With DIY pest solutions and “how-to”s all over the Internet, you may be considering how to handle your pest problem on your own. However, while there are some projects that you can do yourself at home, it’s important to know when you’re in over your head. Instead of turning to do-it-yourself solutions, you should instead hire a reliable pest control service for help.

Pest infestations can cause a lot of damage to your home and family. Anything from rodent infestations to termite infestations should be corrected by a professional service. If you believe that you may have an infestation on your hands, you should seek help as soon as possible. Here are three signs that you need to call a Longfield pest control service.

Property Damage

Have you noticed little gnawing on the edges of your furniture? Or pencil-thin tunnels running along your walls? These kinds of property damage can be a sign of an infestation. The cost of letting an infestation run out of control can be very high so be sure to keep on top of things and call a professional service as soon as possible.

Droppings and Urine

Little droppings ranging in size along with the smell of urine may indicate an infestation as well. Droppings can be riddled with bacteria and disease, especially if they are from rodents, so be sure to clean thoroughly before contacting a pest control service.

Pest Sightings

Last but not least, if you see a pest in your home, chances are that you have an infestation. While it is possible that there may only be a few mice or insects in your home, they can multiply quickly. So if you don’t have an infestation yet, you will have one soon if you don’t seek professional services to help you get your problem under control.
