Life gets busy. We get it. It is hard to juggle everything, and some things are bound to fall through the cracks, but pest problems should never be ignored. Pest problems have a way of growing. Here are a few examples.

One bug sighting does not mean you have one bug. If you see a single carpenter ant crawling around in your home, you can be sure there are hundreds more where that one came from. Carpenter ants send out scouts in search of food. These scouts can appear in your kitchen or pantry in the daytime, but carpenter ants are mostly nocturnal and are likely to feed on food sources at night while you’re asleep. If you see one cockroach scurrying across the floor, or zipping up a wall, it is likely there are many more hiding in your walls. Most cockroaches are reclusive. If you see a mouse in your home, you should know that it is likely due to overpopulation. Most pests stay hidden. You should never wait until your home is overrun. While you wait, those carpenter ants will destroy your home, those roaches will make you sick, and those mice will do both.

Pest problems multiply quickly because most pests multiply quickly. Most bugs and rodents are able to multiply at alarming rates. And your issues are going to increase as pest populations increase inside your home.

Bugs and rodents are part of an ecosystem. They don’t just come into your home to feed on the food in your pantry and kitchen; they feed on each other. If you let a pest problem go untreated, it can be the attractant that leads to another pest problem, and another… It is always best to deal with pest problems quickly when they arise. And it is always best to have this done by a professional. That is why year-round pest control service is a good idea. When you have a trained and certified pest professional identifying pest pressures, actively reducing pest populations, and applying pest control protocols that are systemic, you’ll have the protection you need for your property and your health.
