A pest infestation can happen anytime and in any house, apartment, or commercial building. Although every season can bring pests into your environment, fall and winter are the worst time for a residential or commercial pest invasion.
The coming cold weather makes virtually every type of pest look for warmth and this is especially true of rats and mice. Cockroaches and bed bugs are bad, but a rat or mouse invasion can be much worse. Rats and mice can spoil food with droppings and potentially bring disease-carrying fleas and ticks.
Every pest needs food, water, and shelter to survive. If you take those things away, no pest, regardless of what it may be, can live in your home or business.
The other aspect of surviving pests is making sure there are no entry points. If pests can’t get in, they can’t be a problem. But that is not always easy to do.
Dealing with Pests
There are many over-the-counter pest management chemicals, detergents, and traps that you can use in an attempt to control a pest invasion. Although some of them work, you have to be diligent in using them. If you are not committed to ridding your home or business of a pest problem, they will return, and it may be worse than it was before.
Additionally, you may rid your home or business of pests, but if you are unable to find and seal off their entry points, you will fight a constant battle to keep those pests at bay.
A Pest Inspection
Ask yourself: Do you really know how to deal with pests? Mouse traps won’t work with rats, contact bug sprays don’t work on hidden bed bugs, and unless you can find and seal off entry points, you’ll never get rid of squirrels.
A pest inspection will zero in on the type of pest that has infiltrated your home or business, and a pest management company will develop a tailor-made plan to eliminate the problem and keep pests from coming back. Getting a pest inspection is the first step to eliminating the problem.
