There are few things worse to a homeowner, renter, lessee or property manager than a home invasion from insects, rodents or other wildlife. Depending on which pest is causing the problem and how they managed to enter the property the cost of eliminating them could be rather expensive. Of course, you could try the low budget method and purchase some household grade pesticides, baits or traps and hope you get the critters in time. Sadly, many of these methods are rarely effective. Either the pesticides are too weak for their intended purpose or the animal avoids the traps. The net result is a lot of wasted time that could be put to better use by contacting a professional pest control mooresville nc.
Pests come in all types and sizes, but some of the most bothersome are tiny little insects that people rarely see. This particular insect, the termite, spends most of its time in dark, dank spaces or chewing away at the timbers that support your home. Even modern homes that use little wood aren’t invulnerable. Termites can survive on a variety of materials including dried wood, dead leaves, stored newspapers and magazines. In fact, just about anything that contains cellulose from plants can be a food source. Treating a termite infestation can be difficult if the colony has gotten too large, but preventing the problem will usually keep these voracious creatures away. The trick to keeping the problem under control requires a simple bait system. Foraging termites will find the bait and return it back to the colony where it can work to eliminate others.
Another nasty little insect is the cockroach. This resolute adventurer has survived on the planet for millions of years. Unfortunately, all of this adaptation has made the cockroach a tough pest to eliminate. In most cases it will require multiple treatments to get the problem under control. Pests like the roach can bring diseases into your home, but they aren’t the only ones. Many mice, rats and other rodents are known to carry diseases that can affect humans. This is one reason it is extremely important to eliminate this problem as soon as you notice any signs. The most common signs are small droppings in your drawers, cabinets or other dark spaces.
