Every home at some time or another has unwelcome visitors such as spiders, fleas or ants. Bugs such as gnats are everywhere. They are a part of nature, but they don’t have to be a part of your home. Gnats in houseplants should be taken care of, too.
Check For Termites
Perhaps you have recently bought your home, or you have never had your home inspected for termites. Now is the time. Every year, termites cause millions of dollars of damage to homes in the southeast but, too often, homeowners don’t realize they have a problem until the termites are well established.
It is always a good time to ask for a free termite inspection from a pest control company.
Outdoor Pests And Insects
Whether you live in the city or the country, your home offers an open invitation to various insects and pests.
You may be able to ignore the bugs found outside your house in the landscaping mulch, in trees and shrubs growing close to the house, and in or near standing ponds and puddles of water – but in this case, ignorance is not bliss.
Unfortunately, the inside of your home is just a few hops or slithers away, offering a pleasant temperature and plenty to eat and drink. A pest control company can take care of these outdoor pests, thus protecting the interior of your home.
When There Is Infestation
It could be that too many of these aforementioned outdoor critters are already in your house. If that’s the case, it’s definitely time to call a pest control company.
Pest infestations are not merely annoying, disgusting, and embarrassing – they can also transmit diseases to your family and pose a serious threat to your property. Many insects including cockroaches, ants, and flies can carry diseases such as salmonella, E. coli, or other harmful bacteria.
In winter months, rodents trying to get out of the cold can cause damage to your home from chewing on wiring, wood and plaster. Without a doubt, you need help to control these unwanted pests.
And last but not least – scheduling. A company that puts their clients first is going to make themselves available. This means to service the same day you call or, at the very latest, the next day. If it’s more convenient for you to wait even later than that, that should be fine too.
If a technician doesn’t arrive within the scheduled time frame without calling prior to reschedule the service should no longer be charged. That’s right, it should be free. Find a pest control company that meets your criteria and give them the chance to earn your trust.
Any species that is a danger to your health or to your property is a pest. Calling in a professional means that you won’t have to deal with unwanted pests any longer than is necessary.
