When it comes to getting rid of household pests, we often use do-it-yourself pest control methods. It is important to remember that a well-kept house does not mean your house is rid of pests, and fortunately, it has nothing to do with you. While mouse traps and picking up around the garbage cans are excellent methods for keeping some common pests away, routine pest control from a pest control professional is vital to control pest infestations.
When you’ve signed up for routine pest control for preventative measures, you do not need these treatments often. There are monthly, bi-monthly, and quarterly treatments available, and for common pests on properties that do not have major issues with pests, quarterly services are often the best option. A contractual agreement with a reputable pest control company means affordable and effective pest control treatments, averaging $100 to $300 per treatment just four times per year.
Pests can pose health threats for commercial and residential properties alike. High-quality pest control and sanitation are crucial to keeping our homes and business safe and clean for improved quality of living. The presence of pests can also affect the health and safety of your food – especially for businesses in the food industry. Common pests such as ticks, rodents, and mosquitoes can carry terrible, and even fatal, diseases. Ticks carry Lyme disease, mice and rodents can carry rabies. We do not want these pests in our homes or around our employees, so preventative pest control services are vital.
Pests can also cause damage to your property and your belongings beyond getting into the pantry or the garbage. Termites and carpenter ants, especially, are capable of destroying your home from the bottom up. Bed bugs are particularly hard to get rid of and can live in clothing, blankets, towels, and mattresses. Because these pests can come back after treatment, quarterly pest control treatments are necessary to keep them away. Pest control means stress-free, and safe living for you and your property.
