Pest infestations are no joke. Pesky little ants or earwigs may be an annoyance, but termites, rodents and woodworms could do major structural harm to your home. If you are living with pests, know what the cost you could end up paying if you don’t control the situation now!
I have pests: should I call experts?
There are a few things you can do before you call in a cavalry of experts to bombard your house with chemicals. If you have rats or mice living in your home, check if you are leaving food unguarded around your living area, on the ground, or countertops.
Thoroughly clean your house for any crumbs, pieces as the smell attracts rodents. Ammonia based cleaners are usually great at cleaning up the odor. If you have children and pets and do not want to go for potent chemical solutions, you can make use of peppermint acrylic which is a non-toxic compound.
Check around the walls for holes or openings, which pests can use to crawl up into wall space and breed. Or if you have trees touching the windowpanes, get them trimmed to keep away vermin.
But no matter how much cleaning you do, sometimes major infestations are just unavoidable. And they leave urine, feces around, bring in disease and make your home a putrid place to live in.
The most worrisome factor is that you may not even know where the cockroaches or mice are getting in from. And nothing you do can seem to stop this onslaught. It’s because you don’t have the expertise or tools to go looking into the dingiest, smallest corners of your house. So call experts before it’s too late.
