There is nothing worse than seeing some kind of pest crawling across the floor or in cupboards. This may be the actual pest or signs, such as mice droppings. This can occur in any home or business and needs to be taken care of immediately if the problem is not to develop into a major calamity.

Common pests are spiders, ants, rodents, beetles, bed bugs, mosquitoes and termites. Many people try to take care of the problem themselves and often use chemicals that can be toxic or only work temporarily. When a pest eradication company, such as Saint Charles Pest Control, is involved, they will use only EPA approved materials, which means no harmful fumes will be dispensed in the air.

The most common pest found in both residential and commercial locations is the rodent. Whether it is a mouse or a rat, it can not only cause a great deal of damage but can carry harmful germs.

A professional exterminator can determine the type of rodent involved, find their nests, locate their point of entry and eliminate them. These professionals are trained in rodent elimination and have the proper equipment, such as cameras, moisture meters and other items to find where even the smallest rodent is entering.

Studies have shown that a mouse can reproduce at a rate of 5 to 10 litters per year ( and a rat at twice that amount. In addition, they can cause a great deal of damage with their gnawing through clothing, food wrappers and other items.

This means, if an elimination program is not put into place, your home or business can rapidly see mice or rats running all over the property. This type of destruction is unacceptable in any type of building.

Calling a company that is experienced in this line of work is the quickest and most sensible way to go. You can find out more about pests eradication at St. Charles Pest Control ( This Company has the information, qualified pest eradicators, equipment and other materials needed to eliminate any pests you may have in your home or business.

Another pest that seems to multiply rapidly are ants. There are approximately 1,000 varieties of ants in North America each of which varies in appearance and lifestyle. Carpenter ants, which eat wood, are especially harmful to both homes and businesses. Some queen ants can live for many years and have millions of babies. (

Having these pests crawling over counters, up the walls or over floors can be devastating. Although there are a large number of ant elimination products on the grocery shelves these DIY products do not attack the source of the problem, namely the nest. These nests may be in a wall, basement, outside the building or other locations.

This is why it is important to have a professional exterminator make a thorough examination of the premises. They can identify the species and locate the nest or nests of any annoying invader of your home or business. They will explain what needs to be done for eradication of these pests and recommend actions you can take to prevent another invasion of the pest.
