Pest Infestation Signs to Look Out For
Property owners and managers in Central often don’t realise they have a pest infestation until the damage is done. This could be because they are not educated on what to expect from a pest infestation or that they are not familiar with the indicators. Here are some warning signs and signals to look out for:
- Pest droppings
- Dirt smudges on walls
- Unfamiliar smells and sounds
- Damage to fabrics and plants
- Bite marks and holes in furniture
- Rodent body parts
What to Do If You Suspect a Pest Infestation in Western Cape
The first thing you should do when suspecting an infestation is to look for clues and evidence. As we’ve said before, if you have a pest infestation, you’ll find proof very soon. Look in dark and moist areas — these type of areas are prone to pest invasions, especially cockroaches. Once you switch on the light, they will scatter about.
It is advisable to act fast if you want to limit the damage that pest can cause during an infestation. Look for pest control specialists in your area to come and fumigate your property. If you want the best results, call the most reliable pest control company in Central, Western Cape — Pest Control Central.
Regular Pest Control Can Prevent Pest Infestations in South Africa
It’s clear just how dangerous and damaging pest infestations can be so it’s best to prevent them at all costs. And, in case you need more reasons to consider regular pest control treatments, here are five more.
Pests Carry Diseases That Make You Sick
Pests like flies, rodents and cockroaches spread germs and diseases in the property they infest. Any uncovered food will be contaminated with excretions, hair and dead skin, ultimately spreading harmful bacteria. If you suffer from asthma and other respiratory illnesses, these pesky little critters will worsen your symptoms.
Rodents may bite or scratch occupants which can lead to illnesses such as rat-bite fever and other serious diseases. Rodent urine can cause leptospirosis — a serious bacterial infection.
Pests Cause Inconceivable Damage
Aside from the obvious health risks, pests can wreak havoc in your home, damaging your belongings and compromising the structure of your property. When food is contaminated, you’ll have to throw it out. And since groceries cost money… you get the point. They also gnaw on anything in their way to keep their teeth sharp. Even elements such as steel and concrete are no match for them. Should you be so ‘lucky’ to get a termite infestation, your home’s structure could suffer irreparable damage.
Regular Pest treatments Can Save You Money in the Long Run
Who would want to have the added expense of monthly pest control services? Anyone who wish to protect their premises from pest infestations and the risks associated with them. Prevention is better (and more affordable) than cure.
By setting up a monthly pest control treatment schedule with Pest Control Central, you ensure that our technicians inspect and treat your premises on a monthly basis. While there are quarterly and bi-annual service schedules available, these are not as effective as monthly visits.
How to Reduce the Risk of a Future Pest Infestation
It’s better to be safe than sorry. Preventing pests in the first place will cost you less than dealing with a relentless pest infestation. It’s also better to take the necessary precautions to reduce the risk of pests entering your property. Below are some preventative measures you can take to lower the risk of a pest infestation.
Clean Your Property Regularly
Pests feel right at home in dirty environments so it is essential to keep your home and office clean by sweeping, vacuum cleaning, mopping and dusting it on a regular basis. Food particles might go unnoticed but they attract pests. If you clean your home often, it won’t attract pests.
Keep Food Covered
Food smells attract pests like rodents, cockroaches and ants so keep food covered at all times unless you want them to contaminate it. Foods that are mushy and on the verge of rotting should be disposed of immediately.
Empty Garbage Bins
Garbage bins have a lot of different waste (organic and inorganic) and thus provides a hotspot for all kinds of organisms. The food waste also attracts pests, giving them a passageway into your home. If your garbage bin is full, make sure you empty it right away to prevent pests from invading your property.
Seal All Holes and Cracks
You would be surprised at the size needed for pests to enter your home — super tiny. So, if you notice any small cracks, holes and crevices anywhere in your property, seal them right away.
