If you are a homeowner in Vienna, you may already know how quickly your peaceful home can become invaded by a host of annoying pests. From tiny critters such as ants and termites to bigger ones such as mice and rats, it can begin to seem as if your home is not safe from pest invasions. Unfortunately, these bothersome creatures can pose quite a bit of damage to your house as well.
Ants and Termites
There are many different species of ants, and since these critters are so small, they can easily enter your home through even the most minute cracks and crevices. Not only can ants invade your cupboards and contaminate your food, but some species (such as Carpenter ants) can even seriously damage your house’s foundation.
Termites are especially troublesome creatures because they enjoy making their homes in the wood of your house’s foundation. As they breed and multiply, they can quickly become a serious and expensive problem. A large colony of termites can completely destroy your home’s structure causing its wood to crumble.
Mice and Rats
Mice and rats can enter your house through such things as ductwork, spaces around pipes and through cracks in your foundation. Mice and rats are determined pests that will chew through boxes and some plastics to get to your food. Of course, this can leave your food supply contaminated.
They often build their nests inside your walls where it is warm and come out at night to forage while the house is quiet. You may not see any mice or rats in your home, but if you have them, you will spot their tiny, black droppings scattered about on counters or in cupboards. You may also hear them scratching and digging inside your walls or ceiling.
