How To Best Utilize Your Mouse Traps

When you have mice in your home, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Mice breed prolifically and can cause a lot of damage, both to your house and your food supply. If you've struggled to eliminate the mice in your homes with mouse traps, there's a good chance you haven't been implementing them properly. Common High Traffic Areas The best way to successfully deploy your mouse traps is to set them in high-traffic areas of your home. These areas are usually easy to spot: if you've seen a mouse in an area, it's undoubtedly a high-traffic area. Common high-traffic areas include: Cupboards near food In holes near walls Near basements Placing your traps near these areas (in multiple locations) makes it more likely that mice will stumble into your traps.

Winter Pest Control is Vital!

As the temperatures drop and winter sets in, it's tempting to think that there's little you can do to control the pests in your home. This is a huge mistake: pests can still be hugely active in the winter months, trying to wait out the cold months until they can get active again in the warmer spring and summer months. In fact, there's a strong chance that certain pests, such as mice and rats, will actually start flooding your house during the cold winter months. They are attracted to the heat of your home and are clever enough to find ways inside. And once there, they'll be so comfortable, they might never leave. So what can you do to stop them on your own? Sadly, very little. Mouse traps won't do much to catch the huge rodent invasion you may get in the winter. You'll probably get a handful of mice,...

Are Venomous Spiders a Danger to Your Pets?

Whether you are a cat person, a dog person, a bird person, or some other special variety of pet person, there's no denying that you cherish your pets as you do your own family--perhaps even more so! Because you cherish your pets, you want to keep them safe from anything that might harm them, including venomous spiders such as the Black Widow and the Brown Recluse. Are such spiders really a danger to pets? Are Venomous Spiders a Danger to Your Pets? The short answer is yes. In fact, because most household pets are relatively small, they are even more strongly affected by spider bites than humans are. Because of that, they should be kept away from Black Widows, Brown Recluse, Hobo Spiders, and Tarantulas.  According to the experts over at Vet Street, you can mitigate the danger by taking several steps. First always keep a friendly distance from spiders when you encounter them out of doors. Small animals...

Three Horrifying Spider Control Fails

Most of us like to think that we are more or less in control of the spider issue in our homes. Barring unforeseen infestations, we go about our daily lives with little to no fear of close encounters of the arachnid kind. These three stories, however, are a good reminder that the next spider control fail could be right around the corner for each of us. Three Horrifying Spider Control Fails Fail #1: Woman's Itchy Ear Caused by Spider Living in It - When a Chinese woman visited her doctor to consult with him about an itch she'd experienced in her ear for over five days, they were both in for big surprise: a spider had crawled into her ear canal and made his home there. Fearing the spider would bite her if he used tweezers to remove it, the doctor instead flushed the spider out with a saline solution.  Fail #2: Gift from Secret Admirer Leads to Spider...
