6 Simple Signs to Identify if You’re in Need of Professional Extermination Services

 

If you’re home or property is experiencing bugs and pests, you may have some questions about where to begin when assessing their damage and how bad they really are. Whether it’s ants in your kitchen or the sound of potential animals in your walls, these 6 signs will help you identify if you’re in need of professional extermination services to help solve the problem.

 

 

  • Exposed or rotten wood around your home or property

 

The condition of the wood and structure of your home or property can tell you a lot about the conditions of pests in your space. If exposed wood appears to be rotten or visibly infested with bugs, you may want to make a call to your local exterminator. Even trees that have fallen in your yard or other rotten wooden structures may be inviting bugs and pests into your home or space.

 

  • Visible signs of bugs or pests in your living or working space

 

If you can see them, you may have a problem. Some pests like rats or mice are easier to spot than small bugs or fleas. But if you catch any of them inside your space, bring out the big guns. Where there’s one, there are often times more not far behind. If your efforts to eliminate these pests don’t work the first time, you need to schedule a consultation with an extermination expert.

 

  • You can hear the pests and other strange noises

 

If you wake up in the middle of the night hearing strange noises in your attic or walls, call an extermination service professional immediately. Not only are the pests noisy and burdensome to have hanging around but they can damage insulation, wiring, and more in the walls of your property. If you wait too long, these animals often times make homes within your space and may even expand their families aka more pets for you to wrangle.

 

  • Your efforts to eliminate the pests haven’t worked

 

If you’ve already tried traps, sprays, and other over-the-counter methods of eliminating the pests but nothing keeps them away for good, a professional exterminator may need to be called. Because many pests are seasonal, your sprays or traps may appear to work for a period of time, but if they’re not professionally removed from your property, there is a high chance the pests will come back again next year. To ensure these pests are gone for good, have your local exterminator assess your property.

 

  • Children or pets are effected by the pests

 

If you have small children or pets the are feeling the effects of these pests, it may be time to get rid of them once and for all. Children may not be able to apply the same topical remedies for bug bites adults, can and cats or dogs may suffer through housing those pests in their coats for the season.

 

  • You feel the pests on you or your furniture

 

The last straw for many homeowners is when pests invade their home and personal spaces. If you have pests on your furniture or you may even feel them on your skin, do yourself a favor and get professional help. At this point, the infestations are often times too large to handle with home remedies and products.
