No one fully knows what they are doing when they buy their first home. They certainly don’t know how important keeping pests away is. If you have never considered the benefits ongoing professional pest control services could have for your Aiken property, we are here today to help you decide if it is right for you.

When Are Pests A Problem?

Most pests cannot stand the cold and die off when temperatures get too low. This is true for cockroaches, beetles, flies, mosquitoes, centipedes, and several other common home invaders. Some pests that don’t mind a little cold are rodents and certain ticks. But Aiken isn’t known for brutally cold winters, in fact, it rarely gets cold enough here for pests to be affected at all. What does this mean? It means pests are a year-round problem here.

How Not To Address Pest Problems

Are you currently handling pests on a case-by-case basis? For most homeowners, it makes sense to only deal with pests this way. The problem is, that this method often leads to several oversights and unforeseen complications. For one, many pests can carry and spread dangerous diseases. If you wait for these pests to start causing trouble before you handle them, you put yourself and your family at risk of getting sick.

Another problem reactive pest control causes is when pest problems cannot be seen. Carpenter ants and termites for instance invade homes silently and can cause tremendous amounts of damage, just out of sight. It isn’t until your wallpaper begins to bubble and your floors begin dipping that any thought of prevention comes to mind.

Proactive pest control will always be better than reactive pest control. The only way to ensure that your home is protected and your family is safe is to put in place defenses now. How can you do this? Here is what Aiken Pest has to offer.

What you choose to have done is entirely up to you. As we said, all of our plans are fully customizable to fit your needs. After you have made a decision on what services you would like done around your home, your technician will get to work. They will start by treating current pest problems in and around your home. After they are done with this they will then get to work on pest-proofing your home. Typically this includes applying a barrier of treatments around the interior and exterior of your home.

Some pests require specialty treatments, pests such as bed bugs, rodents, and termites. If you are having trouble with these pests, your technician will suggest a different course of action to have them removed.
