Pests are attracted to homes for various reasons, many of which have nothing to do with cleanliness. Finding a few bugs or rodents in your home can be unsettling, but you might not think your situation warrants professional attention. However, a few key signs could signify a bigger issue at hand. At On The Green Inc., we recommend calling our skilled pest control team if you notice any of the following signs.
Your DIY Pest Control Attempts aren’t Working
If you have already bought several different bug sprays and insect traps and still haven’t gotten rid of the pests in your home, you need to contact a pest control company immediately.
Your sprays and traps may manage to kill and catch some pests, but you still see many of them running, creeping, or flying around; you are only wasting a lot of time and money. Keeping your home clean is a good start to minimizing pests. But to get rid of your problem, get help from professional pest control services.
Closely inspect your home regularly, looking for damage to the drywall, furniture, furnishings, beams, or floors. Pests like termites and rats may not show themselves, but their destruction is often reflected in the upholstery and wood. In addition to this, check your kitchen cabinets for open containers and your closets for torn clothes. If you leave a termite or rodent infestation unaddressed for too long, it may jeopardize the structural integrity of your house.
You are Dealing with Dangerous Pests
Some pests are simply too dangerous to deal with on your own. These include bees, wasps, and poisonous snakes and spiders. Even rodents can be harmful to have in your home. Rats are known carriers of various diseases, including leptospirosis and salmonellosis. Some species of ticks carry Lyme disease, which can be debilitating if contracted. Certain pests can also carry e-coli, making you or your family sick if not dealt with immediately and properly. If your home or yard is harboring any of these pests, call a pest control expert immediately.
You Notice Droppings Around Your Home
An unmistakable sign of pests is the presence of droppings. The size and type of droppings vary from pest to pest, but they all have one thing in common: they are rife with diseases. You may be dealing with an infestation if you see little droppings on your floors, furniture, or shoes. Check for droppings in hard-to-reach places like underneath cabinets and beds as well.
