Andover Weevil Extermination
Weevils are among the smallest of household pests that can invade a Massachusetts home during any time of the year. While these tiny insects may be hard to see, they can reproduce quickly and lead to a major infestation. Because weevils are attracted to food, which they use for both sustenance and as a nest for their eggs, they tend to be found most often in kitchen cabinets and pantries. Although these little critters may cause a person to run screaming for the disinfectant spray, they can often be found in the cleanest of homes as they are carried in through groceries and other food items. However, if a person finds that they have a weevil infestation, then there are a few things they can do to eliminate their problem.
The best thing a person can do to avoid a weevil infestation is to practice a few preventative methods. First, a person should always be careful to inspect the items that they bring into their home. Weevils can sneak into the smallest of cracks. It is sometimes possible to see them through clear packaging or through holes in cardboard boxes. Additionally, it is important to clean out the kitchen and pantry on a regular basis in order to ensure that there is not a weevil infestation. If a food item is found containing weevils, then it should be thrown out. Then, shelves should be wiped down, and all cracks and corners should be thoroughly vacuumed.

Once an infestation has occurred, then homeowners can try several methods to eliminate the problem. First, any infested items should be tossed. Then, items that are not infested should be placed into sealed containers or plastic bags as a preventative method. While many people may try to freeze or kill the weevils with heat, this is usually ineffective for eliminating a wide spread problem. Additionally, weevils are often very difficult to see. For this reason, an infestation may be more serious that a homeowner may be led to believe at first sight. The best thing to do when first finding a weevil is to contact us for a free quote.
