Many types of unwanted critters can invade our environments - from rodents to birds, insects and other pests can cause problems when they come into your space and take up residence! While preventative measures, such as attempting to close up all cracks and crevices that could be possible points of entry to your home and keeping all food in sealed containers are good practice, sometimes there’s just nothing you can seem to do to keep them out.
Depending on the time of year and your environment, you might end up dealing with a variety of pests moving into your home. From mice moving in to avoid the chills of a snowy winter, wasps abuzz with activity building new nests in the spring, or ants on a continuous march to your pantry during the summer months, you can drive yourself crazy trying to keep them out! But don’t worry, even if they’re in before you’ve realized it, it’s never too late for pest control! We provide Ottawa, Gatineau, and surrounding area homes our expertise, our skills, and our experience when it comes to identifying and dealing with unwanted houseguests.
What Type of Animal or Insect is Causing You Problems?
Figuring out what type of creatures you’re dealing with is the first step towards getting rid of unwanted guests. Sources of food, breeding grounds, and spaces to raise their young are all key factors in figuring out just what you’ve got in your home. You might be able to easily figure out that you’ve got mice thanks to seeing their droppings around your kitchen cupboards but sometimes identification is a little more complex than that. Keep an eye out for tracks, trails, nibbled-on food, unusual sounds and smells, and anything else that’s out of the ordinary and you think might be related to your unwelcome critters.
