Everyone loves Hawaii’s climate—especially bugs. The warm and sometimes wet weather can bring out a host of critters. While some bugs inside your home are normal, Aloha Termite & Pest Control, in Wahiawa, Hawaii, offers a few signs that you should call an exterminator.
If you notice any of these indicators inside your home, call the pest control experts:
- Excess Moisture: Moisture around your home can be common from prolonged rainy, damp weather or perhaps a leaky pipe. This excess water and moisture attract bugs, especially many of the varieties found in Hawaii such as roaches, centipedes, or caterpillars. If you notice pools of water around your home or leaks in your pipes, look out for signs of these pests.
- Damage: Visually inspect your home’s doors and window frames, deck, foundation, and attic a few times per year. Even if you don’t see bugs immediately, keep an eye out for rotting wood, wood dust, or any other leftover markings or bites that could indicate ants or termites. If the infestation is large, it is possible to also hear these bugs in action. Ants and termites can destroy your home quickly so don’t attempt to solve this problem alone. Call an exterminator who can offer expert solutions.
- Visual Signs: Mice and other critters leave indicators that they are in your home. The first sign to look for is excrement. Also, keep an eye out for anything that’s been chewed or broken into, particularly food or food containers. Inspect your home for holes or other unsealed areas that could be used an entry point. While an occasional pest is common, if you are seeing groups of bugs, especially during the day, it’s time to call an exterminator.
- Continuing Problems: If you’ve attempted to rid your home of bugs or critters and it’s not working, call an expert exterminator before the problem escalates. One bug can turn into multitudes rapidly. A professional pest control company has the staff, training, expertise, and materials to eradicate these bugs for good.
