When To Call An Exterminator

Spring time in Columbus. The sun, the flowers, the birds and the bees…bees…oh yeah, bugs!!!

There are plenty of things to love about the warmer weather arriving after a long winter, but the pests are certainly something that can make your otherwise good spirits feel a little bitter about the season.

If you search online or even ask some of your friends, you’ll be sure to find lots of advice on natural ways of avoiding &/or ridding of pests in your home. Some insects don’t go away so easily though. Especially if you have pets. Our beloved little, furry creatures can attract the worst kinds. This is especially true during the spring, which is a mating season for many creatures, only worsening the potential for a pest problem. Fleas and ticks can be quite common in the warmer weather with pets around, and are not easily rid of. Especially at the rate in which they multiply. A tick or flea issue can quickly get out of hand. When you begin to see them on your walls, floors or creeping in and out of your wall or furniture, it’s time to call Exterminator Columbus.

Termites are another common problem that people can have when the warm weather arrives. They’re so tiny, they don’t bite and you barely notice them until they’re out of hand. When they’re out of hand though, there are so many in your walls literally eating the wood away, that there’s a potential for them to do drastic damage to your home, costing you thousands in maintenance. It’s a pain to have your house tented for a few days while you find somewhere else to stay, needing to remove your plants, food and &/or pets, but it’s well worth the measure! This is another incidence when you need Exterminator Columbus to rid of the pests, rather than trying to solve the problem on your own. Keep an eye out for little saw dust looking piles that continue to reappear after having cleaned them up in the same locations of your home. These are the sure signs of the tiny, little termites dropping wood and remains from their tiny burrowed holes. When they mate, they come out of the holes in the masses and loose their wings before hooking up. Lots of little wings scattered around your house (especially near lighting) is another sign your house probably has a termite issue, and you should call the professionals.

Like many problems in life, unfortunately if we ignore the hard to get rid of pests that can appear in our homes, if you ignore certain kinds, you’ll end up with a much larger problem in the long run. Keep an eye out for the signs, and never hesitate to call your trusted exterminator to inquire about your pest problems. You’ll certainly be glad you did!
