Everything You Need to Know About Pest Inspection

Pests and vermin can be a nuisance, especially if they are causing damage to your property. They also cause diseases by contaminating surfaces you touch and the food you consume. The mere sight of pests can even be uncomfortable and cause loss of clients if they have infested your commercial premises. Here's everything you need to know about pest inspection and control.

Where It All Starts

You may notice some signs like the destruction of property, presence of droppings, pest and vermin noises or even see the pests themselves dashing or flying across a room. Examples of these pests include flies, cockroaches, fleas, bedbugs, ants, etc. You may also come across vermin like rats, weasels and mice. 

What Do You Do?

For effective pest control results, you are required to contact the right pest inspection and control specialist. To ensure you do so, follow the following steps:

  • First, identify whether you are on a commercial or residential premises
  • Secondly, identify the pests or vermin that have infested your home or business and if you can't, identify the signs and note them down

These two steps will help you gather the information required to hire the right pest inspection and control specialist. How?

For example, if you are in a commercial setting and have noticed rat droppings or even seen the rats themselves, you need to contact a pest control specialist who specialises in rat control in a commercial setting. Likewise, if you are in a residential setting and notice bedbugs or experience restless itchy nights, you need to contact a pest control specialist who specialises in residential bedbug control.

DIY Versus Professional Pest Inspection and Control

Have you ever wondered why when you use pest control products, they only work for a short time and then the pests are back again? The answer is simple; you don't have the necessary knowledge and skills to get rid of pests and vermin. That is why it recommended hiring a professional.

When the pest control specialist gets to your premises, the first thing is to conduct a pest inspection to identify the kind of pests that have invaded your home or business. The pest control specialist will have already learnt about the behaviour and lifestyle of different pests and will know where they hide, how they mate and how best to kill or repel them from your premises. This is what sets DIY pest control measures apart from professional pest control and makes the latter successful.
