It’s human nature to want to deal with it yourself when pesky critters get in or around your home — and they’re bound to eventually, especially in the South. But all those articles you’ll find online have a common theme: Sometimes it’s best to call a professional.

Throughout Arkansas, The Bug Man Inc., has been trusted since 1976 to come to the rescue when your abode has been invaded.

There are all sorts of unwelcome pests that can foul up your sanctuary. Here are just a few examples:

1 Skunks may be the most-feared house pest control problem. When a skunk sprays, the smell tends to stick around for a very long time. Let The Bug Man get the skunks out of your life.

2 Chipmunks are furry and cute — until they start to eat your landscaping and garden. We’ve all walked out the door at some point and found our flower beds in shambles or munched-on veggies in our gardens.

3 Raccoons also may look adorable, but they can be one of the worst home pest control challenges. Their favorite place to ransack is usually your garbage can, but they can pose other threats, too. A raccoon that feels threatened can be very dangerous. So, if you take matters into your own hands, you may just get bitten.

4 Rodents like rats see your clutter as a cozy place to live. Garage doors are extra tricky because of small openings around the outside of the door, not to mention you have to open the door.

5 And let’s not forget about squirrels (considered rodents also), lizards, hawks, coyotes, bears and foxes — to name a few.

The National Pesticide Information Center says it’s not safe for people or pets in the home — or the wildlife. Pests can damage electrical wiring and destroy insulation. They also can carry diseases like rabies, or parasites such as mites, fleas and ticks into your home.
