Leaving Christmas food out attracts pests - here are some of the tell tale signs you may have a pest problem

Christmas is a time for your family to get together. The only problem is that when families come together to enjoy food they tend to leave a mess behind – people will leave food uncovered on the counter, they will drop it on the floor, leave dirty dishes behind and so on. This is a great opportunity for pests to invade your home because they will be getting 2 things; the first is that food that is all over the house and the second is reprieve from the cold weather outside. It is up to you to know the tell-tale signs that you have a pest problem so that you can get ahead of it before you have an infestation.

The first sign you may see is their excrement – as they eat they leave it behind on countertops, the floor, in and around the sink and so on. It looks like little black beads and you will mostly see it in the morning – pests prefer to forage at night. The other sign is food that has been nibbled on – if you have a developing rat problem you will find food remains that have teeth marks on them. The other sign is the pests themselves – you may find flies or ants in your kitchen and other parts of your home.

So what should you do immediately you see signs that there are pests in your home? It is very important that you act right away. The problem with pests is how fast they multiply. In no time at all what was a dozen little creatures could swell into hundreds. Remember they have everything that they need to breed – you are giving them food and a warm place to stay.
