, NY

Your home needs general maintenance. Much of the maintenance you do has the side benefit of keeping pests out of your home.

  • When you weatherproof your home, your weatherstripping and door sweeps prevent pest entry.

  • When you clean your gutters, you don't just prevent wood rot, you make your home resistant to wood-damaging pests and moisture pests.

  • When you seal gaps around pipes and wire conduits, you keep rainwater and moisture out. This works to prevent mold and mildew and also creates a physical barrier to keep pests out.

  • When you trim your landscaping, you don't just increase your curb appeal, you make it less desirable for certain pests.

Do you see how it works? There are many ways you deter pests simply by taking care of your home. In most cases, this is all that is needed to keep pests out. But, when pests become a problem, targeted methods of residential pest control may be needed. Some of the methods we use at Sweeney’s Pest Elimination are:

  • Appropriately selected baits

  • Traps for the humane removal of wildlife

  • Targeted treatments to prevent insect development or reproduction

  • Targeted applications of insecticides, such as treating carpenter bee holes or addressing bed bugs hidden in structural voids or behind baseboards

  • Targeted treatments to repel pests

Along with the targeted use of control products, we may also perform some maintenance jobs such as exclusion work. Maintenance offers a long-term solution for pests and our goal is always to solve problems as permanently as possible.

How To Keep Wasps & Hornets Away From Your Cazenovia Yard

All hornets are wasps. When talking about wasps and hornets, it is important to understand this distinction. As wasps, hornets behave in similar patterns. There are primarily two ways wasps will live on your property. They'll create aerial nests or they'll create void nests.

  • Paper wasps and other wasps that create aerial nests can be deterred by addressing their paper-like nests in the spring. If you catch these nests early, you can simply knock them down during the day and solve your problem before it starts.

  • Yellow jackets and other wasps that create nests in voids can be deterred in two ways. Use a caulking gun to seal gaps in the structures on your property to keep these wasps out. Once you've done that, inspect your yard for ground holes and fill them in. Yellow jackets aren't digger wasps. They won't create holes to nest in. They take advantage of holes that already exist.

If you find a fully developed paper wasp nest, or you see yellow jacket activity near the ground, contact Sweeney Pest for a wasp control treatment. Addressing a wasp nest on your own can be a painful mistake.

Why Cockroach Prevention Matters For Cazenovia Homeowners

In keeping with our goal of providing long-lasting and sustainable solutions to pest problems in Cazenovia, we often give advice regarding pest prevention and risk mitigation. One pest problem you should definitely work to prevent is a cockroach infestation. Roaches are implicated in the spread of more than 33 kinds of harmful bacteria, such as Salmonella and E. coli. They are linked to more than seven human pathogens and at least six parasites. If all of that isn't bad enough, they have been found to increase hospitalizations for asthma-related symptoms.

Here are our best suggestions for preventing cockroach infestations in Cazenovia:

  • Stay on top of yard work.

  • Clean up pet waste in your yard regularly.

  • Routinely deodorize trash receptacles.

  • Seal gaps and cracks in your exterior.

  • Replace weatherstripping or door sweeps to create a complete seal.

  • Repair damaged screens.

  • Seal around window and door frames, wire conduits, and water pipes.
