A-Tex Pest Management Outlines What Happens During a Pest Inspection & What to Expect
Exterior Pest Inspections: Pests tend to live outdoors and are happy there unless they find something better inside. They can get in your home in search of a place to nest or food to eat. A pest inspection will start outdoors and can identify where they are able to gain access. The professional will go around the home and locate areas that are of concern and seal them. Any gaps, cracks and holes that are large enough for a pest from a cockroach to a mouse need to be closed off. Prevention is the key to stopping a pest infestation.
Interior Pest Inspections: The inside of the house will need to be checked thoroughly. They might want to ask questions about what you have seen around the home and what areas of concern you have. They will also do a thorough inspection to check for signs that pests are already in the house. One pest that is a major concern is termites. They are a pest that eats the wood that holds up the structure of your home. When they are left unattended they can do a serious amount of damage. The inspection will be looking for common signs of termites as well as other pests that are a problem in your area.
