Signs It’s Time to Call an Exterminator
It can sometimes be hard to tell the difference between a harmless critter and a pest, especially when there are no obvious signs around your home. Our team is trained to know where to look, and identify pests by any damage and other signs around your home or business. Even if you have identified a pest, you might not know the extent of damage, and the population of pests you are up against. Since time only aids and abets damage, we offer free pest inspections and encourage calling an exterminator as soon as you notice potential pests.
General Guidelines on Confirming Bed Bugs
With a steady stream of tourists visiting Niagara Falls, bed bugs tag along for some sightseeing of their own. Spotting these guys can be difficult, but here are some helpful tips:
- Check all crevices around the bed, look at the box springs, headboards, bed frame, and the steam of the mattress. You will be looking for brown fecal matter or reddish colored stains.
- Inspect your skin for bite marks, bed bugs bite in groups of 3 so check for a pattern of close proximity red marks.
- Have you noticed an odd musty odor? If you have a bed bug infestation it may give off a distinctive odor that warrants a call to an exterminator.

Here’s how you can identify carpenter ants:

When is Mice Extermination Needed
Are your ears playing tricks on you or was there a scurrying scratch coming from the ceiling tiles above your bed as you try to sleep? Is there someone living in the walls?
Mice are great at keeping out of view and often are not active until the off hours when we are fast asleep. You might not see mice, but if you find droppings, or notice nibble marks on stored food, it’s safe to say they are with you.
At this point it might seem a simple trap will do, but mice are neophobic which means they fear new things in their environment, like traps. Worse yet, they breed rapidly so as you test out traps, the problem grows and they may begin to nest in hard to reach areas. Don’t leave success to guessing – professional mice exterminators understand the behavior of mice, and know how to flush out the entire infestation leaving your home on the mend.

Dealing With Rat Extermination in Niagara Falls
Even more elusive than mice, rats are a complex pest that are hard to find and very difficult to eliminate. Once your home is theirs, they aren’t leaving, not even when the weather takes a turn during warmer months.
You can’t trap your way out of the breeding cycle so if you have been laying down traps and catching 1, 2 a week, that’s only scratching the service. In order to be sure rats are gone, you will need more than traps, working to seal off major entry points and establishing a rodent bait program. This program should be designed to not only eliminate rat populations, but create an approach to keep them out.
If you notice any of the following, the best course of action is to contact a professional rat exterminator:
- Gnaw marks on food
- Pockets of foul odors
- Scratch marks
If Your Niagara Home is Buzzing, You Need a Bee Exterminator
Wall voids are attractive to honey bee swarms seeking permanent nesting sites. Once they are settled in a few problems can arise:
- Sting hazard
- Constant buzzing
- Risk of staining interior walls should the colony die and the beeswax comb melt
Though honey bees are not aggressive, they will protect their hive and there’s a chance that what you think are bees are actually wasps, or yellow jackets. Both of these types of pests are known to be aggressors and pose a much larger risk of stings and bites.
The trusted bee exterminators at EnviroPest can determine which of these pests you are up against, safely removing a swarm of bees, or tackling a colony of wasps or yellow jacks.
