Do I Need Pest Control?
Being able to recognize the signs of an infestation is incredibly important because many pests are really good at hiding from people. All too often, we are called to treat infestations that have been present for months or even years before the property owners caught on. Fortunately, there are many signs you can look out for that indicate a pest problem.
You should call our Essex pest control team if you notice:
- Droppings: Small droppings in crawlspaces, the attic, the basement, behind water heaters, in pantries, in cabinets, or anywhere else in your home are a sure sign of an infestation.
- Odd pet behavior: Our beloved pets can often see and hear things that we don’t, which means they can usually detect pests before us. If your pets are acting erratic or staring at certain areas of your home for no apparent reason, you could have a pest problem.
- Property damage: If you discover damaged furniture, chewed holes in the wall, grease marks along your cabinets, holes in your clothing, gnawed wires, chewed-up plants, or other unexplained damage to your home or business, pests could be responsible.
- Nests: Pests such as rodents will construct nests out of paper, grass, fabric, or leaves in crawlspaces and attics.
As soon as you suspect you have a pest problem, reach out to our pest experts.
Are Pests Harmful?
Not only do pests make people feel very uncomfortable but they are also potentially harmful. There are a handful of pests that are known to cause extensive damage to homes and businesses across the country. For example, homeowners spend around $5 billion repairing property damage caused by termites each year. Rats are also known to cause their fair share of damage by gnawing on wires (which can trigger a fire) and chewing holes through walls and floors.
In addition to creating property damage, a handful of pests are known to carry and transmit diseases, viruses, and bacteria to humans. These include:
- Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes can spread the West Nile virus, Zika virus, dengue, malaria, and more.
- Rodents: Rodents can transmit tularemia, hantavirus, salmonella, and more.
- Ticks: Ticks are most commonly known to spread Lyme disease, but they can also spread babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, and more.
- Fleas: Fleas transmit the bubonic plague, murine typhus, tularemia, and more.
