Martha Lake homeowners may easily find their properties infested with cockroaches due to the area’s seasonal conditions. But this isn't any ordinary pest. Cockroaches are very difficult to get rid of once you have them, and the dangers they pose while they’re in your home are serious. Their shed body parts have been known to instigate allergies and asthma in some individuals, and some people have reported increased anxiety due to the stigma that comes with having a cockroach problem. Unfortunately, this isn’t where the problems end. Cockroaches are responsible for the spread of gastrointestinal problems, salmonella, E. coli, dysentery, cholera, and typhoid fever. Don’t allow cockroaches to take over your Martha Lake home; contact Guard Pest Control today to learn more about how we’ll use safe Integrated Pest Management methods to keep cockroaches out of your home.

Expert Advice On Stinging Insect Control In Martha Lake

Stinging insects in Martha Lake can prove very dangerous for local homeowners, as they tend to sting when they feel threatened, which is often. And while many people keep them around for their ecological benefits, it often simply isn’t worth it. Here are a few tips to try in order to control their populations on your property:

  • Remove old nests.

  • Make sure that the wood around your property is either painted or treated with stain.

  • Consider what and where you plant, as greenery like cucumber, eucalyptus, citronella, and geranium, and rosemary are said to naturally repel stinging insects.

  • When hosting an outdoor gathering, be sure to keep food covered as well as the trash. Also, avoid letting the trash pile up.

  • Clean up any food spills, as stinging insects tend to seek sweets and meats.

  • Keep your yard free from debris like branches and hedge trimmings.

  • Try decorating with paper lanterns to act as nest decoys.

  • Call the professionals!

Don’t risk having a population of stinging insects on your property. Contact the pros at Guard Pest Control for safe methods of removal and prevention that you can trust today.

Martha Lake's Handy Handbook To Spider Identification

The spiders that you’re likely to encounter in Martha Lake can range from relatively harmless to very dangerous. Here are a few of the species you can expect to see and how to identify them:

  • Daddy-long-legs. Otherwise known as the cellar spider, daddy-long-legs have four sets of very long, spindly legs and they typically spend time in secluded, moist places like basements.

  • Wolf spiders. This large, chunky, furry spider is hard to miss with its distinctive exterior and big eyes. They do not spin webs, preferring to hunt prey, and tend to be anti-social creatures while they hunt for food.

  • Hobo spiders. With its light brown spindly legs and dark brown abdomen, the hobo spider is commonly found in Martha Lake's basements, garages, and other damp and dark places.
