When it comes to household pests like ants, termites, and even mice, people have a lot of mistaken ideas and misconceptions. One of the most common issues – and one that people really struggle with – is that the presence of household pests doesn’t mean the house is dirty.
Here’s the facts: household pests are animals, and animals have certain needs. They need a place to be safe from the elements and from predators. They need a place to have their babies. They need a place to eat. All of these things can be found in even the most pristine home or business. Pests don’t discriminate. If they see an opportunity to get their needs met, they take it.
As a Marshfield exterminator, we can tell you we’ve gotten rid of pests and problem insects in homes that were so clean you could eat off the floor. In fact, pests will even invade vacant properties that are 100% mess free!
Termites aren’t attracted by garbage or waste – they’re there because they want to eat the wood your house is made of! The same is true of carpenter ants, who can do so much damage tunneling through the timbers of your home. Mice are largely driven by the need for shelter and nesting space.
If you see pests in your home, whether it’s ants, termites, bed bugs, mice or other rodents, you don’t need to feel ashamed or upset. There’s no amount of housekeeping you can do to keep a hungry termite away from wood! What you can do, and what you should do, at the first sign of pest problems is call in a professional exterminator in Marshfield.
