As weather patterns change and become wetter, more flowers bloom, grasses spring up, moss appears, and pests multiply. As the pests grow in numbers, they can look for dry places to nest, and that can mean your home becomes their new nursery. Here are some facts about five common pests that you need to look out for this year.
Mice are one of the most dangerous pests invading your home and their urine carries bacteria and viruses that can be extremely harmful to humans and pets. If you see one of these critters scampering around, call pest control Salem Oregon, right away.
Known to cause asthma, the fecal matter of cockroaches also carries harmful pathogens. If you see one cockroach, chances are there are hundreds hiding in cupboards, behind baseboards, and behind cabinets. Pest control technicians can often bait and sanitize the area to quickly rid your home of the pests.
Building nests in attics, under decks or porches, and inside eaves, wasps can be an invasive and troublesome pest. If you see a small nest of five to ten cells, call an exterminator right away to remove the pests before they take over the area. Wasps multiply quickly.
Ants are opportunistic pests. They can thrive indoors, inside walls, under concrete, and just about anywhere else. If you find a line of ants inside your home, on a walkway, or inside your flowerbed, don’t hesitate to contact a technician that can set up bait traps and spray for the pesky pests.
A growing problem in both rural and urban areas, rats were once seen as disease ridden, house destroying, harbingers of doom. As a species, the rat is resourceful and often difficult to get rid of. Call an exterminator at the first sign of fecal pellets or whiskers.
Do not let any of the pests listed above use your home as a nursery. You do not have to put up with the uninvited guests. Fight back by calling an extermination team that can quickly rid the entire house of any pests you may find.
