In an age of how-to blogs and YouTube videos, there’s a temptation to think that any challenge can be met simply by having the right know-how. That might even be true when you’re talking about learning how to unclog your drain or checking your car’s tire pressure—pest control such as mosquito and tick control or even wildlife control, though, is something you want to leave to the professionals.
Pests like raccoons and possums and the most common bugs in New England like bees, cockroaches, and termites aren’t messing around. These pests can carry diseases and pose health risks to you and your family. You might even be thinking about contacting a pest control specialist because a raccoon, woodchuck, or other large animal has caused property damage by tearing into your home through a screen or roof.
Bain Pest Control offers safe and eco-friendly pest management services. Pest control experts can come to your home or place of work, size up the situation, and go from there. If termites are discovered on your property, there’s Bain’s termite control. It doesn’t stop there since Bain also offers help eradicating bugs, birds, rodents, mosquitoes and ticks, and humane wildlife control.
If you’ve already noticed evidence that pests have made inroads into your home or workplace, then it’s time to call Bain Pest Control. Screens that have been scratched through, signs of droppings, any kind of rangy smell that seems unusual, or scratching sounds on your roof or in your walls would all be red flags. These signs likely mean that pests have infiltrated your home and that it’s time to take action right away.
Pest Control Specialists for Your Family and Home Safety
It’s all too easy to notice one ant or cockroach and think that’s the end of it. In all likelihood, though, there are more where that came from. It’s become an unofficial mantra among pest management specialists that for every cockroach that you see, there are about a hundred somewhere out of sight. Cockroaches like warm, dark places where they can linger out of sight.
Worse yet, cockroaches can carry all kinds of diseases like salmonella and might spread E. Coli bacterial infections. It’s nothing to fool around with. Many homeowners who’ve seen their kitchens penetrated by mice and rats are probably anxious to get rid of the problem and don’t need any more warnings. Something like ticks, however, can be easy to write off, until you realize that they could be carriers of Lyme disease.
Identify, Eliminate, and Keep Out
Those are really the three indispensable functions of a pest management specialist—to identify entry points and the particular pest that you’re dealing with, to eliminate the health and property threat to you and your family, and to take measures to ensure that these pests leave you alone in the future.
The last step can entail different techniques—for example, eco-friendly traps can be left for certain insects while caging and humanely removing larger animals might be the way to proceed with larger pests.
Just figuring out what kind of pest you’re dealing with and clogging up entry points can be half the battle in some cases. That said, pest elimination is also a step that you want to leave to the professionals. Trapping and relocating carpenter bees, as an example, could be extremely hazardous for the average homeowner to attempt single-handedly.
The pest management experts at Bain Pest Control can work with homeowners and local businesses throughout New England. Trimming shrubs, removing standing water or debris, and sealing your home’s exterior are steps that you can take. Pest removal…leave that to the professionals!
