Mice, Rats, and Ants! Oh My!

MouseEvery homeowner deals with pests in their household at some point. Some are easier to get rid of than others. A few of the more troubling pests include:


Ants can be a plague in many homes. Whether it is a few ants or a large nest, the problem usually is hard to measure on the surface. Some home remedies such as finding the nest and pouring boiling water onto it may be satisfying, but will only take care of a few thousand, compared to the millions in the nest.


Wasp nests can be dealt with easily if they are in the ground. First you find where the wasps are going into the soil. After that point you can solve the problem with a puffer bottle of powder from the hardware store. You then squirt the powder around the nest entrance and the wasps will carry it in.
Some wasp cases can be intensified if the nest is up a tree or under the roof of the house. Do you want to be on a ladder surrounded by thousands of angry wasps? I didn’t think so! Forget it and call in the professionals.


Mice like to find their way indoors in the fall, when it starts to get cold outside. The first sign of mice is rustling as they scamper to build their nest. If you delay getting help, matters will only become worse! You will find food packets gnawed and small black mouse droppings in your kitchen.


Rats are common problem in late summer/early fall. In addition to damage your home, they can also carry many deadly diseases. If you see a rat, chances are there are more than you think; they tend to move in groups and reproduce quickly. Call a qualified pest control company to evaluate your problem before it becomes a catastrophe.

Pest control companies need to be considered for the fast and effective results when it comes to getting rid of unwanted pests. They have the expertise and know-how to deal with any nuisance, no matter how big the issue.
