Pantry pests are a major nuisance when they infest your home in Wisconsin. Not only are bugs in your food disgusting, they are also difficult to get rid of. And with many homeowners turning to spring cleaning projects this month, we wanted to make sure you know about common Wisconsin pantry pests before you go ahead and start cleaning the kitchen cabinets and food pantry.
Ah yes, with the New Year here we get to wipe the slate clean and start over. Many of us decide on some resolutions that will help to create a happier and healthier lifestyle from losing a few pounds to creating a healthier, more organized home. And though we aren’t experts in weight loss or fitness, here at Wil-Kil Pest Control we do know a little something about pests and how they can have a negative effect on the health of your family and home.
If you are one of those who sticks to your holidays traditions of burning the yule log, cutting down your own tree or hanging fresh Evergreens around the home for the wonderful scent then we wanted to remind you to watch out for pest sightings. Unfortunately, spiders, mice and other pests can quickly become part of your holiday traditions if you are not careful when bringing in those “real” decorations.
Picnics always make great memories. The time spent with family and friends enjoying some great food and conversation outdoors is priceless. But those memories can quickly turn sour if you encounter stinging insects including bees, wasps, hornets and yellow jackets.
With the start of the New Year in Madison, Milwaukee and surrounding areas of Wisconsin, it is time to make your resolutions. This year, focus on resolutions that will benefit you and your family by creating a pest free home.
Having a pet in your home comes with a lot of responsibilities, but one that most people don’t think about is protecting the health of your pets from the methods used in your home to eradicate pests like spiders, flies, ants and rodents. Pet safe pest control is important to keep in mind, because your pets are susceptible to pesticide chemicals the same way that humans are susceptible. At Wil-Kil Pest Control, we understand that the safety of your family and your pets is very important to you, and it’s important to us too. We want to help protect your home and family from invading pests through pet safe pest control techniques, and that is why we employ the use of Integrated Pest Management techniques.
If you’ve ever opened a cupboard in your home and come face to face with a little mouse, you probably realize that setting mice traps to catch these annoying pests is not enough. Even as you empty one successful trap, there could still be more of these rodents wandering through your cupboards, under your floors and in your attic. To completely eliminate mice and prevent new rodent activity, it is absolutely necessary to correct the conditions in and around your home that may invite the entry of these pesky creatures.
