Summer is coming…

Here at Procare we are happy to see winter behind us! It’s now October and we know the warmer days ahead will bring an increase in pest activity. A tailored pest control treatment from Procare will help eliminate these unwanted visitors from your home, workplace or rental property. We can even treat your vehicle or campervan to keep it pest free too. If you don’t want issues with ants, fleas, spiders, flies, cockroaches or rodents we can help. We also offer steam cleaning services for carpets and upholstery.

If you haven’t already booked in your treatment, call our friendly staff on 0800 776 770.

Spring/Summer is our busiest time of year so we encourage you to make a booking early to avoid missing out on your preferred day and time. We look forward to hearing from you and wish you all a great summer ahead.

Top Tip for Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are hardy insects!

TOP TIPS for prevention:

A clean house – especially the kitchen – is key to cockroach prevention and control.

Don’t let dishes pile up or leave food spillages on the floor or around appliances. Clean any food immediately so cockroaches and other pests have nothing to feed on.

Cockroaches are drawn to warm areas, eg behind dishwashers/fridges so keep these areas clean also.

Contact a professional if you suspect an infestation.

 

Top Tip for Rodent Control

Rodent Control

Rodents are seeking shelter from the cold and our warm homes are cosy for them!

TOP TIPS: Store any firewood at least 5m away from your home

Seal cracks and holes around the home to prevent rodents entering

Keep storage sheds and garages clear and organised – rodents love hiding in clutter, store boxes off the floor

Contact a professional if you suspect an infestation

 

Winter is here!

Winter has well and truly arrived….make sure rats and mice don’t arrive at your house this season. It’s a good time to clear gardens and outdoor areas of debris. Less clutter, less places to hide!
