There are thousands of insects in nature but it is only when they start bothering us humans as we call them pests. They may trouble us in many different ways and many of them can cause serious problems. Here we present the most common pests you may encounter indoors.
How To Identify Pests Before Calling An Exterminator
Before you call a Prompt Action Pest Control, you should make sure your pest problem is not just a nuisance that can be eliminated with a simple solution to remove an attractive food source. If the pest is really more than you can handle, take the following steps and then call an exterminator:
- Describe the plague, if visible. Note its location, together with its movements, its habits and any injuries you see the imposing surrounding areas or food.
- Derive a description of the pest if you can not see it. Note any noise, droppings, nesting materials, soles or small piles of sawdust, and any damage to nearby furniture, building, plants or food stores.
- Catch a specimen of the pest if it is an insect, but only if you can do this without personal risk. Locking the insect in a jar, you can review the insect up close and identify it.

If you do not require regular visits, review the contract to determine if you can contact the pest control company when needed and not be subject to scheduled visits. Monthly service, for example, may result in costly charges for chemical treatments that may not be necessary if the pest problem has not returned.
Evaluate pest control company satisfaction policy. Ask about pest control guarantees on time service, providing remediation services, if necessary, and agree to resolve disputes within a certain time. Pay attention to the terms of your contract and evaluate how well the company can answer your questions in a satisfactory manner.
