You can control pests in your own home as you change your own habits or make repairs to your own home, but if you live in a duplex or townhouse, it can be difficult to control pests. You can't control what happens in the neighboring attached home — they may not like you going to their side of the yard to clean, make repairs or set traps. To help protect your home from rodents when you live in a duplex or townhouse, there are a few things you can do.
Your favorite tree in your yard is infested with termites and you can't quite handle getting it removed or treating it with harsh chemicals. Or you may want to treat it yourself to save money. Unfortunately, waiting on professional treatment may threaten you in many ways. How Termites in Your Favorite Tree Threatens You Watching your favorite tree die due to termites is a painful situation and is one that may also be fairly dangerous.
Mice and other rodents can be challenging to kill when they get into your home. Evolution has taught them to evade common traps and poisons, and poisoning them is effective but puts children and pets at risk. This is not even to mention that dead mice decaying in the walls where you can't get to them just isn't a pleasant experience for anyone with a sense of smell. In addition to poisons, glue board traps do work well but they are a problem if you aren't comfortable dispatching the stuck rodents.
Rabbits are a wild animal, but some species, such as the Rex, are common domesticated rabbits that people own as pets. Rabbits are known for their breeding skills, being able to become pregnant again even moments after just giving birth to their young. Rabbits may be cute, but they can also be destructive. When you have rabbits on your land, they tear up gardens, dig up grass looking for food, and can grow in numbers so large you can't contain them.
Although spiders don't wreak as much havoc on your home and landscape as other pests (like rats or mice) might, they can pose a serious risk to the health and safety of your family. Many varieties of spiders are venomous. A spider bite can be extremely dangerous, especially for those who have a compromised immune system, children, or the elderly. Keeping spiders out of your home with the following tips will ensure that your family members will be protected against the potential dangers of a spider bite in the future.
