Home Pest Control In Canyon Lake, TX

There are many ways you can address pests. A great example of DIY pest maintenance is addressing gaps and holes in your house that pests use to get inside.

  • If an area of your home has some rotted wood, repairing or replacing the wood can help to create a physical barrier that keeps pests out. It will also remove an attractant that can inspire problems with wood-damaging pests.

  • If you have old weatherstripping or damaged door sweeps, replacing these will stop pests from crawling right inside.

  • If you have gaps around plumbing or wire conduits, a caulking gun can be used to seal these gaps up and keep pests out.

There are many things you can do that help to keep pests out of your home. Some of what you do can be taken care of by a residential pest control provider, like Pinnacle Pest Defense.

The Trick To Keeping Earwigs Off Your Canyon Lake Property

Earwigs have a scary reputation, but they only look scary. They don't bite, and a pinch from their black pincers won't break the skin or leave a mark. But that doesn't mean you want these scary-looking insects in your home or business. There are a few ways you can address an earwig problem.

  • Rake leaves and pick up sticks. Earwigs hide under organic debris and are drawn to the soil that has wood debris in it.

  • Move stacked wood and objects made of wood away from your exterior walls.

  • Use a caulking gun to seal gaps and holes and replace protective materials, such as weatherstripping and door sweeps.

  • Repair gutters and deal with clogs in your gutter system. Doing this will reduce perimeter moisture which is attractive to earwigs.

  • Address humidity on the interior of your home or business. Earwigs need environments that are humid in order to survive.

These are likely to be enough to stop earwigs. If more control is needed, or you don't have to do some or all of these steps, let us know. Contact Pinnacle Pest Defense and tell us about your earwig problem. We're here to help.

Are Scorpions In Canyon Lake Dangerous?

Bark scorpions can present a threat in Canyon Lake. In most cases, scorpion stings do not result in more than localized pain, but there is a risk of dangerous symptoms. You can mitigate the risk by using the tips provided for earwigs above. Bark scorpions are attracted to moist environments and organic debris and they get into homes and businesses through gaps and cracks.

Along with general pest maintenance, also be cautious around pools. Refrain from laying clothing or towels down near the pool. Hang them or drape them. If you do lay them down where scorpions can hide under them, shake your clothing, towels, and also footwear before using them. For the best control possible against scorpions and other pests, reach out to us for assistance.
