Apart from physically seeing the pest, there are various tell-tale signs you need to watch out for that will alert you to the presence of any unwanted guests. They include:
- Pest Droppings – This is classic sign of pest issues. Also watch out for urine trails and grease marks, as these often indicate the movement of pests throughout your property.
- Nesting – Pests typically create a nest for themselves in dark, tucked-away areas of your home or garden.
- Damage to Structures – Signs of gnawing and holes are an instant red flag of a pest problem. Similarly, if you notice small holes, especially in wooden beams, this can also signal you are in need of pest control.
- Damage to Plants – Some pests are known to devour houseplants, so you should keep an eye out for damage to their leaves and stalks as an indicator to the presence of a pest.
If you spot one or more of these tell-tale signs, you must get in contact as soon as possible, the structural integrity of your home, and your own personal health may be in jeopardy.
