For homeowners in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest, the holiday to-do list can seem overwhelming, but with Christmas just a few short days away, as you stop and take a minute to review what is left to be done, you are feeling pretty good about this year’s progress. Shopping, done, wrapping, done, cleaning, done. The only real pressing chore left is holiday baking.
So Thanksgiving has come and gone, Black Friday is over and you have finally recuperated enough to make the annual trek up to the attic or out to the depths of your garage to pull out the dusty, old boxes of holiday decorations. In Kansas City, Topeka and all across Kansas and the United States, this is quite possibly the “most wonderful time of year” and although most of the holiday season is filled with laughter and good cheer, blood-curdling screams can be heard from miles away if you are not careful when you unpack your holiday decorations.
Bed bugs continue to be a prevalent pest problem in Kansas City, Topeka and throughout the U.S., and unfortunately any one can get them. Being notorious hitchhikers, bed bugs are often introduced into unsuspecting homes, apartment buildings and other multi-unit housing facilities on luggage, bags and even on people who’ve recently traveled. That’s because these biting insects are not a problem contained to just beds and have been detected in cabs and buses, on airplanes, and in hotel rooms; all places where travelers frequent. If you are gearing up for travel this holiday season and plan on staying in a hotel or other commercial lodging, you should be aware of bed bugs and more specifically where these pests are likely to be found.
Mice, although they may seem harmless, can actually be quite damaging and costly. Unfortunately, these pests have a tendency to head indoors every fall in search of food, water and shelter from the cooling weathers. According to the National Pest Management Association, millions of homes are invaded every winter by rodents; if you are one of the unlucky homeowners you should be worried and here are three reasons why.
