Unfortunately pests are regular part of life, if we live in a suburban or even urban area and dealing with them can be sometimes quite hard and unpleasant. Generally, first steps include identifying which pests inhabit your territory. Of course pests can be both plants and animals, but here of course we talk about animal pests!

This usually correlates with the geographical area where you live, for instance if you live in subtropical climate, pests can be quite unusual! If you are clueless on how to identify pests, check the marks they leave and their excrements, but generally you can clearly see their deeds in your residence.
Once you have identified what pests are haunting your place, consider few options to deal with them. Remember that if you put some poison to be found by the pest, your lovely pet can also find it! So, it is better to hire a professional team that can handle your pest problems humanely, avoiding unnecessary killings.By the way, killing of certain pests, that can get into your house by accident, like killing of bats, is prohibited and so the pest control team can deal with your problem instead of you! Another thing is that they can actually offer more of pesticide, which is less toxic and unavailable to general masses. In case of a bigger animal, which gets into your household, you can always try to use a trap and capture the poor animal yourself. However, don’t forget that squirrels, rats and such can be transporting rabies, which is deadly if left uncured. As on dealing with insects, it is most certainly better to call the professionals, however some basic precautions can reduce your problems: don’t leave any crumbles or food out in the open view, avoid making moist and dark corners, treat window frames and baseboards with insecticides.
