When a home has been left vacant for an extended period of time, pests often start to take up residence in the home. If you have recently purchased a home that sat vacant for a long time, it is best to hire a pest control company to treat the home before you move your family into it. The following guide provides you with a few things the pest control company can do to ensure you move into a home that is free of unwanted guests.
Remove Pests in the Attic
There are many times when bats and rats take over the attic of a home when it has been left vacant. The attic is often a dark place that is ideal for the animals to live in comfort. Rats and bats carry diseases and it is best to leave extermination of the animals to the professionals to ensure your safety.
Inspect for Termites
Termites can create nests under a home without them being obvious to the typical homeowner. A pest control technician will know how to spot signs of a termite infestation and be able to treat the nests to ensure that your home does not get destroyed by termite damage. Treating the home right away will keep the damage caused by termites to a minimum.
Have the Yard Treated for Maximum Comfort
Before you move your family into the new house, it is best to have the yard treated to keep snakes and mosquitoes at bay. Mosquitoes love to breed in shallow, still water. If the yard has not been well maintained, there is a good chance that there are many mosquito breeding grounds in the yard. The treatments are safe for use around pets and children and can make sure you can make the most of your backyard at all times.
The pest control technician will inspect the home from top to bottom to make sure there are no pests living in the house that you do not want there. Once the house has been completely cleared, you will be able to move your family into it with the peace of mind that it is as safe as it can be.
