The short answer is 100% yes! Pest control isn’t something you should only seek when you see suddenly find pests roaming your home. Unfortunately, this is exactly where most homeowners go wrong. They don’t worry about pest control until the problem arises. Or they consider pest control maintenance plans once a year at most – usually when spring arrives.
However, by not implementing a preventive pest control plan, you are only shooting yourself in the foot. The biggest concern with not considering early pest prevention is that insects multiply incredibly fast. If you don’t detect an infestation in its early stages, your property and pocket are likely to take a heavy blow.
The pest control professionals at Modern Pest Services know the importance of year-round pest control in keeping your home safe from invaders at all times. Our Homecare Green service provides protection from over 55 common household pests based on the unique pest pressures of the season.
Here are some of the main reasons why smart homeowners follow routine pest control maintenance plans:
Protect Your Home and Family
Pest infestation is one of every homeowner’s worst nightmares. Pests not only damage your property but also present a serious health hazard to all occupants. It’s true that some insects like domestic spiders may be nothing more than a nuisance. However, the majority of household pests usually pose more serious threats.
For example, rodents carry a whole host of diseases that they can easily spread to people and pets alike. Many of these diseases can have lifelong consequences and in extreme cases, prove fatal as well. Salmonella and hantavirus, for instance, are among the leading reasons for hospitalization due to rodent-related infections.
Similarly, cockroach infestations often lead to respiratory and skin issues as their feces and cast skin can contaminate indoor air. Moreover, these unsightly crawlers feed off garbage and sewage material. This means they are bound to spread disease-causing bacteria if they find a way into your home.
In addition to rodents and roaches, termites, dust mites, bedbugs, and moths are also a common threat for homeowners. Termites cause heavy (and usually hidden) structural damage, whereas dust mites can trigger an allergic reaction, especially for people with known breathing problems like asthma. Moths are notorious for eating through fabrics and upholstery. And needless to say, bedbugs will literally make you sleepless at night.
If you don’t want to fall victim to any of these problems, preventive, year-round pest control plans are a must.
DIY pest control can be difficult and ineffective. To begin with, it involves exceptionally strong chemical solutions that can cause breathing difficulties or skin and eye irritation if not used properly. Plus, with the plethora of pesticides available in the market nowadays, finding the right one can be easier said than done.
Let’s say you do thorough research and manage to choose the best product for your needs. Do you know the proper way to apply it?
Accidentally leaving even a minor crack or crevice untreated can render your DIY pest control program useless.
On the contrary, hiring a professional pest control company like Modern ensures complete peace of mind. Our expertly trained and licensed Service Professionals know the right pesticides for every room, nook, and cranny in your house. Additionally, they use sealants and other special supplies to close all possible entryways and keep these tiny invaders out.
Modern also uses environmentally friendly and cutting edge products in the smallest quantities that are still effective in eliminating issues.
More Economical Pest Control Solution
Routine pest control plans are always more affordable than emergency pest control treatments. This makes sense if you think about the overall costs and pest control methods associated with an infestation.
When you have a large insect population thriving in your living space, you will require a greater amount of materials and more labor to deal with it. If the pest elimination also involves any preliminary work, like temporarily moving household items or members out, more time and effort will be required. Likewise, if the infestation has caused property damage, the costs can accelerate quickly.
On the other hand, preventive treatment saves resources in every way. Although pest control maintenance services involve a greater number of visits by pest exterminators, it is not very time-consuming. And it is unlikely to cause any interruption in your daily activities either.
