Pest control experts can help you to identify creatures within your home. They can help you to remove the pest carefully and without experiencing any further problems. But how do you know when it’s time to call a professional to help resolve a pest issue? Our experts have many years of experience in this area of the marketplace. We’ve helped thousands of homeowners counteract pest issues both inside and outside their homes. And so, within this latest post, we’ll present three telltale signs you need pest control services.
1 - Damaged Furniture or Wiring
If you notice your electrical systems are not working consistently, you may be experiencing a pest issue. Creatures such as rats, mice, and squirrels can delve deep into a property once they make their way inside. They can chew through wiring and into walls. And they can disrupt your cable or phone connection with a simple bite. You might also notice small scratches on the exterior of furniture. Squirrels are just one creature that use the interior of couch cushions as material for their nests during the wintertime. Small scratches could be a sign of a much larger infestation in your home.
2 - Noise During the Evening
Many small creatures are nocturnal and can be found scurrying in your attic or across your roof during the evenings. These scurrying and squeaking noises could be indicative of a large problem that requires investigation by removal professionals. Often, by the time you’ve heard them in your home, they’ve already grown to a large enough number that an entire family of creatures such as squirrels and raccoons could be living in the property. Make sure you call pest control services when you first begin to hear animal sounds across your home during the late evening.
3 – Droppings
Whether it’s the smaller mice droppings in the kitchen or the larger and more unpleasant droppings of raccoons in the attic, droppings are a clear sign that an animal is eating in your home and developing a sense of comfort in the area. It’s important that you take proper precautions when removing the droppings and wear rubber gloves, as well as clean the area with anti-bacterial products. Then call your local Edmonton pest removal professionals to investigate the problem comprehensively.
