Sometimes we’re able to coexist alongside pests and creepy crawlies peacefully, but other times they invade our space and become a much bigger problem than we anticipated. When you’re faced with an infestation of bugs or pests and you’re feeling entirely overwhelmed, the best thing you can do for the situation is to call the experts. Here’s why calling in the pros for pest infestations is the best course of action!
You’re minding your business and all of a sudden a mouse or a cockroach bolts across your kitchen and under your refrigerator and what might seem like a harmless, lonely pest can quickly turn into a full-blown infestation. While dealing with it yourself might seem the easiest thing to do, rodents and bugs can be a nightmare to get rid of on your own.
Some folks keep them as cuddly playmates, but a mouse in your pantry is the farthest thing from a cuddly friend. A nasty little pest that can get into your walls and cause all sorts of damage, including electrical and structural, mice are tricky to get rid of because they can multiply so quickly and can squeeze themselves through very small spaces. While snap traps can help reduce numbers, it’s an inhumane and ineffective way to control a mouse infestation. When you hire an expert pest control company, they’ll not only eliminate your rodent problem, but they’ll also help you find points of entry. A good time to call for help with a mouse issue is as soon as you see evidence of one, either the actual mouse itself, droppings or sounds in the walls.
It doesn’t matter how clean you keep your home because cockroaches will still invade a spotless house if they can! If there’s food, a warm place to sleep and water, a roach will set up shop and stay awhile. Because they’re nocturnal, you may not even know about an infestation until you start to really find the evidence. Roaches exude an oily, musty odour and their droppings are tiny oval pellets or what might look like flecks of pepper, you may also find oblong, brown egg casings. If you see a roach in the daylight, you likely have a much bigger problem than you think. It’s always a good idea to call a pest control company for roaches because they are notoriously good at hiding away and just one or two roaches can restart a new infestation.
