Boca Raton Pest Control
Some of the most common pests that enter a home are rodents, ants and termites. It is important to recognize the signs of an infestation and the damage that may occur to your home. It is essential to control the problem before it becomes severe.
Signs of Rodents
Rodents can be extremely dangerous when they invade your home. They can cause harm by chewing away at wood and wires. They may also bite residents. This is a way that diseases are spread. Also, many people get sick from the smell of rodent urine or droppings as well.
Signs of a rodent infestation include nibble marks around the home. Some people hear squeaking or notice droppings behind cupboards or furniture. Also, pets may become overly excited when rodents are present as well.
Ants around the Home
Ants are one of the most common pests in and around homes. Knowing what species of ant is present is key to determining the nesting site, food preference, and the best method of management. In most cases, the most effective, permanent solution is to find and treat the nest. Queens must be killed to properly eliminate a colony.
Termites may be one of the most destructive pests of all times. Since they feed on wood, they cause extreme damage to a home's structure. Termites also feed on furniture, flooring, and cabinets.
There are numerous signs of an infestation. In the beginning, it may appear as though there is water damage in the home. In late stages of an infestation, tunnels may become visible behind walls.
