While some pests are obvious to notice in or around your property, many others are more subtle and some are not even seen at all.  But there is good news! Even the most sneaky of pests will leave a trail of evidence of their presence, but you will need to be looking.  So, before you start to worry about what could be hiding, now is the time to get educated so you can spot signs of a pest problem.

Why its a good idea to find pests sooner than later...

As time goes on, overlooking or simply not knowing a pest infestation exists, the infestation will get worse and will become more of a threat to you, your family, and your property.  Depending on the pest that has taken up residence on your property, you could end up with extensive and costly damages, the spread of harmful bacteria, food contamination, and sometimes even illness spread to your family.

Here are a few tips to help you identify pests sooner than later...

Termites

  • Wood that appears to be buckling, swollen or even appear to be water damaged.
  • Discarded wings, either inside or outside.
  • Mud tubes around the property.

Bed Bugs

  • Inspect box springs and bed frame for live or dead bugs.
  • Blood spots on sheets.
  • Empty tan colored skins that are left behind when bed bugs shed their skins to molt into the next stage.
