Many people only think of hiring a pest control company after struggling with the headache of a pest infestation. Unfortunately, this isn’t the best approach to proper pest control because generally an infestation is invisible to the untrained eye until it is very well established in your home or business. That’s why regular home pest control services are the best way to protect your family’s safety and your property.
DIY Doesn’t Always Work
The problem with most do-it-yourself pest control is that it often only affects a small percentage of pests, while the main infestation remains hidden away. Sure, you’re likely to see fewer pests after setting out bait or traps, but these treatments generally only treat the surface issue, leaving the main infestation intact.
Pests Damage Buildings and Property
Wood eating pests like termites and carpenter ants destroy buildings from within. Generally by the time you see signs of damage, there’s already much more extensive damage inside your walls and floors. Similarly, some pests like silverfish destroy fibers commonly found in blankets, clothing, towels, and even couches.
Pests Can Cause Health Problems
Rodents, mosquitoes, and ticks are carriers of a variety of diseases such as Hantavirus, Lyme disease, West Nile, and Zika. Cockroaches can also cause asthma, especially in children.
