Pest control does not have to be considered an option for home improvement. It has to be made mandatory. Employing a pest control technician out at your home on a regular basis makes a big difference. It maximizes your family’s safety from bugs. A pest control specialist will spot pests which put your family and home in danger. Thus, regular pest control service is a necessity for any Vaughan homeowner.
Probable pest problems are mitigated early
Most rodents reproduce quickly when they locate a suitable habitable to nest. It can create a soaring effect on the population of pests in your home. A specialized pest control technician has the ability to detect likely pest invasions and prevents them from surging. There’s no more stressing yourself about any pests in your home. A pest technician not only treats prevailing pest problems but also inspects for impending occurances.
Helps prevent fires
Rodents usually chew on things to file down their teeth.
Last winter was not too bad, but this year is expected to ring in more typical winter temperatures. Cold temperatures mean that rats, mice and other rodents will seek shelter your home. In fact, mice, rats, and squirrels are expected to invade homes in droves this winter, searching for a warm place to spend the frosty season. That’s why you should practice ethical pest prevention now to avoid issues later.
Once inside a structure, mice and rats can be much more than just a nuisance. Bacteria-laden and armed with continuously growing teeth that are remarkably efficient on gnawing on just about any material, rodents can spread a large number of diseases to both humans and pets, compromise the structure of a building, and even start fires by chewing through wires.
In addition to the damage they cause, rats also carry nasty diseases, such as Hantavirus and Salmonella that can cause harm to your family.
Once the warmer weather rolls around, and the cold winter makes space for springtime, ants also come out. That is why many Canadians have ant problems in March – most commonly, the carpenter ant, of the genus Camponotus, which consists of 1,000 species of carpenter ants.
How often would you take the bus or train if you knew that the chance of sharing your seat with bed bugs, cockroaches, or fleas was pretty high?
An older study of London’s public transport found that the average train carriage can contain up to “1,000 cockroaches (living behind lighting panels, ceiling panels & under the door), up to 200 bedbugs (in seat fabric), and up to 200 fleas.” Buses are typically less infested by insect pests, with the average bus holding up to 500 cockroaches, up to 50 bed bugs, and up to 50 fleas.
Not even wild animals can say no to a safe place to hide and the promise of a meal inside trains and buses. Just earlier this month, a raccoon was found beneath a seat aboard a GO train at Union Station in Toronto. Luckily, the animal wasn’t aggressive, and the Burlington Animal Services was able to remove it shortly after passengers reported its presence on the train.
Wood-burning fireplaces are an excellent way to escape the blustery weather – after all, few things are more enticing than snuggling up with a cup of hot cocoa in front of a roaring log fire – but they also give pests a chance to find a way into your home.
Raccoons, squirrels, opossums, and other animals can occasionally enter homes through chimneys in search of a denning site, where they can keep warm during winter and raise their babies until spring. To some of them, your uncapped chimney is indistinguishable from a hollow tree, and they have no idea there’s a human dwelling at the other side of it. Unlike hollow trees, however, the inside of your chimney is often damp and slippery, and some animals will likely get stuck inside.
Having a wild animal inside your chimney can be anything from a nuisance to a safety hazard.
