There are a lot of different types of pests that infest homes. The chances are that you’ve got pest problems in your home or yard. How do you tell? Most pest control service calls are emergencies. The house suddenly has pest problems. Here are three ways to know if there is a pest problem in your home.
1 You Encounter Pests
One of the most common and easiest ways to tell if pests are in your house is that you see them. Ants are one pest that is easy to spot. Other types of pests might leave behind clues to their existence. Fleas, for example, might leave bite marks. You can see evidence of mice because they leave feces wherever they go. Cockroaches make a lot of noise, and you may not see them, but you can hear them. A good rule of thumb is to make inspections around your home – inside and out – often.
2 You Hear Them
Certain pests make a lot of noise, while others make little to no noise at all. Mice and rats are some of the noisiest household pests. Rats are also known as roof rabbits because they make so much noise for a small animal. Mice and rats are nocturnal, so you hear them in the middle of the night. Birds and bats also make noise. You hear them scratching in the wall space, or you hear them chittering in the attic.
3 You Encounter Them
You may open the front door and find a raccoon on the porch. You may see a snake basking in a warm spot. You may find many webs in the garage. You may flick on the kitchen light and see cockroaches scurrying away.
