Have you recently inherited a house from a hoarder? That is probably not the only thing you've inherited. Unfortunately, hoarder homes can come with plenty of "extras"—but they're, typically, not the kind of things that you'll want to keep. Filled with excess junk, trash, food, and rarely, if ever, cleaned, hoarder houses are the perfect breeding ground for all kinds of pests, including mice, cockroaches, spiders, fleas, rats, and silverfish. Getting rid of these creepy crawlies will not be an easy task, and it may even be dangerous to your health.
Winter is in full-gear, which means you might have stopped worrying about the pest problems you faced during the summer. While you don't have to worry about flies, mosquitoes, and ants during the winter, that doesn't mean you should put your guard down. The fact is that there are still quite a few pests that can wreak havoc on your life during the winter months. Some of them include rats, mice, and spiders.
Bedbugs are a common household pest that will take up residence in any soft fabric or surface within your home, not just your bedding. Bedbugs are notoriously prolific in their breeding, and a small population can quickly swell to a massive infestation if not address immediately. In order to prevent this from happening in your home, you should keep an eye out for these four early warning signs associated with having bedbugs in your home so that you can contact a pest control specialist as soon as they show up.
Mice are one of the most common types of household pests. They can carry diseases, get into your food, and cause a significant amount of structural damage to your home behind the walls and in other out of sight areas. However, due to their nocturnal nature and their small size, it can be hard to identify when you have mice in your home. Fortunately, there are a few warning signs that you can keep an eye out for to determine when you should contact an exterminator before any of the above problems manifest themselves.
