They Could Be Hiding: Tell-Tale Signs Of Pest Infestations

by Norah Slieker

If you haven't seen any pests around the house, you might think you're in the clear. That's not the case though. Most pests like to maintain their privacy. That means you won't see them until there's a major infestation. That's why you need to focus on the tell-tale signs. Most pests will leave signs around the house. These signs can help you identify pest problems before they turn into an infestation. Read the list below. If you've spotted any of these problems in your house, it's time to call a pest control company. 

Fabric Damage

Take a look at the fabric in your home. If you've discovered chew marks on your furniture, curtains, or clothing, you've got a pest problem to worry about. It's not uncommon for pests to chew holes in the fabric. Mice and rats use fabric pieces as nesting material. Moths will also chew through fabric. That's why you should arrange for pest control services as soon as you spot chew marks on your clothing or furniture. 

Ammonia Odor

If you're worried about pests, take a deep breath. You can tell a lot about your house by the odors you smell. Some of those odors can identify pest problems. Roaches leave an oily odor in your home. Bed bugs can make your home smell sweet. But, rats and mice leave an ammonia odor in your home. The ammonia odor comes from the urine they leave behind. If you smell unusual odors, give your home a deep cleaning. If the odors return, call a pest control company right away.  

Grease Tracks

If you think you have a pest problem, start looking for hidden tracks. You might not know this, but some pests will leave a greasy track behind. Those tracks help guide other pests through your home. You can find tracks along the baseboards, or inside the cabinets. If you find greasy tracks in your home, don't wait to act. Grease tracks are a sign that you have a hidden pest problem. Pest control services will eliminate the problem. 

Skin Irritation

If you're dealing with sudden skin irritations, you could have a pest problem in your home. Pests can cause skin irritations like rashes, welts, and bite marks. Most pest-related skin irritations come from bed bugs, fleas, and cockroaches. That's because they crawl on your skin while you're asleep. Hire a pest control service before your skin irritations get worse.

Learning About Natural Pest Control

Hey everyone, my name is Silas. With two allergy prone children, I had to find natural ways to keep bugs from infiltrating our home. In this area, bugs tend to come into the house in droves as soon as the outdoor temperatures drop. When that happens, I'm forced to treat common areas to kill the bugs and keep them from growing in number. I want to share all of the natural pest control techniques I used to keep bugs out of our house. I will also talk about gentle commercial options available for heavy infestations. I hope you will visit my site on a regular basis to learn more.
