If you've noticed pests in your house, you probably want to get to the root of the problem. Where are these pests coming from?

When you call a pest control specialist, they will conduct a thorough investigation of your home. This usually starts with a pest control inspection. Here's what you can expect during a typical pest control inspection.

You'll Talk About the Pests You've Seen

First, the pest control specialist will ask you questions about the pests you've seen and where you've seen them. If you can provide information about when the pests seem to have been most prominent, this will be helpful as well.

They'll also want to know if you've noticed any other signs of pests, such as droppings or damage to your home. You can provide information about where you saw the droppings, which can help pest control specialists look for pests.

The Specialist Examines the Perimeter of Your Home

Next, the specialist will take a look around the outside of your home. They're looking for any cracks or holes where pests could be getting in.

They'll also look for any sources of food or water that would attract pests. Once they've identified potential problem areas, they'll make recommendations for how to fix them. This may involve sealing up cracks, repairing damage to your home, or removing sources of food and water.

They'll Inspect the Inside of Your Home

After examining the outside of your home, the pest control specialist will come inside to take a look around. They'll start in the basement or crawlspace and work their way up. They may also use a device to detect pests that are hidden from view.

Once they've finished their inspection, the pest control specialist will provide you with a report of their findings. This report will include information about the pests they found and where they found them. It will also include recommendations for how to get rid of the pests and prevent them from coming back.

You Can Schedule Pest Control Services After an Inspection

After a pest control inspection, you may decide to schedule pest control services. This can help you get rid of existing pests and prevent new ones from coming in. Pest control services may involve using pesticides, traps, or other methods to get rid of pests.

Call a Specialist for Pest Control Help

If you have any questions about the pest control inspection process or the report, be sure to ask the specialist. They'll be happy to answer your questions and help you get rid of the pests in your home. 

About Me
Do You Have Insects and Critters in Your Home?

Do you have unwanted varmints in your home? My name’s Jason Blaine. We used to have many unwanted, non-rent paying, living creatures in our home. In the spring and summer, it was mostly insects. Come fall when the weather began to cool off, the larger critters made their way to our attic. We would sit in the house and hear them scurrying around above us. Our cats were the only ones that seemed to like the alien invasions. They got to play with the insects and hunt the rodents. I didn’t find it to be the least bit pleasant. I finally called in a pest control service and am I glad I did! I’m going to share about our pest control maintenance service. I’ve learned a great deal about the chemicals and how they are now safe for humans. I hope to provide you with helpful information.
