Why Most Pest Problems Require Professional Services
October 20, 2019
When it comes to dealing with pests, you’ve probably tried your fair share of DIY solutions. If you had mice, you might have used mouse traps. For roaches, you probably tried a bug-killing spray from a supermarket. If you’ve had bed bugs, you probably did everything under the sun to get rid of them. While DIY solutions can sometimes prevent an infestation, they don’t guarantee results and may even do more harm to your family than to the pest you’re trying to eradicate. Professional pest control is a much better and safer option when dealing with a major pest infestation. Many pests are dangerous and can either directly or indirectly harm you and your family - from stings or bites to the spread of harmful or deadly diseases. They can also damage your home, costing you a lot of money.
Professional pest control technicians are trained to handle all kinds of pest problems safely and efficiently, leaving your home pest-free. Pest control companies have an extensive knowledge base and can provide tips for identifying, eliminating, and preventing infestations. Not every pest problem is noticeable immediately. Pests can hide in all sorts of indoor and outdoor locations such as wall voids, cabinets, drawers, closets, attics, basements, sheds, garages, leaf piles, gutters, trees, and even in your lawn. Some pests are nocturnal, so you won’t see them unless you happen to be awake late at night. You could have an infestation and not even realize it!
Professional pest control technicians can spot signs of a pest infestation because they know where to look. They’ll seek out entry points, nests, and other problem areas. If they find a pest problem, they’ll recommend a treatment plan that will eliminate the infestation and provide follow-ups to ensure that the pest won’t be coming back.
DIY solutions often fail to provide results. Pests are constantly evolving and building resistance to DIY solutions, so most of the time they don’t work. Even worse, DIY solutions often fail because they don’t target the source of the infestation, which leads to the pests coming back. DIY solutions can be a hassle on top of the other obligations in your life.
Pest control companies use professional, comprehensive methods that tackle every single area of an infestation - including the source - and help put measures in place to prevent other types of infestations. Once a company treats your property for pests, they’ll conduct a follow-up to ensure that the treatment was a success, and provide any future recommended treatment options.
