Residential Pest Control
No matter how clean and sanitary you keep your home, insects are a potential problem. Timely removal of garbage, keeping your counters clean and regularly sweeping and mopping the floors removes the obvious food sources for insect infestation, but there are insects who can eat the glue off your wallpaper or the fibers in your carpet. It is impossible for an average homeowner, no matter how vigilant, to completely proof a home against invasion. Residential pest control is a necessity to keep your family safe and healthy.
Insects are more than just an inconvenience, they’re a threat. They carry and transmit various diseases. Many pests, cockroaches in particular, act as allergens that can inflame allergies and cause breathing problems in susceptible people. Insects directly damage property. Termites and other wood eating insects directly damage the structure of your home, and pests such as rodents can chew their way through electrical wiring and insulation creating damage that’s very expensive to repair and creates hazard risks such as fires. Pantry pests can make food stores inedible, fabric pests can destroy wardrobes, wallpaper and carpeting. Residential pest control maintains peace of mind, preserves the value of your investment and provides comfort and peace of mind for the homeowner.
Frequency of Service
Pest control should be performed on a regular schedule. Modern pest control products are designed to not only kill on contact, they also leave residual protection that can continue to kill pests on contact for up to 90 days. The frequency of your pest control service should take several factors into consideration including the type of insect present, the severity of the infestation and the environmental factors present. For instance, wet and warm environments will require more control than some other environments. Food storage areas require frequent and regular service. Some homeowners are willing to live with a certain amount of insect activity while others want complete eradication and prevention. If you live in an area with poisonous insects you may be more motivated towards strict control than otherwise. The most common service options are monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly, and all of the factors above will impact which level of service a homeowner chooses to implement.
