Pest problem? PEMCO experts talk about hiring a pest control company
The cooler Pacific Northwest is better off when it comes to pest problems compared to places like Florida and Texas, but this region is far from pest-free. The experts at PEMCO Insurance said 1 in 5 suburban homes have rodents and people don't even know it. "A lot of times they have no clue until a cable installer or a plumber comes out to the home to do work," said Erin Gross, a Territory Manager for PEMCO Community Agents. "They go under the home, discover the issue and have to share the bad news. At that point, it's often too late. They may have significant damage and that is not covered by homeowners insurance."
