      Keep the pests out of your house

      If you find a few ants marching along the wall in the kitchen, it may be time to call an exterminator. It can also mean that making a few changes in your environment will likely take care of an insect or rodent problem.

      In today??s Angie??s List report, tips to keep your home pest free.

      Angie??s List founder Angie Hicks says, ??If you find that you have unwanted bugs in your house a lot times people might try to tackle this project on their own, but if you see that you have a persistent issue it??s probably time to call in the expert. You can call a pest control company that can come in and they have a lot of different projects they can use to take care of the situation.??

      If you find that you have unwanted bugs in your house a lot times people might try to tackle this project on their own, but if you see that you have a persistent issue it??s probably time to call in the expert. You can call a pest control company that can come in and they have a lot of different projects they can use to take care of the situation.

      Hicks says, ??One thing consumers need to remember is not all methods are going to be good for children or for pets in your home so be sure to ask questions whether you are doing it yourself or hiring a professional.??

      Pest Control Contractor Daniel Packard says, ??Definitely if you have a home located on a lake or a body of water or your home is on a wooded lot you??re definitely more prone to having an insect issue than somebody else would.??

      ??When hiring a pest control company you want to look for a local company with a good reputation because a lot of times they are going to offer warranties on their work so you want to be sure they will be around to stand behind that. Additionally, many states do require licensure for pest control companies. Confirm that is in good standing. Finally, see if they are a member of the National Pest Association as well,?? says Hicks.

      As for termites , if you see a big swarm of little insects that look like flying ants, there is a good chance you might have a termite swarm. If so, call a professional for an inspection.
