Pest control services and exterminators are a blessing to homeowners that have a pest problem at their house. Nearly every home has some type of pest lurking around but do you really need to call for professional help if you see one cockroach in the bathroom or a small colony of ants in your backyard? Not necessarily. So when should you call pest control anyway?
Here are some top signs you should look out for to know when you really need professional pest control service!
#1: When you’re dealing with danger
If the pest that has infiltrated your premises is dangerous one way or another, it’s best to leave its extermination to a professional. For example, if you have a wasp nest in your backyard, don’t try DIY ways to destroy it (yes that includes the infamous way of putting the nest on fire with aerosols and flame!).This could be dangerous to your own health and it could be a threat to your property as well. In times of danger, call pest control to save the day.
#2: When the infestations refuse to stop
So you’ve successfully gotten rid of that last cockroach in your pantry but the next week you see another baby roach crawling around your kitchen – what do you do? Call for professional help! If your property is victim to recurrent pest infestations, you could be getting rid of the insects in the wrong way. An exterminator will help get rid of these pests for good.
#3: When you suspect a rodent
Rodents like rats and mice are a nuisance to get rid of in the house. When you suspect a rodent infestation, it’s best to leave it to the professionals to get rid of the mousy situation. Remember, rodents tend to reproduce rapidly so act fast!
#4: When you don’t want to use chemicals
Every commercial pest repellant has harmful chemicals in it. If you have pets or children at home, you don’t want to bring those products to your home. The best way to avoid any danger to the health is by calling a professional pest control service for help.

Nobody likes the sight of big black furry creature hiding in their kitchen cabinet but this unsightly appearance isn’t the only things homeowners stress over when they have a rat in their house. If your humble abode is infiltrated by even one of these rodents, you should act fast. Hire a professional pest control service to get rid of the problem before it multiplies and causes an infestation.
Why Do I Need to Get Rid of Rats?
The damages done by rats in your home are numerous. Everyone knows the basic one: they eat your feed and pollute them. Food poisoning is a pretty imminent threat caused by rodents in the house but there are more damages these cunning little animals can do!
1. They chew and gnaw all the time: Rats and mice can’t get enough of chewing and gnawing. They can chew just about anything and this could be pretty damaging to your property. Wood, clothes and even wires are not safe when a rat has invaded your home. These rodents also gnaw at furniture and can cause the upholstery to tear and get damaged.
2. Insulation Problems: Perhaps one of the favorite things mice like to chew is the electrical insulation on wires. This could result in your wires getting naked and hazardous and could potentiate a fatal house fire.
3. They build nests wherever they can: Be it in the couch or in your washing machine, these rodents will find a place to make a nest just about anywhere that’s dark and humid. Appliances can get damaged and broken from the inside.
4. They can cause disease: Apart from the damage done to your home, the most dangerous consequence of rat infestation is the threat to your health. Along with food poisoning, rats can cause other diseases through the spread of bacteria.
Protect your home and your family from the dangers of a rodent in your house by hiring an pest exterminator immediately!
