Monument CO Pest Control

Monument is a Colorado town located on Interstate 25, between Denver and Colorado Springs. It is part of El Paso County and has a population of under 8,000. It is a great place for outdoor recreation, as it borders the Pike National Forest and is close to Monument Rock and Palmer Lake, making it ideal for fishing, camping, and hiking.

Monument gets warm, rainy summers and cold, snowy winters. This may cause common pests to seek shelter indoors in a Monument home and businesses year round. This can be a rough situation for Monument homeowners.

Pests are annoying but they can also be destructive. Carpenter ants, beetles, and other bugs can contaminate food. Termites can eat the wood in your home and cause significant damage to the structure of your home. Ticks can attach to a person and burrow under their skin, causing diseases such as Lyme disease.

Our Pest Control Services Maintenance Packages in Monument, CO

At Mug-a-Bug Pest & Termite Control, we offer three main packages to help your home and business stay pest free:

  1. Monthly. This option starts at $50. This service is primarily for commercial accounts that require monthly maintenance. 
  2. Bimonthly. This option starts at $85. This is primarily for residential customers. We recommend this service because the products that we use typically have a residual effect that lasts between 45 and 60 days. The customer will be due for their next regularly scheduled treatment normally within the next week or two.
  3. Quarterly. This option starts at $105. It is for customers who have a higher tolerance threshold. These customers are serviced every 90 days, so there may be a 30-day period where they will not have any active product in their home, as it gets worn off over time.

Pest Control Tips

Before you call the professionals, here are some things you can do to keep your home in tip-top shape to avoid pest infestations:

  • Maintain cleanliness. Keep your home clean and tidy, as pests are attracted to food debris, spills, and clutter. Regularly vacuum carpets and floors, wipe down surfaces, and promptly clean up food spills.
  • Store food properly. Keep food in sealed containers made of glass or plastic to prevent pests like ants, cockroaches, and rodents from accessing it. This includes both pantry items and pet food.
  • Dispose of garbage properly. Make sure your garbage bins have tight-fitting lids and empty them regularly. Keep outdoor garbage bins away from the house to reduce the likelihood of pests finding their way indoors.
  • Seal entry points. Inspect your home for any cracks, gaps, or openings that pests could use to enter. Seal these entry points with caulk or weather stripping to prevent pests from getting inside.
  • Remove standing water. Pests, such as mosquitoes and cockroaches, are attracted to standing water. Eliminate any sources of standing water around your home, such as clogged gutters, leaky pipes, or stagnant ponds.
  • Trim vegetation. Trim back trees, bushes, and shrubs that are close to your home, as pests like rodents and insects can use them as pathways to access your house.
  • Perform regular inspections. Conduct regular inspections of your home to identify any signs of pest activity, such as droppings, chew marks, or nests. Early detection can help prevent infestations from becoming severe.
  • Keep up with routine maintenance. Keep up with routine home maintenance tasks, such as repairing leaky pipes, fixing screens on windows and doors, and replacing damaged weather stripping. These steps will help prevent pests from entering your home.
  • Use natural repellents. Consider using natural pest repellents like peppermint oil, vinegar, or diatomaceous earth to deter pests.
