If you’ve ever had to deal with a large pest infestation, you know the challenges that need to be faced. Despite your efforts in sprays, powders, and prevention, pests somehow find a way to reemerge, leaving you stuck in a cycle of extermination and fruitless prevention.
Hiring a professional pest control service is often considered the best way to achieve permanent pest extermination, but many homeowners are hesitant due to the costs and reputation of using harsh chemicals. In reality, pest control companies are flexible in meeting all different budgets and providing non-toxic options that keep the home a healthier place to be.
Here are some other benefits of using a professional pest control service for your pest problems:
- Fast Jobs – Few pest control methods get rid of pests from homes as quickly as professional services do. From knowing how to pinpoint pest havens to using sweeping pesticide applicators, professionals are able to get rid of existing pests within a day and begin setting up preventative measures just as quickly.
- Non-Harmful Methods – The biggest misconception is that the chemicals professionals use causes more harm and damage to the home than needed to get rid of pest infestations. In severe cases, pest exterminators may use intense treatment as a last resort to get rid of pests, but even then, it is usually administered in doses to layer on effectiveness. There are also organic and green products that use non-toxic compounds to ward off pests, like those containing lemongrass oil, soybean oil, and even regular dish soap. It’s possible to find and use similar products found in stores, but professional exterminators have the tools to make it easier to spread across large areas.
- Strongest Guarantees – With speed, professional expertise, and experience, pest exterminators offer the strongest guarantee in getting rid of your current pest problem and helping you prevent future infestations. Spray pesticides, boric acid powders, and other do-it-yourself products offer temporary solutions that may work immediately, but often lose effectiveness after a certain number of uses. Some pests also become immune to certain pesticides, like bed bugs and DEET; pest professionals often carry the most recent version of pest control chemicals that introduce new ingredients to kill insecticide-immune pests.
Things to Keep in Mind
Professional pest control generally requires contracts or a set duration of services. Be mindful of deciding on terms that works best for you.
It also requires taking time to work with the pest exterminator, who may need entry into your home to see if indoor areas need treatment as well. This may entail taking time off from work or putting other priorities temporarily aside. However, professional companies are flexible enough to work around a convenient schedule.
