Many homeowners use spring time as an excuse to finally get their home in the shape that it deserves. Landscaping projects, fertilization, new garden boxes and even building a deck out back are all jobs that are fun to get done in the spring time. Not only can these projects improve the look and feel of your home, but they will also add value to your home. Your home is one of your biggest investments and so you should take every measure to protect it. One step that will ensure the value of your home does not decrease is by getting a professional termite inspection.
Many homeowners make the huge mistake of not hiring a professional pest control service to regularly treat their home. We are a few weeks into spring and if you have not seen any insects around or inside of your home, you may be thinking you have no need for a professional pest control service. This type of thinking could potentially leave you with a major pest infestation throughout your home by the end of the summer. Do not assume that your home is immune to insects and rodents this spring and upcoming summer. Contact Eagle Pest Services today to begin regular maintenance visits from a professional pest technician.
Cockroaches are one of those types of pests that are really not good for anything and can cause some panic when you see one run across the floor. They are a sneaky pest and hide during the day so they are not seen. At night when the house is dark and quiet they tend to sneak out and go on the hunt for food and water. That is why most people tend to see them when they go in the kitchen for a late night snack. When you turn on the light, they all run to the edge of the room and hide under a cabinet or appliance. Once you start to see pests such as cockroaches around your home, the problem is worse than you think. Cockroaches are very cautious and will stay hidden so that you are not aware of their presence. If you see just a few, there are likely many more you aren't seeing.
One of the worst thoughts to have running through your mind as you lay on your pillow at night is the chance of a bed bug somewhere close by. One of the most difficult insects to remove from a home is the bed bug. Homeowners lose a great deal of sleep with the thought of bed bugs crawling through their sheets or onto their pajamas. On the other hand, some homeowners have no idea that they have a bed bug problem until they begin to take the bite marks on their skin seriously.
