Pest Inspection Tips And What To Expect

If you suspect there are pests on your property the best thing you can do is have a pest inspection done. A comprehensive site survey is just one of the services you can expect from a good pest control firm like Diamond. Our technicians will assess if you have pests living on your premises and how they are getting in. We will also find out exactly what type of pests they are, and the severity of the infestation. Finally, we will advise you on the best course of action. In this article, we will briefly go over some aspects of what to expect from a pest inspection and how it works.

Why you need a professional for a pest inspection

Our technicians always put appropriate post pandemic solutions on place. During the inspection, they will behave and be dressed in a Covid secure manner. We will use a variety of techniques to search the property from top to bottom. This includes all the hidden places where pests like mice often build nests, such as your loft space and ceilings. When doing this, we will look for signs of pest habitats and also visible sightings of the pests. If pests are found we will advise you on how to get rid of them, via both pest proofing and eradication treatments.

If you think you have pests on your property, isn’t a pest inspection something you can do yourself? Unfortunately, the answer is no. Pests often nest in and come from places that are difficult to ascertain. Not only that, pests are very good at hiding, and are often very difficult to find.

This is why it’s absolutely critical to call in a professional. Unless you know what to look for and where to look, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll find the root of the issue. You need to be thorough, and have experience and knowledge. This is why it pays to call in a professional like Diamond.

How long will a pest insepection take to do?

There are a variety of factors which determine how long a pest inspection will take. These include the type and size of your property and also the severity of the possible infestation. For example, it takes more time and effort to inspect a large warehouse vs. a small residential home. In this, case it may take hours to go through your premises and find the source of the pest problem.

On the other hand, if you have a standard size home, the inspection won’t take long. In this situation the cost of an inspection will be less. After our initial assessment, we can take things from there. This will either involve doing the treatment righ away. Or organising a convenient time to book in the procedure.

Whether you are a commercial property owner, an existing resident or a new homeowner needing a peat inspection, ultimately the best thing to do is contact our office and explain your situation. We will then give you a quick quote over the phone and arrange for one of our team to come out to you.
