learn more about the bugs around you

Are you one of the two and a half million residents who call Nassau and Westchester counties home? That's a lot of people. But I'm sorry to tell you, bugs outnumber humans 312 to 1. It is no wonder they're driving us crazy in our New York homes. Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. Let's take a peek at the problem.

Why do bugs come in? There are a number of reasons that can send or draw household pests into your home. Here are just a few of them.

  • You're in there. There are a whole bunch of bugs, like mosquitoes, bed bugs, mites, lice, fleas and ticks, that eat blood. And, since you have blood, they want to be as near to you as possible.

  • Sweets. Who doesn't like a nice sweet snack? There are many pests, like ants, cockroaches, mice, rats, wasps, bees, flies and more, that want to be inside your home for the sweets.

  • Protein. Some bugs come into your home because you have other bugs living in your home. If you've cultivated a lovely population of flies, you are guaranteed to have more spiders.

  • Light. You would be surprised how many bugs are mesmerized by a light source. If you have lights on inside your home, and a flying pest can get to it, you'll have more bugs inside your home.

  • Saturated ground. Some pest aren't lured in, they are driven in. If you have centipedes, beetles and millipedes squeezing into your house, it may be due to heavy rains forcing them out of the ground.

  • Safety. Sometimes bugs and wildlife get into a home just because it is a safe place to be. We're talking about critters that harbor in tree knots, hollow logs and holes. Your home is just another place to hide.

  • Wet wood. Termites and other wood-destroying pests like wet, decaying or untreated wood.

How do I keep pests from coming in? There are a ton of pests in Nassau and Westchester counties and throughout New York, and they all have different reasons for coming in. So, how can you possibly keep them all out?

  • Seal your basement walls and exterior walls so it is more difficult.

  • Make sure your screens have no holes.

  • Inspect your door sweeps and weather stripping to be sure they are working.

  • Make sure your gutters work and that they aren't obstructed. Water damage will soften and rot the wood of your home.

  • Get year-round pest protection from Parkway Pest Services.

With properly sealed and protected walls, you will have fewer pests, guaranteed. When those pests start looking for a home to live in, they're going to choose the home with the easiest access. Make sure that home isn't yours.
