Home Pest Control
Gimasur Pest Control in Antequera
Private homes, flats and houses, and communities of owners are attacked by common pests such as rodents, termites, cockroaches, wasps, mosquitoes and other crawling or flying insects.
Some neighbours find it distasteful, others have phobias about bugs, even health problems. Any of these aspects associated with pests can be solved if the right measures are taken. These measures should always be taken by a Pest Control Company, as they have the knowledge, techniques, products and qualified personnel to deal with this type of situation.
Domestic pests can be varied and invade even the cleanest of homes. The origin of each pest can be diverse, although all share the capacity to undermine the health of the home (transmitting diseases and causing allergies) and produce damage to material components of our habitat such as structures, furniture, water pipes or electrical conduits.
In the face of an infestation in the home, many people do not know how to deal with the problem. It is common to try to remedy it with products from supermarkets and shops, which often facilitate the proliferation and establishment of the pest, since these products are not for professional use (they have a different chemical composition). In addition to product specialisation, controlling a pest requires species-specific knowledge (life cycle, settlement, diet, etc.) as a prerequisite for adopting an effective and targeted control plan.
That is why it will always be a good idea to turn to a professional pest control company such as Gimasur, which has the knowledge, techniques and means to control pests in homes effectively.
Common pests in private homes
A home can be plagued by crawling insects (blonde cockroaches, black and American cockroaches, bedbugs, ants, fleas, spiders, flies, mosquitoes, silverfish, etc.), xylophages (termites and woodworm) and rodents (sewer rats and mice), just like homeowners’ associations.
Community of neighbors
The health and hygiene of farms is a priority for community of neighbors and can often be complicated by the presence of pests. On many occasions, the first sign of a farm infestation appears when a homeowner observes that he or she has an individual (cockroach, ant, rodent) in the house. However, most of the time, on inspection, it is discovered that the origin of the infestation is not in the house itself, but in the community.
Indeed, community of neighbors (as buildings) are exposed to pest infestations because pests find access to housing, food and shelter there. Thus, hiring a comprehensive pest control programme in a building community will help to significantly reduce the number of cockroach and rodent infestations in the building’s dwellings.
Common pests in community of neighbors
The common and interior areas of the communities include basements, boiler rooms, storage rooms, garages and sewage systems.
These areas tend to be particularly affected by the American cockroach (Periplaneta americana) and the black cockroach (Blatta orientalis), and outbreaks can be found in drains and sewers. The environmental conditions of these sites, normally stable throughout the year, make them an ideal habitat in which to establish themselves. With the arrival of good weather they go outside. Thus, in the summer season it is common to see them go out into the courtyards, first floors, doorways and garden areas of the estate.
In addition to the black and American cockroaches, homeowners’ associations are often affected by rodents (mice and rats). The appearance of rodents is usually due to a nearby environment suitable for this species, although their access to homes or farms can be facilitated by structural faults or holes that allow them to pass through
Similarly, it is common for communities of owners who have garden areas such as flowerbeds, swimming pools, flower beds or other gardens, to suffer from plagues of ants, fleas and ticks. The latter two if there is the continuous presence of domestic animals such as colonies of cats and dogs. Of the urban ants, the presence of the pharaoh ant (Monomorium pharaonis), the argentine ant (Linepithema humile) and the black ant (Lasius niger) stands out. In fact, these are the three species of ant which have the greatest incidence in our environment and which are most likely to appear in farm gardens.
Treatments in community of neighbors
In the event of any pest, the professional must carry out an initial inspection. The first objective of an inspection will be to identify the pest in homes, as the type of pest will determine the appropriate treatment. Once the pest has been identified, the inspection will aim to establish the focuses of activity or areas with the highest population (of insects or rodents), discover the entry routes that have facilitated access to individuals (drainage networks, air chambers, grilles, perimeter, chimneys, etc.) and study the environment in case corrective measures need to be implemented or the risk of infestation reduced.
Once the initial inspection protocol has been carried out, a personalised pest prevention and control programme will be designed in accordance with the needs and specificities of each community, as well as a maintenance plan.
Each situation will require personalised procedures, according to what is detected in the diagnosis or inspection, prevention and control programme, and maintenance plan.
