Your family and pets are not the only ones who may potentially live in your house! A home is an attractive place for many other living beings: pests and critters! You may have seen the occasional spider or fly, but they are not the only ones who will call your place their home.
Ants and Termites are known to eat away at your home’s foundation, thus creating a potentially dangerous situation that undermines the structural integrity of the home. Most of the time, to ensure a proper eradication of these bugs, a professional must be called to handle the situation. Simple baits and traps might not work effectively.
Signs of possible ant or termite infestations may include:
- Blistering paint
- Loose siding
- Piles of droppings or a substance that looks like sawdust
- Wood that sounds hollow when tapped
- Small, pinpoint holes in drywall
- Buckling wooden or laminate floor boards
- Tiles loosening from the added moisture termites can introduce to your floor
- Excessively squeaky floorboards
Mice and rodents would love to call your place home. A place that offers safety, warmth, and a food supply, draws them in faster than you can blink! Not only do rodents pose a possible health risk, i.e., hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV), Tularemia and Salmonella, but they can cause damage to your home and food supply.
Signs of possible rodent infestation may include:
- Rodent droppings around food packages, in drawers or cupboards, and under the sink.
- Nesting material such as shredded paper, fabric, or dried plant matter.
- Signs of chewing on food packaging.
- Holes chewed through walls and floors that create entry points into the home.
Off-the-shelf traps and baits may help with the problem, but you might end up having to call a professional to deal with the rodents.
To be pro-active about reducing or eliminating potential pest and critter infestations can be difficult and expensive. Unfortunately, older homes tend to have a harder time defending against these pests. Cracks, crevices, deteriorating siding, bad roof, all of these issues give the pests and critters access points into your home. Not only do they do more damage making themselves at home, but the possible health risks make them more dangerous.
If you have a home that is old or has fallen into disrepair, you are susceptible. Many individuals who may have fallen on hard times or just can’t afford to tackle this problem are stuck. Another negative consequence of pests and rodents is that they can negatively affect your home’s value. Potential buyers will think twice if they can see signs of pests or rodents in your home and property. This can drive away a sale!
