Dealing with a pest problem starts with realizing you have one. Pests of any sort inhabit spaces you don’t normally explore: inside your walls, crawl spaces, attics, basements, and even in the fibers of your carpet. Insects like fleas, wasps, bees, ants and cockroaches are all small enough to invade your home and create a large-scale infestation without you noticing until it’s too late.
How to Identify a Pest Infestation
For each of these pests, there are specific signs that can warn you of their presence. And, unfortunately, seeing these bugs around your house, though a good way to know if you have a problem, is usually an indication that they have been there for a good amount of time. Looking for the warning signs we’ve outlined on each of the pages dedicated to these individual pests is a good way to know what pest you have and how bad your problem is.
How Our Pest Removal Services Work
Healthy Home Termite & Pest Control has specialized approaches unique to each individual pest. We have more than 20 years’ experience clearing businesses and homes of pests both small and large.
The first step in removing a pest from your home is identifying where they came in. For example, fleas will ride in on the backs of family pets, ants tend to come in around the foundation, and bees and wasps tend to inhabit higher spaces like attics. Tracing the pest back to its source helps us focus our approach and ensure that we remove the entire problem.
Once we’ve identified where your pest came in, we can seal off that access point and begin to exterminate the pests inside your home. This is where our tactics become more unique to your specific problem. Some pests, like wasps and bees, simply need to have their nest removed for them to leave, others, like cockroaches and fleas, need to be fully exterminated, using sprays, baits, or insecticides.
After we’ve ensured that they problem is under control and all pests are gone, we take steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen again. This process requires understanding why the pests invaded your home and what made them want to come in. For some insects, it’s a search for food, others are drawn in by hospitable environments, and for some, location is everything. Protecting food in your home by putting it in airtight containers, sealing off cracks and openings in prime spots, and removing things like mulch piles and overhanging branches that touch your home are all great ways to prevent them from coming back.
