You may never give too much thought to the possibility of developing a snail or slug infestation but this can occur whenever there are too many inside your home. You might not recognize them but you might see the slug or snails trail.
A Snail Infestation
They are not usually a threat to humans but they are a threat to plants since this is what they like to feed on. The damages that you might find on your plants are one of the many ways that a snail infestation can be detected.
They can become troublesome once inside your home. They can be even more so when they are in your garden or flowerbeds. You can count on Nassau County Pest Control to get rid of this problem for you, that is if this problem is unbearable.
Our New York exterminators will begin by getting rid of the places they like to hide like firewood, flowerpots, lumber, planters and stones. They generally like damp hiding spaces. In fact, this is something that homeowners can do to prevent an infestation of slugs and snails.
If firewood is near your home, remove it and store it off the ground. If you have planters and pots, hang them up instead of sitting them on the ground. Get rid of any lumber or stones that you might have that can develop moisture beneath them.
If you do not have doors that close completely, then you might notice more and more slugs inside your home. Weather stripping can prevent this from occurring.
Our exterminators might even suggest that you have a dehumidifier installed in your damp basement to prevent slugs from finding their way into your home. As you can see, we are more than happy to assist but there are also things that you can do to control this type of infestation from developing.
