The short and long of it is yes, you do! Pests are no joke and if they’re able to infiltrate your home or office, that’s when things go from bad to worse. They destroy property, carry diseases, generally just cause a headache and can be difficult to get rid of once they’ve settled. That’s where routine pest control comes in. Here’s why it’s important to have pest control and maintenance services on a routine basis!
Do It For Your Health!
Rodents and insects can carry harmful diseases that can put your health at risk. Mice infestations can bring Hantavirus, Salmonellosis and Lymphocytic Chorio-Meningitis into your home or workplace and can be very dangerous for everyone involved if not taken care of properly. Pests of any kind will carry diseases and illnesses where they nest and the only way to really prevent coming into contact with an infected pest is to keep all pests out of your property. You can do this with regular pest control and inspections!
How Often Should You Bring in Pest Control Experts?
This can depend on if you’re dealing with an active infestation or you’re just keeping up with routine pest inspections, but typically exterior pest control treatments should be done every 3 to 4 months while the interior should be done much more regularly at bi-monthly treatments. This of course depends on how extreme the infestation is and you may require more or less frequent appointments. For inspections, try to have your property inspected every season as the seasonal changes can cause pests to actively seek out shelter in your space.
Stick with the Professionals
It’s tempting to save money by just doing it yourself, but when it comes to pests, you’re basically playing with fire. If you’re not 100% sure what you’re looking for, you can easily miss signs and clues that an expert will be able to catch. Most of what you can purchase in-store for pest control won’t finish the job and may cause you to just cover up the problem before it gets worse. It will likely cost you more with DIY trials before calling in the experts and you can be sure that we’ll get rid of the problem.
