No one wants to see pests crawling around their home. As soon as you spot a pest, you want to get rid of it. While you can often take care of pests on your own, there are times when you will need the help of a professional. Here are some signs it is time to call an exterminator:

The same pests keep returning to your home

If you see a single pest, that doesn’t mean you have an infestation on your hands. However, it is a red flag if you notice the same pests keep coming back. If you have tried everything and you can’t get rid of the pests in your home, it might be time to consult an exterminator for help.

Gnaw marks or holes around your home

Some pests will leave holes or gnaw marks on walls, door frames and wooden furniture. Such pests include termites, carpenter ants, rats and mice. In addition to leaving holes, termites and carpenter ant can compromise the structure of your home. While rats and mice may cause less significant damage, they are carriers of various diseases. Therefore, it would be wise to call an exterminator as soon as you see holes or gnaw marks in the wood in your home.

Droppings and debris

Even if you don’t see the pests, they tend to leave droppings and debris behind. Rats and mice, for example, avoid detection by coming out at night when you are asleep. But you may find their droppings in corners, cupboards or other areas where food is kept. An exterminator will be able to get these rodents out of hiding to remove them from your home.

Parts of insect bodies

You will find that most insects have a short lifespan. So, often you will find their remains around your house. If you find parts of insects frequently and in large quantities, this is a sign that you have an infestation and you need to call an exterminator.
