Pest management is a huge part of homeownership, but most people tend to avoid setting up regular service until there’s a problem.
No matter where you live or how old your house is, there is likely some type of pest that has made its way into your home.
So why do we tend to wait until the problem presents itself to take action? If the right steps are taken, you can avoid ever having a pest problem in the first place.
Pest control performed on a regular basis helps prevent potential health risks and serious issues disruptive to the daily routines of you and your family.
What Is A Preventative Pest Service Visit?
Most providers perform a variety of services to prevent pest problems.
During each of the scheduled yearly visits, your skilled and professional technician will thoroughly inspect your home, treat when and where necessary, and provide a detailed report.
The technician should always use the least amount of material as possible in your home to keep the bugs and rodents out.
The right techniques have an extraordinarily high success rate in keeping pests out, however it’s impossible to guarantee they never come into your home. Therefore, yearly “check up” plans are encouraged.
What Can I Do To Prevent Pests Between Service Visits?
The best way to prevent pests is to adopt habits that make your home an unappealing pest environment. You can do this by following these simple steps:
- Keep your home free of food crumbs
- Monitor areas that are prone to leaks (toilets, air conditioners, faucets, etc.)
- Sweep, vacuum, and dust regularly
If you see a serious issue that needs to be resolved before your next scheduled visit, don’t hesitate to reach out to your provider to schedule something sooner!
