Importance of Pest & Wildlife Inspections for New Homeowners
Buying a home can be a stressful process. Between the packing and organizing, it may feel like there is very little time to think about anything else. But while it may not always be top of mind, it is important to schedule a pest and wildlife inspection before you move into a new home.
Before signing on the dotted line, you want to be certain that your new home is and will continue to be pest-free. Not only can a home that has been invaded by pests and wildlife become extremely costly, but it can also affect the health of your family, and the safety and the integrity of your home. At ICE Pest, we offer inspections and wildlife removal in Richmond Hill and surrounding areas of the GTA. We have the technology and expertise to diagnose the problems that the untrained eye won’t catch.
Below are common pests and wildlife to be on the lookout for when moving into a new home.
The Dreaded Bedbug
Did you know that bedbugs could live in your home for up to a year without feeding? These tiny nuisances can hide in the crevices of moulding, under baseboards and behind walls. They are not easy to spot and often get missed. Before moving into a new home, our pest control technicians will do a thorough inspection of your home, including a search for bed bugs. If your new home does eventually end up needing bedbug extermination, you will need to evacuate your new residence, do endless loads of laundry, and be stuck with expensive bills.
All this can be avoided by contacting a pest control company in Markham and surrounding areas of Toronto. We have superior technological equipment that can identify bedbugs and their dust-sized eggs. To protect the safety of both you and your family, we have non-toxic treatments available.
A mice or rat infestation can become highly problematic for a home. These pests can chew through wires, gnaw through wood, eat into your food containers, and sometimes even bring disease. It is possible that if the old homeowners dealt with a rodent problem in the past, you may still have issues. Your insulation may still be polluted with bacteria-laden feces which can cause serious health implications for you and your family. Such problems cannot be diagnosed with a quick walk-about in the new house. Instead, it is important to hire a pest control specialist in Toronto and Markham to inspect the deeper crevices of your home.
At ICE Pest Control, we have advanced methods of removal and clean up, including reinsulating, should it be required. We also offer a three-year warranty on a rodent free home after our pest proofing services have been carried out.
When to Seek Wildlife Removal in Richmond Hill
Sometimes the pests that lurk on the property of your new home may be larger than you think. Depending on your neighbourhood, there is the potential for wildlife such as raccoons, squirrels, skunks, and birds to begin nesting in your home. Even though a family of critters will usually be discovered and presumably evicted during a routine home inspection, keeping them out can be a different matter.
At ICE Pest Control, we have an array of strategies to prevent wildlife from returning. These include chimney capping, eavestrough cleaning, vent sealing and tree trimming. Our methods of wildlife removal and re-entry prevention are effective and humane. Our technicians service the entire GTA, including Richmond Hill, Etobicoke and Mississauga.
