A professional pest inspection should always be included in any real estate transaction. You might think you can forgo the pest inspection, but you will likely regret it if you do. Exterminators are trained to identify and understand pests of all types. What you think might be a problem might not be an issue at all. Contractor’s Best Pest Solution are experts in real estate pest inspections. Here are four reasons why you should leave the pest inspection to the professionals.
Knows How to Identify Pests
As mentioned above, we are trained to identify pests. What you think might a problem, such as a termite infestation, could only be beneficial earthworms. Is that hole in the backyard signs of an active mole, or was it abandoned years ago? People tend to panic when they think there might be a pest problem in the residential or commercial property they are considering buying, and that is understandable. Professionals know how to identify pests and confirm they pose a problem.
Understands Their Behavior
Pest professionals also understand pest behavior. Some pests seek shelter inside your home, while others are looking for water. Some pests build nests to reproduce, while others nest for protection. Why do ants come indoors? Is it only for food? Do cockroaches come inside for food, too, or are they looking for water? What makes ground squirrels select your property for their dens? Pest control professionals understand pest behavior and can use that knowledge to prevent them.
Knows What Attracts Them
Pest control professionals also know what attracts pests, which can help you insist on renovations as part of your real estate transaction. Cracked plumbing will draw ants, cockroaches, and other insects to your property in search of water. You might even end up with roaches coming up through your drains. Holes will bring in both insects and rodents. This includes cracks in the exterior walls large enough for the pests to penetrate. A professional pest inspection can identify problems with the property.
Knows How to Really Get Rid of Them
Finally, a professional pest inspection not only identifies potential pest problems but also offers solutions to get rid of them – really get rid of them. This ensures you can purchase the property after it is pest-free and with the education you need to avoid future infestations. Or, you can also opt to purchase another piece of property if the property you are considering is really infested with pests. A professional pest inspection gives you peace of mind in your real transaction.
