How many occupants reside in your household? It could actually be more than you realise, with many different types of pests causing a problem in both commercial and residential properties. Rats, mice, cockroaches, spiders, bed bugs, ants, termites – you name it, these rodents and critters are looking for a way to live rent-free, but don’t let them! There are many signs that you could be dealing with a pest invasion, such as rat or mouse droppings around the home, termite colonies creating holes in wooden structures, unusual noises at night and bugs on window sills, to name a few. The sooner you notice a problem, the easier it will be to resolve. So, without further ado, let’s find out what professional pest control services can do for you.
Inspection of the Premises
Otherwise known as an exterminator, a pest control specialist at RIP Pest Control will initially visit your premises to take a look around. This will give them an opportunity to uncover whatever problem may be festering, before they alert you of the extent of the problem. A specific plan will be put into place by the exterminator, who will typically examine the basement, attic and crawl spaces that pests may wiggle their way into.
Method of Pest Control
Unless you hire someone to perform professional pest control services, there is a big chance that diseases could be spread. Most exterminators will avoid the use of toxic chemicals and pesticides, unless it is absolutely necessary. Once the person(s) you hire explains the issue and the risks, he or she will wear proper safety equipment and protection to ensure there is minimal chance of injury occurring when pest control is being carried out. Examples of common pest control methods that prove effective include natural pest control, biological pest control, mechanical pest control and physical pest control.
