It is not difficult to understand why people do not want pests in their home. Nothing positive can be gained by their unwanted presence and regardless of whether they are rodents or insects, the sight of the creatures alone is generally enough to send a shiver up your spine.
Of course pests are widely known to carry all manner of disease and can often breed unchecked, but despite this perhaps the place they can hurt the most are your wallet.
There is no time of the year where we are all safe from the threat of pests, throughout the winter the cold weather forces rats and mice indoors to nest and forage for food, infestations can rocket, with rodents spreading disease as well as causing damage by chewing through wiring, timber, pipes and brickwork. Whereas the summer sees in influx of birds and insects which can cause a whole host of problems.
Although many pests can be active all year round, there are certain times when they can be more problematic than others. April is ant month, while moths can cause grief in May, and woodworm in June. Flying ant day is most likely to fall in July, while wasps buzz particularly loudly in August. For rodents, October/November is their time to invade.
No Always Covered By Insurance
Did you know that many insurers do not cover home owners for any damage caused by pests? This is despite the fact that rather strangely they will pay out for damage caused by other wild animals!!
Some firms will insure your home if you take out a more expensive policy but the truth is the only way to ensure that you do not face costly repair bills is to adopt a preventative attitude and call in the pest control experts to ensure that you do not face pest issues in the first place.
