If you are awakened at night by scratching and squeaking noises, or have an extensive pest infestation. A particular pest may be difficult to control, requiring the services of a pest control service. Either of these instances is a good indication that it is time to consult a professional. A lot of people believe they can get over-the-counter products from the hardware store or online and spray away their pest problems. So to answer the question of when to call an exterminator it depends on the following factors: the type of pest, the extent of the problem, the location of the problem, and your tolerance level.
Many homeowners try to tackle their pest problem by themselves. They end up wasting money on pesticides from their local DIY store that just don’t get the job done. These chemicals act like a band-aid, providing a temporary fix for a long term problem.
Without a doubt the most influential reason you should hire a pest control service is to protect yourself and your family from disease. An alarming amount of the pests that find their way into our homes and gardens carry easily transmittable diseases that can have dire consequences on your health. Some pests directly transmit disease by stinging or biting, while others pick up disease-causing bacteria and parasites and spread them. You might think it is easy to eradicate a pest infestation on your own. There are many products on the market that suggest it’s easy. One of the downsides to products is that chemicals in these products can be harmful.
By hiring a team of highly trained pest control professionals you eliminate the risk of accidentally exposing yourself, and your family, to harmful chemicals. In the same way that you’re not exposed to the harmful chemicals found in household pest control products, by hiring a pest control service to do the ‘dirty work’ you’re spared the clean-up. Another issue that may arise is danger to your pet. Some pests that are harmless to humans can be extremely dangerous to animals.
Reclaim your home. Improve your health. Eliminate the risk of disease. Protect your family and pets. These unwanted, unsightly and undesirable creatures belong in their natural habitat, not your home and yard. Hiring a pest control service comes with the benefit of peace of mind.
