Common NC Pest Questions Answered | Clegg’s Pest Control

In the February issue of Clegg’s News: answers to common pest control questions, commercial businesses and rat infestations, and tips to help you prepare for an emergency.

You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.

Our pest professionals hear a lot of great questions as they meet with customers. Everything from, “Why should I use a pest control company when I can do it myself?” to, “Is it better to use termite bait stations (like Sentricon™) vs. periodic termite treatments?” to, “What steps can I take to keep the pests out of my house?” We have put together an article that answers these and many other common questions we hear on a regular basis. Read the full article, post your question on our Facebook page, ask us on Twitter or email your questions to us!

Focus on Rats

If you have a commercial business, you may have an issue at some point with rats. Our commercial pest control team is seeing an increasing number of calls for help removing rats, with a large number of these calls involving roof rats. Certain types of businesses are more prone to rat infestations. These include farms, feed mills, produce warehouses, and restaurants, among others, though all businesses and residences may have problems with rats.

How do I know if I have rats? Until you have a full blown infestation, you may not see any rats. They are usually nocturnal and prefer to hide from people. They will, however, leave evidence of their presence. Things to look for include rat droppings; chewed wood, walls and baseboards; dirt or grease marks along commonly traveled paths; a musky odor; small footprints in dirt or dust; smashed vegetation around points of entry; or the presence of live or dead rats.

Are You Prepared?

It seems like every time a winter storm threatens the Carolinas, the stores are mobbed with shoppers buying staples and social media is flooded with people joking about milk, bread and toilet paper! In reality, though, it pays to be prepared. While your “winter storm” emergency kit may have some different supplies than your summer “hurricane” kit, it’s important to consider what you’ll do in different types of emergencies. What happens if you lose power for a week or if flooding or fire means you must evacuate your home?

There are some great sources out there that provide tips on what to include in an emergency kit and how to prepare for different types of emergencies. One of our favorites is the Ready.gov website operated by FEMA. They provide a list of basic emergency supplies (water, food, flashlight and batteries, first aid kit, wet wipes, etc.) as well as specifics by season (i.e., in winter add blankets and warm clothing, include mosquito repellent in your summer kit). They also provide help with finding local shelters, should they be needed. The Clegg’s team encourages you to build and maintain your own emergency kit and develop a plan for your family. Stay safe!
