Creepy crawlies can find their way into our homes at all sorts of times and in all seasons, and this is perfectly normal, but a few telltale signs will signal when it is time to call in professional pest control in Birmingham.
Spiders, wasps, woodlice, even the odd mouse can make their way indoors without there being anything to worry about.
The problem is when you have an infestation on your hands that you cannot get rid of.
Why can a pest infestation be a problem in Birmingham?
Aside of the fact that most people are not comfortable sharing their homes with bugs and rodents, the main issue around household pests is their potential to spread disease, sting/bite or cause damage.
No-one wants to be on the receiving end of multiple wasp stings – which is a very real possibility if there is a nest on your property – or wake up covered in bites.
A woodworm infestation could cause untold damage to timber structures in the home while carpet beetles will happily munch through whatever fabric they find.
Then there is the issue of rodents and flies that have feasted on compost, rubbish and other less savoury substances transferring bacteria onto surfaces and food within your home.
