You have some little termites or ants trailing in your home or many spiders in your basement that you can’t control. It can be frustrating to deal with these harmful critters, but a good exterminator can take care of them for you and give you the peace of mind that comes along with having a pest-free home. But when do you need to contact a professional? Here are signs it’s time to call a professional exterminator.
- You Have Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are hitchhikers; they can enter your home through luggage. They can also come in through used mattresses, furniture, or even clothing. Many homeowners notice they have bed bugs in their home when they begin to see bites on their skin. These bites are present in small lines or clusters on your skin. Inspect your home for signs of bed bugs, and if you suspect any, contact us.
- You See Mud Tubes In Your Home
Termites travel between their colonies via mud tubes. Mud tubes are signs of a termite infestation. Look for these signs by examining the foundation of your home and the block wall. Long tubes that look like dirt mud or dried are signs of termites in your home. Contact us so that we can help you take preventative measures.
- You Hear Sound of Crickets
While crickets do not pose any threat to your family’s health or your home’s structure, they are a food source for scorpions. A scorpion sting can be life threatening to adults with health concerns and young children. When our experts are contacted for scorpion control, the first things they do is to reduce the cricket population around the home. At Ecola Termite and Pest Control, we can help you minimize the number of cricket in your home to keep scorpions away.
- Wasps, Hornets, or Bees are Crawling on the Wall
Wasps, bees, and hornets love to build hives in hollow parts of perimeter block walls, up high in the trees, or eaves of your home. These pests are challenging to access, and removing them is best left to the professionals. You can call us for inspection if you start to notice a large population of wasps, hornets, and bees around your home.
- You Notice an Increased Number of Spiders
Encountering spiders in your home is normal, but if you start to notice a large number of spiders, you should call us to inspect your home. Spiders are also a good source of food for scorpions like crickets, so controlling the number of spiders in your property is an essential aspect of preventative scorpion control.
