If you notice a bug infestation in your home, it’s important to address it as soon as possible. Here are five things you can do to ensure it’s eliminated and doesn’t become a recurring issue.

  1. Identify the bug or pest: The first step in handling an infestation is to identify the what kind of problem you have on your hands. Identifying the type of infestation will allow an extermination company to devise a plan for managing the infestation. Some common household pests are termites, flies, ants, mosquitos, rats, bedbugs, mice, and cockroaches.
  2. Safety measures: After identifying the pest, getting your family members and pets to safety is vital. Some pests can be more dangerous than others, so ask your extermination company what steps you need to take to keep everyone safe until the infestation is under control.
  3. Locate the entrance spot: Knowing where the pest entered your home is an excellent way to start getting it under control. Bug infestations usually begin or enter your home through the bathroom, the kitchen, or the backyard.
  4. Eliminate the pest: Identifying and locating the pest is a big part of eliminating it. There are different ways to handle a bug infestation. Some you can do yourself, and others require chemicals and substances that only professionals should handle. Toxicity levels

Pest experts say that there are three main reasons for infestations: moisture, food, and shelter.
