While almost every homeowner has faced a pest problem at least once, only some have experienced an infestation that requires the help of a pest control professional to remedy. Many home and business owners will wait to call a pest control company until it is their last resort, but this can be a costly mistake. While it is possible for you to get rid of pests on your own, a pest control professional will cut the problem off at the source and get the job done right every single time! In this article, we’ll offer a few tips on how to know when the time is right to pick up the phone and call for pest control help!
DIY Methods Aren’t Working
If you have tried using store-bought traps and other do-it-yourself methods to solve your pest problem, but nothing seems to be working, it’s probably time to seek the help of a pest control professional. Large infestations from all kinds of pests, like ants, termites, bed bugs, bees, & cockroaches, can be almost impossible to solve on your own. These pests breed quickly, so infestations can get out of hand faster than you may think. A pest control company will use professional-grade control options to tackle your pest problem once and for all!
Health & Safety Risks
When a pest infestation poses a health or safety risk to you and your family, it’s in everyone’s best interest to leave it to a professional. Different pests can cause different health risks: insects can cause potentially life-threatening allergic reactions, rodents can spread serious diseases, and termites can cause structural damage to your home! If you have a pest problem in your home or building that is making you concerned about the health & safety of your family, you should always be cautious and call in a professional to solve the problem!
Termites are one of the most dangerous pests that homeowners can face a problem with. These pests feed on wood and can cause tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home. Termites work fast, multiply quickly, and are incredibly difficult and risky to try to get rid of on your own. You should always be extra cautious and contact a pest control professional at the first sign of a termite infestation! Some common signs of a termite infestation include seeing winged termites and spotting the pinhole-like damage that they cause.
Sounds & Smells
One more reason to contact a pest control professional (that we’ll highlight in this article) is the presence of smells and sounds caused by pests. Each different kind of pest can cause different smells and sounds. Rodents, for example, often make sounds when they are scurrying or scratching behind walls or in attics & crawl spaces. Some rodents also leave behind an ammonia-like smell. If you start to smell something that seems foreign to your home, there’s a good chance that there is a hidden infestation looming. When you contact a pest control professional, they’ll be able to find the source and solve the problem!
