How To Start Off 2018 Pest-Free


It is almost time to say goodbye to another year. Wouldn't be nice if this year you could say goodbye to pests as well? It is possible. You don't have to live with bugs crawling on your walls, spider webs in the corners of your rooms, rodents scurrying along the wall in the kitchen, and termites silently feeding on the wood of your home. When you partner with a pest control professional, you can make your home pest-free. Here are some reasons why you should consider it.

Pest Problems Feed Off Each Other

If you leave a light on outside your home and leave your curtains open at night, you're going to lure flying insects into your yard and, when you have more flying insects in your yard, you're going to have more spiders. That's just how it works.

If you get overwintering pests inside your home every year, some of those bugs don't survive the winter. They die inside your walls and become food for other pests.

When carpenter ants chew on an area of your home that has been softened by moisture, they create entry points. These entry points are used by other pests their size but are also targeted by rodents that chew and make them larger.

If you have rodents getting into your home, you shouldn't wonder why you have a tick problem or flea problem. Rodents are vehicles for ticks and fleas. Not only do they bring them into your yard to expose your pets to them, they carry them into your home and every corner of your home.

As you can see, pest problems aren't simple. There is a complex ecosystem outside your home and only an educated professional knows what methods and products work to keep all of those pests out of your home, but more importantly, how to properly deal with pest problems to address secondary issues.

Pest Professionals Use Professional Products

Many pest control products can only be applied by a certified technician or require specialized equipment to properly administer. A professional is not only equipped with the tools and products necessary, but they also have the education to apply treatments effectively.

If you're looking to have a pest-free home, partner with someone who understands the complex nature of the problem, and someone who has the products and training to address those problems appropriately.
