Frequently Asked Questions About Garage Pest Control

The most effective way to keep bugs out of your garage is to eliminate the things that attract them. This two-pronged approach involves keeping your garage clean and dry, and sealing up any potential entry points.

Here’s a breakdown:

  • Clean and Dry: Declutter your garage to remove hiding spots and eliminate food sources like crumbs or spills. Address any moisture issues, as many bugs are drawn to damp environments.
  • Seal Entry Points: Inspect your garage for cracks around windows, doors, and where utility lines enter. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal these gaps and prevent bugs from sneaking in.

Keep Mice Out! Mice love sneaking into garages. For ultimate protection, install our Hern’s Garage Lower Corner Pest Shield. This metal barrier blocks entry points at the foundation, sealing a common rodent entry spot. Combine the shield with regular cleaning and Hern’s Pest Control’s expertise for a rodent-free garage!

Bug bombs, also known as foggers, can be used in garages, but with some limitations:

  • Limited Effectiveness: Bug bombs only kill pests they directly contact. They won’t reach insects hiding in cracks, walls, or behind objects.
  • Safety Concerns: Garages often contain flammable materials like paint or gasoline. Bug bombs use propellants that can be a fire hazard.

For these reasons, targeted approaches are usually more effective for garages. Consider contacting Hern’s Pest Control for a professional solution that tackles the specific pest problem in your garage.

To keep roaches out of your garage, focus on a two-pronged attack: eliminate attractants and seal entry points.

  • Starve them out: Roaches love moisture and food sources like crumbs, spills, and pet food. Regularly sweep, clean up spills, and store food in sealed containers.
  • Seal them out: Inspect cracks around doors, windows, and utility lines. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal these gaps and prevent roaches from entering.

By following these steps, you can create a less hospitable environment for roaches and discourage them from taking up residence in your garage. For best results, consult Hern’s Pest Control for a professional inspection and targeted treatment plan if needed.
