What to Do If You Notice a Pest Problem
You might realize that you have a pest infestation when you see little creatures scurrying in or around your house. However, you might not see insects or rodents on your property, but that doesn't mean you don't have an issue.
Various signs can indicate that you have a pest problem. These include:
- Scratching or scurrying sounds around your property,
- Gnawed food packages,
- Webs and nests around your home, and
- Rodent droppings.
If there are any indications that you're sharing your home with unwanted insects or rodents, you can take a few steps to keep them from taking over.
Things you can do include:
- Sealing any gaps around windows or holes leading from the inside of your home to outside
- Repairing or replacing ripped or missing screens
- Fixing water leaks
- Taking out your trash regularly
These methods can keep pests from coming into your home, but they won't necessarily stop the problem altogether. For more long-term solutions, get help from a pest control expert.
The Benefits of Hiring a Professional
You can purchase over-the-counter pest solutions to treat your insect or rodent problem. However, this isn't always the most effective course of action. Some products contain harsh chemicals, and improper use can put your health at risk. Additionally, sprays and powders you can buy at your local store might not provide the lasting relief you're looking for.
