If you have pests in your home, you may need to call in a professional to take care of the situation to prevent having an infestation. As we enter Summer, it starts to become more common to see rodents such as mice, insects such as bees, and even birds invading your property.
Pest controllers can find the nesting place of any pests you may suspect are on your property, and they can remove them too. So instead of leaving things for too long and letting the situation escalate, it’s useful to be aware of the warning signs of any pests in your property so that you can call exterminators when necessary.
This is an obvious sign to look out for, any droppings can be a sign of mice, rats or cockroaches. House mice droppings are usually small and pointed, whereas rat droppings are much larger. If you see any mice droppings or a mouse running across the floor, you should call in pest control.
If you hear any scratching inside the walls or buzzing outside the house, you may have a pest problem. You should always keep an ear out if you are suspicious about having a pest problem. Mice and rats can make most of the noise at night.
If you suspect you may have a wasps nest inside your home, it’s not unusual to hear them buzzing around or see them flying about. As the weather starts to get warmer, you may see wasps flying around or feeding on certain shrubs, however if the frequency or amount of activity becomes too high, there may be a nest nearby.
Most wasp nests can be found at the gutter level of a building or in a shed. It is important to never treat a wasp nest on your own, and you should immediately seek pest control assistance if you think you may have a nest.
Marks on your skin
It’s important to look out for any new marks to your skin, as any new bites or red marks on your skin is an obvious sign of bed bugs. Bed bugs can also leave eggs and tiny specs of excrement in your bed that you can look out for if you have any suspicions.
These bites can become really itchy and uncomfortable, and many people usually first develop a rash as this could be some form of allergic reaction or from a biting insect. If you have any marks, circle them with a pen, and then the following morning you can check if you have developed any new marks.
If you do suspect you have a bed bug infestation, you should call a pest control company immediately.
Be pest free in your home
Having pests in your home can be a really stressful time, so instead of taking the DIY route for a pest removal and risking the health of yours and your family’s health, you should call in a pest control company to get the problem fixed urgently.
Once pest control identification has taken place, and you have recognised the signs that you have a pest problem, give your exterminators a call, as they can quickly identify where they are residing, and they can ensure the pests won’t come back.
