Finding signs of an infestation in your home is nobody’s idea of a good time. While some might immediately reach for the phone to call a professional, others might reach for a can of bug spray instead, trying to take care of it on their own. While we fully support the DIY mindset, there comes a point when it is time to put the bug spray down and call in the professionals. Read on to find out when you should finally call a pest control company.
DIY Methods Aren’t Working
If you have been fighting an infestation for any real length of time, and they just won’t seem to go away, then it’s time to call in a professional. Quick invasions are easy to get rid of. However, long-term problems point to a much deeper infestation than you may be aware of. If you keep spraying, but they keep reappearing, then most likely they are deep inside your home, where the sprays can’t reach.
Full Blown Pest Infestation
Bug spray is great for a quick spot treatment: you see some ants, you spray, they’re gone. But if you see a lot of pests in one area, or pests in multiple areas of your home at once, then you most likely have a full-blown infestation that normal sprays and treatments just aren’t going to help. In those situations, you need to call in the professionals.
When You Find Pest Infestation Damage
Any serious infestation of pests can damage your home. Droppings, moisture damage, mold, chewed-up materials such as walls and wires can all happen with any sort of infestation if it is allowed to go unchecked for too long. The worst part is that when you find this sort of damage, it’s already too late. The infestation is large and getting worse every day. You need to call on someone as soon as possible before it gets any worse.
