You may not have had to ever call a pest control service before, so now you’re wondering if the problem you’ve noticed warrants a phone call. Can’t you just take care of the problem on your own? Will the pests just go away if you ignore them? What is the best way to deal with this?
In some cases, a single mousetrap or some poison will take care of a mild infestation. You might get unwanted critters to stop frequenting your home if you remove the things that attract them, such as leftovers on the counters or an easily-accessible garbage can. However, in most cases you won’t notice an infestation until it’s become severe. By then, they will rarely leave on their own even if you remove their temptations. Here are some of the pest problems many homeowners need help dealing with:
Spiders, Wasps and Harmful Insects
Most spiders are beneficial, but some, like the black widow or the brown recluse spider, are highly venomous and are dangerous to human beings. Wasps can be aggressive, while other insects like termites cause extensive damage.
Mice, rats, moles and other rodents can cause damage in your home and garden and may be a source of disease or parasites.
Some creatures like raccoons can pose a health hazard around your family and pets, and can try to nest in your basement or attic. Snakes can be beneficial, but some are deadly. People typically don’t like to see large snakes in their yards anyway.
These are just a few of the many different types of critters people rely on exterminators to safely and permanently remove from their homes. Visit this website for more information on wildlife removal in Durham.
