There are often many misconceptions when it comes to pest control. We are clarifying a few key truths that we believe are important for you when it comes to pest control and protecting your home.
Truth #1: Killing only what you see won’t fix the problem! The pests you see are likely only a small representation of the bigger problem you have. For example, once you see termites, you typically already have a significant infestation. Termites can chew away at your home’s structure and produce thousands of eggs per day, all without giving a single sign of their presence.
Truth #2: Trial and error for pest control solutions can add up quickly. You may see a bug indoors and run to the store for a quick solution however what most people do not realize is that all products function differently and target different species. You also may not be aware of the safest methods to terminate your pest problem.
Truth #3: A clean home doesn’t guarantee a pest-free home! A clean home is a good start to keeping pests out. But your crumbs aren’t the only thing pests crave. Pests such as rodents look for warmth, and other pests, such as cockroaches seek the comfort of moisture. To help keep your home pest-free eliminate areas of moisture, seal cracks and block holes, try to declutter and keep pantry foods sealed.
Truth #4: Pests can be hitchhikers! They can hitch onto you and your family members. From visiting an infested house to leaving luggage on a bug-ridden hotel floor, to leaning your backpack against a tree—you might be your own worst enemy. Be sure to inspect your clothing, luggage and any other items entering your home.
