Does Belews Creeks Need Professional Pest Control?
As much as we hold on to that small-town feel, the home and business owners of Belews Creek still have big problems we have to deal with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, if you’re not focusing on pest control as one of those problems, pest and rodent infestations can soon turn into a problem that you can’t ignore.
Home Pest Control In Belews Creek, NC
As homeowners, we like to create a comfortable living space on our properties. Home should be a sanctuary where we can place our worries on the shelf for a while. However, trying to get comfortable on your outdoor deck with wasps buzzing around your lemonade isn’t exactly ideal. And finding a few minutes of privacy in your bathroom only to be interrupted by a roach is one of the worst feelings in the world.
On top of discomfort in your home, however, many property-invading pests like roaches, wasps, and rodents can also bring serious health concerns along with them. And there isn’t much you can do about it on your own. The only way to prevent pests and rodents for certain is to enlist the help of professional home pest control services. Give the experts at Ray's Pest Control a call to find out how their years of experience can keep your home and property safe from the risks that accompany pest and rodent infestations.
If you see a cockroach in your Belews Creek home, it can be a frightening experience. However, once you give it the ole “squash, scoop, and flush” treatment, you usually move on with your day. However, seeing a cockroach, especially during the day, can be a sign of a larger infestation. You see, cockroaches are nocturnal and prefer to avoid human interaction at all costs, so seeing one during the day should set off some alarm bells in your head.
Ignoring these alarm bells might just set you up for some serious trouble because of all the problems that roaches can bring to your home. First of all, they’re a severe health hazard. Roaches will carry bacteria from their typical habitats (sewers and landfills), all the way into your home, putting you at risk of incurring diseases like salmonella and E.coli, especially when they contaminate your stored food or food preparation areas.
That’s the second problem with roaches: their ability to flatten their bodies allows them to squeeze into your pantry and many food storage containers. They’ll also invade your storage boxes in the basement, contaminating linens or seasonal decorations.
To make matters worse, problem number three is that they’re pretty much impossible to get rid of on your own. They’ll invade in large numbers and hide in the walls and amongst the clutter of your home, so you hardly ever know how many you have. Plus, their ability to squeeze out of danger makes them hard to keep out or corral once they’re in.
A roach infestation almost always requires professional attention, so don’t delay. Avoid the increased health hazards by calling Ray’s Pest Control at the first sign of an infestation and get help with our cockroach control service.
When we consider the threats that termites pose to our property, we often don’t realize how common termite damage can be. If you think it won’t happen to you, then you might want to consider saving a few thousand dollars just in case.
When termite infestations go unnoticed for a year (which they usually do), then homeowners wind up with huge repair bills. A few ways to avoid this damage is to know the signs of an infestation and reduce the factors that will attract termites to your home.
To catch an infestation early enough, you’ll want to keep an eye out (or an ear) for the following signs:
- Winged termite swarms
- Sawdust along the baseboards
- Clicking noises in the walls
- Tightening around doors and windows
If you notice these signs, then it’s time to call a professional pest service. Termites cannot be eradicated with any sort of DIY home remedies. However, if you want to avoid an infestation altogether, then moisture management is the best thing you can do on your own.
You see, termites love feasting on wood that is already damaged from moisture or rot, so preventing moisture buildup by using a dehumidifier in your basement/crawl spaces can limit termite attraction. You’ll also want to monitor your pipes for leaks and use a gutter/downspout system to keep rain runoff from building up along the side foundation of the house.
These measures can be effective, but there’s no guaranteed form of DIY termite prevention. If you want a guarantee from the very real threat of termite damage, then it’s time to call Ray’s Pest Control. For all of your pest prevention needs, Ray’s Pest Control has the custom termite control solutions to fit your budget and your property.
Commercial Pest Control In Belews Creek, NC
Unfortunately, pests don’t know the difference between a house and a commercial building. They’ll bother you at work too (and the results can be even more costly). If you’re a business owner, the same invasive pests and rodents who present a health threat at home are also a threat to your employees, your customers, and your profits. Just one pest sighting from a customer can do significant damage to your reputation in the community, especially when it winds up on social media.
Pest issues can also be a threat to your inventory and productivity. If employees are distracted by pest issues, they’ll not only be unproductive but at higher risk of illness as well. The best way to protect the hard work and money you pour into your business is by enlisting Ray’s Pest Control for guaranteed commercial pest solutions.
