Did you know that every season is cockroach season in California? Technically, it’s only roach season year-round in more temperate areas. Places with colder winters see these pests die off during the winter.
Regardless, a neverending cockroach season should result in a call to your local pest control company to schedule an extermination. But how does a pest control company get rid of an infestation?
Below are various ways extermination services help remove unwanted pests from your home.
DIY pest control and extermination can become quite costly. Homeowners may pay tens of dollars for traps, baits, and sprays.
This seems cheap, but fees for these items could add up quickly, depending on the kind of pest problem.
For example, one or two rats may only need two or so traps. But an infestation of rats would likely be beyond your ability to handle. You also need to account for if the issue requires multiple rounds of treatment.
Paying a one-time fee to exterminate the rats via professionals may be cheaper than dealing with rapidly accumulating costs trying to DIY the issue.
Did you know many extermination and pest control companies offer free consultations and estimates?
Your chosen company may perform a no-cost search and discussion of your home for the source of your pest problem. The residence is thoroughly analyzed for potential weak spots, and you’re told how to fix them.
Once done, you’ll receive a free estimate of how much you can expect to pay for treatment. Having a reduced price on treatments can go a long way towards lowering stress.
You’re already dealing with an insect problem; you don’t need to worry about high costs.
Remember, it’s important to call (or visit the website) and inquire. Research is vital when choosing a pest control company.
Professional work is cheaper and more efficient. An expert team will recognize the signs of whatever infestation you’re dealing with and how to deal with it.
You probably think the ants in your kitchen and dirt piles around the house are harmless. Professional pest control may see it as a sign you’re dealing with an ant swarm.
Additionally, they’ll know how to track the origin of the infestation and how to stop it at its source. Professional exterminators can also identify bugs you may not know. If you don’t recognize a bug, you should probably leave it be.
DIY attempts may remove the pests from your home, but the average homeowner probably couldn’t deal with the source.
DIY pest control isn’t useless – it does help keep pests out of your residence – but it’s limited. There’s only so much store-bought extermination tools and keeping things clean can do.
Expert teams often offer inspections, consultations, and various treatment options to mitigate pest swarms.
Preventative maintenance technically isn’t about fixing an already existing infestation. Prevention keeps insects and rodents from entering or returning to your home.
However, exterminators will perform preventative tasks after an infestation to keep pests from returning.
Pre-treatments become post-treatment aid to ensure no large-scale attacks occur between scheduled visits.
Pests are home wreckers. Rats’ teeth can damage wood, plastic, and aluminum. Meanwhile, a large enough infestation of roaches can cause structural damage.
They often get into your walls and insulation, ruining the stability and temperature retention. Renovating these damages can become expensive, potentially more than extermination.
It may not be possible to avoid damages during an infestation. That means it’s vital that you deal with the issue quickly. The less time the pests spend in your residence, the less harm they can cause
Your local Walmart will have a wide selection of bug killers, rodent traps, and associated chemicals. But, they’ll be comparatively weaker than anything an exterminator would have at their disposal.
It’s reasonable that the more dangerous chemicals and tools wouldn’t be available for public use. The trade-off is you’re restricted to things that may not work on your unwanted guests.
Luckily, exterminators can safely use heavy-duty chemicals and pesticides. They’ll know how and where to apply them to achieve the most impact against your insect invaders.
Most of you undoubtedly find pests disgusting. But there’s more to the gross factor than “Ew, bugs!” Many pests carry harmful drugs and diseases. Roaches, for example, can cause dysentery and cholera.
Cockroaches also carry E. coli and salmonella on their bodies. Wasps and bees can cause potentially deadly allergic reactions. Dust mites are prone to exacerbating asthma.
Rats harbor illnesses like hantavirus and leptospirosis. Trying pest control on your own may expose you to these dangers. The typical homeowner doesn’t have the expertise to tackle bug extermination without risking their health.
The safest thing you can do is hire a professional to remove insects and rodents from your residence.
Knowledge makes any job that much easier. An expert pest control team will have the skills and tools to find the pest infestation and compose a plan to remove it at the source.
Their years of experience will lessen the time it takes to rid your home of the swarm. Meanwhile, the average homeowner wouldn’t know where to begin.
You could eliminate small groups of pests, but it’d take more time than you likely have at your disposal to handle the problem.
A pest control company’s job is to exterminate pests. But there’s more to the job than removing gross bugs and rodents. The job takes someone with the proper tools and training.
