Pest control issues can quickly go from a minor nuisance to an all-out assault. Many insects and vermin in the Pacific Northwest can be incredibly hard to extricate from a home once they’ve dug their figurative and literal claws in. Knowing when an issue can be handled with a few simple household adjustments and when a professional is needed can sometimes be tricky. Follow these suggestions to decide on the right time to call in an exterminator.
Isolate the main area of infestation, like a cupboard, under a sink, or in your crawlspace, and clean, clean, clean. There are a number of pest issues that can be resolved with a vigorous cleaning and the removal and/or destruction of infested items. Meal moths and cockroaches, for example, can be discouraged from making a home of your kitchen if, at the first sign of the pest, you remove any exposed food items, perform a deep clean in areas where food is stored and prepared, and close any window gaps. If your squeaky-clean kitchen area is still replete with pests, it may be time call in a professional.
