How to Get Started with Pest Control

Pest control can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never worked with a pest controller before.

There are so many questions you may have such as what pests you might be at risk of, how pests infest your home, how to know if they infested your home, and ultimately, how to get rid of them!

Family Pest Solutions wants to help set you on the right track towards understanding and getting rid of pests in your home or commercial business.

Understanding Signs of a Pest Infestation

First of all, you need to get an idea of whether or not you have a pest infestation on your hands. There are some signs you can look for yourself whether at home or at your business. While there are many, many different kinds of pests, a lot of them show some similar signs:

  • Small holes in walls, ceilings, or flooring (pest burrowing)
  • Signs of droppings/feces or staining (some feces is larger, some is smaller. Check spots like entry points in your home)
  • Scuttling sounds within the walls
  • Waking up with bites on your body

These are some common tell-tale signs of pest infestations in your home. For more details, we recommend checking out our full pest control page for information on specific pests.

Getting a Professional Opinion

The next step would be verifying your discoveries from a DIY pest inspection of your home. The best way to do this is to get a pest inspection from a professional pest control company. Family Pest Solutions offers a free pest inspection.

Once you get a professional opinion, you should now know whether or not you have a pest problem, and what bugs are getting by rent free in your home!

After this, your pest controller should let you know what your available options are when it comes to extermination and future prevention.
