Home Invaded by Pests, and the DIY Route is Not Working? Then Get Off Your Wallet, and Get a Pro!

We own some property in the country, and it is mostly wooded which tends to bring all manner of natures best pests out of the woods looking for a free meal, and a place to hang out. We do our best to keep nature where nature belongs, but there are times when good old mother nature has a different plan for us!

We can handle the day to day things in stride, like the occasional ant or spider, using simple over the counter measures, but once in a while some aggressive little pest gets past our defense systems, and tries to invade our space. We have no trouble with these furry little creatures living all around us, but we have no place for them inside our home.

So there are occasions when the pest is more than the average homeowner can manage, so we call in the professionals! In our area there are quite a few good companies to choose from. We have dealt directly with only a few of them. My first choice is almost always to take the “Do It Yourself” route, but if there is something available on the internet or at our local hardware store, I will most certainly give that a shot before calling in the bomb squad.

We have had mice break into the barn, and ants moved into the basement. We have had bats in the attic, and chipmunks under the porch. There was a Raccoon trying to get into the dog food in the garage! Once we had a flea problem at a rental property, and I am here to tell you, it was the most pervasive and stubborn little pest we have ever encountered! These creatures are all very tenacious, and some are also stealthy! In the old days some of these critters would succumb to the instantaneous effects of Acute lead poisoning. You see my father in law, god rest his gentle soul, was amazing with a 12 gauge shotgun, shooting trap and skeet at the expert level, in fact he was an Olympic alternate for 1976 trap and skeet team. He could blast some of these critters into dust in just one shot! Those gruesome days of shooting at things are well behind us now. These days we try to be as earth friendly as we possibly can in our efforts to draw a line in the grass between their habitat and ours! I have recently learned that many people are devising better deterrent tactics to be used when fending off these little creatures. Most of these are much more earth friendly than liquid poisons, and harmful sprays. Searching the internet yields a plethora of good advice on natural items which irritate the pests to the point they will not want to invade your space.

Once it becomes obvious that we are well outnumbered, I usually call on the best local crew of pest control people we know in our area. We have worked with the people at Patton Pest Control, and they are top notch!
