If you have a pest infestation, it's important to take steps to get rid of them as soon as possible. The best way to get rid of pests is to call a professional exterminator. Our pest exterminators will identify the type of pests and use the correct methods to get rid of them. There are also some things you can do yourself to get rid of pests, such as sealing cracks and crevices around doors and windows, using screens on doors and windows, and keeping your home clean and free of clutter.
Another cause of a pest infestation is damage and health problems in or on your property. Rodents and small insects carry diseases which can be harmful to family members. Wet wood is a target for insects which can cause a depreciation of structure. Once a colony of pests is established in or around the home, it is very difficult to eliminate them from the property, which can exacerbate any existing damage to the home.

Why Do Pests Go Inside Homes?
Pests are looking for a warm, comfortable place to live and breed, especially in the wintertime. They can enter through cracks around windows and doors, or even through the tiniest holes in walls or ceilings. Once they're inside, they can quickly spread throughout the home, causing damage and creating an unsanitary environment.
That's why it's important to take steps to prevent pests from entering your home in the first place, such as sealing cracks and crevices around doors and windows, using screens on doors and windows, and keeping your home clean and free of clutter.
Where Do Pests Stay
Pests can live in any area of a home, but they often tend to congregate in certain areas. Some common places where pests can be found include:
In the kitchen
Pests like to live in warm, moist areas, and a kitchen is a perfect place for them because of all the food and water sources. They can contaminate food and spread disease, so it's important to take steps to prevent them from entering the kitchen.
In the bathroom
Like the kitchen, the bathroom is a warm, moist area that is full of potential food and water sources for pests. They can also cause damage to plumbing and fixtures.
In the loft
The loft is a dark, isolated space that is perfect for pests to live and nest in. They can cause a lot of damage by chewing through wires or insulation, and they can also be a fire hazard.
In the basement
The basement is another dark, isolated space that is often damp and cluttered, making it an ideal home for pests. They can contaminate stored food and damage property.
