Pest control for the AZ area has to start from the family and then move to the community. The state services will come in when things get really out of hand. One of the things that can be done is to maintain the home correctly. This will remove the need for formal pest control measures even in a vulnerable area. For example the Phoenix pest control services will only come out when the family has failed to keep a lid on things.
Tips for a clean and orderly Arizona home
Trash cans must be sealed tightly. There are some metal ones that need a plastic bag to hold the rubbish. Organic waste is particularly prone to seeping through. If that happens then you need to clean the vessel with warm water and soap. Occasionally it might be a good idea to disinfect the trash can.
It is important that rubbish is dumped in the right place at the right time. An accumulation of putrid trash cans is an ideal place for pests such as rats. It is also a good idea to cut down any shrubs or branches that hang over the house. This will remove another haven for pests. If the land is owned by a neighbor then you need to first ask for permission before cutting down anything or else you might end up on “Judge Judy”.
