Wauwatosa Pest Control
The last thing you want to deal with in your Wisconsin home is a pest infestation. If you find yourself facing a problem with any of these common pests, it’s time to bring in a professional pest control service to get rid of them once and for all.
Stopping the March of the Ants
Ants are so prevalent that they turn up on just about every property. Seeing an ant hill in the yard or a few ants scuttling around the house could indicate a more widespread problem. Ants take up residence anywhere that offers shelter and food, whether it’s in the cracks in your sidewalk or around the roots of your favorite house plant. These pests can contaminate food if they get into the kitchen or cause damage to your home’s structure as they create more space for their colonies. Outdoor ants may move inside during the winter to seek warmth as the temperature drops.
Roaches range in size from half a inch to just over an inch in length, making them small enough to get into your house through gaps in windows, cracks in the foundation and spaces around pipes. They can also “hitch a ride” in when others visit your home or you bring in belongings from another building that has a roach problem. Since roaches prefer darkness, the only signs you may encounter when you’re dealing with an infestation are waste matter and a moldy smell. If you notice these or catch a glimpse of a roach, the problem should be dealt with right away to avoid a potential health hazard.
Banishing Wauwatosa Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are another pest that’s good at hitchhiking. They may enter your home on backpacks, bedding, other people’s clothing or used and antique furniture. Once there, they take up residence in your mattress and come out at night to feed. A sure sign of a bed bug infestation is waking up with red, itchy bumps. Some people have a more severe reaction to these bed bug bites than others. The problem with bed bugs is that they can go for a long time without a meal, so they could be hanging around without you even knowing it. These infestations are difficult to pinpoint and usually require professional intervention.
