Pest Inspections St. Louis
Whether you are buying a home in the St. Louis area, selling your home or simply getting back on schedule with necessary home maintenance, home pest inspections are key in protecting your financial investment and your family's health.
Professional pest inspections identify which pests are in your home, determine the extent of the problem and provide solutions to eradicate the pests from your home. Getting a pest inspection done is well worth the small investment to ensure your home is free from pests.
Importance of Pest Inspections
Pests are not only nuisance, but they may also cause significant structural damage to your home. Pests such as termites, carpenter ants and carpenter bees are known to chew through wood. Rats, mice, squirrels and other animals may eat through wiring, increasing the risk of fire. Pests also carry with them diseases that are harmful to humans, including hantavirus, rabies and plague.
Common Household Pests
There are many common household pests in the St. Louis area.
Mice and rats can squeeze through a hole as small as a nickel or quarter and have a litter of pups every six weeks.
Termites and carpenter ants are attracted to damp wood. They excavate living quarters through the wood, damaging the wood and causing it to crumble, leading to serious structural damage.
Other common household pests in your home could include spiders, cockroaches, centipedes, millipedes, gnats, flies, bees, squirrels, raccoons and bats.
