An active pest infestation is something you want to deal with right away. Leaving things up to chance or trying to handle the situation yourself can often allow the problem to linger or grow worse.
The sooner you arrest the damage that pests are allowed to do to your home or workplace, the sooner you can get the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you, your home, and your family are safe.
Reasons Contacting the Professionals Early Matters
A pest problem could damage your home and may even put the health and safety of you and your family in jeopardy. Indoor pests like rats, mice, cockroaches, and moths can also damage your possessions (like stored clothes) and leave offensive odors and droppings in their wake.
Reason #1: The Pros Know Where to Check
You might find pests in your home coming from unexpected quarters. For example, cockroaches like to make their homes in dark nooks and crannies (such as behind refrigerators), while pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause a lot of structural damage to your wood. In some cases, this damage can go undetected until the situation is severe.
Reason #2: Professionals Use the Right Tools the First Time
Pest control professionals can come to your New England home or place of business and perform a thorough visual inspection. A professional will be able to identify any traces of possible pest infestations through a careful visual inspection of your bed, furniture, closets, crawl space, and basement.
Pest control experts are on the lookout for wood markings (beetles and termites), dropping (mice), and conspicuous dots on your walls. They use passive and active devices to solve pest problems. Passive devices trap and eliminate pests without actively attracting pests; active devices take more aggressive action when a visual inspection has revealed evidence of a pest infestation.
Reason #3: Professionals Save Time in Detection and Elimination
A lot of ways in which pest control specialists help homeowners can be taken for granted. For example, you can waste time misidentifying wasps as bees or termites as beetles—and, as a result, you might apply an ineffective treatment because you’ve misidentified the problem.
Pest control experts have decades of experience in identifying and eliminating the most common pests for New England homes and businesses.
The professionals know the likely entry points for particular kinds of pests and know how to control and block those entry points. If pests have made inroads into your home, they know how to eliminate those pests as quickly as possible.
Reason #4: Pest Control Is More Affordable Than You Might Think
When you factor in the costs of property damage and loss of home value—not to mention the damage to your furniture, clothes, and perhaps even your health—getting a pest infestation cleared up immediately can save you thousands of dollars.
Reason #5: You Can Avoid Home and/or Structural Damage
Left unattended, pests like termites and wood-boring beetles can harm the wooden foundation and supports in your home.
This could imperil the long-term value of your home and the short-term health of its occupants. Why take the chance? Other pests like cockroaches can create very unpleasant odors and burrow into food—yuck! A visual inspection and elimination can eradicate pests for good.
