Don’t Let Earwigs, Beetles, and Crickets Bug You This March: Tips from Preferred Pest Control in Orange County
As spring approaches in Orange County, California, pests are starting to emerge from their winter hiding places. March is a crucial time to take preventative measures against common pests such as earwigs, beetles, and crickets, before they have a chance to infest your home or business. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at these pests and what you can do to keep them at bay with the help of Preferred Pest Control.
Earwigs Earwigs are a common pest in Southern California, and March marks the beginning of their breeding season. These insects are attracted to moist environments, such as damp soil or mulch, and can often be found near foundations or in crawl spaces. If left unchecked, earwigs can quickly multiply and cause damage to plants and gardens.
To prevent an earwig infestation, it’s important to keep your property clean and dry. Remove any piles of leaves or debris that may be attracting earwigs, and make sure to keep your gutters clean and well-maintained. If you do notice earwigs around your property, it’s important to act quickly before they have a chance to breed. Preferred Pest Control offers effective earwig control services that are tailored to the unique needs of your property.
Beetles Beetles are another common pest that can become more active in March. These insects can cause damage to plants, crops, and stored food products. Some of the most common types of beetles in Orange County include carpet beetles, powderpost beetles, and wood-boring beetles.
To prevent a beetle infestation, it’s important to keep your property clean and well-maintained. Store food products in sealed containers and dispose of any infested materials promptly. If you notice signs of a beetle infestation, such as small holes in fabric or wood, contact Preferred Pest Control for targeted treatment options. Our team will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to identify the type of beetle and the extent of the infestation, and develop a customized treatment plan to eliminate the problem.
Crickets Crickets are another common pest that can become more active in March. These insects are attracted to warm, humid environments and can often be found in basements, crawl spaces, and other areas of the home or business. They can be particularly noisy, making it difficult to sleep or concentrate.
To prevent a cricket infestation, it’s important to keep your property dry and well-ventilated. Seal any cracks or openings in your foundation or walls to prevent crickets from entering your property. If you do notice crickets around your property, contact Preferred Pest Control for targeted treatment options. Our team will conduct a thorough inspection of your property.
