You’ve tried store-bought fixes and home remedies. Your pest problem may have temporarily subsided, but your infestation is back again. If you’ve tried and tried again, it's time to call in reinforcements. Here are just a few signs that you should enlist the help of pest control professionals.
1. Heavy Infestations
Whether it’s been a growing issue that you’ve simply ignored or a sudden surprise of the worst kind, an infestation is nothing to mess around with. A heavy infestation is impossible to ignore. It isn't just an ant here or there during the summer; it isn't seeing one mouse out in your yard; it isn't killing one mosquito out at the pool. It's a noticeable problem that can quickly become a headache and send your stress level into overdrive.
When dealing with a heavy infestation, professional pest control services can be highly effective, saving you time and quickly alleviating stress and and discomfort. Pest control professionals are trained to deal with pests in any quantity, so set your troubles aside, and enlist a pro for help when you need it.
2. Reoccurring Issues
The quantity of pests may not be an issue for you, but if you’re experiencing a reoccurring problem, it may be time to call in a pro. Many pests can be difficult to track down because they build their nests away from the areas where they are active in your home; so, you may be merely scratching the surface with your treatments. Pest control professionals can track, identify, and exterminate pests at their source.
3. Risk of Damage
Pests aren’t just annoying; they can cause damage to your home and your health. When you’re dealing with harmful pests, time is of the essence. The longer you wait, the more damage will be done. Here are some examples of serious harm that pests can cause:
- Mice: Rodents destroy enough food each year to feed over 200 million people.
- Termites: Each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage.
- Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes cause nearly 800,000 human deaths each year.
Don’t get too comfortable just because the pest you’re dealing with isn’t on this short list. Whether it’s spiders, moles, or anything in between, if the presence of pests is impeding your quality of life, a professional can help protect you, your family, and your home from harm.
