Signs It’s Time To Call In The Pest Control Experts

Sign # 4 – Cast Shells and Dead Bugs Indoors

If you spot cast shells or casings of bugs who have entered into a new life stage, this could be a sign that you have a pest infestation. Molting is typical among insect species that shed their exoskeletons when they grow such as bed bugs, carpet beetles, cicadas, earwigs, and cockroaches. If you find cast shells indoors, this may be the sign of a pest problem.

Another sign similar to that of molting is when you start finding increasing numbers of dead bugs inside your home. While it’s normal to find bug carcasses around the exterior of your home and outside of windows, frames, and panels, it’s when you begin finding them inside that there could be a larger issue. If you notice more than two dead bugs of the same species inside your home, call a pest control professional right away to schedule an inspection. The sooner you take care of the problem, the better.  

Sign #5 – You See Nests

Pests make their nests inside and outside of homes using everything from organic yard waste and shreds of paper to wood shavings and cardboard scraps. Rodents typically nest in dark, damp areas such as attics and crawl spaces, as do some species of insects such as ants, wasps, bees, and other flying pests. If you spot a nest anywhere in or around your home, it could be a sign of a larger problem, so you’ll want to call Critter Wranglers immediately.

Sign #6 – Pest Sightings

If you actually see the insects or rodents in your home, even if you only spot one, this could be a sign that there are more pests hiding within the walls, ceilings, and dark voids of your home. Oftentimes, it’s when pests are identified but not taken care of that a small problem quickly turns into something much worse. It’s best to contact the experts for pest control services.
