It is that time of year again, once it starts getting cold outside everyone is excited for everything fall brings. Unfortunately, it also brings many uninvited pests into your home. Jonathan Sargent, founder of Sargent Pest Solutions, wants to help prepare you for this inevitable invasion. Sargent received his masters in Entomology from Clemson University and is a genuine “bug guy” who would love the opportunity to share his knowledge with the community, helping to keep homes pest-free.
Doors, windows, firewood, and house plants are all things Jonathan Sargent says to be aware of if you are experiencing an influx of bugs in your house this season. He has lots of helpful tips to help avoid having to call your local pest management professional because of a pest problem. “All firewood, except what you know you will use in the next couple days, should be stored at least 20-25 feet away from your home. Spiders, mice, and cockroaches may make their homes in stacked firewood,” said Sargent when asked what are some preventative measures to avoid having pests in homes this fall.
“The most common call we get this time of the year is for the dreaded Palmetto bug. While it isn't a real bug, it usually refers to the larger cockroaches so common in our area. A helpful tip for keeping these pests away is to avoid leaving food out all night. Even if it’s just a little bit, the cockroaches will find it and come back with their friends,” said Sargent when asked about the worst pest for this time of the year. Sargent Pest Solutions provides services for Upstate South Carolina, focusing in Greenville, Mauldin, Simpsonville, Taylors, Greer, Fountain Inn, Easley, and Clemson.
