Your home should be a place of refuge for you and your family, not for house pests. If you’re beginning to notice the presence of ants, cockroaches, mice, or other pests around your premises, it’s very likely that there are more of them making themselves comfortable in those hidden nooks and crannies of your property. Knowing what to look for will help you catch any infestations early on and understand when to turn to an in-home pest control service.
Although ants might not seem like a big deal, certain ant species (such as fire ants and carpenter ants) can cause structural damage to your house and pose health threats to your family and pets. If you consistently notice ants making their way through your home, ravaging your exposed food or your dog’s food bowl, check for signs of nesting outside. You may notice a mound of dirt that is housing an ant colony. Anthills should only be handled only by residential pest control services.
Like ants, flies are common to homes and don’t appear to cause any major problems, but they should be taken seriously. House flies carry harmful, illness-causing bacteria and can spread it around your food sources with ease. Watch for them around water sources and look for their feces around light fixtures; their waste will appear as small black pin-sized specks. You’ll know that flies are breeding in your home if you find maggots in your garbage can or around rotting food. When this is the case, call our home pest control crew for help.
Living in Iowa or Nebraska, you should be especially cognizant of termites. These destructive pests can destroy the very foundation of your home in as little as three years if left untreated by a residential pest control specialist. Be especially aware of the condition of your wood floors and other wood surfaces. If you notice holes, sagging, or a hollow sound in your wood structures, you may have an infestation. Further signs include piles of termite wings, tan termite droppings that resemble sawdust, and mud trails along outside walls.
Rats and mice carry disease, musty odors, and cause costly damage to the homes they invade. They love to nest in shredded paper and burrow in the walls of homes, in cabinets, and behind appliances as well as in garbage and heavily weeded areas. Keep an eye out for holes in the walls, mouse droppings, grease trails, chewed electrical wiring, and small footprints in dusty places. If you listen closely, you may be able to hear scratching, squeaking, or scurrying sounds inside the walls. When in doubt, schedule a home pest inspection.
Iowa and Nebraska are home to a healthy wood cockroach population. These repugnant pests carry a host of horrific bacterial and viral diseases, including typhoid, polio, staph, and even dysentery. Roaches will make their homes in dark and damp areas, such as basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, and drains. Their presence is marked by a distinct musty, oily smell, and they leave behind black droppings and irregularly shaped, dark brown smears on the lower half of walls. Wood cockroaches are likely to nest in wood siding and shingles, it’s important to rely on residential pest control services to locate and eliminate them from your home.
