Keep Mice, Rodents and Other Pests Away This Winter
Living in Minnesota can mean a vast array of different encounters with wild animals. Moles, mice, snakes, rats, bats, squirrels, or raccoons may be making a nice home in your yard, garage, attic, or walls of your house. In nature these animals may seem beautiful and peaceful, but when invading your area they soon become pests and nuisances.
Consider these facts: If you were to weigh every single human being on the face of the earth, and then weigh every single insect on the face of the earth, the weight of the insects would be 2.5 times greater than the weight of the human beings. Or this: for every human being on the face of the earth, there are 200,000,000 (yes, that number is 200 million) insects.
Insects play a vital role in the earth’s intricate and delicately balanced ecological system. Without insects we would not have the quality of life we enjoy today. But when insects infest our homes, lawns, buildings and public places, multiplying in geometric proportions, the delicate balance is disturbed, and our health and safety are threatened.
Ants, Bed Bugs, Spiders, Centipedes, Cockroaches, Crickets, Wasps, Ticks, Rodents, etc. enter homes, buildings and properties in search of food, warmth and security. It is impossible to keep them out! But the rule of thumb is: when you start to notice them or signs of their presence, you have a problem and need to take action.
A certified professional would be more than happy to inspect and assess your home, business or other property. If you have noticed signs of insect infestation, you might be surprised at what these experts, who know where to look, and what to look for, will find. With their knowledge of the habits and needs of insects, and their experience in learning where they live out these habits and get these needs met, you will be astounded at what they find.
After a thorough property inspection they will present you with a plan of action. The plan might include the use of insecticides, pesticides or traps. They will also do their best to locate the source of the infestation and eliminate it. If damage to your property has been done they will inform you. If your health is in jeopardy due to the insects they will tell you how to restore safe and sanitary conditions. Finally, they will educate you on how to prevent this and other infestations in the future. And please remember, before a professional does anything, make sure they discuss it with you and provide a full and complete cost estimate.
