No matter how new your home currently is, there will be occasions when you'll have to fight wild animals or pests for control of your property. Not only are pests and wild animals gross, but they are also scary and carry dangerous diseases. Here are a few sure signs that it's time for you to schedule animal removal.
There are torn papers, but you're not producing art projects
If you're like many people, then perhaps you hold on to older copies of newspapers or circulars. You like to use them for a variety of projects, so you might typically keep them in a corner of your house or inside your garage. But after a while, you might notice that your stacks of papers are mysteriously torn and shredded.
If none of the humans in your house are making art projects, then this is a good sign that claw-bearing critters are using your paper pile for nesting materials. This could especially be true during the colder months. Critters will either tear your papers and take them to a new location, or they'll directly bury and nest inside your paper pile at night.
You hear scratching, but you don't own cats or dogs
Although pet parents train their domestic animals to not scratch the walls or the furniture, it's common for pets to do this anyway. But if you notice scratching noises when you don't own pets, you probably have a critter trying to enter your space. The scratching you hear is coming from inside of the walls, specifically between the framing and the drywall of your house. Since removing the trapped critter is beyond your capability, you'll need to call for a pest control technician that specializes in animal removal. Never attempt to break a hole in the walls to try to free the animal. The wild animal could have rabies, and your home insurance policy probably won't cover, a hole that you've intentionally created.
You've been hungry lately, but not enough to eat wood
Perhaps you've been on a diet lately, and you find yourself especially hungry. Although there are moments when you're tempted to shove just about anything inside of your mouth, your home's building materials aren't appealing. This is why if you notice bite or gnaw marks on your wood beams, on your roof's shingling, or even along the baseboards of your floors, you can bet that this is due to an unwanted animal inside your house.
There are holes in your food packaging, but you don't snack overnight
Have you ever gone inside of your cabinets to grab a box or a package only to notice that there are holes that you didn't create? Animals such as mice and rats love to feast inside cabinets. It's crucial for you to schedule pest control that specializes in animal removal. They know how to find entry points for mice and rats. Never discount any narrow or tight holes around your house. These are pests that know how to enter and slide through even the tightest spaces. This is how they enter your cabinetry, even though you keep the doors closed!Share

After marrying my sweet husband ten years ago, I moved into a fixer-upper. I immediately started making a list of remodeling projects I wold need to complete before the house would be comfortable to live in. For instance, I had to rip out the old linoleum flooring in the kitchen, mud room, and bathrooms. I also had to buy a complete set of new furniture. Only a few days after moving into this house, I also discovered my need to contact a reputable pest control specialist. The house contained huge, disgusting roaches. After a local pest control technician visiting my house, my home was free of potentially health damaging roaches. On this blog, you will discover the latest trends in the pest control industry for successfully removing roaches from a home.
